According to NASA, 'potential future effects of global climate change include more frequent wildfires, longer periods of drought in some regions and an increase in the number, duration and intensity of tropical storms.'
Wait, that sounds like right now, not the potential future, right? Yeah, definitely. What gives? Well, basically, all of these things will continue to happen, becoming more and more extreme. So if you think droughts and hurricanes, and cold snaps and heat waves seem intense right now, just wait a decade or 2.
More frequent hurricanes? Check.
“Seems like most of these effects are already happening.”
The atmosphere is what keeps all of the stuff on Earth that's not nailed down from flying off into space. Okay, that's not entirely true, gravity helps with that. But our atmosphere is very important too!
