Can someone list examples of ecological/environmental, social/economic and political effects of climate change?

Answer 1

The major items you need to consider here are:
1) Land and Agriculture fate under Climate Change (CC)
2) Water - rivers, lakes and their fate under CC
3) Air - quality and its impact on health and Fauna and Flora
4) Health - impact of CC on health on Human Population
5) War and Peace - Impact of Water on Geopolitics and War and Peace

Social Economic: 1. Small farmers will be most affected, especially in poor areas; 2. The poor in rural and urban areas will be hardest hit (think of Katrina in New Orleans); 3. Developing countries' unequal capacity to adopt: Developing countries that did not significantly contribute to the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere will now be at a greater disadvantage when it comes to dealing with the effects of climate change due to a lack of resources and budget; 4. Women, children, and the elderly will be even more vulnerable: In developing countries' rural areas, women and children are often responsible for gathering firewood and water, but as supplies decrease, they must frequently travel longer distances to find these resources, which means they will have more work to do and less time for other duties.

Ecological/Environmental: 1) Air and Water Quality Impact: Reduced river flows and higher water temperatures will result in lower air quality. 2) Ozone and smog concentrations will rise with higher air temperatures and growing energy use. 3) Smoke from fires and dust from dry, arid landscapes will raise particulate concentrations that affect health - Asthma, Cancer, etc. 4) Water Scarcity: Climate change is reducing precipitation, and these declines are projected to continue. 5) Runoff in river systems that Nations water supply depend on for direct use and for groundwater recharge will decline, exacerbating already apparent water supply shortages. 6) River systems are already overstretched and will not be able to meet future demand. 7) This will

This is enough to get you points. Take this and expand on it.

Answer 2

Ecological/Environmental Effects:

  1. Rising sea levels
  2. Increased frequency and intensity of extreme weather events
  3. Loss of biodiversity and habitat disruption
  4. Ocean acidification
  5. Shifts in ecosystems and migration patterns

Social/Economic Effects:

  1. Threats to food security and agriculture
  2. Water scarcity and reduced availability
  3. Increased frequency of natural disasters leading to economic losses
  4. Displacement of communities due to extreme weather events
  5. Health impacts, including the spread of diseases

Political Effects:

  1. Strain on international relations due to resource competition
  2. Migration-related conflicts and refugee crises
  3. Disputes over territorial changes caused by melting ice caps
  4. Calls for policy changes and international cooperation to mitigate climate change
  5. The potential for increased political instability in vulnerable regions.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
