Solar Power Ethiopia

Help with Geography please? :)?

1.)During the Industrial Revolution we started experiencing the overabundance of what gases?
2.)How do Carbon Dioxide, Nitrous Oxide, Methane, and Chloroflurocarbons help to create global warming?
3.)How does worldwide ice melt affect the world and the animal populations?
4.)What impact does global warming play on our ecosystems?
5.)What helps to create strong hurricanes?
6.)How will global warming affect Ethiopia?
7.)What man made activity may help to create global warming?
8.)What activities can man do to help stop global warming?
9.)Where do scientists see the biggest impacts of global warming?

Industrial revolution lead to the increased production of gasses related to more factories etc. So here we are talking mainly about burning coal to run machinery. These gases are numerous but include: Carbon dioxide, nitrous oxides sulphur dioxide and so on.

The Gasses named in question two collect in the earth’s atmosphere and block solar radiation (rays from the sun) from leaving once they have entered. The increased amount of solar radiation resulting leads to what is know as the greenhouse effect which in turn contributes towards global warming.

It can lead to the destruction of habitats due to flooding which put simply will damage ecosystems which will then in turn lead to the total destruction or at least the reduction in animal populations either directly or through the elimination of another animals food supply.

It can change the ecosystem irreversibly. Ecosystems are very delicate things and even subtle changes can cause massive problems. Again as i write above if even one species is effected by global warming it can cause a knock on effect to the rest of the ecosystem. For example if it became too hot for a certain plant to survive the bugs that eat that plant would also begin to die out and decrease in numbers and then so would the bird that relies on those insects for its food and so on. It can also cause problems for aquatic ecosystems in the same way or could cause the rapid growth of one (heat loving plant) which would then take all the oxygen so other plants would die out and thus the ecosystem would be damaged.

It is not totally understood what causes Hurricanes but Hurricanes (must not be confused with storms) as hurricanes to be formed the sea temperature over which they form must be at least 26- 27 degrees Celsius this causes the air above to be unstable which allows for the production of circular currents (called convection currents). Also there needs to be a lot of moisture in the air (high humidity)

The true answer to this question is we dont know. Ethiopia could become even more dry and at risk of drought and thus more famine could occur but it could just as easily go the other way. Global climate change (the more up to date theory than global warming) could mean that Ethiopia could become a wetter flooded country. We simply do not know is the honest answer.

Again this could be anything from driving cars that burn lots of fuel or even lighting our homes and playing computer games. All of these things require the burning of fuel which in turn produce the gasses named in question 2. Another good example is deforestation (cutting down large areas of trees) as trees are good at getting rid of lots of carbon dioxide and turning it into oxygen. So if man cuts down lots of trees more carbon dioxide will end up in the atmosphere which contributes towards global warming.

The opposite to the above. Man could plant more trees (reforestation) use cars that run on less damaging fuels (such as hydrogen) and cut down the use of electricity in the home. Other sources of energy is also a way we can help to reduce global warming.. examples of this include wind power (big turbines) tidal power generated from the waves and currents of our seas and oceans and HEP which stands for Hydro Electric power (from rivers) However it is unlikely that we will be able to stop it but maybe stop it from getting worse. These things can have their own problems as well. HEP often requires building a dam and flooding large areas which could destroy all important forests.

The often see most damage in the colder environments such as the poles (NORTH AND SOUTH) this is because they can see ice melting and a reduction in the overall amount of ice. They are the most monitored areas by scientists because they are such sensitive environments.

Hope this helps
