Global warming have literally been the hottest topic in the news for years. Global warming is the rise in temperature near the earth’s surface. Is global warming the result of humans or natural phenomenons? Let me put some facts on the table for you then you can decide for yourself.
Global warming is not anything new. It have been in existence since the formation of the atmosphere. Let me explain how this whole global warming thing works. Heat is reflected back to the planet causing a rise in temperature. This happens because more heat from the sun is being trapped on earth due to the increase level of gases in the atmosphere.
Even though you may not realize this, but we fuel this fire everyday with normal activities. We burn fossil fuels, cut down trees, and drive cars, and list goes on. How can we save our planet from further damage? We can conserve water, plant trees, reduce the use of fossil fuels, and recycle to limit the effects of global warming.
Are there a connection between global warming and the extreme weather conditions we have had across the world? Mother Nature control these events, from erupting volcanos, to melting glaciers, from tropical hurricanes and to wildfires. All of these things are total out of our control and can be very dangerous. Every one of these events are results of climate change and temperature fluctuations. Volcanoes produce sulphur dioxide which prevents sunlight from getting to the earth surface. Rising temperatures causes glaciers to melt which will cause flooding. Warmer temperatures produces stronger hurricanes. Hotter dry temperatures cause droughts and generate wildfires. I believe meteorologist will have a much harder time predicting the weather in the future due to natural phenomenons effecting global warming.
Many scientist are convinced that global warming is caused by humans. They stress that burning coal, oil and gas thickens and enhance the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere causing it to retain more heat. So what’s your thoughts? Is global warming from natural causes or is it manmade? In my opinion, finding a solution for global warming is like predicting when the world is going end. Some things are just simply out of our control, but we can do our part by going green. The existence of global warming will never be able to be eliminated, but we can work together to help slow down the process.
