  • Greenhouse Effect Essay

    Burning of fossil fuels such as oil and coals will emit a large concentration of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Then again, the cycle continues where carbon dioxide causes an increase in the global temperature. This then leads to global warming. Although this activity does not occur at all parts of the world, it still affects the entire world when there…

    air. As the molecular mass of air, 28.8g, is higher than the molecular mass of nitrogen, 28g, the mass mixing ratio would be lower than the volume mixing ratio. a) m=F/a m=101300/9.8=10,336 An estimate of the total mass of a column of the atmosphere with a base area of 1m2 is 10,336kg. b) for a 1m2 column at average surface pressure of 985mb: m= 98500/9.8=10,051 kg Surface area of the Earth: 4π (6370)^2=509,904,363.8 =5.1 x 〖10〗^8 〖km〗^2 =5.1 x 〖10〗^14 m^2 5.1x〖10〗^(14 ) x…

    dioxide have increased 40% in the past 80,000 years and contribute the decreasing atmosphere that humans rely on to stay protected from space’s harsh environment (How are humans responsible for global warming?). The invention of paper launched the depletion of trees. Trees are necessary for humans and other animals to live from releasing oxygen for us to breath and absorb the carbon dioxide that damage the atmosphere (How are humans responsible for global warming?). Greg Seaman proposes…

    nitrous oxide (citation). Carbon dioxide is the most important, as it accounts for eighty percent of total greenhouse gas emissions. Agreed on by scientists, the climate’s warming is essentially due to the abundant amount of carbon put into the atmosphere by humans (citation). This gas results from burning fossil fuels and brushland for agriculture, wood fires used for cooking, the cutting/burning of forests, and producing cement (citation). Almost one-third of the carbon pollution in the United…

  • Global Warming Can Lead To Global Climate Change

    humans have had the knowledge that climate changes are possible, and can happen from atmosphere variations as Fourier calculated in 1824, which can lead to the Earth becoming far colder. Additionally, the industrial revolution lead to “coal, railroads, and land clearing”, which lead to increase greenhouse gas emission. According to the Global Climate Change web page, “greenhouse gases trap heat in the atmosphere, which makes the Earth warmer.” The gases that constitute the greenhouse gases are…
