  8. 8. Change in global surface temperature relative to 1951-1980 average temperatures. 2016 ranks as warmest year. https://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/global-temperature/
  9. 9. The change in global temperature in the past 150 years is much greater than anything we saw in the past 11,000 years https://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424127887323628804578346140587268534

  12. 12. Question # 3 What changes in water level are happening?

  14. 14. On a yearly basis, an estimated 500 million people are affected by flooding. Due to climate change, flooding events are increasing in frequency and severity. http://www.swissre.com/rethinking/climate_and_natural_disaster_risk/floods_an_insurable_peril_yet_underinsured.html
  15. 15. In recent years, global disasters have demonstrated the dangers of relying on single suppliers, single factories, or single logistics operations. Examples  Iceland’s volcanic ash cloud that swept across Northern Europe in 2010.  Japan’s nuclear disaster at Fukushima.  The floods in Thailand in 2011. https://www.bcgperspectives.com/content/articles/globalization_leadership_talent_five_things_every_ceo_must_do_next_era_globalization/

  19. 19. Question # 5 What changes in the earth’s crust are happening?
  20. 20. The largest earthquakes happen when 2 plates move towards each other. Typically when this happens, one plate starts sliding under the other. The friction involved in this “subduction” will produce both earthquakes, such as the tsunami-generating one off Japan in 2011, and volcanoes, the fires of which are fed by the melting of the deep crust. http://www.economist.com/blogs/economist-explains/2015/04/economist-explains-26
  21. 21. There are 7 large plates made up from the earth’s crust:  The African plate.  The Antarctic plate.  The Eurasian plate.  The Indo-Australian plate.  The North American plate.  The Pacific plate.  The South American plate. http://www.economist.com/blogs/economist-explains/2015/04/economist-explains-26
  22. 22. Question # 6 What changes are happening to glaciers?
  23. 23. From 1902 to 2001, the Jakobshavn Glacier near Ilulissat, Greenland retreated 8 miles. From 2000 to 2010, the glacier has retreated more than that. https://www.virgin.com/virgin-unite/leadership-and-advocacy/greenlands-getting-greener
