Normally global climate change occurs very slowly and this is not the first time World is facing global warming but the problem is that climate is changing more rapidly than normal due to human activities. When world’s average temperature should be -18 it is +14 right now which is a vital difference which causes to glacier to melt and this is just a start to our climate problems.
The greenhouse effect is a natural process that occurs when gases in Earth’s atmosphere trap the heat coming from the Sun. Because the heat is trapped this process makes Earth a much warmer place.
Actually, the greenhouse effect makes our World livable but because of human activities greenhouse nature is changing and these certain greenhouse gases that trap the heat are increasing non-stop which leads to global warming. Some of these gases are carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide. Gas emissions from human activities such as burning fossil fuels for electricity, heat, and transportation increase these greenhouse gases and as a result, we see climate change’s effects.
Renewable energy or clean energy comes from natural sources and doesn’t produce any greenhouse gases as a result of the process. Sunlight and wind are an example of renewable energy. If we look at Turkey according to 2017 data approximately 89 percent of the energy used in Turkey is provided by fossil-based fuels which do not help global warming at all. We have almost 7 years left to do something about climate change after then nothing will change the outcome. We already started to see results of climate change that we can’t change even if we use renewable sources but it’s still not too late to do something. Because after some time we will be at a point where it will be incurable.
