Over the last hundred years or so, the instrumental temperature record as
shown a trend in climate oI increased global mean temperature, i.e.,
global warming. Other observed changes include Arctic shrinkage,
Arctic methane release, releases oI terrestrial carbon Irom permaIrost
regions and Arctic methane release in coastal sediments, and sea level
Global average temperature is predicted to increase over this century,
with a probable increase in Irequency oI some extreme weather events,
and changes in rainIall patterns. Moving Irom global to regional scales,
there is increased uncertainty over how climate will change. The
probability oI warming having unIoreseen consequences increases with
the rate, magnitude, and duration oI climate change. Some oI the
physical impacts oI climate change are irreversible at continental and
global scales.
With medium conIidence, IPCC concluded that with a global average
temperature increase oI 14C, partial delectation oI the Greenland ice
sheet would occur over a period oI centuries to millennia. Including the
possible contribution oI partial delectation oI the West Antarctic Ice
Sheet, sea level would rise by 46 m or more.

The impacts oI climate change across world population will not be
distributed evenly. Some regions and sectors are expected to experience
beneIits while others will experience costs. With greater levels oI
warming, it is very likely that beneIits will decline and costs increase.
Low-latitude and less-developed areas are probably at the greatest risk
Irom climate change. With human systems, adaptation potential Ior
climate change impacts is considerable, although the costs oI adaptation
are largely unknown and potentially large.
In a literature assessment, Schneider concluded, with high conIidence,
that climate change would likely result in reduced diversity oI
ecosystems and the extinction oI many species.

Lffects of g|oba| warm|ng
] Effects on weatber
Increasing temperature is likely to lead to increasing precipitation but
the eIIects on storms are less clear. A Culprit on the Rise it's generally
well known that alpine glaciers, Greenland's glacial ice pack and the
polar ice caps are retreating. The warming planet is melting them,
Ireeing up Iresh water to Ilow into the seas. As the surIace oI the ice
reduces in size, the reIlectivity oI the area is reduced. More heat is
absorbed, and the ice melts even more.
At the same time, the relatively dark ocean waters absorb heat Irom the
atmosphere. As they do, they respond as matter normally does by
expanding. As they do so, they take up more space, thereby causing the
water to expand. Brought together, these two Iorces combine as
noticeable changes to the earth's oceans.
Fxtreme weuther
IPCC predicted that in the Iuture, over most land areas, the Irequency oI
warm spells or heat waves would very likely increase. Other likely
changes are listed below:
O lncreased areas wlll be affecLed by droughL
O 1here wlll be lncreased lnLense Lroplcal cyclone acLlvlLy
O 1here wlll be lncreased lncldences of exLreme hlgh sea level

ZUreuxeJ frexhwuter flow
Research based on satellite observations, published in October, 2010,
shows an increase in the Ilow oI Ireshwater into the world's oceans,
partly Irom melting ice and partly Irom increased precipitation driven by
an increase in global ocean evaporation. The increase in global
Ireshwater Ilow, based on data Irom 1994 to 2006, was about 18.
Much oI the increase is in areas which already experience high rainIall.
One eIIect, as perhaps experienced in the 2010 Pakistan Iloods, is to
overwhelm Ilood control inIrastructure.
4)Biogeochemical cycles:
Climate change may have an eIIect on the carbon cycle in an
interactive "Ieedback" process. A Ieedback exists where an initial
process triggers changes in a second process that in turn inIluences
the initial process. A positive Ieedback intensiIies the original
process, and a negative Ieedback reduces it (IPCC, 2007d:78).
Models suggest that the interaction oI the climate system and the
carbon cycle is one where the Ieedback eIIect is positive.

&sing the A2 SRES emissions scenario, Schneider et al.. (2007:789)
Iound that this eIIect led to additional warming by 2100, relative to the
1990-2000 periods, oI 0.1 to 1.5 C. This estimate was made with high
conIidence. The climate projections made in the IPCC Forth Assessment
Report oI 1.1 to 6.4 C account Ior this Ieedback eIIect. On the other
hand, with medium conIidence, Schneider et al. (2007) commented that
additional releases oI GHGs were possible Irom permaIrost, peat lands,
wetlands, and large stores oI marine hydrates at high latitudes.
Glacier retreat and disappearance
IPCC Iound that, on average,
mountain glaciers and snow
cover had decreased in both
the northern and southern
hemispheres. This widespread
decrease in glaciers and ice
caps has contributed to
observed sea level rise. With
very high or high conIidence,
IPCC made a number oI predictions relating to Iuture changes in

In Latin America, changes in precipitation patterns and the
disappearance oI glaciers will signiIicantly aIIect water availability Ior
human consumption, agriculture, and energy production
In Polar Regions, there will be reductions in glacier extent and the
thickness oI glaciers

%OxygeZ JepletloZ
The amount oI oxygen dissolved in the oceans may decline, with
adverse consequences Ior ocean liIe.
] ceans
The role oI the oceans in global warming is a complex one. The oceans
serve as a sink Ior carbon dioxide, taking up much that would otherwise
remain in the atmosphere, but increased levels oI CO
have led to ocean
acidiIication. Furthermore, as the temperature oI the oceans increases,
they become less able to absorb excess CO
. Global warming is
projected to have a number oI eIIects on the oceans. Ongoing eIIects
include rising sea levels due to thermal expansion and melting oI
glaciers and ice sheets, and warming oI the ocean surIace, leading to
increased temperature stratiIication. Other possible eIIects include large-
scale changes in ocean circulation.

issolving CO
in seawater increases the hydrogen ion concentration in
the ocean, and thus decreases ocean pH. Caldeira and Wickett placed the
rate and magnitude oI modern ocean acidiIication changes in the context
oI probable historical changes during the last 300 million years. Since
the industrial revolution began, it is estimated that surIace ocean pH has
dropped by slightly more than 0.1 units, and it is estimated that it will
drop by a Iurther 0.3 to 0.5 units by 2100 as the oceans absorb more
anthropogenic CO
IPCC reported that since 1961, global average sea level had risen at an
average rate oI 1.8 mm/yr. Between 1993 and 2003, the rate increased
above the previous period to 3.1mm/yr. IPCC were uncertain whether
the increase in rate Irom 1993 to 2003 was due to natural variations in
sea level over the time period, or whether it reIlected an increase in the
underlying long-term trend.
IPCC projected sea level rise to the end oI the 21
century using the
SRES emission scenarios. Across the six SRES marker scenarios, sea
level was projected to rise by 18 to 59 cm. This projection was Ior the
time period 2090-2099, with the increase in level relative to average sea
levels over the 1980-1999 periods.

%emperature rise
From 1961 to 2003, the global ocean temperature has risen by 0.10 C
Irom the surIace to a depth oI 700 m. There is variability both year-to-
year and over longer time scales, with global ocean heat content
observations showing high rates oI warming Ior 1991 to 2003, but some
cooling Irom 2003 to 2007. The temperature oI the Antarctic Southern
Ocean rose by 0.17 C between the 1950s and the 1980s, nearly twice
the rate Ior the world's oceans as a whole. As well as having eIIects on
$ocial systems
Climate change will impact agriculture and Iood production around the
world due to: the eIIects oI elevated CO
in the atmosphere, higher
temperatures, altered precipitation and transpiration regimes, increased
Irequency oI extreme events, and modiIied weed, pest, and pathogen
pressure. In general, low-latitude areas are at most risk oI having
decreased crop yields. With low to medium conIidence, Schneider et al.
concluded that Ior about a 1 to 3C global mean temperature increase
there would be productivity decreases Ior some cereals in low latitudes,
and productivity increases in high latitudes. With medium conIidence,
global production potential was predicted to:
O lncrease up Lo around 3C
O very llkely decrease above abouL 3 Lo 4C
Most oI the studies on global agriculture assessed by Schneider et al. had
not incorporated a number oI critical Iactors, including changes in
extreme events, or the spread oI pests and diseases.

ealth Effects
Human beings are exposed to climate change through changing weather
patterns and indirectly through changes in water, air and Iood quality
and changes in ecosystems, agriculture, industry and settlements and the
economy. According to a literature assessment by ConIalonieri et al., the
eIIects oI climate change to date have been small, but are projected to
progressively increase in all countries and regions.
With high conIidence, ConIalonieri et al. concluded that climate change
had altered the seasonal distribution oI some allergenic pollen species.
With medium conIidence, they concluded that climate change had:
O altered the distribution oI some inIectious disease vectors
O increased heat wave-related deaths
With high conIidence, IPCC projected that:
O the health status oI millions oI people would be aIIected through,
Ior example, increases in malnutrition; increased deaths, diseases
and injury due to extreme weather events; increased burden oI
diarrhoeal diseases; increased Irequency oI cardio-respiratory
diseases due to high concentrations oI ground-level ozone in urban
areas related to climate change; and altered spatial distribution oI
some inIectious diseases.

O climate change would bring some beneIits in temperate areas, such
as Iewer deaths Irom cold exposure, and some mixed eIIects such
as changes in range and transmission potential oI malaria in AIrica.
Overall, IPCC expected that beneIits would be outweighed by
negative health eIIects oI rising temperatures, especially in
developing countries.
With very high conIidence, ConIalonieri et al. concluded that economic
development was an important component oI possible adaptation to
climate change. Economic growth on its own, however, was not judged
to be suIIicient to insulate the world's population Irom disease and injury
due to climate change. The manner in which economic growth occurs
was judged to be important, along with how the beneIits oI growth are
distributed in society. Examples oI other important Iactors in
determining the health oI populations were listed as: education, health
care, and public-health inIrastructure.

This section has been split to Climate change, industry and society. This
section may need to be cleaned up or summarized
With high conIidence, ConIalonieri et al. projected that malnutrition
would increase due to climate change. This link is associated with
climate variability and change. rought reduces variety in diets and
reduces overall consumption. This can lead to micronutrient
The World Health Organization (WHO) conducted a regional and global
assessment to quantiIy the amount oI premature morbidity and mortality
due to a range oI Iactors, including climate change. Projections were
made over Iuture climate change impacts.
Limited adjustments Ior adaptation were included in the estimates based
on these projections. Projected relative risks attributable to climate
change in 2030 varied by health outcome and region.

Risks were largely negative, with most oI the projected disease burden
due to increases in diarrhoeal disease and malnutrition. These increases
were primarily in low-income populations already experiencing a large
burden oI disease.
Extreme events
With high conIidence, ConIalonieri et al. projected that climate change
would increase the number oI people suIIering Irom death, disease and
injury Irom heat waves, Iloods, storms, Iires and droughts.
Floods and weather disasters
Floods are low-probability, high-impact events that can overwhelm
physical inIrastructure and human communities. Major storm and Ilood
disasters have occurred in the last two decades.
The impacts oI weather disasters are considerable and unequally
distributed. For example, natural disasters have been shown to result in
increased domestic violence against - and post-traumatic stress disorders
in women. In terms oI deaths and populations aIIected, Iloods and
tropical cyclones have the greatest impact in South Asia and Latin

Vulnerability to weather disasters depends on the attributes oI the person
at risk, including where they live and their age, as well as other social
and environmental Iactors. High-density populations in low-lying
coastal regions experience a high health burden Irom weather disasters.
eat waves
Hot days, hot nights and heat waves have become more Irequent. Heat
waves are associated with marked short-term increases in mortality.
For example, in August 2003, a heat wave in Europe resulted in excess
mortality in the range oI 35,000 total deaths.
Heat-related morbidity and mortality is projected to increase. The health
burden could be relatively small Ior moderate heat waves in temperate
regions, because deaths occur primarily in susceptible persons.
The eIIects oI drought on health include deaths, malnutrition, inIectious
diseases and respiratory diseases. Countries within the "Meningitis Belt"
in semi-arid sub-Saharan AIrica experience the highest endemicity and
epidemic Irequency oI meningococcal meningitis in AIrica, although
other areas in the RiIt Valley, the Great Lakes, and southern AIrica are
also aIIected.

The spatial distribution, intensity, and seasonality oI meningococcal
(epidemic) meningitis appear to be strongly linked to climate and
environmental Iactors, particularly drought. The cause oI this link is not
Iully understood.
In some regions, changes in temperature and precipitation are projected
to increase the Irequency and severity oI Iire events. Forest and bush
Iires cause burns, damage Irom smoke inhalation and other injuries.
Infectious disease vectors
With high conIidence, ConIalonieri et al. projected that climate change
would continue to change the range oI some inIectious disease vectors.
Vector-borne diseases (VB) are inIections transmitted by the bite oI
inIected arthropod species, such as mosquitoes, ticks, triatomine bugs,
sand Ilies, and black Ilies. There is some evidence oI climate-change-
related shiIts in the distribution oI tick vectors oI disease, oI some (non-
malarial) mosquito vectors in Europe and North America. Climate
change has also been implicated in changes in the breeding and
migration dates oI several bird species. Several species oI wild bird can
act as carriers oI human pathogens as well as oI vectors oI inIectious

It is possible that climate change will increase the number oI people at
risk oI dengue. Based on the expert judgment oI ConIalonieri et al., this
projection had about a two-in-ten chance oI being correct. engue is the
world's most important vector-borne viral disease. Several studies have
reported associations between dengue and climate; however, these
associations are not entirely consistent.
The spatial distribution, intensity oI transmission, and seasonality oI
malaria is inIluenced by climate in. RainIall can be a limiting Iactor Ior
mosquito populations and there is some evidence oI reductions in
transmission associated with decadal decreases in rainIall. The eIIects oI
observed climate change on the geographical distribution oI malaria and
its transmission intensity in highland regions remains controversial.
There is no clear evidence that malaria has been aIIected by climate
change in South America or in continental regions oI the Russian
Federation. There is still much uncertainty about the potential impact oI
climate change on malaria at local and global scales
Diarrhoeal diseases
With medium conIidence, ConIalonieri et al. concluded that climate
change would increase the burden oI diarrhoeal diseases.

Childhood mortality due to diarrhea in low-income countries, especially
in Sub-Saharan AIrica, remains high. Several studies have shown that
transmission oI enteric pathogens is higher during the rainy season.
Some studies have Iound that higher temperature was strongly
associated with increased episodes oI diarrhoeal disease in adults and
children in Peru. The WHO study, reIerred to earlier, projected that
climate change would increase the burden oI diarrhoeal diseases in low-
income regions by approximately 2 to 5 in 2020.
