Global warming is a big issue of the atmosphere on the

earth which cause continuous rise in the surface


temperature of the Earth. It has been estimated that in
next 50 or 100 year the temperature of earth would be
increased to a great level which would create big problem
of living on earth. The highly known and most basic cause
of increasing the Earths temperature is continuous rise in
the atmospheric carbon dioxide.
Rise in the carbon dioxide level is the use fossil fuels like
coal and oil, deforestation (cut down of plants) by the
human beings on Earth. Decreasing number of the plants
on the earth increases the level of carbon dioxide, as
plants are the main source of the using carbon dioxide
released by the human being (as a by-product of
respiration) and other means. Increasing level of Earths
temperature creates lots of problems like sea level
becomes hotter and higher, glaciers melt, flood, strong
storms, lack of food, diseases, death, etc.
Global warming is a steady process of continuous rise in the level of Earth
temperature. Global warming has become one of the biggest problems faced
by the world now. It is believed that increasing level of carbon dioxide gas and
other greenhouse gases on the earth are the main reasons of heating the
atmosphere of earth. If it is not noticed and solved immediately by the efforts
of all countries worldwide, it would boom its effects and cause end of life on
the earth a day.
Its threatening effects are increasing day by day and creating danger for
human life. Global warming is the main and only reason of rising sea level,
flooding, changes in weather patterns, storms, cyclone, epidemic diseases,
lack of food, death, etc. The only solution to solve the issue of global warming
is the individual level social awareness. People must be aware of its meaning,
cause, bad effects and other things about global warming to get it eradicated
from worldwide and make the possibilities of life on earth forever as usual.
The average global temperature has risen 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.8
degrees Celsius) since 1880, according to NASA. Temperatures are projected to
rise another 2 degrees to 11.5 degrees F (1.13 degrees to 6.42 degrees C) over
the next 100 years, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA). Green house effect is the main cause of it.
The major natural greenhouse gases are water vapor, which causes about
36-70% of the greenhouse effect on Earth (not including clouds); carbon
dioxide CO2, which causes 9-26%; methane, which causes 4-9%, and ozone,
which causes 3-7%. It is not possible to state that a certain gas causes a
certain percentage of the greenhouse effect, because the influences of the
various gases are not additive. Other greenhouse gases include, but are not
limited to, nitrous oxide, sulfur hexafluoride, hydro fluro carbons, per fluro
carbons and chlorofluorocarbons
Extreme weather is another effect of global
warming. While experiencing some of the hottest
summers on record, much of the United States has
also been experiencing colder-than-normal winters.
One of the most immediate and obvious
effects of global warming is the increase
in temperatures around the world. The
average global temperature has
increased by about 1.4 degrees
Fahrenheit (0.8 degrees Celsius) over
the past 100 years, according to the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA).
The effects of global warming on
the Earth's ecosystems are expected
to be profound and widespread.
Many species of plants and animals
are already moving their range
northward or to higher altitudes as
a result of warming temperatures
Sea levels and ocean acidification
In general, as ice melts, sea levels
rise. In 2014, the World Meteorological
Organization reported that sea-level
rise accelerated 0.12 inches (3
millimeters) per year on average
worldwide. This is around double the
average annual rise of 0.07 in. (1.6
mm) in the 20th century.
Diseases: As the temperature
becomes more warm, it can affect the
health of humans and the diseases they
are exposed to. With the increase in
the rainfall, water borne diseases are
likely to spread like malaria. The earth
will become more warm and as a result
heat waves are likely to increase that
can cause a major blow to the people.
Reduce Energy Use
The energy you use at home and work
contributes to increased levels of carbon
dioxide; usually, fossil fuels are burned to
produce and transport the energy, releasing
greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. By
reducing your energy use, you can reduce
your personal carbon footprint.
Stop Deforestation
Deforestation is a major contributor to
global warming. When large expanses of
forest are cut or burned, carbon dioxide, a
greenhouse gas, is released into the
atmosphere. Because trees also take
carbon dioxide from the air, cutting down
large numbers of trees causes carbon
dioxide levels to rise even further.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Reduce
waste by choosing reusable
products instead of putting in
garbage dump.
Plant a Tree or two
If you have the means to plant a
tree, start digging. During
photosynthesis, trees and other
plants absorb carbon dioxide and
give off oxygen. A single tree will
absorb approximately one ton of
carbon dioxide during its lifetime.
