Global Warming And Its Effects On Society And Our Planet Today

Good Essays
In order to have a better understanding of Global Warming it is crucial to have a clear perspective of how it is affecting society and our planet today. Rainstorms, droughts, record high temperatures, the significant melting of ice glaciers and lastly the rising of sea levels are just some effects that have become increasingly prevailing in our day to day lives. Heat waves amongst precipitation under global warming are major threats to human and animal health and safety. The ongoing days of drought and precipitation changing patterns can be the origin to a devastating forest fire, later leading to animal death, shortage of food and no ecosystem for many wildlife inhabitants. Moreover, the continuation of warmer atmospheric temperatures, holding …show more content…
What about the shrinking of ice glaciers in the Arctic, is this something we should worry about? Most definitely! Hundreds of arctic natives will be left without a home, villages will be swamped if glacier melting continues; let alone, this can be the end of years and years of hunting as a means for survival. You may ask yourself, but why? Well as the sun emits its energy waves they are directly reflected onto the gleaming ice, which then reflects energy back into the atmosphere and lastly, leading to more melting glaciers. When this happens water and rocks begin to absorb a high substantial amount of energy, causing temperatures to get warmer and warmer, renerating the repetition of thus cycle at a greater speed. As ice glaciers continue to shrink animals such as wales, polar bares, walrus and seals begin to migrate, changing their eating habits and behaviors, leaving natives with little to nothing to hunt for. Not only is this affecting humanity, but wildlife animals as-well, would animals even have a normal ecosystem fifty years from today, but the most critical question is, what are we doing as members of our planet to help this life threatening dilemma? Currently, there is hundreds of campaigns worldwide advocating for solutions to global warming but one of the first …show more content…
You must be asking yourself but what does this even mean? Well to start of this means that we as humans may not treat the global phenomenon of global warming as a serious matter simply because is a difficult subject to grasp and understand not only that but many believe that if it is happening… which it surly is, its because its bond to happen and we as a society van only do so much to stop it; that alone creates a sense of uncertainty and confusion leading many with little to nothing to care for. But, now that we have read some on global warming and have seen factual evidence of what is going around us today, what are some efforts we can do to prevent the further destruction of our planet? We can begin by joining a campaign, although this may not sound like much, but this alone can help generate awareness, the more people that know and take the matter seriously, the more laws and politician advocating for global warming are

    As mentioned in the introduction, natural disasters are becoming more extreme and frequent due to global warming. The oceans are more acidic, more forests are damaged due to drought, acid rain, and forest fires, water formations are drying up, and river banks and seashores are vanishing. 2. It destroys habitats. Because of the environmental changes, species are also losing their homes and source of food.…

    “The glaciers maintain enough liquid to increase the worlds sea levels …” Doyle Rice says. This is enough to overcome some of the and in the poles, and if this does happen it will most likely kill some animals that live in the poles. Polar bears, penguins, ex. The biggest problem is that Even an increase of 2 degrees Celsius could be too much for the glaciers. A slight shift in temperature, bringing averages above melting point, will completely change and decimate the earths buildings, houses, and landmarks.…

    Also, the sea levels will rise due to ice melting and people who live near the shores all across the world will slowing watch the water creeping up the shore. According to Quirin Schiermeier, a writer for Nature, an International weekly journal of science, “Scientists have come up with the firmest evidence so far that global warming will significantly increase the intensity of the most extreme storms worldwide” (Hurricanes are getting fiercer). In other words, global warming is causing the wind directions to shift, resulting in extreme storms. With all these effects, the devastation of global warming seems inevitable. However, there is a solution to slowing down climate change and eventually fixing it.…

    Ashley Colombe ENGWR 300 December 6, 2014 The Theory of Global Warming and Climate Change: What It Is, What It Has Done, and How to Fix It The world is constantly going through changes, from freezing winters to hot summers. In recent years weather conditions, among many other things, have changed. Global warming and climate change is one theory that scientists believe has caused these recent occurrences. They have shown vast effects on the environment and the oceans throughout the United States and the world. Global warming has also afflicted animals and insects that inhabit the areas that are affected.…

    The role of greenhouse gasses is to keep the earth from becoming too cold for life. Greenhouse gases, which keep the earth from being inhabitable, have dangerously increased due to humans causing a global climate change. First of all, for anyone that does not know what climate change is, it is a change in the world’s climate. A lot of people think weather and climate…

    For the future, if ocean and land temperatures increase, it will be hard to be able to survive on Earth. Agriculture mostly depends on carbon dioxide and water supplies, and climate change will most likely cause floods or droughts, which will cause plantations to be a very hard process. During global warming, health will definitely be affecting in a lot of different ways. Sudden, unusual changes to the climate are very dangerous to mankind: “Extreme weather events could ‘play a more significant role than even the warming itself in creating conditions conducive to outbreaks of disease,’ says Dr Paul Epstein” (Agnew), implying that diseases will spread more because of the effect the warming will have on land and the atmosphere. Not only physical health will be effect but also mental health: “Hot weather has been linked to increased aggression, violence and higher rates of suicide - and, some caution, global warming may make matters worse” (Leung), implying that the heat caused by global warming makes people violent, unstable, and brings out the worst in them.…

    the biggest impact of climate change is the melting of glaciers; because of the high temperatures glaciers are melting and raising sea levels. The problem behind this is the lower regain are being submerge in water, pulse the glaciers themselves holds 70% of freshwater and if they melt it mighty mass with how ocean currents operates. (Transition between main points: the raise of temperature has affected many natural wildlife and the...)

    Effects of Global Warming on Arctic Regions According to the reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, we must cut the worldwide use of fossil fuels by at least 90% if mankind is to have any chance of stopping global warming. The gases that are released from fossil fuels get trapped in the Earth’s atmosphere like a heated dome known as the greenhouse effect. The condensed heat melts or dissolves all the glacier and ice in the Arctic regions. The sudden change of climate can have everlasting effects on mankind and the Earth. Global warming must be handled immediately because, if not the rising sea levels, inability of animals to live, and changing weather patterns will have major results on human lives.…

    The whole Arctic biological community is being compelled to move with the evolving atmosphere. Creatures like polar bears, whales and seals are changing movement designs, thusly affecting local individuals who rely on upon them for sustenance" (Scheer and Moss, 2016). In addition, the glaciers are also melting, thus disturbing sea levels across the world. “Sea level is expected to rise some three feet on average around the world in the next century, flooding over 22,000 square miles in the United States alone. This pressing issue threatens island nations especially” (Scheer and Moss,…
