Question: Discuss about global warming and its impact on developing and developed country. Answer: Global warming refers to the increase the average surface temperature of Earth due to effect of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide which is caused due to burning of fossil fuels or from deforestation. The increase in carbon dioxide leads to melting of polar ice caps which increases the sea level and pose danger for the people. The amount of heat which is trapped in the atmosphere depends upon the concentration of greenhouse gases and the time they stay in the atmosphere. The major greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide, methane, ozone, nitrous oxide and water vapour. It is the increase in atmosphere temperature of Earth due to greenhouse gases. The temperature has risen by 0.6 degree Celsius in last 140 years, it may be rise from 1.5 degree Celsius to 2.0 degree Celsius and it results in increased or decreased of rainfall, snow, winds and other weather phenomenon. Rising temperature melts the polar ice caps and rise sea level. The crops fails due to the drier and hotter condition in Asia and Americas. Effects of global warming: • Melting glaciers, severe droughts and early snowmelt cause water shortage and increase the risk of wildfires. • Disturbance of habitats such as Alpine medows and Coral reefs results in extinction of plants and animal species. • Rising sea levels leads to coastal flooding. • Due to high level of air pollution, allergies, asthma and infectious disease
