Today, we are going to talk about Global Warming. This is a serious issue that we need to deal with. We messed up this world and it is up to us to fix it.
Now, my teachers, parents, and role models always say that we can change the world and I do believe that but how can we change the world if we don't get the chance to change it. But we can - what I am about to say is probably really cheesy but it is true - if we really believe and band together.
Okay, so, one of the major changes that come with Global Warming is the temperature rising and that can be very dangerous because that affects the weather to which means more hurricanes, volcanoes, tsunami, and much more natural disasters. But we can help stop it.
Climate Change has happened constantly over the history of the Earth, including the coming and going of ice ages. Climate Change is different because people are putting Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere very quickly.
Green House Gases are part of the reason why this is happening... there is simply just too much of them. Water Vapor. The most abundant greenhouse gas, but importantly, it acts as a feedback to the climate. Water Vapor increases as the earth warms, but so does the possibility of clouds and precipitation, making these some of the most important feedback mechanisms to the greenhouse effect.
Carbon Dioxide. A minor but very important component of the atmosphere, Carbon Dioxide is released through natural processes such as deforestation, land use changes, and burning fossil fuels. Humans have increased the atmosphere CO2 concentration by 48% since the industrial revolution began. This is the most important long - lived "forcing" of climate change.
And a lot more of other Greenhouse gases this is affecting every day life for us. When we use electricity, plugging in devices, driving cars, and cooling homes, and also when we burn fossil fuels. We can chnage the world though.
