Global Warming Quiz Question 2

Answer: d) All of the Above 
According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), warmer atmospheric temperatures are increasing the severity and frequency of extreme precipitation, meaning more floods and more snowstorms when the weather is cold enough. Additionally, more droughts and higher temps are fueling an increase in wildfires, especially in the American West.                          

 

 

2.  As the globe warms, crop yields will:

  1. Increase overall as colder places like Canada become more arable.
  2. Increase overall, since plants consume carbon dioxide.
  3. Decrease overall as weather extremes harm crops around the globe.
  4. Stay about the same, with increases in colder regions and decreases in warmer regions.
