Given the current trend, the children of the future might live in hell—literally


Modern humans have been around for 300,000 years but in the last century we have developed technologies capable of significantly affecting the planet. Scientists are confident that global average temperatures will continue to increase due to greenhouse gases produced by human activities.

"Taken as a whole, the range of published evidence indicates that the net damage costs of climate change are likely to be significant and to increase over time."
–Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
