How Will Global Warming Affect the World and Us?

We are all experiencing the effects of global warming.

Global warming, It started to show its effect gradually with the change of seasons and extreme weather events. Climate experts 1°C increase what impact it can have on our planet, and iklim dejobof your clique reveals its threatening dimensions.

Playing what is global warming? Let's answer the question. global warming, atmosphere greenhouse effect It is the name given to the event that the gases that create the atmosphere cause an increase in the average temperatures of the earth's crust and seas. Causes of global warming As for the future; Although versatile, we can briefly say that carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel consumption, deforestation and other human actions have increased over the past century.

Earth's climate is particularly sensitive to greenhouse gases; because these gases stay in the atmosphere and can alter the planet's radiative balance for decades or even centuries. The result is an increase in global earth temperature (or global warming) and, more broadly, are climate changes.

Rising temperatures can have a profound impact on Earth's climate, in short. effects of global warming especially the heat content of the ocean, glaciers and the melting of polar ice caps.

greenhouse gas emissions concentrations in the atmosphere, even if it stops suddenly, 0.5 to 1°C is expected to cause an increase in global temperature. With this result, it is clear that even a single degree change will create serious changes on the planet. For example, six thousand years ago, when the world was one degree warmer than it is now, America's farmland, Nebraska, was a desert, and dust and sandstorms dominated the region.

Effects of 1-2 Degree Temperature Increase

Forest fires

expected in 40 years The hot European summer of 1 will be the annual norm, with a temperature rise of 2-2003 degrees as a result of global warming. Extreme summer heat will begin, and heat waves will be observed in temperatures close to the Sahara desert.

Hundreds of thousands of people will get sick and die from the extreme heat. Body temperature to 41C (104F) when it arrives, thermoregulation system starts to break down. Sweating ceases, breathing becomes shallow and rapid. The pulse quickens and it is possible for the person to fall into a coma. If measures are not taken to reduce body temperature, the brain will be deprived of oxygen and vital organs will begin to fail.

Plants will begin to emit carbon dioxide instead of absorbing it.

Nobody will think of going on holiday in the Mediterranean regions, and even migrations from the Mediterranean to Northern Europe will begin.

Agricultural areas will be adversely affected, forest fires will increase.

of Greenland Greenland will go into irreversible melting after the global temperature rise exceeds 2,2C, as it is warming faster than the rest of the world (1.2 times the global average). The ensuing sea level rise will be more than half a metre, which the IPCC predicted by the end of the century. If it continues like this, the entire ice sheet in Greenland will disappear in 140 years. Miami and most of Manhattan will disappear. Bangkok, Mumbai and Shanghai will be flooded. Half of humanity will have to move to higher regions.

Not only will coastal communities be harmed, but water resources will be destroyed when the ice on the mountains melts. The Indian subcontinent will fight for its survival. Melting glaciers will stop the flow of major rivers that supply fresh water. on the world clean water resources will decrease by one third. Water scarcity and famine will destabilize the region. It turns out that the epicenter of the disaster this time will not be India, Nepal or Bangladesh, but a nuclear-armed Pakistan.

When global temperatures rise by two degrees in 2050, more than a third of all living species will be extinct.

As a result of global warming, a temperature increase of 1 degree is inevitable, but 93% chance to avoid a two-degree temperature rise.  And that's just in the next 10 years. reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 60% possible with

Effects of 2-3 Degree Temperature Increase

melting glaciers

Agriculture and food production will fall irreversibly, and billions of people will face an increasingly difficult struggle for survival.

Seawater will begin to mix with fresh water sources and all small and medium watersheds will dry up. Warmed seawater will absorb less carbon dioxide, which will intensify the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and will intensify global warming.

Large amounts of carbon are stored in the soil, the semi-rotten remains of dead vegetation. The generally accepted estimate is that the soil carbon reservoir contains more than twice the carbon content of the atmosphere. The warming of the soil will accelerate the breakdown of carbon stored in the soil by bacteria, and the carbon will be released into the atmosphere. A temperature increase of 2050 degrees, possible by early 3 the carbon cycle will reverse it. Vegetation and soil will begin to release carbon dioxide rather than absorb it. So much carbon will be released into the atmosphere that Able to increase global warming by 2100C by 1.5 it's going to be possible.

In the US and Australia, people will curse governments that deny climate. It will not be enough for the next administrations to lower the bar.

80% of Arctic glaciers will melt, as a result water levels will continue to rise and Superstorms will begin in the oceans.

The probability of avoiding global warming of 3 degrees: if the temperature rise reaches 2 degrees and the carbon dioxide trapped in the soil begins to spread will be close to zero.

Effects of 3-4 Degree Temperature Increase

Effects of global warming will be seen even more intensely. The rapid melting of glaciers lowers sea levels up to 50 meters will cause coastal cities as a result. will turn into islands.

China's agricultural production will collapse and 1,5 billion people will face the danger of starvation.

With rising temperatures, summers will be longer, the average temperature in cities It will reach 45 Celsius degree. Using air conditioners under these temperatures will become a necessity. For energy needs renewable energy sources Not being used will lead to greenhouse gas emissions that cause more global warming.

The most dangerous is at the North Pole frozen in glaciers 500 billion tons of carbon dioxide will be released and will cause a few degrees of temperature rise, accelerating global warming.

Four degrees of avoidance of global warming: If the temperature rises to three degrees and the carbon trapped in the glaciers is released close to zero it will be.

Effects of 4-5 Degree Temperature Increase

When global warming reaches these dimensions, the survivors will be looking at an entirely different planet. Glaciers disappeared at both poles, burned and deserted rainforests, dry and lifeless Alps, rising seas and dwindling landmass and new islets. from the northern regions Canada and Siberia will be the most suitable areas to live. However, even these regions will be quite hot. Also, the northern government may not accept immigrants from the south. Canada as a hotspot could be invaded by China and the United States, bringing the already collapsing humanity a little closer to the end.

Carbon dioxide from volcanic eruptions methane, a greenhouse gas 20 times more potentwill trigger an increase in global temperatures.

Disintegration will begin in the social and political structuring, economies will collapse. Immigrants who do not have access to international aid will struggle to survive.

Civil wars and massacres will ensue for the few remaining precious resources.

Five degrees your chance to avoid global warming: If the temperature rises to four degrees and underground methane starts to rise to the surface There's no way we can escape.

 Effects of 5-6 Degree Temperature Increase

The consequences of global warming will become more and more severe. Temperatures will be reached in the period that ended with the extinction of the dinosaurs 251 million years ago and wiped out 95 percent of the species.

Earth will turn into a dead and desolate rock in space. Growing on earth only dying trees and shrubs mushrooms it will include.

All life forms will perish due to less oxygen and super-hurricanes in overheated seas. from the seabed methane hydrate gas will start to emerge and will cause explosions. Methane, unlike CO2, is flammable. Even at air-methane concentrations as low as 5%, the mixture can be ignited by lightning or another spark and appear as balls of flame into the sky. This effect is similar to that of the fuel-air explosives used by the US and Russian armies.

Then poison gas from stagnant oceans hydrogen sulfide will be revealed.

All remaining forests will burn. The planet, with the corpses of humans and all living things accumulating on continents, commitment to the use of fossil energy will impose a heavy penalty for it.

  • Dear eco-friendly, your post is quite informative. Thanks. I request you to write an article about biomass power plants, which have been described as the only solution to global climate change. I think it's definitely the portrayal of a monster as innocent.

  • Sevgili EkolojistYour article is invaluable. Bless your mind and heart. I couldn't watch the video at the end of your article because it was "hidden". Is it possible to solve this problem?
