September Volume 25 Number 3. Many people believe that human-caused emissions of greenhouse gases will lead to higher temperatures and increased precipitation during the 21st century. Similarly, it is thought that these changes may have an impact on economic well-being.
The United Nations has been studying climate change and working to combat its effects since the first Earth Summit in We've heard the dire warnings—even if we have yet to heed them—but could there possibly be any advantages to climate change, and if so, could these upsides possibly outweigh the downsides? The short answer is no.
Is There Any Upside to Global Warming?
Although there are many negative effects of climate change, there are some advantages too. The Arctic, Antarctic, Siberia and other frozen regions of the Earth may experience more plant growth and milder climates. The next ice age may be prevented from occurring. Many scientists believe that the planet is due to enter the next ice age and enhanced global warming will prevent this. The Northwest Passage through Canada's formerly icy north will be opened up to sea transportation.

According to the National Climate Assessment, human influences are the number one cause of global warming, especially the carbon pollution we cause by burning fossil fuels and the pollution-capturing we prevent by destroying forests. The carbon dioxide, methane, soot, and other pollutants we release into the atmosphere act like a blanket, trapping the sun's heat and causing the planet to warm. This warming is altering the earth's climate system, including its land, atmosphere, oceans, and ice, in far-reaching ways. Higher temperatures are worsening many types of disasters, including storms, heat waves, floods, and droughts.
Climate change is one of the most urgent issues of our day. Several recent studies show that acting quickly and decisively to address this challenge and shift our economy to clean energy will bring significant benefits to the United States—while also helping us avoid some of the worst consequences of unchecked global warming. Congress has begun the historic process of enacting legislation to reduce global warming emissions and transition the United States to a clean energy economy. To be most effective, such legislation should. Below are 10 reasons for strong action to promote clean energy and curb climate change. Every region in the United States is already experiencing the costly effects of climate change—including coastal areas threatened by rising sea levels and more intense hurricanes; Midwest farmlands facing more crop-damaging heat waves, pests, and flooding; and communities in the West and Southwest experiencing drought and wildfires. Action to sharply reduce our global warming emissions can greatly curtail the costs of climate change, especially over the longer term.

Research has also evaluated actions that could be taken—and in some cases are already being taken—to limit the magnitude of future climate change and adapt to its impacts. In the United States, a series of reports by the U. Internationally, scientific information about climate change is periodically assessed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCC , most recently in Much has been learned, and this knowledge base is continuously being updated and expanded with new research results.
Advantages of climate change o Prevents ice age Ice age is the period in which the temperature drops to an extent that life becomes extremely difficult on Earth. It is believed that there has been five ice ages till date with regular warmer intervals. The climate change we experience now is a result of global warming where the temperature of the planet is gradually increasing. This could prevent the next ice age from happening. These places are covered with ice with no traces of plant growth. But with the changing climate, it is hoped that these places will have milder climates in the coming years. Chances of vegetation are also not less.
