The ice has already been effected by the temperature change that has already happened, like melting different glaciers and ice shelves, that then can change sea levels. If the temperature continues to rise, even just slightly, it will gradually continue to melt some of the ice and change the environment. With the increase of temperature, Antarctica is becoming greener, and there are even parallels seen to what it used to be like in earlier periods, which was warmer, ice free, and greener. Moss growth has continued to increase with the temperature change and will continue to grow as temperatures increase. Many animals in Antarctica are dependent on ice, but as temperatures increase and ice melts, their populations decrease.
Let’s move to the summary that I mention the three effects before. The global warming can affect a lot to the earth that the polar ice caps is melting so that it will increasing the sea level and it going to flood in the cities in the pacific. The global warming are the cause of heatwave droughts so that it will rising the temperature and it will make the climate change. The last one is the global warming will change the ecosystem. Overall of this assignment, I have understood that our earth is "sick".
Therefore, when the sun radiates heat towards the Earth’s surface, a fraction of that heat gets trapped in the Earth’s atmosphere acting as a blanket over the Earth. Because of this, the oceans absorb 93% of the additional heat created by global warming, this then leads to the expansion of the ocean, therefore causing sea levels rise. In view of this, the earth will only deteriorate with time, the heat in the oceans causing sea level rise will cause homeowners, families, even the wild life to relocate further inland before all the islands & cities are flooded, deeming them completely underwater. Information gathered from (https://www.theinertia.com/environment/sea-levels-rising-how-soon-until-were-underwater/) with research from Climate Central I have found out that there has been a projection of a four-foot rise of sea level all over the globe and this is just within the next two or three centuries. Along with a total of a 10 foot rise at the end.
According to Nasa, Sea levels continue to rise after 2100 because the oceans take a very long time to respond to warmer conditions at the Earth’s surface. Ocean waters will, therefore, continue to warm and sea level will continue to rise for many centuries at rates equal to or higher than those of the current century. (Source 6). Meaning that after 2100 climate change can have a huge effect on the new
The consequences Global warming has led to that the sea level rise is accelerating, the number of large wildfires is growing, dangerous heat waves are becoming more common, extreme storm events are increasing in many areas and more severe droughts are occurring in others. It also causes many seasonal changes like longer winters and shorter summers. Animals and plants The increase in greenhouse gases is changing the climate faster than some living things may be able to adapt. Many species of animals and plants have already disappeared because of climate change. Global warming is causing a shift in the timing of natural events in the lives of animals.
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).
There can also be affects on the types of storms that can occur if global warming continues. Scientists say that category three storms can turn into a more dangerous category fours. Farms and cities will face new pests, heatwaves, heavy downpours, and increased flooding. There can also be many causes in disruption of habitats and this can lead to many animal species to extinction. Global warming is a rise in the surface temperature of the earth.
Scientists also predicted that the average temperature could increase between 1.4 to 5.8°C by the year 2100. Greenhouse gases can cause global warming. Based on Collins Dictionary, The greenhouse effect is the problem caused by increased quantities of gases such as carbon dioxide in the air. These gases trap the heat from the sun, and cause a gradual rise in the temperature of the Earth's atmosphere. Gases such as carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, halocarbons and so on, built up in the atmosphere due to increased use of energy and the expansion of global economy in the 20th century.
As the climate warms up, the extreme weather types will be more frequent and they’ll become more severe. The greenhouse-effect causes the temperature to go higher, that will have an impact on the different types of weather. Heat weaves will be longer, and much hotter. The land ice and ice caps shall melt, and the sea level will rise. Heavy rains and hail will be more frequent.
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,
