Prime examples of how climate change is affecting people and the environment are popping up everywhere. Olympic National Park's rainforest in Washington state caught fire. California is suffering its worst drought in a millennium, experienced a 50-acre brush fire. Puerto Rico experienced its strictest water rationing in history.

NASA climatologist, James Hansen, also the first to warn people about climate change in 1988 explains that feedback shows that average sea levels may rise 10 times faster than predicted, and could be 10 feet higher by 2065.
