Conserving our environment

part 6

human population growth

What many people do not realize is we live in a world of limited resources. one day all of our resources will be used up and we will be competing for survival. The human population goes up every second. The more humans we have it this world is just more resources that will be used up. Death somewhat balances out the human population and keeps it from becoming too overpopulated.

global warming

global warming is the rise in earths average temperature over-time. It has been theorized that over 98% of the cause of global warming is greenhouse gases or other human activity. The greenhouse effect is what radiation warms the earths surface from its normal temperature. Both of these things contribute to the hole in the ozone layer, which is a large hole in our ozone over Antarctica.
