The Green House Effect

 

Human civilization has developed many folds in the last century than in the previous 2000 years. This development more in the field of science and new products has had an adverse effect. The cost on ecology of the planet is incalculable. Basically this development has resulted in releasing toxic wastes that have depleted the earth’s natural protection against solar radiation.  Thus development by  itself has no meaning in case it devastates the all around nature.

The result is that gases like Carbon dioxide, methane have increased as a proportion. This has resulted in rise of the earth’s temperature and is referred

to as global warming.
Global warming is a serious phenomena and it is only in the last 50 years that scientists have been able to understand this phenomena.

The rise in the earth’s temperature by itself can be catastrophic in the long run. It will trigger in climate changes. This will result in the ice caps in the Polar Regions melting and this would mean a rise in sea levels. The result is that many archipelagos and islands in the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific Ocean would be simply submerged. One can just imagine what will happen if island nations like the Maldives or the Pacific islands of Tahiti and Hawaii are


completely submerged. Entire civilizations would be wiped out. These climate changes cannot be trifled with. There is an excellent 1995 Hollywood movie on such a scenerio titled "Water World" with Kevin kostner. The film is a science fiction movie and the background is that the earth is covered with water. This can be a frightening scenario.

The warmers seas would also affect the formation of winds and currents, resulting in greater thunderstorms, tornadoes and Tsunami’s. These could wreck civilizations in the coastal areas. Global warming is not to be trifled with and urgent steps to combat it are required. The silver lining is that many scientist have recognized this phenomena and the world has awoken up from its slumber as recognition of the danger has dawned on the nations.   But generally it is recognized that recognition of the  danger is not enough and   concerted steps are needed to tackle  the problem like doing away with everything that can effect the ecology of aregion. in this the western nations are the biggest culprits and a rethink by them is essential

    steps are being taken to reduced the human carbon footprint across the globe. Countries are putting in places measures to reduced the effect of global warming in the world. The movement is costly but effective, let's hope we can keep it up.

    Yes global warming is more serious now than before. However, based on what i have seen and read so far, many nations and people are waking up to the realization of the devastating effects of global warming. Climate change is on the lips of everyone and people are taking steps to combat it. Let's hope the movement continues in a positive direction.

      Thanks nbillett, but the fact is the ordinary people are yet not really concerned and there is not much awareness of the danger
