The potential results of temperature change can affect people in many areas of the world. The main outcomes could be:
  • Melting of sea ice can cause flooding from an increase in worldwide sea levels.
  • Changes in global weather patterns can create stronger storms.
  • Changes in wind currents that affect precipitation can increase the length and severity of droughts.
  • Sea levels will rise, causing floods
  • An increase in the spread of disease will occur.
  • The northern polar icecap, between Canada and Russia is almost completely ice free during the summer months.
  • The melting of ice from the Arctic and a resultant rise in the sea level of the oceans.
  • Hurricanes and other extreme weather will increase.
