A few years ago I’ve been to the magnificent island of Mauritius. This week, I was asked to write about global warming and how it affects a country, I chose to write about Mauritius. Notice that I wrote the article for a college assignment before commenting. So, here it is.
Global warming is a serious issue. With each year passing by, the heat of the planet increases and more issues appear. These changes are dangerous and they effect everyone. But some countries are effected more than others. One of these countries is Mauritius, it’s an island located in the Indian Ocean. Mauritius will be severely effected by the climate change and might eventually disappear.
The climate change will have a massive impact on the planet. Ice caps will melt in the polars which will result in a rise in sea levels. Mauritius will suffer from the climate change because at first all the coral reefs will disappear and that will cause a significant decrease in tourism, and the island will eventually disappear because of the rising sea levels. Therefore, Mauritius will be effected both naturally and financially because of the global warming.
Global warming will also effect the temperature. The temperature all over Mauritius will increase dramatically and that will be extremely dangerous to both locals and tourists. The number of wildfires will increase and also there will be many casualties because of the heat and the wildfires.
The climate change will increase the number of natural disasters. Due to that, Mauritus will be more vulnerable to tsunamis and earthquakes. Because of that, a lot of people may die and the cities will be destroyed.
Mauritius is one of many islands all over the world that will suffer from the effects of global warming even though many of these islands haven’t participated in the increase of global warming. The world must act now and try to reduce pollution by any necessary means. After all, we are responsible of determining the future of our lives and the lives of our kids.
