The Consequences of Climate Change

Long-term changes in temperature and weather patterns are referred to as climate change. These changes could be caused by natural processes, such oscillations in the solar cycle. Since the 1800s, burning fossil fuels like coal, oil, and gas has been the primary cause of climate change, which is largely attributable to human activity.

With sustained ocean warming and ocean acidification, the rate of global sea level rise has accelerated since 2013 and reached a new peak in 2021. Several United Nations organisations, national meteorological and hydrological services, and scientific experts all contributed to the report. 

 

By affecting the quality of the air and water, spreading some diseases more widely, and changing the frequency or severity of extreme weather events, climate change can also have an effect on human health. Coastal habitats and communities are in danger due to rising sea levels.
