The most important thing about a changing climate is that we can expect to see more and more abnormal weather events all over the world. <br />This may mean that while the ice caps and many mountain glaciers are melting, other places actually receive unusual amounts of snow and ice.<br />

Notas do Editor

  • Not just ice caps and coral reefs that will be affected by rising global temperatures - global warming threatens our economy in many ways as well. But one of the economic sectors where this has been most thoroughly studied happens to be the wine industry. Global warming is predicted to make many areas that rely heavily on wine vineyards, such as California and parts of southern Europe, much less hospitable to growing grapes for wine. In fact, researchers have predicted that a stunning 81% of all US wine country could be rendered much less hospitable to wine by higher temperatures and extreme weather events caused by global warming. These negative impacts on the wine industry represent just one of the best-understood examples of how global warming threatens our economy.
