Due to global climate change there has been both visible and invisible effects that our environment has faced. Whether it’s glaciers that have broken off into the oceans, temperature changes in different areas or plant and animal species in threat, things are happening rapidly to affect our environment. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has predicted that the effects of climate change will vary over time. The IPCC has also predicted that the global average temperature will increase 1.8 to 5.4 degrees Fahrenheit over the next few decades. In addition, more frequent wildfires, longer drought periods, increased drought periods, increase of tropical storm intensity and sea level rise are some other potential threats that different regions of the United States may be faced with in the future.
