Climate change refers to the change in weather patterns, which lasts for a long period of time. There are various factors causing the change in average weather conditions, such as plate tectonics, solar radiation, and volcanic activities. Recent climate changes, often refers to global warming, are believed to be significantly caused by certain human activates (What is, 2014).
The melting glaciers are definitely effect by global warming. Scientists estimate that glaciers around the world are losing 92 cubic-kilometers of ice each year, and it is a very remarkable loss in glacier cover. Glaciers stores water as ice in the winter, and melt during summer. There is a natural balance between the amount of water stored, and the amount ice melted. Yet, due to the raise of average temperature, it is difficult to store …show more content…
Placing a price or tax on carbon pollution would be a possible and efficient solution to limit and prohibit the emissions (Carbon, 2014). Also, increasing the efficiency of energy use can also play a major role in fighting against global warming. Any individual can participate in increasing energy-efficiency by changing the light blub, use natural lighting during the day, and use public transportation.
The most recent global temperature increase is due to various human-influenced factors. The combustion of fossil fuels is the main contributor to it, alone with deforestation, and modern agriculture. Glacier melt is a outcome of global warming that has lots of consequences, such as the release of ancient toxin stored in ice shield, earthquakes, and decrease in water quality. The consequences are all results of past or present hazardous human-activities, and therefore human will have the responsibilities to attempt to change, minimize, or reverse the negative impact of global warming on both human and the
