It can be said to be an air pollutant when on loweratmosphere leading to adverse effects on the respiratory systems of human beings and animalsand also destroy sensitive plants by fire. However, the ozone in the upper atmosphere is useful inthat it prevents electromagnetic radiations which are harmful from reaching the earth. The ozonelater becomes a green house gas when it is in the upper troposphere. Concentration ofgreenhouse gases in the atmosphere leads to global warming (O’Hare, 112). This paper willbasically address the potential problems caused by global warming in the contemporary world.Argument High population growth has adversely affected the climate due to global warming(Birdsall, 76). Global warming is brought about by people burning fossil fuels to get power fortheir industries. Increased population means high demand for fuels and this fuel when burnt,carbon dioxide goes into the atmosphere and mixes with warm air and form green house gas. TheUnited States is ranked third in terms of population and the population is expected to rise evenmore by 2050. For Canada, environmental analysts have described it as far stable that it is USAin terms of greenhouse gas emissions. As population increases, the environment is affected inthat the high number of people will compete over the scarce resources.
Surname2 In addition, Mendelsohn (p.79) states that the high population has led to establishment ofmore industries to care for their needs. Due to industrialization, the environment have beenaffected much as these industries mostly direct their wastes in rivers and lakes henceendangering the lives of water animals and also leads to infections among people who consumewater or use it for their domestic purposes. The waste gases from industries also pollute theenvironment and this adversely affects the climate. When these gases are emitted to theatmosphere, they form acid rain which is harmful to plants. However, some countries use fuel from trees. Due to high populations, trees have beenfelled in big numbers and bearing in mind that tress attract rain, there will experience dry spellsdue to cutting down of trees (Birdsall, 100) There is a link between climatic change anddepletion of the ozone. Ozone have an impact on climate change because the higher the ozone inthe atmosphere, the more the heat that is retained and vice versa. The high population has led toincreased urbanization as people look for employment in industries in major industrial towns.This influx of people in urban areas cause global warming due to emission of harmful gases tothe atmosphere in a bid to look for means of survival. Canadian Environmental Policy states that efforts to lessen greenhouse gases are crucialin attainment of international goals. The concentration of gases which trap heat in theatmosphere, emitted through industrialization and high demand for energy has increased thegreen house effect that finally leads to change in climate. Climate change affects the lives ofpeople due to food scarcity, change in disease patterns and high conflicts over the limitedresources. Canadian environmental policy is dedicated to impacting positively on theenvironment. The communities in Canada are encouraged to improve their home environment toattain sustainable development (Mendelsohn, 99).
Surname3 In conclusion, many countries which are more industrialized and emit more gases in theatmosphere hence leading to global warming, should address this problem in a more pronouncedmanner because this is a global problem seemingly affecting the contemporary world.
