Wild: Australia's Wilderness Adventure Magazine;Apr-Jun2008, Issue 108, p65
The article highlights the fourth Global Environment Outlook (GEO-4) report on climate change from the United Nations (UN) in 2008. The report states that the average global temperatures have climbed by 0.74° Celsius (C) during the past century and predicts further increases of between 1.8 and 4° C by 2100. It stresses that world leaders must begin to deal with global warming to secure the survival of future generations.
