Introduction Perhaps let’s first ask ourselves what is Global warming? Global warming is an increase, on a long-term, of the average temperature on earth. It is generally due to an increased concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, mostly caused by human activities. ‘The emissions of greenhouse gases on our planet has increased by 70% from 1970 to 2004’ says Couroche Kalantary, a reporter for Global Majority E Journal. (I quote him as he is said to be a reliable source by some major American universities).
The global average temperature increased by about 0.8°C from 2005, but the current warming trend is 0.13 – 0.16 °C per decade, and it is projected to continue to rise at a rapid rate (Hansen et al.2010). The effect of the activities of man especially in technologically advanced nations, has brought about emission of CO2 and other greenhouse gases which has resulted in the depletion of the ozone layer and global warming (Hegerl et al., 1997; Tett et al., 1999, 2002; Stott et al., 2000).These can be seen from the changes in meteorological parameters such as temperature and precipitation. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) likewise agreed to this, that the varying greenhouse gas concentrations were more to be the major cause of climate change (Climate Change 2001: The Scientific Basis—Contribution of Working Group I to the Third Assessment Report of IPCC, 2001). However, climate change pose as a great threat to biodiversity, the ecosystems, economic growth, global food security, life as a whole and encourages inequality (Kurnik, 2015 - for IPCC). In view of this effect of climate change, it is of necessity to project and observe
The Causes of Global Warming Do you know the biggest environmental threat today ? Does your answer no ? It is global warming. Global warming has come to a detectable condition and has gained importance in the last 50 years. The average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere near the surface increased in the 20th century between 0.6° C 0.2 ° C. Widespread scientific opinion on climate change, "the temperature increase can be noticed that create effects on human life in the last 50 years" is that.
Climate change is the most pressing issue at the moment over the world. The cause of climate change is caused by natural causes and people. Global warming is caused by Appliances, deforestation, and fossil fuels. The climate is changing rapidly and we need to do something. The global climate change and its consequences are leaving a bad impact on the countries to face poverty and hotter temperatures.
We all know that some form of climate change is happening right this minute. Things are going to happen and are happening to make the Earth act this way. Here are some of the recent evidence that climate change is happening now. There are more CO2 in the air than there has been in a hundred million years. It takes up 81 percent of the United States greenhouse gases.
The change of temperature in Antarctica due to global warming has had many effects on wildlife and the environment already. Although these effects many not seem big right now, there are many that will progress and continue to change Antarctica’s environment, depending on how the temperature changes. Temperatures have been rising constantly in Antarctica. Last April was the second warmest April in history, only behind the year before that (Waldman). The whole world is experiencing global
Our average temperature has increased by 1.5 degrees fahrenheit compared to a century ago! Although this may not seem like much, its effects are detrimental to living organisms on the long run. The changes on our planet are affecting everyone, whether that be humans or animals. It is a slow poison and slowly our earth will become a planet with an uninhabitable environment. Human activities are affecting Earth’s climate negatively, which can be seen through the many signs of evidence on the planet; but these changes can be reversed.
Climate change refers to changes in climate over the long term status. Differences statistics usually different periods of temperature and precipitation and other climatic factors to reflect. Climate change is mainly in three areas: global warming, acid rain, ozone depletion, global warming, which is currently the most pressing human problems relating to the future of mankind. The planet keeps getting hotter, Farmers will see declines in some crops, while others will reap increased yields. from corn to wheat to rice and cotton, will drop by up to 30 percent.
Change is not a new phenomenon, however, the speed of change in these recent years is alarming! Climate Change is the name given to significant changes in weather patterns over a long period. This affects Global Warming because the weather patterns are changing dramatically which increases the global temperatures. Climate change is not a new fact. The thesis I advance is that this is ultimately down to human activity and the impact it has on the Earth’s climate.
Global warming is a situation that causes the temperatures around the world to rise significantly. People living before 1950 hardly felt any effects of climate change. However, the weather patterns in the last fifty years have been subjected to significant changes on a daily basis coupled with the increase in atmospheric temperature and weather vagaries. The term ‘global warming’ was first used by Wallace Broecker in 1975 ‘Climate Change: Are We on the Brink of a Pronounced Global Warming?’ (Wallace-Wells, 2017). The most significant contributors to the phenomenon include war, industrialization, agriculture, and modern transport systems.
