Some people do not believe that this phenomenon is really happening. Based on the facts, it really is happening. The surface of the Earth is warming rapidly and humans are a main cause. This paper is about global warming, the causes of it, the changes in climate on Earth, and the potential dangers of it. Global warming is the phenomenon of the rising average air temperature near the Earth’s surface over the last couple of centuries.
Global Warming Global warming has been a continuous controversy regarding whether humans are the primary cause for the destruction of our planet. By simply living, humans are contributing to the unceasing rise in temperature of the earth’s atmosphere predominantly created by the greenhouse effect. Greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide and methane, trap heat in the atmosphere. A mass amount of greenhouse gases develop from the burning of fossil fuels. However, deforestation, industrial processes and a few agricultural practices still transmit gases into the air.
In order to do this I will firstly consider the perspective of Hong Kong. I will also investigate what is currently happening in the US, and finally I will explore the significance of global warming on my family and myself. Scope: Solutions to Global Warming – Local Perspective Reduction of roadside air pollution. Transport such as Taxis and Buses that run on Diesel have been advised to use Petrol or run on electricity, so as to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas. The new program created called "Carrot and Stick" intensive replacement of pre-Euro 4 DCV by cleaner vehicles.

Global Warming and its Effects Just as we think our atmosphere might be getting better we realize that its getting worse due to global warming and we just happen to realize it now. There are many different reasons to why and how global warming is happening, but the main reason of global warming is the Greenhouse effect. Greenhouse effect is when the atmosphere of the Earth traps some of the heat coming from the sun. This happens due to burning fuels, cutting trees, and the concentration of heat on the Earth. There are many other causes to global warming such as air pollution, Melting of the Glaciers, Human Activities and even Industrial Advancement that have affected climate change.
Problems and Solutions to Catastrophic Global Warming Global warming is becoming a major problem for our environment. Global warming is causing the atmosphere to become warmer which causes many problems for the environment. Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere allows sunlight to pass through, but it traps heat from escaping. This causes the earth to warm which keeps the earth from becoming a ball of frozen ice, but excess carbon dioxide causes global warming, which will affect the environment. There are many solutions to slowing or stopping the effects of global warming including planting trees, cutting carbon dioxide emissions, and using alternative fuels.
