Global warming and climate change are major issues for the whole world. Even if we are not aware of the danger they represent, in a few years we will see how important is to take care of our environment. As the temperature is rising, so does the sea level and this can lead to disasters such as coast homes underwater.
According to a real estate website, if you want to make long-term investments in Maryland Coast, you should think again. They used data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, that showed how much the sea level can rise in the next one hundred years. For instance, in Maryland, more than 60 000 homes will be underwater due to global warming.
That means that people can lose their homes and their lives could be in danger. Maryland is not the only state with this threat upon it. New York, South Carolina or New Jersey will lose thousands of houses too. The most affected one will be Florida, with over one million houses lost.
Moreover, the predictions are getting worse. Almost 300 U.S. cities could lose half of their homes and there will be cities lost forever. The authorities should start and make a plan if they don’t want to see thousands of coast homes underwater.
The temperatures in the Arctic are rising with every minute. And this is happening faster than in the rest of the world. Humans will be the most affected but this has implications for marine mammals and animals who depend on living in the ice environment. Plankton is also in danger, which means that the first base of Arctic’s rich food chain could not be used anymore.
Humans are the ones who should take the blame for global warming and we should start looking for ways to improve the situation. There are some simple things you can do: replace the regular light bulb with ecological ones, drive less because the biggest pollution is caused by oil most important thing to know: reduce, reuse, recycle. Furthermore, we should plant more trees and conserve water as much as we can. The water that is wasted in America would help more than 20 poor countries.
Climate change is happening, either we like it or not and it will be our worst enemy. The solution is that each of us to realize that a change can be done. If not, there will be more than just thousands of coast homes underwater. We will lose our planet forever.
