One may ask how the Greenhouse Effect is so detrimental to the environment. The burning of fossil fuels expels extra greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. The most abundant gas released from this process is Carbon Dioxide. When Carbon Dioxide levels are high, this in turn causes the temperature to rise causing many different things to happen, such as the melting of the polar ice caps. Should the polar ice caps melt, this would not only wash out many different ecosystems from the excess water on land, but it would also release a great deal of Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere that had been trapped in the ice caps.
And the reason behind this is the use of fossil fuels. C02 which is also an important constituent of environment is causing a warming effect on the earth’s surface. But where is so much of CO2 coming from? Fossil fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas are being burned to provide energy. Ken Caldeira (2012) in his article “The Great Climate Experiment” talks about how Co2 is being released in the atmosphere (p. 80).
Carbon dioxide is also a big absorber of the sun?s heat rays. Humans can cause a lot of carbon dioxide to be released. Every time we burn fossil fuels, we release more carbon dioxide. Emissions from cars also increase the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. If there is more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere more rays from the sun are absorbed.
Global Warming causes rising sea level from glacier melting, unusual weather, increased temperature, droughts and floods, changes in ocean currents and climate shifts. I believe that global warming is the human fault because humans create more pollution by burning fossil fuels, expanding the greenhouse gases and cutting down and burning trees also release carbon dioxide. Releasing such gases into the atmosphere not only effects the atmosphere itself but also effects the entire earth and its population. Global Warming is the increase of Earth's average surface temperature due to effect of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels or from deforestation, which trap heat that would otherwise escape from Earth. This is a type of greenhouse effect.
Human activities cause the greenhouse gases to accumulate in the atmosphere, and cause an increase in the global warming. The main gas that causes global warming is Carbon Dioxide, which is produced by vehicles and Industrial operations. Also, there are some more gases that cause global warming such as Methane, Nitrous Oxide, and Fluorinated Gases. The increase in the planet temperature can make huge changes in the geological composition and the water surface in the planet. Some of the effects that global warming might causes are floods, melting the ice caps, and hurricanes.
Global warming is a major threat to the planet. It is agreed that humans have caused most of the past century's warming by releasing greenhouse gasses, as we power our electronic lives. The “greenhouse effect” is performed when the gasses let out into Earth’s atmosphere trap heat from the sun. Through the burning of fossil fuels, humans are enhancing the greenhouse effect and increasing the temperatures of the planet. Although the greenhouse effect is what keeps the planet warm, thereby supporting life, too much would also result in severe issues.
This can replace fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are also used to produce electricity for people’s houses and they are found deep within the earth . Even though they are used to produce electricity, they havea devastating effect on the earth’s atmosphere and the environment because when they are being used they release carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide other gases. This causes global warming; global warming is when greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane and other greenhouse gases are found too much in the atmosphere and trap heat as the atmosphere. It causes earth’s atmosphere to get warmer not only that but also raises earth’s surface temperature to rise as well.This can raise the percentage of cancer rate per urban populati... ... middle of paper ... ...eothermal energy is heat from the earth this means that you have to dig out the heat that’s in the earth.
Although humans play the biggest role in global warming, there are other aspects that help influence it. The greenhouse effect is the process in which the earth’s atmosphere traps heat coming from the sun making the Earth warm but because humans burn fossil fuels and cut trees, the concentration of heat on the Earth increases due to abnormal levels of gases. Carbon dioxide, as well as methane, nitrous oxide, and water vapor are greenhouse gases that occur naturally in the atmosphere (Schneider, 2008). Together all these gases keep the Earth warm. When the levels of concentrations of these gases increase it disturbs climatic conditions causing the Earth to be warmer than usual.
Global warming is caused by many things but the most common way is electrical pollution. While greenhouse gases occur naturally and keep the planet warm enough to sustain life, the excess gases produced by humans through industrial by products trap extra heat and retain it in the atmosphere. According to Larry West, “Scientists have determined that a number of human activities are contributing to global warming by adding excessive amounts of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. Greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide accumulate in the atmosphere and t...
The Enhanced Greenhouse Effect For the past ten thousand years the earth’s climate has been extremely good and beneficial to mankind. Today however , major changes are taking place. Humans beings are changing the face of the entire planet by destroying the rain forests and pumping our pollutants into the air and water. Some of these gases are very toxic and they are destroying our ozone layers which allows life to exist on earth These things are changing the make-up of the earth’s biosphere and its heat balance in a very negative way. Global Warming is an increase in the earth’s temperature due to the use of fossil fuels and other industrial processes, leading to a buildup of green house gasses.
