Hey guys,I will be looking at the effects of Global Warming...
Global warming is the gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, CFCs, and other pollutants
Effects of global warming
Each year, scientists learn more about the consequences of global warming, and many agree that environmental, economic, and health consequences are likely to occur if current trends continue:
Effects of global warming,Melting glaciers, early snow melt, and continuous droughts will result to more dramatic water scarcity and increase the risk of wildfires in the American West.
- Rising of sea levels will result to coastal flooding on the Eastern Seaboard, especially in Florida, and in such areas as the Gulf of Mexico.
- Some places for example in farms will face trouble pests, heat waves, heavy downpours, and increased flooding.
- destruction of habitats such as coral reefs and Alpine meadows might drive many plant and animal species to extinction.
- Some diseases for example asthma may be common because of increased growth of pollen-producing ragweed, increased levels of air pollution,together with the spread of conditions that are favorable to pests.
.Extreme heat waves have caused tens of thousands of many deaths across the world in recent years.The earth’s ocean temperatures are also getting warmer and wwarmer, too—which means that tropical storms can pick up more energy. So global warming could turn, say, a category 3 storm into a more dangerous category 4 storm.Coal-burning power plants are by far the biggest polluters.
