Climate Change is a nomenclature for all that is affiliated to the climate and more, weirdly enough... our existence. You 'd thought climate and existence shouldn 't be marinated together in such a kung ho disorientation, I say this in the knowledge that the homo-sapien has survived for 5 million years in which time seismic Climate Change (s) have taken place. The Industrial Age wasn 't the reason and it 'll surprise Warmists that nature 's ecologist data is in sync with weather patterns of today. Nature doesn 't spring up differing climate patterns at a whim, so why call it 'Change? ' Politicians should be at the COP21/CMP11 but Oceanologists; purely to discuss with clarity the next stage. I 'm more concerned with political whims than I am
Here in southeast Florida we are one of the most vulnerable sea level rise places on earth. Citizens of these cities have begun to notice the changes of the sea level during a small period of time. Each time, it is more common to see in no rain days flooding, streets of water coming out under the earth, and it is not fresh water. It is salty water proceeding from the ocean. According to the World Resources Institute, (Forbes 3) by the end of this century, the sea level could increase up to 4 feet; at this point, more than 80 percent of south beach would be flooded.
Climate change is more serious than we take it. If it continues, everyone will parish. Climate change affects us in many different ways. It causes animal population numbers to decrease, slows down transportation to the north, and causes flooding and the rise of the sea level. Global warming exists, and it is not only affecting the environment.
The Great Barrier Reef is actually the largest living thing on Earth. In fact, it can even be seen from space. The only problem with reefs is that they can only survive under a certain temperature range. If the temperature is too low or too high for the reefs, this causes the algae, which gives the coral their beautiful and bright colors, to leave the coral, and therefore causing the coral to become bleached (National Ocean Service). This is exactly what has happened this year. Data has recently been released that El Niño has caused complete bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef (The New York Times). Let that sink in, the World’s largest living thing, that has been around for about 500,000 years, is dying this year. People need to realize that
Also, hurricanes cause storm surges which flood areas close to the shore. Interestingly, the NOAA also monitors the national water level. This is of great value, because it may be foreseen that society needs to reduce emissions in order to prevent rising sea levels. Consequently, if nations continue to produce high emissions areas below sea level will flood in a short matter of time. Specifically, Florida is already experiencing such consequences and seaclimate.org, a website that focuses on oceanic temperature and conditions, states that by the year "2050 South Florida will flood in areas reaching more than 4 feet above high tide"(seaclimate.org). Unfortunately, "more than half the population of more than 100 Florida towns and cities lives on land below that 4-foot line", thus there will be lost homes and entire cities might flood as well. In fact, areas in other states, such as Newport Beach, CA, will experience a rise in sea level and loose areas in the
Glaciers have an impact on the rise in sea level the glaciers melt and causes about .03 inch rise in the sea level per year this is equivalent to 571 trillion pounds of water! Glaciers are responsible for ⅔ of the sea level rising in almost a decade. If it continues it can and will lead to loss in homes, land, and beaches. And the rise if sea level is not just the glaciers, it’s also the ice sheets of Greenland and the ice sheets of Antarctica. If all the world 's glaciers would melt the sea would rise 24 inches, scientist speculate that Greenland’s and Antarctica 's ice sheets melt it has potential to raise sea level a little under 220 feet (66 meters.) Scientist aren 't sure because the warmer the water the more space it takes up, so
Climate change is happening at a really fast pace. One of the affected areas is the Arctic and the Arctic life. Climate change is the change in weather patterns over a long period of time caused by global warming. Global warming is a gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth 's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide and other pollutants. Ever since the industrial revolution, the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has increased drastically. The large amount of carbon dioxide was produced by human activities such as burning gases, woods, and burning coal. Clearing forests also releases large amounts of carbon dioxide. Worldwide deforestation means that we don’t
One of the greatest issues that we face towards the environment has been an increasingly difficult problem over the last few years. Earths climate is changing at rapid paces and solutions are needed as quickly as possible to replenish natural ecosystems and cultures that depend on the environment. Climate change not only affects the animals in our ecosystem, but us humans as well. With the human population increasing every year, climate change is only getting worse. Many argue that the effects of climate change towards the environment are due to other extraneous factors, however, I myself am a strong believer that the problems such as rising sea levels, warmer temperatures and natural disasters are all due to both natural causes and human activity. In this essay, I will discuss the different effects that climate change has on us and on the environment, evidently showing that climate change is one of the greatest epidemics of mankind.
Global climate change constitutes arguably the single most important threat to mankind. From the onset of the industrial revolution, greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), including carbon dioxide (CO2) have increasingly built up in the atmosphere, causing the climate to warm up slowly but steadily (IPCC, 2014). NASA predicts that 2016 will mark the hottest year on record. The effects of global warming are ubiquitous: Greenland’s glacier and the Arctic ice cap are melting, ocean levels are rising, occurrences of extreme weather are increasing, including hurricanes and areas of either intense drought or flooding. Collectively, these changes and their direct consequences are an imminent danger and they directly affect other urgent issues humanity is
Nowadays, climate change is the biggest concern for the world issue that each country need to find the solution and take action to address that issue. Because climate change causes health problems, so health care is also a big problem, big concern for everyone as well.
Many people do not know the difference between weather and climate. Weather is not climate. Weather is the daily prediction of the temperature, humidity, and precipitation chances. Weather can change daily. It can be hot one day, and cold the next. Climate is the weather over a longer period of time. Climate is what the weather is like over a longer period of time. Climate can change, but it is very rare when it happens. The climate can be hot, cold, wet, or dry. Climate is usually over a bigger area of land.
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.
Climate change has within the past twenty years come to be extremely important to the world we live in. It has been observed that not only have temperatures been changing, but different locations throughout the world are experiencing weather patterns that were otherwise abnormal for these locations. In California, although wildfires had always been an issue, this problem has grown much more serious than in previous decades as there has been more extensive droughts. This is not the only example, in many places such as the arctic polar ice caps are melting and in island regions such as Guam, the ocean is becoming more acidic, destroying the coral reefs and sea life. Although there have always been minor changes in climate over time, the extensiveness
This paper seeks to research the study of climate change and its effects on biodiversity. This will be done by first understanding what climate change is and what the different effects are. Once this is understood, it will be easier to apply this knowledge to the study of biodiversity and how species are affected. Real life examples of different species that are affected will be mentioned and explained.
