Global warming, in other words climate change, is the worldwide problem. However, seniors are interested in such a topic and having discussion about it. This study text describes how climate change affects animals, drinking water and nature.
Our planet is warmer now than before. People sometimes call it global warming, but scientists1 call it climate change.
Climate change creates not only high temperature, but sometimes even floods and fires. People create too much CO2, which goes to the atmosphere2 of our planet.
Even in places like Greenland ice is melting3 fast, which is bad for polar bear. Other animals, for example butterflies4, now live in colder regions. And mosquitos5, which carry6 malaria, are now living even in Europe.
There are problems with water in many different countries, because there is not enough7 drinking water.
Climate change exists also in the Czech Republic. There is less water here now, and a lot of trees in our forests are dying, because there is not enough humidity8 in the air. Climate change also creates problems with bark beetle, for example in Šumava.
