Greenhouse effect opinion
Name: Kalias Jaminson
What do you think about greenhouse effect?
I think the most serious problem that scientists speculate may be caused by a
global climate warming is the rise in sea levels, because most people live
within a few miles of the oceans. A rise in sea level would dislocate a vast
portion of people from their homes, and it would disrupt international trade
by destroying shipping docks. Being unable to ship food around the world to
places that depend on food imports would cause famines. Last month the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued a report written by 140
scientists from 80 countries stating that the best current scientific evidence
indicates that the climate will warm by roughly 3 degrees celsius by the year
2100, if no action is taken to reduce the emissions of air pollutants such as
carbon-dioxide and methane.
