The planet is almost in equilibrium so the amount of incoming energy is almost equal to the amount of outgoing energy. The energy that…
y balance between how much shortwave radiation emitted by the sun is absorbed by the earth and then how much long wave is reflected back in the space. During this whole process, some of it is absorbed by the earth heating the planet. This process is known as the green house effect it has been very important in maintaining the earth’s energy balance and its temperature making it livable for humans and animals.
The atmosphere of earth is made out of many gases including nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, argon, carbon dioxide water vapors and little amounts of other gases and dust particles. The energy that comes into the earth’s atmosphere in the form of radiations is also called solar energy which travels at the speed of light, and enters the earth’s atmosphere from travelling 93 million miles from space in 8 minutes. If this energy didn’t leave the earth’s atmosphere then the earth would either heat up or cool down without having any balance.
Only by existing humans have made great changes in the environment and negatively affected the world’s living ecosystem. Ecosystem is the environment in which animals, humans and plants interact with each other. There are many reasons to the current environmental problems that we have in the world the main reason is the over use of resources that cannot be renewed such as gas, oil, metal and coal. The over consumption of these elements has increased in the past 30-40 years. Following are one of the many environmental problems causing misbalance in the world’s ecosystem:
Deforestation is a process in which the tree cover is reduced all over the world. it is also defined as the drastic change in the climate. Cutting down the forests all around the world threatens to change the climate pattern of the world. For example in Brazil the patterns of rainfall and also disturbing the winter and summer seasons.
It is a process in which a piece of land that was once usable is turned into a desert which happens by ...
