According to NASA, climate change of this rate and scale has already taken its toll. Glaciers have shrunk, the break-up of ice on waterways is happening earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted, and trees are going into full bloom earlier in the season. What we are seeing now is significant loss of sea ice, rising sea levels, and more intense droughts and floods.

If left unchecked, elevated carbon emissions will have a significant impact on several other aspects of our planet:
