The global climate change and its consequences are leaving a bad impact on the countries to face poverty and hotter temperatures. Climate change impacts include temperature rise, greenhouse and carbon dioxide gas emissions, erratic rainfall, salinity intrusion, the rise of floods, cyclones, storm surges and draught, ice sheets melting which will seriously affect the agriculture, and the world. Researchers agree that climate change is a fact.Temperatures have been increasing
Climate change is defined as the rise in average surface temperatures on Earth. These rising temperatures are the drive of many natural disasters; including hurricanes. Hurricanes are the most dangerous, deadly, and costly natural disaster in history. Over time, temperatures will keep rising, causing worse storms to occur to try to compensate for the rising temperatures, making hurricanes even more violent than they already are. Climate change results in incessant hurricanes, which causes detrimental flooding, and is also damaging to the economy in the United States.
Global warming also bring extreme weather events, causes sea level to rise, increases ocean acidification and causes lakes and oceans to warm rapidly than surrounding environment. All of which reasons have the gigantic impact on the environment. INTRODUCTION Global warming is the increasing temperature of the earth’s atmosphere due to the greenhouse effect.
The increase in Earth’s temperature is causing the glaciers to melt and there is an expansion of warmer seawater. Due to the melting of glaciers, the sea level in the 20th century has risen about 16cms higher. Scientists predict that in the 21st century it might rise up to 59cms which might become a threat to marine communities. 2. The warmer temperature of the Earth has caused heavy rain falls in many areas causing floods in parts of the Earth.
The desertification results in unproductive farmland which increases the pressure to produce food even more. Desertification and climate change in drier areas causes severe water shortages and even droughts. Western culture has created an increase in urbanisation, population and industrialisation,
In addition, both urban and rural areas are also contributing to climate change. Because urban areas are becoming most congested with developing industries, increasing pollution, and poor water quality. But another side, the rural areas are observing with deforestation, loss of biodiversity and habitat, crop failure, and desertification which becomes the cause of rising temperature and fast melting of glaciers in the north that lead to the threat
We can see that some of the main cause of this is due to mass input and ocean warming. It is also mainly associated with the ice age. It is clear that the end of the ice age has caused polar caps and ice sheets to melt resulting in the rise of sea level all over the world. We are also aware that due to human influences global warming plays a huge part too. When looking at global sea level rise we are introduced to global records.
Flash floods in the torrents during peak storms in the rainy season cause severe problem of land erosion, which increases the vulnerability of our study area. Climate condition, which is a natural contributor, as well as human intervention, such as quarries, urban agglomeration, and grazing, are also dramatically affecting our region. Actually, scanty precipitation per year coupled with high temperatures increases land degradation and accelerates
Beach erosion has raised as due to natural factors.” “Increase the susceptibility of coastal infrastructure such as the airports and other government establishments. Agriculture changes in temperature and atmospheric carbon dioxide will negatively affect agriculture output. Tourism will be negatively impacted as beaches and other coastal ecosystems sea level rise are affected by climate change. Water resources in Jamaica will be also affected by climate change.” The Bahamas case study “increases in the number and intensity of tropical storms. Changes in preciptation patterns heavy rainfall in the northern Bahamas and drought in the southern parts.
If the sea-level continues rising due to climate change, thousands of cities will be at risk for flooding and hurricanes. There has also been an increase in heat waves and wildfires. Heat waves are becoming increasingly more dangerous and “can lead to heat exhaustion, heat stroke, and aggravated existing medical conditions” (ucs). Climate change has the potential to ruin our planet, and deforestation is putting us one step closer to that harsh reality. Some would argue that our current rate of deforestation is acceptable due to the fact that many companies follow the 2:1 rule.
