    are the reason it had a cooling effect on the earth. That brings back the tie between the chemicals we emit from cars and large factories and other things, because we as humans have put so much of these greenhouse gasses it has had a warming effect on the earth the way they do in normal greenhouses. Disproving the idea that what humans do does not have a cause on the earth's overall rise in average temperature. The arguments made in this paper show great evidence supporting human involvement in…

    production of greenhouse gasses. Agricultural activities cannot be ignored. Logging of trees to increase land for farming has resulted in a reduction of trees, which are crucial in the reduction of carbon (IV) oxide. Increase expenditure on fertilizers, vast ranches of animals and rice paddies have ultimately led to climate change through emitting greenhouse gasses (Lallanilla, 2015).Home appliances such as fridge, fun, and aerosols produce CFCs, which leads, plays a part in increasing the…

    into the atmosphere when we burn fossil fuels’ oil, coal, and natural gas to generate electricity, power our vehicles and heat our homes. Human activities produce greenhouse gases and these gases are the key causes of climate change. The greenhouse effect works like this: Energy arrives from the sun in the form of visible light and ultraviolet radiation. The Earth then emits some of this energy as infrared radiation. Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere absorbs some of this heat, then re-emit it…

    enough to hold carbon dioxide emissions below dangerous levels in the long run (McGraw-Hill, 2014). For a more realistic solution, there is a developing technology aimed at slowing the rate of carbon dioxide emissions in order to capture and isolate the gas after combustion. This technology is known as carbon capture and storage (CCS). It involves separating carbon dioxide from other…

    showed that 2014 is the warmest year in all the earth’s history (Rice). The release of harmful greenhouse gasses that are trapped into our atmosphere is the mainspring of our planet extremely heating. Professor Michael Daley states: “Gas molecules that absorb thermal infrared radiation, and are in significant enough quantity, can force the climate system. These type of gas molecules are called greenhouse gases” (Lallanila). For many years now, global climate change and global warming has been a…

    community. Sadly, this is not a viable opportunity if we continue to ignore the pressing issue of global warming. Global warming is defined as “the gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth’s atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and other pollutants” (“Global Warming”). In simpler terms, it is the warming of our atmosphere due to the pollution created by humans. Global warming presents a…
