Causes and Consequences of Global Warming

Scientists almost proved that more greenhouse gases appeared in the atmosphere after the industrial revolution and with the development of the technology. The heating effect is dangerous for human life, moreover, global warming causes many other problems such as rising sea level, undesirable change of climate, etc. The given paper will discuss the potential causes and consequences of global warming and try to find possible solutions.
Actually, some scientists do not believe in global warming. Some people consider it to be a myth. In order to define if it is really a myth or a real phenomenon, it is important to implement scientific research. Moreover, according to some researchers, global warming is a phenomenon that was not caused by the industrial revolution as it was met before: Global warming is not a 20th-century phenomenon. It has, in fact, occurred in the past more than once, along with periods of extreme cold known as the ice ages. With so much written and reported about global warming, sometimes it’s difficult to detect which is fact and which is just part of scientific scare tactics (Fiset).
There are indicators, which are used by scientists to control the climate shift, the main of them are temperature and sea levels. Researches made certain conclusions about the changes in temperature during the last 1,000 years. The 20th century is characterized by the frustration of temperature. Between the1960-1970s the earth underwent the period of cooling, but still, in general, the average temperature increased. The temperature is increasing by 0.1-0.2 oC every ten years. Keeping planetary warming below two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) would, it was thought, avoid such perils as catastrophic sea-level rise and searing droughts. Staying below two degrees C would require limiting the level of heat-trapping carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to 450 parts per million (ppm), up from today’s 395 ppm and the preindustrial era’s 280 ppm (Carey).
