Global warming is a gradual increase in the temperatures by a few degrees due to the increasing concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere leading to an increase in the volume of water which is contributing to sea-level rise. There are numerous effects of global warming but some of the deadliest effects of global warming are the spread of plague and diseases in the northern countries as disease carrying insects are migrating north. There is also a risk of more frequent and stronger hurricanes as the temperature of oceans rises .This will also have economical consequences as it costs billions of dollars to recover from the aftermath of such calamities. As a result of global warming Europe and especially Africa are expected to suffer severe draughts. In Africa, Water is already a dangerously rare commodity global warming will worsen the condition and according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change this could lead to conflicts and war.
