Climate Change

Change in average temperature of earth’s surface is termed as climate change. Climate change is a natural phenomenon but post the industrial revolution period, human activity is cited as the important trigger for change in climatic condition on the earth. Anthropocentric activities increase the greenhouse gas concentration in the atmosphere that traps more amount of heat, leading to global warming and thus contributing to climate change. Some of the consequences of climate change predicted by researchers are

1.       Melting of glaciers and thereby increase in mean sea level

2.       Submergence of coastal areas

3.       Increased risk of droughts, and floods

4.       Disappearance certain species of plants and animals
