What can each of us do to stop global warming –
Global warming is one of the dangerous causes for living on earth. Global warming is faced by every human being living on earth and nature. It creates in balance in the environment.
Meaning- slow rises the earth’s temperature is called global warming. In other words global warming is a phenomenon where the earth’s average temperature rises due to increased in the amount of green house effect. Green house gases such as carbon, methane, zone trap the incoming, radiation, from the sun. This creates a natural ‘blanket’ which prevents the heat from escaping back into the atmosphere. This effect is called green house effect.
Contrary to proper belief, green house gases are not in a adequate. In fact the green house effect is quite important for life on earth. Without this effect, the sun radiation would be reflected back into the atmosphere, freezing the surface and making life impossible.
Moreover when greenhouse gases are in excess amount it get trapped, serious spotted cushion begins to appear. The polar ice caps are beginning to melt leading to rise in sea levels. Further the green house effect accelerate where polar ice caps and sea ice melts. This is because the ice reflects 50% to 70% of the sun rays back into the space, but without ice, the solar radiation gets absorbed. Sea water only reflects 6% of the sun radiation back into space. What’s more frightening is the fact that the poles contain large amount of carbon dioxide trapped within the ice. If this ice melts, it will significantly contribute to global warming.
Causes- greenhouse effects cause the earth’s temperature to rise. Burning of fossil fuels for electricity, running of vehicles etc. running of factories produces tones of toxic fumes which add to global warming. Deforestation is a leading cause of global warming as it enables more carbon dioxide to remain suspended in the atmosphere. These are the main causes of global warming.
Ways to stop global warming- we can save 2,400 pounds of carbon dioxide per year by recycling only half of our house hold waste. We can save near about one pound of carbon dioxide for every mile if we don’t drive. We have to simply turn off our electrical devices such as television, DVD players etc. when we are not using them With this we can save thousands of pounds of carbon dioxide a year.
To control global warming every body should take steps to plant trees every where and avoid cutting of trees.
If people do not practice very well in lowering carbon emissions, rules and regulations are effective for forest and agriculture management. Then it is not easy to stop problems regarding global warming.
The solutions for this issue will be more effective when individuals change their lifestyle.
