CONSEQUENCES OF GLOBAL WARMING
By Natural Resources Defense Council
The latest scientific data confirm that the earth's climate is rapidly changing. Global
temperatures increased by about 1 degree Fahrenheit over the course of the last century,
and will likely rise even more rapidly in coming decades. The cause? A thickening layer
of carbon dioxide pollution, mostly from power plants and automobiles, that traps heat in
the atmosphere. Scientists say that unless global warming emissions are reduced,
average U.S. temperatures could rise another 3 to 9 degrees by the end of the century --
with far-reaching effects. Sea levels will rise, flooding coastal areas. Heat waves will be
more frequent and more intense. Droughts and wildfires will occur more often. Diseasecarrying
mosquitoes will expand their range. And species will be pushed to extinction.
Many of these changes have already begun.
“And species will be pushed to extinction.”
