[2015] Michael T (4th Earth Science 2015): Effect of Global Warming!

Future Effects•Northeast. Heat waves, heavy downpours, and sea level rise will effect Infrastructure, agriculture, fisheries, and ecosystems will be increasingly compromised•NorthWest. Changes in the timing of streamflow reduce water supplies for competing demands. Sea level rise, erosion, inundation, risks to infrastructure, and increasing ocean acidity. Increasing wildfire, insect outbreaks, and tree diseases are causing widespread tree die-off.•Southeast. Sea level rise; widespread and continuing threats to the region’s economy and environment, extreme heat; will affect health, energy, agriculture, and more. Decreased water availability will have economic and environmental impacts. •Midwest. Extreme heat, heavy downpours, air and water quality. Climate change will also exacerbate a range of risks to the Great Lakes.•Southwest. Increased heat, drought, and insect outbreaks, all linked to climate change, have increased wildfires. Lowering water supplies, reduced agricultural yields, health impacts in cities due to heat, and flooding. Also erosion in coastal areas.

Polar Areas•Northwest passage was searched for since 15th century, because of global warming; the passage has opened, enabling trade and especially oil trade, which cause oil spills and more carbon dioxide in the air. •Temperatures rising cause glaciers and frozen fresh water to melt into the sea•The melting sea water causes sea levels to rise, which causes loss in land•Melting permafrost that supports pipe lines and trees that makes up the ground of Antarctica are melting, the dying trees releases more green house gases and the pipelines break and pollute Antarctica, which leads to more melting!

Humans•Extreme Heat Waves will come due to global warming. In 2003, heat waves killed 70,000 people , 15,000 of them from France alone with temperatures of 104 degrees•140 people died in July 2006, some with air conditioning•Rising smog and carbon dioxide and other gases is a big threat to people with breathing problems and these gases can cause dieses•With Global Warming come more natural disasters and dangerous weather events like hurricane Katrina•With rising sea levels flooding happens, destroying homes, contaminating drinking water and even causing water shortages

Wild Life•Rapid rate of change in animals•Animals effects are temperature realted•80% of animals change realted with global waming is migration•It's Affecting animal and plant population•Partial habitat destruction•Could disrupt connectives between species, lead to reformulation of species community•Differential changes•Melting ice water removes hunting grounds for polar bears•Warming water as a result of global warming kill cold water fish•Global warming leads to coral bleaching and that collapses eco systems that sustains life in the reefs

Glaciers are Melting! That Means less sunlight reflection! And that Means more warming! 1/36 of america is covered by black asfault, if it was white, we could increase sunlight reflecting and lower temerature!
