Contributing to Greenhouse gasses by City Tech Blogger Jose Guerrero

 

In order to slow down climate change we need to cut back on many things we use. If we keep going the way we are, there will be more temperature rise. One of the things we can do is limit our contributions to the greenhouse gasses. Greenhouse gasses are a very small percentage of the atmosphere but effect the temperature of the Earth immensely. These small percentages can create dangerous conditions for us. If the Earth gets hotter it will become unlivable because of the higher temperatures in the future and make it harder to grow food.

To help with this problem there has been an agreement which is to lower car emissions, and the main emission from cars are greenhouse gases, mainly carbon dioxide.

We cannot control all the variables of the gasses and atmosphere but cars are one we can. We can make cars more efficient and cleaner. They have even made cars turn off every time they stop, and then they start again when it’s time to go. This will help enormously with the amount of fossil fuels burned into the atmosphere which contributes to greenhouse gases. When there are inspections of cars it is necessary to check emissions. They check and regulate car emissions in order to control the little bit that we can. This is how we do our part, by controlling what we can. People may think well if we do something so small will it really make a difference and the answer is it can because everyone doing a small part will help on a bigger scale. Eventually, we can effect a small percentage of greenhouse gasses and help ourselves out.
