Global Climate Change changes everything CO2 changes plant behavior Increases temperature of the atmosphere, the earths crust and the oceans Affects global hydro cycle
Summers will be scorchers These maps show the projected increase in average daily July heat index relative to the present. The largest increases are in the southeastern states, where the Canadian model projects increases of more than 25°F. For example, a July day in Atlanta that now reaches a heat index of 105°F would reach 115°F in the Hadley model, and 130°F in the Canadian model.
