Causes Of Global Warming

.Since 1880 world’s average temperature have climbed 1.4 degrees fahrenheit. There has been an consent between our scientific society that global warming is not simply a theory. Global warming is the biggest environmental issue we are facing today as a greatest challenge. Our earth surface is becoming hotter day by day just because of some unnoticeable habits of human beings all across the world ..Global warming is a serious issue, which is caused by various human activities and other numerous reasons.

Firstly, it took more than 20 years to broadly accept that mankind is causing global warming with the emission of greenhouse gases (“The Carbon Dioxide Greenhouse Effect”, 2015). Greenhouse

More people means more consumption of fossil fuel, which means more carbon dioxide. Rapid population growth has an inferior impact on human development, provision of basic services and poverty eradication; these effects are magnified and become more urgent in the context of climate change. Nowadays everyone keeps a refrigerator in their house for their daily use . These refrigerators produce a harmful gas called chlorofluorocarbon , which cause depletion of the ozone layer. Ozone layer absorbs ultraviolet radiations , and helps to keep the earth temperature normal. Chemicals used to replace CFCs, such as hydrochlorofluorocarbons and hydrofluorocarbons, which are now widely used in automobile and domestic air conditioning systems, may be an added source of global warming (Natalee ,n.d). More immigration to cities is also resulting in more cooking of food , which releases more carbon dioxide in the air. According to new research Under current conditions, a child born in the United States will be responsible for almost seven times the carbon emissions of a child born in China and 168 times the impact of a child born in Bangladesh (Feldstein, …show more content…

    Kyle Duggan Mr. Kinnear English 10 5 June 2017 Global Warming, is it valid or a hoax? There are many things happening and changing on Earth, that some people think are invalid. Global warming is one of the major problems that has been brought up in the 21st century. Global warming is the general rise in temperatures around the globe, generally due to the greenhouse effect. Many scientist believe that human production of greenhouse gasses and carbon dioxide are the cause of this great problem facing the world today.…

    Some believe that it is a natural cycle that the temperatures rise and fall every few years. Though this could be plausible, records show that humans are the main cause in the increasing global temperatures. Rather than the climate fluctuating from natural events like solar variations, the temperatures have been increasing due to human actions such as burning fossil fuels (Bertrand). Others believe that this is all “God’s plan.” “[…] This world is made for humans to use and exploit to our own ends, that this world isn 't made to last anyway, and that in fact destruction of this world and its environment are not only inevitable but in fact sort of linked to the return of Jesus Christ and the ultimate victory of Christians over forces opposed to them and their God” (Hughes). All people are entitled to their own beliefs and opinions, but this one appears confusing.…

    PART A- Global warming is the term we use for the gradual increase in the average temperature at the Earth’s surface that has occurred over the past century or so. There are a number of factors that cause global warming, for example climate change, melting glaciers and rising sea levels are all consequences of global warming. Climate change can occur over a number of years, so if there is a large increase in the number of hot summers, this is most likely a sign of climate change. If a pattern keeps occurring it may start to impact on other places in the world. The scientific concepts that are related to global warming are that the increase of global temperature have cause a number of other changes around the world.…

    When greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide absorb heat, it traps the heat and keeps it in our atmosphere. An increase in greenhouse gases also leads to an increase in average temperature. Even small increases in our average temperature could mean a lot of damage. Only about 9 degrees fahrenheit, a small change, ended the last ice age. (Shuster, 583) More temperature change could bring about even more environmental changes.…

    Divesting means getting rid of stocks, bonds, or investment funds so that the fossil fuel industry decreases in size and instead, we can increase the investment in energy sources such as solar, wind and hydro that don’t release as much greenhouse gas into the atmosphere. I believe that it is important to reduce CO2 emissions to ensure the sustainability of our planet for us and future generations so that they can have the same or better quality of life.

    David Newell English 102 Butler A Public Turn One definition of climate change is any “lasting changes to a region’s climate, such as differences in average temperature, precipitation, or wind patterns over the course of decades or centuries”. Global warming, however, generally refers to the climatic changes induced by human activity since industrialization (Newell). Climate change has always existed, but until recently it has been a natural process, affected by many factors including solar output, volcanic activity, feedback systems, and Earth’s axis, composition, and reflectivity. Throughout the history of the Earth these factors have influenced ecosystems tremendously, changing oceans to deserts to mountains (“Causes..”). Over the last…
