Global warming is a huge problem going on in the world that I think often gets overlooked in everyone’s day to day lives. Global warming has been a rising threat that has been observed since the mid 20th century. The rise has been caused by the expansion of the greenhouse effect humans have affected which results in the atmosphere traps heat radiating from the Earth towards space. There are 4 main gases that humans use that contributes to global warming which include water (H2O), nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2).
Global warming has come with many issues that can eventually threaten humanity if there is no effort to change and make the atmosphere clean again. Global warming has shifted weather patterns, threatens food levels, raising sea levels causing possible floods, and many more global impacts. The global temperature has risen 0.85 degrees celcius from 1880-2012. The sea level has also risen 19 cm from the melting ice in the same amount of time. The global temperatures have been rising since the industrial revolution which has lead to melting ice and more problems.
Obviously we are in need of a change to prevent this global issue from getting worse and to have a better future for us and the people who will come after us. There are plenty of ways to do your part in your home by making it more efficient but also you can help by speaking up and making more aware of the severity of this issue. Also a big way to help would be saving water and reducing your waste by using refillable water bottles.
