Our Earth is warming.
Earth’s average temperature has risen by 1.5°F over the past century, and is projected to rise another 0.5 to 8.6°F over the next hundred years. Small changes in the average temperature of the planet can translate to large and potentially dangerous shifts in climate and weather.
The evidence is clear.
Rising global temperatures have been accompanied by changes in weather and climate. Many places have seen changes in rainfall, resulting in more floods, droughts, or intense rain, as well as more frequent and severe heat waves. The planet’s oceans and glaciers have also experienced some big changes – oceans are warming and becoming more acidic, ice caps are melting, and sea levels are rising. As these and other changes become more pronounced in the coming decades, they will likely present challenges to our society and our environment. Photo cover courtesy www.meteoweb.eu
The humorist is like a satellite, is part of the world, but lives it smiling and looking with philosophical detachment.
We wish to emphasize that unlike the satire that is limited to denigrate his target, humor has the power to lead to reflection by the smile and the great merit of revealing the substance over appearance.
