When the temperature of the earth’s atmosphere begins to get hotter and increases over time, this is called global warming. Global warming happens because of the levels of pollutants increases, such as chlorofluorocarbons and carbon dioxide. Global warming occurs so slowly that it could go up about 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit in ten years.
Global warming can be stopped by using energy sources that are renewable such as biomass, solar, wind, geothermal, and other clean energies. It is essential to stop using fossil fuels to slow down global warming.
We are seeing changes all the time with temperatures rising, glaciers melting, extreme weather, which is causing damage and floods all over the world.
It’s having and effect on wildlife and insects. It’s even affecting bees if flowers are blooming earlier. They have no bees to pollinate them. What happens?
As winter warms, bears can’t sleep, and not all American black bears are hibernating.
Birds are migrating each spring earlier because of warming weather [link]
These changes are caused by Global Warming or Climate Change. So, let’s take time and read why this could be happening.
Climate is everything that happens around us that has to do with the weather.
Climate has to do with how hot or cold it is, how much rain we get, how fast the wind is blowing, and more.
Global temperatures are when the Earth’s temperature changes over time.
For example, the ice age was one global temperature because ice once covered the Earth, and then it melted because everything warmed up and got hotter.
Global warming is important to understand because even when the temperature of the earth changes just a little bit, it can change our environment.
Global warming is caused by gasses that get into the atmosphere and cause the temperature to change.
Many scientists have studied global warming, and some believe that gases such as carbon dioxide cause there to be more sun and when this happens, it causes the Earth to be warmer.
Other scientists believe that global warming is just a natural thing that happens because of the different cycles that happen such as the water cycle and the carbon cycle.
Many believe that the Earth will warm and cool over time naturally and that it has nothing to do with what we do on Earth.
Greenhouse gases are gases that are used to help keep the Earth warm. When there are more greenhouse gases that are released into the atmosphere, the atmosphere will continue to get warmer and warmer.
Some of the greenhouse gases are
There are many things that cause greenhouse gases to be released into the atmosphere such as pollution, the heat from the sun, volcanic eruptions, and more.
Even though there is not much that people can do to stop natural disasters from releasing greenhouse gases, we can help by being careful what we do.
Driving a car can release a lot of greenhouse gases and using electricity does the same.
If we can learn to ride our bikes or to walk instead of always using a car, this could help the environment.
Also, planting trees is a great way to help protect the Earth from global warming.
