Global Warming   refers to the rising average temperature of   Earth's atmosphere. An increase in global temperature will cause sea levels to rise and will change the amount and pattern of precipitation, and a probable expansion of subtropical deserts. Warming is expected to be strongest in the Arctic and would be associated with continuing retreat of glaciers, permafrost and sea ice. Other likely effects of the warming include more frequent occurrence of extreme weather events including heatwaves, droughts and heavy rainfall events, species extinctions due to shifting temperature regimes, and changes in agricultural yields. Warming and related changes will vary from region to region around the globe, with projections being more robust in some areas than others .
Consequently, glaciers are melting, cloud forests are drying, sea levels are constantly rising and wildlife is trying to keep up with all these changes that affect directly on...
