Find out what NRCM is doing—and what you can do—to help reduce global warming pollution and climate change and advocate for clean, healthy air in Maine. What is Global Warming?
Brief description and effects of six important greenhouse gases are given below: Carbon dioxide CO2 — A naturally occurring gas produced by living organisms and fermentation. It is a normal component of the breath we exhale; it is hazardous in concentrated volumes.
Large quantity of carbon dioxide is produced by the combustion of carbonaceous fuels. Carbon dioxide emissions from fuel burning, responsible for about 87 percent of global warming, have increased by about 27 percent since the industrial revolution.
Nitrogen oxides NOx — Nitrogen oxides are naturally occurring from microbial action in soil. NOx is also produced by fuel burning. Scientists say its production is increased by the use of nitrogen based fertilizers in agriculture, as well as by the use of catalytic converters in automobiles.
Methane CH4 — Methane is a naturally occurring, in-flammable gas. Methane is produced by geological coal formations and by the decomposition of organic matters. Leading man-related sources of methane are landfills; livestock digestive processes and waste, especially ruminants cud-chewing animals ; and wetland rice cultivation.
Hydroflurocarbon gasses HFCs — Chlorofluorocarbons CFCthe coolant, cleaning, and propellant gases were blacklisted internationally due to its ozone-eating characteristics. HFCs do contribute to global warming.
Perfluorocarbons PFCor perflurocompounds — Man-made replacement gases for CFCs but result also as a by-product of aluminium smelting. PFCs also used as a purging agent for semi-conductor manufacture and small amounts are produced during uranium enrichment processes.
Sulfur hexafluoride SF6 — Very low atmospheric concentration makes it an ideal test gas for gas concentration monitors. Also used in water leak detection for cable cooling systems. SF6 is a man-made gas. The adverse effects of global warming — Over last years temperature remained remarkably stable across the globe, changing by little more than 2 degree Fahrenheit on an average.
The effects of global warming could change average temperatures five times as much as little ice age did — though in the opposite direction. Over the next century, the rate of the effects of global warming should follow a steep upward curve.
The adverse effects of global warming are enormous. The effects are already being felt on our planet, on human life, plants and animals worldwide. The predicted effects of global warming on the environment and for human life are numerous and varied.Introduction Nowadays, Global warming is an incontrovertible fact, which proves that our planet and its climate are in trouble.
Well global warming is a term that denotes a slow warming of the earth’s regular temperature.
It was also named exclusively man-made effects, in particular carbon dioxide. Climate Change is Harming Our Health,” which includes scientific evidence and accounts from doctors who see climate change exacerbating a wide range of health issues, including:Founded: Sep 18, Sep 14, · Global warming effects the environment in bad ways, and if it is not at least attempted to be stopped, it is only going to get worse.
One effect global warming has on the environment . Introduction Nowadays, Global warming is an incontrovertible fact, which proves that our planet and its climate are in trouble. Well global warming is a term that denotes a slow warming of the earth’s regular temperature. It was also named exclusively man-made effects, in particular carbon dioxide.
Oct 31, · Global Warming, greenhouse gases and their harmful effects – Urgent reduction of these are essential to save our environment: 1. Understanding Global Warming and Greenhouse Gases - The earth is surrounded by a cover of gases as atmosphere.
This atmosphere allows most of the light to pass through, which reaches the surface of earth. The name global warming is given to the phenomenon where there is an increase in the temperature of the Earth’s surface. This is typically due to the collection of greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide, water vapor, nitrous oxide and methane in the Earth’s atmosphere.
