What is Climate Change?

Climate change refers to significant changes in global temperatures and weather patterns over time. While climate change is a natural process, recent trends are largely driven by human activities.

Causes of Climate Change

The primary cause of recent climate change is the greenhouse effect, driven by increased levels of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide.

Impacts of Climate Change

Climate change impacts include rising sea levels, more frequent and severe weather events, loss of biodiversity, and health risks.

Rising Sea Levels

Melting polar ice and glaciers contribute to rising sea levels, which threaten coastal communities and ecosystems.

Extreme Weather Incidents

Climate change increases the frequency and severity of extreme weather incidents, such as hurricanes, floods, and heatwaves.

Impact on Biodiversity

Changes in climate affect habitats, leading to species migration and extinction. Coral reefs, Arctic species, and many others are at high risk.

Human Health Risks

Climate change poses health risks including heat-related illnesses, respiratory issues, and the spread of infectious diseases.

Mitigation Strategies

Mitigation involves reducing greenhouse gas emissions through renewable energy, energy efficiency, and sustainable practices.

Adaptation strategies help communities adjust to climate change effects, such as building sea walls, creating drought-resistant crops, and improving disaster response.
