5 dramatic consequences of global warming on the world

5 dramatic consequences of global warming on the world.

The effects of global warming on our planet are becoming clearer and more dramatic. The increase alarmingly rapid temperature, extreme weather events and their devastating impact on human lives, all the more clearly outlines a pessimistic picture for the state of the Earth.
In the last century, global temperatures have increased by about 0.74 degrees Celsius and this change may seem insignificant, but the rapidity of increase is alarming, says Live Science. More than half of this amount has been accumulated since 1979, according to the Intergovernmental Group of Experts on Climate Change.
The devastating effects of climate change threatens millions of people condemned them to poverty, according to a recent report by the World Bank. In this regard, the president of the international institution lending, Jim Yong Kim is sounding the alarm about the need for measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and at the same time, emphasize the importance of helping countries at risk, in order to survive extreme climate change.

The people most affected by these climate changes will be those already struggling with poverty, but the effects will be reflected on the people living in tropical areas and the marginalized communities, said the former President of Ireland, Mary Robinson, quoted by The Guardian.
Extreme weather events fueled by global warming could eventually wins the entire surface of the Earth, and this includes both periods of extreme heat and droughts, and storms and blizzards, show Live Science. A recent study shows that in this century, Asia and the East Coast regions of the United States are exposed to the danger of being hit by more frequent strong hurricanes, reports Live Science. Research projected that the most affected regions will be the North Pacific, North Atlantic and in the southern Indian Ocean.
The dramatic increase in temperature affects Arctic areas and favors melting glaciers. This situation has already reached alarming proportions, for example in the Arctic Ocean, where it reached a high of melting ice blocks in 2012, according to the World Meteorological Organisation. The glaciers of Mount Everest region have been affected by global warming, falling by about 13 percent in the past 50 years. Even residents of the Swiss Alps are exposed to emerging threats amid retreating glaciers in the region.
Melting glaciers in the Arctic is a problematic phenomenon because it results in rising sea levels, stresses Live Science. According to the US Environment Protection Agency, global sea water level has risen by about 20 centimeters of 1870 and the amount is increasing.

Global warming, food security problem could become more worrisome. The drought could contribute to decreased productivity in the agriculture sector, which could also affect the dairy industry looks Climate Hot Map. Soil affected by drought risks becoming impractical because of falling fertility. Also, higher temperatures causes the need of irrigation land with greater frequency, which increases production costs, and bears and conflicts on water resources. The possibility of reduced or even disappearance of winter can lead to alarming increase of harmful insects and plant crops that can reproduce so often and live longer. The negative consequences in this regard is clear and because of heavy rainfall, favoring the occurrence of floods.
Global warming will have a major impact on the lives of various species. For example, polar bears affected by melting ice, Live Science writes. A study shows that baby polar bears are exposed to risk by 45 percent more likely to die if they have to swim 48 kilometers to the pups swim shorter distances and whose risk of dying drops to 18%. These animals are forced to swim even for 12 days due to ice fragility of the Arctic Ocean region.

Also due to higher temperatures, will be at risk of infection by specific bacteria tropical and subtropical areas, says Live Science. Nearly a third of the world's animals could disappear by 2080 because of climate change, according to a report published in the journal Nature Climate Change.
These are five important and alarming consequences of global warming. The impact on people and the whole planet does not stop here, and the effects of increasing temperatures are increasingly visible and increasingly worrying looming.
