The main reason behind the global warming is that the carbon dioxide presents in the sir traps the Sun’s heat and these results in the increase in temperature of the Earth. The increase in temperature causes the ice at the poles to melt. The main reason of carbon dioxide increasing in the atmosphere is pollution. The main cause of increasing pollution is the air population. The living standards have increased and every household owns vehicle. The number of vehicle being used is high and is directly contributing in increase of pollution. There are no proper and short term measures available (Cox et al, 2000). The pace of the population is increasing so it is not far when there would be no snow left at the poles. Many of the low lying islands would drown in the sea and the coming generation might not know their names as well. With increase in pollution, the internal temperature of earth is bound to increase which would further contribute to global warming. Another reason for the increase in global warming is the greenhouse effect. The farmers put an arrangement known as greenhouse which traps the heat of the sun and is used in raising the plants. This set up does not allow the sun’s heat to escape from the green house, hence increasing the earth’s temperature.
