An increase in the earth’s average temperature is called global warming. It is an adaptation that is believed to be permanently changing the earth 's climate. Many scientists are trying to prove that how and why there is an increase in the earth’s temperature. Many greenhouse gases, and other human activities are considered to be the foremost cause of global warming. It is really clear that we are not taking a good care of our nature, on which we are dependent. From food, water and even the air we respire we are totally dependent on the nature. But we pollute the same water we drink, and damage the same air we need to respire. We human think that using of chemical fertilizers will make our crops healthy and hygienic, unaware of the fact that, …show more content…
Gases like carbon dioxide, neon and ozone have risen the earth’s normal temperature, and this change is called the greenhouse effect. In the atmosphere, there are certain gases, such as methane, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxides, and water vapor, which reflect the heat back to earth. Because of this process earth can maintain a suitable temperature. The average temperature on earth would be very low if this radiation is not trapped; as a result of life would not be as it is today. In this way, these greenhouse gases are very important for the survival of the living organisms on earth. But too much of something is not fine, and the excess of these greenhouse gases, chiefly carbon dioxide, in our atmosphere is damaging to life and the habitat. Carbon dioxide alone has risen the earth’s temperature about 1 degree Fahrenheit per year. Although this may not be a huge increase, but the consequences it leaves on our environment and the organisms that live in, are harmful and life-threatening. Getting used to this kind of sudden change would be difficult for numerous plant and animal …show more content…
Trees play a significant role in order to remove carbon dioxide. They are known as the largest land-based mechanism for removing carbon dioxide from the environment. The consequences of cutting and burning a million acres of trees each year increase carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Every day almost a thousand acres of rainforest are destroyed in a result of deforestation. As a result of massive loss of forests, the carbon dioxide level has risen approximately 0.7 percent each year (National Geographic). Humans are living in an age where they can find an abundance of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, released through their own inventions, such as factories, and power plants. Additional carbon dioxide in the atmosphere results in the sun 's radiation to be reflected back to earth instead of outer space, and this causes the normal temperature of the earth to rise. In this way, deforestation is a serious problem when it comes to global
