Global Warming

Published by Anthony Writer
It is estimated that around 200 million people could be affected by sea level rise by the year 2050. Tthe people affected by rising sea levels will move inland in large numbers. Mass migrations never come easy, especially when they involve some of the world’s poorest, with Vietnam, Bangladesh, China, India, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Nigeria and Egypt expected to be hit especially hard by rising waters.
As ice melts, pressure on parts of the Earth’s crust will be relieved, while rising sea levels will increase pressure on coastal regions worldwide. Melting ice could lead to more earthquakes and tsunamis. Studies in Iceland suggest a link between reduced ice load and volcanic eruption, citing the increased volcanic activity at the end of the last Ice Age. Global warming is an economic matter as well.
