In this article, the author discusses the top 10 things people need to know about climatic changes. By burning coal, oil and gas for industry and transport, to heat homes and workplaces and produce food, humans are increasing the level of greenhouse gases. Climate scientists and key scientific institutions, such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, The Royal Society, the U.S. National Academies and the World Meteorological Organization agree climate change is happening.
