Not everyone is safe! In 100 years, the world around us could look completely different. Many animals that are endangered now are not expected to survive. Animals will lose their homes because of their habitats being destroyed and diseases spreading. They will be forced to migrate earlier than they are used to. This will not allow some animals to hibernate as long as normal. The effects of global warming will be felt by everyone, including you. endangeredhabitatshibernate

You should recognize the pictures from the state you live in- Georgia. I want you to think about what major crisis Georgia is struggling with.crisis The drought. Does these look familiar?
Global warming causes droughts to occur because it affects the temperature. Areas will become hotter and drier which will lead to increased temperatures throughout the year. That means Georgia’s chances at seeing snow, are becoming slimmer and slimmer! Our summers will be getting hot, hot, hot.
It happens everyday The weather is becoming affected by global warming. Along with the temperatures rising, rainfall patterns change which will result in storm patterns changing. Hurricanes, typhoons, tornados, wind storms, blizzards, tsunamis, and many more weather related events will become more fierce. One recent example is that of Hurricane Katrina. Katrina was a horrific event that could be attributed to global warming.typhoonstsunamis Click any of the pictures to the right to watch a video to see more effects.
Right now, there are 20,000-25,000 polar bears in the world. In 100 years, it is expected that polar bears will be extinct. extinct The polar ice caps are melting. Evidence of the retreat of glaciers has been collected from five out of seven continents. This will result in flooding and destruction of habitats. glaciers Diseases will become more widespread because of disease carrying mosquitoes. Some diseases, such as Dengue Fever, have yet to find a cure. Heat waves will cause heat strokes. This is already becoming common during the summertime in the United States. In the summer of 2007, over 35 people experienced heat related deaths. Wildfires will increase because of drier air and land.

Vocabulary Endangered: a species at risk of extinction Habitat: the natural home of an animal or plant Migrate: move from one place to another Crisis: turning point; climax Drought: long, continued dry weather Typhoons: a tropical cyclone (whirlwind) in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Tsunamis: a very large ocean wave caused by an underwater earthquake or volcanic eruption. Glaciers: a slowly flowing mass or river of melting ice. Extinct: out of existence; no longer living.
