Increases in greenhouse gas concentrations due to industrial output is causing ‘global warming’ and global warming is causing ‘climate change’.
Global warming has many effects in the climate system. Loss of the Arctic ice will effect atmospheric circulation patterns. This will impact existing infrastructure regarding food production and have a cascading effect in other areas important to human society.
Exploring the future – ignorance and naivete, throughout history, has led to difficulty; it is through consideration and care that we have overcome, to various degrees, such trials and tribulations.
