What is global warming?
global warming is the rice in the average temperature over Earth’s atmosphere and ocean since the late 19th century and its projected continuation as known (Green House Effect).
Since the Industrial Revolution, the global annual temperature has increased in total by a little more than 1 degree Celsius,or about 2 degrees Fahrenheit. Between 1880—the year that accurate recordkeeping began—and 1980, it rose on average by 0.07 degrees Celsius (0.13 degrees Fahrenheit) every 10 years. Since 1981, however, the rate of increase has more than doubled
How we discovered the global warming problem?
Svante Arrhenius Swedish physicist, chemist, and Nobel Prize winner, who put the story together.
is the first person to figure out that putting (CO2) into the atmosphere could make the earth warmer but the prevailing with all the times is that there is an infallible balance of nature which no human actions
What causes global warming?
Global warming occurs when carbon dioxide (CO2) and other air pollutants collect in the atmosphere and absorb sunlight and solar radiation that have bounced off the earth’s surface.
Normally this radiation would escape into space, but these pollutants, which can last for years to centuries in the atmosphere, trap the heat and cause the planet to get hotter.
These heat-trapping pollutants—specifically carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, water vapor, and synthetic fluorinated gases—are known as greenhouse gases, and their impact is called the greenhouse effect.
Humans have increased the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere by more than a third since the Industrial Revolution.
What are the other effects of global warming?
Global warming doesn’t mean only rising average temperatures but there many effects extreme weather events,
- shifting wildlife populations and habitats
- Glaciers melting
- sea levels are rising
- cloud forests are dying
All of those changes are emerging as humans continue to add heat-trapping greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, changing the rhythms of climate that all living things have come to rely on.
Does Global warming matter?
scientists believe that climate change could lead to the deaths of more than 250,000 people around the globe every year and force 100 million people into poverty by 2030.
How We Can Stop Global Warming?
There many solutions but the most important and main target is to reduce the percent of CO2, So we can suggest some of these solutions such as:
- Choose a walkable life and reduce the driving so less pollution in the air and less money spent on fuel.
- Power our home with renewable energy.
- Offset the carbon you produce by purchasing carbon offsets, which represent clean power that you can add to the nation’s energy grid in place of power from fossil fuels. But not all carbon offset companies are alike. Do your homework to find the best supplier.
- Drive a fuel-efficient vehicle: Gas-smart cars, such as hybrids and fully electric vehicles, save fuel and money.
- Reduce water waste: Saving water reduces carbon pollution, too. That’s because it takes a lot of energy to pump, heat, and treat your water.
