My Name Describes...Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
My name describes the retention of heat,
I am a current problem all over the world.
If everyone stopped using the fuels from the fossils,
Then the planet may not go to the underworld.
The icy ends become merciless water,
Flooding the low bits of sand.
Temperatures rising day after day,
Desperation is in all the lands.
HintI'll stop if you stop driving the car,
And if the whole world did too.
And while I'm here - listen close,
The word pollution is a clue.
Global warming retains heat by trapping carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere, which is called the greenhouse effect. It is a huge problem caused by the nonrenewable energy we use, fossil fuels (gas, oil, coal). This causes the polar caps to melt, meaning that the water levels will rise and flood low lying islands. Temperatures will rise and it will have dire consequences on the planet. Pollution is also a big part of global warming. Polluting the atmosphere by driving your car contributes to greenhouse gas emissions.
