    First we must understand global warming. Global warming, the gradual increase in Earth’s average temperature, brings about several profound consequences. As temperatures rise, extreme weather events like heatwaves become more frequent, impacting communities worldwide. Melting ice caps and glaciers contribute to rising sea levels, posing a threat to coastal areas. This warming climate intensifies hurricanes, droughts, floods, and wildfires, affecting ecosystems and human settlements. Ocean acidification, resulting from increased carbon dioxide absorption, harms marine life, particularly coral reefs. The interconnected impacts also lead to biodiversity loss as species struggle to adapt to changing environments. To combat global warming, it’s crucial to reduce our carbon footprint through energy-efficient practices and the use of renewable energy sources. Preserving forests, adopting sustainable transportation, reducing waste, conserving water, and spreading awareness about climate change are vital steps toward a more sustainable future. The below videos explain it in a fun intersting way. [National Geographic – Climate Change 101](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JG3OZGKPGE8) and [TED-Ed – The Effects of Climate Change](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2D7hZpIYlCA) These are excellent starting points for informative and visually engaging content.
