Global Warming And Its Effect On The Global Environment

1144 Words5 Pages
Global warming has emerged as one of the most serious concerns for scientists and environmentalists in the 21st century. This is based on the negative impact of global warming, which is not limited to deforestation, drastic variations in climate, decline in output of global agricultural industry, degradation of ice sheets in Antarctic, decrease in ocean productivity, rise in sea levels, and increase in tornadoes, hurricanes and floods. The primary reason for global warming has been identified as the continuous increase in energy demand by the global population, which has further increased the dependence of global energy industry on burning fossil fuels. Accordingly, a review of literature is conducted to assess the primary reasons and…show more content…
The author of this article highlights the consequences of global warming for marine life and wildlife. Aridity is one of the primary results of global warming that is most likely to negatively affect the reproduction rate among marine life and wildlife. On the other hand, the author also concluded that global warming would show variations in its impact in different regions due to the variations in topical sea surface temperatures.
Davin, E. L., & de Noblet-Ducoudré, N. (2010). Climatic impact of global-scale deforestation: radiative versus nonradiative processes. Journal of Climate, 23(1), 97-112. The article focuses on the negative impact of global warming on deforestation all around the world. It has been scientifically proven that forestation is vital for cooling global temperatures, increasing evapotranspiration efficiency, and avoids surface smoothness. Accordingly, experiments were conducted on the basis of radiative forcing framework to assess the magnitude of global warming impact on rising global temperatures through deforestation.

Journal of Phycology, 48(5), 1064-1078. According to the authors, seaweeds have great ecological importance for engineering the global ecosystem. Seaweeds play an important in preservation of coastal habitats, which include coral and forest reefs.
