Global Warming

What Is Global Warming?

Global warming is the rise in the average temperature of Earth’s atmosphere and oceans since the late 19th century and its projected continuation.

Since the early 20th century, Earth’s mean surface temperature has increased by about 0.8 °C (1.4 °F), with about two-thirds of the increase occurring since 1980..

Global warming is affecting many parts of the world.  Global warming makes the sea rise, and when the sea rises, the water covers many low land islands.  This is a big problem for many of the plants,animals, and people on islands.

The water covers the plants and causes some of them to die.  When they die, the animals lose a source of food, along with their habitat.

The global warming is caused by Greenhouse gases. These gases are released by humans in the atmosphere. These gases cause harmful effects to the environment as they have a special property to trap heat in them.

They let the sun’s heat and light to enter the atmosphere & they let the sunlight to go out of space. But it traps the sun’s heat which makes the the warm.

 This global warming is very harmful to mankind. We are destroying our own lives. We are destroying our own planet and our own generations.

We have to save our planet. We have to make our planet green, so that our future generations may live happily in this beautiful world. 

SO  STOP  GLOBAL  WARMING!

After the death of Mahavira, Jainism was divided into two sects.

Digambaras - They were sky-clads and were strict follower of Mahavira.
