It is the projected imminent climate change attributed to the green house effect. It is estimated that by 2030 the average global temperature will
have risen by between 0.7 and 2.0°c.This would raise the average levels of the seas due to the world’s oceans expanding as they warm up and possible melting of the edges of the polar ice caps, creating a substantial risk of low –lying areas and even countries being completely and permanently flooded in many areas. Climate changes on this scale would also have a dramatic impact on biodiversity in different areas and crops could be damaged by climate change. In the UK. Wetland and peat land areas as well as many coastal communities are reckoned to be most under threat. However, predictions about global warming and its possible climatic effects are tentative and often conflict with each other.
By driving cars, using electricity from coal-fired power plants, or heating our homes with oil or natural gas, we release carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases into the atmosphere.
Deforestation is another significant source of greenhouse gases, because fewer trees mean less carbon dioxide conversion to oxygen.
If you have the means to plant a tree, start planting because during photosynthesis, trees and other plants absorb carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. They are an integral part of the natural atmospheric exchange cycle here on Earth, but there are too few of them to fully counter the increases in carbon dioxide caused by automobile traffic, manufacturing and other human activities. A single tree will absorb approximately one ton of carbon dioxide during its lifetime.
By recycling half of your household waste, you can prevent 2,400 pounds of carbon dioxide annually. Do your part to reduce waste by choosing reusable products instead of disposables.
