Five things to know about global warming:

1.       Economic consequences- most of the effects of anthropogenic global warming won’t be goof. And these effects spell one thing for the countries off the world: economic consequences. Hurricanes cause billions of dollars in damage, diseases cost money to treat and control and conflicts exacerbate all of these.

2.       More floods- flooding represent one of the most dangerous hazards to human settlements and is one of the most potentially momentous impacts of global warming. As the climate changes, a warming of the seas creates ‘thermal expansion’.

3.       As the planet continues to warm, dry areas of land that are already susceptible to wildfires are likely to be ravaged by even more frequent and destructive episodes.

4.       With ocean temperatures being a key factor for hurricanes formation, the consequences of global warming will inevitably include the increased generation of storms and hurricanes with greater power and frequently.

5.       It exacerbates pre-existing health conditions that affects the respiratory system such as emphysema, bronchitis and asthma, and in general impedes the immune system’s ability to fight against infection and disease. A hotter climate tends to lead directly to an increase in the levels of ozone, with smog-related deaths predicted or rise by “about 4.5 percent from the 1990s to the 2050s”.
