Q. Answer the following question.
Q.1. How does global warming affect the climate pattern?
Ans. Global warming affects the climate pattern of the earth in a very adverse manner. The health of the planet earth depends on maintaining a complex balance of interrelated system. Global warming is changing the way water is transferred from oceans to the land and precipition accelerating the entire cycle. In addition, the increased warmth also increases the amount of water vapour in the atmosphere which magnifies the greenhouse effect and speeds the process still further. As the global warming heats up the polar regions faster than the topics . it changes the way the earth achieves a balance between hot and cold.
Q.2. why does water carry spiritual significance in most religions?
Ans. Water plays a significant in our life .It is 71 percent of the whole human body . it is considered to be a divine purifier no worship to God in Hindu religion is performed without water. In Christian baptism too .it is used symbolizing purification and regeneration.
Q.3. Describe the effects of deforestation on the eco-system.
Ans. Widespread deforestation is a great concern for the future of human life. The destruction of a forest can affect the hydrological cycle in given area. More water is stored in the forests of the earth especially the tropical rain forests than in its lakes.Forests themselves produce rain clouds partly because of evapotranspiration . Immediately after the rain falls on a rain forest , a fine mist begins to float back into the sky. It increases both the humidity in the air and the odds of more rain just downwind . Forests also attract rain by producing gases called terpenes and small amounts of a compound called dimethylsulfide which float into the atmosphere as a gas . the tiny grains around which droplets of rainwater form.
The deforestation would cause damage to eco-system as it would cease these contribution by the forests and thereby that of the rain amidst.
Q.4.Describe the effects of population growth on the global water system.
Ans. Population growth is one of the major factor which threatens the existence f human life. Population is growing at a very rapid speed but resources are limited .Naturally , the pressure of population is becoming grave on the resources. As a result resources are exhausted because the speed of the growth of human population .Hence resources are sinking . we are cutting forests and digging the earth and this is all an invitation to our own doom.
Q.5. Write two ways in which global warming raises sea levels.
Ans. Two ways in which Global Warming raises sea level are :
- Higher average temperatures result in the melting of glaciers ,in ice being discharged into the ocean s from the ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland, and in the thermal expansion of the volume of the sea as its water warms.
- In some coastal cities like Miami , the freshwater aquifer on which it relies for its drinking water actually float on salt water , so that rising seas would push the water table up – in some cases , to the surface.
Q.6. What should we do solve the problem of fresh water ?
Ans. Human beings are the worst vicitims of the problem of the fresh water , they need to use their common sense. The rains bring us trees and flowers. The droughts bring gaping cracks in the world. The lakes and river sustain us slowing through the veins of the earth . so we must be aware to take care to let them flow back out as pure as they come . we should not poison and waste them.
