Effects of Climate change

In today’s day and age global warming may seem like a minimal problem now, but let an event like Sandy serves as a wake-up call for us.  If global warming is already causing problems now, in the future it could get worse. Not only will storms like Sandy become more powerful but they will become more frequent as well.  Superstorms are not the only problem that global warming will cause but in the future, more things will happen.  One is loss of biodiversity.  The increased temperatures will disturb different habitats.
Certain organisms are not adept to warmer temperatures and will possibly become endangered and eventually, will become extinct.  The loss of these animals will also affect food chains in these environments.  So in the end, global warming could also affect animals who are adept to warmer temperatures as well.  Besides this, our planet will have increased sea levels, drought in unexpected areas,and many other problems.

There is an interesting video by NASA. Please take a look at it.

Hi Steve: Average global surface temperatures by month continue an unbroken string of many years of being above the 100-year average for months in previous years. The US (but not the whole world) is an exception this year: the newly-wobbly arctic vortex has been bringing more cold air down here than usual. This is because the arctic is much warmer than usual, which allows the vortex to wander more freely.
