Climate change is a phenomenon that the distribution of weather around the world is changing with respect to time. But due to increased human activity, the natural way is being disturbed. The global warming due to greenhouse gases is one of the main causes of climate change. 

The significant impact of the environment mainly focuses on the survival of organisms and changes on the earth's physical structure. Due to changes of temperature, organisms including animals and plants need to adapt the certain changes. Migration of birds and fishes occur but if they fail to find suitable places, they die. Polar caps slowly melt thus increasing the water level. As the temperature changes, the wind current direction is also changing. As the wind current changes, weather on a particular area will be affected. For example, months of rainy season will move in tropical areas.

The impact on technology is on the changes of current usage of energy because of the change in the weather for a particular area. There will be increased demand for cooling during summer and decreased demand for warming during winter. Industries located on low areas should start thinking about relocation because the water level is continuously rising.
