View Full Version : Three imminent things to know about Global Climate Change from scientific results

26th November 2007, 09:17 PM
1. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report predicts a temperature rise by the end of the century of between 1.8C and 4C (3.2-7.2F).

2. The report, published earlier this year, also says sea levels are likely to rise by 18-59cm (7-23 inches).

3. Arctic summer sea ice is likely to disappear in second half of the century.

These climatic changes are likely to lead to a rise in the frequency of heatwaves and an increase in the intensity of tropical storms.

We can as well think about reversals of monsoons, intensities of ENSOs, with consequencies of desertification, flooding, hamatan etc.

So, what would be the effects on human health, coastal cities that houses our survival, animal lives, fishes etc?
