The recent frequency of heat waves, intense tropical storms, and natural disasters has also been partially attributed to trends in global climate change.
Greenhouse gases are comprised of many elements and compounds, but Carbon Dioxide is often used as a proxy for these elements in calculations and discussions related to carbon footprints.
Almost every activity that occurs in the course of a single day has some impact on the environment.
These technologies also help by producing less methane in the process of providing energy.
On the whole, these sources of energy are more sustainable and less harmful to the planet.
Melting of ice caps, permafrost, and the overall warming of the world cause major problems all over; these problems affect everyone everywhere.
Melting permafrost causes some of the most damage of any other factor that global warming affects.
More information about carbon footprints can be found by reading: Hertwich, Edgar G., and Glen P. “Carbon Footprint of Nations: A Global, Trade-Linked Analysis.” Environmental Science & Technology vol.
Global warming is effecting all of the world today and the affect is not a good one.
Holes in the ozone allow harmful ultraviolet rays (that are usually deflected by the ozone layer) to make their way to lower levels of the atmosphere.
Greenhouse gases absorb and give off radiation from the UV rays, contributing to extreme temperature conditions.
