The governing bodies all over the world are in need of having a new perspective on this depleting ecosystem, to preserve it, to provide long term good health for all the people, all over the world. The continued stability of the life supporting systems of the biosphere weighs heavily on the actions taken by the government. With temperatures rising everyday and with pollution going overboard, it is time for the UK government to start taking steps to minimize the rate of depletion, the environment is going through. Thereby, a better future can be ensured in the coming years.
Environmental changes refer to the drastic change taking place in air, water, climate and other natural activities, globally. Though climate change has been widely acknowledged, there is still an uncertainty on how large and how fast the predicted effects will be on the environment. Several events in the recent past such as the hurricane Katrina in South Atlantic and the heat waves which took hundreds of lives in Europe, certainly raised questions over stability of climate. All of these cannot be attributed only to climate change. But certainly, it becomes the frontrunner when these events are predicted to occur more in future.
Global warming is the main cause for the climate change happening all over the world. ...
This striking increase in temperature is definitely due to global warming which is further pronounced with the emission of green house gases and air pollution. Global warming is further pronounced with the depletion of ozone layer. It has resulted in the penetration of UV rays into earth and thereby causing damages to human health causing skin diseases.
Greenhouse effect happens because of gases being trapped by certain gases in the atmosphere. The above figure (National academic Reports, 2006) indicates one point of view of how the green house gases increase the surface temperature. The green house gases, Carbon Dioxide and Chloro Fluro Carbons when released into air, cause warming of the earth which evaporates the ocean water. But the fact that water vapour itself is a green house gas adds to global warming. A large quantity of water vapour acts as a blanket which covers the earth. This in turn shields the sunlight entering into earth and thereby cools the temperature on earth. Whereas less vapour, increases the temperature further more. Temperature acts as one of the critical characteristic for climate in identifying the distribution effects in physical and biological systems.
Contemporary effects of Climate change
The changes taking place in climate is likely to pose huge differences in natural resources and assets of different countries. It is one of the key factors to determine the characteristics of natural systems which include the biosphere, agriculture, forestry, terrestrial biological systems and water resources. Climate changes are known to influence the distribution and abundance patterns of both plants and animals, due to the physiological constraints of each species.
