Once an uncommon term used only by scientists and climatologists, the notion of Global warming today is commonly heard but very misunderstood. One might ask, what exactly is global warming and should we care? According to "What is Global Warming?" in LiveScience, global warming is a gradual increase in the temperature of Earth's surface and atmosphere, that has become a world-wide environmental issue.1(Lallanilla,2013) Similarly, this topic is one of great controversy because of widely differing opinions on current global warming rates and the impact by humans.This suggested anthropogenic activity creates carbon dioxide, methane, and other gases that are released by the burning of tropical forests and fossil fuels, powering plants, heating homes, and traveling.2(Kessel,2000) On top of rising temperatures, global warming is feared for its effects on climate change, such as rising sea levels and the melting of glaciers, that will ultimately result in a non-sustainable environment and negative health consequences for mankind. Life on earth depends on climate, and changes in it directly effect the health and well-being of the population, biodiversity, and the delivery of services by ecosystems around the world.
There are many things connected to global warming, all can have bad effects on the society we currently live in. It is a growing concern over the last few decades, about what it is, how it’s caused and the impacts it has on society. Many wonder what the United States government, big corporation even individuals have done to help the environment or even what should be done. What is Global Warming and the causes it. Global warming is the warming of climate from natural and human consumption causes.
It is hard to believe that a collection of human beings can cause destruction to an atmosphere changing the surface temperatures all over the world. Global warming is happening, but the debate between scientists, citizens, and politicians is who is causing it? Fifty years ago we could have questioned this and been skeptical about the findings, but now there is research showing how much of an impact we are putting on species, nature, habitats, and glaciers. Glaciers the sizes of buildings are simply disappearing beneath the ocean. Global warming refers to the recent and ongoing rise in global temperature near the Earth’s surface (Environmental Protection Agency).
Global Warming: “It’s gettin’ hot in here, so take off all your clothes…” The famous words of R&B star, Nelly, are truer than one might think. It really is getting hot in here. The world’s average temperature is rising every year and is expected to be 5 to 10 degrees higher by the end of the century, which is faster than they have increased in the last ten millennia, according to the National Resource Defense Council’s website. But why is this epidemic happening? As the Defense Council states, global warming is caused by carbon dioxide and other types of heat trapping pollution that are collecting like a blanket in the atmosphere, trapping heat from the earth as it tries to radiate back into space.
Global Warming Global warming is the biggest known secret in world. The severity of such a huge problem has caused complete rejection of the situation. Global warming is the root cause of temperature, snow and rainfall, clouds and radiation, atmospheric circulation, and tropical storm changes. As the years pass, the global warming affects intensify. It needs to be talked about!

Introduction Global warming is a topic that has continued to elicit mixed reactions from various fronts. Some academicians are prominent in proving how global warming impacts on natural weather events leading to changes in seasons (Henning 223). The acceptability of rapidly changing global climate is clear, although the level of acceptability varies from region to another and from one individual to the next. Not everyone understands the effects of global warming although they experience these changing in various capacities. Erudite authors have formulated a myriad of models and projections on the impact of rising with some alarmingly terming the trend as leading to life extinction within the next century (Moni 9; Van der Pijl 14; Henning 223).
Resolving the Global Warming Problem "It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else will effect the outcome." Global Warming according to Microsoft Bookshelf nineteen ninety eight edition is " A conjectural greenhouse effect on earth that is attributed to deforestation and industrial air emissions"(MS Bookshelf 98). Global Warming could be one of the most important issues of the century. As global warming becomes more and more of an issue, the factors surrounding global warming need to be dealt with. The world is beginning to show that if something is not done about global warming serious side effects can occur.
We live at a period in time were natural disasters have become a current event in our world. The Earth’s climate is changing, the culprit, global warming. This is what popular media has guided us to believe. What causes global warming, “we do, with the emissions of carbon dioxide we produced”, claimed by the noble prize winning movie, The 11th Hour. Although in reality the Earth’s climate has gone through spikes in climate changes for centuries.
