Welcome to SaveTheEnvironment.com,- a personal website and community blog featuring global warming and climate change, and the top ways that each and everyone of us can pitch in our efforts to help save the environment!
What is Global Warming?
Based on the measurements that we have available to us since record keeping first began in 1880’s, the facts seem to indicate that our world is getting warmer. This is the trend that we are referring to when we use the phrase ‘global warming.’ Before we debate whether this is true or not, let’s take a look to see what the scientists are saying. If you’ve heard of global warming but aren’t familiar with the details, this is a great place to get started. Empower yourself with knowledge. The first step in saving the environment is educating yourself:
What are greenhouse gases?
And how do they get into our atmosphere? The gases ammonia, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane gas, and a class of gases collectively known as the chlorofluorocarbons, are all referred to as the greenhouse gases. These are the damaging gases that are contained in the pollution coming out of our factories, as well as the exhaust coming out of our automobiles. And these gases together are primarily responsible for producing the effect referred to by scientists as the greenhouse effect:
Global Warming or Climate Change?
The terms global warming and climate change are often used interchangeably. You see it happen on websites, and blogs, and books. It’s very common! And the terms global warming and climate change are used interchangeably here as well. But what is the actual difference between these terms? In moving forward, there is a slight difference that you should at least be aware of. So what do we mean when we use these different words? Global warming and climate change?,= equals cause and effect!

What is Deforestation?
According to the experts, forests cover more than 30 percent of the land area on our planet. They help people thrive by purifying the air we breath and the water we drink, and they provide a home to a huge chunk of our terrestrial biodiversity, providing habitat for a vast array of trees, plants, animals, and insects. Forests also play a critical role in preventing climate change because they absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. What are the principle causes of deforestation and its impacts? And how is deforestation related to global warming?
Agriculture & Climate Change.
In terms of environmental impact, the loss of trees caused by agriculture has a significant impact on global warming and climate change. The process of removing trees to create farmland, whether it is used for growing crops, or for grazing cattle, not only removes the vegetation we need to offset climate change, but also contributes damaging greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. In this section, let’s take a look at what the experts are saying about modern-day agriculture and it’s role in encouraging deforestation, climate change, and how it impacts a loss of biodiversity.
