We always hear the words Climate Change, but what is it really in simple terms? What are its causes? I’ll explain to you, from the heart of BluHomes.
Climate Change is not the typical changing of weather where it is rainy today, and tomorrow it is sunny. Or where it is cold today, and tomorrow it is hot. That is not Climate Change. Climate Change is the change of the average condition of the earth in the long term.
One example of this is Global Warming, the warming of the average temperature of the world these past 50, 100 years based on the studies of scientists.
This graph from NASA shows the fast increase of the average temperature of the Earth starting in the 1950s. What happened in the 1950s? Third Industrial Revolution, where the manufacturing industry and the automobile industry boomed all over the world. The burning of fossil fuels, emission of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and pollution have been rampant.
Shown in this graph also from NASA the line where the carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere has never been passed in the history of the Earth. But in the 1950s, during the Third Industrial Revolution, the trend has spiked has passed this line. This is strong evidence that Global Warming is caused by human activities, not a natural cycle of the globe.

The main source of energy in our homes and buildings are mainly from coal-fired power plants, which burns fossil fuels that emit greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide. Aside from this, our cars burn off gasoline and diesel that also releases these greenhouse gases. This means that carbon dioxide and all other greenhouse gases are increasing in our atmosphere. What will happen?
When solar energy from the sun hits the Earth, some of the energy gets reflected back to space, but some energy is trapped inside our atmosphere. Because of these greenhouse gases, more solar energy is being trapped inside our atmosphere. This is called Greenhouse Effect that causes global warming and climate change.
So what if the globe is warming? Why should I care? That is what I will share with you in part 2.
