Description:

The Earth warmed by almost two degress Fahrenheit since 1880.  This seemingly small increase in global warming explains why much of the land ice on the planet is starting to melt, the oceans are rising at an accelerating pace, and weather extremes are becoming common. Climate researchers have concluded that human activities associated with the release of greenhouse gases are the primary culprit.

Seth B. Darling, Ph.D. is a scientist at Argonne National Laboratory in the Center for Nanoscale Materials and is a Fellow at the Insitute for Molecular Enginnering at the University of Chicago.
