Scientists Attribute Devastation By Hurricane Sandy To The Effects Of Global Warming

Global warming is the increase of average world temperatures as a result of what is known as the greenhouse effect. Global warming started long before the 'Industrial Revolution'. It began 18,000 years ago as the earth started warming its way out of the Pleistocene Ice Age. On average the earth's temperature rises 2c to 6c by the end of the 21 century.There are 20 deadly effects because of gobal warming.First,dieases carring insects are spreading north,so in why malria isn't fully extinguish. Second, the waters are getting warmer so there is going to be more hurricanes.Third, There is going to be more chances of heat waves and droughts.Fourth, there's going to be Economic consequences.

The force of an hurricane has increased 50% in the last 30 years.Nineth, there is going to be more death because of smog.smog-related deaths predicted to rise by “about 4.5 percent from the 1990s to the 2050s,” according to relevant studies undertaken by Columbia and Johns Hopkins universities.Tenth,desertification, that an elevation in atmospheric and ground-level temperatures is likely to...
