Global warming is a natural phenomenon and has been occurring over years and years. Just recently in the last decade, it has ended up being threatening advertisement people are more aware about it. The reason is just recently there has actually been a rise in the rate of global warming. Global warming primarily is the effect of greenhouse effect.
Let us comprehend exactly what the greenhouse effect is everything about. The main source of natural and light energy to earth is the sun. Virtually half of the sun’s energy in rays is taken in by the earth’s surface. Earth in return, radiates back this energy through infrared rays. Now, when this heat is taken in by greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and gets caught, it results in global warming.
Global warming is the best in the temperature of earth and its surface area all across. The main factor of co2 in atmosphere is power plants. These nuclear power plants burn fossil fuels and coal to create power. Burning coal is the main contributor of co2. With rise in co2 in the atmosphere the gas takes in more and more heat around and hence increases the global warming.
Co2 is found abundantly in the atmosphere. With respiration and photosynthesis, co2 plays an important function in the lives of animals and plants. With the help of photosynthesis, plants make their own food. Unwanted of carbon dioxide develops health troubles apart from ecological issues. Today, people are increasing the amount of carbon dioxide by cutting down forests, burning of fossil fuels ETC. Also increased production of cement is added to the boost in co2.
The major threat from global warming is global climate change. Climate change can be life threatening likewise if people staying in that location are not able to cope up with it. Glaciers around the globe are melting. Melting glaciers in fact indicate rise in the sea level. If we consider it, then the rise in sea level in itself can posture a great deal of dangers to humankind. Firstly, it can be a dangerous thing for all the tows and locations near coastal locations. The life of people at such places can be in threat. Rise in sea water level, there is threat to the ground level. When combined with ground water, sea water can be a threat to the drinking water. Deficiency of drinking water in itself can lead to lot of chaos.
As polar ice caps will melt, the water launched by them will go the ocean and raise the sea level. As sea level will rise, the locations lying next to the oceans can deal with huge floods.
With change in climate worldwide, there will be even more of natural tragedies. Natural catastrophes like floods, dry spell, cyclones, volcanoes, and so on. The world will suffer a lot if global warming is not battled against it today. We can likewise reduce the effect of global warming by managing it. It can be done with a great deal of things which we as individuals can begin in your home. Things like planting more and more trees around. Planting more trees will not just assist in preventing dirt erosion. It will also help in releasing live saving gas i.e. oxygen. Apart from this, trees likewise help us in managing the greenhouse effect by taking in greenhouse gases.
However, if we browse, we hardly discover people planting trees. We can quickly find people who want to cut trees and use them or make use of that land. We must also prevent making use of paper and go for electronic media. This will conserve trees.
Use of plastic bags leads to garbage and when this garbage is burnt, it launches more hazardous gases in the atmosphere.
