Small measurable changes in global and regional climate patterns can be explained as climate change

Anthropogenic climate change

Environment

Different activities performed by humans that can affect climate can be considered Anthropogenic climate change.

Environment is anything that surrounds us. It is consists of both living and non-living things in environment.

Biodiversity

Livestock Industries

Biodiversity can be explained as enormous range of life on earth. Biodiversity also can be explained as a region or ecosystem that is consists of different living and non-living organism,

Livestock industry can be explained as organizations that are working on dairy products and meat. Livestock industry is responsible for emitting more greenhouse gases.

Summary

This is most important to evaluate the impact of different factors that are reason for increment in the temperature of earth atmosphere. There are different technologies are currently used by scientists to analyse the human activities that can help them predict change in climate change. Also, there is range of measures are used by scientists to evaluate the impact of human activities on the climate change and global warming. Along with the human factor, there are some natural factors also used by scientists to evaluate their impact on climate change. Ethical and social factors can be improved to make people aware of their responsibility related to the climate change and global warming. This is also important to analyse several industries that are mainly responsible for emitting greenhouse gases. Range of human factors and natural factors can be considered to develop effective practices that can help to overcome issues related to climate change and global warming.

Task 5

Write your draft Essay Introduction:

Climate change on earth is normally related to the change in the weather conditions on earth and global warming. Weather change and global warming are major aspects of climate change on earth. Climate change is wider perspective that is consists of various elements that are needed to be understood to evaluate the role of different factors on climate change. Climate change is considered as average change in the weather pattern and weather situations on earth for long term. These long term changes in weather pattern are considered as climate change. Both natural and human factors can cause change in climate conditions. This is most important to analyse the change in the weather pattern and situations to ensure the survival of human being in future. This study will be providing brief analysis of climate change in atmosphere of earth. Impact of climate change will be evaluated on different aspects that are important for life on earth. Impact of human factors on climate change will be compared to the impact of natural factor on the climate situations. Different approaches also will be evaluated in report that can help to prevent change in the climate situations.

Task 6

Write a draft paragraph in support of your argument:

 

Global warming is considered one of major aspect of climate change. Major aspect that is visible in case of climate change is global warming. Global warming can be explained as average change in temperature on global level. Phenomenon of global warming is explained as increase in the temperature of atmosphere due to infrared radiation that is emitted by greenhouse gases in environment. Role of Greenhouse gases is crucial in concept of global warming. Gases like Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, and CFC are present in atmosphere of earth. These gases absorbs the radiation of sun and emits infrared radiation that cause increase in atmosphere of earth. This change in temperature of earth atmosphere can be explained as global warming. Carbon Dioxide and Carbon Mono Oxide are major gases in category of greenhouse gases that are majorly produced by humans from industrial activities and other practices. Impact of global warming is of catastrophic level for living organism on earth that includes all animals, plants, and human. Global warming and change in weather pattern are considered in climate change. Both types of changes is visible and measurable. These changes can be measured to evaluate their impact on future changes in atmosphere and weather patterns on earth. It is most important to analyse the impact of climate change on atmosphere to assess its impact on various factors that are related to living organism on earth.

The major influence of climate change is on temperature, water, human health, Agriculture, Ecosystem and Ocean level. These are major aspects that must be considered in the study of climate change to ensure the survival of human and another organism on earth. Increase in temperature is most crucial in case of survival on earth. Increase in temperature is affecting the life on earth. Many species on earth are near extinction due to rise in the temperature. Different marine species are also in danger due to change in the temperature of oceans. Increase in temperature also has affected plants. Because of high and change in temperature has made situations difficult for plants, animals, and human being.

Change in the weather conditions is also most important to consider. Unpredictable changes in atmosphere have affected the weather patterns on earth surface. Some places on earth are continuously facing drought situation and some places are facing issue of flood and heavy continuous rain. Water is basic need of most living organism on earth. Due to climate change, the availability of water is different in different places. This difference is affecting life of people, vegetation, and animals. In different areas people and animals o not have enough water for daily use.

Temperature change is also most crucial. For example, polar bear is facing major difficulties in survival due to catastrophic temperature changes. Temperature change also has affected the marine life. Temperature rise also has affected the ocean level. With continuous increase in global temperature is melting glaciers and it is increasing sea level. This increment in the sea level is causing danger to different cities on different continents. Venice is one of the cities that is facing this issue. Agriculture activities are also affected by climate changes. Unpredictable weather conditions are affecting agriculture activities. These uncertain weather changes are affecting the ability of farmers to meet market demand.

Different factors are causing climate change on earth. This is most important to analyse human factors to evaluate their impact on climate. Major human factors that are crucial for climate change are- deforestation, industrialization, Urbanization, Fossil fuel use, and poor waste management. These are major human factors that are affecting environment of the earth.

Deforestation is major factor that is reason for climate change and global warming. Trees and plants can absorb carbon Dioxide and it can reduce the level of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Deforestation has increased the level of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Higher level of greenhouses gases in the atmosphere is increasing heat that is produced by infrared rays. This is major reason for increase in temperature on earth. Urbanization is other factor that is causing climate changes. With urbanization and industrialization, level of air pollution is continuously increasing. Factors like greenhouse gases, aerosol particles, and heat produced by industries are affecting natural balance. This unbalance situation is major reason for climate change on earth. Uncontrolled Fossil Fuel Use is also considered as reason of increase in temperature of atmosphere. Industries that are working dairy products and meat products are major producer of CO2. These industries are known as livestock industries. Fossil fuel produces carbon Dioxide in combustion process. Higher use of fossil fuel increases amount of Carbon Dioxide in environment. This is how higher use of fossil fuel can increase amount of greenhouse gases present in atmosphere. Other factors that should be considered for climate change is Poor Waste Management processes. Poor waste management approaches increase the amount of methane gas in air. The decomposition of waste material produces methane gas and it is one of greenhouse gas that causes global warming. This is how different human factors affect natural balance on earth and causes climate change.

Write a draft paragraph against the support of your argument:

 

Some natural factors also play crucial role in climate change. For example ocean currents, volcanic eruption, forest fire, and solar radiation are major example of natural factors that are reason for climate change. These factors are completely natural and these factors are not connected to any of human activities. Ocean currents are major reason for change in sea temperature. Ocean currents are connected on global level and these currents can move in both vertical and horizontal directions. Oceans currents are driven by wind, difference in density and rotation of earth. This interconnected network of ocean current increases temperature of oceans. Solar radiation is major natural factor that causes increase in temperature on earth. Different nuclear activities on the sun produces major radiations, and this radiation can cause increase the temperature of earth atmosphere. Volcanic eruptions also can cause change in climate. Volcanic eruption activities produces gases like, CO2, Methane, and Carbon Mono Oxide. These gases are considered as greenhouse gases and small aerosol particles that are produced in Volcanic eruption can cause air pollution. It can cause acid rain Due to production of sulphur in volcanic eruption process. Acid rain causes water pollution, which is not good for environment and climate conditions. Forest fire is also one of reason for climate change. On large level, forest fire can produce major heat that can develop spike in local or regional temperature. This Spike in the temperature can develop long-term impact on climate conditions. Gases that are produced in forest fire increases the layer of greenhouse gases in atmosphere. This is how forest fire can cause change in climate conditions.

Task 7

Write your draft essay Conclusion:

From the information collected in research process, it can be concluded that climate change is major challenge for survival of living organism on earth. Climate change is affecting ecosystem of earth in different ways. Influence of climate change activities also has been evaluated or different important factors which are important for survival of plants, animals and marine animals and human on earth. Impact of climate change has been analysed in report. Two types of factors are reason for climate change in atmosphere of earth. These factors are natural and human. Both factors must be analysed to prevent climate change and prevent catastrophic changes on earth. Major human factors that are analysed in study are- industrialization, urbanization, deforestation, and Air Pollution. From above study, it can be concluded that human factors are causing more damage to the balanced conditions on earth. For example, greenhouses gases produced from human factors are reason for change in temperature on earth. As compared to natural factors, it has been identified that impact of human factor is more crucial on climate situations.

There are some processes can be used to prevent climate change. For example, sustainable approach in industries can help to reduce production of greenhouse gases. Effective waste management approach can help the business organizations to reduce impact on environment and Biodiversity of earth. Balanced use of natural resources also can help to reduce impact on climate situations. Use of renewable energy sources also can help to reduce production of greenhouse gases and it can help to prevent further change in the average temperature on earth. This is how different approaches can be used to reduce the impact of human factors and activities on climate change.
