Global warming is driving us crazy. Why? Let’s see if we know enough about the subject
1️⃣ What causes global warming?
Changes in rainfall patterns and changes in the frequency of extreme weather events are causing Global warming
2️⃣ What is global warming and the greenhouse effect?
The greenhouse effect is the process by which radiation from a planet’s atmosphere warms the planet’s surface to a temperature above what it would be without this atmosphere.
3️⃣ What are the effects of climate change in the environment?
As the climate warms, it changes the nature of global rainfall, evaporation, snow, stream flow and other factors that affect water supply and quality. Specific impacts include: Warmer water temperatures affect water quality and accelerate water pollution.
4️⃣ WHO report on global warming?
The Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C was published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change on 8 October 2018. The report, approved in Incheon, South Korea, includes over 6,000 scientific references, and was prepared by 91 authors from 40 countries.
5️⃣ Which gas causes global warming?
A greenhouse gas that absorbs and emits radiant energy within the thermal infrared range. Greenhouse gases cause the greenhouse effect.
6️⃣ How are we destroying the ozone layer?
Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and other halogenated ozone depleting substances (ODS) are mainly responsible for man-made chemical ozone depletion. The total amount of effective halogens (chlorine and bromine) in the stratosphere can be calculated and are known as the equivalent effective stratospheric chlorine (EESC).
7️⃣ What are the 6 factors that affect climate?
- Latitude. Depending on how close or how far it is to the equator
- Ocean currents. Certain ocean currents have different temperatures.
- Wind and air masses. Heated ground causes air to rise which results in lower air pressure
- Nearness to water
These were 7 quality pieces of information, we hope you will find them below!
