NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York calculated that the Earth’s temperature has been warming at a rate of 0.19 degrees Celsius per decade for the past 30 years. Moreover records from Antarctica ice cores show that the global temperature is within 1 degree Celsius of reaching the highest temperature in the last one million years. And human-induced CO2 levels have reached an unprecedented level not seen on the planet since the middle of the Pliocene, over three million years ago. Can science, technology and entrepreneurs slow down our globe from overheating? Yes.
