But just how much can the climate change in the next 90 years?
NASA shows you what could happen in new visualizations that you can download to your computer or iPad.
The visualizations show the possible difference between low and high emission scenarios.
Emissions are the greenhouse gases added to the environment.
A build up of greenhouse gasses traps more of the sun's energy, which in turn can raise the overall global temperature.
The NASA visualizations look at possible temperature and precipitation changes from the years 2000 to 2100.
