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.
As the Defense Council states, global warming is caused by carbon dioxide and other types of heat trapping pollution that are collecting like a blanket in the atmosphere, trapping heat from the earth as it tries to radiate back into space. As a result, the planet is getting warming. In fact, 2002 was the hottest year yet. In an article in World Almanac and Book of Facts, 9 out of the10 hottest years have been in the 90's. There are a few major causes of theses heat trapping gases.
Her research has found from 1860 to 1970, global warming was largely due to natural sources. But from 1970 to the present natural sources accounted for only one-third the increase while human influence accounted for the remaining two-thirds of the increased greenhouse effect. The increase in greenhouse gasses from human sources comes from a variety of things. Elevated Co2 levels, which have been increasing at a rate of 0.5% per year, largely come from the burning of fossil fuels(70-75%), especially coal. Deforestation and plant burning account for the remainder.
The “greenhouse effect” is the most prominent cause for the rise of global temperatures. According to the book, “Earth’s Changing Environment” the warming of the earth’s climate is due to a collection of gases in the atmosphere. There are various gases in our planets atmosphere, including: water vapor, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide and methane. These gases, called greenhouse gases, absorb a large portion of the radiation from the sun and send it back to the ear... ... middle of paper ... ...the damage that we have already done, but not impossible. It is very important that we do all we can to stop this global crisis before it gets any worse that it already is or there won't be any chance of success.
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. It has been known that using these gasses stops the suns heat rays from getting into space. This is called the green house effect. There is a question weather this adds to Co2 levels in the atmosphere. A rise in temperature could cause coastal folding and major climatic changes.
There is some correlation, but little evidence, to support a direct causal relationship between CO2 and global temperature through the millennia. Following in his Feb. 25, 2014 Senate Environment and Public Works Committee testimony "Natural Resource Adaptation: Protecting Ecosystems and Economies," but you can tell that manmade emissions have helped increase the carbon dioxide and such just by the release of gasses from cars all over the world and nuclear plants with the burning of fossil fuels has helped the cause of oceans being warmer, sea levels rising, and the melting of glaciers. Which is even more dangerous for us because it would lead to even stronger hurricanes and tropical storms because hurricanes build of warm water as sea surface temperatures rise the development of storms will contain more energy. And the causing of more wet lands and higher sea levels will cause more damage by the hurricanes and storms. But they are many ways people are trying to slow down the rise of climate change for example Tesla , Tesla is a car that runs only electricity no emission and
The main effect that causes global warming is the greenhouse effect as I said before, which is a phenomenon referred to absorption by certain atmospheric gases— mainly H2O, followed by CO2 and O3— part of the energy that the ground emits, as a consequence of having been heated by solar radiation. The natural greenhouse effect that stabilizes the climate of the earth is not a question of inclusion in the debate on global warming. That is without this natural greenhouse effect temperatures would fall by about 30° Celsius, and with such change the oceans would freeze and life as we know it would be impossible to have because of the global warming. The evidence of warming of the climate system manifests itself in observed increases in temperature on earth and into the ocean, widespread melting of snow and ice, and rising... ... middle of paper ... ...we get low the thermostat 2 degrees in the winter and up 2 degrees in the summer, we can save about 900 kilos of carbon dioxide a year. Moreover, plant a tree.
Greenhouse Effect Since the beginning of the existence of planet Earth, different eras have shaped the atmosphere of our planet. But recently, the inhabitation of mankind has changed the levels of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere, on a rather unhealthy scale. Because of our emissions, we have given global warming no other path then to rise. The increased amounts of Carbon Dioxide and other gases put into the air are enhancing the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect, the trapping of the sun's warmth in the planet’s atmosphere, is causing global warming.
The energy that does not get absorbed into the ground is reflected back into the atmosphere and then either goes into space or gets trapped by greenhouse gasses. More heat energy will be trapped if there are more greenhouse gasses floating around in Earth’s atmosphere (UCS). Due to the nature of greenhouse gasses, doubling the CO2 levels in our atmosphere is projected to result in warming of four to seven degrees during this century. (Washington Post J). The current CO2 levels are troubling because if there is more heat being trapped in the atmosphere, then the Earth’s climate would also be expected to increase.
Global Warming Two issues that worry many scientists are global warming and the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is a natural process that keeps the earth at temperatures that are livable. What does the greenhouse effect have to do with global warming? When humans release gases into the air, the greenhouse effect will alter the temperature of the earth. More gases in the atmosphere means the earth will start to get warmer, and the result is global warming.
