The Causes And Effects Of Climate Change

1268 Words6 Pages
Climate Change is generally defined as a change in global or regional climate patterns, in particular, a change apparent from the mid to late 20th century onwards and attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels. It has been lately causing several problems to our Earth. Starting from harming the nature with its plants, animals and atmosphere; ending up in harming us as humans in our health and our dependency on nature. Almost all of the studies repeat every single information. However, they leave behind the most momentous question unanswered. Eventually, this resulted in a rumor that has been spread widely among the human population and resulting in many people getting bewildered…show more content…
NASA have announced that our Earth’s average temperature has increased by 1-degree Fahrenheit (Vladis). This change in the average temperature of Earth may sound like a small amount. But it is an unusual event in our Earth’s recent history. The temperature in the ice ages was just 4 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit less than our Earth’s average temperature. So a 1 degree change is not small. However, small changes in temperature may lead to enormous environmental changes. Such as ice melt, which is a significant effect of climate change. Since 1970, permafrost has grown warmer and the area of snow cover in the United States has steadily decreased. Glacier recession is another effect, it is still underway and many glaciers have had already disappeared. According to the U.S Geological Survey, only 25 glaciers are still available from a total of 150 glaciers in Montana's Glacier National Park. The depletion in Arctic sea ice is one of the most sizeable effects if climate change (NRMSC). In 2012, scientists observed the smallest amount of Arctic ice cover ever recorded. Scientists referred that most of the analyses demonstrate that, within the matter of some years, the Arctic Sea will be completely…show more content…
Recent researches have shown that climate change is a hoax and they are supporting their study with the inaccurate prediction of scientists. They state that scientists predicted that sea levels will rise up 3 feet more, but it had risen 1 feet only. However, scientists cannot announce the accurate increase because they are just predicting according to several observations. For example, if the forecast stated that there will be a hailstorm, is that a 100% correct prediction and does that mean that it will surely happen? Moreover, 1 feet in the rise of sea levels is not a low increase nor a natural event. In a matter of a few years, a consecutive increase in sea levels will cause the sinking of the islands and
