2CLIMATE CHANGE AND MODERN TECHNOLOGYQuestion to Answer 1:The concept of Global warming can be explained as a type of climate change in whichthe median air inversion or temperature rises more than above normal, adjacent to the surfaceof our globe. This disparaging effect leads to the occurrence of many adverse after-effects.The terror of global warming has been tormenting our earth’s ecological balance over the pastcentury (Fankhauser, 2013).Over the years, eminent scientists all over the world have beenconducting various topographical researches and experiments and they have concluded thatthe climatic system of the earth is getting warmer day by day, in an alarmingly way.Science has been a boon to humans in the discovery of global warming. Brilliantscientist John Sawyer had first predicted the onset of global warming with his theory ofelevation of the carbon dioxide as well as the greenhouse gas. He stated that the extensiverise in the emission of the carbon dioxide would instantly necessitate the emergence of globalwarming (Cowie, 2012). Subsequently, the distinguished pair of scientists- Wetherald andManabe formulated a three elemental global climate model to decipher the present state of theclimate. The global climate model was generated through a computer and it lucidly depictedthat the doubling of the carbon dioxide quotient in the atmosphere spearheads the gradualwarming of the climate (Bony et al., 2013). Therefore, the aid of science is indispensable tothe public awareness of global warming.The existing effects of the global warming on the world’s ecosystem are alterations inthe quantity, magnitude, prevalence and nature of precipitation. In some rain-prone regions,the rainfall has enormously doubled while in the drought specific regions, rainfall hassurprisingly decreased. The ocean bodies have also been severely affected the existing effectsof global warming which are rapid acidification of the oceans and a heavy rise of the globalmarine altitude and the temperature (Bellard et al., 2012). The projected future effects of
3CLIMATE CHANGE AND MODERN TECHNOLOGYglobal warming on ecosystem are the happenings of extremely unbearable hot days on a largescale and the minimization of the occurrences of cold days. The ill impacts of droughts andtropical storms are also on the picture. The flora and fauna of the water bodies are expected tobecome extinct and disappear from the earth’s surface due to the reduction of the quantity offresh oxygen (Orams & Lueck, 2016).Instances of violent climatic mishaps like tsunamisand floods are also projected to occur.The existing effects of the global warming on humanity are the rise in theeventualities of communicable diseases like dengue, malaria and the expeditious loss ofhuman habitation due to the deforestation of wild forests. The fertile lands are also beingwashed away and the existing ones are turning into barren field due to desertification. Theresources of fresh air and clean water are depleting at a fast pace which is putting the healthquotient of the humans on danger. The projected future effects on global warming are therapid deportation of people from their local habitats to places where the living conditions aremildly suitable (Cook et al., 2013). This will make people of different nations increasinglyhostile towards with each other due to the intense competition related to the phenomenon ofthe survival of the fittest. Especially, people of the under-developed countries will resort towar mongering and butchering due to limited food and water supply.Global warming is a difficult or a wicked problem to solve because of its absoluteenormity and its complex socio-political repercussions (Peters et al., 2013). Fossil fuels arethe primary emitter of the hazardous carbon dioxide gas in to the atmosphere. However, fossilfuels are the primary source of revenue for the unbelievably rich populations of the MiddleEast. The oil firms concentrated in those regions hold the potentiality and the power toinfluence the top political or the diplomatic heads of the global community in accordance totheir own will and terms (Fattouh & El-Katiri, 2013).Permanent stoppage of their productionof oil would adversely change the face of the global economy forever.
