Global Warming: A major Threat on Climate Change - An International Issue

Global Warming: An international issue
Global warming has great impact on our economy, health and community. If we don't act aggressively now the results can be disastrous. 

global warming

Green house effect, the major cause of global warming, is actually the warming up of earth’s surface & atmosphere due to the effect of CO2 and other gases in the atmosphere.Green House is essential for maintaining the balanced temperature and climatic conditions of the earth. When solar radiations falls on the earth’s surface and reflects, a part of the radiations is absorbed by CO2 and other gases and re-emits to earth results in warming.

global warming: green house gases

Now a day more amount of green house gases [CO2 , CH4, N 2O] are released to the atmosphere through burning of fossils fuels, coal mines, deforestation, motor vehicles., etc. Since more CO2 is released more temperature rise will occur & affects the whole climatic condition of the earth. Some region experience low rainfall and other regions experience High rainfall, resulting in drought, flooding etc.Rise in temperature will melt ice of polar region causing rise in sea level. 

Global warming is also threat to polar bears as ice melts earlier polar bear's life will be put into extinction, as the polar bear cant hunt as the ice melts.

The average facade temperature of the globe has augmented more than 1 degree Fahrenheit since 1900 and the speed of warming has been almost three folds the century long average since 1970. This increase in earth's average temperature is called Global warming. The human actions, mainly the discharge of green house gases from smokestacks, vehicles, and burning forests, are perhaps the leading power driving the fashion.are the cause of Global Warming.

How Global Warming is going to Affect Everyone of us????

How can we minimize Global Warming??
Yes, we can minimize the effects of global warming if we act now aggressively.

We cannot stop global warming suddenly but by taking necessary actions we can reduce it gradually. Planting more trees, reducing combustion of fossil fuels can reduce the effects of global warming.
Prevention of deforestation & the use of alternate energy source like solar energy, BiogasBiofuels, etc. should have to be utilized for reducing the effects of Global Warming.

Global warming solutions
Some of the possibilities are:
  1. Developing Energy efficient technologies
  2. Use Low-Level Carbon releasing fuels in transportation vehicles.
  3. Use of Nuclear Energy as an alternative source of energy.
  4. Developing Low or Zero carbon emission technologies.
  5. Boosting Forests and Agriculture.
Even though there are few options and possibilities to minimize global warming, All these options will take time to have some impact on the growing global warming rate.

what will you do to minimize the global warming today???
