Scientist reported on Friday that 2014 was the hottest year in history since such record-keeping began in 1880, according to New York Times. The hottest temperature last year had fueled many global extremes, such as extreme heat in unusual places like Alaska and violent typhoons triggered by unusually heated oceans such as the Pacific Ocean.
According to the climatologist, this is due to global warming as a result of continuous emission of hydrocarbons which may have profound impact on human and the environment. It also has long-term risk to the ecosystem where many stressed fauna and flora may go to extinction due to the extreme heat.
It is also well-known that the greenhouse effect have deleterious consequences on the ecosystem and environment and if the pace of industrialization continues at the pace we are currently experiencing, then our posterity in the future would have to pay the price of the actions we are making today.
