Climate Change And Global Warming

For the past decades Climate change/ global warming has gained the attention of scientist because of the studies and experiments show how climate change can have catastrophically impacts in our planet and that we are starting to see today. Global climate change is a phenomenon caused by greenhouse gases trapped in the atmosphere which produce enormous effects on the earth’s organisms, nature and all habitats. By burning fossil fuels and by cutting forests known as deforestation humans contribute to global warming. Burning fossil fuels causes more greenhouse gases to build up in the atmosphere. Fossil fuels such as oil, coal and natural gas are high in carbon and, when burned, produce major amounts of carbon dioxide. A single gallon of…show more content…
If humans are the major contribution to global warming what can we as humans do about it and reduce the gases that pollute our air? Now is time for humans to take action to make a difference in the planet by reducing the ways that we as human interfere in climate change and for us to start new sources of energy that would have less negative impact (ucsusa.org) There are human finger prints on carbon overload. When humans burn coal, oil, and fossil fuels to generate electricity or drive our cars, carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere, where it traps heat. There is direct evidence of human contribution to atmospheric CO2. Carbon dioxide is the main heat-trapping gas largely responsible for most of the average warming over the past decade and since humans are the ones who used carbon dioxide for the everyday life, humans are the main contribution to it. Caused most of the observed increase in globally averaged temperatures since the past decades arming and that natural changes alone cannot explain the temperature changes that we have seen for the past decades in the entire planet. (ucsusa.org) The effects of climate change are seeing throughout the entire planet and humans are the organisms that are affected the most. Glaciers are composed of ice which is one of nature most abundant substances and can form in the atmosphere as snow. The huge massive glaciers and frozen water that are in the earth’s poles are melting because of the global
