What is the meaning of global warming?

Global warming is the long-term increase in the overall temperature of the planet’s atmosphere. It is usually due to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, CFCs, fossil fuels, and other pollutants.

Global warming has been taking place for a long but its pace has increased in the last fifty years due to the burning of fossil fuels.

With the increase in population, the volume of burning fossil fuels has also gone drastically up. Fossil fuels include natural gas, oil, and coal, and burning them causes the “greenhouse effect” in the atmosphere.

The use of fossil fuels plays a significant role in global warming. Mining, drilling, and the use of explosives, all are involved in the process of extracting these fuels. All these activities lead to air pollution, degeneration of land, and acidification of oceans.

Burning fossil fuels, refining, transporting, farming livestock, and cutting down forests are some reasons that are responsible for influencing the earth’s temperature. Such activities emit a huge amount of carbon, a greenhouse gas into the atmosphere that is largely responsible for increasing the greenhouse effect and global warming.

Famous Climate Change Quotes

Climate change is another issue that comes from global warming. In general climate change refers to long-term changes in temperatures and weather patterns.

These changes are natural due to the slow shifts in the Earth’s orbit. But since the last few decades, human activities have been the main reason for climate change. The use of fossil fuels to power machines and generate electricity affects the climate in a very significant way.

From rising sea levels caused due to warmer seas and melting glaciers to irregular seasons, all are shreds of evidence of climate change.

Climate change is a result of global warming which is a serious threat to life on earth in form of droughts, flooding, catastrophic storms, and extreme weather.
