Ten unnoticed effects of global warming

The scientists have recently presented the material on ten unnoticed effects of global warming. As you have most probably already noticed, the global warming results not only in melting of Arctic ices, it also brings fires to wild forests. Over the past several decades the countryside in the Western states of the USA has been severely damaged by more frequent, powerful and longer fires. With springs coming earlier and the snows melting earlier, forests have to come through longer draught periods.

Moreover, the mountains on our planet have been noticed to be growing steadily. The glaciers on the mountain tops, with immense masses of ice, slowed down the mountain growth. Now, as a result of the global warming, the glaciers started to thaw, and the rocks are growing faster with no considerable weight to push them down.
