Global warming and climate change are linked to an increase in global average temperatures. The rise in average international temperatures is said to be caused by national events and human activities. Increases in "greenhouse" gases such as carbonic acid gas, CH4, N2O, and CFCs are generally to blame. Climate change has an impact on all parts of the globe. The polar ice barriers are melting, and the ocean is rising as a result. Extreme weather and rain are becoming more prevalent in some areas, while others are experiencing droughts and increased waves of extreme heat. These impacts are expected to intensify among the approaching decades. Heating is projected to possess a range of effects on the oceans. These effects are projected to become more pronounced in the next decades. The oceans are expected to be affected in a variety of ways as a result of global warming. Rising ocean levels as a result of thermal development and melting of glaciers and ice sheets, as well as warming of the ocean surface, which results in higher temperature stratification, are ongoing effects. Another effect is altered ecosystems and habitats. As climatic patterns chop-chop shift, habitats on land and in the ocean are constantly shifting, making many species uncomfortable, while others move in and take over. In some situations, the entire strategy may be in jeopardy. Polar Bears may become extinct in the wild. If global warming continues at its current rate, the polar bear may become extinct in the wild. The animal is enamored with the ocean ice and uses it as a floating platform to gather prey. According to the consultants, the Arctic Ocean ice is melting at a rate of 11% each decade, putting the polar bear's ecosystem and existence in jeopardy.
