Anthony Ferreira Dr. Amanda Gradisek Global Warming The Earth’s atmosphere helps protect the Earth from the sun’s radiation, which causes increased global temperatures. In order to keep the Earth’s average temperatures, the atmosphere must remain consistent. As a result of human pollution, the atmosphere deteriorates causing the sun to emit direct radiation to the earth’s surface causing unwanted effects and temperature increases. This pollution also creates high amounts of CO2 which becomes trapped in the atmosphere creating a greenhouse effect. With the CO2 layer in the atmosphere the heat from the sun gathers because the CO2 acts as a clear blanket, allowing the suns heat to reach the earth’s surface, but not allowing the heat to escape from the atmosphere. This increase in global temperatures can cause major problems such as flooding in areas with low elevation, and extinction of species in arctic climates. Global warming will continue to increase rapidly with the pollution of the atmosphere, and if nothing is done to prevent this damage, ongoing negative effects will remain. The increasing effects of global warming must be regulated in order to reduce these pollutants that destruct the atmosphere and result in catastrophic temperature
