Global Warming- Universal Issue
Recently everyone is been talking about global warming. Infact after recession which has affected everyone globally its time for Global warming to take over. Various prominent bodies have commented on global warming, most notably the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). As per the agency the increasing body of observations and the reports submitted by them gives a collective picture of a warming world and other changes in the climate system. IPCC is the only agency which has detailed investigation about the Global Warming and the only agency which is in continuation which the investigation since centuries.
Global Warming is mainly caused due to emissions of greenhouse gases (Carbon Dioxide, Methane, Nitrous Oxide etc) and aerosols due to human activities continue to alter the atmosphere in ways that are expected to affect the climate. In today's world there are many industry setups in the world which are causing harm to the nature and their lack of confidence in the ability of models to project future climate has increased; and there is new and stronger evidence that most of the warming observed over the last 50 years is attributable to human activities.
Global Warming is the increase in the average Temperature of the Earth, Air and the Oceans. It was discovered in the Mid-twentieth century. The warming is still in continuation. Early it was never much noticed but as there are climatically changes and problem the scientist from various nations have warned about the effects these changes can cause. Global surface temperature increased 0.74 ± 0.18 °C (1.33 ± 0.32 °F) during the last century. It is confirmed by agencies that the pollutes gases from industries are majority responsible for the temperature increase in the climate and also affecting the natural Phenomena such as solar variation and Volcanoes which had a small warming effect in the Mid century. Nearly 40 scientific societies are involved in bringing one common report to the people describing about Global Warming.
It was already declared and announced by IPCC through their report that the global surface temperature can rise further up to 1.1 to 6.4 °C (2.0 to 11.5 °F) during the twenty-first century. Which was proved to be false due to the use of different models used to check the temperature status. They used a different models for checking climate sensitivity and different to check greenhouse gas emissions. This resulted in a false report. Earlier as no one know what exactly Global warming was the scientists were trying their best to summarize a report through various equipments which could brief them about Global Warming. Everyone was trying their best forming groups. Most studies focus on the period up to 2100. However, warming is expected to continue beyond 2100 even if emissions stop, because of the large heat capacity of the oceans and the long lifetime of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
The perfect way to describe global Warming is simple words is when the increasing temperature will cause sea levels to rise and will change the amount and pattern of precipitation, probably including expansion of subtropical deserts. The continuing retreat of glaciers, permafrost and sea ice is expected, with the Arctic region being particularly affected. Other likely effects include shrinkage of the Amazon rainforest and Boreal forests, increases in the intensity of extreme weather events, species extinctions and changes in agricultural yields.
The scientists have divided the study in two part; Positive feedback from the nature and Negative feedback in reference to their solutions. When a warming trend results in effects that induce further warming, the process is referred to as a positive feedback; when the warming results in effects that reduces the original warming, the process is referred to as a negative feedback. The main positive feedback involves the tendency of warming to increase the amount of water vapor in the atmosphere. The main negative feedback is the effect of temperature on emission of infrared radiation: as the temperature of a body increases, the emitted radiation increases with the fourth power of its absolute temperature.
Many efforts are being made to fight this problem. Many nations have come forward lending helping hand to each other to solve this problem before its too late. They have been spreading awareness through various campaigns, communications, etc. The only way they know is to reduce the emission of the green gases which can only cut down the Global warming rate. AL Gore the first and the only person to raise an alarm about global warming made a documentary movie called “An Inconvenient Truth" and also wrote a book which said that Earth is moving towards and end which means that its going to me immensely warm in future.
Increased publicity of the scientific findings surrounding global warming has resulted in political and economic debate. Poor regions, particularly Africa, which is economically backward cannot afford the investigation or help the forming groups. United States is the only country which has all the powers and access to the required teams and financially very strong. Even the economically developing countries are exempted from this search.
There are many ill effects of Global Warming, but there are also ways we can help controlling or reducing this problem. You can help to reduce the demand for fossil fuels, which in turn reduces global warming, by using energy more wisely. Burning fossil fuels such as natural gas, coal, oil and gasoline raises the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and carbon dioxide is a major contributor to the green house effect and global warming. Below are the ways you can help controlling Global warming:
1) Change a Light Bulb: Wherever possible do replace regular and low intensity bulbs with a compact florescent lights bulb. Use less watt bulbs in the places where you do not require more of light. Switch off lights before leaving the room.
Do you know if we use a Compact florescent light bulb you will eliminate 90 billion pounds of green house gases.
2) Only Energy-Efficient Products: Buy a car which gives you good gas mileage. Use products which are energy saving such as Mixer grinder, Tube lights, Fans, Televisions etc. Use as less as possible. Stop wastage of electricity. There are many products available in market which helps you save electricity and fuel in some cases. Water heater uses much of energy, so use it less or much of hot water. That change alone can save at least 500 pounds of carbon dioxide annually in most households. Use the energy-saving settings on your dishwasher and let the dishes air-dry.
3) Tree Plantation: Always make sure that you have enough tress surrounded your home. May be then it may be your garden or someone else’s. Trees are very necessary to control the problem. Plant as many as tress you want wherever possible. During photosynthesis, trees and other plants absorb carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. They are an integral part of the natural atmospheric exchange cycle here on Earth, but there are too few of them to fully counter the increases in carbon dioxide caused by automobile traffic, manufacturing and other human activities. A single tree will absorb approximately one ton of carbon dioxide during its lifetime.
4) Save Fuel: The only way to save fuel is to drive less. Fuel consumption is very necessary. Walk down short distances or use public buses. Every gallon of gas you save not only helps your budget; it also keeps 20 pounds of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.
5) Save water: Use less water and save water. Water is necessary to every living being. everyone knows that the amount of water is reducing day by day and hence everyone needs to save water in respect to control the global warming.
Even is every individual follow these 5 points in their daily life i am sure we can push this problem further and finally a day which come when it will be resolved. A new paperback edition of Earth Under Fire is now available in stores which can tell you all about How Global Warming is Changing the World is a comprehensive look at the world wide effects of climate change, its implications, and what action is being taken about it.
Share information about recycling and energy conservation with your friends, neighbors and co-workers, and take opportunities to encourage public officials to establish programs and policies that are good for the environment.
These 10 steps will take you a long way toward reducing your energy use and your monthly budget. And less energy use means less dependence on the fossil fuels that create greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming.
REMEMBER ONLY ONE WORD "SAVE", YOU NEED TO.
