What is the main reason to our current global warming situation? Most would say the main cause to our current global warming is vehicles and industries creating the emissions. The truth is, from statistics, the main contributor to greenhouse gas emissions is electricity. Looking at that, the easiest way for a person to help reduce the production of greenhouse gases should be to reduce energy consumption and transportation usage as much as possible. However, I’ve just found a video that brings up a totally different point of view to the table (I’ll talk more about the more widely accepted reasons later).
Looking at this graph from Wikipedia, It appears that agricultural byproducts contribute to a fair share of the total Anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. It contributes to a very large portion (40%) of methane and 62% of Nitrous Oxide. A majority of these gases are produced indirectly through human activities in agriculture. Methane, a greenhouse gas (CH4) is quite harmful because this human-created greenhouse gas (there are natural sources as well) in the troposphere traps more heat than usual, resulting in strange, unnatural weather patterns, and an overall higher Earth surface temperature.
With that in mind, take a look at this video (It is not mine, and I am not suggesting anything… I just wanted to show you guys).
I decided to show you guys this video to provide a different perspective… however, I believe that no one fully understands why global warming is happening today. There are many theories, some more widely accepted than others. I showed you some facts, along with this video. Ultimately, it’s up to the individual to decide what the main cause of global warming is.
