The weather and climate is also affected because higher temperatures will most likely produce weather phenomenons such as a heat wave (Coon 1). Animal habitats are also being affected because global climate change will either destroy their shelter or will displace the terrains they are living on.

More information on global climate change and self awareness should be displayed to the world in order to gather support from individuals for a strong cause against global climate change. The Kyoto Protocol was and genius proposal due to the fact that it took concerned global warming nations around the world and established an ideal commitment to regulate or even stop the production of greenhouse gases in the world’s atmosphere.
By that time, the Great lakes were becoming damaged; smog was chocking cities; and the growing worry about nuclear energy, were all factors contributing to a widespread concern about the environmental issues developing in our world (Smallman and brown). The Amazon Rain Forest is tens of millions of years old and home to a vast number of species. Making it one of the most powerful symbols of the environmental movement. I say that mainly because it presents the issue of deforestation and species loss. When serious changes occur in the forest, it has been linked to planetary climate change.
Agriculture will be greatly affected as well. If temperatures keep rising, farmers will have to go through more extreme droughts. Global warming is caused by the emission of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and has many adverse effects on the environment, our societies, and our economies. Another cost of fossil fuels is air pollution.
Global Warming Global Warming is a rising threat to the state of the world, causing serious rising in sea levels, rapid melting in the Arctic, and elevated living costs, and must be ended, or at least drastically slowed, in order to create/maintain a healthy, inhabitable planet. As Africa News Service stated “The dangers of a warming Earth are immediate and very human... it’s not just about melting ice, threatened animals and plants. It’s about the human problems of hunger, disease, drought, flooding, refugees and war, becoming worse...” African News Service, “The Reality of Climate Change,” Associated Press, 27 Mar. 2014. One of the most evident and widely publicised consequences of global warming is the rapid melting of both the Western and Northern Antarctic ice masses.
Climate has never been stable here on Earth. Climate is an important environmental influence on ecosystems. Climate changes the impacts of climate change, and affects ecosystems in a variety of ways. For instance, warming could force species to migrate to higher latitudes or higher elevations where temperatures are more conducive to their survival.

It takes years to regrowth the lost vegetation. To sum up, it is obvious that climate shift is actually happened. Human is considered to be the primary cause of the problem. Activities like burning fossil fuel and deforestation are upsetting the climate by interrupt the natural greenhouse gases balance.
Some notable species that are affected by global climate change are butterflies, corals, and plants which can lead to extinction (Kerr 2007: 188). Corals are affected by global climate change dramatically because they are higher sensitive to changing in temperature (Pandolfi, Connoly, Marshall, and Cohen 2011: 418). Rapid changing in temperature and concentration of CO2 in water will disrupt their lifestyle and prevent them adapting (Pandolfi, Connoly, Marshall, and Cohen 2011: 419). This will cause the coral reefs to start dying and even lead to extinction of global climate change is slow down (Pandolfi, Connoly, Marshall, and Cohen 2011:
It is also caused by accumulation of greenhouse effects (Arrhenius, 1896). Should we as humans let this problem worsen? Climate change will affect everything including humans, flora and fauna, and the environment. One of the effects of climate change is how it will affect the people. Climate change will have a huge impact on the people’s health.

Furthermore, the emission of greenhouse gases causes holes in the ozone layer, which can cause diseases especially skin problems in humans. It is our responsibility to save this planet from being destroyed, and we can fight global warming by planting more trees to reduce the amount of existing carbon dioxide in the air.

Most people thought that global warming would only affect certain species and only parts of the world but nature has been cooperating with our theories of the effects on global warming and climate changes, unfortunately. There are many causes of global warming as in deforestation, most of the warming comes from the combustion of fossil fuels in vehicles, factories and electricity production. The effects are threatening to our lives, the environment, the wildlife is at risk, etc. According to the article: Deforestation: Facts, Causes & Effects “Healthy forests help absorb greenhouse gasses and carbon emissions that are caused by human civilization and contribute to global climate change.
