Is having perfect hair and good enough reason to destroy the earth? The answer is definitely no. Research shows that humans are the primary cause of the rising temperatures and increasing sea levels over the century. Greenhouse gases are rising much more rapidly than expected and as a result the world is warming up as well. In the future, global warming will cause horrible effects such as heat waves, droughts, floods and storms. Due to these events some of the world’s poorest countries will suffer terribly by disrupting food production, important major animal species, and many habitats and ecosystems will be destroyed. Even with all of this research, the government and businesses have barely responded and done nothing to stop global warming. “It is extremely likely that human influence on climate caused more than half of the observed increase in global average surface temperature from 1951 to 2010,” the draft report says. There are multiple ways to slow down or stop global warming such as advocating a new international climate agreement, promoting energy efficiency, promoting renewable energy sources, preventing greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation, developing and promoting climate change adaptation strategies. Since there are so many ways to decrease global warming, the government and other businesses should follow some of these ideas. Drastic measures need to be taken to protect our oceans, rivers, forests and in the end our entire planet. Climate change will have major and unpredictable effects on the earth’s water supply. Lakes, rivers and oceans support many species of animals and ecosystems and are very important to many industries and agriculture, if these living organisms were to be disturbed then many consequences would take place. For example, since climate change will cause extreme floods and intense droughts. If global warming keeps increasing then floods and droughts will become more common and less water supply will...
