3. A
Carl Sagan studies over Venus’s atmosphere led to his concern over planet Earth

4. B
The World Heath Organization contributes 150,000 deaths per year on the effects of global warming include extreme weather, drought, heat waves, decreased food production, and the increase of the spread of disease. (The World Heath Organization)

5. D
100 years (National Geographic) which means that the effects would be felt decades after.
