Global Warming is the term used to describe a gradual increase in the average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and its oceans. The scientists think this change is permanently changing the Earth's climate. In fact, scientists from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate, who conduct research on Global Warming, have recently predicted that the average temperatures on the Earth could rise by 1.4-5.8 Degrees Celsius by the year 2100.
Global Warming occurs when Carbon Dioxide and other air pollutants and Greenhouse gasses gather in the atmosphere and absorb sunlight and solar radiation that otherwise would bounce off the Earth's surface into the space. This causes for the heat to be trapped and make our planet to get hotter. This is known as the Greenhouse effect.
Global Warming has a significantly negative impact on the environment and wild life. Global Warming puts natural resources in jeopardy. Climate change is altering key habitat elements that are critical to wildlife's survival. Wildlife depends on healthy habitats. They need the right temperatures, fresh water, food sources, and places to raise their young.
Coyotes (Canis latrans)are found in all parts of the United States, except for Hawaii. Coyotes are also found in Mexico, Central America, and most of Canada.
The coyote population is spread throughout these areas. Coyotes can live in various habitats including plains, forests, mountains, and deserts. They can be found in rural, suburban, and even urban areas. Coyotes are known for how well they adapt to different habitats. The temperatures in the areas where coyotes can live vary from extreme cold like in Canada to very hot like in the Sonoran Desert. The vegetation and natural resources in coyotes' habitats vary as well.
