Earth’s temperature is a vital aspect to Earth and its surroundings. The atmospheric temperature along with natural gases is the significant reasons why Earth inhabits all of its life. When there are changes that alter the natural affects of Earth’s environment there are factors that places the environment at risk. Increase warming of global temperatures account as a major concern of Earth’s surroundings. Global warming is a prominent source to consider how and why the environment, coastal zones, water resources, agriculture, food supply, and the health of human life have changed. There are numerous reasons why global warming has taken such effect over the environment, but natural causes and human activity are the main factors. The main purpose of this research is to provide factors of why global warming occurs and information as to why global warming has such an effect on Earth’s geologic events along with solutions to control global warming.
The importance of understanding global warming will control the impact it has on the Earth’s environment. Global warming is the increased warming effect of the atmospheric temperature resulting in a change of the Earth’s climate (USGS.gov, 2008). The increase warming of the temperature is the result from two greenhousegases such as carbon dioxide and methane that are being filtered and trapped into the Earth’s atmosphere. The layers of Earth’s atmosphere is to protect life from high-energy radiation and the frigid vacuum of space (nasa.gov, 2010), but if the atmosphere’s layers becomes thinner, its vital role of protection will diminish. Landfill wastes, industries and deforestation are why global warming exists, in turn will affect all life on Earth.
Various conceptions are why global temperatures gradually rise, but the main factors of its effects are from human activities that consist of fossil fuels, landfill waste, industrial factories and deforestation. Some natural causes are also responsible, for the increase of global temperatures, but they are not as prominent as human activities. Natural sources are sources that are created by nature. Examples of natural causes of global warming are the release of methane gas from tundra’s, wetlands and volcanic eruptions that pollutes the atmosphere from various gases that causes climates to change from natural disasters as these (Global Warming Causes, n.d). Human causes are comprised from human activities that contribute to the global warming effects such as carbon dioxide, burning of fossil fuels from cars; methane, natural gases released from landfill waste; and nitrogen oxides from farming (A Cooler Climate.com, n.d). When all of these components are acted upon humanity’s daily activities harmful gases contribute to the global warming effect. So, the effect from greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide causes many negative effects that human life and the environment will encounter. Once the natural...
