Impacts of Climate Change
1 Global warming is causing ice to melt- RISE IN SEA LEVEL- melting ice and thermal expansion increase the volume of water
2 and Permafrost to thaw- ground that is permanently frozen these are natural sinks of CO2 can cause buildings to collapse but easier to extract raw materials
3 Global warming is also causing other changes in the climate- increase in extreme weather this then causes the ecology, agriculture and tourism
4 Emissions scenarios are used to predict impacts of global warming- they can see what would happen if the temperature rose and the different impacts caused
5 Could lead to tipping point were temperatures rise that it causes catastrophic and irreversible impacts
