WHY...my big questions is...."WHY is it difficult to understand....that it is indeed us humans who have accelerated the global warming....and still contributing to it?"
One of the threads asked for a scientific opinion..so being a budding environmental scientist...let me just try explaining.
There are several ways in which we humans have (and are still) contributing to the global climate change (a.k.a global warming).
But...lemme just explain one...
Now I hope all here accept the fact that Carbon...in most of its form..is a greenhouse gas...and that the more it is in the atmosphere...greater will be the warming.
Nature has been, over a period of several centuries...been trapping the atmospheric CO2 and has put it...deep under the earth's crust! This, it has been doing for ages....in the form of green plants...that nature stores in the earth's crust......and decreases the CO2 concentration of the atmosphere and of the environment.
Now...man, in the last few years...has discovered this dumped away CO2.....found their use as "fossil fuels"...and has been burning it like hell....in the process....returning all of the CO2 back to the atmoshphere.
Clearly...man is undoing nature's work of sequestring away Carbon......which is now entering back into the environment at a HUGE rate......and thus the accelerated Global Warming.
Now..which part of this did not make sense to anyone...plz point out.
Also..this is just one of the ways in which human interference is accelerating the warming.
