How Will Global Warming Affect The World

 global warming

If we will not make great efforts to try to stop the green house gases to lump over the atmosphere, chances are, we also cannot stop global warming.

The talk about global warming has somewhat hushed down, but this doesn’t mean that this phenomenon is no longer a distinct possibility for us. The threat of global warming will live on. And with it lies the 5 deadliest effects that it will carry, such as:

The spread of diseases

As northern countries warm, disease carrying insects migrate north, bringing plague and disease with them. This occurrences accounts for the spread of malaria in many areas.

More hurricanes

As the temperature of oceans rises, so will the probability of more frequent and stronger hurricanes which we saw in 2004 and 2005.

Increased intensity of droughts and heat waves

Many areas is bound to suffer serious droughts and heat waves. The continents of Africa and Europe is seen as those that will suffer most from this occurrence.

Harsh economic effects

Most of the effects of anthropogenic global warming won’t be good. And these effects spell one thing for the countries of the world: economic consequences. This is for the destruction that the hurricanes will cause to buildings and infrastructures, the outbreak of diseases which will cost money to treat and control.

Danger caused by melting ice caps

Melting ice caps will cause a havoc mainly because of three reasons:

  • it will raise sea levels

  • it will throw the global ecosystem out of balance

  • the temperature will rise and will consequently endanger several species of animals

The effects of global warming are harsh and irreversible. It’s a tough job to look after our environment, but for a good cause, we should at least try.
