Changing in Weather Patterns
Heat, Droughts and Fires
Global warming cause intense heat, drought, and fires because the large amount of greenhouse gases traps in more heat and more heat makes it hotter and the hotter it gets the less rain and with not a lot of rain land becomes dry and one strike of lighting from a stray storm can cause severe fires. Some places rely on frequent storms and rain clouds and without these rivers can dry up causing a large drought.
Where is this a concern?
Places such as Africa and Australia end up getting hotter which then results in longer periods of droughts which in turn changes migrations of wildebeest and other animals that depend on the rain season. Antarctica also has problems because as it gets hotter outside the ice melts and then results in animals losing their habitat.
Affecting Ecosystems, People, and Agriculture
These weather patterns and changes affect ecosystems by not only increasing heat related deaths but it also decreases cold related deaths which could be good. It will also destroy millions of crops and plants as well as destroy habitats which in turn will harm predators and their prey. With the spread of global warming the end result could be catastrophic to all.
