Climate Change This quote said by Washington State Governor, Jay Inslee shows the severity of climate change “We are the first generation to feel the sting of climate change, and we are the last generation that can do something about it.” “On Earth human activities are changing the natural greenhouse of the Earth.” (A blanket around the Earth). Burning fossil fuels is causing carbon dioxide to be released into the air. By releasing this gas into the air the natural greenhouse gases increase and cause many effects to happen. Carbon dioxide is also caused by removing natural resources from the land for agriculture. When the Earth starts to warm many other things do to, the ocean will become more acidic and glaciers might partially melt.
Global warming, the ozone layers being damaged, deforesting, rivers drying up, unbalancing ecosystem and different kinds of pollution lead to certain climate change. Although all the causes of climate change are made by humans, it is hard to restore the original global balance situation. Climate change becomes a serious ailment of our mother earth. The earth, our home,
According to scientist’s reports, global warming has been rapidly growing since the industrial revolution. In a speed that mankind is damaging the earth's ecosystem, the chance of the existence of several species, including human beings, is endangered. Comparing present day energy and fossil fuel energy, many of us come up with a result that present day energy is expensive. Nevertheless, if people consider the negative cost, which is caused by global warming, this result might be different. Various solutions like planting trees, and finding alternative energy resources might be helpful to fight global
People to this day still doubt the validity of human’s contribution to climate change or even its existence. However much progress has been made since the 90’s both in tools and research. Much of this doubt likely comes from simply misunderstanding what climate change means. People confuse weather for climate. Weather is daily in one place.
The Earth’s climate is constantly changing and evolving along with everything else on earth. However it is a very gradual process, or so it should be. In the recent centuries there has been a drastic change is the earth’s climate that should not be ignored. Climate Change is a very controversial topic in society right now. Some even dare to argue that it’s only a theory.
Evidence to support that humans are the main reason for global warming is in the book “Global Warming and the Political Ecology of Health” when the text states “The sheer volume of mounting data of diverse sorts has convinced most climate scientists that the global warming, that it is increasingly threatening to human life and well-being, and that it is largely the result of human or anthropogenic activities, particularly since the Industrial Revolution” (Baer/Singer, 3). This means that human ‘activities’ are causing global temperatures to rise, along with the burning of fossil fuels, pollutants in the air, and power/transportation. Most people nowadays have a high carbon footprint that collectively contributes greatly to rising temperatures. To support this,in the book “Global Warming and the Political Ecology of Health”, the authors site from Dessler and Parson, saying that “Many aspects of human society and well-being- where we live, how we build, how we move around, how we earn our livings, what we do for recreation- still depend on a relatively benign reduced and obscured in modern industrial societies by their wealth and technology”(Baer/Singer, 3). This can support the claim that humans are the main cause for global warming temperatures to rise dramatically in the past years.
Mankind has abused nature for far too long and would pay a heavy price unless urgent remedial measures are undertaken. The aim of this document is to take a look at the measures already taken by mankind to reduce the effects of climate change and also suggest additional measure which could be taken by countries around the world after analyzing the current scenario. Author: Commitee on Ecological Impacts of Climate Change Document name: Ecological Impacts of Climate Change Pg 13 Chapters reviewed What exactly is climate change? How does it occur? Climate change can be defined as a change in global or regional climate patterns, in particular a change apparent from the mid to late 20th century onwards and attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels.c Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic eruptions.
Since the revolution of the industry, human activities was increasing day by day, during this period, cultivated land, natural resources, forest resources and various raw material is breaking up by human, so as result of that, a lot of greenhouse gases was released and this lead to global warming (Huang & Li, 2015). Human and natural activities are the main causes of global warming which have serious effects on human health and agriculture. Global warming can be caused by human activities, for example, combustion of fossil fuels and cutting down forests. Since the beginning of the Revolution of the Industry, these human impact on atmosphere framework has expanded. These activities change the area surface and emit different substances to climate.
The main cause for this problem is the rapid widespread of industrialization and the growth in population worldwide. In this essay, global issues in relation to climate change will be discussed mainly with the view to the concerns that effect the environment. The majority of global issues have a link to the climate, for example the basic needs such as food, water, health, and shelter. Factors that lead to climate change may affect these needs with increased temperatures, sea level rise, changes in precipitation, and more frequent or intense extreme events. Each group in society will be affected differently by climate change.
IMPACTS OF GLOBAL WARMING ON THE ENVIRONMENT SLINDILE.C MAZIBUKO 215011983 UNIVERSITY OF KWAZULU NATAL WESTVILLE CAMPUS DURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA ABSTRACT One of the biggest problems facing the world today is global warming. It is evident that there is climate change around the world. In recent years, we have so many unusual hurricanes, typhoons, floods, droughts and earthquakes. Plants and animals that lived in the cold climates are now disappearing. Many scientists believe that our production of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases is having a heat effect on the atmosphere and this could be dangerous for the environment and human life (Hansen, 2011).
