Earth, home of billions of people and thousands of different animal species, under goes changes every night and every day. Some changes take years to be noticeable and others can be noticed right away. Climatic warming, also known as global warming has been causing changes that Earth and its inhabitants have been dealing with over the years. Climatic/global warming is the average temperature of Earth's near-surface air and ocean over a period of time. Earth is similar to a green house because a green house traps the radiation of the sun and helps the plants grow, and Earth contains gases called greenhouse gases that create a “blanket” and trap the radiation and the heat given out by the sun. What happens when too much heat is being trapped inside the Earth? The Earth’s temperatures start to rise. The increase in temperatures of Earth started increasing as soon as the Industrial Revolution started taking place. The Industrial Revolution was a very important stage for the world’s civilization, but who was to know that a very negative outcome would result from it. Factories became popular, automobiles became the most common way of transportation, and chemicals became being used in everyday resources. Strong doses of pollution have been released over the centuries and increasing as the years go by. All the gases that are being released cause the ozone layer of our Earth to fall apart and let more ultra-violet rays to enter and cause harm to the people, the animals and, environment. The greenhouse effect and humans and their creations and actions are the main reason for global warming causing: melting of ice caps and rise in sea levels, dramatic climate changes, endangerment of animal species, and human health contain and deaths.
