We are students of C2 level in Maria Markaki school. At first, we published book reviews on this blog, which is why it used to be called 'Literature Blog', but all our latest posts have to do with the ECPE/ CPE exams. Thank you for dropping by!

Global warming effects
The consequences of global warming are difficult to predict, but certain effects seem likely:
On average, Earth will become warmer. Some regions may welcome warmer temperatures, but others may not.
Warmer conditions will probably lead to more evaporation and precipitation overall, but individual regions will vary, some becoming wetter and others dryer.
A stronger greenhouse effect will warm the oceans and partially melt glaciers and other ice, increasing sea level. Ocean water also will expand if it warms, contributing further to sea level rise.
Meanwhile, some crops and other plants may respond favorably to increased atmospheric CO2, growing more vigorously and using water more efficiently. At the same time, higher temperatures and shifting climate patterns may change the areas where crops grow best and affect the makeup of natural plant communities.
