According to the latest study, the dreadful phenomenon of global warming is going to have an adverse impact on the health of our planet in the next ten years. As the temperature of the planet is rising at an alarming rate, it is creating a havoc on the earth’s ecological balance leading to rising sea levels and extreme climatic conditions across the globe.
The effects of global warming is having a far reaching impact on the planet and its resources. Scientists warn that the phenomenon of global warming if not checked, can wipe away the existence of life from earth making it an uninhabitable place. The basic human needs such as food, water and health is being threatened by the intense effect of global warming and rising temperature. The huge emissions of greenhouse gases from the burning of fossil fuels, forest fire and other human induced activity is not only affecting the environment but also the world economy as a whole. The mighty seas and oceans that regulates the global climatic phenomenon is experiencing the worst consequences of global warming since the last three decades. The influx of waste materials, excess absorption of
greenhouse gases and accumulation of plastics is having a devastating impact on the marine life and the global weather system. The process is also hampering the livelihoods of billion of people who depends on oceanic resource by destroying the marine ecosystem.
As there has been noticed a significant shift in the climatic condition due to the effects of global warming, the phenomenon is likely affecting the global agriculture scenario leading to severe food deficiency in many parts of the globe. The fresh water reserve of the globe is also facing the detrimental effect of climate change and global warming. The melting glaciers, droughts, rising in sea level and the change in the precipitation process is adversely affecting the fresh water reserve of the earth. Also the gradual deposition of plastic and solid waste beneath the earth’s surface is disrupting the underground water reserve as well.
Extreme weather events like drought and flooding as a result of global warming and climate change is having a threatening impact on the agriculture and food production sector. As the temperature is soaring, drought has become a normal phenomenon all across the globe leading to alarming level of water scarcity. The increasing level of precipitation due to the effects of global warming is leading to deluge and outbreak of various epidemic. As the climate is getting warmer, the situation is indicating towards a threatening future for the planet and its inhabitants.
