Raising Consciousness on Global Warming

28, June 2015 | Author: | Posted in Environmental, Reference & Education

The changes on the lifestyle of the people brought negative effects to the earth. For the past years, scientists have been studying the effect of industrialism on earth. They have found out that the earth’s surface temperature has grown warmer. Global warming is a global problem that needs global action. If we don’t start taking part in finding a solution to this problem, the environmental changes and problems we’ve been experiencing would continue to get worse.

 

Global warming is the continuous increase in earth’s surface temperature. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the temperature increased from the middle part of the 20th century until today is due to the increased in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Human activities such as deforestation and burning of fossil fuels are some of the reasons for the increased concentration of these gases. Examples of greenhouse gases that are affecting the earth’s temperature are carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide and methane.

 

The earth goes through a cycle and global warming is a part of it. What makes global warming an issue among environmentalists and scientists are the rapid increase in temperature and concentration of greenhouse gases. These changes would lead to a rapid change in climate patterns that may be destructive to us.

 

Causes of Global Warming
Man’s lifestyle changes and behavior took a toll on the earth. Early on, farming and cutting down of trees have placed an effect on earth. As man’s life progressed, the harm we do to the earth also became more destructive.

 

The introduction of coal and petroleum to run machines, build and manage cities further increased the amount of harmful gases on the earth’s atmosphere. The presence of too much carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide and methane eventually lead to a condition we all know as the Greenhouse Effect.

 

Today, urbanization and all kinds of pollution placed a greater strain to the already damaged earth’s atmosphere and environment. You only need to look around you to see the effects of progress and industrialization to the earth.

 

Taking Action
The first step towards caring for the environment is the awareness of these problems. To be conscious of the earth’s situation is to be aware of our actions. It is only through awareness that we will be able to act properly towards earth’s rehabilitation.

 

Men are innately intelligent and creative. If we were able to improve our way of living through various inventions, we will also be able to find a solution to the pressing problem of global warming. It only takes a conscious effort to care for the environment. If we are aware of how the earth is affected by our actions, we will be able to change these actions and repair the damages we’ve inflicted to our earth. It’s never too late to start caring for our environment. Today is the time to stop acting for ourselves and start acting for our environment. We only have one earth and like what they say, we are the stewards of the earth. Let’s start acting together now.
