11 Shocking Effects of Climate Change

It’s hard to believe the disturbing facts that our earth is suffering from extreme weather & so many terrible environmental changes.

5. Food Prices
Due to droughts and other inconveniences while trying to grow food due to climate change, this could have a steep increase on food prices and farmers ability to grow crops! Land needs to be fertile in order to grow anything and that can’t really happen without enough water. With California being in a drought of epic proportions and also a state with lots a produce, the western US could see a huge increase on the cost of food by the year 2050 some are predicting. With extreme heat waves, it could cause refrigeration prices to skyrocket. While we haven’t seen the price of produce to rise yet, the rises are known to lag due to the time it takes to grow the crops.

4. Deforestation
Not only can climate change cause destruction to our forests by wildfire, they can also be affected by invasive species. Some species of beetles like the Bark Beetle is known to thrive in warm temperatures. The increase of this species can absolutely devastate forests especially here in North America. With longer droughts and shorter winters the bark beetles have working overtime and have already killed billions of trees in possibly the largest forest infestation in recorded history. They enjoy feasting on mountain pines and spruce in places like the Yukon, Rocky Mountains and even all the way down in Mexico. The feed primarily on the inner bark, cutting off its circulatory system and leave the trees with little to no nutrients to continue living.

3. Ice Caps Melting
Researchers at Nasa and UC Irvine have began to notice a western glaciers in Antarctica is melting at an alarming rate. This could eventually lead to our oceans rising at least 4 feet. Coastal cities could see a rise in floods make some cities uninhabitable. This isn’t the only place that’s melting. Greenland is home to many glaciers and ice caps. In this photo, from the film Chasing Ice you can see melted glacial water that melted at a frightening rate. In some places in Greenland, the stream from the melted water moves at a speed of 9.4 miles per hour! At the current rate it’s ice sheets are melting, it creates enough water each year to cover Germany a meter deep! The arctic is experiencing a crisis and it will affect us in ways we can only imagine.

2. Higher Demand for Energy
A global trend has began and since 1970 the global demand for heating has decreased while the demand for cooling has skyrocketed. With the climate getting warmer and more people, the demand for more energy to produce enough cooling could get out of control. It will be never ending cycle of people wanting to stay cool due to the increase of carbon emissions but need power plants who put out carbon emissions to run the power! We can only hope solar and other clean fuel sources will be able to keep up with the demand. Many are projecting rainfall to plummet in some places. Hydroelectric dams, like the hoover dam, provide energy to many places. With the decrease in water and rain, how are they supposed to be able to provide us with electricity. Other places are expecting there to be even more floods like along the coast line. These floods and natural storms could cripple power generators and disrupt transmission routes making electricity in extremely high demand.

1. Animal Extinction
The widespread damage caused by climate change is not only affecting humans but endangering numerous species of animals who struggle to adapt to the new environments we’ve created. This also causes them to change their behaviors like we’ve seen with migrations and coral Animals that we cherish now like Koala Bears and Polar Bears could be next on the list. The lack polar ice during the summer has lead to Polar bears to cannibalize their own cubs in order to stay alive. But it’s already caused extinction. The Orange spotted filefish who lived in coral reefs are extinct in Japan due to the coral bleaching and sensitivity to warm waters. The Golden Toad is one few known species to go extinct with medium confidence that it was due to climate change. It lived in forests in central America that disappeared due to drought and other climate changes.

  1. The climate is always changing therefore it is good to have a tax that
    is based on this fact, just like there will always be terrorists
    therefore it is good to have a war on terrorism, and all the profit it
    brings to a few. Carbon trading and arms trading, what an unholy couple.
    And that's why we are told to be scared of climate change and terrorists, just give more money and you'll be safer, and just give up your privacy and you'll be safer.
    Climate change in the way it is presented to the people is a hoax, a money grabbing con trick.
    One way to sell it is simply to tell the public that all experts agree, but don't tell the public that any expert who disagrees will lose their job.
    Then tell the public that as it gets hot in a greenhouse just as it does on Earth with carbon dioxide doing the job of the glass.-Anybody who disagrees with the climate change agenda is then seen as stupid, not as clever as you, who understands how a greenhouse works.
    The carbon traders thank God that people are so stupid.

  2. WHAT A DOOMSAYER THIS VIDEO IS !!!!! IF YOU THINK THE EARTH IS SUFFERING …ASK YOURSELF WHY !!!! IS THERE A POSSIBILITY THAT INDUSTRIALIZATION IS VERY DESTRUCTIVE TO OUR MOTHER EARTH ???? WHO HAS THE ABILITY TO CREATE AND TO DESTROY ?????
    NO POINT TO REPORT CLIMATIC CHANGES WHEN VERY IRRESPONSIBLE PEOPLE WHO OWN BIG INDUSTRIES SPEWING BIG TOXIC INDUSTRIAL WASTES INTO EVERY RIVER, SEA AND OCEAN !!!!!!!! ALL IN THE NAME OF PRODUCTIVITY AND BIG PROFITS !!!!!!!

    WHAT MUST WE ALL CITIZENS OF THE WORLD DO NOW !!!!!!!!!?????)

    NEGATIVITY BEGETS NEGATIVITY !!!!!!!!
    JUST LIKE POSITIVE ENERGY BEGETS POSITIVE ACTIONS !!!!!

  3. The earth and sea are definitely getting much hotter, but there hasn't been any
    sea level rise for FIFTY YEARS and there won't be any in the foreseeable
    future. You've been lied to about a LOT of things! Try this
    experiment to discover the surprising reason the sea isn't rising: Find
    a flat, six-mile stretch, where Point A and Point B are at the same
    elevation (use Google Earth to see what the elevations are). Make sure
    there are no obstructions between the two points. Now check a
    conservative curve calculator, like http://www.metabunk.org/curve,
    to see what the "hidden" amount should be, at your height. Then go
    look, using just your eyes, or binoculars or a telescope. Is there
    anything "missing"? Spoiler: There won't be, as I've seen over and
    over, because there is no curve! ;-)

  4. Typical liberal agenda…. breathable air, drinkable water, being alive. The Chinese created the global warming theory to undermine american industry, Alex Jones told me when we were on the mother ship together.

  5. There are a few things not been said:
    To Place 1: Specially marine Life: Plankton, which is not only the basic of all the marine food chain, it is also converting the carbon out of the atmosphere, much much more then all the trees and all the other vegetation does world wide, what is very serious when you got too much warming by CO2 as a climate gas and it keeps the Oceans alive what means fresh water, a dead ocean does say no fresh water anymore everywhere world wide, what will bring death to everything.

    Also not mentioned and listed: Is sealed Methane in Permafrost: What is a very giant amount of Methane and CO2 and it will multiply the content of our greenhouses gases about a factor of 1000 times more, I think this does say everything, you do not need to calculate, even when a very small part of it will melt and it will multiply the greenhouses gases content in the atmosphere by a factor of only 10 times more, everything will be dead and the Permafrost melting did rapid accelerate just a few years ago and will now start to add a lot of greenhouse gases and energy to the atmosphere.

    There are also a lot of other points not mentioned and are more important then allergies, like: Changing Jet streams, Ocean Acidification, Starting Mass-Extinction on Marine Life, starting extinction of bees, Albedo EFX, Economical Impact, Impact on Food, rising crop failure rate/overfishing and ending fresh water by Ocean acidification by CO2, slowing down Ocean streams, long term warming of the oceans, desertification, more water vapor by warming, ……

  6. just using logic or common sense you would believe the science if you take & never replace you run out.Pull oil coal natural gas you leave empty spaces eventually it will collapse burn the fuels your put pollution in the air has to change the air quality which means weather affected think about it

  7. Step right up folks & buy your carbon credits right here at "Al Gore's carbon credit discount store" You will never have to worry about being busted by the green police if you buy enough carbon credits. They make great gifts too.
