Usuallypeople pay attention on daily weather changes and how the weather will bethrough the week or the month, but do we pay attention on climate change how itaffects our lives. Did we ask ourselves what are the causesof climate change? How climate change impacts our activities? Can we dosomething to solve this big issue before to turn to a big disaster? These questions make me think deeply how wework to solve this problem because the earth is the only place so far we canlive on it.
Climate change has become aworldwide problem and this issue affects human lives, environment, social andeconomic. The change in climate has serious impacts on our natural ecosystemand as human we should face it before causing great catastrophe such as wateravailability, agriculture, rising sea levels and health. Manystudies recognize that sign of change is increasing in average temperatures,snow and rainfall, patterns are shifting, and extreme climate events arebecoming more common in our days. These changes are expectedto grow if we don’t solve the issues or the causes of climate change. Firstwhat is climate change? Climate change is an imbalance in typical climaticconditions such as heat, wind patterns and precipitation that characterizeevery region on earth.
Whenwe talk about climate change at the global level, we mean changes in theEarth’s climate in general. Thepace and magnitude of long-term global climate changes have enormous impacts onnatural ecosystems.Second,what are the causes of climate change? Natural phenomena suchas volcanic eruptions or variations in the intensity of solar radiation areprobable causes. However; The presenceof natural cover of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere keeps the planet warmenough for life, as we know it, but the emission of greenhouse gases caused byhuman made the cover thicker, so stores heat and leads to global warming.Fossil fuels are the single largest source of man-made greenhouse gases.
Theburning of coal, oil and natural gas releases billions of tons of carbon eachyear, which would otherwise have been hidden in the ground, as well as largeamounts of methane and nitrous oxide. More carbon dioxide is released whentrees are cut down and no trees are planted. At the same time, large chunks oflivestock are emitted from methane, methane is also emitted from rice farms andlandfills, and nitrous oxide is produced from the use of fertilizers. Long-livedgases such as CFCs, HFCs and PFCs used for air conditioning and refrigerationare produced by industry and ultimately enter the atmosphere.
(The Intergovernmental Panel on ClimateChange).Certain humanactivities are today the first cause of this increase of thephenomenon. The buildings and the exaggerated consumption of energy arethe main ones. In areas such as the Polar Regions, energy is used extensivelyfor home heating.
Human Influences on Global Warming Humaninfluence has been a very serious issue now because human do not take care theearth. Human activities include industrial production, burning fossil fuel,mining, cattle rearing or deforestation.
