In our solar system, Venus is the hottest planet, but it's defiantly not the closest to the sun. One would think that the planet closest to the sun would be hottest, but to the surprise of many, this isn’t the case. As a matter of fact, Venus is second closest to the sun, Mercury being the first. The reason to Venus's high temperature is due to the abundant amount of ...

Venus, could this be the earths future

  1. 1. Venus, Could This Be The Earths Future? The importance of alternative energies have been expressed time and time again.Many believe that the greenhouse effect is the cause of global warming, and many dont.In order to better understand the subject, studying other planets in our solar system issomething to be considered. In our solar system, Venus is the hottest planet, but its defiantly not the closest tothe sun. One would think that the planet closest to the sun would be hottest, but to thesurprise of many, this isn’t the case. As a matter of fact, Venus is second closest to thesun, Mercury being the first. The reason to Venuss high temperature is due to theabundant amount of greenhouse gases found on the planet. The sun gives off radiation, and these rays are absorbed by Venus. Usually, a fairamount of these sun rays would be deflected and sent back out into space. Due toVenuss dense atmosphere, many of the these rays are trapped, and thus causing theplanet to warmup (global warming, but on Venus). The vast amounts of Carbondioxide and acid in the Venuss atmosphere act almost as mirrors that keep in solar rays.Temperatures on Venus can reach up to 870 degrees F making it impossible for any lifeon earth to survive, well, except some sorts of bacteria. Greenhouse gases are caused by the burning of fossil fuels, deforesting,automobile exhausts, and the burning of wood. These actions release excessive carbon,and methane, and as a result they, slowly reduce the amount of heat the Earth is able todeflect. So basically, if we continue to burn fossil fuels, cut down forests, and rely on dirtyenergy solutions, the earth may end up resembling Venus. Earth can never become ashot as Venus due to the difference in solar position, but it may become hot enough todiscourage any life on earth. Higher temperatures means that we run a risk of waterevaporating from our planet, which will result in less plants, which means less oxygen,which means less forms of life. In the worst situation, earth will become an inhabitablewaste land. Venus is a good example as to the future of our planet unless actions are taken, wecan fairly easily stop our abundant greenhouse gases by taking simple precautions anddoing more to utilize clean energies. Our planet is unique in every way, there are billionsof planets in the universe, but none like earth.
