What are the affects of global warming?

Global warming is the trapping of heat on the earth surface due to the rise in temperature caused by transportation, burning of fossil feul, emission of gases from the factories etc. It affects in many ways to all the living beings on the earth.

Natural disaster
Global warming can cause more serious, frequent and strong storms, tornadoes, hurricanes and cyclones which affect the life of human beings and the coming generations.

Rise in sea level
With the increase in heat of earth glaciers and polar caps are melting faster than the normal rate causing rise in the level of water in the seas. This can affect badly on the coastal cities. IPCC scientists had said that the level of sea has risen 10-25 cm worldwide in 20th century. Moreover polar caps and glaciers reflect back more sunlight as compared to water. With their melting more heat is being trapped on the earth.

Plants and animals
Some plants and animals species cannot survive in high temperature so these species are vanishing heat on earth.

Human health
Global warming is also affecting human beings. Scientist says that more people can get heat stressed, respiratory diseases and allergies in warmer world. They can even sicken or die because of hot climate.
Some diseases that were only in the warm regions are now spreading to the cooler regions too because of warming. Mosquito and insects were mostly in the warm regions but now they are moving to other parts also due to rise in temperature.

Ecological system
Global warming has largely affected world’s ecosystem and habitat. Some places are dependent on the rainfall, temperature and soil but everything is getting disturbed due to the rising temperature and had affected living beings. Some of the animals had moved to different regions where they can get suitable climate but if warming continues at the same speed then it will be difficult for some animals and plants to even survive.

Global warming has also affected agriculture. It has made climate unsuitable for some crops to grow where they were growing earlier.
