What effects does it have on the earth and its inhabitants? We're partnering with African entrepreneurs to launch clean energy projects. I want to commend President Hollande and Secretary General Ban for their leadership and for hosting such a successful summit, and French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius for presiding with patience and resolve. So nobody can stand on the sidelines on this issues. Last year, I issued America's first Climate Action Plan to double down on our efforts. We waste less energy, which saves you money at the pump and in your pocketbooks.
Last year, temperatures in some areas of the ocean reached record highs, and ice in the Arctic shrank to its smallest size on record—faster than most models had predicted it would. Scientists support climate change is happening with hard scientific evidence whereas the people who oppose climate change have evidence which is mainly opinion-based. Taken together, these steps represent an historic recognition on behalf of the American people and their government. Warmer climate may affect our water supplies, agriculture, natural environment as well as our own health and safety. Climate change is real and we need to take some really drastic change to reverse the effects.
Here are the main points for a speech about the impact of climate change. It's going to take time for carbon emissions to stabilize. The fuel standards we set over the past few years mean that by the middle of the next decade, the cars and trucks we buy will go twice as far on a gallon of gas. And, my fellow leaders, accepting this challenge will not reward us with moments of victory that are clear or quick. This is something that President Xi of China and I have worked on together. The United States has made ambitious investments in clean energy, and ambitious reductions in our carbon emissions.
Cities and livelihood that have taken form on the coastal areas have already been largely affected by the drastic climate change. The release of various green house gases in the atmosphere by many natural means and human activities causes increase in atmospheric temperature because such gases have capability to absorb all the heat of environment from sun, burning coal, etc. Climate change has had a major impact in Asia. Among various other reasons, factories releasing pollutant substances and waste products are the major contributor of this destruction. But at the time when we passed the Clean Air Act to try to get rid of some of this smog, some of the same doomsayers were saying new pollution standards will decimate the auto industry.
The rate in increasing global temperature is because of the increasing emissions of heat-trapping gases called green house gases in the atmosphere. Through trapping sunlight, temperatures have risen over the past years thus being called climate change. Over the past eight years, the United States has reduced our total carbon pollution by more than any other nation on Earth. But the climate we have come to expect is not what it used to be. There are a few climatic changes that are unavoidable and nothing can be done about them.
Each month is becoming warmer than ever which we can feel very clearly. A hurricane left parts of this great city dark and underwater. Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations insolar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic eruptions. It is a new era. Attention Getter: Over half of the waste that ends up in the landfill does not belong there because it could have been recycled or reused. Some parts of Asia and Africa have experienced more frequent and intense droughts in recent decades.
We are here to discuss one of the most important natural factors essential for all living things specifically; i. More powerful storms and floods threaten every continent. Not simply an agreement to roll back the pollution we put into our skies, but an agreement that helps us lift people from poverty without condemning the next generation to a planet that's beyond its capacity to repair. Maize, wheat and other major crops have experienced significant yield reductions at the global level of 40 megatons per year between 1981 and 2002 due to a warmer climate. We doubled the mileage our cars will get on a gallon of gas by the middle of the next decade. Now more than ever is the time for students across the country to become global warming activists and join the movement. Climate change is a long-term shift in the statistics of the weather including its averages.
It means there are no left sources to send heat back to the space and all are getting collected in the earth atmosphere and affecting the climate. It is good to be back on campus, and it is a great privilege to speak from the steps of this historic hall that welcomed Presidents going back to George Washington. Global temperatures have been increasing in recent years and it is clear that our climate is changing. A buzz spreading around the world that has been known for decades but has recently bloomed into a rather controversial topic. For example, it could show up as a change in climate normal expected average values for temperature and precipitation Abstract: Climate is inherently variable. What are some possible solutions? The Summit will focus on the heart of the problem — the sectors that create the most emissions and the areas where building resilience could make the biggest difference — as well as provide leaders and partners the opportunity to demonstrate real climate action and showcase their ambition. It does not seem to us a big deal that we travel in our personal vehicles, we burn crackers on weddings and festivals, throw our wastes in rivers and streets, burn the wastes, cut trees, leave our lights turned on even when not required, specifically have our air conditioners switched on the entire day during summers.
Climate change occurs when atmospheric temperatures increase a lot which in turn causes many different changes to the earth such as more floods, intense rain, droughts, increase in rate of more frequent and severe heat waves, increase level of oceans, melting glaciers, warming oceans, sea water becoming more acidic, and so many. These changes are such that they result in more floods, massive droughts, intense rain, as well as more frequent and severe heat waves; just like it is today. Though the major impact on climate is of the natural factors but nevertheless human efforts for the same can be evaded. Coming from the rise of Greenhouse Gas emissions and changing temperature caused human developments, world leaders and organisations are working on ways to combat the problem. Climate itself adjusts time to time however going at wrong path since many years because of regular loss of huge ice sheets. Fossil fuel burning accounts for 75% of the total global energy use Ciserone, 2000, p. The requirement of school uniforms can cause more problems than they solve ranging.
The sawgrass prairies and mangrove forests are home to an incredible diversity of wildlife -- bald eagles, herons, hundreds of plant species, from pine trees to wild orchids. Once a change has been detected it is important to attribute that change to some cause. Do you remember those days when the weather used to be hot or cold but not extremely hot or negligibly cold? Climate patterns play a significant role in shaping natural ecosystems, and human economies that depends on them. Our children deserve such ambition. This may not seem like much, but many scientists agree that the earth's temperatures are starting to increase at a faster rate.
