The Earth naturally goes through cycles of warming up and cooling down when looking at the recorded history of Earth’s yearly temperatures and having knowledge about historical events like the Ice Age. So typically, the current climb in the Earth’s temperature shouldn’t be too alarming to scientists. However, in recent years, the accelerating higher temperatures [...]
