Climate Change Crisis



What is climate change?

Climate change is when changes in Earth's climate system start to develop new weather patterns that last for some time. The climate system is made of five interacting parts, the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, biosphere and lithosphere. It can increase/decrease temperature, oceans, sea levels and seasons. This is due to human activity such as factories, agriculture (farming and rearing of animals), greenhouse gases caused by vehicles, factories and not being countered because of reduction of trees.

What are greenhouse gases?

Greenhouse gases are gases absorbs and release radiant energy within the thermal infrared range. Greenhouse gases in Earth's atmosphere are made of water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and ozone. This traps heat then lets go of it meaning the Ozone layer would become damaged and let in more UV rays onto earth.

How can we stop climate change?

To stop climate change we must do a rapid change on what we do. We should release less gases into the atmosphere by cutting down less trees as this would help reduce greenhouse gases because trees store these gases and in exchange it releases oxygen. Also we can use alternatives for burning fuel to create electricity, instead we could place solar panels onto selected building, solar panels absorbs the sun's energy and turns it into electricity. Another change we can do is to plant trees next to factories to store those greenhouse gases and release oxygen and reduce it in its tracks. One more way to stop climate change is ban fossil fuels to become burnt and to invent new technology which could do things like plant and water trees, measure the release of gases leaving certain manufacturing sites.

What can be the impact of climate change?

It can cause more cyclones to become increasingly common and lethal. Also more wild fires can occur which could be more devasting than previous ones. Earth can change environment in an instance which means it would be harder for living creatures to adapt and survive.

Please give some extra ideas on how to stop climate change and tell me what you think about it.
