Sad statistics: 25 Alarming Global Warming Facts

Sad statistics: 25 Alarming Global Warming Facts | Easy Ways To Get Your Own List | Scoop.it

Global warming is among the most alarming environmental issues that the world faces today. This phenomenon does not simply involve the significant rise in the earth’s temperature but a lot more. The adverse effects of global warming have become more and more apparent since the dawn of the 20th century, with more hurricanes and tropical storms causing massive destruction in different areas around the world, more animal species losing their habitats and becoming extinct, and more people dying because of too much heat. Here are 25 alarming global warming statistics.

Hopefully seeing the efforts of these African countries to better their ecosystem gives the rest of the world the kick it needs to help out countries that are suffering. The countries are the ones that are hit with the worst conditions for their land, causing it to dry up due to the extreme heat and limited rainfall, the overgrazing of animals feeding of the land and contributing to the lands degradation. This Project is moving ahead nicely, with the countries establishing sustainable farms that will help food production.

By fixing the environmental factors threatening the region, these countries will see not just an improvement in their lands and biodiversity but across political and economic factors as well. It can increase crop yield which can in turn help offer stability to regions that are experiencing problems stemming from poverty in insufficient food sources. The project is promising because it is not a blanket plan across the entire region, but is tailored to fit the unique and different places found throughout the area.

I like the idea of these countries who face the same issues joining together to combat and find a solution for there problems with climate change, desertion, gentrification. I like the idea of the African continent joining arms in order to address the same issues there neighboring countries face. While Africa is always portrayed as a land ridden with war and strife with one another, this great image of all these nations uniting is a positive move towards a bright future for the continent.
