An Inconvenient Truth
GLOBAL WARMING

We're drowning

  1. According to IPCC 2007 report, sea levels will rise by 16-63 inches by the end of this century due to global warming. Enough to swallow Miami, New York, Kerala and Maldives.
  2. The Arctic ice is melting rapidly. By 2040 the region is expected to have a completely ice free summer, or even earlier.
  3. Between the years 1961 and 1997, the world’s glaciers lost 890 cubic miles of ice.
  4. How to overcome this crisis: Drive less. Take bikes, walk or carpool whenever possible. Transportation sector is second largest contributor of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.
