What have we done to our Earth

Yesterday we smoked the green, today we want to keep it clean!

We had shared our concern in the earlier post. Planet Earth, recipient of nature's forming forces over millions of years, continues to be disrupted by many factors and we humans are responsible for the present condition. 

#1 Global Warming


Global Warming is the increase of Earth's average surface temperature. There are 2 prime causes:
  • Due to the presence of certain greenhouse gases that trap heat, like carbon dioxide, methane, water vapour, and CFCs, the atmosphere retains the sun`s radiation and warms up the planet. 
  • Deforestation

Effects: Global warming and extreme weather are causing glaciers to melt, climate changes, rising sea levels, coastal damage, floods, crop failures.

      
#2 Pollution
  • Air pollution has been caused by the injurious smoke emitted by cars, buses, trucks, trains, and factories, namely sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides. 
  • Even smoke from burning leaves and cigarettes are harmful. 
  • Water pollution  has been caused by the industrial waste products released into lakes, rivers, and other water bodies which has made marine life no longer hospitable. 
  • Humans pollute water with large scale disposal of garbage, flowers, ashes and other household waste. 
Effects: Development of acid rain and destruction of the natural habitat for plants and animals. There are also health issues such as coughs, burning eyes and breathing problems from polluted air
