Earth is the only planet we can live in and it’s the only planet we have so we have to take care of it. Knowing this we are still hurting it, whether it is through degrading the soil or through CFC's. Global Warming is real and its hurting our environment and it's entirely our fault. It's true that Global Warming happens naturally however because of the human race we have increased how fast it’s happening. There have been many meetings with other nations to control the amount of carbon-dioxide released. Along with the release of CFC’s that hurt our ozone. The Ozone deflects 99% of the UV rays which cause a variety of disease. We all know that it is bad but because most people don’t know what to do to help their environment. Well it’s the simple things like recycling and reducing your carbon-foot print. All these things if each person contributes we can make a better world not just for us but for our children and our grandchildren.

Cause and Effects of Global Warming
Global warming it’s the increase in the average temperature on Earth. Temperature on earth is controlled by the oceans, the average temperature is fifty-five degrees and if it were to increase or decrease in either direction than it would be the point of no return. The increase of temperature is caused by the release of CO2 (carbon-dioxide), the methane which both act as greenhouse gases, and the melting of the glaciers are a result. The reason for all this is human interference and disregard for Mother Nature and her limits.

Cause 1
Carbon-dioxide is a gas that is released from burning fossil fuels for us most commonly known as oil. When it is burned in the engine of cars a process called combustion which has a byproduct of CO2 ("Burning up in combustion"). CO2 is also released from industries, though they filter what they release it is still harmful to the environment. Carbon-dioxide is still a greenhouse gas ("What is carbon,") and what it does to the environment is real even...
