There is scientific evidence that rapid climate change is taking place today. This evidence includes a rise in global temperatures 🌡️, warming oceans 🌊, shrinking ice sheets, glacial retreat, decreased snow cover ❄️, sea-level rise, and more. Responding to climate change involves can be done in two-parts: mitigation and adaptation. Mitigation is where scientific research and technological advancements come into play. They can help us in reducing emissions 🚘 and stabilizing greenhouse gases 🏭.

Dans le sud de la France 🇫🇷, près de Provence, il se trouve une forêt 🌲 🌳 qui sert de laboratoire pour étudier les effets du changement climatique. Dû au réchauffement de la planète 🌎, il y aura de plus en plus de sécheresse ☀️. L'objectif de la recherche qui se fait dans cette forêt et de mieux comprendre comment les arbres réagiront. Il y a déjà des résultats qui sortent de ce laboratoire. Par exemple, la croissance des arbres en zone de sécheresse est ralentie, et la biodiversité ☘️ 🐿️ de cette zone et beaucoup moindre.
