Have you ever wondered why there have been warmer winters, longer falls, or shorter springs in recent years? Well have you ever thought about what the reason behind this could be? “Global warming”, yes its global warming that’s started to take over our seasons and if society doesn’t put a stop to it who knows what the world to look like in another decade or so. There are many other issues that are caused by global warming but they are also easily preventable, people just have to try. Global warming is not a problem that society should look over and ignore; it’s an issue that requires immediate attention. Global warming isn’t starting by itself, its what we as humans do that’s causing it to occur.
Firstly, there are many causes to global warming and they are split up into two kinds, man-made causes and natural causes. Natural causes are created naturally by nature. One natural cause is the release of methane gas from the Arctic and wetlands. Methane gas is a type of greenhouse gas that traps heat inside the atmosphere. Man- made causes do the most damage to earth. One of the common man made causes is pollution. One of the ways humans cause pollution is through the burning of fossil fuels, including the burning of coal and oil. The burning of fossil fuels gives off CO2 gas. CO2 gas is one of the reasons why there has been an increase in global temperatures. The amount of CO2 today is the highest it has ever been in the past 1000 years. In autumn the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere rise and in the spring the levels fall, causing temperatures to alternate. There is a direct relationship between the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere and global temperatures: when the level of CO2 is high the temperatures rise. Another cause of global warming is the increase in population. Right now the world population has reached 7 billion people. The more people living on earth means more production of food and more methods of transportation. People nowadays...
