Climate Change as a result of human activities, carbon dioxide emissions have increased, leading to higher temperatures. Extreme weather conditions and melting polar ice are some of the possible consequences.
What is Climate Change all about? The average ground temperature is around 15C, but in the past it was much higher and lower. Natural fluctuations coincide with the climate, but scientists are finding that temperatures are now rising faster than many times.
The world has been getting warmer. This is due to the greenhouse gas effect, which describes how the Earth’s atmosphere captures some of the solar energy. Greenhouse gases take in solar energy that is radiated back into space from the Earth’s surface and radiated in all directions. It warms the lower atmosphere and the surface of the planet. Without this effect the Earth 30C would be colder and hostile to life.
Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution around 1750, CO2 levels have increased by more than 30%. The concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere is higher than ever in at least 800,000 years. Other greenhouse gases, such as methane and nitrous oxide, are also emitted as a result of human activities, but are smaller than carbon dioxide.
Climate change, as a result of changes in the atmosphere during the Earth’s climate, as well as the interaction between the atmosphere and other geological, chemical, biological and geographical factors of the Earth’s system.
The atmosphere is a dynamic fluid in constant movement. Its physical properties, speed and direction of movement are some of the many factors, including solar radiation, geographic location of continents, ocean currents, location and orientation of mountain ranges, atmosphere chemistry and the vegetation that grows on the surface of the earth. All of these factors change over time. Some factors, such as the distribution of heat in the ocean, the chemistry of the atmosphere, and terrestrial plants, change very quickly. Others, such as the location of continents and the height of ridges, change over a very long period of time. Therefore, the climate resulting from the physical properties and movement of the atmosphere is different over time.
Climate is often vaguely defined as the average weather for a given place, along with characteristics such as temperature, precipitation, humidity, and wind.
It is now the time to take stiff action towards the atrocities of climate change vitalities and spread awareness among the masses to come in the forefront to make our nature preserve and persevere. It is nature which takes care of the whole ecosystem and creates the balance between the atmosphere.
Climate change and its study, the contribution of these factors is a vital and emerging area of study.
Afforestation and the perseverance of nature is one of the basic steps to go ahead with the change.
Taking note of the above changes, IIMT COLLEGE OF POLYTECHNIC has been conducting an awareness programme including plant sapling programmes to raise the awareness in order to save the future generation for the better and resilient planet Earth!
