Higher temperatures will affect the growth of plants and Efficiency of the crops and forest in that area. Here is how climate change will effect the U.S. tropical islands. Sea level rise will threaten the amount freshwater, ecosystems, and infrastructure of U.S. tropical islands. Coral reefs, That are already being hurt by pollution, will probably get worse as the ocean gets warmer and absorbs more acid. Here is how climate change will effect the North East.
Prior to the industrial revolution, non-anthropogenic variables were leading roles in climate change but has quickly changed as anthropogenic activities play the leading role in climate change today. Although climate has been changing for decades it has been a recent change in causes that allows climate change to worsen as time goes by. Climate is the average that stands consistent for a long time in an area of precipitation, temperature, atmospheric circulation and atmospheric chemistry. Climate can be affected and changed by man forced and unforced factors. These include volcanic forcing, solar forcing, solar variability and the industrial chemicals.
It is easy to observe that the effect of global climate change on the Earth. For example, the rises of sea levels, glaciers, and polar ice caps are melting; numerous animals are emigrating to find other places to exist; trees are in bloom sooner. Scientists have confirmed that the temperature will keep on rising up for the next decades because of human activities in the industry (Alina). One of the biggest problems facing us now is global warming. It not only affects animals and plants but also the human population, which is indeed scary (Markham).
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
The effects of the climate change are undeniable in the scientific research. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and other meteorological organizations measures the temperature of the earth on the daily basis and has indicated the potential increase. Furthermore, the dramatic decline in ice and glaciers in the North and South Pole verify the rising temperature and its impact on the sea level. It should be noted that from last decade, the sea level has been increased due to melting of the ice that ocean currently pose a threat (Shrestha, Babel, & Pandey,
But do we have any evidence that proves the occurrence of climate change? Throughout the history, the Earth 's climate has changed gradually. The planet 's average surface temperature has risen about 2.0 degrees Fahrenheit (1.1 degrees Celsius) since the late 19th century, a change driven largely by increased carbon dioxide and other
With no greenhouse effect, the average of the global temperature of the Earth would change from 15 to -18 Celsius. In addition, the concentration of the carbon dioxide has increased and that is because of human influences. The releasing of this gas is caused by many activities that humans do, such as burning of fossil fuels and deforestation. As many scientists claim, this phenomenon will lead to enhancing the greenhouse effect and this will lead to making the planet warmer (Masih,
There are three impacts in the Climate change which are the following below: 1. Coastal areas ground loss (67%) 2. Water resources concentration of rainfall in winter water quality degradation Increased need for irrigation 3. Agriculture Increased need for water increased weeds, pests and diseases shift of farmland to North The Impacts of Climate Change: • Forests and biodiversity • Decreased productivity • Increased risk of fire • Migration and extinction of forest key species • Increase of diseases • Extinction of plant and animal species • Increased risk of exotic species
These individual events obviously are not concrete proof, but they contribute to a larger pattern (Nye and Powell 19-33). Generally, Earth’s climate changes slowly at its own pace (Nkemdirim566+). The CO2 levels in the atmosphere have increased dramatically since the industrial age, and that is part of the problem. The rate humans add to the carbon levels is causing the greenhouse effect to get stronger and stronger. The greenhouse effect is closely associated to global warming.
The rapid rise in greenhouse gases is a problem because it is changing the climate faster than some living things may be able to adapt. Also, a new and more unpredictable climate poses unique challenges to all life. Historically, Earth's climate has regularly shifted back and forth between temperatures like those we see today and temperatures cold enough that large sheets of ice covered much of North America and Europe. The difference between average global temperatures today and during those ice ages is only about 5 degrees Celsius (9 degrees Fahrenheit), and these swings happen slowly, over hundreds of thousands of years. Now, with concentrations of greenhouse gases rising, Earth's remaining ice sheets (such as Greenland and Antarctica) are starting to melt too.
