Introduction of climate change

Climate Change:

       Climate change refers to long term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns. these shifts may be natural, such as through variation in the solar cycle. But since the 1800 s' human activities have been the main driver of climate change, primarily due to burning fossil fuels like coal,oil and gas.

What is the reason for Climate Change?

           Causes of  climate change generating electricity and heat by burning fossil fuels causes a large chunk of global emissions. Most electricity is still generated by burning coal ,oil or gas which produces carbon di oxide and nitrons oxide. powerful green house gases that blanket the Earth and trap the sun's heat.

Causes and effect of Climate Change:

    Fossil fuels, coal, oil and gas are by far the largest contribututor to global climate change, accounting for over 75% of Global green house gas emissions and nearly 90% of all carbon di oxide emissions .

    As Green house gas emission blanket the earth , they trap the sun's heat. This leads to global warming faster than at any point in recorded history. Warmer temperatures over time are changing weather patterns and disrupting the usual balance of nature.This poses many risks to human beings and all other forms of life on Earth.

Definition of Climte Change:

    Climte change refers to the change in the environmental conditions of the earth. This happens due to many internal and external factors. The climatic change has become a global concern over the last few decade. Besides ,these climatic changes affect life on the Earth in various ways.

Cases of Climate Change in locally:

         Carbon di oxide is the main cause of human induced climate change. It has been emitted in vast quantities from the burning of fossil fuels and it continuous to affect the climate system during it's long residence time in the atmosphere .

The biggest contributed to climate change:

         The main cause of climate change is burning fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal . When burnt fossil fuels release carbon di oxide into the air, causing the planet to heat up.

Effects of Climate Change

The effects of Climate change:

      The consequences of Climate change now include, among others, intence droughts,  water scarcity, severe fires, rising sea levels , flooding, melting polar ice ,catastrophic storms and declining bio diversity. 

The cause effect of Climate change:

       Human activities, such as burning fossil fuels and destroying rain forests have an increasing influence on the climate and the Earth's temperature. The adds huge quantities of green house gases to those naturally present in the atmosphere , incresing the green house effect and global warming.

Droughts in many region:

        The frequency and extent of the devastation and distruction caused by the weather is getting stronger and more frequent. According to a report by the inter governmental pannel on climate change (IPCC, 2021), Climate change is intensifying the water cycle , leading to intensifying drought in many regions.

The three main effects of climate change:

          Earth well continur to warm and the effects will be pro found. 

          The potencial future effects of global climate change include more frequent wild fires, longer periods of drought in some regions, and an increse in the duration and intensity of tropical stroms.

The main threats of climate change:

           The main threats of climate change , stemming from the rising temperature of earth atmosphere include rising sea levels, eco system collapes and more frequent and severe weather. rising temperatures from human caused green house gas emissions affects planet - wide systems in various ways.

Global tree planting:

            The nature conservances plant a billion trees combined is major forest restoration program. Our goal is to plant a billion trees across the planet to slow the connected crises of climate change and bio diversity loss. A lot can change in a life time including the palnet we live on.

Planting trees helps to avoid global warming:

             To plant a tree the right way you will want to dig a big enough hole to plant it in. Measure the length of the roots and make the hole at least that deep. Make the hole 2 - 3 times as wide as the roots on the tree. Put the tree in the hole and use a level to make sure its straight.

 

 

Causes of effects globally

Causes of effects and globally:

          The burning of fossil fuels, cutting down of trees etc., causes the temperature of the earth to increase . High temperature changes the weather patterns, causing the dry areas to get drier and wet areas to get wetter. Thus increasing the frequency of disasters like floods, droughts ect., 

           Causes and effects of global warming essay:

         The emmissions of green house gases have caused global warming. One of the many effects of global warming is that it has led to an increase in the planet's temperatures. The leading cause of global warming is the release of harmful and toxic gases into the atmosphere. 

    What causes global warming:

            Global warming occurs when corbon di oxide (CO2) and other air pollutants collect in the atmosphere and absorb sun light and solar radiation that have bounced off the earth's surface.

             Global warming is the current rise in temperature of the air and oceans. It is happening mainly because humans burn coal, oil, and Natural gas; and cut down forests. Average temperatures today are about 1 degree C. Higher than before people started burning a lot of coal around 1750. Global warming is an aspect of climate change , refering to the long term rise of the planet's temperatures. It is caused by increased concentrations of green house gases in the atmosphere , mainly from human activities such as burning fossil fuels and farming.

What are the eleven effects of global farming:

          Global warming stresses eco systems through temperature rices, water shortages , increased fire threats , drought, weed , and pest invations , intense storm damage and saly invasions.

Potential solution for Climate Change

     Changing our main energy sources to clean and renewable energy is the best way to stop using fossil fuels. These include techonologies like solar , wind, wave, title and geo thermal power . Switch to sustainable transport. petrol and diesel vehicles , plains and ships use fossil fuels.

Keep fossil fuels in the ground:

    Fosil fuels include coal, oil and Gas- and the more that are extracted and burned , the worse climate change will get. All countries need to move their economies away from fossil fuels as soon as possible.

Invest in renewable energy:

     Changing our main energy sources to clean and renewable energy is the best way to stop using fossil fuels. These include techonologies like solar ,wind , wave, tidel and geo thermal power. 

Switch to sustainable transport:

      Petrol and diesal vehicles , plains and ships use fossil fuels. Reducing car use switching to electric vehicles and minimising playing travel will not only help stop climate change, it will reduce air pollution too.

Help us keep our home 's cosy:

   Home;s should not be draughty and cold - it's a waste of money and measerable in the winter . The government can help house holds heat our homes in a green way - such as by insulating walls and roofs and switching away from oil or gas boilers to heat pumps.

Improve farming and encourages vegan diets:

    One of the best ways for individuals to help stop climate change is by reducing their meat and diary consumption ,or by going fully vegan .Buisnesses and food retailers can improve farming practices and provide more plant-based products to help people make the shift.

  Restore nature to absorb more carbon:

    The natural world is very good at cleaning up our emissions ,but we need to look after it. Planting trees in the right places or giving land back to nature through 'rewilding ' schemes is a good place to start. This is because photosynthesising plants draw down carbon dioxide as they grow,locking it away in soils.    

Protect forest like the amazon:

   Forests are crucial in the fight against climate change, and protecting them is an important climate solution . Cutting down forest on an industrial scale destroys giant trees which could be sucking up huge amounts of carbon.Yet companies destroy forest to make way for animal farming, soya are palm oil plantations . Government can stop them by making better loss.

Protect the oceans :

       Oceans also obsorb large amounts of  corbon di oxide from the atmosphere, which helps to keep our climate stable. But many are overfished , used for oil and gas drilling or threatened by deep sea mining . Protecting oceans and the life in them is ultimately a way to protect ourselves from climate change. 

Reduce how much people consume :

           Our transport , fashion , food and other life style choices all have different impacts on the climate. This is often by design - fashion and technology companies , for example , will release far more products might be hard, it's most certainly worth it. Reducing over all consumption in more wealthy countries can help put less strain on planet
