There is growing evidence that man-made activities are making global temperatures higher. What might be the man-made causes of temperature rising? How should we deal with this problem? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own experiences or knowledge

  Global warming has become a public health problem as its effects are deleterious to all life forms. Sadly,
this
dilemma of increasing worldwide temperature is caused solely by man's activities. The two major man-made causes of
this
issue are the use of fossil fuels for
energy
and deforestation. There are a variety of ways to tackle
this
controversial issue,
however
, in my opinion, conversion to renewable sources of
energy
and planting of trees or preservation of green life in general will prove effective.        
First
and foremost, industrialization brought about the advancement of the modern world, but
also
the continuous emission of dangerous pollutants into the earth's atmosphere. For centuries, coal and other fossil fuels have been used to generate
energy
for our daily activities. Experts have shown that these gases are responsible for the elevation of the planet's core temperature as they cause depletion of the protective covering of the earth called the ozone layer which counteracts the greenhouse effect. To solve
this
problem, governments globally should place an embargo on the use of fossil fuels as
energy
. Resources should go to the research and development of other forms of reusable
energy
such
as water and nuclear power.
This
will allow for healing of the ozone layer since the factors causing its destruction would have been eliminated.    
Secondly
, as the population of humans increase, so is the need for more space for housing and other infrastructures.
This
has led to a vast depletion of the trees that are responsible for clearing out the earth's air.
Furthermore
, the trees, especially in the arctic region help to preserve the permafrost
,
Accept space
,
which keeps the core temperature cool. The absence of
this
causes a rise in temperatures with resultant melting of the polar ice caps. To deal with
this
, areas where deforestations have already taken place should commence tree planting drives.
For example
, there are countries where community service for minor infractions are done by planting at least 500 trees. Government should
also
make policies that ensure incorporation of nature and trees into works and housing plans.    In conclusion, the biggest challenge of
this
generation might as well be global warming. It is the culmination of the effects of man's activities
such
as burning fuels and cutting down trees. I believe that changing to alternative forms of power and worldwide planting of trees can help solve
this
issue.
