Global warming not only affects climate patterns, but also affects the ecology, which is extremely sensitive to the environment, and even causes large-scale species extinction and food crisis. Food and water resources are crucial to human survival, and if harvests and supplies are no longer stable, it will cause turmoil to the global economy and may lead to political risks of competition for resources.
The causes of climate change are complex, but human behavior patterns are to blame for changing the natural greenhouse phenomenon. In the past century, the massive burning of fossil fuels such as coal and oil has caused an increase in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, coupled with significant forestry, agricultural and industrial development, resulting in higher and higher concentrations of greenhouse gases.
After a century of accumulation, the excess of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has led to global warming. As average air and ocean temperatures rise, the volume of seawater expands and continental glaciers in Antarctica and Greenland melt faster, causing sea levels to rise and flooding coastal low elevation areas. In addition, changes in precipitation patterns and desertification in subtropical regions will contribute to extreme weather including heat waves, droughts, forest fires, heavy rains, flooding, and blizzards. All kinds of natural disasters will cause serious loss of life and property worldwide.
