Due to greenhouse gases effect, global warming occurs. And because of global warming, polar bears are suffering.
It will help the environment.
What is Anthropogenic Greenhouse effect? How is it different from other gases?
Humans have accelerated the greenhouse effect! But how?
Many factories produce long-lasting industrial gases that do not occur naturally, Deforestation also contributes to global warming. Trees use carbon dioxide and give off oxygen in its place, which helps to create the optimal balance of gases in the atmosphere & Population growth is another factor in global warming, because as more people use fossil fuels for heat.
Climate Change can affect our daily lives! but how?
Food prices are rising as climate change makes it trickier to maintain the specific conditions crops need to thrive. As the climate warms, the air holds more moisture and rainstorms become more intense, damaging crops.
Fresh water is becoming scarcer in some regions. Many mountainous states rely on snowmelt to replenish their water sources, and snowpack is declining as well as melting earlier in the season. Severe droughts, increased evaporation and changes in precipitation patterns are impacting water levels in streams, rivers and lakes. Through the climate change, More wildfires are breaking out as droughts become increasingly common. Fires that go through drought-stricken land spread more quickly and burn longer, destroying forests and homes, public recreation spaces and grasslands.
