Humanity is facing several problems due to climate change, and these effects may likely increase soon. As temperatures keep increasing, producing significant effects on all habitat types, how can animals and plants adapt to such rapid changes? Moreover, what are we as humans responsible for global warming are dealing with it? Can we answer these questions? Do we know to reverse the ongoing conditions, and if so, what is being done worldwide? Finally, how is the “political weather” addressing climate change?
