Global warming can cause many problems. From 1880 to 2010 the average temperature of the earth increased .8 degrees celsius. Now this may not see like much but if it continues on this pattern we don't know what will happen. A mere 1 degree increase could cause catastrophic consequences. wind patterns could change, climates could get warmer in some areas and colder in others, there could be a drought, melting glaciers may release a disease we can't fight off, sea levels could rise, and many more unpredictable things could happen. The question is how are we going to fix it.
