Global WarmingAll arguments have two sides to them. The global warming issue is not an exception to that general rule. I believe that global warming is partly natural process, but our industrial activities have majorly influenced the climate changes. These changes are causing extinction in some animals like the polar bears and the melting of the Arctic that causes sea levels to rise. Global warming would also cause extreme weather like hurricane Katrina and more frequent and harsher droughts. The warming of the Earth would also bring more disease caring insects to migrate north: bringing plague and disease with them. The extreme weather causes millions of dollars ...view middle of the document...

Global warming will be a huge issue later in the future. Weather like Hurricane Katrina, will be seen more often and ever more violent hurricanes can be expected with the warmer oceans. The dry air and heated atmosphere will bring about more things like: bigger forest fires, more serious droughts, large floods from heavier rainfall, and of course more deadly heat waves in major cities. If the high temperatures cause droughts/floods in some areas, especially farm areas, then there will be a shortage of food from crop destruction. Water shortage also threatens livestock and the people living in these areas. Over flooding can cause disasters like New Orleans to be more frequent in coastal areas, bringing millions of dollars in damage to homes and thousands of deaths, to the poorer people who couldn't afford to leave. The dry air would dry out the leaves and bark of the trees, making them more susceptible to forest fires (Global Warming and Extreme Weather).Warmer weather would also bring about more deaths by diseases and disease carrying insects. Disease-bearing mosquitoes will be the cause of some malaria epidemics in highland areas since normally, the cold weather kept the population of these deadly mosquitoes down. Mosquitoes also use water to lay their eggs in, so if there are more floods, there are more places for the disease-bearing mosquitoes to reproduce diseased young. With the spread of malaria, there will also the spread of dengue and West Nile virus. This won't affect people in the more civilized countries with public health care, modern medication, and early vaccination shots. It will majorly affect the poorer third world countries, like Africa that have no to access to proper treatment or don't have any prevention measures (Global warming causing disease to rise).The diseases and weather would also cause millions of dollars in damages and for controlling disease. For starters, foods and other goods would become more expensive, since there would be shortages in crops. Refugees from natural disasters need supplies to live and places to live of course. Most refugees won't have enough or no money...
