In today’s generation global warming is a critical issue whereby cause and effect is observed in every part of the earth. In addition, prevention in this situation is very important and it is everyone’s responsibility to discuss and implement this.
Global warming is caused by many factors one of these is deforestation where trees are being destroyed and cut down by people even though they know its effects to the environment. Next, carbon pollution that comes from fumes of vehicles and from burning of materials such as papers and plastics. The carbon emitted from these will be accumulated and eventually thickens the ozone layer of the earth which in return makes the environment hotter than the usual heat experience in the past. This event can also lead to disasters like further drought and scarcity of water in any parts of the world especially to the developing countries. It can also contribute to disease such as skin illness due to the severity of heat.
In order to prevent the further situation that the global community is facing it will come first from an individual because one can make a difference. For instance, a single person is planting trees in his community but one knows that it takes time to produce a vast number of planted trees. That individual can influence his fellow citizens to plant so in return manpower is achieve which resulted to many trees. This method can guide the government because it holds the political power of a country.
The government has a role to implement rules and regulations to prevent the further effects of global warming whereby programs can be planned and developed such as clean air act. Clean air act is implemented around the globe wherein the aim is to decrease the consumption of carbon pollution and to solve the problem in using wind and water power like wind mill or hydro power plant that produces lower emission of carbon. Another thing is to implement “no to illegal cutting of trees” in order to preserve mountains that helps citizens in disasters and severe heat.
In conclusion, it is not just the government or an individual to prevent global warming but it is everyone’s duty to control the deteriorating effects of this issue around the world.
