Global warming is the most concerning problem of our time. Global warming is the process in which the Earth’s temperature starts increasing; it is caused mostly by human activities, especially industrialization, and pollution that are killing the Earth by emitting greenhouse gas to the atmosphere. But this reason is not the only reason why we have to stop global warming. Firstly, IPCC projects that the world’s temperatures will rise 1.8-6 degrees Celsius by the century’s end – enough to melt the polar caps. When the ice caps melt, a vast majority of our countries borders will be under water. And if we live under the sea’s level, there would be massive crops failures, water shortages and floods. Secondly, Global warming causes climate change and According to UNEP, the great increase in numbers of extreme weather events in this decade is a direct result of climate change. Moreover, many scientists around the world believed that the 2004 Thailand’s tsunami is the most devastating tsunami ever occurred.
Thirdly, more than a million species are face extinction from changing climate, disappearing habitat, and acidifying oceans. For example, polar bears are suffering from the sea-ice loss. So now we know why we have to stop global warming, how can we stop it? The answer is much simpler than you think, you don’t need to pay carbon tax or be a green activist and go miles from home to protest. If you follow the few simple rules that I now give you, you will have started to help us all. All you need to do are try to use public transports as much as possible, save as much energy as you can and don’t buy things than you don’t really need. If everybody stuck to these rules, we would be doing a great thing by protecting the earth. So please consider what I have said, and try to do your part. After all, it will be our next generation that will feel the effects. These greenhouse gases persist in the atmosphere for ages, meaning that even if such emissions...
