Global Warming: The Negative Effects On The World Of Glaciers
This is having drastic effects. The era we are in now is one of the first experiences the Earth is having with human activity affecting its natural processes. Majority of what is occurring is not natural and can have major potential drawbacks.
We have stated that global warming has the potential to delay the next Ice Age however, there is also the possibility of the early onset of the next Ice Age. in the article “crippled Atlantic currents triggered ice age climate change” it is discussed how in the last glacial period the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation had begun to slow down right before periods of sudden climate change (Hand, 2016). As well today there is evidence of the AMOC currently “known to be in decline”. (Hand, 2016)
This delay or early onset of the next ice age is human made, with this in mind we need to take action before it is too late to reverse the impacts we are inflicting upon the Earth. As well, whichever study or scientist is right it is hard to determine however it is clear that global climate change is a real problem in regards to the fate of generations of the world. We may not be able to see future impacts of global warming as we speak but, we do know the implications that will result from its
