The Seriousness of Global Warming 2 Introduction to Global Warming Today’s’ generation is facing a most critical and controversial issue which is known as global warming. The effect of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide has resulted into the increase of earth’s average surface temperature which in turn gives rise to global warming. The too much carbon dioxide gas in the atmosphere acts as a trapping heat and warms the planet thus causing the problem of global warming[Glo151]. Moreover, the global warming has badly affected our health, climate and communities. The global warming has changed the climate patterns to a great extent across the globe. Thus, there is a need to take immediate actions otherwise global warming will continue to affect our communities, our health, and our climate. Causes of Global Warming The emission of greenhouse gas which is carbon dioxide gas due to several following reasons has risen up the planet’s temperature thus giving rise to the global warming problem. Burning fossil fuels have resulted into the emission of carbon dioxide gas which has raised up the planet’s temperature thus gives rise to global warming. Burning of gasoline for transportation has also resulted into the emission of carbon dioxide gas. Agriculture such as rice paddies has resulted into the methane gas which is also a reason of global warming. The use of forests for fuels for both wood and charcoal has given rise to the problem of deforestation which in turn causes global warming. Increase usage of chemical fertilizers on croplands has also resulted into the increase in global warming problem[Der09]. Impacts of Global Warming

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
