Fact #3: These gases are directly responsible for the greenhouse effect, which causes global warming.

Fact #4: While there are natural climate changes that have always affected the Earth, these are long-term changes. 

Fact #5:
The recent global warming is not one of these - it is way too quick and dramatic to be a natural change.  

Fact #6: The average temperature of the Earth is not only increasing but also accelerating, and so are the carbon emissions. 

Fact #7: Both Arctic and Antarctic sea ice have been melting at a much quicker rate than what was expected. Consequently the sea levels have also rosen quicker than what was expected.

Fact #8: At the current pace of carbon dioxide emissions, we may have an ice-free world by 2050-2100. This means a massive increase of sea level with coastal cities drowned and millions of homeless people who will become environmental refugees.
