The effects of greenhouse gas

Discussion The destruction of the natural order of the environment through green gas emissions will have far-reaching ramifications on the survival of other living things and human safety on the planet. Many of the adverse natural calamities that have been witnessed in the modern times are largely attributed to the greenhouse gas emissions (Environment Canada, 2012). In terms of the environmental impacts, there is a high expectation of continued rise in the average annual temperatures around the entire globe. The rise in temperatures will lead to the melting of the melting of sea ice and a decrease in snow. It is also expected that the rising temperatures will have the effect of reducing the volume of glacier coverage and thaw the levels of permafrost in the Arctic. As a result, sea levels will rise above their current levels and increase the possibilities of coastal flooding. Flooding is generally disruptive to communities living along the coastlines and other economic activities such as tourism. Tourism is a major contributor to the economic development of many countries. Adverse disruptions of this sector could indirect contribute towards a rise in global poverty and general underdevelopment. The frequency and severity of storms and heat waves are likely to increase as the world continues to experience the effects of green gas emissions. For instance, the devastation of storms and heat waves has already been experienced in countries such as the United States, Canada, Cuba, Haiti, Mexico, and many other parts of the world (Maslin, 2002). The effects of the storms, hurricanes, tsunamis, have been devastating in terms of the loss of human life, animals, and property. Infrastructure in many of the affected parts has been rendered into states of disrepair in the aftermath of the storms. The natural calamities have also been disruptive to natural order particularly in the manner in which they destroy ecosystems and threaten the survival of certain species within the ecosystems. Scientists predict that global warming will adversely affect the lives of many wild animals that are accustomed to cold temperatures. In the long run, the world might witness a drastic decline in the population of polar bears and other animals that are naturally accustomed to cold weather. Source: World View of Global Warming. The green gas emissions will have significant impacts on the health of human populations in many parts of the world. Canada and the United States are mentioned as some of the places that will face significant health challenges with particular regard to the elderly and children. The rise in temperature will affect their bodies defenses in ways that could subject them to various diseases and health complications (Dinc?er, 2010). Such effects will also extend to the areas of basic comfort in ways that would make it difficult for the people to engage in constructive activities as they will not easily adjust to the weather and climatic changes. Health analysts contend that some of the factors that will affect the populations will likely result from the inability of the physiological processes to adjust to new environmental realities as conditioned by a surge in the global temperatures. Biologists link the status of health to environmental conditions within the understanding of human adaptation. The danger of dehydration remains a reality in the wake of
