[Ambassador report] [Thematic report] Research of Carbon Dioxide

by Nina He | 14-05-2020 02:09 Comments 10 Comments recommendations 0 recommendations



Human beings are engaged in all kinds of activities every day. For example: drink a cup of tea, drive to the supermarket, print a document and so on. But these little things that we have long been accustomed to can affect the whole planet. Therefore, it is necessary to calculate the harm of an event to the earth. 

According to my research, by 2020, the total carbon dioxide emissions of 17 countries are 29.737 billion tons (I surveyed the top 17 countries), and the total population of these countries is 4.56844 billion people. Per capita emissions: 7.9206 tons. The rate of meeting the emission reduction target is 47.06%. And these are just statistics from 17 countries. Let's imagine what will happen to the world if the world doesn't control its carbon dioxide emissions. At the current rate, experts predict that the earth's temperature will rise by 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2030. 

The greatest harm of carbon dioxide to the environment is Greenhouse Effect: greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide in the atmosphere can radiate longer-wavelength long-wave radiation to the ground after strongly absorbing ground long-wave radiation, which plays a role in heat preservation of the ground. 

Since the Industrial Revolution, due to human activities emitting a large amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has increased sharply, resulting in the growing strength of Greenhouse Effect. 

According to statistics, before industrialization, the global average annual concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide was 278ppm, while in 2012, the global average annual concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide was 393.1ppm. In April 2014, the monthly average concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide in the Northern Hemisphere exceeded 400ppm for the first time. 

The intensification of the Greenhouse Effect in the atmosphere leads to global warming, resulting in a series of unpredictable global climate problems. According to the International Climate change Economics report, if human beings continue to maintain their current way of life, there is a 50% chance that the global average temperature will rise by 4 ℃ by 2100. If the global temperature rises by 4 ℃, the glaciers in the north and south poles of the earth will melt, and as a result, the sea level will rise, and more than 40 island countries around the world and the coastal cities with the most populous boundaries will be in danger of inundation. the lives of tens of millions of people around the world will be in crisis, and even lead to global ecological balance disorder, and eventually lead to large-scale global migration and conflict.

    Hi Nina He, this is a mentor Sang Su Lee.

    Wow... That's really huge amount of carbon dioxide that humans' activities are making. I heard that even the rise of the temperature by 3 degree Celsius can result in the drastic extinction of animals. By looking at your data, I feel the need that humans should slow down development, but focus on the environmental health...

    Green Cheers!

    Greetings nina
    I hope you are doing well
    Carbon dioxide isn't harmful but when it's concentration is above base level. It's disastrous
    Thank you so much for this report
    Green cheers

    Hello Nina He, this is mentor Taehyun!

    Carbon dioxide, I think it's an amazing substance. In fact, when there's an adequate amount, it's a greenhouse effect that keeps the temperature of our planet warm. Without carbon dioxide, the average temperature on Earth would be much lower than it is now, making it difficult for people to live in. However, the amount of carbon dioxide is so high that it has the negative effects of global warming. There's a local campaign called the 350 Campaign, which aims to return the Earth's carbon dioxide concentration to below 350 ppm. Let's change our lifestyle and reduce the amount of carbon dioxide!

    Thank you for the report!

    Green cheers!
