What is climate change? Climate change is the average temperature of Earth has increases since 1950 until now the temperature continuing increasing. Climate change can also refers to climate change that causes an increase in the average of temperature. However climate change are causes by natural events and human that are believed to be contribute to increase in average temperatures.
Causes of Climate Change
Climate change is a serious issue and is not a single issue but a number of environmental issues. Climate change is a rise in the surface temperature of the earth that has changed various life forms on the earth. The issues that cause Climate change are divided into two categories include “natural” and “human influences” of climate change.
Natural Causes of Climate Change
The climate has continuously changing for centuries. The climate change happens because the natural rotation of the sun that changes the intensity of sunlight and moving closer to the earth.
Another cause of climate change is greenhouse gases. Greenhouse gases are carbon monoxide and sulphur dioxide it trap the solar heats rays and prevent it from escaping from the surface of the earth. This has cause the temperature of the earth increase.
Volcanic eruptions are another issue that causes climate change. For instance, a single volcanic eruption will release amount of carbon dioxide and ash to the atmosphere. Once carbon dioxide increase, the temperature of earth increase and greenhouse trap the solar radiations in the earth.
Finally, methane is another issue that causes climate change. Methane is also a greenhouse gas. Methane is more effective in trapping heat in the atmosphere that carbon dioxide by 20 times. Usually methane gas can release from many areas. For instance,...
