The change in weather pattern and atmospheric temperature is known as climate change. It is also known as Global Warming. Scientists believe that the earth is currently facing a period of rapid warming brought on by rising the levels of heat-trapping gases, also known as greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
Greenhouse effects are effects of the gases or energy received from the outer atmosphere in the form of light inside the earth surface emitting the infrared radiations. With more greenhouse gases mixed in the air, the atmosphere acts like a thickening blanket and traps more heat. It has been making the earth hotter and hotter day by day.
Effects of Climate Change
The earth’s climate nowadays is changing very rapidly and differently. Climate change in the world can be caused by various activities. When climate change occurs, temperature rises and many different changes can occur on the earth. Some of the measurable effects are mentioned below:
There are various measures to control the climate change. Some of them are given below:
It is our duty and responsibility to solve these types of problems from the world. Time has come to think about the excessive use of natural sources and rapid growth of industries and urbanization. As a result, the developing countries like ours which has an insignificant role in carbon emission is suffering from the adverse effects of climate change. It is an alarm to the world indicating that our survival on earth is at risk due to the rising temperature of the earth.
The causes of climate change and global warming are as follows:
Climate change can be controlled by following measures:
The adverse effects of climate change are as follow:
The period of rapid warming brought on by rising levels of heat-trapping gases is known as global warming.
Weather, glacial ice, sea levels, agriculture, wildlife and human health suffer the adverse effects of climate change.
The two measures of controlling change are as follows:
Reduction of greenhouse gases likes carbon dioxide and methane.
Afforestation and control over deforestation.
Biodiversity means the sum of all the variations of nature.
The two measurable effects of climate change are:
The change in weather pattern and atmospheric temperature is known as _______________ .
Irregular rainfalls and frequent storms are the effects of ________________ .
Which one of the following is the main cause of global warming?
