II. Fill in the gaps with prepositions where necessary. In places where should be no prepositions write "-"

If global temperatures rise 2 degrees Celsius, the chances of avoiding a 3-degree increase are slim. The buildup of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere adds the global warming. According scientists, a 2-degree rise will kill 10% of the Amazon rainforest. Huge amounts of carbon are stored in the soil, around double the amount is already in the atmosphere. 3 degrees plants stop absorbing CO2. If the excess of carbon in the atmophere raises the temperatures 1,5 degree, the planet will be tipped runaway global warming. In this future, hurricanes are much stronger and cities in Asia, Australia and the South East United States face distruction. Grain yields decline by 10% for every degree 30 degrees Celsius. The low-lying areas suffer floods and the Netherlands are torn by the North sea.
