How Global Warming is changing the World!

   

Human activity has influenced global surface temperatures by changing the radiation balance governing the Earth on various timescales and at varying spatial scales. Over the last 100 years, Earth’s average surface temperature has increased by about 0.8 °C (1.4 °F), with about two thirds of the increase occurring since 1980. The observed rising temperatures of the atmosphere and oceans has been observed since late 19th century.

It is difficult to tease out how much climate change plays in any given weather but changes are occurring.

1. ) Shifting out sight to the North

With almost all the natural resources accounted for and Arctic ice melting the world turns attention to the resources below. According to a Geological Survey done by the U.S., 30% of undiscovered natural gas and 13% of oil are located here.

   

2. ) Shift in breeding seasons

With the change in temperatures some of the animal´s breeding seasons change too. The animals are more mobile than in the past when travelling longer distances for food.

   

3. ) Country changes

With the temperature shift the level of rainfall/snowfall is changing as well. It is more difficult the predict the raining season and the amount of the rainfall. Floods and extreme droughts are results of this.

   

4.) Changed “high season” at national parks

When is the best time to visit parks? With the earlier arrival of raining season it is difficult to find appropriate time for visit.

   

5.) Genetic changes

Even fruit flies are feeling the heat. According to a 2006 study, fruit fly genetic patterns normally seen at hot latitudes are showing up more frequently at higher latitudes.

The mosquito is more immune to the mosquito repellent.

   

6.) Hurting polar bears;

In search for stable sea ice the polar bear cubs are struggling to swim longer distances. Loss of Arctic ice forces the bear sometimes to swim for more than 12 days at a time. Cubs of adult bears that had to swim more than 30 miles (48 kilometers) had a 45 percent mortality rate, compared with 18 percent for cubs that had to swim shorter distances.
