Climate Change’s Effects on the Future A majority of scientists agree that global warming, or climate change, will have both short and long term dangerous impacts on the natural environment, humans and many other species on Earth. Though global warming is a phenomenon that does occur naturally over time, in the past century the world’s climate has dramatically changed as a result of the increased amount of greenhouse gases emitted through human activity. Because this excess of carbon and other gases that humans have produced compounds within the atmosphere over time, scientists project that its negative effects will be long-lasting and far-reaching. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicts that over the next century, temperatures will rise somewhere between 2.5 and 10 degrees Fahrenheit, potentially causing huge changes in weather patterns, the eventual destruction of ecosystems, and the rapid rising of sea levels, each event containing its own serious repercussions. 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.
Global climate change poses a serious challenge for all of humanity; our commitment to implement policies will reduce the environmental impacts associated with change in climate over the long term. Although there are difficulties in discovering all the economic and environmental impacts climate change pose, we still must allocate resources to fund scientific research and related projects, establish global initiatives, and monitor changes in weather patterns as a result of such programs, society will minimize the effects of climate change on the planet. There is a global argument that climate change is not real, that is why this paper tells a lot about scientific discoveries and evidence that climate change is a fact and it is currently taking
2. Some parts of the world will be better to live in In theory some parts of the world might benefit, from a human point of view, due to global warming. However, at current rates of warming, local ecosystems will collapse and any objective measure of global benefits versus suffering would show much more suffering than benefits gained. Climate change is natural, therefore we should do nothing Climate change is natural and natural climate change is occurring constantly. However, natural climate change has been overtaken by human induced climate change which is causing the majority of climate change we are seeing today.
Climate change is always a controversial topic and some scholars discuss this topic since always. What is the climate change? It means a change of climate may attribute to the human activities or natural factors and it will cause some extreme weather events. In this century, with those human or natural factors, abnormal weather always appears and its impacts are threatening our life. However, most people are not aware of this problem, some potential impacts of climate change, how to affect our life and environment are explained below.
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. Other factors that make threaten species are that som... ... middle of paper ... ...s to get their point across towards global climate change. 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.
Most scientists studying climate change believe that humans are to blame for climate change and the extreme weather condition that is happening all across the globe today. These scientist have presented vital scientific evidence that shows that the earth 's climate is warming at an alarming rate. While natural variables continues to play a key role in extreme weather, climate change has shifted the odds and change the natural limits, making heat waves more frequent and more intense today. The earth is warming up faster than we can imagine. On the other hand, others, politician leaders claim that global warming and climate change are natural occurring phenomena that have been occurring throughout Earth 's history.
The causes and effects of Global Warming The Earth has experienced considerable climate change for the last several centuries. There have been many explanations toward the main causes of the increased warming of the planet, but according to IPCC climate report: human impact is unequivocal. The recent weather events that Canada has experienced in Toronto and Calgary have proven Canada is at great risk from the climate change. A UN panel said it was more certain than ever that humans were the cause of global warming and they also predicted temperatures could rise from 0.3 to 4.8 degrees Celsius in this century. According to the IPCC report it is certain that pollution from burning fossil fuels is changing earth’s climate.
Currently, I find climate change, renewable energy, and pollution to be the most vital challenges to solve through global communication and awareness. Climate change is a serious problem and the effects can clearly be seen through new and extreme weather. I think that many people have under estimated climate change, because they automatically associate it with global warming and do not believe that it is real. However, it is a huge and growing concern. Climate change is an accepted scientific consensus proven by a large amount of data.

To put things on a conclusive note, global warming already disrupts millions of lives daily in the forms of destructive weather patterns and loss of habitat (Houghton, 2007). What is already happening is only the tip of the melting iceberg, for it is our children and grandchildren who may suffer most from the effects of climate change. The effects of climate change are likely to be severe and irreparable.
The causes of climate change are also known to them that though it is not only the human action playing role but it is the main cause of climate change. The effects of climate change does include harm and loss of environment and organisms but it also has impact on the human health. Semenza (2014) displays an assessment report which states that throughout the 21st century, the rapidly occurring climate change will lead to increase in number of humans with ill health in many regions mainly in those of developing countries where citizens face low income. Semenza (2014) also mentions how there are physiological limits to intense heat exposure and the global climate change will turn some parts of the world which are currently highly populated into uninhabitable even if the global temperature rises by 7 degrees Celsius. Johnson (2014) states how El-Niño-related hydroclimate variability will lead to being intensified under global warming mainly in areas as southern Asia which are already stressed by different droughts, floods, and crop yields.
