Global Warming 

What is Global warming?

Global warming is the process
of increase in the temperature near the earth’s surface. The process has been
observed over centuries and has extremely disturbed the weather and climatic conditions
of the earth. 


Causes of Global Warming:


Plants and trees
play a very crucial part in maintaining balance in ecosystem by taking in
carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen. Forests are being cut continuously for
domestic and commercial purposes which creates an imbalance in the ecosystem
which causes global warming.



Vehicle Usage

All the
vehicles, when in use, emit various gaseous emissions like carbon dioxide and
other toxic substances into the atmosphere. This leads to increase in
temperature which causes global warming.



 The ozone rays play a very crucial part in
protecting the earth surface from harmful UV (ultra violet) rays. Excessive usage
of air conditioners and refrigerators by people have increased the number of CFCs
into the environment which negatively impacts the ozone layer.

Due to CFC’s,
ozone layer depletes which makes the entry of ultraviolet rays easier.  This leads to increase in temperature which
causes global warming.



It can be observed
that the temperature of earth surface has also been increasing rapidly due to
advent of
industrialization. It is because industries emit the harmful
emissions leading to increase in temperature of the earth leading to global warming.


Harmful Effects of Global Warming:

Increase in Temperature

The continuous rise
in earth’s temperature has led to increased melting of glaciers which have negatively
impacted the sea level. This could have harmful effects on coastal regions.


Danger to the Ecosystem

Increase in temperature
caused by global warming has affected the coral reefs in a negative manner. The
rising temperatures have increased the fragility of coral reefs and the plants
and animal lives were also severely affected.


Climatic imbalances

imbalances are also one of the negative consequences of global warming. Some
places experience floods and some places face droughts due to the same.


Spreading of Diseases

Global warming
leads to the movement of disease carrying mosquitoes. This is because global
warming is responsible for changing patterns of heat and humidity.



Harms human life

Increase in
natural disasters such as floods, tsunamis, etc, the average death toll is
increasing very rapidly due to global warming. This can lead to spread of
diseases which could harm the human life.


Loss of Biodiversity

Due to global
change in climatic conditions, habitat of several plants and animals are lost. Due
to this, animals migrate from their natural habitat. Many species of plants and
animals have also become extinct. Thus, global warming has an adverse impact on
biodiversity too.




Through this article
one can understand how harmful global warming is and how harmful can it be to
the plants, animals and humans. This is a serious issue which needs to be
addressed by all the people as a united team.
