We Are The Main Causes Of Climate Change

Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of the weather patterns. The changes are lasting for an extended period of time (It could be between a hundred or thousand years). The climate change is cause by both natural and human factors. In human factors, mainly due to the industrial revolution since the human activities, especially in the industrialized process of developed countries caused by economic activities, fossil fuel combustion and deforestation, land-use change and other human-induced greenhouse gas emissions led to a significant increase in atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations. Between 1906 and 2005, the global temperature increased by 0.74°C. The scientists who from IPCC(Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) …show more content…
However, according to research, global temperature is increasing. Greenhouse gases are one of the causes for climate change. It is like a blanket around the Earth, trapping energy in the atmosphere and causing it to warm. Human activities have released large amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. According to the report from US Senate Minority Environment and Public Works Committee, about 50% carbon dioxide emissions that was caused by human activities has already re-absorbed by the nature system (2007). Such as 26% carbon dioxide emissions have re-absorbed by ocean. National Academy of Sciences published a research believe the carbon dioxide concentration increase is propitious to the forests growth rates. However, since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution (taken as the year 1750) has produced a 40% increase in the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide, from 280 ppm in 1750 to 400 ppm in 2015. Anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions (emissions produced by human activities) come from combustion of carbon-based fuels, principally coal, oil, and natural gas, along with deforestation, soil erosion and animal agriculture. The nature system is impossible completely re-absorbed all of carbon dioxide. There are some climate changes that are unavoidable and nothing can be done about it. For example, carbon dioxide can stay in the atmosphere for almost a century, so the Earth will continue to warm in the future. The increase in CO2 concentration may be beneficial to certain plant species, while suppressing other plant species, while altering plant community structure; and rising sea water will also affect the ecology of coastal plant
