The entire neighborhood in Queens was destroyed by a fire.
Hollywood was strengthened by global warming, but in a statistical sense.
A warmer atmosphere makes it easier for a Hurricane to dump water onto land.
Sandy's energy came from a blocking pattern in the jet stream.
There was a storm surge that caused Hialeah.
Seven years before Sandy, the United States was hit by a 1-ft rise storm.
Outside of New 4-ft rise Orleans, the marsh of the Mississippi River delta is going to disappear as rising seas eat away at the coastal vegeta Key Biscayne tion.
Since 1940, more than 2.5 million hectares of Louisiana's coastal wetlands have vanished.
The areas of the Miami region which are below sea level are protected by levees and would be flooded by rises in sea level of 1-6 feet.
Greenland's ice is melting at an accelerated rate because of acidifying oceans.
Sea levels will rise more quickly than predicted if polar marine life melting continues.
Many researchers are predicting that the oceans will absorb more CO as carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere rise.
Americans live within a meter of the high tide line.
Ocean acidification is threatening marine animals with an average loss of 9% of their land area.
The lion people, 1.3 million homes, and 1.8 million acres are vul of calcium carbonate.
According to experts with the Surging Seas project, carbonate ion and calcium carbon become less available as seawater becomes more acidic.
Half of the population in some South Florida towns is at risk of dissolving.
Global ocean chemistry has already decreased by 0.1 need to invest in costly efforts to protect against high tides and pH unit, which correspond to a 26% rise in acidity.
If we don't cut greenhouse ion concentration.
Sea levels will keep rising and initial impacts on corals are appar gas emissions.
If we burn all of the fossil fuels remaining in the world, oysters in Washington and Oregon will be wiped out, and the atmosphere will be so hot that it will melt the ice on Antarctica.
Scientists predict that raising sea levels by about a foot will result in a decline in the pH of the sea.
Most of our planet's coral would be destroyed if the world's ice melted.
This would make the entire state of Florida reefs.
It could be catastrophic for under water, along with the rest of the Eastern Seaboard, because there are so many organs and the Gulf Coast.
California's ocean acidification and the potential loss of marine life in the Central Valley would threaten to become one of the most far-reaching impacts of becoming an inland sea.
Warmer waters contribute to deadly coral bleach Center of purple finch's winter range ing, and stronger storms damage reefs.
South of Miami in the Florida Keys, coral reefs provide habitat for fish consumed locally and exported for profit, offer snorkeling and scuba diving sites for tourism, and protect coastlines from erosion by reducing wave intensity.
There are consequences for living things.
Organisms are affected by changes to their environments.
Global warming is changing biological phenomena that rely on temperature.
Plants are leafing out earlier, insects are hatching earlier, birds are moving earlier, and animals are breeding earlier in the spring.
mismatches can be created in seasonal timing by these shifts.
There are a lot of kias.
The birds from the mountains have been unable to adapt, so fewer young birds are being forced upward.
As many as 20% of all plant and American bird species have shifted their winter ranges, which could lead to extinction.
According to an analysis of Christmas Bird Count data by the National Audubon Society, trees may not be able to northward in the past 40 years.
It is possible that rare species may be ers.
Montane animals can't survive.
Effects on plant communities make up an important peared from mountains.
Climate change affects society in a negative way.
If climate change reduces plant growth, then carbon dioxide could increase in a process of positive feedback on the lives and livelihoods of millions of people.
In regions where precipitation and stream flow erate warming may slightly increase production, it's because erosion and flooding could alter growing seasons.
Lakes, ponds, wetlands, and streams will shrink in regions where precipitation decreases.
The effects seem to be mixed.
When we get more carbon dioxide, crops can become less to diminish the services and goods that we need.
Perhaps societies are dependent.
In 2012 when the U.S. government declared 1000 of the country's counties to be disaster areas due to the lack of rain, it was a common sight.
Social and political strains on European nations receiving refugees are caused by the flow of refugees.
