This abuse of the earth’s resources has led to increased emission rates, trapped heat and an overall increase in the earth’s temperature by 0.85 degree centigrade in the 21 century.
The increase in temperature also has its adverse effects on the world’s climate and has led to irregular weather conditions worldwide.
Since cars omit greenhouse gases, mainly carbon dioxide but also nitrous oxide and methane, electric cars are an excellent alternative, which does not harm the environment, however there are many disadvantages to electric cars.
The main disadvantage is that you have to constantly charge your car, and most of the cars can only drive 50-100 miles before needing a charge.
It is important to note that this article was inspired by the first article — 10 facts on global warming and human health in world climate change — in this three part series.
Over the last two decades, scientist have been involved in a race to prove that the phenomenon known as global warming exists and could drastically affect human life in the coming decades.However the main downside to them is that they cost far more than coal and oil and there are unsightly.Electric vehicles are another way to prevent global warming.In the last 50 years, human activities such as excavating the earth, use of fossil fuels and greenhouse emissions have drastically altered the earth’s climate in negative ways.During this period of time, the burning of fossil fuels has released large quantities of carbon dioxide and greenhouse emissions which in turn have trapped heat in the earth’s lower atmosphere thereby affecting our global climate.The discussion of global warming and how to stop it has been an integral part of world politics the past few decades.Greenhouse gases are naturally occurring in the Earth’s atmosphere, and they are needed to keep the Earth at the right temperature for human and animal life to survive.Statistics show that the ravages of global warming and its effects of climate change affects different regions in diverse ways but in total, the earth has witnessed an increase of 0.85 degree centigrade in its general temperature in the last 100 years.These statistics also point out that the increase is set to pass acceptable thresholds by 2030.Due to climate change, rivers and oceans now overflow their banks leading to flooding of farms which are the sources of food and revenue for rural communities.The result has been widespread malnutrition, mosquito population growth, and increase in malaria-related deaths and the spread of waterborne diseases which drastically reduces the quality of life in rural areas.
