CLIMATE CHANGE

September 3, 2012

A greenhouse gas is a component of the atmosphere that absorbs radiation emaniating from the earth’s surface. Many of the gases emitted into the atmosphere by modern industrial processes are greenhouse gases. They include carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, methane, and nitrous oxide.

More than 25 billion tons of carbon dioxide alone is now released into our atmosphere every year. Reports indicate that sinde the start of the industrial age, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have risen by 40%. Tens of thousands of people have died from air pollution.

The world must come together to confront climate change. If we do nothing we will face more drought … All too often political and economic benefits outweigh long-term environmental factors..
