Global warming is the process in which the Earth’s temperature starts increasing. This happens because industry, fossil fuels, agricultural processes caused by human, natural, and other gas emissions, this factors increase greenhouse gases, greenhouse gases are made up of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide. The greenhouse gases stay in the atmosphere and prevent the suns warming rays to leave the Earth. So the sun’s warming rays stay inside the Earth increasing its average temperature. Global warming isn’t the end of the world, it’s just a natural process in which the Earth cleans or rinse organisms.
Now a days the Automobiles, heat from homes and businesses, and factories are responsible for about 80% of today's carbon dioxide…show more content…
Lastly many bodies of water become polluted thanks to all the gasses in the atmosphere that mix with the clouds and fall as acid rain polluting rivers, and lakes and killing many animals. All of theses factors change our daily life and can ruin whole species, and all of this is because of temperature changes.
Many scientific methods of controlling or lowering the Earth’s temperature are being researched; these can also be called geoengineering. Geoengineering is a method in which scientists can change the levels of greenhouse gases directly or indirectly. Also there could be methods that prevent greenhouse gasses to be emitted. There have never been any geoengineering solutions done on a global scale since it has to be almost proof less. But there have been some ideas that are being use on a small scale like the iron fertilization; this is a process in which iron is injected into the oceans to speed up the reproduction of plankton which breath carbon dioxide and emit oxygen, this is one solution that seems to have the least side effects thanks to the reason I just presented and also due to that plankton are the base of many marine animals food chain. So this method is being widely researched to see if it can be done on a global scale. Not only is lowering the levels of gases in the air important, but also lowering the level of gases we emit, and there have been many scientific breakthroughs like solar energy or cars that run

Global warming is the increase in the earth’s atmospheric temperature. Naturally occurring gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone and water vapor trap heat from the sun, preventing it from leaving the atmosphere. These naturally occurring gases along with human made hydro fluorocarbons (HFCs), per fluorocarbons (PFCs), and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) are collectively known as greenhouse gases. This essay will explain why global warming is fast becoming a cause for concern and why preventative measures are being taken.
Global warming is caused by many things but the most common way is electrical pollution. While greenhouse gases occur naturally and keep the planet warm enough to sustain life, the excess gases produced by…show more content…
Climate change effects oceans, rainforests and other ecosystems.
Many species of plants and animals have felt the negative effects of global warming and climate change. Mass deforestation has destroyed many habitats and caused extinction or endangered many flora and fauna. For example, the kiwi is now a protected species because humans have destroyed their habitat through deforestation. Not only does deforestation destroy habitats, it also depletes the amount of trees that would absorb carbon dioxide. The oceans are the most threatened of ecosystems. The only pristine areas of ocean can be found under polar ice caps while the worst ecosystems are near coasts hit heavily by land pollution, over fishing, oil and gas exploration and climate change. The melting of the polar ice caps endanger arctic species such as the polar bear, narwhals, certain species of seals, seabirds such as auks and ivory gulls, the walrus and species of algae that grow in the ocean. Algae are a main food source for many ocean species and its depletion will have a negative effect on the food web. Global warming has become a real concern over the past few years, causing nations to start taking precautions.
Climate change is a global issue therefore the world’s nations have combined in their efforts to protect the planet from further depreciation. The most effective summit was held in Kyoto, Japan where the United Nations passed a treaty that involves a commitment by all
