Are you shocked that our environment is becoming an issue in the world today? Climate change which means there’s a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods raging form decades to million of years, is the main culprit in damaging our earths environment. Humans causes global warming by burning fossil fuels, coal, oil and gas cause global warming. Over the past 200 years carbon dioxide has been increasing and applied to the earths atmosphere. Humans are the ones who are causing the most damage to the earths environment, that movements are being made to put the mistake that humans are making to cause climate change (global warming) into perspective of how harmful the things humans do in their every day lives can and will effect the environment, this is so we can help to improve those affects.

There is no possible way to completely stop the use of fossil fuels entirely. Instead, there are positive ways energy sources, which could lower harmful carbon dioxide emission, which comes from the burning of fossil fuels and usage oils and gases, which would help slow down global warming and climate change. The burning of fossil fuels affects everyone and everything in the world by harming the environment and the earth’s atmosphere. If the human population doesn’t continue to find ways to help or to slow down global warming then the harmful effects on the environment will continue to get worse as time goes on, as it has done throughout the past years.
