Climate change is the catch-all term for the moving in worldwide weather event related with an increase in global average temperatures. It’s real and temperatures have been increasingly going up throughout the world for many decades.
Reliable temperature information and evidence began in 1850 and our world is now around one degree Celsius hotter than it usually was in the time between 1850 and 1900, commonly introduced to as the “pre-industrial” average.
What is happening to it? At what rate is the climate changing?
What is causing it to change?
In the Fifth Assessment Report, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a team of 1,300 independent scientific specialists from all over the world under the auspices of the United Nations, concluded say that there’s more than 95% chance that human activities over the past 50 years have warmed the planet Earth. Humans burn coal which is fossil fuels to generate electricity. They use fossil fuels in transport and create industries that can cause climate change, pollution to air and cause health issues. Since the Industrial Revolution there has been a large increase in human activities fuel burning, land clearing and agriculture, which affect the release and uptake of carbon dioxide which also makes the earth extra warm. Most climate scientists admit the cause of the global warming trend is human expansion of the “greenhouse effect”. Greenhouse effect is the trapping of the sun’s warmth in the earth’s lower atmosphere, because of the great transparency of the atmosphere to visibility of the radiation from the sun than to infrared radiation released from the planet’s surface. Global warming is the slow growth in the medium temperature of the planet’s atmosphere due to an increased amount of energy (heat) which strikes the planet from the sun and is being trapped in the atmosphere and not radiated out into outer space. Global warming is the slow growth in the medium temperature of the planet’s atmosphere due to an increased amount of energy (heat) which strikes the planet from the sun and is being trapped in the atmosphere and not radiated out into outer space. The Earth is warmed by the Sun. The warmth is then restored from Earth to the atmosphere in the form of heat radiation. Various gases in the atmosphere that also contain CO2, takes in the Earth’s heat energy and radiates it in all directions. The energy radiated downward warms the surface and lower atmosphere. Adding extra CO2 to the atmosphere means more heats radiation is captured by the atmosphere and radiated back to Earth.
Climate change is a huge concern to the world and its people because it has already been recognized by its consequences on the environment, social and economic. Many people will have a lot of health issues especially elderly people. Climate change will be a big concern mainly for the next generation as the world is continuously being attacked by climate change and Global warming.
The three ways that climate change will affect us is through environmental, social and economically. Climate change affects us through social of how people are going to live and how health is going to be an issue in the next decades due to climate change.
Climate change could potentially stop the development through the world without going through hunger. A strong and logical worldwide pattern is noticeable of the impacts of climate change on crop production that is able to have effects for food accessibility. Food security is affected by climate change because the changes in climate conditions has already affected the production of some staple food. Due to climate change there will be shortage of food because of droughts, flooding, increased salability of the soils which destroys crops. Agriculture and fisheries are mostly dependent on the climate. Increases in temperature and carbon dioxide (CO2) is able to increase some crop yields in some areas. But realizing that these benefits, nutrient levels, soil moisture, water availability, and other conditions must be met. Changes in the frequency and extremity of droughts and floods could create challenges for farmers and as well as ranchers and threaten of food safety. Climate change can affect meat quality in two different ways. First, there are direct effects on organ and muscle metabolism during heat exposure which can persist after slaughter. For example, heat stress can increase the risks of pale-soft-exudative meat in pigs and turkeys, heat shortening in broilers, dark cutting beef in cattle and dehydration in most species. Second, changes in livestock and poultry management practices in response to hazards that stem from climate change could indirectly lead to changes in meat quality. For example, changing to heat-tolerant Bos indicus cattle sire lines could lead to tougher, less juicy beef with less marbling. The soil can only take so much water. After it’s maxed out, the water can pool, flooding your plants and washing seeds away. Weeds can grow rampant. It’s even impossible to get into your garden to tend to your plants without sinking several inches in the mud. You may end up with stunted plants and poor production after too much rain.
Excessive soaking after rain showers and storms can ruin plants’ roots, which in turn affects how plants grow. According to Kansas State University Extension’s Horticulture Blog, waterlogged soil will push out oxygen. All parts of plants need oxygen to survive, so if they don’t have oxygen, they won’t survive. Deep roots may be affected first, but shallow roots can also succumb to damage if wet weather continues.
Drought also affects the environment in many ways. Plants and animals depend on water, just like people. When a drought occurs, their food supply can shrink, and their habitat can be damaged. Sometimes the damage is only temporary and their habitat and food supply return to normal when the drought is over. The main direct effects of drought on the farming sector are summarised in Figure 1. The most immediate consequence of drought is a fall in crop production, due to inadequate and poorly distributed rainfall. … Low rainfall causes poor pasture growth and may also lead to a decline in fodder supplies from crop residues.
