When the levels of concentrations of these gases increase it disturbs climatic conditions causing the Earth to be warmer than usual. Carbon dioxide levels are always higher in concentrations because human activities contribute most to the release of carbon dioxide. Fossil fuel combustion in changes in the land have caused carbon dioxide to be released at an accelerated rate (Gay, 1986). Concentrations of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have steadily increased over the years. Oil, gas, and coal are used on a day to day basis.
Humans are the ones who are causing the most damage to the earths environment, that movements are being made to put the mistake that humans are making to cause climate change (global warming) into perspective of how harmful the things humans do in their every day lives can and will effect the environment, this is so we can help to improve those affects. Rise of gasoline and oil prices have always been a big issue ever since the need for fossil fuels rose throughout the years, especially when the distribution and demand was increased for these fossil fuels. Fossil fuels in general (gasoline) are hurting the environment tremendously. The leading consumer of fossil fuels is the United States. When fossil fuels are burned it is one of the biggest causes to global warming and climate change.
It is happening everyday, it is all over the news, and it has become a worldwide issue. Global warming is one of the problematic and controversial issues facing the world today. The news about this current world issue has dire predictions about the future since it is affecting our planet. Global warming is no longer a myth that many people have made up, but it is a real disaster that is affecting the world. Global warming refers to the change in climate, which can be attributed directly or not directly to human activity, which alters the composition of the global atmosphere by the earth overheating.
Some processes that contribute to global warming are factories, cars, and many other objects that produce carbon dioxide. Global warming is affecting every one of us. The earth is warming up and melting all of the ice and glaciers. This is very bad for animals and humans. The effect we are making on this Earth is becoming a bigger problem than we can handle.
The “greenhouse effect” is the most prominent cause for the rise of global temperatures. According to the book, “Earth’s Changing Environment” the warming of the earth’s climate is due to a collection of gases in the atmosphere. There are various gases in our planets atmosphere, including: water vapor, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide and methane. These gases, called greenhouse gases, absorb a large portion of the radiation from the sun and send it back to the ear... ... middle of paper ... ...the damage that we have already done, but not impossible. It is very important that we do all we can to stop this global crisis before it gets any worse that it already is or there won't be any chance of success.
Global warming and its causes is one of the most debated issues today. Global warming refers to the increase of average world temperatures which cause changes in climate. Rising global temperatures have resulted changes in weather and climate. The human activities such as burning of fossil fuel and deforestation, rise global temperature, decline Arctic sea ice and ocean acidification clearly notes that global warming is happening and is caused by human activities. The burning fossil fuels produce greater amount of carbon dioxide more than amount needed in the atmosphere affecting the natural carbon cycle, although the green house gases are naturally occurring cycle phenomena.
Global warming is a major threat to the planet. It is agreed that humans have caused most of the past century's warming by releasing greenhouse gasses, as we power our electronic lives. The “greenhouse effect” is performed when the gasses let out into Earth’s atmosphere trap heat from the sun. Through the burning of fossil fuels, humans are enhancing the greenhouse effect and increasing the temperatures of the planet. Although the greenhouse effect is what keeps the planet warm, thereby supporting life, too much would also result in severe issues.
At present, the life of human beings is more convenient with all the inventions like cars and air conditioners. These inventions have made our lives easier but have also helped to cause global warming. The emission of carbon dioxide from these machines in the atmosphere causes global warming. Global warming, defined by Oxford dictionary is 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 (“Definition of global….”). There are several creative ideas to stop global warming and some of them have promises, for example, saving money while saving the environment.
Global Warming One of the most substantial problems in the world today is global warming. This gradual warming of the earth is in occurrence at an extremely slow rate but it is happening. Many scientists believe that as human’s work and release greenhouse gases into the earth’s atmosphere, it can become dangerous for the long lasting life of humans and our environment. “Unless we take immediate action, the impacts of global warming will continue to intensify, grow ever more costly and damaging, and increasingly affect the entire planet - including you, your community, and your family” (“Global Warming Impacts”). Everyone should be knowledgeable about global warming and the dangers that it brings to our planet.
Global Warming One of the biggest problems facing the world today is global warming. Global warming has an adverse effect on biodiversity and climatic conditions on earth. Numerous current developments clearly demonstrate that global warming has a direct impact on warming of land, rising sea levels, the melting of ice caps and other major climate changes all over the word. Man-made carbon dioxide (CO2) released in the atmosphere is one of the major factors leading to global warming disaster. Warming of Land One of the major impacts of global warming on earth is the warming of land.
