Global warming or climate change is the gradual increase of Earth’s temperature over time, through the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is the rising carbon level in the atmosphere, trapping radiation, and heating the Earth. Humans are depending on fossil fuels that release these emissions. Though we have increasingly started depending on renewable resources that don’t release these harmful gases into the atmosphere, we can already see the effects today and if this doesn’t stop now the planet will be destroyed. The human intervention that people have depended on with the environment is destroying the Earth. Some people want to do nothing, but if they do nothing then that is how they will be remembered in history, the person who did nothing. Greenhouse gases are probably the worst cause of global warming and it is being released by humans every day. Water vapor, ozone, carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide are all greenhouse gases (National Geographic). These gases are naturally present in the atmosphere, but the overloaded amount of emissions by humans have caused an increase of the gases in the atmosphere. Examples of greenhouse producers include cars, factories, and electricity productions. These gases trap heat in the atmosphere and cause the increase of temperature all over the Earth, but we can stop this. We can cut back on these emissions by switching to renewable resources and halting these greenhouse gas emitters for good.
