Some unenlightened individuals insist global warming does not exist because recent winters have reached record-breaking temperatures; however, global warming does not pertain strictly to heat. It relates to the extremes in temperature differences, both hot and cold, proving the issue does exist. With the temperature anomaly significantly increasing from a steady 0.0 in 1940-1980s to 0.7 in 2016, “97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities”(NASA) To clarify, weather is the “conditions of the atmosphere are over a short period of time, and climate is how the atmosphere "behaves" over relatively long periods of time”(NASA). Others simply claim there is not enough evidence proving climate change, therefore reject the problem. A study done on “Singapore Students’ Misconception of Climate Change” by Chew-Hung Chang explores the concepts and processes of climate change. Although they had an idea of what it was, their knowledge “was composed of incomplete and incorrect elements.” (Chang). Improving this problem requires taking care of the environment, which most humans take for granted and are too lazy to care and/or try. There are arguments which state climate change is not a priority compared to other issues. However, ignoring climate change can lead to the death of our earth, and without it, there would be no additional issues because all of humanity will have been wiped
Climate change is a big issue in our day and age, although there are some people who are not don’t seem to fully grasp the idea of climate changer, while other just don't believe that climate change is actually real. Climate change has been proven by scientist that its presence is real and severely effecting our planet with both short term and long term affects. The most obvious sign of climate change is seen in the melting of the glaciers, the changing water and atmospheric temperatures. It is also proven that it is us humans that are the most greatly responsible for global warming, in the past 150 years climate change has been increasing substantially. We are slowly starting to see the effects global warming is having, rising sea levels, temperature warming, prolonged droughts, increase amount of forest fires, pest infestations, increasing breathing problems, and extreme whether conditions. All this caused by certain of our action, such as, greenhouse gas emissions, and fuel consumption.
Climate change has been nothing, but controversial in the last fifty years. Climate change is a change in the average weather of a region or city. Scientists have opted to use the term "climate change" instead of global warming because as the Earth's average temperature changes, winds and ocean currents move heat around the globe in ways that can cool some areas, as well as warm others. There is an ongoing dispute about the effects of humans on the global climate and about what policies should be implemented to avoid possible undesirable effects of climate change. Ninety-seven percent of published scientific research concluded that climate change is real, problematic for the planet, and has been exacerbated by human activity. But what about the three percent that contradicts that?
We often hear the words “global warming” and “climate change” on the news and in politics, but no one seems to explain what they really are and the major effects they are having on the world. We just know that they are “bad” and needs to be “stopped”. What really is climate change and how has it come to be such a major problem in today’s world?
Climate change has become a very sore subject for many scientists all around the world. There are some people that believe climate change and global warming are just a simple myths for gullible people, that humans have no affect at all on how our environment is changing. On the other hand, it is also told that 97% of papers taking a side on global climate change caused by humans agree that it is happening (Wayne). Many people read the evidence and can clearly see that humans are causing climate change not only to speed up but cause so many things to change in our environment as a result of it.
There is a quote “Don’t blow it- good planets are hard to find”, which can be send out as a reminder to human beings in light of the current climate changes happening all around. Climate change is an ongoing and a slow process and it can be seen throughout the history of the earth from the Paleozoic era to the Ice age to the current day. In the past climate changed over millions of years and was due to natural phenomenon so the species had ample time to evolve and adjust to the change. But the recent change in earth’s atmosphere has been rapid. In the last two decades climate change has occurred exponentially due to human activity. Human beings through deforestation, increase emission of greenhouse gas and industrial development have caused a rapid climate change, endangering his own life and that of other species on the planet, and making it inhospitable for future generations.
Climate change has been active since the first days of Earth. Under definition climate change means “a long-term change in the earth's climate, especially a change due to an increase in the average atmospheric temperature.” (Dictionary). Climate change can be seen making an impact all over the world. There are many theories and beliefs as to why the climate is currently changing, but there is no hard evidence that makes the real cause of climate change clear. There are many possible causes to the changes in climate that we see, but none are known for sure. These possible causes include global warming, such as burning fossil fuels, and even solar related issues such as the position of earth and our sun. We know climate change is occurring because of unusual changes that are currently happening on our planet right in front of our eyes. Drought, polar ice caps melting, the extinction of animals, floods, and food and water shortages, are just a few of these abnormal changes. Majority of average day people do not take climate change seriously, they just don't see it as a grave issue. We should really start seeing it as one, or these brutal and possibly fatal surges of odd weather will continue to get worse.
Climate change is defined as “a long- term change in the earth’s climate, especially a change due to an increase in the average atmospheric temperature” (). In the last century the average global temperature increased by more than 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit. There have also been other changes in weather in climate, many places have experienced changes in rainfall, severe heat waves, ice caps melting, and sea levels rising. Although there are natural factors that effect the earth’s warming, global warming is primarily a result of greenhouse gas emissions from human activities. Some societies make disastrous decisions, and the world is on its way to making some disastrous decisions. This paper argues that Americans are blind to climate change and
After listening to the recent republican debate, I couldn 't help but notice the time that was devoted to the topic of climate change. It was brought up but gets quickly pushed aside for other “serious” topics. After hearing the thoughtless discussion, I was asking myself the same questions. Is climate change worth discussing? Is it real? Does anyone care? Can we fix it? I always ask myself but I never change my viewpoint. It 's real, it is worth discussing, and everyone should care. This is a huge issue that doesn 't get talked about and when it is talked about, it gets overlooked. Whether or not we can fix it is up to the people. Every time I mention climate change to my friends it soon becomes a topic for the people who care. I 've
“Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era and of human civilization” (Jenkins). Whether climate change is real or not has highly been debated among scientists and politicians. In his article, “Is Climate Change Real,” science and political journalist Chris Mooney concludes that skeptics of climate change are influenced by political beliefs and economic interests; moreover, science and politics are interconnected because the government provide funds for scientists to continue their research and use their conclusions to support the political beliefs they belong to. Bottum and Anderson, in their article, “Unchanging Science,” describe climate change as cyclic and claim there is no way to demonstrate it. In Contrast, Sarah Laskow, in her article, “Debunking Green living: Combatting Climate Change Requires Lifestyle Changes, Not Organic Products” purports climate change is real and in order to combat this issue, individuals will have to make modifications to their lifestyles. The existence of climate change is supported by scientific evidence that shows it has worsened over the past century due to the rise of sea level, human expansion of the greenhouse effect, and economic interests; therefore, individuals, along with the government must take steps to prevent further disaster of climate change.
There are still some believers that support that climate change is not real and that they are just made up facts so people can grab the opportunity to make money with new products that will help the world to become “cleaner.” Their arguments are that the earth always had these types of climate changes just like a natural cycle. When asked about if there is any link on how in the past decades, when humans started using fossil fuels and the changes became worst and worst, they come with a response that it is just a
What’s happening in our planet? When we talk about our planet it’s to talk about climate change, and how it is affecting us, but what about who is provoking the climate change. The climate of our planet has changed in the last decades, and the earth is overheating more every year. The climate change of the planet has taken millions of lives, and the same humans have provoked this devastating change on our planet. We are consuming our own home and the home of other species. Climatic change passes from being a curiosity to a global problem. Climate change has existed from the beginning of the creation of the earth until the last global glaciation, but those changes have been naturally. Nowadays, human are concern more about economic
I decided that I am voting for Dr. Jill Stein from the Green Party because I believe she has the most compelling argument regarding climate change in the United States. I will not be voting for Donald Trump, a Republican candidate, because his ideas are not plausible. I firmly believe climate change is an extreme threat that needs to be taken seriously. If we keep ignoring it and do not take the necessary actions needed, the environment is going to suffer. Trump has made claims before that this is a hoax, when there is clear scientific evidence saying that our planet is being abused. These aggressive statements and viewpoints are not ideal for a potential leader. If he does not care about something this crucial, what else is he going to ignore?
The topic of climate change is frequently discussed, yet so widely misunderstood. The food you endorse, being meat and dairy products, are the leading factors to our world’s rapid decline. The meat and dairy industries are the main culprits of climate change. This is due to the buildup of greenhouse gas emissions, and an unsettling increase in atmospheric carbon levels. The longevity of our planet and species is more important than consuming meat and or dairy products for momentary pleasure.
Climate change has been an extremely controversial topic in recent history and continues to create much debate today. Many questions concerning climate change’s origins and its potential affect on the globe are not fully understood and remain unanswered. What is climate change? Is climate change happening? Is it a natural cycle of the world or are there other catalysts involved such as human activity? What proof is there? What data correlations show climate change is accelerated by humans? How serious is climate change and how will it affect the future of our globe? What are we doing to address climate change? Should we really be concerned about climate change? Questions such as these have made climate change a very serious issue in today’s world and created the ideology of climatism. The issue of climate change has affected many different aspects of our lives and the world we live in. Policymaking, human activism, technologies, emission control, global warming, alternative energy sources and many other things have been greatly affected by the mania of climate change. This research report will present climate change in a light of common sense and rationality that will take a grounded discussion of the science behind climate change, global warming, human activity, and how the ideology of climatism has corrupted and driven the actions to combat climate change.
