How is Global Warming affecting people around the world?
I need to know how Global Warming affects people and countries around the world.
Any input would be greatly appreciated :-)

Floods,excessive heat,stronger storms,tornado's,ice melting in Antarctica,Polar bears declining and other species.Only god would know what his plans are for us.

you should first determine whether you are a believer of global warming, since it is only a theory, and has not shown to be a 'fact', then you should make certain that you can show convincing scientific studies that will confirm that 'global warming' is a fact, then, you must attempt to search through the data, using the scientific method, and determine what the cause might be....since it is a theory and not a proven scientific fact, you must then attempt to assign different potential problems and assets to the proposed theory, for example, people living in Labrado, if in fact GW is trye, might like being warmer, you never know...good luck, I hope this helps

Human use of coal, oil, and natural gas has not harmfully warmed the Earth, and the extrapolation of current trends shows that it will not do so in the foreseeable future. The CO2 produced does, however, accelerate the growth rates of plants and also permits plants to grow in drier regions. Animal life, which depends upon plants, also flourishes, and the diversity of plant and animal life is increased.
Human activities are producing part of the rise in CO2 in the atmosphere. Mankind is moving the carbon in coal, oil, and natural gas from below ground to the atmosphere, where it is available for conversion into living things. We are living in an increasingly lush environment of plants and animals as a result of this CO2 increase. Our children will therefore enjoy an Earth with far more plant and animal life than that with which we now are blessed.

Here is how it affects most people around the world.

The teaching of this lie is stealing food and life from millions of impoverished people all over the world today. If Jimmy Carter had not banned nuclear power and space based solar when he was president we would not be faced with war, poverty and starvation as the world is today. The greed of one man to enrich his oil company bosses made a poorer world for most of its population.

People are affected to the same extent today as they were thousands of years ago. Warmer climate results in flourishing life...... Cooler climate results in a harsher life.
Essentially, warmth means LIFE!

I am still looking around for the answer to that question-- when I find something I will let you know.
EDIT-- no floods, no dying polar bears, no stronger storms, no excessive heat--- every one of these is NOT true.

We all know, the earth is surrounded by a cover of gasses as atmosphere. This atmosphere allows most of the light to pass through, which reaches the surface of earth.
This light from sun is absorbed by the earth surface and converts into heat energy. This heat energy is re-emitted by the surface of the earth during night.
Due excessive presence of some gasses in the atmosphere, this escape of heat from earth surface is prevented, resulting in heating of earth called ‘global warming’.
The gasses which are responsible for causing global warming are called ‘greenhouse gasses’. Carbon dioxide is one of the most important greenhouse gases. This carbon dioxide mostly comes to atmosphere as air pollution from vehicles, coal-fired power plants and other industries burning fossil fuels. Human population increase and large scale deforestation are also responsible for carbon dioxide generation.
Thus, Global Warming adds energy to the Earth's biosphere.
The climate change which we are experiencing is due to global warming.
Heat is the fuel of weather systems. More heat, more extreme weather.
Energy drives the water cycle.
The more energy there is the faster the water cycle is driven and the more extreme the weather patterns become.
Each one degree rise in the temperature of the world's oceans is the equivalent to 1.4 BILLION one Megaton atom bombs; that is a lot of energy! This tremendous amount of devastating energy, generating because of our faulty creation “Global Warming” is responsible for the present climate change.
Thus, it shouldn't be surprising that the result is more extreme weather. More rain, more drought and more storms.
The harmful effects of presence of greenhouse gasses in atmosphere are global warming, climate change, ozone depletion, sea level rise, adverse effects on biodiversity, melting of polar glaciers etc.
Therefore, our prime responsibility is not to promote any industrialization which enhances carbon emission, rather than reduction.
Proper energy mix, which generates electricity without emission, is essential. In my view energy mix should include –
(a) substantial enhancement of Nuclear power for generation of electricity – as it is cleaner than coal;
(b) clean coal technology / green coal to be used for power generation;
(c) wherever possible tap hydro-power;
(d) substantial effort needed to enhance research and implementation for provision of generation of clean energy from renewable sources such as solar and wind.

Isn't this the second time you've asked this?
Ditto my first answer, though
