Environmental Awareness Training
According to the World Meteorological Organisation, 2016 was the hottest year on record. Some see this as just a natural fluctuation in temperatures causing cooling and warming similar to the ice ages of the past.
Others see it as a direct result of our industrialisation and the burning of fossil fuels which caused an increase of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. CO2 is the main gas which forms a blanket over the Earth, restricting the sun’s heat from escaping. This is referred to as “global warming.” This “global warming” has led to changes in our weather.
