According to a Yale poll, 71% of the American believe that global warming is real. 48% agree that there is a large consensus among the climate scientists on global warming. And 40% believe global warming is still a subject of significant scientific disagreement.
Concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are increasing at an alarming rate. Majority of the world’s climate scientists agree that human activities are indeed the main reason behind climate change. This high degree of agreement among climate scientists has been established because of compelling evidences which show that the climate is indeed changing because of anthropogenic causes.
The causes of climate change can be classified into two types; natural and anthropogenic. Both of these factors can change the climate of earth. Before the influence of human activities, climate change resulted from natural causes like volcanic eruptions, changes in the orbit and solar activity.
Climate change is a burning environmental issue and it is now surer than ever that humans are the main cause behind the changing climate. The disability to retain this change will effect every life on this planet and soon result on their annihilation.
The effects of climate change is seen in different parts of the world. It is important for people to realize the reality of this global issue. Many people still think that climate change won’t have significant effects on their lives. But there are real, damaging implications of climate change. Some of the effects of climate change are
Climate patterns shape natural ecosystems and affect everyone on the planet. The changing climate has effects in several aspects of the human lifestyle like food production, health and availability of resources. There is an overwhelming body of evidences showing the implications of change in the global climate because of human activities, from melting glaciers to rise in sea levels. Here are 25 facts about climate change:
Water is a basic need for our survival and hence it should be in our best interest to keep our water resources free from pollution. Water pollution can be reduced from a personal level to national and international level. The crucial solutions to this problem ultimately come down to personal responsibility because every one of us is to be blamed for the pollution of water.
You wouldn’t think you could kill an ocean, would you? But we’ll do it one day. That’s how negligent we are. ― Ian Rankin, Blood Hunt Water is a vital resource required for survival of all kinds of life forms found on the earth. Pollution of this resource threatens the existence of life.
Water resources around the world are being exploited by human activities. We must be conscious about the pollution of water resources considering that water is a basic need for our survival. Water pollution is a serious threat to our health, the ecosystem, and the natural environment.
The contamination of our water resources such as rivers, streams, groundwater, seas and oceans because of introduction of various pollutants is known as water pollution.
