    In the way of habitats, the countries bordering the north pole and the continent of Antarctica are suffering.  Ice packs have deviated greatly from past patterns, and animals that rely on these seasonal consistences for survival are dying.  If the major ice caps melt, sea levels will rise, displacing many people from coasts worldwide.  The relocation will stress economies and food sources.
