ABSTRACT
A part of the book "Earth in Danger: Climate Change," by Helen Orme is presented. It highlights the impact of global warming on the environment as scientists expect hurricanes to be more powerful and last longer due to the rise in atmospheric temperatures over the past 100 years. The environmental impacts include hotter temperatures in the summer, warmer temperatures in the winter, and the occurrence of major heat waves. The impacts of fossil fuels and more rainfall are tackled.
