Earth is one of the most intriguing planets in our galaxy and especially in our universe. This planet is able to bear and sustain life on its surface and also has one of the most important compounds in the universe H2O. Earth has an abundant amount of water on its surface; making it the primary reason why life can survive. However, we humans that live on this planet are destroying it bit by bit. As human population continue to rise, the demand for fossil fuels also increases. The continuous use of fossil fuels has resulted in global warming and also pollution. Hydrocarbons when burned release CO2 into the atmosphere; in turn too much CO2 in the atmosphere heats up the planet. Global warming is slowly changing the earth’s climate at an alarming rate. Earth’s global temperature has risen 0.6 degrees Celsius since the 1900’s (Ahrens, 388). This steady increase in temperature has drastic effects on the hydrological, ecological, political, and economical systems all around the world. The issue of climate change and global warming isn’t centered on one nation or group; it is centered on all the nations around the world. So it is important to every citizen living on this planet. The purpose of this paper is to examine the potential effects of climate change will have on the ocean, agriculture, eco-systems, increasing global population, and geopolitical systems.
