Green house gases are the direct source of the problem identified as Global Warming. Carbon Dioxide and Methane form a larger part of these greenhouse gases. These greenhouse gases further lead to an effect known as the greenhouse effect which causes the whole atmosphere in this world to lower down (Global Warming in 21st Century Causes Effects & Future, 2008). Greenhouse effect has an impact on the whole system of Global Warming and is considered as an important ingredient which works towards this problem. This essay would further describe the causes and effects of Global Warming in detail.
Global Warming is usually denoted to be the cause of the actions committed by the human beings themselves. However there are opposing viewpoints on this notion as according to the critics, nature also plays a role towards the problem of global warming (Abrahamson, 1989). Carbon emissions can be specified as the major cause of the problem of Global Warming. The factories which are using the fossil fuels during their manufacturing process are giving out a great amount of carbon and this leads to a great change in the temperature of this world (CBO, 1990).
The trees planted in the world are considered to be of immense importance in stopping the problem of global warming to expand. A tree’s intake during its growing process is carbon dioxide and this helps it to reduce carbon dioxide from the environment. However after a tree dies or the wood in it decomposes, carbon dioxide is given off in the environment. This has been seen as a major cause of the alarming high rates of carbon dioxide in the air these days. In the present years many forests have been burnt by the people or have been burnt naturally due to some accident. These factors have caused the trees to die and release carbon dioxide in the air. In the recent years fires have erupted in the major forests
