Global warming is a topic that is thrown around. Not many people pay attention to global warming. One reason might be is people don’t know what causes this to happen. Global warming could have a huge effect on the world someday. People don’t seem to care enough to do anything to prevent global warming.
One cause of global warming is greenhouse gasses. Greenhouse gasses trap heat in the earth’s atmosphere. One kind of gas is methane. Methane is a very deadly gas to the environment. Another cause of global warming is man-made causes. One man-made cause is pollution. Pollution comes in many shapes and sizes. The burning of fossil fuels is one way to cause pollution.
According to one source these are the top ten reasons for global warming. The first reason is carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel burning power plants. 40% of all CO2 emissions come from burning coal. The second reason is carbon dioxide emissions from burning gasoline for transportation. The third reason is methane emissions from animals. The creation of methane takes place in the intestines of most herbivorous animals. The forth reason is deforestation, we need wood for fuel. The last reason is the increase in usage of chemical fertilizers on croplands.
Here are five other reasons for global warming. One reason is forest fires. Forest fires cause snow to melt faster, which brings spring faster. Global warming causes mountains to rebound faster. The rising temps that come with global warming causes huge amounts of ice to melt. Another reason for global warming is plants in artic conditions have more time to grow with snow melting earlier. One final reason for global warming is the more ice and snow that melts the less home polar bears have to claim.
There are many reasons for global warming. Many are more harmful than others. The surprising thing is most causes of global warming are the little things we do every day. We all have to work together to prevent global warming. Think of how many animals we can save by preventing global warming.
