Global Perspectives: Individual Research Climate Change- To what extent is climate change affecting mankinds’ life span? Over the past centuries, nothing worse than this situation has posed a threat to living beings, it can be both, human or animal. Climate change has rather rapidly become a global issue, mostly because of the negative contributions made by humans, unintentionally. The consequences are immensely dreadful, and are the cause for the death of many innocent creatures. Mankind is a selfish nation, we think of ourselves as saviours, but in reality we are destroyers.

Therefore forcing manufacturers to create more things in factories using different chemical that usually result as deadly compounds in gaseous state in the atmosphere. Also, greenhouse gasses emitted by different countries are contributing a lot to climate change, for example, The United States alone produces 24,800 kg of greenhouse gasses, and Bangladesh produces 400 kg annually, yet, it’s suffers mainly because of its lack of initiatives taken. So, the in return the ozone layer is affected by the gasses. Sunlight, when it hits the surface, is either absorbed by the land and atmosphere or is reflected back into space. If, in case it’s absorbed, then some of the energy, in the form of heat is released back into the atmosphere. The severity of sun rays can cause either extreme cooling or extreme heating, as the level of intensity is affected by changes taking place in the sun itself. All of these changes are originally caused by mankind, as our population tends to increase immensely, our need for oxygen elevates as well, on the other hand, we also need land for settlement, fields for agriculture, especially in Less Economically Developed Countries and lead them to chop trees. Therefore destroy many habitats, affecting the eco-system. In Bangladesh, climate change is affecting most because the country is highly populated and is low-land and more prone to flooding. The
