Global warming is a war that we should not get involved with because we will lose if changes aren’t made soon. Global warming is the rapid increase in earth’s average surface temperature over the past century due to the fact that greenhouse gases are being released into the atmosphere increasing the earth’s average temperature (EarthObservatory.NASA.org). There are many contributing factors that play a role into the cause of global warming. Greenhouse gasses are gasses such as Carbon Dioxide, Methane, Nitrous Oxide, and F-gasses that trap heat in the atmosphere. The heat that is trapped in the earth’s atmosphere is a slowly melting glaciers, cause sea levels to rise and is messing with the weather patterns.
Global warming is the most dangerous phenomenal, because it can cause some other phenomenal by changing the ecological balance. As we know, each problem has a solution and Global Warming is one of the problems that have some suggested solution after studying the problems by the scientists. Global warming is the increase of the amount of the Greenhouse gases, the gases that keep the sun heat in the atmosphere, more than the natural state. The increase of the Greenhouse gases causes a rise in the average climate of the planet. Human activities cause the greenhouse gases to accumulate in the atmosphere, and cause an increase in the global warming.
Rise in global temperature will cause sea level to rise, and is likely to increase the intensity of extreme weather events and to change the amount and pattern of rainfall. Other effects of global warming include changes in agricultural yields, trade routes, glacier retreat, species extinctions and increases in the ranges of disease vectors . Another reason why greenhouse gases have inflated is due to the decrease in the amount of plant life, commonly called deforestation. Plant life is the only thing known on earth to consume carbon dioxide Forest destruction creates more heat because trees are able to store a large amount of CO2 in their structures. One tree absorbs about 13 pounds of CO2 per year, and each one acre of forest absorbs about 2.8 tons of CO2.
It will cause the surface to heat up too much and it could crack, split, and in some cases, melt depending on the location. Other evidence includes, the decline in Artic Ice and glaciers. “Both the extent and thickness of Artic sea ice has declined rapidly over the last several decades” (“Climate Change: How do we know?” 2). The location, mass, and size of these cause major problems for oceans and other large bodies of water. The temperature increase, causing these to melt, will make the sea level increase greatly.
Global Warming have gotten worse since the first record keeping in 1880. According to Peter M. Vitousek, he wrote in the article “Beyond Global Warming: Ecology and Global Change”, the increase of carbon dioxide is likely to have climatic consequences and certainly it has direct effects on biota in all Earth's terrestrial ecosystems. Some of the effects of global warming are rising seas, heat waves, storm surges, droughts, erratic and intense rainfall. Who is really to be blamed for global warming? Some people thinks that global warming is caused naturally but they are wrong.
In recent years, global warming is a topic that has received much attention. It’s is a gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide and other pollutants, which also known as the green house effect. Global warming can negatively affect the earth's delicate ecosystems. It has been linked to dangerous new weather patterns, the extinction of plant and animal species and so many others bad effects. Global warming is caused by pollution eating away at the ozone layer of the atmosphere, as well as greenhouse gases trapping heat.
Global Warming is a condition caused by greenhouse gases and human activities. The increased concentration of greenhouse gases due to activities such as deforestation and fossil fuel burning is causing the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans to warm up. As a result of this, global warming has some serious effects in the shape of extreme weather, species extinctions, and rising sea levels. These effects can contribute to the changes that are taking place all over the world, most of which are dangerous enough to pose a threat to the survival of life on Earth in the future. Of all the effects of global warming, the extreme weather that is taking place all over the world is the most obvious one.
However, too many greenhouse gases can cause the temperature to increase out of control. Such is the case on Venus where greenhouse gases are abundant and the average temperature at the surface is more than 855 degrees Fahrenheit (457 degrees Celsius). We have increased the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere by burning fossil fuels, such as coal, oil and petrol. Cows, rice fields and rubbish rotting in landfill sites produce methane, and aerosols and fridges use CFCs. The removal of trees - deforestation - is also thoug... ... middle of paper ... ...warming.
Global warming is the gradual rise of the earth’s surface temperature, caused by the release of greenhouse gases that become trapped in the earth’s atmosphere. These trapped gases are responsible for the changes in the global climate patterns. Greenhouse gases are considered any gas that is absorbed into the atmosphere such as carbon dioxide, methane, and water vapor while preventing the sun’s solar rays from escaping back out into space. There is a natural process called the greenhouse effect that is required to keep our planet sustainable, without this process Earth would be uni... ... middle of paper ... ...eel the calamity in the coming years. Rising temperatures will drastically change our climates and ecosystems into something far removed from the natural we have seen over centuries before us.
Global warming is an important ecological issue and has many negative effects upon our environment. Global warming, or what other calls it, the Greenhouse effect, is the result of a natural process. This ecological process keeps our planet warm enough to provide life, but because of the increase of temperature, caused by the high accumulation of gasses, our recent way of life and environment could be in danger. Over the years the Earth’s temperature has been increasing as a consequence of industry, fossil fuels, and agricultural processes produced by gas emotions, human and natural actions. It has been definitely proved that the planet has been threatened by global warming over the past years.
