Global warming

Updated: Nov 20, 2019

Global warming has become a huge environmental issue; therefore it has become indispensable to increase awareness and knowledge about it among the general public all over the world. Global warming can be referred to as climate change that causes an increase in the average temperature. However, global warming is caused by natural events and human that is believed to contribute to increases in average temperature. Global warming is a severe issue and is not a single issue but many environmental issues. Global warming is an increase in the surface temperature of the earth that has transformed various life forms on the earth. The problems that cause global warming are divided into two categories include natural and human influences of global warming.The global warming occurs due to the natural rotation of the sun that turns the power of sunlight and moving nearer to the earth. Another reason for global warming is greenhouse gases. Carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide are the greenhouse gases which traps the solar heat rays and prevents it from emerging from the surface of the earth. This has caused the temperature of the earth to rise. Volcanic eruptions is one of another issue that causes global warming. For example, a single volcanic eruption will release the enormous amount of carbon dioxide and ash to the atmosphere. Once carbon dioxide rises, the temperature of earth increase and greenhouse trap the solar radiations in the earth. Methane is also a greenhouse gas which is another issue that causes global warming. Methane is more effective in trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide by 20 times.Human Impacts On Global Warming.It is a fact that humans do not take care of the earth; therefore, human influence has been a severe issue now. A human that causes global warming is more dangerous than natural causes of global warming. Human activities that cause global warming include industrial production, burning fossil fuel, mining, cattle rearing or deforestation. To run their power machines, industries have been using fossil fuels. Everything that we use is involved in fossil fuels. Besides industries, transportation's such as cars and other vehicles are also releasing carbon dioxide from the exhaust.The methane gas will get trap below the earth during the process of mining. Besides, rearing cattle will also cause methane because the cattle released the form of manure. However, cattle is essential because it makes the latter equally responsible for the occurrence of global warming.Since ages humans have been cutting down trees to produce wood, papers, build houses or more. If human beings continue deforestation, carbon dioxide will concentrate in the atmosphere because trees can take in carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
