Global warming what is causing it

Researchers around the world agree that the climate around the world is changing. Most people believe that the world’s population is contributing to this climate change. This idea is called Global Warming.

Global warming what is causing it

Causes of Global Warming the world is changing. Most people believe that the world’s population is contributing to this climate change. This idea is called Global Warming.

  • Many scientists believe that some human activities cause global warming. Some of these activities include:

    • Cutting down trees

    • Producing more trash

    • Polluting the environment

    • New Technologies that release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

  • There are, however, some scientist out there that do not believe that humans are contributing to the climate change. Some researchers believe that there is a natural warming pattern that the earth is following

Contributors to Global Warming the world is changing. Most people believe that the world’s population is contributing to this climate change. This idea is called Global Warming.

What in the world is a CFC?

CFC stands for Chlorofluorocarbons. These are chemicals made up of carbon, fluorine and chlorine atoms. These chemicals are very harmful to the environment and are the one of the main contributors to the ozone depletion. CFC’s are often found in household cleaning solutions, hairsprays, and spray paints.

What's up with the Ozone? the world is changing. Most people believe that the world’s population is contributing to this climate change. This idea is called Global Warming.

  • The ozone is a layer of gases that protects the earth from harmful UV rays. The CFC’s and other chemicals that are being produced and released are burning holes in the ozone layer! If nothing is done to stop these gases from being released the ozone layer will soon be completely gone. The ozone layer is very fragile. Therefore, does not take much to destroy it. When CFC’s reach the ozone layer the extreme amount of ultra violet rays breaks them apart. As they break apart they release chlorine atoms. The chlorine atoms then join the oxygen atoms that are put out by the ozone. This combination burns holes in the ozone layer. These holes now allow more harmful and heat causing rays to reach the earth.

Greenhouse the world is changing. Most people believe that the world’s population is contributing to this climate change. This idea is called Global Warming.GASES

  • Greenhouse gases are gases that blanket the earth and absorb heat . This heat absorption helps to keep the world warmer then it would be with out them. The greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and methane.

    • Carbon Dioxide is released into the atmosphere by the burning of solid waste, wood, wood products, and fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas)

    • Nitrous Oxide emissions occur during various agriculture and industrial processes, and when solid waste and fossil fuels are burned.

    • Methane is emitted when organic waste decomposes (through livestock farming), and also during production and transportation of fossil fuels.

The overproduction of these gases is leading to the over heating of the earth.

This news, is NOT new! the world is changing. Most people believe that the world’s population is contributing to this climate change. This idea is called Global Warming.

1957

US oceanographer Roger Revelle warns that people are conducting a "large-scale geophysical experiment" on the planet by releasing greenhouse gases. Colleague David Keeling sets up first continuous monitoring of CO2 levels in the atmosphere. Immediately Keeling finds regular year-on-year rise.

1987

Warmest year on record. The 1980s turn out to be the warmest decade, with seven of the eight warmest years recorded up to 1990. Even the coldest years in the 1980s were warmer than the warmest years of the 1880s.

1827

French polymath Jean-Baptiste Fourier suggests the existence of an atmospheric effect keeping the Earth warmer than it would otherwise be. He also uses the analogy of a greenhouse.

1890’s to 1940

Average surface air temperatures increase by about 0.25 °C. Some scientist see the American Dust Bowl as a sign of the greenhouse effect at work.

Which countries are contributors? the world is changing. Most people believe that the world’s population is contributing to this climate change. This idea is called Global Warming.

Most countries are guilty to contributing to global warming, but the most industrialized countries use the most energy. Therefore, they are most to blame for the increase in the Earth’s temperatures.

Here is another

way to look at

It!

Look who uses the most energy!!!

Are you surprised?
