People today question how far can we push the planet. Today, right now, carbon dioxide is being polluted into the atmosphere from just doing everyday things such as driving, factories and so on. How will all these chemicals in the air affect us? No one can say exactly, but scientists think it has already started to affect us.
We are witnessing these happenings and taking note. There has been more warming around the world near the poles. Its permafrost soil is starting to melt, and the ice is starting the break apart. Weather is getting stranger and seems to be fueled by additional heat.
This wouldn’t be the first time that the weather went bad. The best examples are ice ages. All these man made gasses in the atmosphere could soon affect us in a harsh way. Not only people are being affected, but so is everything else. Our polluting is hurting other species such as polar bears. The ice is melting and studies estimate that global sea levels will rise about 7 feet in times come.
We can slow down global warming by burning less and less fossil fuels. The more we burn the more greenhouse gasses are being released into the atmosphere, and over time gas concentration will rise, and so will our temperature.
Global warming is a man-made crisis. It is caused by fossil fuels burning and going into our environment. It affects the whole planet and its climate. Over time the earth will heat up due to much polluting, and it will affect us all.
