Global Warming's Deadly Affects
By: Benjamin Breeding
- Incremental rising of unhealthy air and water pollutants which will cause respiratory diseases
- Enhancing the spread of disease due to changes in temperature, rainfall, heat waves, and other extreme weather
- Longer allergy seasons because of the earlier and longer spring seasons
- Pathogens in animals will spread quicker and humans will suffer from the diseases when we come into contact with them
Earths temperature has risen 1.4 degrees in the past century, and is projected to rise another 2-11.5 degrees in the next 100 years to come.
The oceans water has become more warm and acidic, which makes glaciers and ice caps melt, and sea levels rise.
The rise of rainfall amounts will lead to more floods, droughts, intense rain, and more frequent and severe heat waves.
