It is a great opportunity for me to write about subject like “Climate Change”. At the time of preparing this term paper I am gone through different books and websites which helps me to get acquired with new topics. I can usually focusing on the topics which are important for us to understand about thus subject easily.

I acknowledge my deepest gratitude to our dearest English teacher Sir Benedict Geropn who is always sincere and helpful in making us understand the different system in making a research paper.

Introduction

Climate Change is changing our economy, health and community in diverse ways. Scientists warn that if we do not aggressively curb climate change now, the result will likely be disastrous. There are many questions that is need to be answer. So that we, humans will make some moves in these problem. Carbon dioxide and other global warming pollutions are collecting in the atmosphere like a thickening blanket, trapping the sun’s heat and causing the planet to warm up.

Climate change is a complex phenomenon, and it’s full-scale impacts are hard to predict far in advance. But each year scientists learn more about how climate change is affecting the planet and our communities, and most agree that carbon consequences are likely to occur if current trends continue. In addition to impacting our water resources, energy supply, transportation, agriculture and ecosystems, the United States global change research program concludes that climate change also poses unique challenges to human health such as:

* Significant increases in the risk of illness and death related to extreme

heat and heat waves are very likely.

* Some diseases transmitted by food, water and insects are likely to

increase.
* Certain groups, including children, the elderly and the poor are most

vulnerable to a range of climate related health effects.
Climate Change affects our environment and natural resources, and impacts our way of life in many ways these are the examples:
* Rising sea levels threaten coastal communities and ecosystems.

* Changes in the patterns and amount of rainfall, as well as changes in the

timing and amount of stream flow, can affect water supplies and water

quality and the production of hydroelectricity changing ecosystems

influence geographic ranges of many plants and animal species and the

timing of their lifecycle events, such as migration and reproduction.
We can prepare for some of the likely change impacts to reduce their effects on ecosystem and human well-being. Making such preparations is known as adaptation. Examples of adaptation include strengthening water conservation programs, upgrading storm water systems, developing early warning systems for extreme heat events and preparing for stronger storms through better emergency preparation and response strategies.

We can each play an important role in stopping climate change. It is not too late to have a significant impact on future climate change and its effects on us. With appropriate actions by governments, communities, individuals and businesses, we can reduce the amount of greenhouse gas pollution we release and lower the risk of much greater warming and severe consequences. Many of the actions that we can take to address climate change will have other benefits, such as cleaner, healthier air. In addition, communities can take action to prepare for the changes we know are coming.
