When large storms hit land with these increased sea levels it causes large storm surges that can destroy anything in its paths. If temperatures continue to rise other natural disasters could occur ("Global Warming Will Produce More Katrina-Like Storms"). A warmer wetter atmosphere could spawn more tropical storms and there will be floods in places that do not get much rainfall. Humans could prevent these problems if they were to cut down on the use of fossil fuels and use more renewable energy. Renewable energy consists of wind, solar, and lunar power.
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.
Now another natural cause of global warming is the rising of the seas. The biggest reason for sea level rising is that global warming is causing the air to be warmer and that 's causing glaciers and ice-caps to melt. Sea level rise would affect about 11 out of the 15 biggest cities in the world. The reason this is happening because gases are being released into the atmosphere which is causing the temperatures to rise, which causes the seas to rise. Sea level rising means more money that we have to spend for people living on the coastlines because coastal populations are growing and people are crowding into coastal areas and that area could be underwater in a few years if sea levels keep rising how they have been.
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,
• The landscape of south Florida (Everglades) was shaped by the extreme climate and drastic sea-level change during the Pleistocene Epoch, also known as the Ice Age. Sea levels were as much as 300 feet lower and as much as 100 feet higher than today. Even though glacial ice never stretched down as far as south Florida, the effects of remote glaciation are indisputable. As the giant glaciers in the north progressed and departed, the Florida peninsula emerged and submerged (sea-levels responded by falling and rising). As the Ice Age came to an end, sea-levels rose, FL.
The ways of minimizing the damage done to the cemetery are adapting to the effect by attempting to slowdown the rate at which the seas are rising through living shorelines like geotextile bags and oyster shoreline. The living shorelines are short-term like most mechanisms against sea level rise, but are more eco- friendly then the alternative attempt at defense mechanisms. Examples of defenses against sea level rise are armored shorelines as presented at many St. Augustine sites currently as large amounts of concrete or rocks. The most long-term and effective use of energy is retreating, accepting the unavoidable rise of sea level and actively preserving assets accordingly. Ultimately, global warming and sea level rise are inevitable.
Incredible beaches, marine life, and weather are just a few of the things that make the Florida Keys an amazing place. The Florida Keys are a string of islands located off the tip of Florida, which protrude out into the Gulf of Mexico and into the Atlantic Ocean. The oceanography of the Keys are unique because of several factors, including the geologic history, the tides and waves, and the effects of natural and man made threats to the Keys themselves and the thriving marine life. The map below shows the stretch of islands and the many reefs that are right off the coasts of the islands (Florida Keys Map)
There has been a significant increase in bushfires and droughts, and these have been associated with climate change. Rising sea levels are also very dangerous for Australia. In this report, I will be further mentioning the causes and impacts of climate change, and solutions for climate change. Causes of Climate Change - 573 There are natural, as well as unnatural causes of climate change. Natural climate change can be divided into two sections, long-term and short term.
Many scientists believe that our production of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases is having a heat effect on the atmosphere and this could be dangerous for the environment and human life (Hansen, 2011). This article will examine the causes of global warming, its impacts and the remedies we can do to combat global warming. Many problems could result from global warming. Increase
Thesis: I would like to tell you how important are to stop global warming and what steps should be taken to stop or at least minimize global warming. INTRODUCTION I. Attention-getting device: The sea levels would raise approximately 28feet if all the Ice on Greenland melted but did you know that the maximum point in Florida is 35 feet? Regrettably for most of us, the maximum points in Florida are way far to the north.
B. Thesis: The causes of global warming and climate change are because of increased emissions of greenhouse gases, and the effects of this are rising temperatures and more severe natural disasters. II. Body A. Counter Claim: Most scientist and people believe that humans are the cause of global warming because of the emissions that they put into the air, but there is a small percentage of people who think that global warming is not caused by emissions at all.

According to the NOAA tide data the sea rises Between 0.8 to 3.3 mm Per year with an average rate of 1.8 per year. Greenland and Antarctica together hold enough ice, that if it all melted sea levels would rise more than 80 meters. Rising tide data published by NOAA has suggested that low lying coastal areas will be affected the most by this problem. Places Like the low lying parts of the Netherlands, Brazil, Egypt, America, Japan, India, Indonesia, Vietnam and
They also include the replacement of undersized structures such as bridges. These works are necessary, as the original channels have become undersized as a result of the increase in flood flows caused by development. Flash flood also can be overcome with storage ponds of flood attenuation. Ponds such as disused mining pools can be used for flood storage. The objective is to divert the flood water through such ponds and thus regulate the outflow so that the flood peaks are attenuated.
