How Does Global Warming

Global warming is an ominous phrase that has become all too familiar in the past few years. It is an issue that has the potential to cause irrevocable damage to our world and its inhabitants if not properly addressed and responded to in a timely manner. Through the release of carbon dioxide, methane and water vapor into the Earth’s atmosphere, the effects of global warming have created rising temperatures, melting of polar ice-caps, increasing sea levels and extreme weather conditions.

Although at times denials of the existence of global warming have been prominent, most countries have now accepted that climate change is a real and serious threat. From the Arctic to the Antarctic, temperatures are rising faster than ever. Arctic sea ice has decreased by 4 million square kilometers, an area equivalent to the size of India, since the 1950s while continental glaciers have begun to vanish. According to Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), climate change can lead to more frequent and intense heat waves, droughts, floods and landslides as well as famine, loss of biodiversity and water resources.

Despite the fact that global warming poses a direct threat to the future of humanity and the earth, a number of positive effects are also being experienced. For example, some agricultural industries in the northern hemisphere, such as the wine and fruit harvest, may be able to benefit from a longer growing season. In addition, warming climates may become more hospitable for various species, plus may open up more areas across the globe to agricultural development.

In order to combat the effect of global warming, precautionary steps need to be taken to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, tackling one of the main sources of global warming. Nations, organizations and individuals should all be involved in doing their part to reduce their consumption of fossil fuels and work towards sustainable living and the use of renewable energies. Many countries have already started to address the issue of global warming with the development of green energy sources such as solar, wind, water and geothermal power.

The effects of global warming should not be taken lightly and every effort needs to be made to reduce the amount of pollutants released into the atmosphere and to preserve and protect the environment. It is up to every one of us to spread awareness about the issue and to create positive change in our everyday lives. It is possible for us to create a better future for our planet, for the generations to come, and for ourselves. Now is the time for us to act and make the change.
