It is believed that climate change may be the primary cause of future catastrophes. Since 1906, the global average temperature has increased significantly due to the emission of greenhouse gases. The ice is melting worldwide especially near the polar regions. This includes mountain glaciers, ice sheets covering Antarctica and the arctic sea ice. Many Species like penguins and polar bears have been impacted by rising temperatures and certain invasive species like beetles have increased in number. There has also been a significant increase in precipitation across the globe.
