Global Warming

By: Dylan Hilbrands

What causes global warming?

One of the main causes they believe is greenhouse gases emitted by humans. These would be fossil fuels coming from car and other gas machines, factories, and electricity production. The main gas would be C02, also known as carbon dioxide. Other gases such as methane gases also contribute to this. These would be landfill gases and gases that come from agriculture, mostly form the poop of grazing animals, and gases from fertilizers.

What can humans do to help reduce global warming?

Three things they can do is reduce, reuse, and recycle. This means to use a reusable water bottle instead of a disposable one. By doing this you can help reduce the amount of disposable water bottles. You can recycle paper, plastic, and cans. You can use less heat and air condition. Do this by adding more insulation to your walls, or by installing weather stripping around windows and doors. Use less electricity and drive less. You can carpool with friends.
