Human activities contribute to climate change.

Combustion of crude oils is the main cause of global warming, which impacts climate change.

Combustion of crude oils is the main cause of global warming, which impacts climate change.The burning of fossil fuels and other activities has emitted large amounts of greenhouse gases, particularly over the past few decades. Humans are now enhancing the greenhouse effect and warming Earth significantly, and in ways that promise many effects. Carbon dioxide is a component of the atmosphere, which is released through natural processes such as respiration and volcano eruptions and human activities such as deforestation, land-use changes, and burning fossil fuels. Humans have increased atmospheric CO2 concentration by 47% since the industrial revolution began. Due to an increasing global temperature, seawater is expanding, taking up more space in the ocean basin. The other way is the melting of ice over land, which adds water to the ocean where the sea level rises.

In the first Presidential debate, US President Donald Trump was asked by host Chris Wallace, “What do you believe about the science of climate change” and “[Do] you believe that human pollution, gas, greenhouse gas emissions, contribute to the global warming of this planet”. Trump initially said he wants “crystal clean water and air,” argued we have “the lowest carbon” and said China, Russia, and India send-up “real dirt into the air.” Subsequently, Wallace pushed Trump to explain his views on climate science, asking if he believes human pollution contributes to the global warming of the planet. “I think a lot of things do, but I think to an extent, yes,” Trump said.
