    1. Person to person. Infectious diseases commonly spread through the direct transfer of bacteria, viruses or other germs from one person to another. This can happen when an individual with the bacterium or virus touches, kisses, or coughs or sneezes on someone who isn’t infected.
    2. Global warming is the primary cause of current sea level rise
    3. Most climate change experts agree that greenhouse gases ― which trap heat and prevent it from leaving the Earth’s atmosphere ― are mostly responsible for the temperature spike. … Even with a worldwide emphasis on reduced greenhouse emissions, temperatures continue to climb.
    4. Increased human consumption. Overuse and wastage of water. A global rise in freshwater demand. Overuse of aquifers and its consequent slow recharge.
    5. Human activities are at the root of this phenomenon. Specifically, since the industrial revolution, carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions have raised temperatures, even higher in the poles, and as a result, glaciers are rapidly melting, calving off into the sea and retreating on land.
    6. Each extreme event, however, has a host of possible natural and anthropogenic causes in addition to anthropogenic climate change. Examples of natural causes include large-scale circulation, internal modes of climate variability, and some aerosol effects (e.g., marine aerosol, stratospheric and volcanic aerosol).
    7. Decrease in potential yields is likely to be caused by shortening of the growing period, decrease in water availability and poor vernalization. In the long run, the climatic change could affect agriculture in several ways: productivity, in terms of quantity and quality of crops.
    8. Land: (a) Roadways, (b) Railways, (c) Pipelines … Find suitable reasons for the growing importance of road transport in relation to rail … is also used as a feeder to other modes of transport such as they provide a link
