In the statistical distribution of weather condition and its perfect pattern in an amount of time ranging from decades to centuries to millions of years, a substantial, long-lasting and drastic change is largely known as Climate change. It may be a change in more or fewer extreme weather events or in the distribution of weather more or less the average conditions or in average weather conditions. With the usage of theoretical models and observations methods, scientists, experts and specialists in this particular field actively works in order to perfectly understand past and future climate under certain situation and circumstances.
Over the course of recent history, much concern has been raised over the industrial revolution and the potential climate changes that it might be causing. It has been stated by global warming theorist that C02 emissions caused by human technologies are causing the world to warm, which will cause negative climate changes. The Earth may be experiencing a global warming trend and climate change; however, the process of climate change is outside of human control because human activity can barely account for any of the C02 level increases. Attempts to reduce human C02 emissions is needlessly expensive, and will have a negligible role in preventing or slowing any climatic changes such as global warming or an impending ice age. People must be prepared to adapt to the climatic changes that occur, because it is unlikely that human intervention will postpone them or limit the impact of their arrival.
Climate and Weather are both conditions of our atmosphere. Weather is a condition over short period of time, the degrees, if it’s raining, snowing, windy, etc. and climate is over long period of time, if you live in a more tropical place it would be more wet, humid, and hot. Climate is basically what the weather usually is the normal conditions in a place, a longer term of the average weather. Depending on where you live will determine what the climate is there and what kind of weather you will usually have and now sense there’s global warming and the colder places are getting warmer, warmer places are getting a blast of cold and polar ice caps are melting. So now It’s probably different climate and weather for many, many places than it was just four or five years ago. For examples If you live down south near the equator where it’s hot, like in Tampa, Florida your climate is humid and hot most the year and temperatures in the high 80’s and high 90’s. But if you live somewhere more up north closer to the north pole, like in Manchester, England it’s usually cold and raining most the year with temperatures of high 40’s and mid 60’s.
Climate change is a long term change in the earth’s climate. Climate change is attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels. There are 328,000,000 cubic miles of seawater on the planet, covering approximately 71 percent of the earth's surface. Ninety-seven percent of all water is in the oceans. The other three percent is divided amongst the two percent ice and one percent fresh water. Making earth’s waters composed mostly of salt water. Salt water covers most of our planet indicating climate change to have a giant impact on our oceans. Taking a closer look at the ocean and our water in general can reveal several clues to the greater effects of climate change and what other ways climate change can affect our planet. (2)
Climate change, otherwise known as global warming, has grown more apparent in recent years, with increased natural disasters, significantly warmer temperatures and unreasonably long seasons. Global warming is one of the main concerns that scientists have been researching for the past century. Scientific evidence shows that global warming is caused by human behaviors. Due to the amount of human-induced carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that have been released into the air, the earth is becoming a highly poisonous place to live on. Earth’s climate has been constantly changing ever since the Industrial Revolution, when innovations began and factories were built, which emitted mass air pollution. As more technological advances continued the years after, the amount of carbon dioxide in the air also increased. According to the UPI Space Daily News, “Global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) - the main cause of global warming - increased by 45% between 1990 and 2010, and reached an all-time high of 33 billion tonnes in 2010” (Writers 1). The 1900s through the 2000s is the time period in which humans caused the most air pollution by creating vehicles and other industrial machinery. In the contemporary time period, human activities that contribute to climate change consist of hydraulic fracturing, rice cultivation, the increase of fossil fuel burning, and the rise of deforestation.
The effects of climate are felt throughout the world, all living things are affected with it. The effects of climate change are affecting directly the human life. It has been noticed that around the globe, seasons are shifting, temperatures are climbing and sea levels are rising. The world compares to century ago, it has changed drastically and it is becoming worse with climate change. Climate change will rapidly alter the lands and waters which we all depends upon for survival which will leave our children thus the future generation with a different world. In the time to come if not much is done for the case of climate change, There will be shortage of food and drinks, many new illnesses and diseases and some part of the world will become in appropriate for living things to live due to natural disaster. It can be that with the rapid Global warming and climate change, one-fourth of Earth’s species could be headed for extinction by the year 2050.
Climate change is one of the most serious and profound challenges we are facing right now. What is climate change? And how does it affect our lives? Right now there are many people do not believe climate change is real and climate change will have impacts on their lives. Climate change refers to the statistically significant change in average state of the climate over time. The greater the dispersion, the greater the magnitude of climate change, and the greater the magnitude of climate change, the more unstable the climate. The statistics of climatic factors such as temperature and precipitation are usually reflected in different periods. The length of change varies from the longest to the shortest. Climate change can cause by many factors.
... and feed grains (Nyong, 2008). Higher temperatures can the physiological development of crops such as causing increased respirations, shorter periods of seed formation and reduced biomass production which all result in hastened maturation and reduced crop yields (Adejuwon, 2004). Global warming and drought have affected the change in the incidence and distribution of pests and pathogens which presents challenges for crop management and animal rearing. Moisture and temperature are important elements of climate which determine the occurrence and localization of pests and diseases (Adejuwon, 2004). This is because pests and diseases vectors thrive well in optimum conditions of high temperature and abundant water supply. In this way climate change and global warming has extended the range of distribution of some pests and diseases worsening the plight of farmers.
The purpose of this paper is to investigate whether global warming could affect the thermohaline circulation cycle (THC) significantly enough that it could even shut it down and thus cause a shift in the climate of Europe severe enough to cause another Little Ice Age. To answer the question about whether global warming could cause another ice age, I have divided this paper into segments. The first will explain what the thermohaline circulation cycle is. Next, I will look at the last interglacial period and observe what the conditions were like especially in respect to the THC. I will look at how the last interglacial led to the last great Ice Age, and the sudden demise of that Ice Age, as well as the nearly equally sudden cooling that occurred in the Younger Dryas about 12,000 years ago before the warming resumed in earnest shortly thereafter. In the final part of this paper I will look at two different predictions of what could happen as a result of the melting of the North Atlantic region's ice sheets with respect to the THC and how it could affect the regional climate in Europe.
The earth is a complex system, which continues to evolve and change. Climate change and global warming are currently popular in the political agenda. But what does “climate” really mean? The difference between weather and climate can be conveyed in a single sentence: “Climate is what you expect; weather is what you get.” Based on research of the geologic record, we know that climate change has happened throughout Earth's history and at present, ever-increasing evidence points to the roles that humans play in altering Earth systems. The Earth and its atmosphere receive heat energy from the sun; the atmospheric heat budget of the Earth depends on the balance between incoming solar radiation and outgoing radiation from the planet; which has been constant over the last few thousand years. However present evidence seems to suggest that the recent increase in temperature has been brought about by pollution of the atmosphere, in particular the release of huge amounts of carbon dioxide, mostly through Anthropogenic Forcing (human activity) and other various internal and external factors. I...
All four species of sea turtles recorded to nest in Malaysia fall in either the endangered (EN) or critically endangered (CR) categories according to IUCN Red List of Threatened Species (2013). Generally, nesting trends of sea turtles in Malaysia have been decreasing. The nesting trend of green and hawksbill species have not significantly increase but it can say to be stabilized throughout the years. Moreover, olive ridleys and leatherback species are listed critical...
Climate change. The beginning of our worlds extinction. Started by none other than us as human beings. We have started the destruction of Kiribati and other small islands that are vulnerable to rising tides and we as developing and developed countries need to realize the reality of the situation. We need to take action against the force of nature that we have altered.
The political issue at stake in this article is Canada’s politicians and their contributions on climate change. People all over Canada protested at the campaign events of the major political party leaders, asking them what they plan to do to change Canada’s climate change impacts. These protests have affected Thomas Mulcair and Justin Trudeau as “both have committed to include climate change impacts in the reviews of tar sands pipelines, and have clarified that their process overhauls could send the Energy East and Kinder Morgan pipelines back to square one of the review process.” The NDP and Liberal parties have also said that they will focus more on climate, though they didn’t explain how in detail. However, the protesters demand much more from all the politicians
