Issue: Climate Change
Climate change affects everyone and everything. As the earth grows warmer and the climate begins to change, life as we know it will change as well. For example, the length of farming seasons will change, and other waters will decrease or disappear completely. Because of this, there will be a decline of some plant and animal life on earth. An example of the effect of global warming is that as the polar icecaps melt, there will be a rise in ocean waters and sea levels. This rise in sea levels, in addition to a climate change-induced increase in the severity and frequency of natural disasters will cause millions of people to leave their homes and become environmental refugees.
