The water in the oceans take a huge amount to time to respond to the warm conditions at earth’s surface. This is the reason why the glaciers will continue to melt , and the sea level will continue to rise in the coming centuries at very high rates. But on thing is clear, with every single day that passes, the life of our world is becoming shorter and shorter. The climate change has already done a lot of damage to this planet, and all these devastating effects show us that this matter should not be left unattended anymore, otherwise the day is near is near when this planet will become inhabitable for
It didn't go into force until 2005, and its mission was to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. More recently, in 2009 they had the Copenhagen Summit. Global Warming is an undeniable threat to the human race. It is very dangerous and could possible be the end of the human race. It is critical that we stop it now, for the polar bear population is dramatically decreasing, we have more serious weather conditions, and sea levels will rise enough to put a lot of coastal cities
There is a 0.8 degree Celsius increase in external temperature over the last century, more than one half of it took place in the previous 25 years. This is a very alarming rate for temperature deterioration. Pollution, desertification and burning of fossil fuels are the main causes for Global Warming. Factors responsible for global warming Scientists all around the world are working day and night to figure out the causes and effects of global warming. They are investigating into natural cycles and patterns and trying to figure out its results in measurable terms.
Every year air pollution claims millions of lives, according to a research conducted by WHO (World health organization), air pollution is responsible for over 3.5 million deaths from indoor pollution and 3.3 million by outdoor air pollution, more than AIDS and malaria combined . If air pollution concentration gets higher, it will worsen the greenhouse effect that is caused by when Carbon dioxide created and a barrier that prevents the heat from escaping into space. Air pollution is one of the causes of the global warming that has many hazardous effects, and one of them is climate change. Due to the greenhouse effect, the unusual weather is found all around the world, hurricanes are getting stronger, more flooding and stronger heat and some other places experience less rain. The ice from Greenland, Antarctic, is melting and because of that the global sea level has risen tremendously, is nearly double that of the last century.
Global warming shows increasing trend and is expected to bring about long term changes in weather conditions (FAO, 2008). According to IPCC (2007), the average global surface tem¬perature has warmed up by 0.8°C in the past century and by 0.6°C in the past three decades. Scientific evidence indicates that the concentration of GHGs in the atmosphere has been increasing; and changing the earth’s climate. IPCC (2007) in its fourth assessment report, indicated that the
“According to the Intergovernmental Panel on (IPCC), an increase in global temperature by 1.5 to 2.5 degrees will make 40 to 70 percent species vulnerable to extinction, while a rise of about 3.5.” Next effect is more hurricanes will occur and many people and country affect as well. Hurricane causes damage to public property and government need to spend billions of dollars in damage and people need places to stay and many people may kill. Once a disaster happens many people may die and diseases happen. Diseases are more dangerous because it can spread to other people and they may suffer from it and the disease maybe
Observed Changes in the Climate System Observations of the climate system are showing that warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and since the 1950s, many of the observed changes are unprecedented over decades to millennia. The atmosphere and ocean have warmed, the amounts of snow and ice have diminished, sea level has risen, and the concentrations of greenhouse gases have increased. • Atmosphere: Each of the last three decades has been successively warmer at the Earth’s surface than any preceding decade since 1850. In the Northern Hemisphere, 1983–2012 was likely the warmest 30-year period of the last 1400 years. • Ocean: Ocean warming dominates the increase in energy stored in the climate system, accounting for more than 90% of the energy accumulated between 1971 and 2010.
The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is very likely human-induced and it is proceeding at a uncontrollable rate. It causes Rise in Sea level which Global sea level rise unprecedentedly in the 10 years. The rate currently in this few years, however, is nearly double that of the last century. It leaves low lying countries like the Netherlands, Micronesia and small pacific islands at risk of being completely swallowed by the sea. As of now certain countries are vanishing in a twinkle of an
As this continues we may see 40 percent less rainfall in Sarawak. The Global Warming is already affecting the weather like the floods in Johor and Perlis for example are suppose to take place in 100 years. The global warming creates a big problem for Malaysians and the people around us. http://www.themalaysiantimes.com.my/global-warming-a-warning-to-all/ Global perspective In
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
