Scientists believe these are mostly caused by man’s activities including the burning of fossil fuels thus, “releasing carbon dioxide, COgas it is “also released in landfills and agriculture (especially from the digestive systems of grazing animals), nitrous oxide from fertilizers, gases used for refrigeration and industrial processes, and the loss of forests that would otherwise store CO” Carbon dioxide is the highest cause of global warming among other greenhouse gases which also include: methane, nitrous oxide, and some other artificial gases.
This has been on the increase as a result of industrialization and commercialization.
Scientist today think that humans cause global and warming and some do not believe in this theory.
Solution Managing forests and agriculture: Taken together, tropical deforestation and emissions from agriculture represent nearly 30 percent of the world's heat-trapping emissions.
Development of the next generation of low-carbon technologies will be critical to deep mid-century reductions in global emissions.
Impact on climate change must include financial assistance from richer countries to poorer countries to help make the transition to low-carbon development pathways.As this phenomenon undermines food and water security, environmental sustainability and a disruption in the delicate balance of the ecosystem, climate change becomes inevitable coming with its dire consequences.According to World Bank sources, the Millennium Development Goals MDGs and its prospects are also threatened by global climate changes.Especially in China, the United States, the Russian Federation, India and Japan who are the world highest emitters of carbon dioxide.(World Bank, 2010) Although the activities of man as regards to contributing to global warming are overwhelming and substantial, they are also caused by natural influences such as solar and volcanic activities The importance therefore of mitigating the effects of global warming cannot be overemphasized as the consequence of not doing same could be very devastating.For instance, the World Bank 2010 development Indicators puts it succinctly: “The poorest countries and regions face the greatest danger.Africa – with the most rain-fed agricultural land of any continent, half its population without access to improved water sources, and about 70 percent without access to improved sanitation facilities – is particularly vulnerable to climate change”. In the United States, the views are “divided along ideological lines.” The Pew Research Center’s 2009 survey on global warming discovered that between the liberals and the conservatives, the former agree more than twice that global warming is a severe problem (about 66% vs. According to that survey, a similar divide is also evident in Britain.Environment, Increased green plants activity in high northern. Increased plankton (energy from) wood and plant material in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre ((many people would say) ENSO/PDO might be most in control/most common influence ) Recent increase in forest growth, Ocean surface water, Oceans uptake of carbon dioxide, moderates future global warming.Economical, Increased cod fishing leading to improved Greenland economy.Health, Winter deaths will decline as temperatures warm.Arctic Melt, An ice-free Northwest Passage, providing a shipping shortcut between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.
