What is Global Warming?
Since 1750, humans have emitted 5,732,052,885,281
pounds of Co2, and this number grows by the second. This gas is the root
of the heated issue of global
It is melting icebergs in the polar areas, drying up ponds, and driving
animals to extinction. Global warming is when the temperature increases
in the earth's atmosphere. One of the main causes of global warming is
greenhouse gases. If the
temperature rose 4.5 degrees, 30% of the earth's species would disappear;
if the temperature were to increase one degree at the Equator, it would
increase 12 degrees in the Polar Areas. Through the 250 million
years, that humans have been living, there have been 5 major extinctions
by the climate change. Animals that are in colder climates, or the northern
hemisphere, are more likely to disappear than animals in the southern
hemisphere, or a warmer climate. If more people in the world were to recycle
less electricity, we could possibly stop global warming. It is not just
affecting the animals, it is affecting us, and if too much ice melts, the
overflow and may possibly flood the earth. Polar bears are starving to
death and losing their families, because all of the ice is melting.
Climate Change is caused by sunrays that enter the Earth’s atmosphere. Usually, they are able to rebound and leave the atmosphere, but with the pollution going into the air, it only makes the atmosphere thicker, trapping the gases, causing the world to heat up. When the heat hits the icebergs, the iceberg slowly melts. When the sun hits the water, the ocean heats up, also causing the icebergs to melt at an alarming rate.
