A Sick Planet

Planet Earth. It sure is beautiful, and it’s also very unique and special, because under its thin atmosphere, it supports life. But there’s a problem. Did you know that the Earth is sick? It has come down with a fever. In fact, the last ten years were the hottest ever recorded. This never-before-seen warming is part of something scientists call “Rapid Climate Change.”
