What changes are likely to occur in Earth’s major subsystems if global warming continues for the near term, as most scientists believe?

To determine

The changes those are likely to occur in the major subsystems of the Earth if global warming continues for the near term as most scientists believe.


The continued global warming is a virtual certainty in the near term. The average global temperature for the foreseeable future will be increased by the increased release of greenhouse gases such as methane and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and the widespread destruction of vegetation.

Global warming affects all areas equally. A most important effect is a more vigorous hydrologic cycle that is fuelled by the increased evaporation from the hydrologic cycle. Many regions experience an intense rainfall. Temperature will be increased in most part of polar and high latitude regions...
