Abstract

Global warming is the most popular topic among modern scholars. Various studies have shown environmental changes on an unprecedented scale in human activity. Rising sea levels and mass extinction are typical examples. We conducted the research mainly focusing on the elements, causes, and solutions to the risk of global warming in our lives and environment. The recent and historical data for last 50 years was collected and analyzed from different regions of the worldAfrica, Europe, The Americas, Australia and Asia and descriptive statistics were compared and contrasted at the continent level. The causes and damages caused by global warming in each of these regions on our planet was also explored and compared among different continents. The results indicated significant variations in the effects of global warming caused by deforestation, industrialization, urban development, and land use change. The results suggested the needs for minimizing burning fossil fuel and developing more renewable energy sources (solar or wind), climate mitigation and adaptation strategies, reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases especially carbon dioxide (CO2).

The Causes and Effects of Global Warming

Global warming is the most popular topic among modern scholars. Various studies have shown environmental changes on an unprecedented scale in human activity. Rising sea levels and mass extinction are typical examples. We conducted the research mainly focusing on the elements, causes, and solutions to the risk of global warming in our lives and environment. The recent and historical data for last 50 years was collected and analyzed from different regions of the worldAfrica, Europe, The Americas, Australia and Asia and descriptive statistics were compared and contrasted at the continent level. The causes and damages caused by global warming in each of these regions on our planet was also explored and compared among different continents. The results indicated significant variations in the effects of global warming caused by deforestation, industrialization, urban development, and land use change. The results suggested the needs for minimizing burning fossil fuel and developing more renewable energy sources (solar or wind), climate mitigation and adaptation strategies, reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases especially carbon dioxide (CO2).
