5 categories of change in climate

Climate change is adversely affecting all parts of the earth. There have been dramatic increases in greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) globally since the industrial revolution of the 19th century. The planet warms faster as more GHGs are added to the earth's atmosphere. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, expressing the global scientific consensus, warns that “global net human-caused emissions of CO2 need to fall by about 45% from 2010 levels by 2030, reaching 'net zero' around 2050."
