Incontrovertible Impacts of Global Warming

Author Name: D. Raveendranathan | Format: Paperback | Genre : Outdoors & Nature | Other Details

Our Universe is part of the Multiverse – a confluence of countless and infinite numbers of planets with innumerable galaxies unbeknownst to the majority. Earth is unique and is blessed among thousands of other planets with plant life and animals. Homo sapiens are the highest form of living beings on earth. 

There is more evidence of the impact of climate change, especially in extreme weather events, which is taking a greater toll on life. Science shows that emissions are still going up, not down. According to the 2019 WMO Greenhouse Gas Bulletin, levels of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have reached another record high. This continuing long-term trend means that future generations will be confronted with increasingly severe impacts of climate change, including rising temperatures, extreme weather, water stress, rising sea levels and disruption of marine and land ecosystems. At present, Greenland is a looming 660,000 square miles of frozen water. At the edge, it might be only tens of feet thick; in the faraway interior, nearly two miles. If all of it were to melt, it would raise global sea levels by about 20 feet. Most scientists think that this can come to pass due to human-induced climate change.
