Lets start now, and change! We dont have much time.
A United Nations panel in 2007 predicted the following future events would occur because of climate changes around the world.
2009: The world population nears 7 billion as more people now live in cities than in rural areas, changing patterns of land use and adding to smog
2018: Global oil production peaks between 2008 and 2018, triggering a global recession, food shortages and conflicts between nations over dwindling supplies.
2020: Flash floods increase across Europe. Less rainfall reduces agriculture yields by up to 50 percent in some areas. Population reaches 7.6 billion.
2030: Up to 18 percent of the world's coral reefs are lost as a result of the changing climate and other environmental stresses.
2050: Large glaciers shrink by 30 to 70 percent as a quarter of the world's plant and vertebrate animal species face extinction.
2070: As warmer, drier conditions lead to more frequent and longer droughts, electricity production for the world's existing hydropower stations decreases.
2080: Between 1.1 and 3.2 billion people experience water shortages and up to 600 million go hungry.
2040: The Arctic Sea is ice-free in the summer, and winter ice depth shrinks drastically. Some say this won't happen until 2060 to 2105.
2085: The number of people at risk of dengue fever from climate change increases to 3.5 billion.
