2.2.2.1.1. Rise in sea levels

2.2.3. Ecological

2.2.3.1. More vegetation so then more food for parasites and an increase in the Albedo effect

3. Causes

3.1. The Sun

3.2. Less Ice, so an increase in the Albedo effect

3.2.1. The Ice reflects 85-90% of the suns rays.

3.3. Industrial BOOM caused Earth to warm about 0.5°C

4. What is the Albedo effect?

4.1. The Albedo Loop
