Global warming is result of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. These gases trap radiation from sun and hold them from being released back into space. This causes rise in temperature at few places on earth. It is not much noticeable in western part of earth but in eastern parts like North Pole, Alaska and others slight increase in temperatures makes a huge difference. Scientists believe that if current situation continues many kinds of changes will take place which can be either beneficial or harmful for the living beings.

Global Warming: Disadvantages

Global warming can have more of the adverse effect. Some of them can be summarized in following points: •
Global warming melts the ice peaks which increase the level of sea.

Increase in sea level also results floods in low-lying areas and hence loss of life and property in large numbers


Cause changes in weather patterns creating storms, super storms and hurricanes to appear.


Global warming also gives rise to many types of allergies, asthma


The continuous drying of forest leads them on fire which destroys natural resources greatly.

Global Warming: Advantages

Although, Global Warming has more number of disadvantages it few of the advantages too. Some of them are: •
Lands of acute cold can now experience milder climate and some plant growth too.


Since the temperatures in frozen zones will go down less consumption of energy will be required to warm them.


The increase in growing season will also increase the productivity of the crop.


Increase in floods will result in carrying large amount of silt to distant areas which will result in making barren lands at distant...
