The heat from global warming will also cause pests to multiply fast which will also lead to less crops. Global warming will also make water difficult to give to livestock which will cause dehydration and mass death in livestock population. There will also be an Increase of water temperature harming fisheries and wild seafood population. These impacts can threaten human health through malnutrition, food poisoning, and diseases. There is concern that climate change will have very negative affect on human life and the environment.
The effects of climate change are likely to be severe and irreparable. If we do not reduce the rate of climate change, hundreds of millions of people may be exposed to famine, water shortages, extreme weather conditions and a 20-30% loss of animal and plant species. While humankind has the ability to destroy the planet, we can also help to protect and sustain it.
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. Some of the most dangerous consequences and effects of climate change are listed here. 1) Higher Temperature During the 20th century both air and sea temperature has increased and causing several problems.
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.
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.
Climate change refers to a change in global or regional climate patterns. Scientists agree that climate change is already beginning to transform life on Earth. The recent rise in global temperatures has brought changes in the weather and the climate. Many places globally have seen changes in rainfall and weather patterns. 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.
Carbon dioxide, water vapor, methane and nitrous oxide are the most common greenhouse gasses. Greenhouse gases cause the radiant heat of the sun to be trapped in the Earths lower atmosphere which causes global warming. If there weren’t any greenhouse gasses, the earth would be really cold due to very little sun rays being absorbed on the earth. Global warming can and will lead to several problems that affect the environment in which we humans live in. These problems can lead to warmer temperatures all around the world, it can endanger animals and the wildlife, and it can lead to widespread flooding from the glaciers melting.
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:
With the changes coming from global warming and increased greenhouse gasses, there will be many impacts to Texas over the coming decades. One of these impacts is the effect on our water resources. Texas’ main source of fresh water is precipitation, coming almost completely from rainfall. With temperatures rising and with an expectation that precipitation levels will most likely drop in coming years, this combination will put great stress on our water reservoirs. If we continue our current usage rates of water and if recent climate changes continue to persist then we will see a huge decrease in our water reservoirs.
Many species that live in fresh water have already relocated to areas where they can survive. These is because carbon dioxide acidify ocean waters hence making these species to change their location to areas that will support their existence. These hot weather will heat up ocean waters and affect growth of coral reefs since the algae that give them their color properties get stressed and leave the corals causing starvation. Animals in arctic regions need ice to survive and with high temperatures, these ice will melt making the creatures to move to other regions or
