The Pros And Cons Of Global Warming

1069 Words5 Pages
Global Warming is usually referred to as the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is the absorption of energy radiated from the earth’s surface by carbon dioxide and water vapor and other gases. Some of these natural gases from the atmosphere tend to trap the sun’s heat, which is referred to as global warming. The Earth can be warmed up by trapping the sun’s heat. For the last thousands of years, the Earth’s climate has been useful to humans. The Earth’s average surface temperature has existed for life by the natural greenhouse effect. Major greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide are being built in the atmosphere. Each time we burn gasoline, oil, coal, or even natural gases, more carbon dioxide is added to the Earth.

No one else would be injured according to the supporters of the plants, except maybe the ones on the plane and the plant workers. Say the plane hits an important part of the power plant, the chances that dangerous gases could be let into the air that we breathe every day is very high, and the outcome would be unthinkable. In the past, we saw men die from illnesses later that the real disasters and also we have witnessed families suffer for a long time afterwards. The effect become hereditary, throughout generations. Also, time is a major issue. Building nuclear power plants would take up to tens years with all the planning and authority approvals that would be needed. Global warming is the biggest issue facing the world right now. Scientists have argued all over the world, and it has been used by world leaders as a political tool. How it effects animals and agriculture is very scary, and how it effects the human population is even more frightening. The rise in temperature may cause naturally within the earth’s atmosphere or by human influences. Due to human activities, the warming has resulted in the increase of greenhouse gases…show more content…
Such as carbon dioxide emissions from the power plants burning coal, natural gas/petroleum, to produce electricity, carbon dioxide emissions from burning gas and diesel fuel for transportation. Also, methane emissions they get from animals, agriculture like rice paddies, and from Artic sea beds. Along with deforestation, especially tropical forests for wood, pulp, and farmland. This will end in more CO2, and grow in greenhouse gases and another damage is it will increase in using the chemical fertilizers on croplands. The change in climates can be seen all over the universe. As the atmospheric temperature rises, the impacts can fuel each other. This escalates the process of global warming and causes runaway irreversible changes, being sea level rising, extreme weather, economic effects, disease, and loss of species, agricultural changes and water shortages. Most scientists think that global warming is cause by humans and their activities. Some experts do not think that humans are large contributors, while others do not think we are small contributors. Some scientists may say that global warming is natural or that there is nothing we can do, but the reality is over millions of years the Earth’s climate has constantly changed, temperatures increased and dropped. But it’s happening now much faster that before, and does not give is any time to react or
