. INTRODUCTION 1.1. What is the Greenhouse Effect? The Earth’s climate is determined by the receipt and distribution of the radiation received from the sun (Dunne, 2013). Light from the sun undertakes three corridors: 25% is absorbed by the atmosphere, 30% is reflected back into space and 45% is absorbed by the Earth’s surface (Dunne, 2013). The light absorbed by the Earth’s surface is converted into energy and used for the various biological processes. In the atmosphere, some gases have strong infrared
well as the atmosphere. Environmental experts have raised the alarm over the steady rise of earth’s temperature in the last 50 years. It is worth noting that global warming is attributed to the collection of not only Carbon dioxide but also other greenhouse gases and other environmental pollutants in the atmosphere that absorbs solar and sunlight radiation and bounces back to the surface of the earth instead of escaping into space. As a result, these pollutants trap the heat thus causing the earth
The Effect of Climate Change on the Golden Toad Introduction Throughout history the Earth’s climate continually cooled and warmed with weather regimes changing. This natural process is being enhanced through human activities that are increasing the warming of the atmosphere at a more rapid rate than previously seen. Among the many threats to biodiversity; the destruction of habitats, population growth, pollution, invasive species and overexploitation, climate change is having an adverse effect on
Introduction In this essay I will talk about the human population, the effects of it all over the world and what might happen in the future if it continues to grow at this rate. The human population is worth researching because it is good to have an idea of the problems of our human population and how this affects other people around the world. This is an important topic to talk about because it has an effect on everyone and is an issue that connects to the main reasons that our world is dying.
the fact that it helped humans to make great advances in technology, industry, argriculture,..However, this progress also produced the opposite effect to the environment: many rivers and oceans were polluted by chemicals and fertilizers from factories and farmland, the air was damaged by fumes,… This essay will raise important questions about the effects of environmental pollution on human life.
Task 1 Can polar bears and people coexist? Polar bears are the largest land predator on earth today. They live in the Arctic area, surrounded by the northern nations like Norway, Greenland and Canada. The effects of global warming have caused the temperatures to rise, which have led the Arctic ice to melt. Because the polar bears’ territory is shrinking, they are forced to hunt further inland. They usually hunt on the sea ice, but they cannot do that now. A polar bear can starve for months, but
the surface of our planet is the accumulation and fragmentation of plastics” (Hopewell, Dvorak, Kosior). Is recycling plastic, glass, paper and decreasing the amount of waste in general landfills an effective method to reducing waste? In this essay, the effects of plastic, glass and paper on our planet will be discussed as well as the positives and negatives of recycling. Recycling will be questioned, to see if it is the most effective method. Recycling is one of the three most effective ways to preserve
One of the biggest issues that humanity has to face is climate change. This essay will cover an issue which affects climate change and a solution for this problem. Climate change is the rate of weather in a country or region over the years. “Climate change refers to a broad range of global phenomena created predominantly by burning fossil fuels, which add heat-trapping gases to Earth’s atmosphere” (Nasa). Climate change has a lot of negative impacts on communities and ecosystems. Some examples
faced the increasing number of negative effects caused by climate change. Climate change refers to the secular change which affects earth’s weather, especially an increase in temperature. In other words, climate change is a major cause which leads to serious problems such as health problems and water scarcity. This essay discusses the causes of formation of bad influences and evaluates the efficiency of mitigation and adaptation strategies as well. The essay demonstrates that mitigation strategies
Introduction With the growing number of green charities and great effort on teaching people about the environmental conservation, we are now more familiar with this topic. Many scientists contribute the weird climate and frequent natural disasters to climate change or more precisely to global warming. To make improvement on this precarious situation, many nations have got meetings to discuss how to address this big problem and finally reach an agreement to cut down on the carbon dioxide emission
