Other gases like nitrogen oxide and chlorofluorocarbons; man made gases, get caught in the atmosphere as well, also the decay of animals and respiration are two main natural sources of carbon dioxide. In my opinion, the people of the world should try to slow down the emission of man maid greenhouse gases and find ways to restore the natural balance so the climate does not change in an unnatural way. If we fail to do this, we will be forced to adapt to a new and uncertain climate. If we had an international cooperation to put a damper on the production of chlorofluorocarbons and slowed down the use of fossil fuels it would dramatically slow done the process of global warming. ...read more.

each decade. Scientist predict that if we continue putting the same amount of green house gases into the atmosphere, that by the year 2030 the temperature will be rising as much as 0.5 degrees C (0.9 degrees Fahrenheit) or more per decade. Overall, the global temperature could rise anywhere from 5 to 9 degrees over the next fifty years. If the temperatures do rise, as predicted, several things could happen. The increase of temperature could alter the growth of crops in areas near the equator due to insufficient rain and heat. The loss of the ability to grow crops would inflict serious economic damages to unindustrialized, third world countries that rely on agriculture as a major source income. With the high temperatures polar ice caps would melt and cause the sea level rise 1 to 3 feet. This would destroy small islands, coastal cities and some shallow rivers. The Florida Everglades, and costal cities, such as New York City and Miami would be destroyed. ...read more.
