Dr. C. Ravichandran gave a Lecturer
on Global warming. He gave a detailed explanation about environment
and global warming. He stated the causes and effects of global
warming. He also listed the remedies for controlling them. As
far the causes are concerned Chlorofluorocarbon and CO2 are the
main reasons for the change in environment. These are emitted
form our daily usages like Fridge, AC’s, vehicle, form burning
plastics, deforestation etc.
Because of these effects it causes
glacier melts, artic melts, temperature rise in atmosphere, climate
change and water level rise in oceans and seas.
As part of remedy plastics should be avoided and not be burnt;
only renewable energy should be used, vehicles should be avoided
and bicycles should be used. Apart form these, deforestation should
be completely avoided and planting of more trees should be done.
