One of the biggest problems facing the world
today is global warming. Many scientists believe
that our production of carbon dioxide and other
greenhouse gases is having a heating effect on
the atmosphere, and this could be very dangerous
for human life. Together with 1991, the years of
1983, 1987, 1988 and 1989 have been measured
to be the warmest six years in the last hundred years.
The year 1991 was the second warmest year of the
past century. The consequences of the rise in
temperature is being felt all over the globe the
findings of scientific research done in this field
reveal that the temperature of the earth is likely
to rise from 1.4°C to 5.8°C within a period of 100 years. This essay will examine the problem of globa
l warming and suggest some ways of solving the
problem.

Many problems could result from global warming.
One of the biggest problems is rising sea level.
This could result in the flooding of low lying
coastal areas and cities, such as Egypt, the
Netherlands, and Bangladesh. Some countries
might even disappear completely! Another
problem caused by global warming is changes
in weather patterns. Many areas of the world
are experiencing increased hurricanes, floods,
and other unusual weather. A third problem
associated with global warming is the effect on
animals. Fish populations could be affected,
while some insects which spread disease might
become more common. There are several
things we can do to solve the problem of
global warming. One solution is to stop producing
C02. We can do this by switching from oil, coal
and gas to renewable energy. Thirdly, the use o
f fuel-efficient vehicles should be promoted as
these vehicles have lower emissions of harmful
gases. We can use Trains or Bikes to go to our work.
Another solution is to plant more trees. Trees play a
significant role in the global carbon cycle. They are
the largest land-based mechanism for removing...
