Climate changeClimate change is one of the most significant threats facing the world today. The change became more adverse after the introduction of industrial revolution where industries emitted their gases in the atmosphere. Human emissions and activities have caused almost 100% of the warming experienced in decades. They have played a greater part in the increasing rate of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere .
This is through burning of fossil fuels and clearing trees that absorb carbon dioxide thus sending heat trapping gases in the atmosphere.Natural factors including solar activity, volcanic activity, causes change in solar energy output thus affecting the earths energy balance and climate. Global warming could be part of a natural cycle since carbon dioxide increases due to continuous burning of coal, oil and natural gases.To address the increasing demand for energy by households and industries, alternative sources of energy which are environmental friendly such as nuclear, solar and wind energy ought to be put in place despite their high cost which would lead to a few countries being able to afford to generate the energy.Despite numerous revelations and theories from scientists, many individuals ignore and deny the science behind climate change because they do not understand the urgency of the crisis since what they believe in is more deeply rooted.As long as human continue with their destructive and inconsiderate and hard headed-money minded approach, it is sad this challenges and disaster will continue. Gas emission into the atmosphere should at all cost be minimized so as to prevent global warming.
More efforts and regulations ought to be put in place to ensure strict adherence.Work CitedIntergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Climate change 2014: Mitigation of climate change. Vol. 3.
