Global warming comes with a plethora of negative outcomes and we need to stop it. Global warming is a serious issue effecting the entire world. Global warming not only affects our weather when it comes to temperature, but also precipitation including rain and snow. Global warming causes negative effects on animals, some species no longer populate certain areas due to climate change and are migrating in order to survive. Scientists say that the sea levels have increased due to the melting of the glaciers.
Temperatures are rising all over the world; ice that has been there for hundreds of years is starting to melt. The oceans are rising and destroying the once stunning coastal regions. Global warming is a serious issue; without a change in our lifestyles our planet will be destroyed before we know it. Even though global warming is affecting our way of life, many still do not understand exactly what it is or what causes it. “Simply defined, global warming is the increase in the average global temperature that has been caused by the presence of certain gasses, called the greenhouse gasses, in earth’s atmosphere.” (Flannery, 2009) While a lot of greenhouse gasses occur naturally, there are many that are man made.
When disasters ensue, proper response must be thoughtfully recognized and relief thoroughly enacted. Without recognition, said disasters still exist - there can be no “blissful ignorance” - and without relief, said disasters do not repair themselves. Global warming, a worldwide disaster, poses a dangerous threat. Large portions of coastal cities will need to relocate, harsh droughts and heat waves will strike, and strong weather systems will develop. These effects will occur globally and affect everyone.

Global warming extremists want us to believe that as global temperatures rise, so do chances of complete extinction of entire species. Natural disasters will become more common, whole continents could one day be under water, and death rates could be at an all time high. This may seem like a bad science fiction novel, but in some ways they might actually be right. At the very least global warming can and will effect humans living in nearly every region. From those living on the coast, to those living in the Artic plains no area of our planet is safe from global warming.
Global warming is an issue facing everyone in the world. It has caused some places to lose they’re homes, and soon many nations will face evacuations. Global warming will cause food and water shortage, and tension between poor and wealthy countries over resources. If more fossil fuels were being burned then it would lead to higher dangers. With the population growing everyday it will cause more challenges of climate and energy will only intensify.
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).
With so many having to use this technology, such as oil, gasoline, coal, whether to power a vehicle, machine, or some other type of object that uses these harmful fuels, it has taken a toll on our planet. People on this planet need to realize the dangers global warming has on the world including the melting of glaciers and the changes in climate, all from harmful emissions given off by humans and their advances in technology.Global warming is the result of human activity, and action must be taken in order to prevent a series of catastrophic events that would forever change life as we know it. The usage of these fuels from technology omits harmful gases such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, along with others. These gases stay in our atmosphere, trapped by the ozone layer and speed up the process of global warming. Many of these toxic gases come from corporations around the world that own industries and factories that pollute our air.
