Climate change

The Department of Agriculture, Food and Environment has claimed that : “the study of climate is a complex field of research and rapidly evolving, due to the many factors involved. The Earth’s climate has never been static. As a result of alterations in energy balance, is subject to variations on all time scales from decades to thousands and millions of years.  Furthermore this department has defined the climate change as: Climate change calls global climate change on Earth. Is due to natural causes and the action of man and occur at very different time scales and for all climatic parameters: temperature, precipitation, cloudiness, etc.. The term “greenhouse effect” refers to is the retention of the sun’s heat in the Earth’s atmosphere by a layer of gases in the atmosphere. Without them life as we know it would not be possible, since the planet would be too cold. These gases include carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide and methane, which are released by industry, agriculture and fossil fuel combustion. The industrialized world has ensured that the concentration of these gases has increased 30% since the last century, when, without human action, nature took care to balance emissions. “

As a Result, in 2001 the Third Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) highlighted “the evidence provided by observations of the physical and biological systems that showed regional changes in climate, particularly increases in temperatures were affecting different systems and in different parts of the globe. Noted, ultimately, you are accumulating much evidence of the existence of climate change and the impacts that flow from it. An average, the temperature has increased about 0.6 ° C in the twentieth century. The sea level has risen 10 to 12 centimeters and researchers believe that this is due to the expansion of oceans becoming warmer.”

ECODES has mentioned that ” The Scientific studies show that the planet will face irreversible human and natural disaster if atmospheric concentrations of CO2 continues above 350 parts per million.

“The 4th Report of the IPCC, Intergovernmental Group of scientific experts on Climate Change published in 2007, states that to ensure climate stability long term is necessary to limit the increase in global temperature below 2 ° C above pre-industrial levels implying back to CO2 concentrations of 350 ppm and ultimately to preindustrial concentrations.”

“Howerver, for this it is necessary that industrialized countries reduce their 2020 emissions of greenhouse gases by 40% below 1990 levels and at least 85% by 2050. And that developing countries adopt clean technologies to developing a detached increased emissions.”

In conlusion, if we do not contribute in reducing the emissions of CO2 and Greenhouse gasses then we will be living in a world with lack of water, energy, etc….. Besides, “Scientific American have published a Report entitled 10 Solutions for Climate Change. Ten possibilities for staving off catastrophic climate change in which is intended to “show the way to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases blamed for global warming today. “

1 -. “Giving up fossil fuels to reduce emissions ..”
2 -. “Update infrastructure to avoid wasting energy ..”
3 -. “Zoom workers work to reduce travel.”
4 -. “Consume less and buy” green “products.”
5 -. “Being more efficient use of energy.”
6 -. “Feeding ourselves better and be … So vegetarians will be issued less CO2 and methane?.”
7 -. “Stopping deforestation.”
8 -. “Not leave appliances on stand-by.”
9 -. ‘One child per couple, to stop population growth. “
10 -. “Using biofuels.”
