Abstract
Human demand on earth ecosystem has increased many folds resulting in erratic climatic changes which may affect millions of people through water crises. On the other hand floods may lead to displacement of millions due to rising sea levels. Rise of sea levels will devastate agricultural and fishing activities. Increase in pests or vectors are major threat to human health with increasing environmental temperature. By 2050, crops yield could decreases by 30% in developing countries, health status will receive major setback because of increased deaths; due to heat waves, floods, drought etc. flood and drought will increase endemic morbidity and mortality due to diarrheas and spread of cholera. Global warming is not only causing trouble to the human beings but also to animals and plants. To embark upon these problems, some remedial steps must be timely taken which include but are not limited to the use of renewable sources of energy and stopping deforestation. Innovative solutions must be brought forward to end this hazard once and forever.
