As our world gets older drastic things begin to happen; things of such great proportion that everyone someday will be affected in some way. Global warming is one issue that is affecting everyone and everything. Its impact on the world is enormous. As an architect my field of work will have to change. The way buildings are designed and built will have to change due to the effects on the earth because of global warming. There are many factors, as an architect, which I will have to take into consideration as I design and build these buildings. As nature changes so will architecture. Greenhouse gas emission is big cause of the global warming. The gases are trapping energy from the sun from escaping, which causes the earth to heat up. These gases act like glass in a greenhouse. The glass in a greenhouse let heat in but do not let the energy escape (Climate 2). That is what is happening with our world. As architects we must come up with a new way to prevent the release of these gases. Buildings are responsible for almost half of the gases being released into the atmosphere. This includes the materials used and the energy used to build and maintain the building (Global). There are many things an architect is now forced to do in order to help prevent this growing issue of global warming. Also, there are things the architect has to take into consideration when designing due to the issues already occurring happening due to the warming.
