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.
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
Countries that are dependent solely on their agricultural industries for profit and global trade will be disproportionately affected by climate change, primarily its effects on sea levels. According to the American National Aeronautics and Space Administration, rising sea levels are
So what is it? What is the cause? Are there any solutions for this problem? We are going to discuss all about that right now. Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time.
1. INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background of the Study Climate change is a change of climate which attributed directly or indirectly to human activity that alters the composition of the global atmosphere (UNFCC, 2001). Climate change is a phenomenon due to emissions of greenhouse gases from fuel combustion, deforestation, urbanization and industrialization resulting variations climate elements such as solar energy, temperature and precipitation (Upreti, 1999). Temperature rises beyond 2°C due to climate change and variability is likely to result in reduced crop yields in particular in most tropical, sub-tropical, and mid-latitude regions and some ecosystems will be irreversibly damaged or lost. It will contribute to result in much more drought and flooding in low-lying areas with decline in food production, an increase in disease, and the extinction of plants, animals, and entire ecosystems (IPCC, 2007).
Climate change is the most rising issue of the modern world that is threatening our planet from the last few decades. In the simplest definition, the term climate change refers to the rising of the planet’s temperature, particularly an increase in the average atmospheric temperature. It should be noted that in the last few decades, many scientists and ecologists has discovered the Earth temperature is increasing at an alarming rate and has affected the planet in numerous of way. The constant change in the climate due to various causes is threatening the preservation of the Earth and its human life. It should be noted that the climate change is linked with several of the human activities that are further directed towards the global warming.
INTRODUCTION The world’s climate is changing and it will continue to change throughout the 21st century and beyond. Rising temperatures, variable precipitation patterns, rising water levels due to melting icebergs and many other such changes are already affecting many aspects of the human society and the natural world. Climate change is transforming ecosystems at extra ordinary rates and scales. It is a global change process but with diverse regional manifestations. Mankind has abused nature for far too long and would pay a heavy price unless urgent remedial measures are undertaken.
The Earth’s climate is an extensive and complex thing. Science has studied it a great deal, but there is still much that is unknown. One thing that is known however is that humans can directly and indirectly affect the climate. One way they do this is by contributing to climate change. Climate change is very real and will have terrible effects if left unchecked.
An unstable and unsustainable environmental order brought forth by global climate change has become a potentially dangerous issue, for it has a direct bearing on development issues of mankind and poses a host of threats to the very survival of human beings itself. If global warming and consequent climate change is not checked, agriculture and food security is bound to be threatened; water insecurity is eminent as droughts and crisis of ground water is highly predicted; the rise in sea levels owing to increased glacial runoff would lead to the submergence of coastal areas and the salinisation of groundwater supplies; and invariably there would be huge loss of biodiversity with the destruction of the flora and fauna. And in addition to all these, one of the most devastating effects of climate change that is expected to be prominently visible in the long run is its detrimental impact on
Currently Climate Change is one of the most ignored, overlooked and ongoing manmade disaster. Climate change is no longer an issue for the distant future. It is already taking place in South Asian countries particularly the poorest people, are most at the risk. The impact of high temperature, more variable precipitation, more extreme weather events and sea level rise in South Asia will continue to intensify. These changes have major impacts on economic performances on South Asian countries.
