5. Greenhouse gas emissions:
Issue- A greenhouse gas (sometimes abbreviated GHG) is a gas in an atmosphere that absorbs and emits radiation within the thermal infrared range. This process is the fundamental cause of the greenhouse effect.
Reasons- Electricity production, industries, transportation, agriculture, commercial and residential waste.
Remedies- Energy conservation, using alternatives, optimum utilization of resources, reduction on the dependency on machines that emit these harmful gases.
Opinion- If this issue is not brought under control it would lead to the destruction of the planet very soon. Thus every Government must take sufficient measures in order to control the release of such gases into the environment.
