Perhaps the most well-known effect of climate change is temperature. Climate change causes global warming, where the average temperature of the earth rises. This happens because more gases in the atmosphere trap heat in the planet, which makes it too hot. This is known as the greenhouse effect. This global warming causes all of the effects on this page. That's because just a couple of degrees higher temperature throws off the earth's balance.
