Global Warming is when the temperature rises and the earth heats up. It happens when green house gases, i.e. Carbon dioxide, water vapour, Nitrous Oxide and Methane, catch heat and light from the sun in the earth environment, which increases the temperature. The increase in temperatures causes a lot of destruction especially to living things, that is, animal, human beings and plants. This paper is going to deal with causes of Global warming, the effects of Global Warming, and what can be done to stop Global Warming or as well to reduce its effects.
What causes Global Warming
Global Warming is caused by many stuff and here are some of the causes of Global Warming. One thing that causes global warming is electrical toxic waste. Electricity causes toxic waste in many ways, some worse than others. In most cases, fossil fuels are burned to produce electricity. Fossil fuels are made of dead plants and animals. Some examples of fossil fuels are oil and petroleum. Many pollutants are sent into the air when fossil fuels are burned. Some of these chemicals are called greenhouse gasses. When we use these sources of energy, for example Petroleum which is used in transportation, more Green house gases are sent into the air, and with too many greenhouse gasses in the air, the earth??™s atmosphere will entrap too much heat and the earth will get too hot. As a consequence people, animals, and plants would die because the heat would be too strong.
Another thing that causes Global Warming is when Garbage are being burnt This sends an huge amount of greenhouse gasses into the air and makes global warming worse.
Cutting down of trees also causes Global Warming. Trees and other plants collect carbon dioxide (CO2), which is a greenhouse gas. Carbon dioxide is the air that our body lets out when we breathe. With fewer trees, it is harder for people to breathe because there is more CO2 in the air, and we don??™t breathe CO2, we breathe oxygen. Plants collect the CO2 that we breathe out, and they give back oxygen that we breathe in. With fewer trees and other plants, such as algae, there is less air for us, and more greenhouse gases are sent into the air. This means that it is very important to protect our trees to stop the greenhouse effect.
In conclusion, Global Warming has a lot of effects to living things, as discussed above it is caused by the rise of temperatures due to a lot of Green house gases in the air which traps a lot of heat. Reduction of Green house gases in the air can greatly reduce Global Warming thus minimizing its effects.
