We can summarize them as direct and indirect. The effects. The direct effects are as follows; With change, because the earth is getting warmer, we call them greenhouse gases because the heat brought to the earth by the sun and to the earth, because of the upper layers, they cannot go up. It collapses, then goes down. It directly affects human health. For example, extreme temperatures are rising. It is very hot during the day and very cold at night. Since our metabolism cannot adapt quickly to these extreme values, our metabolism problems. Are such as heat stroke, severe exposure to cold and related weather events that affect our lives.We are here.Also, if our underlying chronic There are diseases, but it is very difficult for our body to adapt to this extreme temperature.

Biodiversity is declining as temperatures rise. Water is getting polluted, soils are becoming saline. Unfortunately, we are waiting for epidemics with negative social effects. So these are significant risks. At the same time, we may be exposed to microorganisms that we do not know at all. These, in turn, could pose significant health risks in the future. Of course, climate change And is highly related to polluted air, which can have health consequences. The health effects of food shortages, the disappearance or depletion of clean water can be attributed to the indirect effects of global warming and climate change.
