Global Warming and Climate Change - Global Warming, much of what does or does not happen forty years from now rests on our actions or inactions taken between now and then. The crucial question is whether we should pour all our resources into mitigation – reducing our carbon emissions. According to scientists who study the climate there are other environmental problems; “we now face a global crises in land use and agriculture that could undermine the health, security, and sustainability of our civilization”. Rather than worry too much about emissions, we should accept the world is going to get warmer anyway and adapt to global warming by building better flood defenses and developing drought resistant crops....   [tags: Climate Change Essays]

The Effects of Global Warming - The majority of people on the planet are completely oblivious to the amount of carbon dioxide they produce on a day-to-day basis. The majority of us wake up, maybe drink a cup of coffee, some go to a job, eat a few times, maybe have a little fun, and then go to sleep. Each day goes by and little do we realize that the carbon we produce as humans has a very devastating effect on the world we live in. Global warming is a major problem that affects our atmosphere, agriculture, oceans, and, most importantly, humanity....   [tags: Climate Change] 1105 words

Climate Change and Global Warming - CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions are at an all-time high. In May 2013, the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere exceeded 400 parts per million. This is “approaching the halfway mark between preindustrial amounts and a doubling of those levels” (Washington Post J). This is a very large increase in the amount of CO2 in our atmosphere over a short period of time. One might ask what consequence could come of having such a large volume of CO2 floating around our atmosphere. The Union of Concerned Scientists says that CO2 is considered a greenhouse gas....   [tags: CO2, Greenhouse Gases, Carbon Dioxide]

Global Warming: A Natural Cycle - The main purpose of this text is to explain that the global warming trends that we are hearing so much about these days actually are “part of a natural trend with a cycle that results in elevated climactic temperatures every 1,500 years” (Avery). He provides a historical record through actual ancient record keeping methods, geology, and biology.

Global Warming and Christian Stewardship - There is, perhaps, no more pressing an issue that impacts the future of the human race than the debate over global warming. Whether global warming is occurring as part of a natural cycle of the earth or through CO2 emissions introduced into the atmosphere by mankind, has yet to be empirically proven. However, there is sufficient evidence to suggest that mankind’s contribution may be considerable enough to warrant a change in human habits. According to an article written by Rich Deem, atmospheric CO2 levels indicate a spike of 70 ppm—the quickest rise in CO2 levels over the last 650,000 years (2005)....   [tags: Religion]

Global Warming Position Paper - Although some believe that Global Warming has been created due to manmade pollutants, I believe that Global Warming is a natural process that has been accelerated due to the excess emissions of pollutants from nature and manmade devices into the atmosphere. The world has been said to be on a cycle of global warming and cooling, this process can neither be stopped nor prevented, but it can be accelerated with the addition of non-natural emissions from automobiles and factories; because this is a natural process, even if constraints were to be put on the amount of pollutants released into the air global warming could not be prevented—it could only be slowed....   [tags: Emissions from Pollutants, Nature, Pollution]

They can “push” the climate in the direction of warming or cooling. Changes in atmospheric composition, solar luminosity, volcanic eruptions, and variations in Earth’s orbit around the Sun are examples of external forcings. Over tens of thousands of years, orbital cycles have varied slowly. Presently, they are in an overall cooling trend which would be expected to lead towards a glacial period within the current Ice Age, but the 20th century instrumental temperature record shows a sudden rise in global temperatures....   [tags: temperature, greenhouse effect] 1108 words

This climatic warming occurs because of natural climate cycles that the earth has to go through in order to have a stable climate condition. Global heating and global cooling are nothing new today. There were Ice Ages when most of the world was covered in glaciers and hot steamy times that allowed animals that now live in the tropics to live in almost any continent known today.

Global Warming - “Global warming is an increase in the earth's temperature due to fossil fuels, industry, and agricultural processes caused by human, natural, and other gas emissions” (EPA). Our world has gone through several stages in its lifetime. It takes time to deal and cope with changes, just like anything else. Over the years, the earth has been gradually getting warmer due to pollution. Humans, however, were slow to take the necessary actions to prevent it from getting any worse. Due to the ignorance of people we are on the edge of a very dramatic change, Global Warming....   [tags: Environment, Climate Change, Greenhouse Effect ]

Global Warming - Global warming is the rising of average temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere due to greenhouse gases. Greenhouse gases are gases that trap heat in the atmosphere. The greenhouse effect consists of gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and water vapor insulating the Earth’s surface and helping it maintain warm temperatures. However since there is so much carbon dioxide filling the air the Earth atmosphere absorbs almost all of the suns emission. When the sun heats the earth the atmosphere is supposed to radiate most of the heat but instead it takes all the warmth and uses it to power the Earth causing a buildup of green house gases....   [tags: Climate Change, Environmental Impact]

Global Warming - For decades societies have been concerned about climate change, and in recent years it has sparked a debate as to whether the earth is warming due to causes by humans or through a natural progression. There are scientists on both sides of the debate, but one thing that they can agree on is that the earth is in fact warming. Studies have indicated a rise in the carbon dioxide levels (CO2) in the earth’s atmosphere that can be attributed to the what is known as the greenhouse affect (Simon, Reece, Dickey, 2007)....   [tags: Climate Change, Argumentative Essay]

Global Warming - Everyone is talking about it, and the news is constantly covering it. But nobody ever does anything about it. The “it” is global warming. Global warming has been steadily increasing since the industrial revolution at alarming rates causing extreme weather including droughts, floods, heat waves, and hurricanes, which is a major concern. In fact, it’s increasing at a rate of 10% every year (Ferrey 68).

Global Warming - What is global warming. As defined by Encarta Dictionary it is an increase in the world’s temperatures, believed to be caused in part by greenhouse gases. Holli Riebeek on NASA’s Earth Observatory website describes it like this: “Global warming is the unusually rapid increase in Earth’s average surface temperature over the past century primarily due to the greenhouse gases.” She states, “surface temperatures have risen on average .6 - .9 degrees” in the past hundred years and that, “the rate of temperature increase has nearly doubled in the last 50 years.” She goes a step further by boldly declaring that the gases are the direct result of “people burning fossil fuels” (Riebeek)....   [tags: Environment, Environmental]

Global Warming - The Earth receives energy, light and warmth from the sun. As the earth and the objects on earth become warm, they radiate their warmth back toward space in the form of infrared energy. However, there are gases known as trace gases that make up less than 1% of Earth’s atmosphere which are able to trap some of the outgoing heat. Water vapor is vastly abundant in the atmosphere and generates a blanketing effect that keeps the surface of the earth at a temperature that allows life to exist. In addition to water vapor, carbon dioxide is another trace gas that is naturally present in the atmosphere....   [tags: Climate Change, Argumentative Essay]
