Global warming is an increase in the average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and its oceans that is believed to be permanently changing the Earth’s climate. The increased volumes of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases such as methane, nitrogen oxide, chlorofluorocarbons and so on are released by the burning of fossil fuels, land clearing, agriculture, and other human activities, are believed to be the major sources of the global warming that has occurred. These activities emit more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere which increases global warmth of Earth. Greenhouse gases tends to trap heat from many sources like sun, burning coal, burning fuels and avoid them to escape back to the atmosphere. Global warming may cause rising sea levels due to the melting of the polar ice caps, health disorders and invites so many natural disasters such as occurrence of storms. Global warming is a process which ignores national boundaries so it is difficult to determine who is responsible for this rise in temperatures. We should presume that global warming is produced by the release of greenhouse gases, then everyone is responsible, in some way, for this build up of it in the atmosphere. Therefore, we all have the responsibility for cutting down the amounts of toxic gases that we produce as a nation. But therefore,…show more content…
But, again, how much does industry has to pay, should there be an international standard? Imposing the amount of gases emitted by the companies would be tough so it would be effortless for there to be a standard rate paid by the companies but then some are paying more than others. All these financial arguments about who is going to take financial responsibility for global warming is slowing down the process to preventing it and taken defences against rising sea levels and increased risk of
