The effects of global warming are, needless to say, alarming and cause for immediate attention. The effects of global warming are more visible now than it ever has been before. Its apparent visibility makes it impossible to ignore. Changes in climate, in rainfall and snowfall patterns are all too hard to ignore. Mankind can no longer continue in its denial in the face of such drastic changes in the climate and weather patterns of the earth.
Summers are getting hotter. There is a shortage of fresh water. There are more floods, earthquakes than ever before. More and more species are becoming extinct, and even more are on the brink of extinction. If steps are not taken immediately, life as we know it now will cease to exist for our children and grandchildren.
The earth’s temperature is increasing. The ocean is getting warmer. Marine life is threatened. These are the effects of climate change. Global warming is very simply the continuance of an ever increasing temperature of the earth. The earth’s temperature rose 0.06 degrees Celsius in the 20th century. And by the year 2100 it is predicted that the earth’s temperature will rise from 3 to 5 degrees Celsius. This in turn will lead to the ocean level rising by 25% or more.
The main culprit of climate change is the increase of CO2 in the atmosphere. Co2 increases are due to deforestation, an increase in the production of methane, and the burning of fossil fuel. To be more specific, the main culprit of global warming is mankind. And it is mankind who is ultimately responsible for finding a solution. It is everyone’s responsibility to do something about it. Each one of use can make a difference. No matter how small a contribution it is, it will go a long way to make a big difference.
The news of the increase in global warming is not only a thing of worry but it is also frightening. Only a drastic turn around can stop this alarming trend. Only drastic measures can bring about a drastic change. Only if these measures are taken can a solution to the effects of global warming be found.
