Global issue: Global Warming Global Warming Samantha Aguilar The Impact of Global Warming on the Economy and Governments of the world: The impart of Global Warming on the world economy is that the increasing temperatures are now making it harder for crops to grow in their natural environment.
Global warming's impact in the world politically is that each country affected spends thousands of dollars on helping their citizens who are experiencing the changing temperatures drastically.
In Liberia the government spent $47,000 because of the extreme heat that Liberia endured in 1990.
Cocoa beans aren't being grown in parts of Western Africa, Indonesia, Brazil and Ecuador because of the changing climate, and since its getting warmer its more expensive to grow the cocoa beans. Now with the less cocoa bean plantations their price is higher since it costs more to grow and deliver them to different parts of the world where they make chocolate and chocolate products. Evidence of Global Warming Increasing ocean temperatures
Glaciers in the North & South Pole are melting
Population of Polar Bears is decreasing due to the loss of icebergs and glaciers.
Drought in Liberia affected of people
The ozone layer of the atmosphere has a hole which allows harmful UV rays to pass through it.
Floods, cyclones, extreme weather, and droughts in Bangladesh
Cocoa beans are not being grown so much now in Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria Indonesia, and some parts of South America like Brazil and Ecuador. Some Evidence of Global Warming are: References and Work Cited www.emdat.be
The IPCC The IPCC was established by the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 1988 to provide the world with a clear scientific view on the current state of knowledge in climate change and its potential environmental and socio - economic impacts.
The IPCC is the leading international body for the assessment for climate change.
The IPCC meets every few years to review the latest scientific findings and write a report summarizing all that is known about global warming.
The IPCC is a scientific body working under the auspices of the United Nations. It reviews and assesses the most recent scientific and socio - economic information produced worldwide relevant to the understanding of climate change.
Currently 195 countries are members of the IPCC. Bangladesh: Part 1 Map: Research Statistics of Global Warming: Bangladesh: Part 2 Challenges has confronted to stop Global Warming - Bangladesh: Part 3 Success Story: the people of Bangladesh have endured a flood which destroyed most of the crops, affecting ten districts in the northern and south-eastern parts of Bangladesh.
The lower region of Bangladesh are vulnerable to the sea level rise and increased occurrences of intense, extreme weather conditions such as hurricanes and cyclones from 2007 to 2010. The impact of Global Warming on people: Organizations taking part to help reduce Global Warming One of the organizations helping to reduce global warming is the United Nations Framework Convection on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is an organization taking care of the people being affected by global warming.
Another organization helping out is the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the IPCC is part of the United Nations and it's trying to find out how to stop it or slow it down, but this organization combines science and politics to try and come up with a solution.
Conservation International (CI) is also and organization helping out by collecting donations from people and giving the money to the most needed people of the country that is suffering because of climate change.
The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is helping out too. It's one of the worlds largest conservation organizations. WWF’s climate and energy vision is a response both to the science and to new economic and political realities. It will work for a safe and sustainable future for people, places and species, based on an equitable low-carbon society that is resilient to climate change.
Evidence of Global Warming / Overall Statistics Bar/Line Graph: Bangladesh: part 4 Use more eco - friendly products
factories and cars should stop running on fossil fuels because the acids in the smoke are going up in the atmosphere and mixing in with the Green House Gases (GHG). Positive Effects these solutions would have on its residents and the rest of the world:
Poor countries like Bangladesh and others in Southern Asia will have more incomes of crops and hopefully have a much better GDP.
Organizations like the UNFCCC, IPCC, and the WWF will focus on other environmental problems like the endangered animals and use of fossil fuels.
The world will not be threatened anymore and the rainforests, coral reefs and polar bears will be safe.
"The Global Issue" Global warming will have catastrophic effects such as accelerating sea level rise, droughts, floods, storms and heat waves. These will impact some of the world's poorest and most vulnerable people, disrupting food production, and threatening vitally important species, habitats and ecosystems. Global warming impacts people from all over the world by changing the environment that they are accustomed to by either having to endure lots of heat in a place where it is usually mild and cool.
It impacts the crops that the people grow because the crops tie into the type of climate that the particular country has and with global warming those places won't be able to grow those crops because it is much to hot for them to develop correctly under the changing environment.
Global warming has impacted the people of Liberia with a drought in 1990 that affected 1,000,000 people leaving them sick and children malnourished.
Its impact on people is also that they could experience little to drastic changes in their environment. The changes mostly being hotter summers, and more mild winters with little to no snow if the people live where it snows in the winter.
Economically speaking global warming has changed the climate of places where international crops are being grown therefore fruits and vegetables are now more expensive because there isn't many places anymore where they can be grown. Politically, most countries are Parties to the United Nations Framework Convection on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The ultimate objective of the Convection is to prevent dangerous human interference of the climate system. As it's stated in the Convection, this requires that the Green House Gasses (GHG) concentrations are stabilized in the atmosphere at a level where ecosystems can adapt naturally to climate change, food production is not threatened, and economic development can proceed in a sustainable fashion. Global warming has affected the world economically, politically, and socially. Despite compelling scientific evidence, governments and businesses have responded with painful slowness. Even if countries fulfill all current mitigation pledges, the world will still face between 2.6 and 4 ºC of warming. Global warming is Bangladesh's greatest threat because it's rising the sea level of the countries coasts. This map shows how much land the country has above sea level with Global warming advancing. Bangladesh might be set to be under the waves if global warming continues at its rate.

India Bangladesh is located in Southern Asia between India and Myanmar (Burma) and below Nepal. It's home to about 146 million people. Bangladesh has not had enough money to try and figure out ways to help the country recover and prosper with the new climate change challenge.
The country has experienced low incomes of productivity within itself.
People live in extreme poverty with $1.25 per person per day so not many people from its country will even be able to afford donations to any organizations trying to slow global warming down. The people of Bangladesh have suffered many hardships because of Global Warming;
The success story is that Bangladesh has been accurately informed about what could happen in its later years, therefore it is now trying to "Go Green" like the rest of the world because government officials in Bangladesh have newly named global warming a serious threat its citizens in 1989. Now many organizations like the WWF, IPCC, and the UNFCCC are collecting donations to help the people of Bangladesh. Providing them with food and clothing for those who are being affected the most by global warming. Possible Solutions for Global Warming:
