Which human activity doea not affect the earth system?
Asked in Global Warming
Is there a relationship between global warming and natural phenomena like earthquakes tsunamis and volcanic eruptions?
All these phenomena can emit some carbon dioxide emissions. (Not very much. Human activity is responsible for 100 times the amount of carbon dioxide that comes from volcanic eruptions.) However, carbon dioxide does add to the enhanced greenhouse effect which is causing global warming. The other side of the story is that dust and other airborne particulates from volcano eruptions have a cooling effect for some days, as the ash cloud blocks heat from the sun.

What are man's activities that affect fynbos biome?
Asked in Ecosystems
What are the four types of processes that cycle matter through the biosphere?
1. Biological Processes 2. Geological Processes 3. Chemical and Physical Processes 4. Human Activity The biological processes like respiration, the geological processes like volcanic eruptions. Also there are the chemical/physical processes like rain, and lastly the human processes like the burning of fossil fuels.
Asked in Global Warming
What natural disasters will happen because of global warming?
Natural disasters are destructive events not caused by human actions. Earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, cyclones, tornadoes, flooding downpours and major storms are all examples. Global warming will only cause the serious weather events, adding extra energy to storms. It will have nothing to do with earthquakes, tornadoes and volcanic eruptions.
Do volcanoes cause global warming?
Volcanoes don't cause global warming, which is caused by the human activities of deforestation and by the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) in industry, transport and the generation of electricity, which releases carbon dioxide (CO2). However, they can affect global warming. Volcanic eruptions can enhance global warming by adding some carbon dioxide (CO2) to the atmosphere. Volcanic eruptions can reduce global warming for a short time by blocking and reflecting the sun's heat with their ash.
