The rise in the average temperature of Earth’s atmosphere and oceans is what we called “global warming”. Since the time immemorial, Global Warming has always been a great issue of which one of the major cause that is continually to be blame is us, humans. For centuries, this environmental Issue continue to exist and worsen. Alarming as It Is as the earth Is now gradually deteriorating as shown In the unusual climate patterns, news all over the places and some documentations presented by the concern citizens.
Global warming is changing our economy, health and communities in diverse ways. When It comes to connecting the dots between climate change, extreme weather and health, the lines are clear. The earth Is saying something with record heat, drought, storms and fire. Scientists are telling us this Is what climate change looks like. Scientists project global warming to continue at a rate that is unprecedented in hundreds of thousands or even millions of years of Earth’s history.
They predict considerably more warming In the 21 SST century, depending on the level of future greenhouse gas emissions. For a scenario (possible situation) assuming higher emissions-?Len which emissions continue to Increase significantly during the century -?scientists project further warming of 2. 4 to 6. 4 Celsius degrees (4. 3 to 1 1. 5 Fahrenheit degrees) by the year 2100. For a scenario assuming lower emissions-?in which emissions grow slowly, peak around the year 2050, and then fall-?scientists project further warming of 1. To 2. 9 Celsius degrees (1. 9 to 5. 2 Fahrenheit degrees) by the year 2100. Melting polar Ice and glaciers, as well as warming of the oceans, expands ocean volume and raises sea level, which will eventually flood some coastal egging and even entire islands. Patterns of rainfall are expected to change, with higher latitudes (closer to the poles) projected to receive more rainfall, and subtropical areas (such as the Mediterranean and southern Africa) projected to receive considerably less.
Changes in temperature and precipitation patterns may damage food crops, disrupting food production in some parts of the world. Plant and animal species will shift their ranges toward the poles or to higher elevations seeking cooler temperatures and species that cannot do so may become extinct, Increasing bevels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere also leads to increased ocean acidity, damaging ocean ecosystems. Also, global warming is one of the most serious public health threats facing the nation, but few people are aware of how it can affect them.
Children, the elderly, and warming with a huge population at risk. The potential consequences are so great that many of the world’s leading scientists-?and increasingly, politicians, business leaders, and other citizens-?are calling for international cooperation and immediate action to counteract the problem. It is not new to us to encounter this environmental dilemma. In fact, we already had it in the past and still to face it in the present time.
However, it is very irritating to see how people continue doing activities that is hazardous to mother earth To wit, large mining scales, using of products with aerosols, kayaking, using of plastic bags and bottles without proper disposal, and many others. It is very demented and frivolous sentiment to hear that they can’t do anything for it is where they depend for living. But, should we only end up like this and continue to do such? Can’t we find our humanity and be concerned to the upcoming generations? Should we settle for this? There’s still time to change.
Wake up and be concerned enough. God created us to be the protector of this wonderful creation He has made and not as the demolisher. Although there are some theories of some scientist and physicists about the changes of this global phenomenon, that is accordingly, due to the changes of the physical world and heavenly bodies, still, it is us who can do better things to keep what we have. Even a little 0. 2%-0. 3% contribution to the predicament can help in saving the earth from total destruction. Let us all wake up and work together in preserving the earth and save our deteriorating home.
