  • The Potential Cause Of Global Warming

    1689 Words  | 7 Pages

    The potential causes of global warming are debated about by many scientists. Many scientists believe that global warming is natural while others believe it to be caused by mostly humans. Global warming may be completely natural for many reasons. First, Earth tends to go through cycles of heating and cooling and this wouldn’t be the first time our planet has begun to heat up unexpectedly. Second, nobody can directly correlate humans with global warming, we may emit CO2 but that doesn’t mean we caused

  • The Potential Effects and Ramifications of Global Warming Essay

    1374 Words  | 6 Pages

    For the first time in planet earth’s history, one of its inhabitants has acquired the power to change the global climate. By releasing the huge amounts of carbon stored in fossil fuels over millions of years, mankind has disrupted the natural carbon cycle. We have intensified the natural greenhouse effect and turned it into a planetary menace that is melting our ice caps. In his award-winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore (2006) states, “human activities, if unchecked in the next decade

  • Global Warming : A Potential Solution

    Bioremediation: A potential solution to reduce our footprint Industrialized societies are now tormented by several pollution problems that were largely unknown prior to WWII. Prominent among these problems is environmental pollution of xenobiotic synthetic chemicals that fail to be recycled by microorganism and may be biomagnified with destructive effects. Also, deforestation, land conversion, overhunting and the burning of fossil fuels are other human’s activities that impact negatively our ecosystem

    atmospheric lifetime than the new compound, in other words, the legacy compounds would take longer time to accumulate in atmosphere and impact on climate. Most importantly, from the data of global warming potential, it is clear that both HFCs compounds are greenhouse gases and they do contribute to global warming; however, the legacy compound has almost ten times higher GWPs than the new compound. The definition of a GWP for a particular greenhouse gas is ration of a gas’s heat-trapping ability relative

  • Factors in Calculating Emissions

    610 Words  | 2 Pages

    ANSWER 1: I have noticed that I can make significant reductions to my carbon footprint by making some small changes in the following aspects: a) Heating & Cooling: Insulating and caulking the roof/walls, ventilation and shading/awning can reduce the usage heating and cooling systems, which reduce carbon emissions significantly. Having efficient Energy star rated equipment also helps. b) Refrigeration: Maintaining the freezer (above -15 degrees Celsius) and fridge temperatures (between 3 and 5 degrees

  • The Greenhouse Policy : Global Warming Temperatures

    943 Words  | 4 Pages

    The Greenhouse Policy The Greenhouse Policy was adapted from the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards Regulation 2012. The aim of the Policy was to limit global warming temperatures below two degrees Celsius, reduce emissions to five per cent below 2000 levels by 2020, and provide recommendations. In 1998, Australia signed the Kyoto Protocol, an international treaty, which commits to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Australian Gas Light Company is committed to reduce emissions, being the largest

    reduce the emission of CO2 becomes a worldwide agenda. (Christopher R.I, 2013) While, Buildings, taking up third of the total UK greenhouse gas emissions (CCC, 2014, have a great potential to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions and improve the sustainable development in the future. One of the non-neglect issue to reduce the energy use and CO2 emission of building is in the construction phases. The embodied carbon accounting 20-50%

    B.C. Climate Action Plan The B.C. Climate Action Plan is a comprehensive strategy implemented by the Canadian government with the objective to diminish provincial greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). In 2007, a Throne Speech was given remarking that climate leadership in B.C was illusory and commitment to climate leadership was an imperative component in the future of the province. As such, in 2008, the Climate Action Plan was released with the intent to serve as a guide in helping British Columbia
