1. Causes

1.1. global warming

1.1.1. ice albedo feedback loop

1.1.1.1. as ice melts the earth heats up which then increases the rate of melting ice

1.1.2. melting of ice

1.1.2.1. ice reflects sunlight and so if it melts the earth heats up quicker

1.1.3. increase in tree growth

1.1.3.1. trees absorb lots of sunlight which increases the temperature

1.1.4. increased solar output

1.1.4.1. increases the temperature

1.1.5. cows

1.1.5.1. they fart!!

2. Importance

2.1. economical drain

2.1.1. lost of money has to be spent on reasearch.

2.1.2. money speant on new technologies to save cows

2.1.3. houses and environment in need of repair.

2.2. loss of ice and snow

2.2.1. speeds up global warming

2.2.2. increases sea levels

3. Effects

3.1. negative

3.1.1. ecological

3.1.1.1. tree's fall down due to melting of perma frost which destoys habitats for many animals e.g. cows

3.1.1.2. habitats are destroy for lots of animals e.g cows

3.1.1.3. cows become extinct

3.1.2. human

3.1.2.1. people have to move due to unsafe lan.

3.1.3. physical

3.1.3.1. loss of land due to melting ice and storm erosion.

3.1.3.2. perma frost is melting

3.1.3.3. less of the sun light is reflected

3.2. positive

3.2.1. ecological

3.2.1.1. more trees grow

3.2.2. human

3.2.2.1. more habbital land for cows

3.2.2.2. more shipping routs have opened up
