It not only affects animals and plants but also the human population, which is indeed scary (Markham). Rising sea levels and higher temperature, dangerous rainstorms and droughts are going up commonly. When the temperature increases, the ice will melt at the North Pole. This result leads to the effect that sea levels
The greenhouse effect is not just beneficial, it is imperative to all life that it warms the earth enough to prevent a global ice age. Unfortunately, humans, just like Lennie, are taking it too far by causing the opposite effect. Humans essentially are over-warming the earth with rising emissions and the use of crude sources of energy. As a result, the ice caps would melt. If the ice caps were to melt, the sea level would rise exponentially, which would affect modern coastal cities and arctic wildlife.
Glacial global temperature changes between the ice ages and interglacial periods were due to the concentration of greenhouse gases. Another name given would be called an ice age. The earth also experienced then warmer interglacial periods. When this occurred, flooding happened. Pleistocene creatures had to move to new environments and adapt to their new surroundings or they would go extinct.
The widespread visible melting of glaciers and sea ice and undisputable rise in permafrost temperatures presents additional evidence of strong Arctic warming and causes for alarm. By permafrost melting, exposure of once ice trapped land will continue to rise, resulting in the release of more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and ocean (Greenpeace). This cause and effect will result in more unexpected and erratic increases in the Arctic’s climate continuing to drastically decrease sea ice. Sea ice is a thin, fragile, solid layer of frozen ocean water that forms in the Arctic and are made of fresh water from compacted snow
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.
Global warming creates many problems such as the water rise, due to the melting of ice caused by the planet warming up. From 1990 to 2010, the sea level has rise to 6 cm compared to 1990. Scientists make predictions that the water should have rise between 50cm to 1.5 metres by 2100. "Climate Science Glossary." This would mean that a great amount of land of Earth would be underwater.
Examinations conclude that a great number of ice shelves are due to disintegrate caused by ocean warming alone. Ocean levels continue to increase at an alarming rate. Glacial melting in Antarctica will have a global impact. Therefore, this is a matter that should be handled by everyone globally. Currently, there appears to be clear control over the climate of Antarctica, assisting in determining what path the continent is on and the direct it leans towards.
The issue of global warming is causing the polar ice caps to melt at an accelerated rate with devastating impacts on the environment and mankind. Close your eyes. Imagine strong devastating storms destroying your city. Coastal cities under water. Arctic life disappearing.
One of the biggest cause has been the exhaust gasses. The climate change has some effects on the ocean. One of the most well-known affects would be the melting of ice. Due to the climate change the temperature rises, because of this, masses of glaciers and ice sheets are melting. The melting of the glaciers and the ice sheets brings several affects.
The ice has already been effected by the temperature change that has already happened, like melting different glaciers and ice shelves, that then can change sea levels. If the temperature continues to rise, even just slightly, it will gradually continue to melt some of the ice and change the environment. With the increase of temperature, Antarctica is becoming greener, and there are even parallels seen to what it used to be like in earlier periods, which was warmer, ice free, and greener. Moss growth has continued to increase with the temperature change and will continue to grow as temperatures increase. Many animals in Antarctica are dependent on ice, but as temperatures increase and ice melts, their populations decrease.
Climate change is more serious than we take it. If it continues, everyone will parish. Climate change affects us in many different ways. It causes animal population numbers to decrease, slows down transportation to the north, and causes flooding and the rise of the sea level. Global warming exists, and it is not only affecting the environment.
Global warming has severe impact to the world, it melts the polar ice caps, raises the sea level. “ As global temperature rise by up to 9 degrees fahrenheit, this shelf could conceivably break apart, allowing enormous chunks of ice to flow into the ocean…. These chunks of ice could displace enough water to raise global sea levels by more than fifteen feet”(Bilger 61). Increasing the sea level by fifteen feet would cause the flooding of Boston, submerging Miami, and also Bangladesh will go under water. Melting polar ice caps will cause is the death of wildlife in the Antarctic, polar bears will not be able to survive on ice but instead will drown into ocean.
Anthony Marr a geophysicist also argues that the increase of Latent heat or Enthalpy will affect the hottest and coldest areas in the world. The event he calls “Latent Heat of Fusion” will rise the temperatures in Antarctic, Artic, and Greenland melting glacial ice. As the ice melt the surrounding waters become warmer which may play a big role in the way future climate change unfolds. This is threat to wildlife which depend on the freezing temperature for survival. This may also cause rise in sea levels and shifting of the balance of the earth
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.
The home to mankind and millions other species is facing the biggest threat ever: global warming, which is one of the most concerning issues in today’s world. Before going any further, it is very important to understand what the term actually means. Global warming is defined as “the gradual increase in the average temperature of the Earth 's atmosphere and its oceans” by Wikipedia. It is altering the earth’s climate permanently. Global warming has had drastic effects on the ecosystem and mostly not in a positive way because now it has reached a harmful level.
