Carbon the rise of greenhouse gas levels in the

Carbon dioxide is an important heat trapping gas that is
released to the atmosphere through anthropogenic emissions such as
deforestation and fossil fuel combustion. It can also be released to the
atmosphere through natural processes occurring such as respiration and volcanic
eruptions. During burning of fossil fuels, carbon dioxide is formed because
carbon mixes up with oxygen in the air. There are other heat trapping gasses
that contributes to Global Warming such as nitrous oxide, water vapor, methane
and CFCs. Although carbon dioxide is one of the most abundant gas contributor
to the warming of the atmosphere, but it is not as active as compared to the
other gasses such as methane and CFCs which is regulated by the International
law because of how significantly it can contribute to the trapping of heat in
the atmosphere and the depletion of the ozone layer. When greenhouse gasses are
present, the heat from the sun that is radiated to the earth (short wave
radiation) which is supposed to radiate back towards space (long wave
radiation) is trapped and redirected at all directions and mostly (90%) are
radiated back towards the earth’s surface which in turn makes the atmosphere
warmer. According to a source that I have read, that there is a direct link
between carbon dioxide and global warming because carbon dioxide has been
confirmed by several empirical evidences that it contributes to an enhanced
greenhouse effect. Less energy escaping to space at the wavelength of carbon
dioxide were observed during the last 40 years by satellites used to measure
infrared spectra. Surface measurement found that there are more infrared
radiation going downwards which causes the warming of the planet’s surface.
Because of the rise of greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere, there are
various effects on the planet’s climate that are now occurring: some countries
like the Philippines are experiencing extreme weather conditions, because of
warmer temperature, it allows more evaporation and precipitation and some regions
becomes dryer or wetter, ice on some places such as Greenland and Antarctica
are melting which causes the sea level to rise, some plants may grow vigorously
when level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere increases, furthermore, shifting
climate patterns and higher temperature will change the regions where some
crops grows best and  lastly, ocean acidification
where water in the ocean is becoming more acidic due to frequent release of
carbon dioxide which the ocean waters absorbs. There can be further detrimental
effects the global climate change as predicted by scientist: temperature will
continue to rise, global climate will perpetually change through this century
and the next, more droughts and heat waves will likely occur, change of
precipitation patterns, typhoons or hurricanes will have new records as the
strongest and biggest, arctic regions will be free of ice and by year 2100 sea
level will rise by up to 1-4 ft.
