Global warming is when the temperature of the Earth increases. Even a small temperature increase affects the world globally.

Causes of the increased temperature are pollution from factories and cars. Results from global warming are high sea level. Higher temperatures on Earth cause glaciers to melt and make the sea level rise.

Climate change affects human health in many ways. Higher temperature will lead to more flooding and that will lead to diseases. Higher heat will increase the death rate, especially with the elderly.

Global warming will change the animal habitat. Animals and plants will shift their habitats to the north and to the mountains. Others will become extinct. This will cause competition with the animals and plants already living there.

We must protect Earth and prevent global warming from happening by taking better care of it.
