Believe it or not the earth is warming up. The warm air feels good to us but it is harming many regions of the earth. It is especially harming the arctic regions. What happens in the arctic due to global warming will affect all of us.

Let's say you have a glass of water with ice in it. If you leave the glass in a warm area the ice will melt. When the ice melts you will notice that the water level is slightly higher than before.

Leah Scott: nice pictures, the connection you made with the glass of ice water made it more understandable
Let's say you have an ocean full of water with many giant icebergs and glaciers in it. If the air around it gets too warm then the ice will melt. You will notice that the sea levels are a lot higher than before.

According to this web site >
The rise of sea levels will cause floods. In class we saw a video and it said that soon the whole state of Florida and many other coastal cities will be under water. This could lead to migration to other parts of the world. Then things will get a little crowded.

Linhda Ta: The pictures you used to connect the information is great and the links you gave make your information seem much more professional and knowledgable.
Nature is not the only thing that is being affected by global warming. Polar bears live in the arctic where the ice is melting. Since the ice is melting, it makes it hard to hunt. This leads to cannibalism. If polar bears can't hunt, then some will die. There are not alot of polar bears left. The polar bears are endangered.
Polar bears have to be a ceratin wieght to reproduce. But since there is not alot of food, it is harder for them to make babies. This also makes it less likely for cubs to survive. That is another reason that there is not alot of polar bears around.
There is hope for the future. Polar bears have adapted to weather changes before and they probably will again.
