Human Activities must not be considered as a Substantial Cause of Global Climate Change
‘’Our world is always changing,
From ocean depths to mountain peaks,
Mother Nature moves and speaks.
While telling stories of our past
She tries to teach us how to last.’’
Change- the only thing in the universe that is constant. Starting from the journey of childhood, we are witnessing changes, whether it is about our appearances, lifestyle or about living environment. The words of Phinazee also portray the image of change, specifically in Mother Nature. She conveys her love to the greenery, the beauty of ocean, the openness of mountain peaks and valleys. Sadly, these ...view middle of the document...
The article by Reid & Beaugrand (2012) has also pointed out that there is unequivocal evidence that the world is warming rapidly and very high confidence that the warming is due to human forcing from greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Some experts say that humans contribute to most of the CO2 in the air that causes global warming. CO2 is one the greenhouse gases causing global warming. But it does not mean that dealing with global warming states that people have all got to suddenly stop breathing. Dealing with global warming means humans have to stop wasting the resources they have. For example, if they travel for no reason or whatsoever, that is a waste the concept directly points toward people’s travelling causing greenhouse gas emission. Rise of industrialization has multiplied such kind of waste which consequently increased average global temperature.
On the other hand, there are various natural processes emit large quantities of CO2 into the atmosphere. They also remove it at nearly identical rates. This balance maintained the concentration of CO2 at a stable level for thousands of years prior to the Industrial Revolution. According to Bolin (2001), during the twentieth century, the local heat sources have increased the global mean temperature by about 0.5 degrees Celsius. Altogether, only 1 percent of natural forcing solar radiation is human-induced greenhouse emission. The isotopic composition of carbon in atmospheric CO2 provides a unique “fingerprint” that tells scientists that the lion’s share of the additional CO2 accumulating in the atmosphere is from the burning of fossil fuels. Besides, carbon dioxide is not a pollutant as many claim. Carbon dioxide is good for plant life and is a natural constituent of the atmosphere. During Earth’s long history there has been more and less carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than we see today. In the end, contribution to CO2 emission from a Ferrari car can be considered as Nano percentage to the volume of air and atmosphere. Therefore, considering human travelling responsible for CO2 emission is more or less insignificant than the natural processes that leave out a vast amount if greenhouse gasses.
Another considerable man-made cause of climate change is population that directs to manure and agriculture sector. In this regard, Pachauri stated in 1998 that socio-economic activities along with biogeophysical processes have resulted anthropogenic global warming. Also, the spread of global infectious diseases, this sector now involves complex interactive feedback effects, wide geographical dispersion, and a link with the most pervasive of behavioral patterns. When organic matter is broken down by bacteria under oxygen-starved conditions (anaerobic decomposition) as in rice paddies, methane is produced. The process also takes place in the intestines of herbivorous animals, and with the increase in the amount of concentrated livestock production, the levels of methane released into the atmosphere is...
