These global warming images show its devastating effects on various area of our environment and ecosystems as well as its direct and indirect effects in our economy and social environment.
rising temperature of the earth, polar ice caps and other ice covers on land
are melting. This contribute directly in sea level rising. Rising temperature
will also contribute in thermal expansion of water that will add to sea level
rise. As a result, island nations and countries near by sea are in direct
danger. Bangladesh and Maldives are two such countries. It is predicted that
with 5 ft. rise in sea level one sixth of Bangladesh can go under water. On the
other hand, the highest part of Maldives is no more than 8 ft. and that put
this country at a huge risk.

Low lying lands will go under water as a consequence of global warming!
Due to rise in temperature polar ice caps are melting rapidly. As a result, the animals in Polar Regions specially the polar bear are affected adversely because they are losing their habitats. This put the species in the risk of being extinct. U.S. Geological Survey predicts that by 2050 two thirds of polar bears may disappear if the condition continued.

Polar bears are in the risk of being extinct.
Increase temperature of the water bodies will cause more evaporation and more rise in sea level. These coupled with climate change will increase the likely hood of more storms, cyclones, hurricanes and tsunamis.
Global warming will cause more storms, cyclones, hurricanes and tsunamis.
in temperature will make earth
surface warmer. As a result, dry leaves and land covers will increases in the
forest which will make them more vulnerable to forest fires.
Wild and forest fires will increase
Desertification and droughts will be the direct consequence of global warming. Heat wave and severe droughts are not only being expected in Africa but also in different countries in Europe.
Heat wave and severe droughts will be another dire consequence!
Global warming will directly affect earth's vulnerable ecosystems by making them more prone to extinction. Cheetah and Panda are two such vulnerable species.
Cheetahs are dangerously close to extinction!
Sundarban – a mangrove forest shared between
Bangladesh and India, is the only mangrove forest where Royal Bengal tigers are
found; but the Sundarban is increasingly threatened by sea level rise as a
result of global warming.

The increase in natural disasters like flood,
cyclone, tsunami etc. will have direct negative impact on the economy of the
various nations, increasing the level of poverty.
Children are one of the most vulnerable population!
