CLIMATE CHANGE DUE TO GLOBAL WARMING Climate changes due to global warming has been a global concern. Climate change it has effected our economy, health and communities in a very bad way. What do you think we will be able to do to prevent this? Global warming? Is it real? Global warming is defined as a gradual increase in the average temperature of the earth’s atmosphere. The evidence of global warming is all around us. For example, sea level rise : rise in the water level in the sea. Every year the water rise from 10-20cm. Temperature rise : the rise in temperature which is due to the increase in CO2 in the atmosphere , leads to climate change and hence cause global warming. Shrinking ice sheets : sea levels rise faster causing climate change and which leads to ice sheets shrinking. This can lead to catastrophic flooding , and can cause huge problem to the countries near by. So what is global warming and what causes it? Global warming is an increase in the average temperature of earth’s atmosphere. The process of global warming works by, the light waves entering earth’s atmosphere and heats up the earth and is then sent it back into outer space in the form of infrared waves. But the infrared waves traps some of heat in the atmosphere , which helps the climates to stay at a equilibrium so we can survive. This problem is caused by the CO2 (carbon dioxide). More caron dioxide is added to the rest every year. CO2 is like a blanket which traps heat and keep warming the
