You all know that why these tress are important for us and what is global warming but maybe you don’t know the fact of global warming I am going to tell you the basic facts of global warming-
Global warming is the increase of Earth’s average surface temperature due to greenhouse gases that collect in the atmosphere like a thickening blanket, trapping the sun’s heat and causing the planet to warm up
- Greenhouse gases keep heat close to the earth’s surface making it livable for humans and animals. However, global warming is happening largely due to an over remittance of these gases and fossil fuels (natural oil, gasoline, coal).
- With the start of industry in the 1700’s, humans began emitting more fossil fuels from coal, oil, and gas to run our cars, trucks, and factories. By driving a “smarter” car, you will not only save on gas, but help prevent global warming.
- There is more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere today than at any point in the last 800,000 years.
- Though Americans make up just 4 percent of the world’s population, we produce 25 percent of the carbon dioxide pollution from fossil-fuel burning — by far the largest share of any country.
Well, I think now you all know why I am talking about the tress and why these type of celebration important for us.
