Global Warming is a term almost everyone is familiar with. It is one of the biggest issues we are dealing with. In the upcoming years, global warming can affect us in many treacherous ways.
The first and foremost effect is polar ice caps melting. As the temperature increases, the ice at the North Pole will melt. Once the ice melts, the first effect will be a rise in sea levels because the melting glaciers become oceans. According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center “if the ice melted today the seas would rise about 230 feet”. It affects many low-lying areas such as the Netherlands.
