And the temperature show that it will increase even more. Many disasters will come upon us. But first, the one that have been affect the most by climate change are nature, right now in Antarctica, ice melting cause a major problem. The polar bear, it in danger, and soon it will be extinct, because polar bear cannot swim, and the ice is melting, that mean the polar bear soon will don’t have any place to live, and it harder for them to find prey, and if they extinct, the whole eco system will collapse. Many other animal will die, or their will evolve fast enough to survive, that hurt the nature a lot.
People complain about pollution from factories, cars, global warming, and the melting of polar ice caps, yet many people disregard the dangerous that come with fracking. Fracking is the process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks, and/or boreholes to force open existing fissures and extract oil or gas. Fracking is causing an epidemic economically and environmentally. Fracking is continuously destroying the earth day by day. From the endless fracking today’s economy is depleting.
According too many scientist even a small 1 degree increase of the average temperature leads to negative effects on our planet. As the conditions on the earth get warmer some regions will experience drought, and others heavy precipitation, the ice glaciers will melt creating a rise in oceans, damage the ecosystems, and the increase occurrence for extreme weather. With the
In reality, the polar bears are facing real risk of extinction since the Global Warming has ruined their way of life; for instance, it mismanaged their foraging behavior, creating more difficulty for the bears to capture their preys. Couple with unpleasant climate that they must adapt to live with. Regrettably, their icy home is melting resulted by the climate and there is no sign of this incident being stopped. Although, it can be stopped only if every individuals aware of this unfortunate incident and greatly lessen Greenhouse gases
As a result of human activities, the environment is in many ways, degradation, and global warming will accelerate these degradation. (1) because of the high temperature melting glaciers, water thermal expansion, causing the sea level to rise. Sea level rise will be a serious threat to coastal areas, may inundate low-lying coastal areas, serious impact on human activities. (2) climate change caused by global warming will lead to great changes in water supply in many places, the availability of fresh water will be greatly changed. The temperature increase means down to the water will be evaporated, if there is more rainfall to supplement evaporation, is not What impact.
Polar Bears are a species that is in decline. They are currently listed as a vulnerable species because of the decline of their population. Climate change is a driving causes in the decline of Polar Bears. According to a study published in Ecological Applications, “Polar bears prefer sea ice concentrations exceeding 50% in the shallow, productive waters over the continental shelf” (634). This sea ice is essential to the Polar Bears because it allows them to feed off of their prey.
As polar bear population decline so does the population of seals which is a fatal cycle for polar bears, because without ringed or bearded seals, polar bears cannot survive and will be pushed inland. The fallout from the bears being pushed onto the mainland could be detrimental to the Inuit population that are in coastal regions of the ice caps, as bears have been reported to be increasingly more aggressive with humans, it is only a matter of time before the interactions become fatal. Now, not only do they have to adapt to warmer weather, but they also have to deal with the diminishing of the land that they inhabit. Polar bears run the risk of becoming extinct, because without the large ice surfaces, they will have no place to live. It is largely believed that polar bears have adapted to new conditions once, and would have no problem doing so again, however this is utterly incorrect.
Environmental Justice: Climate Change While there are plenty of pressing issues of the world, one particular issue takes the prize of being the potentially the most damaging and urgent issue that humans have to take on, and that is: climate change. Climate change is a world-wide issue that not only affects every single human’s life, but virtually everything else on the planet if the issue is not resolved. Although global warming currently remains a prominent issue in the world, many organizations such as Greenpeace and the National Resource Defense Council have been taking actions to try to battle the downward spiral of climate change by spreading knowledge about the subject and making efforts in everyday life to make a change. As stated
Hurricanes are the most catastrophic and expensive natural disaster by economic measurement. Because there are larger and more brutal hurricanes occurring due to climate change, the United States and its citizens will spend a fortune to rebuild and repair. In fact, this will increase government spending and debt load, and similarly, people affected by the hurricanes will have to deal with the financial burden of recovering from these epic disasters. Unfortunately, it is the poor and those living in poverty who will need the most help. Many people do not have the resources to flee their homes, “Some people have cars, and money for gas, motels, meals, pet food.
Elizabeth Miller Physical Geology Lab Environmental Issues Paper Global Warming vs Polar Bears Scientifically known as Ursus maritimus, the polar bear is a marine mammal that spends more time at sea than on land. (“Global Warming and Polar Bears”) The bears’ population is between 20,000 and 25,000 worldwide. (“Polar Bears Threatened by Global Warming, Says Bush Administration”) Stocks, or groups of polar bears, are distributed throughout the Arctic. They are known to be long-lived creatures. The ability to replace individuals is very limited and the population growth is extremely slow.
