Climate change is not going to happen alone. As our climate changes other global environmental problems are going to carry on occurring, such as habitat destruction, pollution, soil erosion and species extinctions. What we currently have very little understanding of is how all these things will interact in the future. Climate change may make some of these problems much worse and some of them may themselves contribute to climate change creating a feedback loop. This unit identifies several global change problems that may interact with climate change.
