Now a days the main problem that our world is facing, is the global warming, but what is global

warming? According to Wikipedia.org “Global warming refers to an unequivocal and continuing rise in

the average temperature of Earth's climate system”. That only means the change in temperature or should

I say the sudden change in temperature is caused by the global warming. And according to oxford

dictionary “A gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth’s atmosphere generally attributed to

the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and other

pollutants”.From year 1971, 90% of warming is happening at the oceans. (http://en.wikipedia.org)

Condition of Earth

According to scientist humans influenced a lot in global warming. Based on 2005 statistics or survey

about the yearly world greenhouse gas emission, there is 14.3% due to transportation, a 3.2% from waste,

13.8% in agriculture, 12.2% in land use change, 4.3% in industrial processes, 4.0 for fugitive emissions,

14.7% in different kinds of industry, 8.6% in other fuel combustion, and 24.9% in electricity and

heat.(http://en.wikipedia.org).

Based on this research we can all see how much people contribute to the current global warming. Every

day we destroy our earth without doing something that can improve or grow it. Imagine a bolo that was

used continuously without sharpening it, it will become dull and rusty, and that is exactly what we are

doing in our earth.
