Let us look onto what is Global Warming, causes of global warming. Also we will see how is it a threat to the world and how to control global warming. What is Global Warming? Over the past 50 years, the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history. Experts see the trend dangerously accelerating over the course of time. Watch the video below to know about global warming how to control it - https://youtu.be/Q4gemH4WS1c What causes global warming? Global warming occurs when carbon dioxide (CO2), other air pollutants, and greenhouse gases collect in the atmosphere and absorb sunlight and solar radiation. These pollutants trap the heat and cause the planet to get hotter. How is global warming linked to extreme weather? Extreme heat waves have caused tens of thousands of deaths around the world in recent years along with that there have been numerous floods because of the melting glaciers in the Poles hence all leading to an imbalance in weather conditions. This will give us an idea about how to control global warming. What are the other effects of global warming? Melting glaciers, early snowmelt, and severe droughts will cause more dramatic water shortages and increase the risk of wildfires in the American West. Rising sea levels will lead to coastal flooding on the Eastern Seaboard, especially in Florida, and in other areas such as the Gulf of Mexico. Forests, farms, and cities will face troublesome new pests, heat waves, heavy downpours, and increased flooding. All those factors will damage or destroy agriculture and fisheries. Disruption of habitats such as coral reefs and Alpine meadows could drive many plant and animal species to extinction. Climate change is not a hoax it is actually happening and there are a lot of people who are getting affected by it (negatively) and it is high time we take up the responsibility to make our future Earth a better place to live in. So, now we know the causes of global warming, it's in our hand what we want to do. You might wonder, how can global warming be prevented, whenever you go through some news regarding its drastic outcomes. Here are some steps to prevent global warming.
