Greenhouse effect is a familiar word, but it is also a dangerous word, greenhouse effect has a great negative influence on the earth's environment. However, how can the greenhouse effect reduce, is the most important topic in this essay. As NOAA Research said in June, 4 2004, the greenhouse effect is an increase in the average temperature of the Earth. It happens because certain gases absorb infrared heat that would normally be radiated into space. Since carbon dioxide absorbs this heat, the more carbon dioxide there is in the atmosphere, the warmer the air will be. If the air gets too hot, the balance of life will be upset. Many kinds of plants and animals will die. The food chain also could be upset. This would cause many serious problems worldwide. In addition, there will be mentioned three main ways to solve this serious problem——reduce the carbon dioxide footprint by ourselves, limited the energy used by government and set a policy of planting trees.
A recent study from BBC Weather Centre shows that the ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica are melting faster than the snow is replacing the mass. Land glaciers will continue to melt over the coming century which will increase the level of the seas.In their 4th Report the IPCC predict a sea level rise of 0.18-0.38m increase by 2100 in the most optimistic situation and 0.26-0.59m in the most pessimistic. Another study from Marianne Lavelle found that Global temperatures will increase on average by 8 degrees Celsius over preindustrial levels by 2300 if all of Earth’s fossil fuel resources are burned. In the Arctic, average temperatures would rise by 17 degrees Celsius. The later study from Devin Powell talks about that warming ocean waters could make finding food increasingly difficult for the little penguin. Because their prey is sensitive to heat.
Now, the biggest problem is that how to reduce greenhouse effect and greenhouse gas emissions. Greenhouse effect has already brought serious problems to the environment even the whole world. The first way to reduce greenhouse effect is which reduce our carbon footprint. If it is possible, write down your carbon footprint everyday, like the fuel used by car and the carbon dioxide it will produce. By comparing the footprint, we can reduce the carbon dioxide emissions little by little. However, it is a little bit difficult for us to do it, it is hard to measure the carbon dioxide exactly used by us everyday and it will cost a long time to do it. It also need patient which is one of the most important reasons for people can’t do it well. The second way is that used energy need to be limited by government. While it is difficult to reduce the footprint by ourselves, the government will help more. Licensing restrictions is a good way to reduce the one of the main greenhouse gas——carbon dioxide. And now, we need to pay for the plastic bag, it is also a good way to tell people that bring their own bags to the supermarkets, to reduce the carbon dioxide which comes from burning the plastic bags. Nevertheless, now carbon is one of the main flue, limit the use of carbon is also difficult.The last way to reduce the greenhouse effect is to plant trees and other plants. Plants can absorb a big part of the carbon dioxide which from the pollution. Also the plants can not only decrease the amount of carbon dioxide, but also can produce the oxygen. Spend time to plant trees seemed a little bit impossible, if the government could plant more trees but not the individual person, it is better.
Planting trees is the best way to reduce the greenhouse effect. Because it is harmless and easy to do it. It is not only can reduce the carbon emissions bu also can clean up the air to produce the fresh air. In addition, it can produce more oxygen too. One of the advantages for human is that we can relax our eyes when we look at the green plants.
Greenhouse effect is a serious problem absolutely, it is harmful to the ecosystem, but we could still find ways to solve it. Protect the earth, from ourselves from now on, if we wait until that this problem bring us a irreversible result, it was too late. Reducing the greenhouse effect has no time to delay, it is not the matter of the world or the government, it is the matter of ourselves.
