Climate Change Quiz – 15 Questions

Question 2: How much has our planet warmed already, on average? 
0.5 degrees Celsius 
No, 1 degree Celsius is the right answer. According to the BBC in 2015: “Figures from January to September this year are already 1.02 degrees Celsius above the average between 1850 and 1900. If temperatures remain as predicted, 2015 will be the first year to breach this key threshold. The world would then be half way towards 2 degrees Celsius, the gateway to dangerous warming.”
