If you look at the dirty, stuffy air, cloudy skies, hot air and the increasingly frequent extreme weather, these are some of the signs and symptoms caused by global warming. We are already aware that such a phenomenon occurs due to the prolonged burning of fossil fuels, which has taken place since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the mid-18th century.

On the other hand, we also often read news that arctic icebergs have begun to break up and melt. The sea level has also increased, which has led to predictions that coastal cities, including Jakarta, will be submerged within a decade or two. We are also used to hearing the news, this year is the warmest year in the last century.
