Goal 13 – Climate Change: an introduction

Scheuer (2015, p. 3)

Climate change is caused by global warming that in turn is caused by the production of greenhouse gases from human activities such as burning oil and coal.

Climate change is a major problem as shifting weather patterns, rising sea levels and extreme weather is causing deaths and injuries, property and environmental damage and the dislocation of millions of people at an unprecedented level (United Nations, 2017).
