Climate change is often misunderstood as just warmer temperatures, but this is only the beginning of the story. As an interconnected system, when the earth changes in one area it can influence changes worldwide. While long-term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns can be natural, since the 1800s these shifts have been predominantly driven by human activities (e.g. burning fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas). The consequences include, among others, severe fires, rising sea levels, catastrophic storms and declining biodiversity. Join Duke experts as we dive into the effects climate change has on our physical world and what can be done about it.
