Group 12 Effects in different aspects caused by global warming
Increasing water levels <ul><li>Increased water level is an effect caused by the melting glaciers. This will, and have already, made huge land areas get covered by water, which is a problem for the people who lives there. </li></ul><ul><li>Economical point of view – the high water level leads to economical issues, people has to move away from their locations to another place and re-build their homes. This becomes a problem for both international organizations and national governments. </li></ul><ul><li>Political point of view – the increased water level leads to huge complications which needs to be solved by collaboration between countries. </li></ul><ul><li>Social point of view - when people have to move closer together it can arise a cultural crash between different religions or people’s believes. In worse case scenario this can lead to war. </li></ul><ul><li>Environmental point of view – if the water keeps rising at this speed, most of the islands will disappear under water in approximately 50 years. </li></ul>
This city will soon be covered by water. This is only the beginning of it … This is what it could look like in most cities in 50 years
Melting ice on top of mountains <ul><li>Environmental point of view – if the ice melts, the water in the rivers will rise and create floods which is good to an extend. But if the floods get to great it will ruin the surrounding fields, the eco system and our societies. </li></ul><ul><li>Political point of view – when this happens the affected places need help from other countries around the world. This demands a good collaboration without any conflicts. All the countries also need to have good media so everyone can broadcast the importance of collaboration in these future issues. </li></ul><ul><li>Social point of view – every nation needs water but certain nations don't have enough. But if the floods starts to come at different places because of the bigger amount of water, it will ruin the ordinary “cycle”. This will create problems for them who want the water, but don’t get it and also for the people who are not used to floods. </li></ul><ul><li>Economical point of view – to stop the large amount of water coming in they must build walls – which is an expensive outcome. </li></ul>
Global and local currents and wind change direction. <ul><li>Environmental point of view – When the glaciers are melting and large amount of new water mixes up with the oceans, currents are changing their rout and their temperature. This can change the whole global climate. It has happened before, when the Gulf stream stopped and a new ice age started in Europe. </li></ul><ul><li>Political point of view – The changing currents can create a new ice age or expand the deserts and this will of course impact the whole human kind. To stop this we need strong politicians that leads the way to prevent this to ever happen. </li></ul><ul><li>Social point of view – The winds can become stronger and develop in to tornados and other nature disasters. This will create problems for humans living in these areas. And of course a new ice age would be devastating for our whole globe. </li></ul><ul><li>Economic point of view – We need to put our planet as the highest priority and that will automatically lead to increased wealth in the world. </li></ul>
The current streams around the globe. When the weather, winds and streams are changing hurricanes become larger and stronger.
The fresh water supply increases <ul><li>Environmental point of view – The global warming makes ice on top of every mountains melt, it will then become a lack of fresh water when it mixes up with the salt water in the oceans. All sources of fresh water will increase which will create huge problems </li></ul><ul><li>Social point of view – It is already hard for many people to have access to fresh water and now it will get even harder when the glaciers are melting away and the rivers with the fresh water dwindle. Water has been one of the main reasons for war between countries in dry areas. </li></ul><ul><li>Political point of view – If war breaks out as a result of this issue, strong leaders will be needed. We would also need a common peace preventing organization, like FN, if not even stronger. </li></ul><ul><li>Economic point of view – A major issue for global organizations is the financial part. It demands a lot of recourses to do peace preventing operations. </li></ul>
The glaciers are fresh water but when they melt and mix with the oceans the fresh water “disappears”. The heat makes the rivers dry up.
