Island factories are harming the atmosphere with sky-high levels of industrial pollution. As an international watch-dog with a wicked speed-boat, you have to make sure they know and abide by the Kyoto Treaty.
Facts About Climate Change
- Climate Change is a global problem that needs a global solution. No country can solve the problem of climate change on its own, so everyone needs to work together to make sure that in 20 years we can all live as well as we do now.
- Climate Change is caused by greenhouse gases, produced by the burning of fuels like oil, gas and coal. The gases get trapped in the atmosphere and cause the surface temperature of the Earth to rise.
- The Americans make up only 4% of the world's population, yet we are responsible for more than 25% of the world's greenhouse gases. We need to be more responsible and do something to turn this situation around.
- The Kyoto Protocol is an international treaty in which 140 countries agree to reduce their production of greenhouse gases and global warming. While the U.S. hasn't signed this treaty, it's not too late for us to do something. Let's do our part to stop climate change!
