If we stop all Green House Gas Emissions, will global climate change stop?

Introduction - What is Global Warming and how it works

Ever since the Industrial Revolution in 1700, Green House Gas Emissions increased drastically. Up until now, these gases have changed Earth’s climate, making it hotter every year. This is called global warming and it became a problem. Earth’s temperature has increased by 0.85 Degrees Celsius from the year 1880 to 2012.

If this goes on, the Earth will suffer from increased natural disasters, animals unable to adapt to the weather and die out, ice caps from the poles will melt completely and eventually the Earth will become inhabitable.

First of all, we need to know what and how these green house gases collaborate to cause global warming. Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Nitrous Oxide (N2O), Methane (CH4) and especially water vapor are the main gases that increases the Earth’s temperature. These gases block the heat of the Earth from escaping.

Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) are a type of green house gas that depletes the Ozone layer, which is a layer of gas that prevent the Sun’s ultraviolet radiation from damaging life. Carbon dioxide, one of the greenhouse gases, have increased by 30 percent. This will go on until the time where the entire human population has been wiped out.

What are the causes of these gas emissions?

As said before, the Industrial Revolution is somewhat responsible of this scenario. As humans tend to grow greedy for money, the growth of factories and machinery increases. Many huge companies and extremely successful people honestly don’t care about the conditions of the Earth. They make hundreds of thousands, countless factories all over the world, and majority of ...

...from factories is compulsory so that the waste products released will not be harmful to the environment. Although it is not as easy as it sounds, we need to take action on the things we do today, for the future of our only planet.

Conclusion

If we did stop all Green House Gas emissions, we will most likely stop climate change as it is the prime problem of global warming. This will take a long time, not years but probably centuries if humans did not care as it they did today. If people were to care about global warming, this problem would have been solved a long time ago. This is because, in order to solve a problem, you need to go into the problem itself and fix it within. Many lives will be saved from natural disasters but as we know, majority of the human race are so selfish that they do not care about what happens to the Earth or anyone else, only themselves.
