The Alarming Issue of a Warming Earth

Updated on July 7, 2015

The Issue

Some of the scientists, I believe, haven’t they been changing their opinion a little bit on global warming? There’s a lot of differing opinions and before we react I think it’s best to have the full accounting, full understanding of what’s taking place. - GEORGE W. BUSH


Climate change is already affecting a wide variety of biological species including us. Everyone has to do their share in stopping its causes in their respective places.

Climate Change and Global Warming

Are you affected by the change in the earth's temperature? Why Should We Be Concerned about a Warmer Earth? Do you really know the issues of climate change and global warming? Every one has to be aware of the two issues not only on the concepts involved but also on the solutions we have to adapt for sustainability.

Everyone, almost everybody and the whole entire humanity are now faced with the alarming issues on climate change and global warming. Everyone accepts that climate change is a major issue that affects Mother Earth. Thus making us eventually realized that it is an issue that confronts the entire humanity in the 21st century. An issue that undoubtedly affects not only our country being an archipelago in the biggest ocean of the earth but the whole planet as well. Based on the results of researches and scientific studies, the climatic rise in the world’s temperature, the sea level rise and coastal flooding, abnormal weather patterns, unusually warm weather heat waves, ocean warming, devastating typhoons and tornadoes, El Niño and la Niña, heavy snowfalls in many parts of the world, increased ranges of pests, drought and fires, and loss of biodiversity are the life-threatening results of climate change. As we experienced these phenomena and environmental surprises, we are beginning to realize that climate change is not just an accidental occurrence. We are now aware that the big bulk of problem on climate change is brought about by many years of human recklessness in dealing with the whole natural world… with Mother Earth.

According to several studies, a rapid increase in the temperature of the troposphere would give us little time to deal with and has harmful effect. What do we mean by that? Scientists involved with climate studies warn that it is not just about temperature change but how fast it occurs. The fairly sharp projected increase in temperature of the troposphere at present gives a big disparity in the changes of temperature over thousands of years to a hundred thousand years. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), there is a 90-99% chance that this will be the fastest temperature change of the past 1,000 years. This rapid change might affect the availability of water resources by altering the rates of evaporation and precipitation. It can affect the areas for crop to grow. It can also alter some ocean currents, increase average sea levels and can cause flood in some wetlands, cities and low-lying islands. Likewise, it can also change the structure and location of the world’s biomes and could affect the economic and social fabric of various societies in the entire world. Within a few decades or a century, scientists say that the projected increase in the earth’s atmosphere will give us little time to be able to deal with its effects. These predictions and the results of studies as well were supported by a 2003 analysis conducted by Peter Schwartz and Doug Randall. They therefore concluded that global warming “must be viewed as a serious threat to global stability and should be elevated beyond a scientific debate."

Global Warming and Greenhouse Effect

The world is warming up because carbon dioxide from smoke and car exhausts collect in the atmosphere and traps some of the heat going back to space, like greenhouse. Carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are expected to raise global temperature by an average of 2 degrees Centigrade by the year 2100 causing the polar ice caps to melt, sea levels to rise and freak weather conditions which may cause millions of deaths.

Solar radiation interacts with the earth’s surface in several ways. Some portion of this energy is reflected back into space by the Earth’s atmosphere, another portion is dispersed and scattered by the molecules in the atmosphere and a large portion penetrates through the Earth’s atmosphere to reach the surface of the Earth. The radiation reaching the earth’s surface is largely absorbed resulting in surface warming.

Much of this absorbed energy is eventually re-radiated in longer infrared wavelengths. As it leaves the Earth, it once again interacts with the atmosphere. Some of this re-radiated energy escapes to space, but much of this is reflected back to the Earth’s surface by molecules in the Earth’s atmosphere.

The molecules responsible for this phenomenon are called greenhouse gases. These are water (H2O), nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4), and carbon dioxide (CO2). They are called greenhouse gases because they act like the glass in the greenhouse, trapping re-radiated energy. Without these gases most life on Earth would not be possible, as the surface temperature of the Earth would likely be about 60 degrees Fahrenheit colder.

The so-called greenhouse gases (GHGs) are naturally occurring gases that keep the Earth warm enough for plants and animals to live in. They are by natural processes like the water cycle, growth and death of plants and animals, decaying of wood and other biodegradable materials, volcanic activities, etc.

In the last two centuries, it has been noted that human activities have increased the production of these gases:

  • Methane (CH4), is primarily from agricultural activities such as intensive livestock raising and flooding of rice paddies and also from waste dumps, coal beds and leaks from gas pipelines;
  • Carbon dioxide (CO2), these are from machines and motors that use coal, oil, and natural gas, and also from deforestation;
  • Nitrous Oxide (N2O generated from intensive agriculture;
  • Ozone (O3), in lower atmosphere, indirectly from automobile exhaust fumes;
  • Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), from industrial processes as the ODS or ozone depleting substances
  • Water vapor is also one of the greenhouse gases.

Global warming is caused by the increase in greenhouse gas (GHG) concentration in the atmosphere, trapping more heat near the Earth’s surface. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which is a scientific intergovernmental body under the auspices of the United Nation further concluded that this increase in GHG concentration is anthropogenic or man-made.

Effects of Global Warming:

A warmer weather could mean any or all of the following:

  • Extreme weather condition.

Storms, floods, landslides and drought have wreaked havoc on agriculture, infrastructure and the lives of millions of people.

  • Rise in sea level

It has been surmised that the 0.3 degrees Celsius to 0.6 degrees Celsius rise in global temperature since 1860 has resulted in a 10 – 25 centimeters rise in sea level. As global temperature increases, thermal expansion of ocean water and melting of glaciers occur.

  • Health problems

Higher temperature will induce more cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. Incidents of dengue fever, malaria, yellow fever and other tropical diseases will likewise continue to increase as hotter temperatures are more suitable in breeding of mosquitoes and insect that carry these diseases.

  • Destruction of Ecosystems

For every degree Celsius rise in temperature, forest will experience a rise in occurrences of fires and pests. Entire forests could disappear because their functions compositions will be severely affected. Plant species that are unable to cope with severe drought and heat waves could become extinct, and could result to food shortage.

  • Coral bleaching and death to corals

Corals, which are home to varieties of fishes and algae, are very sensitive to abrupt changes in weather temperature. When subjected to a 2 degree - Celsius to 3 degree - Celsius increase in water temperature of about three days, the algae will be expelled from the corals, denying the corals of their main food. The corals will turn white and die.


Coral bleaching happens when corals get too hot. Bleached corals are considered as sick corals . Bleached corals can still recover given the normal temperatur

Conclusion

Most people know that we cannot continue in the future as we have in the past. We can see that our deserts are expanding, the forests are diminishing, and the agricultural land is becoming less fertile and leached of its trace minerals, while the population of the world is increasing. If we do not change our ways, nature will check us in its own way. We have to do our share in saving the earth. What we think will be. The power of the mind and the will to change things can prevent big disasters. And big disasters can be avoided if people join together with possible thoughts and love. Who says we cannot save Mother Earth…? If we have the political will and discipline … Yes we can!

“There is no cause more vital and notable than the survival of the earth, and as its stewards, each and every one of us is responsible for its sustainable use. We have much to do to return our air, our water and our land to the bloom of health, as untrammeled economic development and population growth have exerted tremendous and often destructive pressure on the environment. We must act now to ensure that future generations of Filipinos will have enough to live on and bequeath to their own descendants.” - Sec. Heherson T. Alvarez

      Global warming is a major atmospheric issue all over the world. Our earth’s surface becoming hot day by day by trapping the sun’s heat and rise in the level of atmospheric carbon dioxide. It has become one of the subjects of big social issues which need social awareness to a great level. People should know its meaning, causes, effects and solutions to solve it immediately. People should come forth together and try to solve it in order to save life on the earth.

      Global warming is real. It is happening today. It is being charted by our satellites. It is being charted by our scientists. It is being charted by those of us in this body, and I think the real key is if we are ready to admit that fact and take the action to make the necessary conversion. The most important thing about global warming is this. Whether humans are responsible for the bulk of climate change is going to be left to the scientists, but it's all of our responsibility to leave this planet in better shape for the future generations than we found it.

      Global warming describe a gradual increase in the average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and its oceans, a change that is believed to be permanently changing the Earth's climate.

      In order to effectively address global warming, we must significantly reduce the amount of heat-trapping emissions we are putting into the atmosphere.

      As individuals, we can help by taking action to reduce our personal carbon emissions. But to fully address the threat of global warming, we must demand action from our elected leaders to support and implement a comprehensive set of climate solutions.

      Global warming is such a very serious problem that we encounter today. This is a phenomenon which really to solve . global warming is where we expirience the quick changing of temperature for being hot. The solution for this s problem is we have to something about it that can help our mother earth for the sake of having a good environment. How? By making use such thing that can help through natural usage, planting trees, use bicycle twice a week when you are going to work or school to lessen the polution. So when it come to climate change this is more serious thing. Now we experience very heavy rains tornado's and other environmental calamities. Too many lives are gone in this situation the solution is we have to know how to concerve our nature cleaning our places do such things that can help to maintain the nature's own beauty and we can do all of these if we work as one and always have faith with God because nothing is imposible if we have God on each in everyones heart

      Global warming is the rise in temperature of the earth's atmosphere primarily due to the so called "greenhouse effect". as explained by Hadley Center for Climate Prediction and research in the United-Kingdom, when there is a change in the world's ocean temperature, typhoons and cyclones will become more frequent and more severe.

      Global warming started since 19th century. It affects are countries in the tropics, subtropics, and the developing countries.

      Greenhouse effect allows sunlight to enter and traps the heat energy that keeps the inslide of the greenhouse.

My solution is to stop the politicians from polluting the atmosphere with their hot air, and allow nature to take her course.

We should follow all the rules and regulations planned and implemented by the government to reach to the aim and continue the possibility of healthy life on the earth. We should try to live very simple life in order to keep the atmospheric temperature up to normal so that all the natural cycles may go as usual without any negative effects.

      Global warming is the term used to describe a gradual increase in the average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and its oceans, a change that is believed to be permanently changing the Earth’s climate. There is great debate among many people, and sometimes in the news, on whether global warming is real (some call it a hoax). But climate scientists looking at the data and facts agree the planet is warming. While many view the effects of global warming to be more substantial and more rapidly occurring than others do, the scientific consensus on climatic changes related to global warming is that the average temperature of the Earth has risen between 0.4 and 0.8 °C over the past 100 years.

      Global warming is relatively connected to mankind. It is a general and scientific assumption that the temperature of our earth is constantly increasing and will later cause great climate changes in the whole world. As I searched, ecological scientists believe that it is all because of man’s unfriendly environmental activities. As a result of global warming, ice is melting all over the world, less fresh water will be available in future, etc. This brings us to conclude that both environment and living organisms are threatened by damaging effects of global warming.

      Global warming is primarly a problem of too much carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere—which acts as blanket,trapping heat and warming the planet. As we burn fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas for energy or cut down and burn forests to create pastures and plantions, carbon accumulates and overloads our atmosphere. Certain waste management and agricultural practices aggravate the problem by releasing other potent global warming gases, such as methane and nitrous oxide.

      It is a fact that the world is experiencing a significant climate change, as is evident in unpredictable weather patterns. This has led to an international discussion of global warming and its threat to future existence of life on earth. For example, it is difficult to predict each year what geographic locations will experience rainfall and to what extent. Additionally, ice caps are melting, resulting in the rise of the sea level in some low-laying land areas, many of these highly populated with people. Furthermore, for the past couple of years, world media has aired news of huge wildfires in a number of locations world-wide. Moreover, deadly heat waves are occurring more frequently. Severe storms have also been witnessed in various parts of the world, causing loss of human lives and destruction of property. In addition, severe droughts that had hitherto never been experienced are becoming commonplace in many countries. These are concrete examples that global warming is a real threat.

      Global warming. It is the main problem of earth. The cause of destructions, climate change, melting of ice in poles, global catastrophe like water pollution and landslides. All of these are problems made by humans by destroying the earth. Global warming is caused by greenhouse gasses trapped into our atmosphere. Greenhouse gasses is composed of many gasses like CO2. Carbon dioxide is a gas that we humans exhale. It can be found in smoke emitting object like cars, factories and others. Technology is making our life easier but many of us doesn't know that it is causing a major part in global warming. This can't be happened if we did not cut trees from forest. Many of us dont know that trees absorbs carbon dioxide but trees are destroyed by multiple events like kaingin and illegal logging. Shall we stop to progress for us to stop abusing our nature. We nees to know the answer before the time that we realize that we cannot eat money.

      the greenhouse effect and global warming are issues that are talked about by geologists all the time. The greenhouse effect is a natural process that keeps the earth at temperatures that are livable. Energy from the sun warms the earth when its heat rays are absorbed by greenhouse gasses and become trapped in the atmosphere. Some of the most common greenhouse gasses are water vapor, carbon dioxide, and methane. If there were no greenhouse gasses, very few rays would be absorbed and the earth would be extremely cold. When too many rays are absorbed, the earth's atmosphere starts to warm, which leads to global warming. Global warming can lead to many problems that affects the environment in which we live.

      All living organism here in Earth is affected by Global Warming. Global Warming can also be the Trigger to Climate Change. Global Warming and Climate Change is a big hindrance for us Living Organism. This can cause illness, poverty , Destruction of Our Natural Resources, Destruction of our shelter and can even cause DEATH. We are living here in our Planet with the 4 elements (water,soil,air and fire) and global warming can change the moods of these elements. Global Warming can change the patterns of the circulation of the sea. Global Warming can move Tectonic Plates. Global Warming can cause Air Pollution. And Global Warming can burn our way of living into ashes.

      Let us think on how can we survive. Let's take care of ourselves. But let us lend our mother earth our helping hand.

      We definitely feel it now and we're nearing to see its full effect. Have we wondered why the weather is so hot but it's raining season? Or suddenly it is raining when you see awhile ago that the sky is clear? It's not normal, well it's the aftermath of what the humankind did to this very planet. The world is warming, and that is the main reason why the glaciers in The Polar regions are melting. Animals and plants are in the brink of decreasing in numbers---why? because some of the species find it difficult to adapt in this changing environment. The ozone is depleting, biodiversity is loss. And we got no response to this big dilemma.

      Global warming and other environmental issues are not just a simple occurrence. As I said, it wasn't normal, and it doesn't just pop out of nowhere.

      Climate change is changing our economy, health and communities in diverse ways. Scientists warn that if we do not aggressively curb climate change now, the results will likely be disastrous.

      The current and future consequences of global change is the potential future effects of global climate change include more frequent wildfires, longer periods of drought in some regions and an increase in the number, duration and intensity of tropical storms.

      Global climate change has already had observable effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner.

      Effects that scientists had predicted in the past would result from global climate change are now occurring: loss of sea ice, accelerated sea level rise and longer, more intense heat waves.

      Global warming is a phenomenal dilemma in our environment. It deals with inappropriate condition as well as atmosphere. It also encloses the ozone layer which was being destroyed nowadays that causes the heat to come over and causes the atmosphere being damaged. Global warming might as well defy the increase of the temperatures due to different pollution nowadays. The destruction of forest and trees are also a factor why Global Warming arise. Deforestation result downgrading of our environment which precisely causes global warming. The changes in climate we experience recently are the end products of Global Warming. And the outgoing radiation that warms the earth of green house effect are also causes in Global Warming.

Along with the progress and development of the way we live, the way we interact with each other and the way we invent new things for our easy living, we contribute to the more and more destruction of our planet. What's done has been done, we cannot undo those things, but we surely can minimized the continues destruction of it even in little things that we do. It would not be easy but if we will really put our combines efforts and what the most develop countries have been researching and studying maybe there will still be Earth for the many generations to come.

      Global warming is already having significant and harmful effects on our communities, our health, and our climate. We are the cause. We are overloading our atmosphere with carbon dioxide, which traps heat and steadily drives up the planet’s temperature. Where does all this carbon come from? The fossil fuels we burn for energy—coal, natural gas, and oil—plus the loss of forests due to deforestation, especially in the tropics

      One of the biggest problems facing the world today is global warming. Many scientists believe that our production of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases is having a heating effect on the atmosphere, and this could be very dangerous for human life. There are so many problem that global warming can bring. I will give at least 2 examples: 1st one is changes in weather patterns, this Many areas of the world are experiencing increased hurricanes, floods, and other unusual weather, the best example of this is in Hilton, usually in Hilton,the people there they didn't experience snow but now they experiencing it because the pattern of weather changed. The 2nd one is it cause flood, the most common problem. Here in the Philippines we usually experience flood because we have lack of trees that can sip the water . That's only 2 common causes of global warming. But we have a solution there, we make small changes now in the way we live, we can avoid huge changes in the future, like planting trees,use less energy and to recycle more products. but changing the world, comes by ourselves first, be a role model to others .

      Global warming is really alarming. As you can see when the summer season comes, sometimes it rains hard and when the BER-months come which we usually know that this is the time of the cold weather it is usually hot. Human activities causes these changes, the abusive use of resources around us and taking for granted about these changes. We must be responsible of our own action as well as to our only habitat. In our own simple way we can help to reduce its effect, by recycling materials, seggregating wastes, making compost pits and plant seedlings in our backyards. We should make our move before its too late for us and also for the next generations who will inhabit to our environment. Mother Earth is in grief and we humans should help her to be beautiful and alive again.

Slowly, it destroys the earth through the harmful rays of the sun. Climate change is the most evident product of global warming, because as we all know disasters that cause destruction to human lives are part of it. Lastly, we must all remember that this is already a warning that we should start to care and do some actions to fight pollution and save mother earth.

      Global warming is the warming near the earth's surface that results when the earth's atmosphere traps the sun's heat. The earth is getting warmer. The changes are small, so far, but they are expected to grow and speed up. Within the next fifty to one hundred years, the earth may be hotter than it has been in the past million years. As oceans warm and glaciers melt, land and cities along coasts may be flooded. Heat and drought may cause forests to die and food crops to fail. Global warming will affect weather everywhere, plants and animals everywhere, people everywhere; humans are warming the earth's atmosphere by burning fuels, cutting down forest, and by taking part in other activities that release certain heat trapping gases into the air.

As we burn fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas for energy or cut down and burn forests to create pastures and plantations, carbon accumulates and overloads our atmosphere. Certain waste management and agricultural practices aggravate the problem by releasing other potent global warming gases, such as methane and nitrous oxide.

Many scientists believe that our production of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases is having a heating effect on the atmosphere, and this could be very dangerous for human life. This essay will examine the problem of global warming and suggest some ways of solving the problem.

      Many problems could result from global warming. One of the biggest problems is rising sea level. This could result in the flooding of low lying coastal areas and cities, such as Egypt, the Netherlands, and Bangladesh. Some countries might even disappear completely! Another problem caused by global warming is changes in weather patterns. Many areas of the world are experiencing increased hurricanes, floods, and other unusual weather. A third problem associated with global warming is the effect on animals. Fish populations could be affected, while some insects which spread disease might become more common.

      There are several things we can do to solve the problem of global warming. One solution is to stop producing C02. We can do this by switching from oil, coal and gas to renewable energy. Another solution is to plant more trees. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen, which is not a greenhouse gas. A third solution is to use less energy and to recycle more products. Generating electricity is one of the main sources of carbon dioxide. If we use less electricity, we will produce less C02.

      In conclusion, if we make small changes now in the way we live, we can avoid huge changes in the future. Scientists, governments and individuals must work together to overcome this threat.

      Global warming is the term used to describe a gradual increase in the average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and its oceans, a change that is believed to be permanently changing the Earth’s climate. There is great debate among many people, and sometimes in the news, on whether global warming is real (some call it a hoax). But climate scientists looking at the data and facts agree the planet is warming. While many view the effects of global warming to be more substantial and more rapidly occurring than others do, the scientific consensus on climatic changes related to global warming is that the average temperature of the Earth has risen between 0.4 and 0.8 °C over the past 100 years. The increased volumes of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases released by the burning of fossil fuels, land clearing, agriculture, and other human activities, are believed to be the primary sources of the global warming that has occurred over the past 50 years. Scientists from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate carrying out global warming research have recently predicted that average global temperatures could increase between 1.4 and 5.8 °C by the year 2100. Changes resulting from global warming may include rising sea levels due to the melting of the polar ice caps, as well as an increase in occurrence and severity of storms and other severe weather events.

      Can one person help stop global climate change? Yes! Especially when the simple steps you, your friends, and your family take are multiplied by millions of people all over the world.

      Global warming is a very serious case. It can affect the whole humanity and ofcourse the entire world. As a human who suffers a lot because of the effect of global warming we need more attention and focus to know what is the efficient prevention to the global warming. As astudent and future teacher, I can help by taking action to reduce our personal carbon emissions. But to fully address the threat of global warming, we must demand action from our elected leaders to support and implement a comprehensive set of climate solutions.

      In this generation climate change is the biggest problem of the human being. It is already happening and represents one of the greatest environmental, social and economic threats facing the planet. These are cause by many things mainly the pollutions. In this time it is alraming that we are experiencing severe storms that we don't experience before, the fresh water that has been contaminated by many toxins, the sudden changes of weather conditions.

      As a student and a future teacher we should help in saving our Mother earth by doing small things like cleaning the environment and maintaining the peace in it. We can plant plenty of trees and save water as neccessary. With these small things we can prevent the alarming issue of warming the earth.

      Global warming is already having significant and harmful effects on our communities, our health, and our climate. Sea level rise is accelerating. The number of large wildfires is growing. Dangerous heat waves are becoming more common. Extreme storm events are increasing in many areas. More severe droughts are occurring in others.

      We are the cause. We are overloading our atmosphere with carbon dioxide, which traps heat and steadily drives up the planet’s temperature. Where does all this carbon come from? The fossil fuels we burn for energy—coal, natural gas, and oil—plus the loss of forests due to deforestation, especially in the tropics.

      Global warming is the steady and continuous rise in the level of earth temperature. Out earth surface is becoming hotter day by day just because of some unnoticeable habits of human beings all across the world. . The earth is getting warmer. The changes are small, so far, but they are expected to grow and speed up. Within the next fifty to one hundred years, the earth may be hotter than it has been in the past million years. As oceans warm and glaciers melt, land and cities along coasts may be flooded. Heat and drought may cause forests to die and food crops to fail. Global warming will affect weather everywhere, plants and animals everywhere, people everywhere; humans are warming the earth's atmosphere by burning fuels, cutting down forest, and by taking part in other activities that release certain heat trapping gases into the air. Global warming has become the most worrying threat for the earth’s atmosphere as it is reducing the life possibilities on the earth day by day through a continuous and steady declining process

      As a student, there are many things that we could do to help the environment. We need to help the environment because we live on earth, and this is the only place we can live on right now. If we treat it like the city dump it becomes dirty and unlivable. If we treat it well, the earth stays a clean place, perfect for living, for ourselves and our children. In order to save the environment you need to be aware of what you are doing, buying, using, and what it does to the environment.

      There are many ways we can help save the environment everyday. You can reduce the amount of waste you produce by buying products in bulk, rather than in individually wrapped containers. You can also reuse things. Do not throw away unwanted used computer paper, use the other side for scratch paper, then recycle it. Before you throw broken things away, see how much it would take to repair them. Donate used clothes, furniture, toys, books, and magazines to charity. It is also very easy to recycle. We could also plant more trees. Planting trees can help much in reducing global warming then any other method. They not only give oxygen but also take in carbon dioxide, during the process of photosynthesis, which is the main source of global warming. Save the energy When you consume less, the less carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere.

      There are so many things we could do if we are willing..

      but, before planning the solutions of the global warming, we must think about the causes and effects of it on the atmosphere in order to get sure that we are in right direction of getting full relief from this issue.

It is being charted by those of us in this body, and I think the real key is if we are ready to admit that fact and take the action to make the necessary conversion. The most important thing about global warming is this. Whether humans are responsible for the bulk of climate change is going to be left to the scientists, but it's all of our responsibility to leave this planet in better shape for the future generations than we found it.

      Why is there a need to address this issue?

      Some says, it wasn't fetal. Of course, today it wasn't. But how about tomorrow? The next day, or in the future?

      Think about the weather. It should be colder now than the past months, but actually, it's still hot. And then suddenly the next day you'll be watching a report saying that the supply of water isn't enough to maintain irrigation to most of the places in the Philippines but then typhoons after typhoons are entering our zone. In the midst of the early morning, the heat of the sun does burn your skin. And before, we haven't even imagined that we'll be experiencing flood just because of a light rain.

      They are simply minor indicators of climate change.

      What is climate change?

      Climate change is a very complex phenomenon. It's not like an earthquake that occurs only in a specific area, because climate change --- it covers the whole planet. In scientific explanation, it is caused by the increasing global and atmospheric temperature which is the Global Warming, thus considering it to be one of the most alarming environmental issue of this generation.

      So, "why us? why not them?"

      Climate change and Global warming doesn't just affect to a particular group, country or continent because even us, we have contributed to it.

      Even though we've only added a little to cause global warming, still, it counts.

      We do not see it coming today, so that's why we continued compromising the safety of our planet over selfish human reasons. Then tomorrow, what?

      We're ill? Starved? Unsecured?

      It can be.

      But it is not too late. We can still save what remains.

      It's time to listen – and take action. There's plenty we can do.

      Preventing Global Warming to happen to the future is the best way to save us.

      Carbon pollution is the main reason our planet is getting hotter, increasing the chances of weather disasters, drought and flood and hurting our health.

      Our solutions, we can cut carbon pollution by reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and increasing our use of clean, renewable energy. And we can implement policies that help us prepare for flooding, drought, storms and other consequences of climate change.

      But first, we need national leadership that will stop ignoring what the earth and scientists are telling us about climate change -- and instead start ignoring those who continue to deny it is happening.

      Global Warming is the increase of Earth's average surface temperature due to effect of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels or from deforestation, which trap heat that would otherwise escape from Earth. This is a type of greenhouse effect.Earth's climate is mostly influenced by the first 6 miles or so of the atmosphere which contains most of the matter making up the atmosphere. This is really a very thin layer if you think about it. In the book The End of Nature, author Bill McKibbin tells of walking three miles to from his cabin in the Adirondack's to buy food. Afterwards, he realized that on this short journey he had traveled a distance equal to that of the layer of the atmosphere where almost all the action of our climate is contained. In fact, if you were to view Earth from space, the principle part of the atmosphere would only be about as thick as the skin on an onion! Realizing this makes it more plausible to suppose that human beings can change the climate. A look at the amount of greenhouse gases we are spewing into the atmosphere (see below), makes it even more plausible.

      Let us open our eyes to the truth about Mother Earth. Global warming is a very alarming issue worldwide and yet we are taking mother earth for granted. Global warming is the continous increase in temperature of the Earth caused by greenhouse gases which trap the heat from the sun. Today, there have been many cases of strong typhoons in the world. Typhoons are formed because of heat. This kind of typhoon leads flash floods which destroy not only the properties of people but also their very lives. This is happening because of the continous global warming.

      What can we do to avoid these from happening? If only we ate really determined to make a change, we can do the things to save Mother Earth. We should save energy and continue to participate in Earth Hour, where the world saves energy for an hour. We should also participate in talks about our environment, plant trees and stop thr burning of grass, garbage and leaves. Let us act now rather than wait for tomorrow and be sorry because its too late. It is the time to wake up to the inconvenient truth.

      Global warming and climate change are terms for the observed century-scale rise in the average temperature of the Earth's climate system and its related effects.

      Multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming. Although the increase of near-surface atmospheric temperature is the measure of global warming often reported in the popular press, most of the additional energy stored in the climate system since 1970 has gone into ocean warming. The remainder has melted ice, and warmed the continents and atmosphere.[a] Many of the observed changes since the 1950s are unprecedented over decades to millennia.

      Scientific understanding of global warming is increasing. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported in 2014 that scientists were more than 95% certain that most of global warming is caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases and other human (anthropogenic) activities.Climate model projections summarized in the report indicated that during the 21st century the global surface temperature is likely to rise a further 0.3 to 1.7 °C (0.5 to 3.1 °F) for their lowest emissions scenario using stringent mitigation and 2.6 to 4.8 °C (4.7 to 8.6 °F) for their highest.[9These findings have been recognized by the national science academies of the major industrialized nations.

      Future climate change and associated impacts will differ from region to region around the globe. Anticipated effects include warming global temperature, rising sea levels, changing precipitation, and expansion of deserts in the subtropics. Warming is expected to be greatest in the Arctic, with the continuing retreat of glaciers, permafrost and sea ice. Other likely changes include more frequent extreme weather events including heat waves, droughts, heavy rainfall, and heavy snowfall;ocean acidification; and species extinctions due to shifting temperature regimes. Effects significant to humans include the threat to food security from decreasing crop yields and the abandonment of populated areas due to flooding.

      Given the harsh realities of climate change as caused by the greenhouse effect, many people are rightfully concerned about what can be done to reverse the trend toward global warming. Less driving and more use of public transportation, use of insulation with a higher R-value to decrease the fuel burned to heat and cool our homes, more efficient appliances and use of energy-efficient light bulbs will reduce our energy needs in the short term.

      In the long term, converting to green or renewable energy sources like wind, geothermal and solar which don't emit CO2 into the atmosphere is imperative. Sustainable agriculture that doesn't rely on heavy use of fertilizer, meat-based proteins or petroleum-based additives will also make a huge difference. And stopping deforestation in the forests around the world will keep more carbon on Earth rather than sending it back into the atmosphere.

      In the long term, converting to green or renewable energy sources like wind, geothermal and solar which don't emit CO2 into the atmosphere is imperative. Sustainable agriculture that doesn't rely on heavy use of fertilizer, meat-based proteins or petroleum-based additives will also make a huge difference. And stopping deforestation in the forests around the world will keep more carbon on Earth rather than sending it back into the atmosphere.

      Global warming is a very serious case. It can affect the whole humanity and ofcourse the entire world. As a human who suffers a lot because of the effect of global warming we need more attention and focus to know what is the efficient prevention to the global warming. Discipline and Responsibility this is what we need to show. Let the next generation experience how beautiful the Mother Earth is. Global warming is the term used to describe a gradual increase in the average temperature of the earth's atmosphere and it's oceans, a change that is believed to be permanently changing the earth's climate

      Changing climates would affect large numbers of people across great areas of the world. But the climate would end up being completely different from what previously existed. Temperate climates would become sub tropical with some areas becoming desert rather than plains. Tundra would disappear and temperate climate would replace it. Of course, this assumes that there are no self-correcting mechanisms within earth's weather systems. If our weather is the primary force in distributing heat gain evenly over the entire world then it must also be the primary force in cooling the planet, no? Global warming is simply acknowledging increases in world temperature. Climate change encompasses much greater things and is much less evident at this time. Of supreme concern today ought to be the drastic reduction of tropical rainforest along the equator in order to achieve more farming land.

      Global warming is a very dangerous problem in our world today. Responsible, and potentially responsible, for new diseases, health problems, and land loss, this problem deserves more attention than it is currently receiving. Another danger that could result from global warming is the rapid spread and growth of diseases. Most bacteria that create deadly diseases thrive in warm weather. Malaria, Dengue Fever, Yellow Fever, and West Nile Virus, are among some diseases that would flourish in hotter weather. (Journey to Planet Earth). With earth being warmer, these infections could travel quicker, and more efficiently, being transmitted to more and more people.

      Climate change also promotes the growth of molds. This is because most fungi and molds commonly live in places with heat and humidity. Molds cause many problems for humans, such as respiratory problems, rashes, and other illnesses.

      Many natural disasters would also result from climate change. Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Floods, Typhoons, and Droughts are just some natural disasters that would be more common in a world with Global Warming.

      Throughout its long history, Earth has warmed and cooled time and again. Climate has changed when the planet received more or less sunlight due to subtle shifts in its orbit, as the atmosphere or surface changed, or when the Sun’s energy varied. But in the past century, another force has started to influence Earth’s climate: humanity

      Global warming is the unusually rapid increase in Earth’s average surface temperature over the past century primarily due to the greenhouse gases released as people burn fossil fuels. The global average surface temperature rose 0.6 to 0.9 degrees Celsius (1.1 to 1.6° F) between 1906 and 2005, and the rate of temperature increase has nearly doubled in the last 50 years. Temperatures are certain to go up further.

      The atmosphere today contains more greenhouse gas molecules, so more of the infrared energy emitted by the surface ends up being absorbed by the atmosphere. Since some of the extra energy from a warmer atmosphere radiates back down to the surface, Earth’s surface temperature rises. By increasing the concentration of greenhouse gases, we are making Earth’s atmosphere a more efficient greenhouse.

      We must all remember that this issue about warming the earth is very dangerous to all of us because the thing that our planet is being destroy by many changes, all the people living on earth is affected and in critical if we continue to avoid this issue. Everyone must help in caring and clearing the earth because everyone specially human are liable to this pollution and some global changes that is happening now.

      Is Global warming fact or fiction? Some scientists up until to this day takes it as just a theory, or hoax with no proof at all, to cause human beings to panic or be paranoid. No matter how long it takes them to prove if it is not true, the consequences of it can already be felt and seen not by just one individual but by the whole population. Where in fact, some have felt first hand, the devastating effects of it.

      There are a lot of problems Earth needs to face in which Global Warming may presumably be one of the worst , for it is like a tree with its roots as the corresponding effects. What could the possible solutions be? We don’t lack in technology nor the knowledge to come up with a solution, but one thing we are all missing, is unity. Unity in, which may be conquered with laws made by the efforts of the government. A rule or guide that can unite the people of its nation. It’s just that each individual does help but we all blindly act moving in different directions creating no progress at all.

      Human behavior is changing fast. So does the Earth's temperature. Global warming is primarily a problem of too much carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere—which acts as a blanket, trapping heat and warming the planet. As we burn fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas for energy or cut down and burn forests to create pastures and plantations, carbon accumulates and overloads our atmosphere. What will it take for us to take the dangers of Global Warming seriously? We read about it, hear about it and see the evidence all around us, but we shrug our shoulders when asked to do our share to fix the problem. Yes, it seems like a problem that’s too big for one person to solve, but you’re not just one person. Your efforts when mimicked all over the world will make a big difference. But if everyone starts thinking that nothing can be done, then we’re doomed. Global warming has the capability to wipe humanity off the face of the Earth. Our planet is warming up, but it’s been warmer in the ancient past – Mother Earth can handle herself. It will go on revolving around the sun, but without us. We will not survive.

Global warming isnot only affecting the nature, but it affects the life and homes of millions of people. The changes of globalwarming is visible from the highest mountains to deep in the oceans and it extinguished different parts of the earth and it’s also creates rich bio-diversity. Lack of awareness on effect of the global warming is an essential problem. Little knowledge on an environmental problems and global warming will affectthe student-teachers and society to suffer a lot. Particularly by increasing the knowledge about global warming may help the society and students to know how to survive.

They trap the infrared rays instead of being returned back to space. This may cause melting of polar ice cap which may result in the rise of ocean levels, increased climatic temperature that may affect ocean currents, weather patterns and agriculture. Roberto V.

Pope John Paul II once said, "It is the task of human beings to care for, preserve and cultivate the treasures of creation." The Pope is becoming aware of the environmental issues impacting on the world toady and is enforcing that we must do something before God's creation is all but lost.

      Global warming and climate change are terms for the observed century-scale rise in the average temperature of the Earth's climate system and its related effects.

      Multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming. Although the increase of near-surface atmospheric temperature is the measure of global warming often reported in the popular press, most of the additional energy stored in the climate system since 1970 has gone into ocean warming. The remainder has melted ice and warmed the continents and atmosphere. Many of the observed changes since the 1950s are unprecedented over decades to millennia.

      Scientific understanding of global warming is increasing. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported in 2014 that scientists were more than 95% certain that global warming is mostly being caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHG) and other human (anthropogenic) activities. Climate model projections summarized in the report indicated that during the 21st century the global surface temperature is likely to rise a further 0.3 to 1.7 °C (0.5 to 3.1 °F) for their lowest emissions scenario using stringent mitigation and 2.6 to 4.8 °C (4.7 to 8.6 °F) for their highest.These findings have been recognized by the national science academies of the major industrialized nations[12][b] and are not disputed by any scientific body of national or international standing.

      Future climate change and associated impacts will differ from region to region around the globe. Anticipated effects include warming global temperature, rising sea levels, changing precipitation, and expansion of deserts in the subtropics.Warming is expected to be greater over land than over the oceans and greatest in the Arctic, with the continuing retreat of glaciers, permafrost and sea ice. Other likely changes include more frequent extreme weather events including heat waves, droughts, heavy rainfall with floods and heavy snowfall;[18] ocean acidification; and species extinctions due to shifting temperature regimes. Effects significant to humans include the threat to food security from decreasing crop yields and the abandonment of populated areas due to rising sea levels.

      More than 100 years ago, people around the world started burning large amounts of coal, oil, and natural gas to power their homes, factories, and vehicles. Today, most of the world relies on these fossil fuels for their energy needs. Burning fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide, a heat-trapping gas, into the atmosphere, which is the main reason why the climate is changing. The climate of the planet has changed tremendously over the last few decades, mostly due to pollution, greenhouse gases and depletion of the ozone layer that protects the earth. Global warming is one of the main factors of climate change, leading to excessive flooding, forest fires and rise in global temperatures.

      Studying climate change helps us to understand what causes the changes, prepares us for any natural hazard or extreme changes that can be predicted, helps us identify both man-made and natural causes for climate change and helps us to understand how climate change has an impact on human health and the environment.

At this stage, it is too late to undo the damages that climate changes has done to the environment. The least thing we can do is to regulate environment-friendly methods and we should come together to solve this crisis. Carrying out purposeful ways will eventually reduces further environmental impacts. In businesses, environment plays a big role in providing materials and in maintaining sustainability.

      "The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it." -Robert Swan

      Someone will stand, someone will lead, and someone will make a change. This mindset won't help with our global warming. By believing with these thoughts, we put our responsibilities on someone's shoulder. We neglect our obligations yet we use our surrounding, we disregard things we supposed to do yet we happily enjoy the comfort nature's offering. Can someone stand still even if everyone is ruining Mother Earth? Abusive businessmen, they are examples of real pollution. When all the animals are dead, when all the water is poisoned, when the air we breath is unsafe, that's the only time we will discover, we can't eat money. We can't live only by the means of money. I can't change the world, but we can! As future business manager and accountants we can make a change! We can start it by admitting that we are the owner of this Earth, God has given us the power to manipulate it, He gave his masterpiece as a whole, it is our obligation to keep it that way. This alarming issue must spread so everyone can help and be held responsible. Let's love our environment as the bible verse says, "The Lord God took the man and put Him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it." Genesis 2:15

      A warming climate will bring changes that can affect our water supplies, agriculture, power and transportation systems, the natural environment, and even our own health and safety. The devastating impacts of climate change are clear. Our world is warmer than ever before, and people and wildlife are already suffering the consequences. Carbon dioxide can stay in the atmosphere for nearly a century, so Earth will continue to warm in the coming decades. The warmer it gets, the greater the risk for more severe changes to the climate and Earth's system. But that’s nothing compared to what we’re leaving future generations if these trends continue. Although it's difficult to predict the exact impacts of climate change, what's clear is that the climate we are accustomed to is no longer a reliable guide for what to expect in the future. By making choices that reduce greenhouse gas pollution, and preparing for the changes that are already underway, we can reduce risks from climate change. Our decisions today will shape the world our children and grandchildren will live in.

      Climate change now represents at least as great a threat to the number of species surviving on Earth as habitat-destruction and modification. One of the biggest issues facing us right now is global warming. Its effects on animals and on agriculture are indeed frightening, and the effects on the human population are even scarier. The facts about global warming are often debated in politics and the media, but, unfortunately, even if we disagree about the causes, global warming effects are real, global, and measurable. The causes are mainly from us, the human race, and the effects on us will be severe. Human activities like burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, industrialization and pollution are considered as few of the factors responsible for global warming. Unless the critical issue of global warming does not hit every person on earth, it will be very difficult to prevent the world from burning due to global warming in the near future. Lets preserve the remaining beauty of our nature so the next generation will appreciate what he had when we were still here.

      Climate change is a serious problem that we need to stop or prevent because time does not stop means that are time is running also the climate change. It’s getting worse if we don’t make an action to this problem many bad things will happen. Why there’s a global warming? Of course, because of the pollution that comes from the smoke of cars, factories, some chemicals and many more that’s why the temperature is changing. Both of these are not simple but a major problem, not just by government but also to us, all the people who live in this world. We need to help each to prevent it from getting worse because we all know that we are the one who will benefit from it.

      Global warming and climate change are terms for the observed century-scale rise in the average temperature of the Earth's climate system and its related effects. Multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming. Although the increase of near-surface atmospheric temperature is the measure of global warming often reported in the popular press, most of the additional energy stored in the climate system since 1970 has gone into ocean warming. The remainder has melted ice and warmed the continents and atmosphere. Many of the observed changes since the 1950's are unprecedented over decades to millennia.

      Global warming is primarily a problem of too much carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere—which acts as a blanket, trapping heat and warming the planet. As we burn fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas for energy or cut down and burn forests to create pastures and plantations, carbon accumulates and overloads our atmosphere. Certain waste management and agricultural practices aggravate the problem by releasing other potent global warming gases, such as methane and nitrous oxide. See the pie chart for a breakdown of heat-trapping global warming emissions by economic sector.

      Global warming is relatively connected to mankind. It is a general and scientific assumption that the temperature of our earth is constantly increasing and will later cause great climate changes in the whole world. As I searched, ecological scientists believe that it is all because of man’s unfriendly environmental activities. As a result of global warming, ice is melting all over the world, less fresh water will be available in future, etc. This brings us to conclude that both environment and living organisms are threatened by damaging effects of global warming.

And meanwhile, our planet must still supply us and all living things with air, water, food and safe places to live. If we don't act now, climate change will rapidly alter the lands and waters we all depend upon for survival, leaving our future children and grandchildren with a very different world. And generating electricity from renewable energy rather than fossil fuels offers significant public health benefits. The air and water pollution emitted by coal and natural gas plants is linked to breathing problems, neurological damage, heart attacks, and cancer. Replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy has been found to reduce premature mortality and lost workdays, and it reduces overall healthcare costs.

      Global warming refers to the recent and ongoing rise in global average temperature near Earth's surface. It is caused mostly by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Global warming is causing climate patterns to change. Because there are more and more greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, more heat is trapped which makes the Earth warmer. This is known as GLOBAL WARMING. A lot of scientists agree that man's activities are making the natural greenhouse effect stronger. Global warming is projected to have a number of effects on the oceans. Ongoing effects include rising sea levels due to thermal expansion and melting of glaciers and ice sheets, and warming of the ocean surface, leading to increased temperature stratification.

      Global Warming is the increase of Earth's average surface temperature due to effect of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels or from deforestation, which trap heat that would otherwise escape from Earth. This is a type of greenhouse effect. Global warming is primarily a problem of too much carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere—which acts as a blanket, trapping heat and warming the planet. As we burn fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas for energy or cut down and burn forests to create pastures and plantations, carbon accumulates and overloads our atmosphere. Global warming has serious implications for our health, environment, and economy. Dangerous heat waves are increasing in severity and frequency. Sea level rise is accelerating. Extreme storms are on the rise in some areas. More severe droughts are occurring in others. Collectively, these effects pose a threat to the entire planet — including you, your community, and your family. In order to save the environment we need to be aware of what we are doing, buying, using, and what it does to the environment. Saving energy reduces air pollution and greenhouse gases. The less we pollute our environment, the more we prevent global warming. Let us reuse what we would easily throw away and conserve for a future. What we can recycle let us do so. Let us come together and join hands to protect our environment.

      Jessica Ocampo. BSBA1-1. The planet is warming, from North Pole to South Pole, and everywhere in between. Globally, the mercury is already up more than 1 degree Fahrenheit (0.8 degree Celsius), and even more in sensitive polar regions. And the effects of rising temperatures aren’t waiting for some far-flung future. They’re happening right now. Signs are appearing all over, and some of them are surprising. The heat is not only melting glaciers and sea ice, it’s also shifting precipitation patterns and setting animals on the move. There are many possible wedges, including improvements to energy efficiency and vehicle fuel economy (so less energy has to be produced), and increases in wind and solar power, hydrogen produced from renewable sources, biofuels (produced from crops), natural gas, and nuclear power. There is also the potential to capture the carbon dioxide emitted from fossil fuels and store it underground—a process called “carbon sequestration.”

      In addition to reducing the gases we emit to the atmosphere, we can also increase the amount of gases we take out of the atmosphere. Plants and trees absorb CO2 as they grow, “sequestering” carbon naturally. Increasing forestlands and making changes to the way we farm could increase the amount of carbon we’re storing.

      Some of these technologies have drawbacks, and different communities will make different decisions about how to power their lives, but the good news is that there are a variety of options to put us on a path toward a stable climate.

No matter how long it takes them to prove if it is not true, the consequences of it can already be felt and seen not by just one individual but by the whole population. Where in fact, some have felt first hand, the devastating effects of it.

What could the possible solutions be? We don’t lack in technology nor the knowledge to come up with a solution, but one thing we are all missing, is unity. Unity in, which may be conquered with laws made by the efforts of the government. A rule or guide that can unite the people of its nation. It’s just that each individual does help but we all blindly act moving in different directions creating no progress at all.

Global warming has also brought numerous effects on people, land and animals, for instance, decrease in snow cover and the rising ocean levels. Since increase in temperature leads to an increase in precipitation, global warming creates extreme storms and overall extreme weather. Other regions experience drought or intense tropical cyclones and floods.

      "The warnings about global warming have been extremely clear for a long time. We are facing a global climate crisis. It is deepening. We are entering a period of consequences." -Al Gore

      Many days, many weeks, many months, many years, many decades, and many centuries have been seen today as nonsense because of the first time when global warming had begun. Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the earth's atmosphere (especially a sustained increase that causes climatic changes). As our world becomes warmer and warmer, all living creatures are all affected. Global warming is one of the causes of climate change.

      It is very important for us to have knowledge about global warming because we will know the disadvantages of this to all of us and we will be able to find ways on how to avoid or remove it in our nature. They said that 'change is inevitable and permanent'... but for me, not in the case of climate change. We can eliminate this if we stand up together and do our duties as stewards of our nature.

Instead of just throwing it away, why don't we just put it in our pocket and wait until we see a garbage bin? Those kind of little responsible act can mean a lot to preserving earth. Be responsible enough to take good care of the place that supports your life.

      The massive amount of people has had highlydestructive impacts on the earth's environment. These impacts occur on two levels: global and local. Onthe global level, there is the accumulation of green house gases that deplete the ozone layer, theextinction of species, and a global food shortage. On the local level, there is erosion of soils (andthe loss of vegetation), the depletion of water supply, and toxification of the air and water. The earthis dynamic though, all of these aspects are interrelated, and no one impact is completely isolated. Allof these destructive elements can be traced to our enormous population. As the population increases, sodo all of the economic, social, and technological impacts. The concept of momentum of population growth is one that must be considered. It states thatareas with traditionally high fertility rates will have a very young structure age. to make the long explanation short, the more population the more damage it can give in our environment.

      Global warming is the term used to describe a gradual increase in the average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and its oceans, a change that is believed to be permanently changing the Earth's climate. There are different ways to stop or prevent this problem. One way is let us be energy efficient, when appliances are not in use, we will just simply turn them off and unplug it. Another way is instead of cutting trees (deforestation), let us replant trees. We can also help to reduce the demand for fossil fuels which is the major cause of global warming. We don't need to wait the government to make a solution because each individual can bring an important help about this issue.

      Since through the years, human have made many changes in the environment. They have cut down trees and planted crops in their place. The fast growing population has something to do with the environment. The more people dwell in a certain area, the more houses and buildings are needed to be and salts beds into both residential and commercial areas. And because of the globalization being made more industrial plants were being built. Industrial plants fill the air with smoke and dangerous chemicals, pollute the lakes and streams with waste and toxic by products, and wear out or damage parts of the surrounding land. In short, human inventions brought about progress, but destroyed the natural environment. These environmental problems have endangered not only humans, but also most of other living creatures.

We need to turn off lights, replace inefficient bulbs with low-power ones, and not leave equipment on standby. Secondly, we need to control our surging populations. Each of us can make a decision regarding family size. This has a huge impact on the size of our cities and the need for food and more agricultural land. In addition, we need to consider eating less meat and more vegetables and fruit, in order to reduce the amount of land needed for meat.

      As time goes by, the temperature in our atmosphere gradually goes higher and higher as a result of climate change and global warming. Most climate scientists agree that the main cause of the current global warming trend is human expansion of the "greenhouse effect" that results when the atmosphere traps heat radiating from Earth toward space. Certain gases in the atmosphere block heat from escaping. As a result, not only the temperature goes higher but also the sea levels as well. Changes in temperature and precipitation patterns increase the frequency, duration, and intensity of other extreme weather events, such as floods, droughts, heat waves, and tornadoes. Other effects of global warming include higher or lower agricultural yields, further glacial retreat, reduced summer stream flows, species extinctions. As a further effect of global warming, diseases like malaria are returning into areas where they have been extinguished earlier. Therefore, we must help in restoring the natural beauty of our planet by our own little ways.

Global warming affects us all, interconnected effects of this are extreme weather conditions like extreme heat this can cause rising in sea level as the ice in the arctic poles melts the water increases. Destruction of ecosystems because of the imbalance in temperature, our environment is more prone to forests fires then later on can cause extinction.

      What is it about global warming that concerns us the most, is its effects. Effects that are already starting to impact mankind with record-breaking temperatures occurring more frequently. As temperatures rise, heat extremes on a par with the heat waves are also becoming more common. Everyone is feeling the impact, particularly the poor, as weather extremes become more common and risks to food, water, and energy security increase.

      The world is locked into 1.5°C global warming, posing severe risks to lives and livelihoods around the world. Such an increase could have potentially catastrophic consequences for mankind, causing the global sea level to rise more than 30 centimeters by 2100, droughts to become more severe and placing almost 90 percent of coral reefs at risk of extinction. These changes are already underway, with global temperatures 0.8 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial times, and the impact on food security, water supplies and livelihoods is just beginning. Studying what global warming could bring about while these changes are only underway is a must for us, future accountants. Having known the effects of a changing climate would allow us to better understand how climate change affects the way we live and our way of making a living.

These problems have accelerated in recent decades as we’ve consumed ever more scarce resources, including oil, coal, metals, and water, to create ever more products to live in our homes, work in our business, and accumulate things. his behavior is often called “unsustainable” because we are depleting some of those resources ever faster, we are needing to provide for ever more people as worldwide population growth continues unabated, and we are degrading many parts of our environment—land, seas, and air—as we try to “sustain” our current way of life.

      Most people aren’t even aware of how their daily choices are affecting the climate or the larger environment.

It occurs due to rise in global warming which occurs due to increase in temperature of atmosphere by burning of fossil fuels and release of harmful gases by industries. Climate change has various harmful effects but not limited to melting of polar ice, change in seasons, occurrence of new diseases, frequent occurrence of floods and change in overall weather scenario. Climate changes like global warming is the result of human practices like emission of Greenhouse gases. Global warming leads to rising temperatures of the oceans and the earth’ surface causing melting of polar ice caps, rise in sea levels and also unnatural patterns of precipitation such as flash floods, excessive snow or desertification.

In addition, this section attempts to provide insights into what governments, companies, international institutions, and other organizations are attempting to do about this issue, as well as the challenges they face. Some of the major conferences in recent years are also discussed. The climate is changing. The earth is warming up, and there is now overwhelming scientific consensus that it is happening, and human-induced. With global warming on the increase and species and their habitats on the decrease, chances for ecosystems to adapt naturally are diminishing. Many are agreed that climate change may be one of the greatest threats facing the planet. Recent years show increasing temperatures in various regions, and/or increasing extremities in weather patterns. Though there are many natural causes of global warming and climate change, human interaction can help slow the negative impacts to our atmosphere. Things like recycling (one of the biggest contenders in the fight against global warming) are very easy habits for people to pick-up that can help the Earth in a major way. For examples, when buying new appliances, try and look for ones that are energy efficient. Don’t leave appliances on, when not using something (like the TV for example) be sure to turn it completely off. By not leaving appliances on people can conserve up to forty percent more energy. Using pot covers when cooking food can save tons of energy needed to cook the dish. More than seventy percent of energy can be saved by using appliances like pressure cookers and steamers. Showering can save up to four times the amount of energy as running a bath can, not to mention use much less water and more. Global warming and climate change are important for everyone to understand. The more we hurt our planet’s atmosphere, the more we put ourselves in jeopardy of global disaster.

      Global warming refers to an average increase in the Earth's atmosphere primarily due to the so called "greenhouse effect". The destruction of the ozone layer in the atmosphere and the global greenhouse effect contribute in the occurrence of this phenomenon. There will be heavier rainfall in already heavy rainfall months and lower rainfall during dry months.

      Climate change is the long-term average of a region's weather events lumped together.There are some effects of greenhouse gases and global warming: melting of ice caps, rising sea levels, change in climatic patterns, spread diseases, economic consequences, increased droughts and heat waves. Other effects are bleaching of coral reefs, El Nino and La Nina phenomenon.

      As a future teacher, I want to teach my students the proper segregation of waste, the important of planting trees, unplug the unused appliances. Small things like this can help to prevent this so called global warming.

      There are several causes of recent climate change, but all have something in common – people. Recent warming is a side effect of many things that people do – like driving cars, heating homes, running factories, and transforming forests into towns. Our landfills and farm animals are to blame for recent climate change too. Changes in the way land is used also have an impact on climate. For example, when trees and other plants are cut down to make way for new buildings or parking lots, climate warms because less carbon dioxide is taken out of the atmosphere without the plants. Plus, the asphalt and buildings tend to hold onto more heat than forests and fields, so when warmed by the Sun, they stay warm for some time. If it were not for greenhouse gases trapping heat in the atmosphere, the Earth would be a very cold place. Greenhouse gases keep the Earth warm through a process called the greenhouse effect. They exist naturally in the atmosphere, where they help keep the Earth warm enough for plants and animals to live. But people are adding extra greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. These extra gases are causing the Earth to get warmer, setting off all sorts of other changes around the world—on land, in the oceans, and in the atmosphere. And these changes affect people, plants, and animals in many ways. Global warming is expected to have far-reaching, long-lasting and, in many cases, devastating consequences for planet Earth.

Most climate scientists agree the main cause of the current global warming trend is human expansion of the "greenhouse effect" — warming that results when the atmosphere traps heat radiating from Earth toward space. Certain gases in the atmosphere block heat from escaping. Why is global warming a problem? Global warming is primarily a problem of too much carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere—which acts as a blanket, trapping heat and warming the planet. There is no single solution to global warming, which is primarily a problem of too much heat-trapping carbon dioxide (CO2), methane and nitrous oxide in the atmosphere. What will happen if there is global warming? Since people are causing global warming, people can mitigate global warming, if they act in time. Greenhouse gases are long-lived, so the planet will continue to warm and changes will continue to happen far into the future, but the degree to which global warming changes life on Earth depends on our decisions now.

      Climate change is any substantial change in Earth’s climate that lasts for an extended period of time. Global warming refers to climate change that causes an increase in the average temperature of the lower atmosphere. Global warming can have many different causes, but it is most commonly associated with human interference, specifically the release of excessive amounts of greenhouse gases. (EPA, 2006)

      Greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), water vapor, and fluorinated gases, act like a greenhouse around the earth. This means that they let the heat from the Sun into the atmosphere, but do not allow the heat to escape back into space. The more greenhouse gases there are, the larger the percentage of heat that is trapped inside the earth’s atmosphere. The earth could not exist in its present state (that is, with life) without the presence of some naturally occurring greenhouse gases, such as CO2, CH4, and water vapor. Without any greenhouse gases no heat would be trapped in atmosphere, so the earth would be extremely cold. (NASA, 2002)

      Naturally occurring greenhouse gases (not fluorinated gases) are good in naturally occurring amounts; it’s when people start contributing excessive amounts of them that greenhouse gases become a problem. With excessive greenhouse gas buildup, the earth’s atmosphere warms to unnatural temperatures which causes, among other things, sea level to rise. Global warming also causes sea surface temperatures to rise, precipitation patterns to change, etc.. Global warming and climate change are terms for the observed century-scale rise in the average temperature of the Earth's climate system and its related effects. Multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming. Many of the observed changes since the 1950s are unprecedented over tens to thousands of years

      Global warming is the term used to describe a gradual increase in the average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and its oceans, a change that is believed to be permanently changing the Earth's climate.

      In relation with teaching profession, I must learn how to cope with different moods of my student but I can be also the who can control it.

      Global warming is not a joke. We can’t cure it but we can prevent it not to get worst. I as a future educator I can’t contribute a huge help for the problem but I can mold the students mind to be aware of what’s happening, a small act can lead to bigger change. I can also help in the community by giving seminars and leading some projects for our world. It is not too late to do some changes.

      The world's nations would need to cut their greenhouse gas emissions by a lot. And even that wouldn't stop all global warming. Emissions would then have to keep falling until humans were hardly emitting any extra greenhouse gases by the end of the century. We'd also likely need to pull some carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. The planet is warming, from North Pole to South Pole. Higher temperatures are worsening many types of disasters, including storms, heat waves, floods, and droughts. A warmer climate creates an atmosphere that can collect, retain, and drop more water, changing weather patterns in such a way that wet areas become wetter and dry areas drier. Rising global temperatures have been accompanied by changes in weather and climate. Many places have seen changes in rainfall, resulting in more floods, droughts, or intense rain, as well as more frequent and severe heat waves. As these and other changes become more pronounced in the coming decades, they will likely present challenges to our society and our environment. In connection to teaching, I must share all the knowledge that I have in this topic to my students so that in the future they know how to give importance in our world.

      Global warming and climate change are terms for the observed century-scale rise in the average temperature of the Earth's climate system and its related effects. Multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming. Many of the observed changes since the 1950s are unprecedented over tens to thousands of years. Global Warming is the increase of Earth's average surface temperature due to effect of greenhouse gasses, such as carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels or from deforestation, which trap heat that would otherwise escape from Earth.

      Over the past 50 years, the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history. And experts see the trend is accelerating: All but one of the 16 hottest years in NASA’s 134-year record have occurred since 2000. Climate change deniers have argued that there has been a pause or a slowdown in rising global temperatures, but several recent studies, including a 2015 paper published in the journal Science, have disproved this claim. And scientists say that unless we curb global-warming emissions, average U.S. temperatures could increase by up to 10 degrees

      Most climate scientists agree the main cause of the current global warming trend is human expansion of the "greenhouse effect"1 — warming that results when the atmosphere traps heat radiating from Earth toward space. Certain gases in the atmosphere block heat from escaping.

      Since people are causing global warming, people can mitigate global warming, if they act in time. Greenhouse gases are long-lived, so the planet will continue to warm and changes will continue to happen far into the future, but the degree to which global warming changes life on Earth depends on our decisions now.

      We should act now. We should help together to save as soon as possible the loveliest place we live now.

      Global warming is already having significant and costly effects and these consequences will only intensify as the planet’s temperature continues to rise. In this Problem or what we call the Global warming we have many solutions first Reduce emissions

      We must significantly reduce the heat-trapping emissions we are putting into the atmosphere. As individuals, we can help by taking action to reduce our personal carbon emissions. But to fully address the threat of global warming, we must demand action from our elected leaders.

      Stop deforestation

      Tropical deforestation accounts for about 10 percent of the world’s heat-trapping emissions. Reducing tropical deforestation can significantly lower global warming emissions and plays an integral role in a comprehensive long-term solution to global warming.Prepare for impacts

      Certain consequences of global warming are now inevitable, including sea level rise, more frequent and severe heat waves, and growing wildfire risks. Even as we work to reduce global warming emissions, we must also prepare for this dangerous new reality.

      Global warming refers to the gradual increase in the temperature of the Earth's surface, atmosphere and oceans as a result of greenhouse gases. Carbon monoxide emissions created by deforestation and burning fossil fuels create a barrier that traps the sun's heat on the Earth causing the planet to warm up. Global warming starts with the greenhouse effect, which is created by the relationship between the radiation from the sun and the Earth's atmosphere. Human activity also introduces specific types of gases into the Earth's atmosphere. Global warming indicates a change in the average temperature of the Earth as a whole, while climate change involves several factors in a localized situation. The media uses the two terms interchangeably, which often leads to confusion.

      We are responsible for our environment. Why do we have global warming? It is due to the pollutions of smoke, cars, factories and the chemicals that's why the temperature is changing. We need to protect our environment because it is the source of our living.

      All of us are already aware of the issue about the global warming but this article is another eye-opener for all of us. It's true that we have to be well taught about this matter because it is greatly affecting our mother earth. It is just so saddening to think that we are the ones responsible for this and yet most of us still do not do things to help it be prevented. We have to be aware for us to know what to avoid for we are already in this time of year, rapidly, destroying our earth---our home.

      The change of climate in our globe really affect our daily lives and other living organisms. It is very sad to face that our planet was facing this crisis. I was thinking about the new generations to come if they will experience breathing with fresh air or experiencing our nature. I hope that we can do some things that can help our mother nature and this little things can really help to make our planet healthy again.
