Mount Kilimanjaro and global warming

Use slides and write a paper on global warming and Mount Kilimanjaro.

But that our planet is warming significantly is not disputed by anyone. That this acceleration is now 10,000 times faster than it has been for the rest of human history is also common knowledge.

The topics should have a strong emphasis on chemistry, be based on factual information and expert knowledge, and use only top peer-reviewed journals covering the most current news on the subject.
