Large fires in Canada
Large fires are an annual occurrence in Canada. In the summer, forest fires result from lightning strikes or human activity. In the winter, forest fires result from arson and negligence.
Forest fires can be large and devastating to areas of Canada and cause significant damage to resources and vegetation. The cost of fighting these fires can be high, but it is necessary to prevent them from spreading further.
In some cases, forest fires can pose a threat to communities and wildlife if they are not controlled quickly enough by trained firefighters and emergency personnel who are equipped with adequate equipment, training, and resources.
Huge hurricanes in North America
Hurricanes are one of the most terrifying natural disasters, and they can be especially devastating if they strike land. Hurricanes are caused by the movement of air masses over warm oceans, which causes the atmosphere to heat up. When this happens, warm air rises, causing it to cool as it moves higher into the atmosphere. This cooling process creates condensation, which forms clouds and rain. When these clouds reach their maximum height, they produce heavy rainfall and strong winds that can damage buildings and homes.
The hurricane season in North America usually lasts from June through November. There is an active tropical weather cycle that extends from about June to November in the Northern Hemisphere and from about May to September in the Southern Hemisphere (i.e., Australia). The hurricane season is characterized by three phases.
Pre-seasonal activity: This period begins when sea surface temperatures over tropical waters begin to increase above normal levels for a given month; it ends when sea surface temperatures fall below normal for a given month (this is also referred to as “El Niño“).
Rising sea levels in Australia
After a long, cold winter, the earth is finally warming up again. But if you live in Australia, that warming might not be so great for your city.
According to a report from The Australian Conservation Foundation, rising sea levels are putting many cities at risk of flooding. The foundation has identified more than 1,800 locations across the country that are at risk of being submerged by water due to the melting ice in Antarctica and Greenland. If those glaciers melt completely, it could raise sea levels by as much as 6 feet (2 meters).
The report also warns about the impact of this on people’s daily lives. For example, Stirling is located just south of Perth and currently only has one bridge that connects it to the rest of Perth—both halves of the town are separated by a waterway. If sea levels rise enough to cause flooding in this area, it will mean that residents will have to travel long distances to get around during an emergency evacuation or other disaster event.
If we don’t take steps now to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect our environment from further damage caused by climate change, we might end up with a future where every single person living in Australia will be forced to relocate because there simply isn’t enough space left on earth for everyone.
Extreme flooding in India and Pakistan
It’s been a tough year for the people of India and Pakistan. After months of record-breaking rainfall, the floodwaters have finally started to recede. But the damage left behind is staggering: hundreds of thousands are homeless, and many more are still missing.
The two countries have been hit hard by severe weather since May. In fact, as of last week, there were still over 100 people missing across India and Pakistan.
The death toll is climbing: at least 1,747 people have died because of the extreme flooding, according to official figures. Many more are unaccounted for.
Thousands of small communities have been completely wiped off the map; entire villages have been destroyed or lost their homes forever. Tens of thousands more are living in shelters across both countries while they wait for their homes to be rebuilt or rebuilt themselves with new materials.
Flooding has damaged crops and livestock as well as homes and infrastructure; schools are closed or operating with limited facilities due to flooding or power outages caused by storms and fires — which makes it even more imperative that children get access to education!
Retreating glaciers in South America
As the world warms, glaciers are retreating around the globe. But there are some regions where the retreat is especially dramatic. In this article, we’ll look at retreating glaciers in South America.
For centuries, people have been fascinated by these icy giants—and for good reason! When you think about it, a glacier is basically just a big mass of ice that moves slowly downslope across the landscape, scraping off dirt and rock as it goes. They are also full of water and other things that can be used for drinking water or heating homes.
South America has a lot of glaciers—and they’re all shrinking fast. In some places, like Peru, more than half of them have disappeared since 1950! That’s because warming temperatures have reduced rainfalls and melting snowpack at higher altitudes where most of these glaciers live (which means less water to feed them).
Some scientists think that if you go back far enough in time before humans started burning fossil fuels (like coal), they may find evidence that older civilizations used ice as a source of energy.
Changes to weather patterns Worldwide
Since the early 2000s, there has been a noticeable change in the global climate. The dominant weather patterns in the Northern Hemisphere have shifted, with more extreme weather events now taking place in the warmer months.
In the Southern Hemisphere, the weather has also cooled noticeably in recent years. This is likely because the Southern Hemisphere is closer to the sun, and absorbs more of its energy. This means that the atmosphere over the Southern Hemisphere contains more water vapors, which in turn affects the way the Earth’s climate behaves.
There are many theories about why the global climate is changing, but scientists are still working to understand all these phenomena.
An increase in extreme temperatures Worldwide
It has been reported that there has been an increase in extreme temperatures worldwide. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has stated that 2017 was the hottest year on record and that 2018 is on track to be even hotter. This increase in extreme temperatures is due to climate change. Climate change is a process by which the Earth’s climate is changing due to the increase in the number of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Greenhouse gases are pollutants that trap solar heat and prevent it from escaping Earth. The WMO has stated that the increase in extreme temperatures is due to the increase in greenhouse gases.
The effects of climate change are being felt all over the World in the form of floods, melting of ice caps, increase in extreme temperatures and etc.
A rise in forest fires
- The increased use of firewood and other fuels for cooking and heating.
- The increased use of herbicides and pesticides can damage trees and other plants.
- The growth of invasive species of plants and animals that are hard to control.
- The increased incidence of extreme weather conditions, such as drought and high winds due to Global Warming and Worldwide Climate Changes.
- The lack of proper land management creates conditions more favorable for more frequent, larger, and higher-intensity forest fires.
Melting of ice caps at the North and South poles
Melting ice caps at the North and South poles are a result of global warming. The North Pole is melting faster than the South Pole, and the ice caps are shrinking. This is affecting the wildlife in the area, and it is also changing the climate. The ice caps are melting because the Earth is getting warmer. The warmer the Earth gets, the more water is in the atmosphere. This water is what makes the ice caps melt.
