Effects of global warming

By Ricky Ortell

Due to global warming the ozone layer is being destroyed and the sun's heat on Earth has gone higher.

When the suns heat went higher it melted the ice caps in the North Pole and caused the sea to rise and the polar bears to lose there homes — resulting in them having to find new little places to live. When the factories burn coal to make energy, they cause green house gasses to go into the air.

Because gases and most coals are used so often, these recourses are doing damage to the environment. Since the water has risen it might just cover Robben Island with water in maybe 12 or 15 years, making only Table Mountain an island to live on if we do nothing about it now!
