Dear MEL Topic Readers,

How to save the planet: Five simple things you can do

A Green House Gas, GHS, has the property of absorbing infrared radiation (net heat energy) emitted from Earth’s surface and reradiating it back to Earth’s surface, and as a result, it contributes to the greenhouse effect. It includes water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone. It is thought to have been causing global warming since the Industrial Revolution, having produced a 45% increase in the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide. The majority of carbon dioxide emission comes from burning fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, and natural gas. Other factors like deforestation, changes in land use, agriculture and soil erosion are also to blame. Should GHG emission increase at the current pace, global temperatures would rise by 2°C before the middle of the century, which would cause potentially harmful effects on ecosystems, biodiversity, and human livelihoods.

While governments and businesses are reluctant or slow to tackle this most dangerous and catastrophic human-caused problem in human history, there are things that individuals can do to help reduce the emission of such hazardous gasses.

Enjoy watching the video to learn what you can do to save the planet.
