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.
On top of the warming due to greenhouse gases, there are also holes in our O-Zone layer, which blocks out over 90% of the UV rays, and also the weakening of our atmosphere. What is global warming? Usually when people think of Global warming, it's the normal Ice Caps melting and warm winters, which is partly true. Global Warming is the accelerated rate in the increase of temperature. But they are ignorant to the fact that Global warming can and will cause so much more damage to us soon in the future, along with these effects we will also face Food Shortages from the extreme weathers, heating that can actually damage you, and water contamination.
Scientists are now concerned that the greenhouse gases are being increased by human actions to levels that could be very harmful to life on Earth. Almost all specialists agree that without drastic steps to curb greenhouse gas emissions, the average global temperature will increase 1 to 3.5 degrees Celsius during the next century because effective levels of carbon dioxide are expected to double sometime between 2050 and 2100. Many of the greenhouse gases remain in the atmosphere for a long time, and because this happens their tendency to warm the Earth persi... ... middle of paper ... ...eforestation of previously forested land that has become agriculturally useless has to be promoted. That will require conservation incentive schemes and improvement of farm yields to reduce the pressure to clear new land. This will not be nearly as expensive as coping with the costs of global warming.
What happens when too much carbon dioxide gets omitted into the Earth’s atmosphere? The condition known as Global Warming occurs. Global Warming is the rising of the Earth’s surface temperature due to chemicals in the atmosphere. Global Warming has many threats on the climate and even the health of the people on this planet. Some of these threats include the altering of crop seasons and even effect the way organisms survive on the planet.
In fact, these weather patterns already greatly affect our lives; imagine how severe the effects will be for our grandchildren. Another term used to describe global warming is the greenhouse effect. When gases are released into the atmosphere, they stay there and trap sunlight from escaping. This trapped sunlight heats up the Earth, making the overall temperature of Earth increase. This effect happens naturally and prevents the Earth from forming an ice ball, but human creations that release extra gases are causing more heat to be trapped and accelerating global warming.
Natural causes are much less than human causes. Natural causes have changed the climate by changes in sunlight and volcanic activity has shown an increase in gases in the atmosphere. Humans cause global warming by burning fossil fuels. This is an everyday activity and it is harming the Earth’s atmosphere. Like I explained earlier, carbon dioxide in the Earth has increased dramatically and this is cause by burning fossil fuels which results in the Greenhouse Effect.
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.
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.
Scientist around the world are warning us that global warming poses a major threat to our future quality of life, previously there has been little information on this problem. Right now, the rate of global warming may be 100 times faster than it has ever been. Very soon the earth may become hotter then at any time in human history. In the last decades the problems of atmospheric change have been gravely advanced by pollution resulting from human activities. These environmental changes pose a real threat to the lives of people and wild life.It is vital to all of us that we fully understand the complex relationship between the atmosphere and the earth.
One may ask how the Greenhouse Effect is so detrimental to the environment. The burning of fossil fuels expels extra greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. The most abundant gas released from this process is Carbon Dioxide. When Carbon Dioxide levels are high, this in turn causes the temperature to rise causing many different things to happen, such as the melting of the polar ice caps. Should the polar ice caps melt, this would not only wash out many different ecosystems from the excess water on land, but it would also release a great deal of Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere that had been trapped in the ice caps.
