Most notably, global warming. Global warming is evident in the increasingly warming of the Earth's temperature, triggering El Niño phenomenon, widespread thawing, and abnormal sea level rise. This has unpredictable consequences for human life in every country or territory. The direct cause of such things is the effect greenhouse gases. According to studies, the natural greenhouse effect helps maintain and develop life on Earth.
A significant and presently observable effect of global warming is the substantial and diverse change in weather patterns caused by the jump in temperature worldwide, as well as rising sea levels. The IPCC has forecast increases in both flooding and droughts of varying severity in areas all over the world (Parry & Canziani, 2007). Both of these patterns can be damaging in terms of loss of life, but the latter could be devastating in its limiting effects on Page 1 agriculture production, freshwater availability and energy generation (“Global warming: Vital signs”). Tropical storms are also believed to increase in massive destruction as well as the erosion of coastal areas.

One major reason to account for this shift is the utilization of fossil fuels into the environment. This process creates a multitude of carbon atoms that are released into the atmosphere, which is detrimental to our environment. To be exact, global warming is the process where there is an increase amount of greenhouse gases (such... ... middle of paper ... ...ze the importance of this issue and the urgent need for a resolution to climate change.

Secondly, the polluted air is another concern. With rapid urban growth, greenhouse emissions released into the atmosphere are mostly from the motor vehicles. Smog, heat pollution are not just the phenomena that exist in urban areas. They also affect the rural ecosystem, reducing the agricultural land (Ashmore 2005) and spawning tornadoes. Thirdly, health risks suffer as a result of climate change.
Climate change is affecting agriculture by interfering with the efficiency of crop production. Agriculture is facing droughts, flooding, sea level elevations, natural disasters, and health hazards for employees. All of these exponents lead to crop failure that creates famines and food prices to rise. On the other side, agriculture is also contributing to climate change through their output of greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprints. These are caused by the activities that agriculture engages with such as breeding of livestock, ploughing of fields, deforestation, and the use of pesticides and other agrochemicals.
Global warming has been observed and measured over the course of time, how it affects aspect’s of the earth. Many individuals and species have been affected and threaten by global climate change. Earth’s terrains such as vegetation is drying up, therefore causing droughts in forests, mountains, and landscapes. Humans are hurt as much as the food chain since the first consumers eat plants, and the quaternary consumers eat the consumers ranging from first to third (Coon 1). The weather and climate is also affected because higher temperatures will most likely produce weather phenomenons such as a heat wave (Coon 1).
We may not like it but climate change is one of the most important issues that have effects in many parts in our daily lives. If climate change isn’t slowed down it will have a significant impact on global temperature, sea levels, human diseases, and wildlife. Climate change will have an impact on global temperature. Greenhouse gases, emitted by power plants, automobiles, and fossil fuels, are keeping more heat in the Earth's atmosphere. This heat trapping is causing average temperatures to rise all over the world.
This theory can be explained by both environmental and cultural factors of the Mayan society. As scientists explore global climate change that is happening now more evidence is explored in climatic, historical, hydrologic, tree ring, volcanic, and geologic factors. Lack of food and water could have caused extreme furstation in their society which would causes revolts and leave them vuknerable to forgein invasions. Throughout history droughts have caused seceral powerful civilavations to fall and crumble. Cimate changes are causing droughts around the world and like the drought theory of the Mayan, everything is happening quickly.

The climate affects everyone directly and indirectly either in heath or weather. With the weather increasing and/or decreasing it can cause extreme heat waves or extreme cold weather like the “polar vortex” that happened recently. Also climate changes can involve more brutal floods, droughts, hurricanes and tornadoes. People with asthma, heart problems, the very young and elderly can be impacted with the extreme weather changes.
Global Climate Change and Small Businesses: The modern society is experiencing tremendous challenges with regards to access and availability of energy for sustainable development. This is primarily because of the problem of global warming or climate change, which has devastating effects on individuals, businesses, and the society. Actually, it is expected that global warming or climate change will continue to have significant socio-economic and environmental consequences for several countries across the globe, especially developed countries. These regions are characterized with increased changes in temperature and precipitation patterns that contribute to frequency and intensity of extreme weather events. As global climate change continues to have significant effects on the society, these effects are also felt by small businesses in the renewable energy sector.
