Conquering The Problem of Greenhouse Gases October 11, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — jenniferlyn @ 6:01 pm

Greenhouse gases have been a controversial issue for a long time, as well as what we should do about the rising problem of depleting ozone.  Greenhouse gases are parts of the atmosphere that contribute to the greenhouse effect. The natural component of the greenhouse effect is necessary for Earth to be habitable. Some greenhouse gases occur naturally in the atmosphere, while others result from human activities such as burning of fossil fuels. Greenhouse gases include water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone. CFCs are greenhouse gases that are regulated by the Montreal Protocol, which was motivated by CFCs’ contribution to ozone depletion rather than by their contribution to global warming. Ozone depletion plays only a small part in greenhouse warming. 

I believe that we need to find a solution to the problem of greenhouse gases very quickly, because at the rate that the levels of these gases are increasing in our atmosphere our earth will soon be almost uninhabitable.  With the increase in greenhouse gases we are slowly killing our rainforests and animals.  Greenhouse gases are also causing global warming and global warming leads to many problems.  With increasing emissions coming from the extra burning of fossil fuels we are contributing more and more to the problem of greenhouse gases.  I think we need to find other energy and fuel sources to try to slow down, if not stop the problem of greenhouse gases and global warming.

    It seems to be difficult for people to respond to longterm problems; thus little gets done to prevent global warming. Perhaps when the current school-aged generation, which has grown up believing in and fearing global warming, becomes adults more will be accomplished. (25/25)
