From rapid temperature rises to extreme snowfall, melting snow caps and raging typhoons – the sudden change in climate has been a major cause of concern for all in recent years. These statistics were recently released in the 4th Global Environmental Outlook [GEO-4] and 4th Assessment Report

  Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, as is now evident from observations of increases in global average air and ocean temperatures, widespread melting of snow and ice, and rising global average sea level  
  Anthropogenic greenhouse gas [GHG] emissions (principally CO2), are the main drivers of climate change and since 1987 there has been continuing rise in these emissions.  
  The warming over this century is projected by the UNEP/WMO’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to be between a further 0.18 and 4°C– well above the threshold.  
  The corresponding sea level rise ranges from 0.18 to 0.59 metres by 2100. This will intensify the impacts of climate change, leading to potentially massive consequences.
