Global Warming is Harmful!
Global Warming is Harmful
By: Sarah 🙂
Most people can’t argue with the fact that our world is changing for the worst. Global warming is one of the biggest changes that is occurring even as we speak! Global warming is also one of the most harmful changes as well. Global warming causes many species of animals to die, it threatens the safety of humans, and on top of all that it costs a lot to fix the damage.
In the first place so many animals are going extinct we don’t need that amount doubled because of global warming. Animals need their natural habitats to survive, so if the polar and southern ice caps melt then all the animals surrounding those areas will die. Do you as people, the earth’s protectors, want to be the cause of all the animal’s extinction? People need to snap back into reality and care about the animals in danger! As the earth heats up animals need to migrate to places like they do regularly. Animals that migrate might carry diseases, and might migrate to places and take the diseases with them, infecting that whole city, or even the country! Animals of many species will die from global warming.
Global warming can also effect the safety of humans. Some of the driest countries will probably be hit the hardest, such as longer droughts in Africa, all because of global warming. Global warming makes the earth heat up causing heat waves to occur in places that have never had a heat wave before, and also causing the sea levels to rise, because of ice caps melting, which leads to flooding. The safety of humans all connects to all of these problems. Such as the flooding could cause hundreds of deaths because of drowning, or in Africa longer droughts could mean more deaths of dehydration. This is also a big factor in global warming.
Finally money comes into play. Money is a huge factor in storms, such as hurricanes, and tsunamis. Global warming causes more storms to occur. One hurricane is enough, and it can cost up to a million dollars in damage, so imagine how many more storms will occur if global warming accelerates. Some countries such as in Haiti people are still recovering from hurricane Irene. Like all the hurricanes in the world, the storms are getting stronger and stronger because of global warming, which could total up to billions of dollars in the damage, so it’s very important that we realize the dangers of global warming and take action.
If you still don’t realize the dangers of global warming, I don’t know what to tell you. If global warming continues lots of animals will die, it will affect the safety of humans of all ages, and it is very costly in many ways. Do you care enough of the earth’s future to get involved?
