Earth Day 2007 - Atlantic Reflection

    Newer Older

    In honor of Earth Day 2007, I'm posting some screen captures of the beautiful Earth as shown in the Orbiter space flight simulator. These are the optional high res (L10) Earth textures. This wide angle view is centered on the Atlantic between South America and Africa.

      Global warming is affecting many parts of the world. Global warming makes the sea rise, and when the sea rises, the water covers many low land islands. This is a big problem for many of the plants, animals, and people on islands. The water covers the plants and causes some of them to die. When they die, the animals lose a source of food, along with their habitat. Although animals have a better ability to adapt to what happens than plants do, they may die also. When the plants and animals die, people lose two sources of food, plant food and animal food. They may also lose their homes. As a result, they would also have to leave the area or die. This would be called a break in the food chain, or a chain reaction, one thing happening that leads to another and so on.
      The global warming will increase humidity in tropical deserts. Also the higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere trigger plant growth. As predicted, due to the global warming the sea levels will rise.
