Global Warming

In a classmates blog she talks about the climatic changes and global warming. Global warming is the increase of the earth's temperature mainly caused by human uses of fossil fuels and deforestation of rain forests, which in turn causes the Greenhouse effect. The rise in the earth's temperature causes ocean waters to warm, glaciers and frozen tundra of the North and South Poles to defrost, droughts in warmer parts of the world and many other earth changes. All of these warming trends have a dramatic effect on our animals, mammals and plant life.

Some people believe that there is no global warming; however, scientists have proven that the temperature of the earth has risen since the Industrial Revolution. In her blog she talks about the impact it’s having on places such as Houston, one of the most heavily populated cities in the US. I agree with her that it is a major threat facing our planet. We should all make simple changes such as recycling, reusing, and buying energy efficient products. These are just a few solutions to reduce global warming.
