The Effects of Climate Change
By: Alexandra Gold

Heat Waves/Sea Levels
2000 cattle in Nebraska died from the heat
Heat waves are destroying crops
If climate change does not occur, then sea level will rise 3 feet by the end of this century
The southern tip of Florida will be permanently under water
Agricultural Loss/Fish Kills
Climate change is hurting ranching and farming in the Us
It brings more heavy downpours and has turned farms into swamps in southern California in 2005
The video, Climate Change Hits Homes stated:

Earlier Snow Water Warmer More Diseases
Melt Shallower Parasites
Warmer water causes eggs to hatch earlier so the young are smaller and more vulnerable
Wildfires/Arctic Sea Level
Climate change dries the soil, the ground cover, and the trees
Wildfires are consistent with global warming
Wildfires last longer and start more easily now
Sea ice shrank and is melting away due to the heat of global warming
Melted ice failed to grow back the following winter
Flooding
Due to global warming, rivers are overflowing their banks and homes are being destroyed
Precipitation increased 5% in the last 50 years
Rain is falling more heavily and there is more flooding and more drought
If we don't take action on climate change, the flooding will get worse
According to the article Humoring the Horror, the ocean is warming faster than has ever been recorded, and consequently coral reefs are dying at unprecedented rates


My Recommendations
I think that people should educate themselves on how the climate is changing and the negative effects it causes
It is crazy to think that my house could be flooded or that I can die from a heat wave because of climate change
I agree with the idea of climate change and that something needs to be done about it to prevent the oceans from getting too warm which will have a chain reaction to many other things, like cattle and heat waves
According to the website Global Climate Change, the current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is very likely human-induced and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented in the past 1,300 years
The is scary because the future of our planet is in our hands
This is an example of why we should not ignore this problem
