Decent Essays
People around the world turn a blind eye on the topic of climate change, many believe that climate change is a hoax, but our Earth is changing. Our average air and ocean temperatures are rising, there is a widespread melting of snow and ice and a rising average in sea levels. These are things happening because of climate change. As habitants of the Earth, it is our duty to restore our planet after the wrongs we have done to it. Changes in the Earth’s atmosphere began to take an incline because of human activities since the Industrial Revolution. When the Industrial Revolution began, it impacted the environment greatly. The world saw a depletion of natural resources and the use of chemicals and fuel in factories resulted in increased air and water pollution. Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the acidity of ocean waters has increased by 30 percent (NASA). Large changes in the environment began in 1880 (NASA). Since 1880, the global average temperature has risen by 1.4°F. This might not seem like too many people, but should it? The answer to that question is yes. Changing the average global temperature by even a degree or two can lead to serious consequences around the globe. For about every 2°F of warming, we can expect to see 5—15% reductions in the yields of crops as currently grown, 3—10% increases in…show more content…
Around the world climate change is effecting the natural process. Sea levels are rising, the global temperature is rising, our oceans are warming, the ice sheets are shrinking, there is decreased snow cover, the ocean acidification, extreme weather conditions, declining Artic sea ice and glacial retreat. In the past century, global sea levels rose by about 17 centimeters, nearly double of the last century (NASA). When are we, habitants of the Earth, going to realize what we are doing? We are changing our planet daily and decide to not to take responsibility for
