Climate Change: Temperature Increment by Samuel Guzman Santos

According to the Environment Protection Agency (EPA), the temperature of the U.S is projected to increase four to eleven grades Fahrenheit by 2100 if global warming keeps increasing at the same rate as today. This dramatic change in the temperature is not just going to affect our environment, it is going to harm our health, our ability to produce food, the economy and the future of the human species.  NASA argues that the main cause of the current global warming trend is the human expansion of the “greenhouse effect “warming that results when the atmosphere traps heat radiating from earth toward space (www.climate.nasa.gov). Driving a car, using electricity as a source of light and heat for your home, and throwing away garbage all contribute to growing greenhouse gas emissions. You can reduce emissions through simple actions like changing a traditional light bulb to a fluorescent bulb that lasts longer, powering down electronics, using less water, and recycling. Furthermore, we need to work in other solutions to decrease or stop the rate in which earth is warming up or soon earth will no longer be able to support life.
