1) Is global warming real?
Yes. No matter how many people will tell you and try to convince you that it’s not, it actually is. Its effects cannot be ignored or shrugged off anymore.
2) What is global warming, in the first place?
Global warming is the effect of an increase in the amount of greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere, resulting to changes in the composition of this atmosphere.
3) How can its causes be verified?
There are actually countless ways to be able to verify the effects of global warming. One of the easiest is simple chemistry. You simply have to see and acknowledge how an increased burning of carbon-based products also results to a lot of carbon dioxide emissions, which makes it very verifiably dangerous indeed.
4) Is the human race really going to suffer its consequences?
Definitely. In the same way that the human race is partly to be blamed for global warming, then the human race also stands to suffer the most from generations of wrong choices and poor lifestyles.
The answer to this question is also a big yes. The air gets polluted with all the smoke and smog and all the burning that humans love to produce and do, and too much of these harmful gases then cause global warming. Global warming then has climate change as one of its worst effects.
6) Can the ordinary individual do anything about it?
Well, you can’t change the fact that it’s already here. What you can do is to mitigate its effects. You can do this by choosing better products that are not carbon-based, and by reducing your carbon footprint. For one thing, start walking more. These little choices will then shape a better future for you and for the generations that follow after you.
At the end of the day, you just cannot underestimate the potential of individual choice. There are a lot of things you can do, if only you choose to take that first step.
