Stemming from the belief that climate change only truly changes a landscape, such as Alaskan’s landscape, this concept of what climate change means to us and animal habits, has changed over the years with climate change playing a bigger role in all parts of an area or landscape. Climate change contains the power to impact these animal habits in that the climate that Alaska is given provides much-needed nutrients, water, and temperatures in the forests, mountains, meadows, rivers, and streams. These, in turn, produce from these climatic sources, plants, and animals that are then used to sustain other parts of wildlife that depend greatly on those other sources. Bears plays upon this concept, through not only showing some of the living and eating habits of the Alaskan Brown Bear but by describing how much the bears found in the film depend upon the salmon that swims in the rivers during the summer months. In this scenario, the bears, and other wildlife heavily rely on the salmon groups as a source of food during the summer months.
The reason is that when it comes to the effects of glaciers melting, both human and animals have to face with the Beside, all of these effects cause the mass migration to both human and animals. Worse than that, it leads to higher extinction rate of
The thing that makes ice so slippery is when it freezes with all the pressure it compacts it very tightly and causes there to be no air so it is just a solid, smooth, slippery piece of glass basically. Ice sickles can also be very deadly, falling sickles kill over 1000 people in the world every year. Ice sickles form when snow or ice melts on something that is above freezing and runs down to the cooler air and it start to refreeze onto its self. A half pound ice sickle can reach up to 80 to 90 mph before hitting you in the head it would only have to fall around 30 feet to reach this speed. When ice is traveling this fast it would hit you with about 1000 pounds of force.
Known as “deceptive killers”, winter storms wreak havoc on areas across the country every year. Winter weather brings about freezing temperatures, high winds, heavy snow, and even flooding in certain cases. These hazardous conditions pose a serious threat to millions of Americans. Annually, dozens of Americans perish from cold exposure during winter months in addition to countless injuries and fatalities resulting from traffic accidents, carbon monoxide poisoning, and fires. Winter storms also place a significant strain on utilities and vital community services.
The temperature must reach −1.8 °C (28.8 °F) before freezing occurs. Ice covers most of the Arctic Ocean. It covers almost the whole ocean in late winter and the majority of the ocean in late summer. Much of the Arctic ice pack is covered in snow for about 10 months of the year. The maximum snow cover is in March or April — about 20 to 50 cm (7.9 to 19.7 in).
This fluctuation in temperatures has caused surface temperatures to rise, ice sheets to shrink, ocean levels to rise, and ocean acidification. In the past few years, there have been more extreme record events than seen before, such as larger and more powerful storms, longer and hotter droughts, et cetera (Climate Change). Everything in our world is so finely tuned that just a few degrees means the difference between 30,000 feet of ice, and extreme droughts and heat waves (The
Actually, as many country in the world, Canada faces many difficult situations. Its current problems may result in great challenges in the future. Management of cultural diversity needs of the minority French–speaking communities, sustainable use of natural resources and safe environment programs, Aboriginal rights are the most important today’s issues. Canada has been accepting people from all over the world for many years. This country has created a society of mixed languages, cultures and religions.
The Captain said “The big icebergs that drift into warmer water melt much more rapidly under water than on the surface, and sometimes a sharp, low reef extending two or three hundred feet beneath the sea is formed. If a vessel should run on one of these reefs half her bottom might be torn away.” The number of compartments that were allowed to be flooded without running the risk of sinking was four, and when hit six compartments ended up being filled with the icy waters, so the ship was doomed to sink. Being four hundred miles from land, the passengers began a frantic search for help and hope, only coming to find a limited amount of life boats and icy waters climbing the once magnificent vessel. The third class citizens were left on their own once the boat broke, due to their
The increasing in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events could increase the risk of dangerous floods, stronger earthquakes, typhoons and other direct threats to people and property as well as the concentrations of unhealthy air and water pollutants. Climate change has caused global warming and rising sea levels, which could lead to the destruction of the Earth 's civilization, affect directly our food supplies, water resources, human health as well
