Sultry hot days have just been pushed through by the showers bringing in some respite for us. But do you know we all are responsible for this delayed rainfall and upsurging temperatures. All this because of the gases we exhume burning fuel, generating electricity and above all keeping ourselves cool running A.C. and refrigeration.
The greenhouse gases add to the rising temperature disturbing the heat zone and forming a gaseous envelope above the stratosphere; preventing the heat radiated from earth’s surface to penetrate the stratosphere increasing the temperature around the earth causing melting of snowcaps. This also occurs due to a phenomenon called El-Nino- related to ENSO- El Nino Southern Oscillation.
It is a weather phenomenon which begin in the equatorial pacific ocean but affect weather in many parts of the globe. It is a change in ocean atmospheric system in the eastern Pacific. El-Nino occurs over a time cycle varying from 2-7 years, is marked by the rise of surface temperature of waltes in the equatorial Pacific. During El-Nino the cycle of upwelling is disturbed causing delicate ecological balance to be disturbed.
