Climate change will cause the air in the arctic to get warmer which melts the permafrost in the ground. The Sea ice will melt due to higher temperatures of the air and ocean, ending in rising sea levels and the melting of glaciers. You might think we have lots of time before this happens but in reality each year we lose about twice the size
Executive Summery Economic growth is vital to sustain human life; however, the unsustainable consumption of natural resources to attain this demand is leading to self-destruction. The Earth is facing environmental changes, including climate changes, which are altering the Earth system. Significantly higher thermal expansion is inescapable if the increasing pollution by carbon dioxide emission continues relentlessly. One evidence of this change is global warming and its impact in the Arctic Ice. The critical role of the Arctic in the global climate system implies that Arctic Ice changes will have far-reaching connotations for, and feedbacks to, the entire Earth. Currently, the warning signs include: rapid diminishing of sea ice, increased mass
12 hours. At the time, it seems like such a long trip. 12 hours on the road. Little did I know that in those twelve hours I would come to place that would change my outlook on life.
The change the Artic will have an impact on the earth. Temperatures in the Arctic are rising at twice the rate of the rest of the world on average, and melting glaciers and land-based ice sheets are contributing to rising sea levels. Rising ocean temperatures are affecting ocean ecosystems. In turn having an affect on the communities and economies that depend on them. The changing Arctic could lead to global changes in ocean-based food security that will place additional burdens on economies, societies, and institutions around the world.
In the Ian Eisenman, Tapio Schneider, Davis Battisti, and Cecilia Bitz’s article “Consistent Changes in the Sea Ice Seasonal Cycle in Response to Global Warming”, published in Journal of Climate, authors describes and illustrates how global warming affect arctic ice. Authors explain that even though, changes in distribution in ice
The Hour Our school board are planning on adding an additional hour to school at the end of the day, i disagree. I disagree because the extra hour will interfere with our students after school jobs, the sport schedules and kids will get home late and will hardly have time to do homework and study. If the kids got home at 7 everyday during sport season, then they hardly have any time to do homework or study for a test. When the kids get home later and have less time to study, then their grades will drop and could possibly affect their future. The students will have to work more hours because they had to go to school longer for no reason.
` Countless of people across the United States and around the world are unaware of what climate change is. It can be a change in the Earth’s climate, a change in the Earth’s usual temperature, or a change in where snow and rain descend. Climate change all the way from the Arctic can affect us in different ways. It can alter global climate and precipitation patterns. It can affect Arctic species, which can be felt globally. It can also increase global sea levels.
The polar ice and climate change is not only affecting the arctic, but it is affecting the human race, too. The ice melting as we all know, but what we don’t know is what is the after affect of ice melting. While the ice is melting it thins out and that causes the ice to spread. The ice has gone through Russia and now to Canada in four- five years. This distance of ice spreading used to take six-seven years. This means the ice is now melting more pushing the other ice faster! What some people may not know is that as the ice moves it carries pollution, and when it is spring and summer all the ice melts and pollution goes into the ocean.
The piece of some the assigned reading that interest me the most is the effect of greediness and behaviors impacting the environment. As such, in ‘Eco Defense”, however the writer pointed out the imperative for one’s to take action to preserve the environment. Addition, in “The call of Wild” the author highlights the behaviors of humankind destroying everything; such as, earth and naturel resources, and as well as animals, trees and plant are being affected by the disruption of the human. Basically my topic will be on the environment and what other aspect that are destroying the planet and also what can be done to educate the new generation about it. Not only I believe it is a patriotic thing to preserve the planet and also believe that it
It has been observed through various researches that in the last century, average temperatures across the globe increased by over 1.3°F with an increase of more than two times in the Arctic. (Bates, Kundzewicz, Wu, & Palutikof, June 2008). The results of climate change can also be seen in changing precipitation patterns, increases in ocean temperatures, changes in the sea level, and acidity and melting of glaciers and sea ice (USEPA, 2014).
Climate change is happening and it is happening quite rapidly all around the world. The earth is undoubtedly warming and over the past one hundred years, Earth’s average temperature has increased by about 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit. (EPA 1) The big problem with the average temperature rising is that it can have a negative effect on the planet and potentially have dramatic shifts in the global climate. According to the EPA, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, “Many places have seen changes in rainfall, resulting in more floods, droughts, or intense rain, as well as more frequent and severe heat waves. The planet's oceans and glaciers have also experienced some big changes - oceans are warming and becoming more acidic, ice caps are
The dependency on fossil fuel for energy has made an irrevocable imprint on this Earth that can affect our economy, climate, and the future of humankind. There is no debate that growing issues over pollution, deforestation, and conservation have been a perpetual concern for many global citizens. Now with the global accessibility of technology being employed for awareness, environmentalist have used this universal tool in helping to spread the knowledge of growing concerns regarding the destruction of the environment. They also, used this technology to aid in challenging and holding responsible many big corporations for the ruination of Earth’s natural resources. Environmentalist efforts such as spreading awareness, creating organizations, and policy making are helping to slow down and lessen the detrimental effects of global warming on the general public.
Carter Eckhardt GEOG 101! 02 Prof. Rhett Mohler Writing Milestone #3 The Melting Planet Do you wonder why each summer lasts longer and gets hotter and hotter? Do you wonder why our sea levels are rising? Do you wonder why animals are going extinct? Global Warming is to blame for
Environmental Stewardship The human race has come a long way since its beginning many years ago. Over time, we have learned how to use our surroundings and the environment to our advantage in order to improve our way of living. As more and more years go by, we use more and more of our resources, some which are non-renewable. As we continue to do this year after year, decade after decade and century after century, we come across the dilemma of a shortage in resources. In order to preserve these resources, we move on to a different source and run that supply dry as well. This is an example of being bad environmental stewards. This vicious cycle has been continued for years and nothing has been done to stop it; sooner or later we will run out of resources to use and the results of this will be devastating. Of course, everything that happens causes a reaction some way or another that usually are not beneficial. This is exactly what is happening as we use up the resources around us and it can be seen in three major ways: the extinction of animals, mass pollution and global warming. This essay will discuss how the overconsumption of resources leads to these three ways and how they are affecting us as the human race.
Climate change and its effects The most significant event to indicate climate change is the melting of the polar ice caps. The area of sea covered by the Arctic ice at the North Pole has shrunk by 10% in recent decades, and the thickness of the ice above the water has decreased by about 40%. On the other side of the world, the ice sheet above the Antarctic continent has become unstable. Glaciers are retreating all around the world. Since 1979, glaciers in the European Alps have lost about one-fifth of their volume, and the loss rate has clearly accelerated since the 1980s.
