My opinion on it is that it is clearly real and we need to do something to stop it. If we do not stop all of the pollution in this world, it can affect everyone 's way of living in the future. Global warming can cause many changes in our environment. Polar ice caps can start to melt which can cause rising sea levels and can easily lead to coastal flooding on the eastern seaboard. There can also be affects on the types of storms that can occur if global warming continues.
She was visiting this region to observe global warming and the effects it was having on the immediate environment. The effects of climate change are being felt in every corner of the globe, especially in the Arctic. Currently, because of climate change, the permafrost is melting, glaciers disappearing and sea ice receding. Attwood even talks about the disappearance of the permafrost, “The northern permafrost melted and the vast tundra bubbled with methane.” This comparison to our world can not be ignored, the rapid disappearance or geographical change of this region is alarming, hence why attwood has used it to portray a dystopian style world. A combination of climate change, pollution and search for natural resources is threatening the fragile species and ecosystems within the Arctic region.
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.
Many have tried to come up with solutions to fix this controversial issue but climate change is still a major issue and affecting millions of lives. To stop this drastic effect we have on the world we must get together with other countries to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, drive more
The environmental impact of a hydrogen powered economy The Production of hydrogen, how is it actually made?........ There are a number of ways that are used to generate hydrogen production, currently the main method is steam reforming from hydrocarbons such as natural gas. However is Hydrogen fuel efficient enough to replace fossil fuels in the future? Since the introduction of Hydrogen fuel to the world, scientists have been trying to improve this concept in many ways. A lot of support has been given to the use of hydrogen fuel as a replacement for fossil fuels as the use of hydrogen fuel is environmentally friendly.
However, the animals to be discussed may not be truly adaptable to the changes in their climate, creating unendurable living conditions. Within the Arctic, sea ice supports the entire Arctic wildlife ecosystem. A reduction in sea ice is very likely to occur due to the increases in climate and will have devastating consequences for Artic animals such as: polar bears, ice-dependent seals, and some seabirds. The eventual elimination of sea ice may more than likely push some of these aforementioned species toward final extinction. 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.
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.
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).
It occurs due to rise in global warming which occurs due to increase in temperature of atmosphere by burning of fossils fuels and release of harmful gases by industries. Climate change has various harmful effects but not limited to melting of polar ice, changes in seasons, occurrence of new diseases, frequent occurrence of floods and change in overall weather scenario. • Loss of Biodiversity: Human activity is leading to the extinction of species and habitants and loss of bio-diversity. Eco systems, which took millions of years to perfect, are in danger when any species population is decimating. Balance of natural processes like pollution is crucial to the survival population is decimating.
