Global Warming will change all life on earth, if we do not act soon.
Global Warming is a change in Earth’s temperature it occurs when “Carbon dioxide and other global warming pollutants are collecting in the atmosphere like a thickening blanket, trapping the sun 's heat and causing the planet to warm up.” As many suspect, Earth is being greatly affected by climate change/global warming. According to a report by Linkoping University in Sweden, “Global Warming will progress faster that what was previously believed.” The reason behind this is that the warming of the earth affects the progress of natural Greenhouse gas emissions like Methane. “Methane” a Greenhouse gas acts as a thermal blanket. When sunlight passes through the atmosphere and warms the earth’s surface the heat is rebounded back into space. Most of the outgoing heat absorbed by greenhouse gas molecules and redirected in all directions. Some of it returning to earth to warm the surface and the lower atmosphere again, this steadily increases Earth’s temperature. Some Methane and other…
