  • Global Warming Can Lead To Global Climate Change

    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 carbon dioxide,…

  • Cause And Negative Effects Of The Earth's Atmosphere

    atmosphere and so many theories were made up for why this was so. However, as life evolved, oxygen became abundant. Today, oxygen and nitrogen makes up the largest volume of gases in the Earth’s atmosphere with 78.09% and 20.95% respectively and consist of trace gases. Trace gases makes up less than 1%, example of a trace gases…

  • How Do Human Activities Affect Climate Change

    global warming? To understand global warming better, we need to better understand greenhouse effect and greenhouse gases. So, what is the greenhouse effect? Greenhouse Effect is the trapping of the sun’s heat in a planet’s lower atmosphere, due to the transparency of the atmosphere to visible radiation from the sun than to infrared radiation emitted from the surface. Some greenhouse gases that cause global warming are water vapor, ozone, carbon dioxide, and methane. Now that we know what the…

  • Global Warming: Cause And Effects Of The Greenhouse Effect

    atmosphere of the Earth, some of the energy is reflected back to space and green house gases radiate the remainder. The energy, which is absorbed, allows life on earth by keeping the earth temperature at around 33 degrees Celsius warmer than it would be. The green house gases include water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and other artificial chemicals such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). The primary gases involved in the green house effect are methane, water vapor (most import) and…

  • An Essay On Greenhouse Effect

    The greenhouse effect is a naturally occurring process within our atmosphere, it aids in heating the earths surface and atmosphere. The greenhouse affect is caused by the fact that certain atmospheric gases, gases such as carbon dioxide, water vapour and methane are able to change the energy balance of the planet by absorbing long wave radiation emitted from earth’s surface. Without the greenhouse affect our earth would be a chilly -18°C in comparison to the present average temperature of 15°C.…

    average surface temperature due to effect of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels or from deforestation, which trap heat that would otherwise escape from Earth” (“ What is Global…”, n.d.). There is a major difference between global warming and greenhouse gases. The greenhouse effect is a natural process in earth’s atmosphere that maintains the average surface temperature. It is caused by certain gases such as water vapor, ozone (O3), carbon dioxide (CO2),…

  • Silent Spring By Rachel Carson: What Is Meteorology?

    learned about fossil fuels, greenhouse gases such as, carbon dioxide, methane, water vapor and nitrous oxide and more. We can confirm that with the burning of fossil fuel, humans increase the levels of greenhouse gases causing the earth and its atmosphere to heat up. Results of global warming and climate change can show that weather pattern are effected. We humans are creating a domino effect, starting with unnatural chemicals, fossil fuels, greenhouse gases, and weather change. Who knows where…
