Goal 13: Climate action

When we burn fossil fuels like oil and coal, the amount of CO2 in the air increases, which is linked with rising temperatures. When temperatures rise, there are more natural disasters like typhoons and floods. Also, ice starts melting at the poles, sea levels rise, and land masses become smaller.

Now, let’s try a quiz!

In the 100 years or so until 2010, how much did sea levels rise because of the effects of global warming?

 A. About 19 cm
 B. About 9 cm
 C. About 1.9 cm

Next, try the quiz and pick the answers you think are correct.
