Is global warming responsible for increased natural disasters?

    There is evidence supporting it. Melting glaciers have triggered avalanches, melting ice sheets have caused tsunamis and melting ice caps can adversely affect the earth’s crust creating pressure differences that could set off volcanic eruptions. Scientists are researching volcanic areas with diminishing ice sheets and glaciers like Chile to hypothesize the potentiality for these disasters.

    Research has shown that global warming may be responsible for extreme weather patterns, which in turn cause natural disasters. A report by the U.S. Climate Change Science Program states that there is strong evidence that global warming is the cause of an increased amount of extreme rain, heat, drought, and tropical storms. An increased amount of rainfall has been especially prevalent in the last few years. Increased rain means increased hurricanes and monsoons, which has caused devastating floods.
