GOBAL WARMING.

Definition of global warming.

A gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons.

The Causes of Global Warming.

  1. Global warming is primarily a problem of too much carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere—which acts as a blanket, trapping heat and warming the planet.
  2. Certain waste management and agricultural practices aggravate the problem by releasing other potent global warming gases, such as methane and nitrous oxide.
  3. Its effects on animals and on agriculture are indeed frightening, and the effects on the human population are even scarier.

Physical Changes.

The planet is warming, from North Pole to South Pole, and everywhere in between. Globally, the mercury is already up more than 1 degree Fahrenheit (0.8 degree Celsius), and even more in sensitive polar regions. And the effects of rising temperatures aren’t waiting for some far-flung future.

Chemical Reactions.

Global climate change is a very complex subject. All of Earth's spheres --the biosphere (living things), hydrosphere(water), lithosphere (rock/soil), and atmosphere (air)--work together to create and maintain climate. However, the biosphere, humans in particular, has had an increasingly greater impact on climate in recent decades.

Harmful Effects.

Global climate change has already had observable effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner.

1:solution.

  1. Do not use electricity to heat (heater, heat hot water, cooking, etc ...) 70% of the energy is lost before reaching home, instead use solar heaters, or gas, CO2 and will save money.

2:solution

Drive less: ANDA, cycling, public transport USED. You CAN SAVE 30 grams of CO2 per 4 KM AND THE NOT DRIVE.

3:solution.

RECYCLE

You can save

OVER 730 KILOS OF CARBON DIOXIDE PER YEAR to recycle only

HALF of the waste produced
