We all face it, we all heard of it, Global Warming: the talk of last and this decade had many effects on both our governments and the environment. These effects vary from occasionally beneficial to the more common negative to the environment.

List of current effects

The following effects include:
  • Ice melting greatly at the Earth’s poles
  • Speed increase in sea level had risen over the last century
  • Migration paths in some butterflies, foxes, and alpine plants have moved farther north or to higher, cooler areas
  • Precipitation, including rain and snowfall has increased across the globe

List of possible future effects

These effect could take place if Global Warming continues, the effects are:
  • Sea levels could permanently rise between 7 and 23 inches by 2100
  • Hurricanes and other storms are likely to become stronger as sea level rises
  • Species that depend on each other may become out of sync, like plants could bloom earlier than their pollinating insects hatch
  • Floods and droughts could distort the yearly cycle of rain even further
  • Less fresh water will be available, by melting the ice caps will reduce the fresh water supply to 2 percent
