Climate Change Computer Simulation

Over the past few weeks I ran a climate simulation using a computer program called EdGcm. It basically lets you change factors that contribute to global warming and project them into the future. The increase of CO2 over the past 50 years has been slowly increasing over the years. Last year it increase by about 1.8ppm (parts per million). In this simulation i used and increase of 2.0ppm over the next 90 years. The video shows the effect of this increase in 2100. Basically, if we do nothing these are the effects we can expect...
