How Climate Change Is Affecting Our Environment

It is worth recalling that the warm period following the last ice age brought the destruction of the great mammals such as mammoths, woolly rhinos and cave bears.

Scientists from the US Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the temperature increase on Earth will cause extinction of nearly 30 percent of our flora and fauna.

This will trigger the migrations of animals.

For example, in the northern hemisphere fox are becoming more common in the Arctic and even many species of songbirds due to changes in the tundra will have to look for other nesting sites.

The increase in temperature with accompanying floods and droughts creates favorable conditions for mosquitoes, ticks, rats and other insects and animals carrying serious diseases.

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that it is possible for outbreak of new serious diseases in different countries in terms of climate – such as West Nile fever in Canada.

With high probability it can be assumed that tropical diseases such as malaria will be transmitted by mosquitoes to countries that have NEVER been exposed to this killer.

Global warming through increased carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere will also certainly increase the Health risk in the number of people suffering from allergies or asthma.

Widespread disregard for global warming is largely due to the so-called skeptics.

Half of poverty as indicated by top scientists suggest that climate change plays a major roll.

Politicians of North Carolina decided contrary to the findings of scientists that the increase in water level is in line with the historical trend and will be in the twenty-first century, 20 cm. Experts however believe that it will exceed 1 m.

However, the undisputed leader a Texas congressman who claims that the biblical flood is an example of climate change, which did not cause excessive emission of greenhouse gases.

The processes of globalization coverage over the remotest areas of the globe, bringing with it big changes for the society and the environment. Improper use of natural resources leads to undesirable effects such as global warming, increased pressure on the environment, imbalance and deepening social inequalities.

Spectacular changes involve, among others, rise of temperature,

melting glaciers, rising sea levels, desertification, soil erosion and disappearance biodiversity.

The devastation of the environment and the over-exploitation of natural resources, It is a consequence of technological progress and the increase in population.

Most susceptible to the effects of climate change are the countries of the South, whose economy is in a strong way based on natural resources, and given the structure of the economy (mostly based

for agriculture) is dependent on Nature. These countries are due to chronic poverty and lack basic infrastructure characterized by low adaptability.

This problem has recently focused attention of world public opinion, sparking massive debate about climate change with environmentalists.
