GLOBAL WARMING AND GREEN HOUSE EFFECT – HOW CAN WE STOP THEM ?

The greenhouse effect occurs when certain gases in the atmosphere trap infrared radiation whereas Global warming refers to an increase in the average temperature of the Earth as a result of the greenhouse effect. Burning fossil fuels raises the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and it is a major contributor to the greenhouse effect and global warming. We can help to reduce the demand for fossil fuels, which in turn reduces global warming, by using energy more wisely. The most important and useful way is Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. We should do our part to reduce waste by choosing reusable products instead of disposables. Buying products with minimum packaging will help to reduce waste. Planting more and more trees is another useful way by which we can control global warming and green house effect. Because carbon dioxide is the most important greenhouse gas, planting trees and other plants can slow the rate of global warming. Plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Another way is by reducing the use of fossil fuels.

To reduce the use of fossil fuels we should use less energy, or use alternative, nonpolluting energy sources like solar and wind power. We should Conserve water because it reduces the amount of energy used. One effective way is by Driving less and Driving Smart

Less driving means fewer emissions. Besides saving gasoline, walking is a great form of exercise. We can use carpool or the public transport rather travelling on our own vehicles. We should buy Energy Efficient Resources

Home appliances now come in a range of energy-efficient models, and compact florescent bulbs provide more natural-looking light while using far less energy than standard light bulbs. We should use the “off” switch.

We should Save electricity and reduce global warming by turning off lights and electronics whenever we are not using them And at the end I would like to say that
If each one of...
