Our malpractices just to live luxurious life are hugely altering the environment as well as endangering the lives of people

Global warming is increasing day by day because of the continuous increase in the levels of greenhouse gasses. Such gases have tendency to trap heat from many sources like sun, electricity, burning coal, burning fuels, etc. and prevent them to escape back to the atmosphere. Thus, the collective effect of all the greenhouse gases increases temperature on the earth and gives rise to many dangerous problems. Earlier, the earth was so cool and every natural cycles were going timely however nowadays lots of dramatic fluctuations in the weather, climate, temperature, health, etc. take place. A vast increase in the temperature, sea level, and weather patterns has been seen clearly in last few decades.

All the changes because of the ever increasing global warming are not a coincidence. It is caused by the human activities and technological advancement. A little fluctuation in the level of atmospheric carbon dioxide may cause high level effect on the global temperature. The continuous rise in the percentage of atmospheric carbon dioxide is alarming us by its dangerous effects however we are still ignoring. Increasing need of fossil fuels (such as coal, oil, and gasoline) by the people of industrial civilization is paving the way for rise in carbon dioxide emissions.

Deforestation is also causing increase in the carbon dioxide through decreasing number of plants and exposing soil to the sunlight. Trees are best source to absorb CO2 from the atmosphere however what happen if we finish the main source of reducing CO2 level. Our malpractices just to live luxurious life on daily basis are hugely altering the environment as well as endangering the lives of people in return. A little rise in the level of greenhouse gases may hugely affect the global warming.

The use of a chemical called chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) in the refrigerators, aerosol spray propellants are continuously damaging the ozone layer thus increasing the chance of heat to remain on the earth by preventing them to escape back out to the environmental surface. Destruction of ozone layer increases the incidence of many health disorders and diseases such as skin cancer, respiratory disease, low immunity problems, etc. Global warming is damaging seasonal crops and marine food channel web, etc. It has affected the weather patterns (summer season has increased and winter season has decreased) and climate because of the increasing temperature and heat of the earth atmosphere.
