Is Climate Change a prelude to next glacial period? by City-Tech Blogger Huang Huang

Global climate change is not only due to human activity. The involvement of humans has aggravated such changes. In fact, the earth’s ecology has the ability to purify and regenerate without the influence of humans. It is not that nature is retaliating against humans; on the contrary, this is a natural process. The Earth is self-correcting because of the environmental destruction. So, did humans have anything to do with the previous ice age? The current climate anomaly is generally an active cycle of the earth’s weather conditions. In response, the earth’s crust is also active resulting in extremely cold and warm climates, changes in geomagnetism, and volcanic activity. I have always believed this climate is a prelude to the Earth entering into the next glacial period, so after It has completed its self-purification, we will usher into a plateau and an era of biological prosperity.  As to when the ice age will come, it is still unknown.

It is crucial we focus on how we will be affected right now. With that in mind, the temperature and precipitation during the year is the main factor that determines which crops to plant, so changes in these determinants will not only affect crops but its distribution. Global warming will also have an impact on Health conditions. Human health depends on a balanced ecological environment. If not, there will be an increase in morbidity and mortality rates, as well as a rise in infectious diseases such as malaria, lymphatic filariasis, schistosomiasis, hookworm disease, cholera, meningitis, kala-azar, and dengue fever. This is a problem for countries with a tropical climate. Besides, the impact of disasters likes the lack of drinking water, less food production, and epidemic diseases. The Earth will face more extreme weather events, such as droughts, heat waves, and storm floods. For coastal areas, super typhoons, storm surges will have a big impact. Climate change will also cause oases to disappear too.
