Global warming is a major event that is occurring now in these days. Scientists are very concern about global warming. Which is causing the melting of the polar ice caps in the poles of the planet Earth to the weather and the threat to the ecosystem. The National Geographic, the NRDC, EPA, Panda Org. agrees and reports that global warming can be a big topic for the world. Their focuses on global warming are on the weather, energy, waste, and the effects on humanity and nature. Global warming has been an issue for the last decade it has affected the environment, people, and the world and if not ended now the results could be catastrophic. The weather change has impacted the whole world from droughts to floods and natural disasters. Especially the climate in the Artic, Alaska, Western Canada and Eastern Russia the temperature has risen about twice as global averages. At this rate the wild life would decrease dramatically at these places. In fact “Arctic ice is rapidly disappearing, and the region may have its first completely ice-free summer by 2040 or earlier. Polar bears and indigenous cultures are already suffering from the sea-ice loss”. If humanity doesn’t try to start fixing and using less fossil fuel to make the world better place the results could be disastrous, sea level will be rising and it is equal to less land. Fossil fuels are known as coal, petroleum and natural gas, also this type of energy source was created underneath the Earth. Coal is the worst energy source because it releases more carbon dioxide (Co2) in the atmosphere than any fossil fuel in actual fact “Making matters worse, coal mining produces methane, a greenhouse gas with a global warming potential 25 times greater than that of CO2 on a 100-year timeline.”(CITE HERE with frog) This type power source should be used less. Petroleum the transportation tragedy it emits about three-fourths as much Co2 rather than burning coal. Natural gas is not clean like...
