Cars and Global Warming

Posted by Argam DerHartunian on July 06, 2011 0 Comments

Carbon emmision, the chief global warming pollutant has increased 31% compared to pre-industrial levels. Studies of the Earth’s climate history show that even small changes in cabon levels generally have come with significant shifts in the global average temperature.Without effective policies to reduce greenhouse gas pollution, the global average temperature will increase, on the low end, 2.0 degrees Fahrenheit , and on the high end, 11.5 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100. That might not sound like a lot, but even 2 degrees rise in temperature will result in serious climate change. More intense storms, more pronounced droughts, coastal areas more severely eroded by rising seas. At the high end of the predictions, the world could face, catastrophic and irreversible consequences.

In the mean time Arctic is feeling the effects the most. Average temperatures in Alaska, western Canada, and eastern Russia have risen at twice the global average, according to the multinational Arctic Climate Impact Assessment report compiled between 2000 and 2004.

Arctic ice is rapidly melting, and the region may have its first completely ice-free summer by 2040 or earlier. Glaciers and mountain snows are rapidly disappearing—for example, Montana's Glacier National Park now has only 27 glaciers, versus 150 in 1910. 

The solution to reducing carbon pollution partly lies in exploiting green technologies available to us. Installing Hydrogen on Demand Generator in your car will drastically reduce carbon emissions and increase your car's efficiency.
