The current evidence seems to support that the effects of the industrial revolution have caused the natural process to speed up dramatically. There is no way to stop global warming, but we can find ways to slow its current process.
- Industry burns fossil fuels, particularly coal, emitting sulphur dioxide
- Vehicles from all kinds of transport release nitrogen oxides
- Winds may carry these pollutants in any direction
- Clouds and falling rain absorb these pollutants and the rain falls as a mild acid
- This damages soils, lakes, fish stocks and agriculture as well as corroding metal and damages buildings.
It will cause flooding in some coastal areas and result in more powerful storms. It will destroy some farm land and inhabitable areas while opening up some new ones forcing migration.
How detrimental these effects really are is up for debate. For instance to avoid flooding we could just move inland or build better flood control.
If scientists do not find a way to prevent global disasters from happening we will be severely devastated,scientists are working on making our earth more green and not you so much oil so there is less pollution.
Most of us are unaware of the massive, continual movement of our oceans' water. It's a very very important thing. It allows many millions of us to live where we would have great difficulty living otherwise. There's a conveyor belt or river of water in our planet's oceans that moves the cold water to the deepest areas which brings warmer water to places, helping those places stay in moderate, livable, temperature ranges. It ALSO allows the trillions of krill to reproduce and feed the small and larger fish. If the krill all die, so will many many fish!
Both will suffer the immediate effects first; both of the Predator and the Prey.
No, rivers will flood at low-lying area near their mouths, where the sea levels will rise. The height of river water depends on the rainfall received into the watershed. If sea level rises, that will have no effect on flow rate upstream.
The burning of fossil fuel (coal, oil and natural gas), as well as deforestation.
Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere remained relatively constant in the range 260-280 parts per million (ppm) over long periods before the Industrial Revolution, falling as low as 180 ppm during periods associated with the Ice Ages, but never rising above 280 pp.
Since the Industrial Revolution, and particularly since about 1970. carbon dioxide levels have risen rapidly, to reach their current level of over 390 ppm. This is the result of human activity, mainly from burning fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas) but also from deforestation and cement manufacture.
Almost every reputable scientist ties the increase in man made (or generated) carbon dioxide to the increased retention of heat in the Earth's atmosphere which is causing accelerated climate change.
