4 curiosities about global warming

Global warming

El current global warming it is one of the greatest threats humanity has faced for thousands of years. It is a problem, which paradoxically, we have aggravated and we are aggravating ourselves with our daily routine, whether it is using the car, deforesting or polluting.

Next I'm going to tell you 4 curiosities about global warming so that you can better understand how serious the situation is.


Thawing is one of the most dangerous effects of global warming, and not only because all that melted water goes into the sea, causing its level to rise, but also makes life very difficult for the animals that live in these ecosystems, like polar bears.

And as if that were not enough, when the ice melts the lifeless bodies are exposed, with which, Infectious Diseases Thought to be Extinct Could Reappear.


Thirteen of the fifteen most important cities in the world are located very few meters (and even centimeters) from sea level. Alexandria, California, New York, among others, have a very high risk of major flooding, which could be up to two meters according to NOAA.

Disappearance of lakes

Until now, 125 Arctic lakes have disappeared as an effect of global warming. And it is that the permafrost that was just below them has been melting, with which, the lakes were absorbed by the ground. The animals that live in these waters are at risk of becoming extinct.

Brown water

As the global mean temperature increases, lakes will start to have more organic matter, such as seaweed. As a consequence, the plants that live in the depths will begin to perish due to the lack of sunlight. In doing so, the animals that eat them will have to adapt and get used to eating other things if they want to survive.

Extreme drought

Global warming is a problem that affects us all. If we take care of the planet, its consequences are likely not so extreme.

    Who wrote this? He's not a meteorologist, is he? Not a climatologist, right? He will not have studied physics in his life nor will he have gone through any Faculty of Environmental Sciences. It does not surprise me that whoever does not have to know anything about this has the opinion that he does. Researchers must tell reality as it is, without adorning it with things that have not yet been proven, nor, in my opinion, can never be demonstrated. Many make up horror stories, of course, that maintains interest and thus safeguard their grants, like many NGOs, which took 150 million last year for absurd studies. But in Meteorologiaenlared? They should not go where they do not know, or at least say who signed the article, what their sources are or discover that it is a personal opinion, so we can delete it from our favorites.

      Hi Juanjo.
      You're right: the sources were missing. I just put them on.
      I'm sorry it was not of interest to you.
      A greeting.
