Introduction

´╗┐Hassan Chamseddine Global Warming It?s becoming clear that most of the past century?s warming had been caused by humans, by releasing greenhouse gases during our modern lives. According to National Geographic, the amount of greenhouse gases released today is the biggest compared to the past 650,000 years. National Geographic studies have shown that ?as the Earth spins each day, the new heat swirls with it, picking up moisture over the oceans, rising here, settling there and changing the rhythms of climate that all living things have come to rely upon.? We call the result Global Warming. Global warming has causes, dangers and effects, yet it also has solutions! ...read more.

The effects of rising temperatures won’t wait till it happen in the future, but it’s happening right now. Signs are appearing all over, and some of them are surprising. Glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising, cloud forests are drying, and wildlife is scrambling to keep pace. According to researcher Bill Fraser, the number of Adélie penguins on Antarctica has fallen from 32,000 breeding pairs to 11,000 in 30 years because of Global Warming. National Geographic has stated that Global Warming is also causing faster rise in sea level, precipitation have increased across the globe, and Spruce Bark beetles have chewed up 4 million acres of spruce trees due to 20 years of extremely warm summers. ...read more.

Conclusion

Renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, geothermal and bioenergy are available around the world. Using Renewable energy helps in stopping Global Warming because it causes much less pollution. We conclude that Global Warming is a serious problem that can lead to climate change; however we can deal with it by the solutions discussed. I believe that we, humans, are responsible for this problem. Therefore, organizations must all start abiding by the solutions in order to stop Global Warming before the bad consequences happen!
