Effects of global warming

Scientists blame global warming for the declining of penguins as it melts the ice and heats up the water. This forces these birds to have to go further away too find their food.

Penguins aren’t the only animals that are feeling the forces of global warming

here are some examples: Marmots are ending their hibernation earlier now then 30 years ago. This is because of the heat increasing so they don’t need to hibernate as long as previous years. Also many species of the seas fish are going north to find cooler waters.

Polar bears today are thinner and less healthy than those of 20 years ago.

Coral reefs around the world are predicted to increase by up to a third in size.

Elephant seal pups are leaner because their prey is migrating to cooler waters.

Loggerhead sea turtles are laying their eggs about 10 days earlier than they did 15 years ago.

If this keeps going on the way it is now it will be a stressful life in the future for all animals especially the ones that live in colder climates.

Even if pollution was stopped today the climate is expected to rise at least another degree by the year of 2100 and also the oceans are getting affected by this as the oceans are expected to rise 4 inches by again 2100.

    Global warming also affects humans. It becomes hotter in the summer because of pollution. If people used cars less, or used an eco-friendly gas, then global warming wouldn’t be a problem. The animals affected are mostly animals that live in cold, icy regions. The ice melts, leaving them to travel farther to find food.

    Also, global warming isn’t the only problem. As humans are using more and more land for buildings, gas pumps, and ect., animals’ land gets smaller and smaller, forceing them to travel into urban areas, where they can get hurt by cars, buses, trains, and many other transportation vehicles. The more people build buildings the less land animals have for territories. Yes, there are animal wildlife parks and special reserved areas for wild animals to live, but there isn’t enough space for all the animals that had their territory taken away. If humans stopped using up all the animals land, there would be more wild animals that would live in their natural habitats.
