ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the effects of global warming on the earth surface. According to the studies published in one journal in March 2006, the warming temperatures are likely to cause a catastrophic, long-term meltdown on the roof of the world in Greenland and in Antarctica. As per the comments given by the scientists, there is only a decade left to reduce the emissions and avoid a nightmare scenario that would flood not only below-sea-level New Orleans, but also much of South Florida and the Outer Banks of North Carolina, as well as the California coast. According to the International climate scientists banded together in the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the average global temperature will rise by three to ten degrees Fahrenheit by the and of this century. The public is only beginning to wake up to the reality of climate change. According to the most recent Gallup Poll, a record 57 percent of Americans now believe that the climate change is underway, but only 36 percent say that the worry about it is a great deal.
