The Effects Of Global Warming On The Environment

Global warming is an increasing in average global temperatures across the planet. This is due to the rising temperatures on the continent. Temperatures continue to rise yearly causing global warming. The greenhouse effect is sun light radiation being driven back to the earth. When solar energy is released into the atmosphere, there is an effect of bouncing back. Solar radiation is bounced back into the atmosphere causing the temperature of the earth to remain steady. However, over time greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have caused the bounce back solar radiation to have a double back. This is when the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere cause the solar radiation to bounce back to the earth forcing the temperature to rise and remain higher than normal. This in effect causes global warming to occur. The atmospheric temperatures rise because the solar radiation is not escaping the atmosphere like it is designed to do. The two work hand in hand. Atmospheric temperatures are being pushed to higher levels because greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are at an all-time high. The greenhouse gases in the atmosphere cause the solar radiation to push back to the earth, in return raising the overall atmospheric temperature of the earth. There are several different types of gases in the atmosphere that cause solar radiation to bounce back to the earth keeping it trapped in the atmosphere. These gases are vital to the earth because if there were no gases the earth would freeze. The overall
