How Global Warming is Affecting the Wildlife of the World

Many people harbor the misconception that global warming means that our atmosphere is getting hotter. This is not entirely true.

In addition, stormy seasons may last longer and produce more severe weather. Rains could be torrential and hurricanes or tornadoes may begin to cover a greater distance.
