    Earth's surface (“global warming”). Global warming is all about adverse climate change caused by the trapping of greenhouse gases in the earth's atmosphere that affects biodiversity and poses a serious health hazard. Scientists have found strong evidence that human activities have caused most of the warming since the mid-1900 (“global warming”). Humans are responsible for

    Greenhouse Gases are types of gases that take heat escaping from the atmosphere and send it back to Earth. According to NASA, the Earth’s average temperature would be approximately 0 degrees Fahrenheit—as opposed to today’s average 60 degrees Fahrenheit—without the naturally occurring Greenhouse Gases. This is because of the Greenhouse Effect. Gases like Carbon Dioxide and Methane are able to take heat and emit it back towards the Earth, thus giving them the name “Greenhouse Gas” (“What are greenhouse

    “By saving energy in industrial production through recycling, the greenhouse gas emissions from factories and industrial plants are lessened and the use of fuels that emit harmful gases during production is also minimized. Recycling non-biodegradable waste (rather than burning it) will contribute a lot to help reduce air pollution and greenhouse gases that depletes the ozone layer,” stated in the article, Benefits of Recycling (2015). One way to eliminate

    I read that methane is an even worse greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, and cattle are a big source of methane emissions. How are they going to regulate that? Not just cattle, but dairy cows as well! That doubles the worry. Fortunately, there is really nothing to worry about, scientifically. The main thing to worry about is over-reacting politicians and another layer of unnecessary government regulations. To understand methane’s role in the atmosphere, first it’s necessary to understand what

Studies have shown that there has been a decrease in freezing during the cold season and an increase in the thawing of permafrost, which suggests that more permafrost is melting seasonally instead of staying permanently frozen. Therefore, if a warming climate leads to the melting of permafrost, then the organic matter in it thaws out and decays, releasing the
