Warm World – level 1

21-01-2020 07:00

The world is getting warmer. Two recent studies prove it. Scientists start to measure the world’s temperature in 1880. The hottest year is 2016. The second hottest year is 2019.

Scientists say that there is a lot of heat in the oceans. This is a big problem. Sea levels are going up.

Scientists also say that every 10 years is warmer than the last 10 years. The temperature in 2019 is 1.7 degrees warmer than the average temperature in the last 100 years.

Scientists believe that mainly people make these problems. People make very many chemicals. They are dangerous for the world’s atmosphere and oceans.

Difficult words: prove (to show evidence that something is true), sea level (how high the water is in the ocean), average (the normal number, the number that we get when we add up total amounts and divide that number by the number of amounts), atmosphere (the area around the planet where our air is).
