I definatly think that global warming will have a major effect on the people both physicaly and psychology because many places will start to flood more frequentlydue to an increase in water height due to the melting of the poles ice caps,also the extinction of some plants and animals that depend on a certain ecosystem or set ecological background,also the development and spreading of certain diseases and even skin cancerwhich may not have been prominent in some arears or countries,the rapid rise in tempretures of some areas.Therefore individuals will now have to start adapting themselves to different living conditions and adjusting themselves to how they carry out certain functions and also to be educated about the type of changes they are experiencing and how it can and will impact on there life therefore this will surly change they way we think as a people.

This is not a bad attempt at all Terrence. In truth and fact the environment does have a major effect on the cognitive development. The way we respond to the climate or even the temperature depends on how the brain mentally processes it. We do think about our feelings and how to react to each one individually. So if global warming should occur it would affect the way we think or act psychologically. If the heat increases or decreases (making the place extremely cold) then the cognitive processes would be disrupted. Individuals would be come lethargic, brain freeze, helpless and confused.There would be a lot of senselessness through the world.Doctor would not be able to focus their thoughts. Some individuals may even become violent and aggressive, they would displace a lot of mood swings. There are so many effect that global warming could have on the psychological aspect of it.
