Book Chapter
A chapter from the book "Water" is presented. It discusses how global warming is affecting water distribution on Earth. Scientists have confirmed that the increase of temperature on Earth and the rise of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are contributing factors to the current global warming condition. The chapter notes that continued global warming will result in more unpredictable weather in different parts of the world, animal relocation due to shifting temperatures, and crop failure.
