The greenhouse effect is not a term known by the average American. However, it is practically climate change. The greenhouse effect is when greenhouse gases become trapped in the atmosphere, consequently acting like a blanket to prevent any outgoing solar energy to escape. This causes the increased warming that generates all the issues. According to the Earth Works Group, carbon dioxide is responsible for 50% of the greenhouse effect.
The increase in levels of pollutants such as carbon dioxide, methane and chlorofluorocarbons are causing a thickening of the ozone layer creating a negative effect of trapping too much radiation from the sun and not allowing the normal release of excess radiation. Deforestation is also contributing greatly to global warming adding to the destructive path us humans are inflicting upon the Earth. Trees and plant life are natural absorbents of carbon dioxide. They collect the CO2 and convert it into oxygen, which not only lessens global warming, but provides us with fresh oxygen. The burning of fossil fuels from industrial factories and transportation systems are another heavy weight on the environment.
The carbon combines with oxygen to form carbon dioxide (CO2). The CO2 makes the stratosphere thicker. This wont just effects the place where the CO2 was released, it will affect the whole world. When a lot of CO2 is burned at once it increases the thickness of the stratosphere which will then trap the radiation that is emitted by the sun to the earth, which then bounces off the earth and gets trapped inside the atmosphere due to the thickness of the stratosphere. This should not happen at all, some radiation emitted by the sun should be trapped in but not as much.
*sea levels can rise *the global temperature can rise and change the weather *Plants and animals may not survive 5. b)to generate electricity 6. b)Petrol car emissions because the petrol is a fossil fuel,causes pollution 7. Yes they are good sources as they have a good reputation for throughout research. 8. No, they are not good sources as anyone can write anything and may not be expert. 9.
Every time these fossil fuels are burnt, more carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere, resulting in the thickening of the greenhouse layer, making the Earth a lot warmer. If nothing is to be done about the emission of carbon dioxide that causes climate change, it is possible for the Earth’s average temperature to increase to up to 9 degrees more then the current temperature. This will further affect the weather and the living species on this planet. Signs and changes are already starting to show all around the world with natural disaster, extinction of species and increased of temperatures that hit records. The major effects
Climate change is caused when the earth's temperature changes rapidly due to pollution in the air. Factories and industries tend to be large contributors to this pollution. I feel that the government’s duty is to control factory use and improvise technologies/resources that will help decrease pollution. An example of unregulated fossil fuel use is in Beijing, China. People have a difficult time breathing and have a decreased visibility because of the smog created.
The term global warming is referred to a gradual increase in the average temperature of the earth and its oceans; it 's a modification that is believed to be permanently changing the earth 's climate. Scientists are trying to tell us that the planet is warming. The increased amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases released by the burning of fuels, agriculture, and other activities, are considered to be the foremost sources of the global warming that has occurred over the past decades. In the long run, we forgot to look after our nature, on which we are dependent, from food, water and even the air we respire. But we pollute the same water we drink, damage the same air we need to respire.
2. Introduction Global warming is the gradual increase in the atmospheric temperature of the earth. This increase in the temperature is due to the green house effect. The radiation from the sun (heat) is absorbed by the atmosphere due to the green house effect which makes the life in the earth possible. If the atmosphere reflects the radiation from the sun then the atmospheric temperature of the earth would be so cold which would not permit any living organisms including human beings.
Analysis of the relationship between economic growth and environmental pollution in Iran (Evidence from manufacturing and services sectors) Abstract This article aims to answer the question of whether the manufacturing (and mining) and services sectors in Iran should be reconstructed or grown as before, in order to improve the environmental quality. The global warming, if not global burning, is a dire warning about environmental pollution dangers to everyone, living on the Earth. In this field, Iran is a good candidate due to its significantly high share of CO2 emissions in proportion to the low share of economic growth in the world which can be remedied by economic growth, based on Environmental Kuznets Hypothesis (EKH). We employ the Auto-Regressive Distributed Model (ARDL) to examine the long run equilibrium relationship between CO2 emission and economic growth. The results show that, regarding EKC, the nexus of CO2 emissions and economic growth in either sector is in a sharply ascending phase.
1. Major causes of Global Warming It is common perception that global warming is a result of pollution and increased production of green-house gases due to the callous behaviour of humans. Most people are unaware of the large impact of the other natural causes of global warming. Global warming being a very complex phenomenon, is most likely an outcome of the interaction of both natural and man-made causes. Global warming being a serious issue for our planet, we should be aware of the natural as well as human-driven causes.
