The main cause of global warming is the destruction our environment. The quality of our environment decreases due to human activities. The emission of carbon gas in our atmosphere makes it thicker, so that sun light can be reflected back to the outer atmosphere, its accumulation causes the temperature on the earth increases continuously.
Actually the only thing that can reduce the effect of air pollution caused by emission is the existence of tree. The tree will reduce the emission significantly, because it absorbs carbon gas as well as releases oxygen.
Unfortunately, the condition of our forest now is very terrifying. In Indonesian context, we have a very fundamental problem about our forest. Illegal logging becomes a serious problem that needs to be handled seriously. The fact shows us that the destruction of our forest is very serious. Having known those bad effect resulted from environment destruction should make us think how to preserve our forest to protect human being from a terrible disaster in the future. Related to our environment destruction, it will also give us the long term effect, which is known as the effect of global warming.
In the last decade, maybe we did not realize the effect of global warming in our life. But nowadays, it seems that global warming is not only a discourse. Actually it is unavoidable situation that accelerates faster and faster. The visible effect of global warming is the temperature of the earth increases, so that we feel that now our planet is getting hotter than the previous time. This global warming then lead to climate change. It is very easy for us to find the evidence of this phenomenon. Just take a look about the change of rainy season in our country. In the past, our farmers will easily predict the time to plant rice. But what can we see now? Most of them are confused when they should start.planting rice due to their difficulty to predict the rainy season. Another bad effect of global warming is the higher sea level. It is believed that the warmer temperature causes the snow in the polar area melts, so that it increases the level of sea. The flood in some coastal areas in Indonesia as well the higher tide is the proof of the higher sea surface.
Give our heart
Finally we can say that the awareness of our society to preserve our environment has a close relationship with our behavior and culture. Habituating this attitude in our life is not an easy matter since we still have limited knowledge about environment.
Another important thing should be done dealing with this global problem is how to grow a sense of belonging to our environment. We should always think about our next generation who will experience this world. It is a wise thinking that gives us a strong self control. It is now a good moment to actualize our best role to make a betterment in our life in the future by establishing a better world. Actually we can save our planet everyday.. (Condro Nur Alim)
