Our Planet is heading for more Damage.
Global warming is affecting Australia with humans pumping more carbon dioxide in to the atmosphere.
Many things are contributing to this, even flatulating cows because of the methane they release.
Global warming is affecting the ocean’s surface temperatures and it has been observed that there has been an increase in warmer days and nights.
There is strong scientific evidence that indicates that global warming increases certain types of extreme weather events such as heatwaves, coastal flooding and more severe droughts. The rise of sea levels affects coastal property, people and ecosystems.
The Hunter region, and in particular Lake Macquarie, has experienced the effects of rising sea levels due to global warming. Lake Macquarie Council has amended its flood resilient housing guidelines to approve the building of floating houses in the area. Other options include raising floor levels, moving houses to higher land, relocatable homes and converting lower floors to car parking and storage.If ice caps continue to melt, rising water levels will be a major problem for coastal towns across the world.
