Celmate Change WHAT IS CLIMATE CHANGE? Climate change is the global phenomenon of climate transformation characterized by the changes in the usual climate of the planet (e.g. temperature or wind), that are especially caused by human activities. As a result, the sustainability of the planet's ecosystems is under threat, as.. well as the future of humankind and the estability of the global economy. CAUSES OF CLIMATE CHANGE •As a result of the industrial revolution = earth's surface is warming up. > a major reason for rising temperatures is concentration of green house gases in the earth's sitmosphere. • elarth's atmosphere consists of gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and water vapor. •natural greenhouse effect is helpful for our planet, without it our. temperatures would be around minus 18 degrees Celsius Greenhouse effect: normally the sun's radiation would be reflected back to space but some gases trap the sun's heat and send it back to the earth's. surface ? this way, our earh stays warm. • human activities, e-g.burning fossil fuels like oil and coal to power our homes, factories, airplanes and cars, have increased amount of greenhouse gases in the earth's atmosphere >result of the greenhouse gas emissions: Greenhouse effect intensifies > problem: these gases trap too much heat. > this excessive greenhouse effect results in global warming which is...
