Global Warming Earth is constantly in the struggles of breaking down. From the extremely hot temperatures to the loss of trees, the planet we know as Earth slowly dies. A major cause of our Earth dying is due to the term we call global warming. The concept of global warming means the increase of Earth’s temperature. Global warming is just the people of Earth wasting our resources and polluting the world. People strive for larger constructions and better cars, yet all of this damage our environment. The growth of humans led to the decay of Earth. From the rise of sea level to ice caps melting, and unreasonably hot days, all of these are symptoms of what researchers call global warming. Sadly, the major cause of this crisis is mainly due to…show more content…
The LiveScience, a website dedicated to spreading the news about the science and biology related information to the world states, “Scientists from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate carrying out global warming research have recently predicted that average global temperatures could increase between 1.4 and 5.8 °C by the year 2100”2 how our temperature could fly sky up if we don’t stop Global warming. Clearly, the people of Earth should do something to stop the threat of global warming. Another issue of global warming is its effect on our glaciers. As told by the National Snow and Ice Data Center, “Gangotri glacier has retreated more than 850 meters (930 yards), with a recession of 76 meters (83 yards) from 1996 to 1999 alone”3 of the consequences of global warming. While this doesn’t seem like much, the melting of glaciers, cause rising sea levels. According to the IPCC (intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), “played the major role in raising average global sea level between four and eight inches (10 and 20 centimeters) in the past hundred years”4 tell the numbers at which the sea level is rising at. The rising sea levels would, in turn, affect our farms, wildlife, and even contaminating our drinking water. Glaciers are essentially Earth’s air conditioner, providing a cool head, but if that is gone, Earth will gradually rise in temperature, basically what is happening around us. Global warming is just overall horrible for
