Global warming is a big environmental and social issue all over the world which everyone must know especially our kids and children as they are the future. People should know its meaning, causes, effects and solutions to solve it immediately. Its threatening effects are increasing day by day and creating danger for human life. Global warming is the main and only reason of rising sea level, flooding, changes in weather patterns, storms, cyclone, epidemic diseases etc. The only solution to solve the issue of global warming is the individual level social awareness. People must be aware of its meaning, cause, bad effects and other things about global warming to get it eradicated from worldwide.
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. It has been estimated that in next 50 to 100 years the temperature of the Earth would be increased to a great level which would create a big problem of living on Earth.
There is great debate among many people, and sometimes in the news, on whether global warming is real. 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 0.80C over the past 100 years.
The highly known and most basic cause of increasing the Earth's temperature is continuous rise in the atmospheric carbon dioxide. Rise in carbon dioxide level is the use of fossil fuels like coal and oil, deforestation etc.
The increased volumes of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases released by the burning of fossil fuels, land cleaning, agriculture, and other human activities, are believed to be the primary sources of the global warming that has occurred over the past 50 years.
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.
In order to stop the life threatening effects of the global warming, we should take a permanent break from all the bad habits causing increase in the CO2 level and other green-house gases leading to the green house effect and then earth surface warming. We should stop deforestation, lessen the use of electricity, stop burning of wood etc.
