Environmental Factors: The Causes Of Global Warming


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…
