Scientists claim refrigerator gases can change the climate

A UN report said on Monday that soaring use of man-made gases used in refrigerators, air conditioners and fire extinguishers can risk speeding up for global warming.

It has been stated in the report that the annual emission of hydroflurocarbons could equate to pumping nearly nine million tonnes of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere- which makes it the third highest mankind carbon dioxide emitting tool.

Alongside the rapidly growing carbon dioxide from fossil fuels, refrigerators are going to make it hard for men to control global warming. Scientists claim that the temperature changes might be up to two degrees Celsius – which is dangerous.

A report by UN stated:

“In the future, HFC emissions have the potential to become very large. This is primarily due to growing demand in emerging economies and increasing populations.”

Even though refrigerators are not good for global warming, it is good to know the fact that the gases produced by this machine do not affect the ozone layer. In case it was damaging the ozone layer, scientists would have to start an anti-refrigerator campaign
since any damage to ozone layer would mean that a lot of diseases would spread all over the world.

A meeting in Montreal was set just to talk about this serious matter and a report from that meeting quoted:

“If HFC emissions continue to increase, they are likely to have a noticeable influence on the climate system.”

Scientists are planning on working on alternatives for this gas. However, a lot of efforts will have to be put and it is definitely going to take a lot of time for the scientists around the world to find a cure for this solution.

The plan is to either ramping up production of HFC’s that survive for a matter of days in the atmosphere. Or, another option is to use different gases to freeze or chill foods and drinks.
