Future Survey;Jan2008, Vol. 30 Issue 1, p11
A review of the article "Changing Climate," a supplement in the October 2007 issue of the "National Geographic," is presented. It is stated that human activity is the main cause of the rapid occurrence of climate change. The atmosphere has been flooded with heat trapping carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels. It is warned that unless carbon dioxide emissions are slashed, the planet will likely heat up even faster.
