Political History of Global Warming - Political History of Global Warming There is a lot of ambiguity surrounding the theory of 'global warming' and the proper political response to it. At the very center of the scientific debate on the variability of global climate is to what extent human activities influence climate change. Another unforeseeable is whether the potential impacts of climate change will be harmful or beneficial for humans, managed agriculture, and natural ecosystems. Some question the authority with which current scientific data has been given in international negotiations on the regulation of greenhouse gases....   [tags: Global Warming Climate Change]

When Did Global Warming Become Climate Change? - "If we want to address global warming, along with the other environmental problems associated with our continued rush to burn our precious fossil fuels as quickly as possible, we must learn to use our resources more wisely, kick our addiction, and quickly start turning to sources of energy that have fewer negative impacts." -- David Suzuki Earlier this year one of my friends asked, “So which essay topic did you decide on?” To which I responded, “Global warming.” Then my friend responded, “That is impossible....   [tags: Climate Change vs Global Warming]

Global Warming and the Greenhouse Effect - Global Warming and the Greenhouse Effect      Recently, global warming has moved to a serious scientific issue. Because sunlight is constantly falling on the earth, the law of physics say that the planet has to radiate the same amount of energy back into space. Infrared radiation is sent out by the earth through the atmosphere, where molecules (carbon dioxide) hold outgoing radiation for a while, warming the surface.1 The molecules are kind of like glass in a greenhouse which is why this process of warming is called the greenhouse effect....   [tags: Environment Global Warming Climate Change] 1908 words

Essay on Global Warming: - Introduction: The purpose of this paper is to investigate whether global warming could affect the thermohaline circulation cycle (THC) significantly enough that it could even shut it down and thus cause a shift in the climate of Europe severe enough to cause another Little Ice Age. To answer the question about whether global warming could cause another ice age, I have divided this paper into segments. The first will explain what the thermohaline circulation cycle is. Next, I will look at the last interglacial period and observe what the conditions were like especially in respect to the THC....   [tags: Science Global Warming Climate Change] 1598 words

Wind Power as an Alternative Energy Source - Wind Power as an Alternate Energy Source Graphics not Included ABSTRACT The United States' main source of energy is currently fossil fuels. However, we know that fossil fuel supply continues to deplete and sooner or later, the United States will need to resort to a new source of energy. This report hopes to explore the advantages and disadvantages of wind power using model regions. These regions have experience in using wind power, which may help us determine whether or not it is a suitable source of energy when fossil fuels are completely drained....   [tags: Energy Power Global Warming]

Global Warming Essay: Environmental Effects -      The greenhouse effect and global warming are issues that are talked about by geologists all the time. The greenhouse effect is a natural process that keeps the earth at temperatures that are livable. Energy from the sun warms the earth when its heat rays are absorbed by greenhouse gasses and become trapped in the atmosphere. Some of the most common greenhouse gasses are water vapor, carbon dioxide, and methane. If there were no greenhouse gasses, very few rays would be absorbed and the earth would be extremely cold....   [tags: Environment Global Warming Climate Change]

In the opening paragraph of Lindzen’s article, he says outright that the panic associated with climate change is unwarranted. He explains why he feels this way in an almost paranoid and conspiracy theorist manner. He claims that “Such hysteria simply represents the scientific illiteracy of much of the public, the susceptibility of the public to the substitution of repetition for truth, and the exploitation of these weaknesses by politicians, environmental promoters, and, after 20 years of media drum beating, many others as well.” This statement may interest a limited number of people, but it attacks the majority of his audience, the general public....   [tags: Global Warming Essay]

Global Warming, from Jean Baptiste Joseph Fourier's Discovery to Today's Questions - Jean Baptiste Joseph Fourier, a mathematician and physicist, discovered the concept of “global warming” in the 19th century while studying how Earth receives energy from the sun. According to his published theory in 1822, “General Remarks on the Temperature of the Terrestrial Globe and Planetary Spaces,” Fourier recognized how the sun’s heated energy, absorbed by Earth’s surface, and radiated back toward space, became trapped in the atmosphere by gases creating a lasting warming effect. He concluded the more gases in the atmosphere, the warmer Earth’s atmosphere became....   [tags: Jean Baptiste Joseph Fourier, global warming] 1832 words

Global Warming - Global Warming Global Warming, aside from pollution is one of scientists biggest concerns. Global Warming is caused by the Greenhouse effect. There are 4 steps in the Greenhouse effect process. The first is, sunlight radiates from the sun, through space, to the Earth’s atmosphere. The second is, sunlight enters the atmosphere and hits the Earth. Some of that sunlight turns into heat energy in the form of infrared light.

The greenhouse effect is a natural process that keeps the earth at temperatures that are livable. What does the greenhouse effect have to do with global warming. When humans release gases into the air, the greenhouse effect will alter the temperature of the earth. More gases in the atmosphere means the earth will start to get warmer, and the result is global warming. On the other hand, if there was no greenhouse effect, the earth would be too cold for humans to comfortably exist....   [tags: Environmental Global Climate Change]
