Exposed countries will suffer first.
It is fair to expect the developed to develop slowly and
at a low emission level rate since we’re not?

Developing countries will be first to suffer from

According to IPPC:s* repots 2001, developing
countries BNP will reduce with 5% every year.
The effecs of global warming will cost 20% or
more of the worlds BNP. Today the damage from

Effects of Global Warming
Arctic ice, glaciers and mountain snows are rapidly
Coral reefs suffers from bleaching or death by stress.
There will be an upsurge in the amount of weather
The chance that an ice age will come to Scandinavia is
The sea level will increase.
Polar bears will very soon be exterminated.
Disadvantages with the Increasing Sea Level
Global warming causes a loss of inhabitant land.
The global warming is causing extreme raining
that causes severe floods in the world.
Scientists say that there will be even more severe
floods in the future if the global warming
These type of floods does not only cause
The global warming effects in the world have caused droughts to
Intense sandstorms have begun to accur in the world.
The droughts are making it difficult for some people to grow crops.
The sandstorms are gaining intensity and occuing more frequently.
After an area experiences extreme droughts it
becomes volnerable for intense rain.
As the drougts and raining intensifiy the severity
of landslides increases.
Because of the malaria many people in malaria
areas have moved up in the mountains.
When the heat increases the musquitos are able
to move higher up in the mountains.
Because of this more and
more people are getting
