(Extreme Weather) by Gretchen Olsen
Global Warming, 2012
Rain Forest Destruction
Destruction of rain forests, increased fossil fuels, and the use of cars--> Increase in greenhouse gases--> Increase of temperature--> Melting ice caps and rising sea levels--> More extreme weather events.
Example of Climate Change
Another example is the heatwave in Texas in 2011. Because of Global Warming, Texas got hotter, and when Texas got hotter, it destroyed many crops and plants. That effected the people that relied on those crops.
