According to NASA, The planet’s average surface temperature has risen about 2.12 degrees Fahrenheit since the late 19th century. This has mostly been cause to an increase in carbon dioxide emissions into the air. NASA notes that “carbon dioxide from human activity is increasing more than 250 times faster than it did from natural sources after the last Ice Age.”
Along with carbon dioxide emissions, global sea levels are also on the rise, growing 8 inches higher in the past 100 years. Greenland and Antartica have lost a combined average of 427 billion tons of ice each year from 1993 until 2019.
Because of this, it is important to fund initiatives that work to improve climate conditions and bring awareness to issues like these and others. Grants are a good way to get funding to these organizations and individuals fighting for change.
