Global warming simply means the presence of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere beyond the permissible limits. The overabundance of carbon dioxide that is present in the atmosphere will capture the heat from the rays of the sun and form a blanket that is warming our planet Earth. By definition, Global Warming is the increase in average temperature that gradually warms the Earth's atmosphere.
It is a phenomenon, which has been on the rise but in the last century, the increase in the levels have been alarming. It has been proven that our planet Earth is the only planet that we know of in our solar system capable of sustaining life. Humans and animals need oxygen and of course water to survive. Slowly but surely we are destroying not only the air we breathe, but also our water supply.
Without water and oxygen, all life forms on Earth would perish. The average temperature of the atmosphere has risen by 0.74 - 0.18oC during the last century. According to the study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), it is observed that the increase in global average temperature has been caused due to an increase in greenhouse gas concentrations. This has led to an unprecedented warming of the Earth's surface.
We are polluting our water supply and causing our fish to die because humans are putting chemicals, litter, old tires, and garbage in our waterways. Our ozone layer protects us from the heat and radiation given off by our sun. The more factories and vehicles that are on the road, the more we are breaking down our ozone layer. Because of the damage we have already done to the ozone layer, we are already feeling the effects of the damage and are experiencing global warming.
The earth's temperature is increasing and unless we protect our planet, we will continue to destroy it. Unfortunately there's only one Earth and if we destroy it, then we'll ultimately destroy ourselves. The major source for this rising global warming situation is the human beings living in this planet and it is up to us humans to concentrate on the features that will help to reduce the effect of global warming or will alleviate the occurrence of global warming on our planet. The combating of this dilemma called global warming can be carried out by concentrating on these few points: - Conserve energy - There are so many ways in which you can conserve energy like turning off appliances that are not in use; pooling of cars to go for office or function; using energy efficient lamps; not using appliances that release chlorofluorocarbons(CFC); planting more trees etc.
- Cut on the work hours - This will help save energy and if this is practiced by all the working professionals all over the world, then millions of energy can be saved, which will lead to stopping global warming. - Recycled products - Use products that have fewer microns which will help in the increase of pollution that will lead to increase in the global warming. - Environment friendly fuels and vehicles - Although it may be a bit expensive, but will not contribute to polluting the environment. - Natural Energy - Usage of solar energy, wind power or water energy to generate electricity for homes and offices.
While debates and conferences around the world are occurring to address this alarming global warming issue, another effective method to spread this save the planet message is none other than through songs. Such Go Green and Global Warming songs have since hit the music industries with a subtle approach.
