Global warming is one of the most serious issues that the world is facing today. What are the causes of global warming and what measures can governments and individuals take to tackle the issue?
In the jet age of the 21st century, industrialization and development in technology brought revolutionary changes in climate conditions. The biggest change is global warming which is heating up of earth's atmosphere due to various reasons. Its negative consequences can be mitigated by adopting suitable policies by both government and the public. In the following paragraphs, I am going to discuss reasons and provide some solutions for the present miserable situation.
Firstly, the greenhouse effect is a natural phenomenon which is, unfortunately, results in a rise in earth temperature as due to ozone depletion sun energy is directly absorbed by greenhouse gases present in the atmospheric layers. Secondly, a plethora of man-made causes cannot be ignored. Although people know the importance of trees and forests for their livelihood, they are still involved in deforestation activities just for their selfishness and greediness. Also, some forms of pollution like the emission of harmful and toxic gases from power plants, contaminated water from factories, use of excessive fertilizers on croplands contribute to aggravate the circumstances.
Nevertheless, there are potential ways to address this problematic condition or at least to reduce the effects. First of all, the government should establish suitable rules and regulations to save the environment and charge with penality to the law-breakers. In addition, Afforestation can be an extraordinary initiative taken by either the government or society. Along with this, pollution can be reduced by using public transportation, carpooling, preference for walking and cycling for short distances such as to workplaces. Finally, small things like using fewer packages, plastic bottles and papers, use of biodegradable goods, planting more trees can help.
To conclude, if we have to save our planet, treat environmental safety to our priority. Even though global warming is dangerous, a little awareness to the young generation can lead to reducing unusual concerns.
