Hello everyone it has been long since I posted something but I have been doing research on global warming and how it affects us.
The research that I have been doing am focusing on particularly the effects of global warming.
Global warming is the long-term warming of the planet’s overall temperature. Though this warming trend has been going on for a long time, its pace has significantly increased in the last hundred years due to the burning of fossil fuels. As the human population has increased, so has the volume of fossil fuels burned. Fossil fuels include coal, oil, and natural gas, and burning them causes what is known as the “greenhouse effect” in Earth’s atmosphere.

The greenhouse effect is when the Sun’s rays penetrate the atmosphere, but when that heat is reflected off the surface cannot escape back into space. Gases produced by the burning of fossil fuels prevent the heat from leaving the atmosphere. These greenhouse gasses are carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, water vapor, methane, and nitrous oxide. The excess heat in the atmosphere has caused the average global temperature to rise overtime, otherwise known as global warming.

Global warming has presented another issue called climate change. Sometimes these phrases are used interchangeably, however, they are different. Climate change refers to changes in weather patterns and growing seasons around the world. It also refers to sea level rise caused by the expansion of warmer seas and melting ice sheets and glaciers. Global warming causes climate change, which poses a serious threat to life on earth in the forms of widespread flooding and extreme weather. Scientists continue to study global warming and its impact on Earth.
I wish you the very best and you keep safe.
Thank you.

Hello everyone am Dennis Ngatia and this is my first year in butterfly effect.I am 17 years old and am in grade 11 now.I have been in butterfly effect for atleast one year now and it has helped me a lot.I would like to say that through butterfly effect I have been able yo learn many things and even people from outside our country and I appreciate that we usually talk with them very well.I dont think I have something that I have forgotten but if there is I will let you know.Bye.


  1. Hey Denno!
    Good job with your research! Its very easy to understand and full of information. Global warming is a very pressing issue in our society. Especially sea leaving raising and possible lose of animals like polar bears because of climate change.
    I look forward to your posts!

  2. Hi Denno!!
    Welcome back! 🙂 Your post is very well written with a lot of details. It is easy to read!

    What made you research about climate change?

    • The reason as to why I decided to do this research is because I saw that it is affecting us very much and that’s why I’m really concentrating on it to see the ways we can use to minimize it.

      • Yes, that is very true! it is affecting us one way or the other. And it is something to concentrate on.

        what do you think would be a big help in reducing it?
