To date, warming and melting of the has occurred far faster than was projected, leading some scientists to conclude that the Arctic could be ice free in the summer as early as 2012. They also said the odds Global warming similar droughts happening in the future had roughly doubled over the past century. This warming is altering the earth's climate system, including its land, atmosphere, oceans, and ice, in far-reaching ways.
All of these can damage or destroy agriculture and fisheries. Higher sea levels will erode coastlines and cause more frequent flooding. Warmer oceans in the future are expected to cause the intensification of such storms.

5 degrees Fahrenheit over the next 100 years, snow cover and permafrost will be lost entirely in many places, and sea ice at the poles will continue to melt away.
Electricity monitors can be found at most hardware store or you may even be able to borrow one from your local library.
There wasn't a climate hiatus Despite overwhelming scientific consensus about the causes and reality of global warming, the issue is contentious politically.
