20091202 Comenius Geographical Aspects

  1. 1. Geographical point of view
  2. 2. Increasing water levels <ul><li>Islands and countries will be under water. </li></ul><ul><li>More rain more often. </li></ul><ul><li>This will result in flooding. </li></ul><ul><li>Electricity supply could be knocked out. </li></ul><ul><li>People will be forced to move. </li></ul><ul><li>Supply of food will diminish. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Melting ice on top of mountains <ul><li>The melting of the ice tops will lead to increased capacity of the rivers and their strength which causes increased erosion. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s leading to a new landscape </li></ul><ul><li>It would affect agriculture </li></ul><ul><li>Shortage of food </li></ul>
  4. 4. Global and local currents and wind change direction. <ul><li>Glacial melting might cause a change of direction for the Gulf and many other streams. </li></ul><ul><li>Global warming increases the amount of weather disasters </li></ul>
  5. 5. The fresh water supply <ul><li>The ice will melt causing a temporary abundance of fresh water. </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of fresh water caused by increased salinity </li></ul>
