GLOBAL WARMING by Mind Map: GLOBAL WARMING

1. CAUSES

1.1. Anthropogenic

1.1.1. Burning of fossil fuels

1.1.1.1. E.g

1.1.1.1.1. Oil

1.1.1.1.2. Coal

1.1.1.1.3. Natural Gas

1.1.1.2. Why?

1.1.1.2.1. Produces more than 80% of global energy

1.1.1.2.2. Produces electricity

1.1.2. Deforestation

1.1.2.1. E.g

1.1.2.1.1. Burning of trees

1.1.2.1.2. Cutting down of trees

1.1.2.2. Why?

1.1.2.2.1. To make products such as paper

1.1.2.2.2. Clear the area for mining activities or more

1.1.3. Changing Landuse

1.1.3.1. E.g

1.1.3.1.1. Agriculture

1.1.3.1.2. Industries

1.1.3.1.3. Urbanisation

1.1.3.2. Why?

1.1.3.2.1. Cultivating land

1.1.3.2.2. Producing crops

1.1.3.2.3. Raising livestock

1.1.3.2.4. Production of goods and services

1.1.3.2.5. Increasing number of people live in urban areas

1.2. Natural

1.2.1. Volcanic eruptions

2. Consequences

2.1. Natuaral

2.1.1. Volcanic eruption

2.1.1.1. How?

2.1.1.1.1. When volcano erupts, large volume of carbon dioxide,water vapour,sulfur dioxide,dust and ash are released into the atmosphere.

2.1.1.1.2. The particles it releases reflects solar energy back to space.

2.1.1.1.3. Causes Global Dimming

2.2. Anthropogenic

2.2.1. Burning of fossil fuels

2.2.1.1. How?

2.2.1.1.1. Produces a large amount of carbon dioxide

2.2.1.1.2. Contributes to the increase in greenhouse gases

2.2.2. Deforestation

2.2.2.1. How?

2.2.2.1.1. Lesser trees to help absorb the carbon dioxide in the air

2.2.3. Changing land use

2.2.3.1. How?

2.2.3.1.1. Agriculture

2.2.3.1.2. Industries

2.2.3.1.3. Urbanisation
