An increase in the Earth’s temperature is called Global warming. This includes an increase in air temperature and ocean temperature. This poses a great threat to biodiversity. Global warming is mainly caused by air pollutants that trap the sun’s heat, thus increasing the world’s overall temperature.
However, there is something everyone can do to help. Here are some steps through with you can prevent global warming.
1. One of the simplest things you can do to slow down the process of global warming is by altering your home’s light. You can try changing them to compact fluorescent bulbs, as they will last longer and conserve energy too.
2. Turn off all appliances which you are not using currently. For example, turn off your computer if you are not using it, as many of us have a bad habit of just keeping it on. Keep your television off if you are not watching it. You can also unplug them to save energy.
3. Cars are a big source of carbon emission as they emit a lot of harmful chemicals in the air that increase global warming. Thus try car pooling or walking instead of going by car. Ride a bike if you can. It will help you save gas and money, and you will get healthier by exercising!
4. One of the best ways to prevent global warming is by planting lots of trees. We cannot totally eradicate the carbon emissions, but we can cut down its effects by planting more trees. Trees help absorb carbon dioxide, thus reducing global warming. You can also help by using recycled paper, plastic, glass, etc.
