Introduction

Global warming By Liew Chin Yee Joan Tan Daughter: Mummy, do you realize that the weather nowadays is getting warmer and warmer. Mummy: Yes. What is happening to our weather? I remember few years back, it is not this warm. Daughter: Mummy, it is due to global warming. This article below will help you to understand more about global warming. G lobal warming is the gradual increase in the temperature of the earth's atmosphere. The increase of temperature is due to the greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, water vapor, nitrous oxide and methane which trap heat and light from the sun in the earth's atmosphere. When living organisms fail to adapt to the current temperature, they faces disposal. ...read more.

One of the contributors of global warming is burning of fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are produced from the decomposition of dead organism for many years. Examples of fossil fuels are coal, petroleum and natural gas. When these fossil fuels are being burn, carbon dioxide will be release. Other than that, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) gas that releases from the refrigerators and air-conditioners have contributed to the depletion3 of the ozone layer. The depletion of ozone layer will cause incentives sunlight to enter and cause a rapid rise of temperature on the earth. The effect of it could be seen by the example of the arctic ozone hole. As the temperature of the earth increases, the ice in the North Pole and South Pole melts. ...read more.

Conclusion

Let us imagine if the number of carbon dioxide has taken over the amount of oxygen, all living organisms will be affected. All living organisms need oxygen to survive. Oxygen is important because it not only helps us to carry out respiration but also helps us to keep our body healthy. On the contrary, carbon dioxide brings negative effects to us such as asthma and breathing difficulties. Therefore, we must try to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. In conclusion, if you are a loving person think for your young generation. We should provide them everything which is the best, this include a clean air and environment. We should work together to save our "Mother Earth" from today. 1 Cutting down and clear away the trees 2 Extraordinary 3 The act of decreasing something markedly ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.

    Methane is a stronger greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, but it is fairly rapidly oxidised in the atmosphere and removed. Deforestation may also have a duel effect, in that vegetated areas remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by photosynthesis, however, if the deforestation opens up the land for chemical weathering, then further carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere.
