PROJECT OF ISSU COASTAL AREA

A lot of coastal zones, that they were constructed under the level of the sea; they are in danger of collapse because of the raise of the level of the sea. These raises of the sea are caused by the climate change that is living nowadays through in the our planet, as the cap of ozone, that it does that it does more heat and that the glaciers are founded very rapidly and that it raises very rapidly the level of the sea.

RISING SEA LEVEL

As water gets warmer, it takes up more space. Each drop of water only expands by a little bit, but when you multiply this expansion over the entire depth of the ocean, it all adds up and causes sea level to rise. Sea level is also rising because melting glaciers and ice sheets are adding more water to the oceans. The causes of sea level rise is because the poles are thawing and also because the ozone layer is opening and the sun shines it’s rays more directly. In the future, if we so sea level rising to reach countries and fill them with water. Level to rise.

Higher Temperatures

Greenhouse gases are trapping more heat in the Earth's atmosphere, which is causing average temperatures to rise all over the world. The temperatures of the world have risen during the last 30 years. Higher temperature can be dangerous, causing illnesses such as heat cramps and heat stroke, or even death.The warmer it gets, the more severe the impacts on people and the environment will be. If people keep adding greenhouse gases into the atmosphere at the current rate, the average temperature around the world could increase by about 4 to 12°F by the year 2100. If we make big changes, like using more renewable resources instead of fossil fuel s, the increase will be less—about 2 to 5°F.

FOREST

Forests provide homes for many kinds of plants and animals. They also protect water quality, offer opportunities for recreation, and provide people with wood. Forests are sensitive to many effects of climate change, including shifting weather patterns, drought, wildfires, and the spread of pests like the mountain pine beetle. Wildfires are already common in the forests and grasslands of the western United States. As the Earth gets warmer and droughts increase, wildfires are expected to occur more often and be more destructive. Wildfires do occur naturally.


Water Supplies

Climate change is affecting where, when, and how much water is available for people to use. Many parts of the world already have very little water, and climate change could make this problem worse. Rising temperatures, changing precipitation patterns, and increasing droughts will affect the amount of water in lakes, rivers, and streams, as well as the amount of water that seeps into the ground to replenish ground water.
