We are sure you have noticed the rise in temperatures. As summers have become hotter, winters have also become colder. Why? Global warming is a really good reason. This is what happens when the environment is not given enough concern and pollution is allowed to affect it negatively.
A report, which has been released by the World Meteorological Organization or WMO stated that the year 2013 was the sixth hottest year that has ever been recorded. Another report produced by NASA regards it as the seventh hottest year and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration claims it to be the fifth hottest year. Indeed, the discrepancies are there, but the basic fact remains the same. Last year was among the hottest to ever be recorded.
The deputy director of NASA told the press that every organization analyzed their data by different techniques and so the rankings vary. As for the temperature differences, they are very close.
A climatologist at a reputed university said that despite the discrepancies, 2013 can be regarded among the top ten hottest years. He added that the same can be said for other recent years as well.
According to an industry expert, climate has always been affected by natural occurring processes. Events such as volcanoes have always played their part in increasing temperatures and causing floods and other natural disasters. He also said that the sea level has risen, and this is why the temperatures have soared and floods have become more severe.
If simulated climatic models are first observed without the effects of human factors and then with them, the noted differences in temperatures are five times less. So where is the problem? Where is all this heat coming from? Like we said, pollution is the primary cause.
The government is already aware of this and has launched many programs that are aimed at protecting the environment and controlling global warming, but as an individual, you must also play your part.
So if you do not want hotter years than they already are; play your part and protect mother earth. Reduce and recycle the waste that you do produce; save energy, conserve water, and most of all, encourage others to do the same. If everyone makes a contribution, these little efforts will pave way for apparent results.
