Abstract

The analysis of temperature data obtained from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) database showed that each of the last 13 years was one of the warmest years for the last several thousand years in the temperature record. In this study, it was observed that the changes in the weather parameters such as temperature, humidity, wind etc., due to increase in greenhouse gases, adversely affect human health and environment. Consequently, posing challenges to the health of humans and environment. The affected environments are extreme events, storm, crop failure, flood, etc., which manifested in diseases such as malnutrition, diarrhea, malaria, respiratory diseases, heart attacks etc.
