Rise in environmental temperature and changes in

This preview shows page 2 - 3 out of 6 pages.

Rise in environmental temperature and changes in related processes are directly connected to increasing anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the atmosphere .This rise in temperature was vehemently argued to be generally triggered by the emission of carbon based compound from fossil fuels consumption for power generation. The concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide are all known to be increasing and in recent year, so their greenhouse gases, principally chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), have been added in significant quantifies to the atmosphere. II. H ISTORY O F G REENHOUSE G ASES The existence of the greenhouse effect was argued for by Joseph Fourier in 1824. The argument and the evidence was further strengthened by Claude Pouillet in 1827 and 1838, and reasoned from experimental observations by John Tyndall in 1859. The effect was more fully quantified by Svante Arrhenius in 1896. However, the term "greenhouse" wasn't used to describe the effect by any of these scientists; the term was first used in this way by Nils Gustaf Ekholm in 1901. In 1917 Alexander Graham Bell wrote. The unchecked burning of fossil fuels] would have a sort of greenhouse effect", and "The net result is the greenhouse becomes a sort of hot-house." Bell went on to also advocate the use of alternate energy sources, such as solar energy. III. L ITERATURE R EVIEW Bjorn Ulsterman et al. (2007), has published paper on Modeling carbon cycles and estimation of greenhouse gas emissions from organic and conventional farming systems. It gives information on carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) fluxes in the system soil plant animal environment. The model couples the balancing of C, N and energy fluxes with the target to estimate the climate-relevant CO 2 , CH 4 and N 2 O sources and sinks of farming systems. For the determination of the net greenhouse effect, calculations of C sequestration in the soil, CO 2 emissions from the use of fossil energy, CH 4 emissions from livestock keeping and N 2 O emissions from the soil have been made. The results were converted into CO 2 equivalents using its specific global warming potential (GWP) Y.S. Mohammed, et al. (2012) has published paper on (A Synopsis on the Effects of Anthropogenic Greenhouse Gases Emissions from Power Generation and Energy Consumption).It gives information about Despite the looming difficult energy context in the majority of countries in the world, global change in environmental dignity resulting from power generation and energy consumption scenario is rapidly becoming a globally disturbing phenomenon. Stakeholders and environmental activists alike have been clamouring for adoption of reduction procedures using sustainable means because ignominious environmental practices have associated disastrous

    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.
