Carbon Dioxide Greenhouse Gases
827 wordsCarbon dioxide is a gas comprising less than 0. 04 % of the atmosphere. It is used by plants to make, directly or indirectly, all of the food that we eat. Increases in the concentration of carbon dioxide generally increase the growth rate of plants and decrease their water use. The concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is increasing, mostly as a result of burning of coal, oil, gas and forests. Its concentration may double by the end of the next century. Carbon dioxide also significan...

This is because ecological imbalances were as a result of the Industrial revolution, which could be said to be the beginning of the non-ending technological advancement cycle. During Industrial revolution, we began altering or climate and environment through changing agricultural and industrial practices. Before the industrial revolution, human activity released very few gases into the atmosphere, but now through population growth fo...

985 wordsGlobal warming is a steady increase in earths average temperature which appears to be acknowledged by many scientists and people at the present as reality. Increasing human activities are changing the Earth's temperature which includes natural influences that have been there over the past. By and large, this warming takes place due to the use of green-house gases emitted in the Earth's upper atmosphere. Some skeptics believe and some studies seem to point out that human production of greenhouse ...

In the last few decades the worlds sea levels have risen, the weather has become more unpredictable and countries are now facing hotter summers with colder winters. This is due to global warming, which is becoming an increasingly real problem. But why is global warming a problem? If scientists theories are correct, then the results world over would be catastrophic. Global warming is the build up of greenhouse gases in the atmo...

2,020 wordsIn my seminar work I will try to explain you what is happening to global climate, which are the consequences and what can we do to stop changing our climate. Humans are heating the planet. Official confirmation for that came in 1995, when the Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) the official scientific body established in 1988 by the UN to investigate climate change - published its Second Assessment Report, written and reviewed by some 2 000 scientists. A consensus now undeniably ex...

832 wordsWhen a person starts their car or does a very small and simple thing the last thing that they are thinking of are the consequences it has to the atmosphere. Because of the continuous changing of the society, the earth has to get used to several different problems. Even though the atmosphere is known to be good because it protects us from the deadly radiation from the sun, it also takes that same heat and engulfs the earth in it. The greenhouse effect refers to the light energy that is trapped by...

If we stay at the rate we our now (fossil fuel consumption / growth in population) then within the next two century the Earth's air might not be fit to breath. Many people in the world do not think that this is a major concern and that it is normal for the Earth's temperature to incr...

In terms of the trades of pollution permits, the level of pollution remains the same as when it is regulated by law; but the amount spent on pollution control is lower. Thus, we say that the practice of tradable pollution permits increases efficiency. With the aim to protect the global commons of the earths atmosphere, the obligations ...

705 wordsThe earth s climate is predicted to change because human activities are altering the chemical composition of the atmosphere through the buildup of greenhouse gases primarily carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide. The heat-trapping property of these gases is undisputed. Although uncertainty exists about exactly how earth s climate responds to these gases, global temperatures are rising. Energy from the sun drives the earth s weather and climate, and heats the earth s surface; in turn, the ea...

Most of us have seen fires in natural vegetation, or their effects; stark, blackened vegetation or a smoke pall. Because fires such as these can have damaging economic and social effects, can spoil forestry timber, can burn down houses and farms, and can kill people and animals, there has been a lot written about wildfires. Added to this wide perception of the damage that can be caused ...

There are 4 steps in the Greenhouse effect. 1 -Sunlight radiates from the sun, through space, to earth? s atmosphere. 2 - the sunlight enters the atmosphere and hits Earth. Some of it turns into heat energy in the form of infrared light. The heat gets absorbed by surrounding air and land, which in turn makes it warm. 3 - Infrared rays, which are remitted i...

3,312 wordsThe Greenhouse Effect The greenhouse effect, as defined in the dictionary, is the effect produced as greenhouse gases allow incoming solar radiation to pass through the Earths atmosphere, but prevent most of the outgoing infrared radiation from the surface and lower atmosphere from escaping into outer space. Even though this process occurs naturally and has kept the Earths temperature about 60 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than it would otherwise be, current life on Earth could not be sustained with...

1,498 wordsGreenhouse Effect The greenhouse effect is a natural phenomenon that warms the earth and enables it to support life. Without it, the average temperature on earth would be around - 18 degrees C, instead of the current + 15 degrees C a frozen wilderness. It works on the same principles as the ordinary glass garden greenhouse, where glass allows light to get in, but does not allow for the heat to get out. This makes for a much higher temperature inside the greenhouse. On a planetary scale, similar ...
