What is Global Warming?

 

 

The definition of Global Warming is the increase of the average temperature of the surface of the earth. The increase of the temperature is what attributes to the “Greenhouse Effect” in simple words; this means that the heat of the sun gets caught in our atmosphere.

Scientific evidence relates a variety of human activities of the Industrial Era to the rapid acceleration of the Greenhouse Effect in our atmosphere. Since 1980 there has been a constant decrease of 4% per decade of the Ozone layer, this layer is very important to any type of life on earth because it protects us from the UV radiation of the sun, which is incredibly bad for any of us. The deterioration of the Ozone layer is directly linked to the augmentation of skin cancer, cataracts, failure in the immune system, crop damage and the probable extinction of plankton. In 1973 scientists found that the problem with the destruction of the Ozone layer came from the chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) which where utilized on aerosol sprays and as a cooling system in air conditioners and refrigerators.

The previous paragraphs may seem as overwhelming information that you may consider as non-important or maybe even boring but it is tremendously essential to understand where this problem is coming from in order to start helping. Global Warming is not a chronic disease that our planet is going through, this disease has a cure and it starts with you.
