Greenhouse gases trap heat in our atmosphere leading to rising global temperatures, melting of land and sea ice, rising oceans, devastating heat waves, floods and more.
The years 2014 through 2018 were the warmest in the modern record and 18 of the 19 hottest years have occurred since 2001, according to NASA and NOAA scientists. The record-breaking heat in France and the Netherlands in summer 2019 was made 10 times more likely due to climate change, and in Germany, 8 times more likely. And climate change caused the heat wave to be hotter by 2.5 to 5 degrees Farenheit.
