Short Notes on Climate Change

What is Climate Change ? Long-term changes in temperature and weather patterns are referred to as climate change.

Cause of Climate Change

Carbon dioxide and methane are the primary greenhouse gases responsible for climate change.

These gases are produced, for instance, while burning coal or petrol to heat a building. Carbon dioxide is released when trees are cut down and land is cleared.

Cause of global Warming Climate scientists have showed that humans are responsible for virtually all global heating over the last 200 years.

Human activities are causing greenhouse gases that are warming the world faster than at any time in at least the last two thousand years.

Effects of Climate Change

Within the next few decades, the average global temperature is predicted to approach or surpass 1.5 degrees C (about 3 degrees F). All areas of the planet will be impacted by these developments.

During the monsoon season, extremely wet or dry events have increased in India and East Asia.

Environment Effects

Food And Health

Extreme weather causes harm and fatalities, and crop failures result in undernourishment. Warmer climates make it simpler to spread infectious diseases like dengue fever and malaria.

According to estimates from the World Health Organisation (WHO), between 2030 and 2050, climate change would contribute an additional 250,000 fatalities annually.
