For instance, if 1 million households replaced four traditional light bulbs with the much more energy efficient fluorescent variety, we could eliminate approximately 500,000 tonnes of carbon emissions per year.
The warmer waters may cause the death of the Great Barrier Reef, placing thousands of species of plants and animals in danger, and many may become extinct.
The future will see polar icecaps melt due to the increasing temperatures.
