The threat of global climate change promises to be the single most pressing environmental issue as the world enters the 21st Century. Increasingly, it becomes incumbent upon decision-makers from a wide array of backgrounds to gain a sound understanding of the fundamentals of the climate change issue and how it relates to their areas of responsibility. The purpose of this chapter is to review the main elements of the climate change problem and the implications for Bangladesh in order to highlight the key scientific and policy issues involved.

Global warming , the phenomenon of increasing average air temperatures near the surface of Earth over the past one to two centuries. Increases in greenhouse gases —i. Continued global warming is expected to impact everything from energy use to water availability to crop productivity throughout the world. Poor countries and communities with limited abilities to adapt to these changes are expected to suffer disproportionately. Global warming is already being associated with increases in the incidence of severe and extreme weather, heavy flooding , and wildfires —phenomena that threaten homes, dams, transportation networks, and other facets of human infrastructure. Temperature increases related to global warming have been the most pronounced at the poles, where they often make the difference between frozen and melted ice. Polar bears rely on small gaps in the ice to hunt their prey.

Despite the great uncertainties, greenhouse warming is a potential threat sufficient to justify action now. Some current actions could reduce the speed and magnitude of greenhouse warming; others could prepare people and natural systems of plants and animals for future adjustments to the conditions likely to accompany greenhouse warming. There are a number of mitigation and adaptation options available to the United States.
NASA is a world leader in climate studies and Earth science. While its role is not to set climate policy or prescribe particular responses or solutions to climate change, its purview does include providing the robust scientific data needed to understand climate change. NASA then makes this information available to the global community — the public, policy- and decision-makers and scientific and planning agencies around the world. Climate change is one of the most complex issues facing us today. It involves many dimensions — science, economics, society, politics and moral and ethical questions — and is a global problem, felt on local scales, that will be around for decades and centuries to come. Carbon dioxide, the heat-trapping greenhouse gas that has driven recent global warming, lingers in the atmosphere for hundreds of years, and the planet especially the oceans takes a while to respond to warming. So even if we stopped emitting all greenhouse gases today, global warming and climate change will continue to affect future generations.

This activity by the Royal Society of Chemistry looks at the greenhouse gas effect on climate change taking into account the increase in temperature and carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere. Also included is a study of some of the other gases which contribute to the greenhouse effect and a description of how molecules interact with radiation. This lesson should take about four hours of class time. It includes material for lectures about climate change and greenhouse gases, including descriptions and figures. The greenhouse effect and global warming This PDF covers the greenhouse effect from a chemical perspective by looking at how molecules interact with IR radiation.
Keywords: Global warming, greenhouse effect, greenhouse gas, climate greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and results from models using 35 different emission scenarios project that the global average.
What is the difference between global warming and climate change?
By Agnieszka Biskup. May 7, at pm. As they hit the soil and surface waters, those rays release much of their energy as heat. Some of the heat then radiates back out into space. However, certain gases in our atmosphere, such as carbon dioxide, methane and water vapor, work like a blanket to retain much of that heat.
About 1. This is not only harmful to the environment; it can also lead to premature deaths for millions of people, especially women and children. By , global energy demand is projected to grow by more than 50 percent, and even faster in developing countries.
Сьюзан, чуть подтолкнув, усадила его на место. - Нет! - рявкнула. - Пойду я! - Ее тон говорил о том, что возражений она не потерпит. Стратмор закрыл лицо руками. - Хорошо. Это на нижнем этаже. Возле фреоновых помп.
