“Climate change is a reality that is happening now, and that we can see its impact across the world” (Haddrill, 2014) Climate change is the changes in the pattern of the climate due to natural and human activities that has been used inappropriately. Climate is defined as the “average weather” (Calow, 1998) for a particular region. Climate change is the human activities that affect Earth’s climate by using the human activities inappropriately that leads to the warming of the Earth. There are variety of ways that affect Earth’s surface. The enhanced of greenhouse gases is the main reason why the Earth’s climate is constantly changing because releasing an abundant amount of gases through human activities, deforestation, and fossil fuel…show more content…
The climate is likely to be affected by greenhouse gas emissions. Throughout the years the greenhouse gas is said to the the main cause of global warming. There are two process of greenhouse effect, the natural greenhouse effect and enhanced greenhouse gases. The natural greenhouse gases that contributes the greenhouse effect are water vapour, carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N20). The water vapour is the most abundant in greenhouse gas and it plays the role of giving the feedback to the climate. The carbon dioxide is a gas that is released into the atmosphere by natural process such as respiration and volcanic eruptions. Human activities such as deforestation and burning of fossil fuels contributes as well. (Shaftel, 2016) The methane is much less abundant into the atmosphere but it plays its role by reacting with other gases in the atmosphere directly and indirectly and by bringing water molecules through oxidation in the stratosphere. (Shaftel, 2016) Nitrous oxide is the most influential greenhouse gas which is made by soil cultivation practices. (Shaftel, 2016) The natural changing pattern of the concentration of the gases is determined by a set of complicated process so the changes of a concentration of one greenhouse gas affects the whole process positively or negatively.
