Introduction

From the beginning of time, a mother’s instinct is to protect and raise their her child to live life to its fullest. Mother Earth has granted herself as a vessel for us to grow and prosper.

Greenhouse gases are the tiny amounts of gases in the Earth’s atmosphere that let the rays of the sun pass through the planet. However, they also hold in the heat that comes from the Earth itself. The greenhouse effect is the increasing thickness of greenhouse gas, and in doing so, causing more heat to be trapped on our planet. By having so much heat trapped, many animals will begin to migrate or even become extinct to unbearable weather conditions. Trees and other plants are being cut down, thus corrupting the balance of terrestrial plants converting carbon dioxide and oxygen and vice versa on the Earth. The temperature has changed drastically these past years. For the last century, the temperature has increased about one degree Fahrenheit. The effect

Conclusion

our future generations cannot enjoy it as well. Though our country is in a depression, something still should be committed to help save this planet.  

An intelligent person will think of the present, of what they can accomplish now. But a wise person will not only look at the present, but into the past and the future. So let us all be wise. Global warming is not a problem that will just disappear. Action needs to be made, action that needs to be started now. There is never a gain without a loss, nor is there ever a loss without a gain. Let us sacrifice some of our economy, to bring back the renaissance of new life for our children, our hope, our future.

    The global average temperature would drop precipitously 33 degrees from its current 15� to -18�C. The Earth would become an ice planet. However, too many greenhouse gases in Earth's atmosphere could increase the greenhouse effect. This could result in an increase in mean global temperatures as well as changes in precipitation patterns.
