Global Warming And Early Signs of Disaster
Our planet Earth is 4.543 billion years old and human civilization is around 200,000 years old.
Since our existence on this planet, we have been so selfish that we made it difficult for other organisms to survive. Global warming is just a result of our selfish deeds.
Global warming refers to the steady increase in the average temperature of the Earth's surface. The rise of the temperature on the Earth's surface negatively affects the climate conditions. A negative change in climate conditions can harshly impact the surroundings.
Global warming takes place when carbon dioxide (CO2), greenhouse gases and other air pollutants are emitted in the environment. These gases work together to absorb the sunlight and solar radiation that have been rebounded on the Earth's surface.
Every year, scientists come across new consequences of global warming. These consequences include degrading the environment, economic and overall health of the planet. Let's take a look at the results of global warming:
The increase in Earth's temperature has resulted in melting of Glaciers. The water from Glaciers will add in the Oceans and the sea level would rise. If Global warming happens at its current rate, the time is not far when sea level would rise to such extent that our continents will get submerged. At this time the wildlife of the Glaciers is struggling for their lives due to rapid melting.
The increasing temperature will affect the forest, farms, and cities. Floods, unwanted rains, heat waves, and heavy downpours will occur frequently due to climate change. It will also damage the production from agriculture and fisheries.
The outbreaks of diseases like asthma, allergies, and infections will become more common due to higher levels of air pollution and so on.
Instead of taking major decisions to control global warming, people have ignored and called it a hoax. Last year, we pumped nearly 38.2 billion tons of carbon dioxide into the air from burning fossil fuels.
In conclusion, we have to take immediate action against global warming to ensure the survival of this planet.
