Climate Change Impacts

Climate change is already having a significant impact on the world we live in, with global temperature increases of about 1.5 °C compared to pre-industrial levels. This has resulted in numerous physical effects, including changes to the oceans, which have absorbed approximately 90% of the additional heat caused by climate change. These changes are affecting the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of the oceans, leading to thermal expansion, higher temperatures of near-surface waters, enhanced stratification, weakened circulation, and changes in oxygen content. The impacts of climate change are also visible on land, with recent extreme weather events causing significant damage and loss of life in various parts of the world. 

The impacts of climate change are becoming increasingly visible and are affecting all parts of the world. From rising sea levels to extreme weather events, the consequences of a warming planet are severe and far-reaching. It is vital that we take action to mitigate the impacts of climate change and adapt to the changes that are already underway. Governments, businesses, and individuals all have a role to play in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, transitioning to cleaner energy sources, and protecting vulnerable communities from the impacts of climate change. By working together, we can build a more resilient and sustainable future for ourselves and future generations.
