With continuous Ocean and atmospheric warming, sea levels will continue to rise at a higher rates than currently recorded this year. According to the NOAA tide data the sea rises Between 0.8 to 3.3 mm Per year with an average rate of 1.8 per year. Greenland and Antarctica together hold enough ice, that if it all melted sea levels would rise more than 80 meters. Rising tide data published by NOAA has suggested that low lying coastal areas will be affected the most by this problem. Places Like the low lying parts of the Netherlands, Brazil, Egypt, America, Japan, India, Indonesia, Vietnam and
Within the past year, several violent hurricanes have swept through the United States’ coastlines. Hurricanes are becoming increasingly larger in size and strength over the past one-hundred years. Why is this happening? These monstrous storms occur due to burgeoning amounts of carbon dioxide being trapped in the Earth’s atmosphere; what scientists refer to as climate change. Climate change has caused the Earth’s average temperatures to rise over the past several years.
It's becoming clear that humans have caused most of the past century's warming by releasing heat-trapping gases as we power our modern lives. Called greenhouse gases, their levels are higher now than in the last 650,000 years. We call the result global warming, but it is causing
This people argue that in the last 100 years, carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere have risen from 290 parts per million (ppm) to 369 ppm, with strong evidence pointing to the burning of fossil fuels by humans as a primary cause of these increases (#03). Additionally, they say that in the future the earth’s climate is going to rise hugely over short periods of time, which will cause farming to be harder and consequently daily life and economy will be affected. Therefore, according to them a way to stop climate change, or at least to reduce it, is to stop the burning of fossil fuels. If this
Once the demand for petroleum go down the war for fossil fuels might die out. The problem with that is what batteries in electric cars are made of, lithium. Lithium is not as scarce as petroleum but if all cars need them the supply would go down and some of the only places to extract large amounts of lithium are China and Afghanistan (Braun, World). This leaves electric cars in the same position as fossil fueled cars, where they rely on a non renewable material that is required for them to work, but to get that material there may be war, like there is for petroleum. There is also another problem with lithium, it is hard to dispose of.
Hello, everyone. Today I will talk about the effect of global warming, so the global warming can refers to climate change and its causes is increase the surface temperature. However global warming are cause by nature and human event, so you will see that nowadays the temperature is very high and increasing every year, so it will affect many thing on the earth such as the polar ice caps melting, heatwaves and droughts and changing the ecosystems. So, let’s start to the first one. The first effect is the polar ice caps melting, as the temperature increase, the ice at the North Pole will melt.
As the sea ice melts the sea level increase. Sea level is now rising by 3.1mm per year. At this pace, more than 2.5 m sea level rise by 2040. How does climate change affect Arctic animals? Climate change affects Arctic animals drastically by destroying their living habitat and food sources.
As per the latest study shows the level of unfreeze of glaciers are affected from global warming which has been considered permanent. The shrinking of glaciers is pretending a major trouble of drinking water. The brio standards as a total of unfreezing of glaciers have risen from 0.35 mm to 0.40 mm. scholar have warned in their reports, that many glaciers will occult within a period 15 - 25 years. It will create many problems of drinking water and food grains in most of the North American countries.
LED bulbs save energy and last longer, but has a price too high. Additionally, people in poverty still do actions like burning trash, which emits greenhouse gasses like CO2, making global warming worst where they can instead do the 3Rs (Reuse, reduce and recycle). Actions like which can change the future for the better are sadly not be able to be done by people in the poverty
Climate change is believed to be the biggest issue facing the Earth. It is a long-term change in the Earth’s temperatures and climate (“Climate Change”, Dictionary.com). Our atmosphere is part of the reason why we can live on Earth with reasonable temperatures. Humans have been emitting unnatural greenhouse gases, like coal, oil, and gas. This is changing the natural systems that take place in our atmosphere.
