The earth is heating up 500 billion tons of ice will collapse. Then one and a half feet of sea level will rise and then the water would move 150 feet inland in Florida. If this keeps up the world will slowly but surely heat up. Without humans trying to help the environment the world could flood. Some of the problem is Human responsibility and how it is ruining the earth and how the environment and nature will fall because of Global Warming.
Global warming exists, and it is not only affecting the environment. Many, many animals are going endangered and even extinct because of human caused climate changing. One of those notable examples is the polar bears, which only have a population of 20,000-25,000. The reason polar bears are going extinct is because warmer temperatures in the north is causing the ice caps to melt more, and in the summer, polar bears use the ice caps to travel to get food after hibernating. But if the ice caps melt too much and break away, then polar bears
When the Earth starts to warm many other things do to, the ocean will become more acidic and glaciers might partially melt. If the oceans become acidic, fish and other sea creatures will have an unlivable environment. If glaciers start to melt arctic animals that rely on the ice may start to become extinct. Many animals, whether they live in the ocean or the arctic are affected by climate change. Climate Change affects everybody in the world, even though some choose to ignore it, which is why it would be in humanity’s best interest to come together and find a solution.
Coal is the most abundant fossil fuel. One method of coal mining includes mountain-top removal, where explosives are used to remove mountaintops and extract coal. Mountain-top removal has several environmental impacts including acid drainage and deforestation. In lecture, there was a short video about the damage coal ash has caused to the town, Kingston, Tennessee. This is similar to the story about West Virginia.
Ice cores also have to do with climate change when ice cores fluctuate the temperature rises leaving the mammoths in terrible conditions. So we are always weary if another ice age occurs. I think that another ice age will probably occur in a couple of centuries since the climate seems quite
Climate change was the most plausible cause of the Mammoths extinction, it cause mammoths to move to different environment where they were not adapted. Human Hunting was the second most probable cause of Mammoths extinction, since human killed 1/3 remaining mammoths. Hyper Disease was the last responsible cause of the mammoths extinction, since hyper disease killed remaining Mammoths on
This issue that I have chosen is the impact of global warming on polar bears. A polar bear major/main threat is due to global warming is the loss of sea ice habitant. These polar bears are marine mammals, which mean they spend most of their time in the sea than on land. The polar bears make their living on the arctic ice. Global warming also has an impact on the population of polar bears (population size decreasing), the sea ice platforms are moving farther apart; which is making swimming conditions more dangerous for the polar bears, it is impacting on their hunting opportunities (fewer), and increased scarcity of food.
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.
They are terrible for animals, humans, and the atmosphere alike. The debate on climate change has impacted the environmental activist community heavily. They believe the toxins released into the atmosphere by fossil fuels are warming the earth incrementally, which is consequently melting the polar ice caps. When temperatures rise and ice melts, the oceans’ water levels increase, which is happening more rapidly than ever before (Glick 1). Our planet could potentially flood if this trend does not stop.
Burning of fossil fuels and using gases that get trapped into the atmosphere has had adverse effects on earth and its habitants. Case analysis Global perspectives Causes: Countries like Bangladesh, Sudan and Tuvalu face the most adverse effects of climate change even though they do did not contribute to it like other countries. Countries like China and India where industrialization is high are the ones who contribute to global warming. Both of these countries release millions of tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere but the effects are felt internationally. The rising temperature of earth has caused the polar ice caps to melt which led to many floods in Bangladesh, rise in sea level in Tuvalu and droughts in Sudan IMPACTS BANGLADESH Bangladesh experiences different types of Natural Disasters almost every year because of the Global Warming as well as Climate Change impacts, these are: Floods / Flash Floods (Almost 80% of the total area of the country is prone to
