Bua - Global Warming

Blogger - Global warming
     cause, effect, cure
     Global warming is primarily a problem of too much carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere—which acts as a blanket, trapping heat and warming the planet.
A layer of greenhouse gases – primarily water vapor, and including much smaller amounts
of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide – acts as a thermal blanket for the Earth, absorbing heat and warming the surface to a life-supporting average of 59 degrees Fahrenheit (15 degrees Celsius).

     Some impacts from increasing temperatures are already happening. For example,

  -Ice is melting worldwide, especially at the Earth’s poles. This includes mountain glaciers, ice sheets covering West Antarctica and Greenland, and Arctic sea ice.

      Other effects could happen later this century, if warming continues. For example,

   -Floods and droughts will become more common. Rainfall in Ethiopia, where droughts are already common, could decline by 10 percent over the next 50 years.

Some easy ways to stop global warming!!! (For example)
     - Replace Regular Incandescent Light bulb: Replace regular incandescent light bulb with compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. They consume 70% less energy then ordinary bulbs and have longer lifetime.
      - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Reduce your need to buy new products or use less, resulting in a smaller amount of waste.
      - Turn Off the Lights: If you’re not using a room, there’s no need for the light to be on.
