Climate change and how it’s caused is a big controversy in the world today. The climate of the plant has been changing over the last few years. The average global temperature today is about 15C.However today climate change is changing at a faster rate than in the past, the earth is getting warmer at a much faster rate.Many scientists believe that this rapid warming of the earth is human-induced and it having serious effects on locations on earth. One big factor of climate change is the greenhouse effect. This is when the energy that earth receives from the sun gets trapped in the atmosphere, because of the fossil fuels that are being used and then being released into the atmosphere. One of the major effects of climate change is that the earth is warming at a faster rate but it was one of many effects. One of the major places that are being affected by climate change is the Arctic. Due to the issue of climate change the Arctic cap is decreasing a concerning rate. From 1953-2006 the ice in the Arctic decreased at a rate of 7.8% per decade. Between 1979-2006 that went up to a rate of about 9.1% each decade, and as of 2014 the decline rate increased dramatically, with a rate of about 13.3% per decade. We are causing part of the earth to slowly melt away because we are not taking climate change as serious as it needs to be which is causing part of our earth to slowly melt away. Furthermore, because climate change is causing the Arctic caps to melt, that results in rising sea levels and the oceans start to get warmer, and the warmer the ocean the more detrimental it is to the ocean environment. It also becomes detrimental to the roughly 1 billion people that rely on the ocean on their source of protein. In the last century, sea levels have risen 6.7 inches and have nearly doubled that in about the last decade. However there are some organizations that are working to help with the issue of climate change and how much fossil fuel they burn. Some big organizations like Google and Apple are changing what they are using as their source of energy. They have started to use more renewable energy such as windmills and solar panels. Also there is a organization called Greenpeace that is global campaign, who uses peaceful protest in order to bring awareness to global environmental problems and ways that we can solve them to have a more green future.
