The consequences of global warming are becoming more and more evident, since they have become a reality where droughts predominate Hurricanes hunger, poverty and the destruction of many regions of the planet. Fortunately, we still have time to reverse this damage to the environment. And restore the ozone layer.
What are the consequences of global warming?
Before going into the matter of the consequences of global warming, it is appropriate to talk about this phenomenon as such.
In simple words, it is about the damage that the pollution caused by the activities carried out by human beings has caused in the ozone layer, which surrounds the planet Earth and protects it from the sun’s rays.
Consequently, the composition of said layer has been altered and diminished, causing the incidence of the sun’s rays to be increasing on planet Earth and, of course, the impact of these emissions is altering life as we know it.
1. Warmer temperatures
When polluting gases accumulate in the atmosphere, temperatures increase? and climatic factors vary causing droughts and increasing the risk of fires that destroy the vegetation of the planet
2. More intense storms
The very fact that temperatures rise and droughts are generated implies that the rains are less and less frequent and more intense at those times when rainfall is manifested, therefore the level of flooding and the severity of the damage increases. that can be caused by them.
3. Spread of disease
Temperature changes can generate favorable environments for the proliferation of certain diseases such as Chagas disease, dengue fever, among others that, although they have been eradicated in developed countries, there are still many nations where they still manifest themselves.
4. Stronger heat waves
As a consequence of the global warming of our planet, there has been an accelerated burning of exhaustible fossil fuels at the North Pole, which has caused this region of the planet to be hotter than ever and has affected the health and lifestyle of many people due to increased heat waves. As well as an increase in its frequency and intensity.
5. Melting of glaciers
When the oceans have higher temperatures than usual, they cause the melting of the ice in the polar ice caps, which generates a rise in sea level, the effects of this phenomenon at a global level cause important changes in the availability of drinking and irrigation water. as well as the patterns of water circulation in the oceans, putting at risk the survival of plant and animal species that live in these ecosystems.
6. Most dangerous hurricanes
With the increase in the temperature of the sea, Hurricanes become faster and more dangerous because this is the means that the planet has to distribute the excess heat that exists in some warm areas towards the colder ones.
The higher the temperature, the more likely it is that hurricanes will occur and consequently the damage they cause such as the destruction of cities, crops, plants, factories, homes and the proliferation of diseases.
7. Ecosystem change
When the temperature rises, rainfall is less frequent, drought increases and occasional floods cause a general change in the climate, which alters the duration of the seasons and produces the manifestation of patterns typical of monsoon climates.
8. Disappearance of animal species
As a consequence of global warming and the habitats of many species are changing and disappearing much faster than you can adapt for this reason, there are various species that are dying such as polar bears because they can not reach and Chunks of ice floating and migratory birds that are losing their ability to migrate because they are not able to follow current temperature fluxes.
9. Sea level rise
As we mentioned before, as the ice melts, the water in the seas and oceans increases and as a consequence, many islands may disappear in the future, just as they may affect many cities.
10. More expensive foods
Global warming has put at risk the production of certain basic foods such as wheat and the people who live from this type of crop. The more scarce a food is, the more expensive it becomes, which generally affects all consumers and puts the survival of the human species at risk.
