Quand le réchauffement climatique cause plus de réchauffement climatique
Le réchauffement climatique est l’une des grandes problématiques du vingt-et-unième siècle. La température mondiale et le niveau des mers augmentent chaque année. En cause notamment la pollution.

Et ils feraient bien de se dépêcher, car une étude de juin dernier montre que le réchauffement climatique pourrait bien s’accélérer de lui-même.
