Global warming is an important social issue in a political as well as an economical sense. Global warming, a man-made disaster is mainly caused by greenhouse gases from human activity. Qualities of enormous natural disasters caused by global warming such as sea level rising, arctic sea ice melting, frequent hurricane, flood and drought. These acts of nature cannot be completely solved by human power, however it is possible to slow down the process global warming. We need to figure out the ways to curve the global warming phenomenon.
The greenhouse effect is a natural atmospheric process that is necessary for life, as we know it. Too strong of a greenhouse effect that is caused by the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation, may cause harmful environmental change. The greenhouse effect is only troublesome when it gets too strong and warms things too much. And that’s just what scientists say has happened over the last 150 years or so as the people of industrialized nations have extracted Earth’s vast buried stores of fossil fuels and burned them. Each greenhouse gas differs in its ability to absorb heat in the atmosphere.
Activities like burning fossil fuel and deforestation are upsetting the climate by interrupt the natural greenhouse gases balance. Global warming has a long term effects in our life. This is a serious concern that actions should be taken immediately before it is too late. Works Cited John Slaght, P. H. (2009). Common question about climate change.
These greenhouse gases trap heat in the atmosphere and keep Earth warm through a process called the greenhouse effect (Greenhouse Effect). Although it is necessary that the Earth has this greenhouse effect, there is fear that increasing levels of greenhouse gases are resulting in too much of a greenhouse effect. “The problem we now face is that human activities – particularly
As a result, the world experiences global warming due to the greenhouse effect resulting from carbon II oxide. Notably, human activities such as industrialization and burning of fuels have also contributed towards global warming. In turn, climate changes have had adverse effects on human health and the environment. However, there are measures that individuals across the world can take to reduce or put an end to climatic changes. In any case, climate change is the change average climate variation as fossil fuels
Also, when natural gas is burned monoxide, carbon dioxide, and other compounds are emitted in the atmosphere and contribute to the greenhouse effect which results in climate change (“Advantages and Disadvantages of Natural Gas,” 2014, May 08). However, with possible extensions on the use of natural gas, these byproducts could be collected and used so that no damage is done to the earth's atmosphere. For example, methane could be used to manufacture organic chemicals. The byproduct mercury could be collected and used in batteries, fluorescent lights and sulfur used for gunpowder and fireworks. Another possible extension would be natural gas vehicles.
A variety of industrial processes, such as the production of iron and steel, utility factories, and crude oil processing produce this gas. Sulfur dioxide can also be emitted into the atmosphere by natural disasters or means (Farnham, http://www.ems.psu.edu/info/explore/AcidRain.html). This accounts for ten percent of all sulfur dioxide emission, coming from volcanoes, sea spray, plankton, and rotting vegetation. Overall, 69.4 percent of sulfur dioxide is produced by industrial combustion. Only 3.7 percent is caused by transportation (Farnham, http://www.ems.psu.edu/info/explore/AcidRain.html).
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.
So the co2 and burning gases causes the increase of global warming (http://www.nmsea.org/Curriculum/Primer/Global_Warming/fossil_fuels_and_global_warming.htm) Radiations: Radiations also increase the global warming. Some elements emitted radiations naturally so that the temperature of is increased. : Melting of the ice caps : loss of habitat near the poles. Polar bears are now thought to be greatly endangered by the shortening of their feeding season due to dwindling ice packs. Greenhouse gases: Greenhouse gases are the the gases that block the ultraviolet rays coming from the sun on earth.
It can also enter the atmosphere from natural gas fields and coal mines. There are various sources of nitrous oxide including the use of fertili... ... middle of paper ... ... We as a world community need to seriously do something drastic to slow down the process of global warming, otherwise we may find ourselves in a situation where we can't turn back the hands of time and we're suffering because of Global warming. We need to make sure that future generations can live a happy and uncomplicated life; they shouldn't have to suffer from the impacts of Global warming that we (the current generation) have mostly caused.
