Understanding Knowledge…
Knowledge as maturity?
Unless we change our behavior, global warming may be at 
the origin of unseen catastrophes

The difference of 0.3°C cannot be explained 
statistically and may point to climate change

During the Summer, the average temperature 
for Brussels is 18.1°C.  Over the past decade, 
the average was18.4°C

18.1 – 18.4
