Impacts of Climate Change

 

Introduction

The topic Impacts of Climate Change describes the various impacts of climate change on different sectors and regions of the world. Increasing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases are projected to lead to regional and global changes in temperature, precipitation, and other climate variables - resulting in global changes in soil moisture, an increase in global mean sea level, and increasing the frequency and intensity of more severe extreme events such as extremes of temperature and precipitation floods, droughts, cyclones, and so on, in some places (IPCC, 2007).
