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.

Reduction in secondary pollutants is not a possible consequence of global warming.

It is possible, but that is difficult to say, as there is no single consensus on the magnitude of the impact of global warming.

There really aren't any limitations of global warming. Literally anything is possible if something is not done to slow down the effects of global warming.

There are various possible consequences of global warming. For example, the ice caps will melt and many parts of the world will be underwater.

some possible effects of global warming is sea levels could rise.Also the weather will start to change.

Yes, it is possible for the ozone layer to recover from global warming. This can be done by stopping the emission of greenhouse gases.

It is not possible for the government to be hiding global warming from citizens. However, it can be said that the government is not creating enough awareness campaigns which will prevent global warming.

The warming caused by Global Warming.

Global warming is not important.Global warming isn't happening.Global warming is happening but it's not our fault.Global warming is happening but we can't do anything about it.Scientists are not sure about global warming.

Global warming is the average temperature of the earth rising, and global warming is causing climate change. Climate change can refer to many things like sea levels rising, more and more extreme weather events, droughts as well as floods, oceans turning more acidic, Pacific nations disappearing and many other possible outcomes.

Global warming is causing climate change.Burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) is causing global warming.Cutting down forests is causing global warming.

No one claims this to be a possible scenario at the current time. A lack of global warming would absolutely end life on our planet.

Global warming in itself isn't pollution - global warming is the gradual warming of the earth. However, global warming was caused by carbon dioxide pollution in the atmosphere, but global warming in itself isn't a pollution. yes it is a pollution

The troposphere is warming because of global warming.

It's possible. If we cannot stop global warming, then the earth will simply get hotter and hotter till no life can exist.

Global warming is warming the air. It is also warming the land and the oceans.

True global warming does not decrease temperatures. So, either the model for global warming's effects is hokus-pokus, or global warming as presently claimed, does not exist. Some global warming followers will have you believe that global warming makes the weather "act crazy". If true, then it is not really global warming, is it.

Yes, global warming is occurring.
