What is Global Warming?
Global warming is an environmental problem that has been affecting the world for decades. Its devastating effects can be seen in various aspects of our lives, from the economy, to human health, and the environment. For the environment, global warming has caused melting glaciers, which leads to rising sea levels and extreme weather conditions.
We already see effects scientists predicted, such as the loss of sea ice, melting glaciers and ice sheets, sea levels rising, and more intense heat waves. Scientists predicted global temperature increases from human-made greenhouse gas that will continue. Severe weather damage will also increase and intensify.
Furthermore, global warming leads to the release of persistent organic pollutants which pose a threat to the environment, animals, plants and human health due to their toxic nature. In addition to environmental impact, global warming also has negative implications for human health.
For example, increased temperatures can lead to heat stress and exhaustion, as well as more frequent and severe weather events like hurricanes. As a result, there is an urgent need for measures to mitigate the effects of global warming.
Ultimately, global warming also affects the economy. Governments and organizations must act cautiously to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through sustainable energy sources, clean transportation methods, and implementing environmentally-friendly policies.
Global climate change is not a future problem, but changes to the Earth’s climate driven by increased human emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases are already having widespread effects on the environment: glaciers and ice sheets are shrinking, river and lake ice is breaking up earlier, plant and animal geographic ranges are shifting, and plant and trees are blooming sooner.
Effects that scientists had long predicted would result from global climate change are now occurring, such as sea ice loss, accelerated sea level rise, and longer, more intense heat waves.
We are losing our animals due to the damage of plastic and the water supply being contaminated.
Hotter temperatures. As greenhouse gas concentrations rise, so does the global surface temperature.
Consequences of Global Warming
A lot of things have been happening to the world lately and we cannot figure out how this is happening. All we can do is try our best to reduce the damages that are caused by our society and reduce gas cars. We are in a climate where they are trying to get rid of gas fueled cars due to pollution in the air.
For this to change, we will have to step up and save our people, animals, our drinking water, and our environment. We’ve already see effects scientists predicted, and scientists predict global temperature increases from human-made greenhouse gases will still continue.
