An amazing interactive map produced by the BBC allows us to check temperatures projected for 2100 around the globe.
So far, the average temperature of Earth has increased by 1 degree Celsius. Life as we know it will change significantly even if we manage to meet the 1.5 degree warming goal of the Paris Agreement, but there is actually little chance of that. If warming continues at the present rate, the global average temperature could increase by 3 to 5 degrees Celsius by the end of the century relative to conditions before the industrial revolution.
Based on warming forecasts, the BBC have designed an interactive map that shows future average temperatures for individual cities, according to both pessimistic and optimistic climate change scenarios.
More than a quarter of all mammals are threatened with extinction.
Between 1 May and 30 August, higher than ever temperatures have been measured in 29 countries, on almost 400 occasions in the Northern Hemisphere.

A report from the investment bank Goldman Sachs claims that climate change is putting the world’s cities in danger.
The most spectacular effects of climate change are associated with waters: as a result of global warming, glaciers melt, oceans rise, greater and greater floods threaten coast dwellers, while elsewhere, drought, desertification and water shortages cause great problems, as shown in these shocking photos.
The winning photos of the Ciwem Environmental Photographer of the Year 2019 Awards are painful reminders of the consequences of climate change and environmental destruction.
The unfavourable effects of global warming are already placing a significant burden on people’s health all around the world.
