The important thing to reduce global warming effect to our earth is add more tree. This blog was made to give us insight about global warming, what impact they will have on our lives and how we can stop it.

Change your Light Bulb

You can help to reduce global warming by using energy more wisely. It cause burning fossil fuels such as natural gas, coal, oil and gasoline raises the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and carbon dioxide is a major contributor to the greenhouse effect and global warming. The simple actions you can take to help reduce global warming is change a light bulb with compact fluorescent lamp in your house.

A compact fluorescent lamp (CFL), also known as a compact fluorescent light bulb (or less commonly as a compact fluorescent tube [CFT]) is a type of fluorescent lamp. Many CFLs are designed to replace an incandescent lamp and can fit in the existing light fixtures formerly used for incandescents. Compared to general service incandescent lamps giving the same amount of visible light, CFLs use less power and have a longer rated life.

Wherever practical, replace regular light bulbs with compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. Replacing just one 60-watt incandescent light bulb with a CFL will save you $30 over the life of the bulb. CFLs also last 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs, use two-thirds less energy, and give off 70 percent less heat. If every family replaced one regular light bulb with a CFL, it would eliminate 90 billion pounds of greenhouse gases, the same as taking 7.5 million cars off the road.

Plant A Tree And Save The Earth

A new study says that planting more trees in tropical rainforests could help slow global warming worldwide.The Our study shows that tropical forests are very eneficial to control the climate. Forests affect climate in three different ways: they absorb the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and help to keep the planet cool; they evaporate water to the atmosphere and increase cloudiness, which also helps keep the planet cool; and they are dark and absorb a lot of sunlight, warming the Earth. Climate change mitigation strategies that promote planting trees have taken only the first effect into account.

The study also concludes that by the year 2100, forests in mid and high latitudes will make some places up to 10 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than would have occurred if the forests did not exist.The darkening of the surface by new forest canopies in the high latitude regions allows absorption of more sunlight that helps to warm the surface. In fact, planting more trees in high latitudes could be counterproductive from a climate perspective. The study finds little or no climate benefit when trees are planted in temperate region.

Global Warming

Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and oceans since the mid-twentieth century and its projected continuation.Increasing global temperature will cause sea level to rise, and is expected to increase the intensity of extreme weather events and to change the amount and pattern of precipitation. Other effects of global warming include changes in agricultural yields, trade routes, glacier retreat, species extinctions and increases in the ranges of disease vectors.

Remaining scientific uncertainties include the amount of warming expected in the future, and how warming and related changes will vary from region to region around the globe. Most national governments have signed and ratified the Kyoto Protocol aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but there is ongoing political and public debate worldwide regarding what, if any, action should be taken to reduce or reverse future warming or to adapt to its expected consequences.

The Earth's climate changes in response to external forcing, including variations in its orbit around the Sun (orbital forcing), volcanic eruptions, and atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations. The detailed causes of the recent warming remain an active field of research, but the scientific consensus is that the increase in atmospheric greenhouse gases due to human activity caused most of the warming observed since the start of the industrial era. This attribution is clearest for the most recent 50 years Some other hypotheses departing from the consensus view have been suggested to explain the temperature increase. One such hypothesis proposes that warming may be the result of variations in solar activity.

Over the past several years, increased awareness of the scientific findings surrounding global warming has resulted in political and economic debate. Poor regions, particularly Africa, appear at greatest risk from the suggested effects of global warming, while their actual emissions have been small compared to the developed world. At the same time, developing country exemptions from provisions of the Kyoto Protocol have been criticized by the United States and Australia, and have been used as part of the rationale for continued non-ratification by the U.S. In the Western world, the idea of human influence on climate has gained wider acceptance in Europe than in the United States.

Indonesia urges G-8 on carbon emissions

Indonesia has insisted the advanced countries grouped in G-8 on immediately meeting their commitment to reduce their carbon emission, and fulfilling their responsibility to the developing countries in the handling dealing with climate and environmental change.

The remark was made by Masnellyarti Hilman in her capacity as Deputy to the Environment Minister for Natural Resources Conservation Improvement and Environmental Damage Control who led an Indonesian delegation to the Environment Ministrial Meeting of G-8 here on Sunday.

Masmellyarti Hilman said sustainable handling of environmental issues and climate change depended on cooperation between the two sides especially between advanced and developing countries in a concrete framework.

"There are three matters which have come under public spotlight in the ministrial meeting, namely the transfer of technology, adaptation and fund raising," she said.

Japan as host to the G-8 meeting has invited the developing countries like Indonesia, Malaysia and Mexico to provide them with important inputs.

Japan will also host a finance ministerial meeting on April 5-6, 2008 and the results of the meeting will serve as input and proposals in the G-8 summit in Hokkaido, Japan, in July 2008.

"The intention to reduce carbon emissions of 50 percent in the next 50 years is often deemed as a future program, so that it may entail a medium-term program often made as indicator of the seriousness of all parties," he said.

Masnellyarti Hilman was of the opinion that the advanced countries till now have yet to further meet their commitment, while the handling of environmental and climate change needed more concrete steps.(*)

About Us

Who we are?
Add more tree include a wide range from academicians, workers, farmers and other people who care with forests condition in Indonesia. Our main purpose is provide seed for Forest Recovery Project.

How about forests in Indonesia?
Some 10 percent of the world's remaining tropical forest is found in Indonesia, which has a total forest area of more than 225,000,000 acres. Of this, 61 percent is lowland evergreen broadleaf rainforest. Indonesia has lost 72 percent of its intact ancient forests and half of what remains is threatened by commercial logging, forest fires and clearances for palm oil plantations. Indonesia has made it into the Guiness Book of Records for achieving the world's fastest rate of deforestation, with an area the size of 300 soccer fields every hour. Turning Indonesia from a forest-rich country to a forest-poor country.

Why you must care?
More scientists was estimate that 20% of global warming is caused by deforestation. So, deforestation in one country will also affect other countries around the world including your country through global warming effect. If humanity wants to stop and even reverse global warming, then mankind must not only stop deforestation, but mankind must also plant millions of acres of trees to counteract all the ways that carbon is released into the atmosphere, such as burning fossil fuels. And we hope your support to our project, Thankyou.
