The world is getting warm fast – level 1

19-07-2024 15:00

World leaders meet in 2015. They set the limit for global warming. The limit is 1.5°C.

But last year, the world’s temperature goes up by 1.52°C. Experts worry about nature and our food. Bad weather is happening all over the world. We need to do something. The US and China are trying, but we need to do more. If we do not do something quickly, things will get even worse. The Earth is getting hotter, and we need to stop it. We need to listen to experts and work together to make things better.

Governments and people around the world must take action to protect our planet for the future.

Difficult words: limit (the highest number or level which is possible), take action (to do something to stop a problem), protect (to keep something safe).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
