How to stop global warming
Global warming is a serious problem! Act now or you’re the planet could be gone!
So what is global warming? and the more important question, how to stop global warming? global warming is simple the warming of the surface, water and the planet’s atmosphere. Now you’re asking well how does that happen? well, the planet continuously absorbs the suns energy, now when we have greenhouse gases such as water vapour, the energy gets trapped inside. This leads to heat getting trapped, and how did these gasses get into the atmosphere in the first place? Humans burning fossil fuels.
Fossil fuels are the results of fossils getting crushed over millions of years eventually developing into chemicals such as oil, so do we need to worry about global warming? Yes, yes and yes.
Droughts become much longer, Storms become more powerful, Fires burn for longer, and sea levels rise, this eventually leads to human deaths, the more intense the above get, the more deaths. The worst part is, we don’t just punish humans with global warming, we punish animals too… it affects the food chain immensely, it affects migration (you might have heard of sharks being found near Britain) and it also affects their sleeping patterns and also threatens the extinction of
arctic animals (feel bad yet?)
What else happens?
Well as the earth starts to warm, mosquitos start to breed more and migrate further, spreading disease. We definitely do not want disease now, do we? The earth has risen about 1.4 degrees over the last 100 years and well the truth is it is accelerating, fast. Over the next 100 years, scientists expect it to rise about 2-11 degrees. can you imagine it rising 11 degrees? scientists believe 2 degrees will be devastating enough. The worst part? If we carry on at this rate, the planet will be so hot no life will be able to live. it will be completely uninhabitable. Carry on reading if you want to learn how to stop global warming.
How to stop global warming?
Well one theory is that we spray sulphur into the atmosphere, as sulphur blocks out sunlight this will lead to the planet cooling, one side effect of this would be our sky would be a purplish colour (purple is my favourite colour so I don’t mind)
Another cool idea you ask? well, we could grow algae on the building, due to the absorption rate of algae it would greatly rude the CO2 emissions that head off into the atmosphere.
One more you ask? mirrors. you heard it right, mirrors. One scientist believes launching 1 trillion mirrors into space would reduce the heat entering the planet by a massive amount! although this would cost roughly $350 trillion dollars!
So what is our conclusion? How do we stop global warming? if you want the planet to stay alive then do your part and research ways on how to help, maybe buy an electric car and stop burning those fossil fuels!
