Nine Interesting Facts about Global Warming 2014

>The leading cause of global warming is from water vapor, then carbon dioxide emissions, nitrous oxides, and chlorofluorocarbons (used in household appliances like air conditioning).

>Chlorofluorocarbons are expected to be eliminated and put out of use by 2030 to help slow down global warming.

>The biggest business sectors that are contributing to global warming are the following: Industry, Transportation, Residential, Commercial, Agriculture.

>Methane is the second biggest cause of greenhouse warming. Gas from cows is a big contributor to global warming.

>A big enough volcano eruption could cool the earth for one or two years because sulfuric acid from the explosion would combine with water vapor to form a “shield” that would reflect some sunlight away from earth. Such an eruption would be quite catastrophic, though.

>The coloration of aerosols (miniscule particles in the air) generally changes their relationship with the sun. Lightly colored aerosols reflect light back away from earth (as a white t-shirt) while darker aerosols generally absorb heat (as a hot asphalt road when it is sunny).

>Generally, wispy clouds, such as cirrus clouds, trap light and thus warm the atmosphere whilst thick clouds generally reflect sunlight.

>Ice/snow cover cools the earth by reflecting sunlight.

>Without water vapor’s effect on the atmosphere, the earth would be at below freezing temperatures
