The earth is the homeland on which mankind depends for survival, and whether mankind can live and multiply on the earth for a long time has a great relationship with the earth’s environment. In the past few decades, countries in the world have endlessly used and tapped the earth’s resources for development, and human activities have also caused considerable impact on the climate and the environment. For example, in recent years, the global greenhouse effect has become more and more serious. It is believed that the large amount of carbon dioxide emissions caused climate warming and also caused many harms. Some of these can indeed be felt by us. However, scientists now claim that the real culprit of global warming is it, not carbon dioxide.
Due to the development of industry, a lot of waste gas will inevitably be produced, of which carbon dioxide is the most common type of emission. The atmosphere already contains a certain amount of carbon dioxide, and industrial emissions have led to an increase in the amount of carbon dioxide. It was suddenly discovered that this would lead to climate warming. According to record studies, the current global average temperature has risen by 0.6°C, which has directly caused the melting of glaciers in the north and south poles. It is likely to cause sea level rise in the future. Some island countries and some territorial sea countries may be facing very serious problems. Danger.
Finally came to this conclusion: global warming is inseparable from human behavior. There was a lively discussion of such a problem at the Copenhagen International Climate Conference. Among them, some scientists put forward such a hypothesis that the cause of global warming may not be carbon dioxide, but other factors, which are likely to be derived from some natural phenomena. This is because an Australian researcher proposed that the glacier does not melt from the top, but from the bottom, so it may be due to some internal reasons. They speculated that the heat from the earth caused the glaciers to melt, and this statement is also supported by many people.
Can such a conjecture hold true? First of all, they speculated that this force comes from the heat inside the earth, which is geothermal. So how does geothermal heat come from? First of all, we all know that the earth is an almost circular ellipsoid with an inner core. In the inner core of the earth, most of these substances are magma, which have extremely high temperature, so it can be said that the earth is a natural heat and energy storage. Due to the decay of the radioactive material inside the earth, a lot of heat will be generated. We will find that there are some hot springs on the surface that can reach 60 degrees Celsius, and when some volcanic magma erupts, the temperature can reach more than 1000 degrees Celsius.
If this is the case, it means that this kind of geothermal heat may be an important factor affecting the melting of glaciers. At the same time, scientists have calculated that the amount of heat that can be released inside the earth in one year reaches 21 trillion joules. Such a huge amount of energy can shock everyone, and it is beyond imagination. In other words, the earth’s potential geothermal energy is probably the heat generated by the 49.3 billion tons of coal consumed by humans every year. Geothermal energy can be said to be a huge energy bank for mankind. In the face of this situation, we can also guess that global warming may really have a lot to do with geothermal, and perhaps carbon dioxide is not the real culprit.
Nevertheless, global warming is also closely related to carbon dioxide emissions to a certain extent, and human activities have indeed caused considerable impacts on the ecological environment. For human beings, they are the biggest beneficiaries of nature, so they should protect the environment and cherish some precious resources, so that they can develop for a long time.
