Global warming is a scientific, political, and controversial topic. Some believe it is catastrophic, a slow moving killer hiding in the shadows. Others do not even think twice about it as they race by in a Hummer. Global warming is the gradual increase of temperature throughout different climates. It is caused by the greenhouse gas effect in which greenhouse gases, like methane and carbon dioxide, reflect sunlight back and forth. This reflected ultraviolet light bounces between the earth and the ozone layer and becomes trapped, resulting in a gradual rise of temperature. Over time, the slow rise of temperature causes new climates throughout the globe. The article “What Megablazes Tell Us About the Fiery Future of Climate Change” by Tim Dickinson
Global warming is an increasing threat to the Earth and future generations. Global warming, sometimes called climate change, is the name given to the process of heat getting trapped in the atmosphere and damaging the environment. Greenhouse gases cause heat to gets stuck in the atmosphere by trapping the sun’s rays. When the sun’s rays enter the Earth, they should bounce back into the atmosphere. Instead the gases trap them, causing the temperature to rise. In the past the temperature of the Earth has risen slowly and evenly but recently the temperature has risen faster. The temperature of the Earth has risen at least one degree Fahrenheit during the twentieth century. If global warming is not controlled there are serious consequences. People, animals, and plants could be living in an atmosphere that is not suitable for sustaining healthy lives.
The Environmentalists claim the science is settled, and that any actions taken to prove otherwise will be unfruitful. They do this to turn public attention away from the fact that much of their data is purposely taken out of context, manipulated, or made up in order to prove that Manmade Global Warming exists. In fact, there is more evidence showing that the rise in temperatures may be due to solar activity or part of the Earth’s natural climate fluctuations, than to support that it is caused by greenhouse gases generated by humans.
Evolution is a theory and that is undeniable even if there is evidence to support the claim it can not be proven as fact. While theoretical knowledge may seem logical and almost undeniable it is still only theoretical. Still, there are other issues that are impaired by an emotional connection to a belief or idea that limit the production of knowledge and these issues are not theoretical it is practical and justifiable knowledge. For this point, global warming will be used as a scientific truth that is denied due to desire and emotional connections to political causes. The United States Republican party denies the fact that Global Warming is an issue for a variety of reasons. One of these reasons is the greed they have that is fueled by their desire for money and power. Unlike evolution, global warming can be proven with quantitative data and it can be seen in everyday life. There is no way to deny it but because of emotion, the idea is dismissed. The production of knowledge, in this case, is severely limited by emotion yet when emotion is set aside reason allows the production of knowledge to
Have you ever walk outside in the middle of a hot summer and wonder why each year it’s getting hotter or why there is less snow each winter? Have you heard of global warming? Icebergs melting? Sea level rising? Polar bears dying? This is probably not new to anyone. Everyone could have heard of global warming a million times on TV or news. Though, many people do not know or do not have much knowledge on what are the causes of global warming. Greenhouse gases is the cause of global warming which leads to global climate change that affect the environment, sociopolitical, and economic all over the world. Though, the effects of global climate change lead to many consequences, it can be slow down by reducing CO2 emissions
In recent years, global warming is a topic that has received much attention. It’s is a gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide and other pollutants, which also known as the green house effect. Global warming can negatively affect the earth's delicate ecosystems. It has been linked to dangerous new weather patterns, the extinction of plant and animal species and so many others bad effects.
Well at least as far as the Bush II administration was concerned. B. Kiwanuka. (2015). Global warming remains an issue of widespread political debate, sometimes split along party political lines, especially in the United States. Many of the largely settled scientific issues, such as the human responsibility for global warming, remain the subject of politically or economically motivated attempts to downplay, dismiss or deny them – an ideological phenomenon categorized by academics and scientists as climate change denial. Yale Project on Climate Change Communication:
Global warming is the rise in the temperature on the earth’s surface. The planet’s temperature is rising and we are the cause for this. There are a few ways greenhouse gases are responsible for the warming and humans producing them in a variety of ways. Since the 1970s, 90% of the warming has continued on the earth’s surface and in the ocean’s, as well. Even though the oceans dominant role is energy storage, the term global warming is also referred to the rise of temperature in the air and sea at the earth’s surface. Global warming has been rising and the world is being threaten by the effects. “The risk of catastrophic climate change is getting worse, according to a new study from scientists involved with the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).” (Biello) Threats ranging from the deconstruction of coral reefs and serious weather occurrences like droughts, floods and hurricanes. They are becoming more likely as the temperature change is already under its way. Most people thought that global warming would only affect certain species and only parts of the world but nature has been cooperating with our theories of the effects on global warming and climate changes, unfortunately. There are many causes of global warming as in deforestation, most of the warming comes from the combustion of fossil fuels in vehicles, factories and electricity production. The effects are threatening to our lives, the environment, the wildlife is at risk, etc.
Global warming was a scare tactic created by the government in order to enforce grants and programs that would give them money. There is no signs of it actually happening and if it is how can we actually believe what they are saying? There are so
...nd by our position. However, the battle against global warming, GMOs and DDT alarmism is unfortunately far from the end. The alarmist environmental movements have been endorsing these swindles for many years that include some influential groups in the government, science, business and liberal media. Up to this point, the majority of the debates were based on predictions and now we are at the point where the actual facts are showing that the predictions are incorrect. The real picture of these debatable topics are becoming more clear and unless something major occurs in the near future it is going to be difficult for the environmental groups to continue to support their untruthful stories. Solomon’s article proves that today’s governments that used to support the idea of global warming are reconsidering their position and aiming to steer in a different direction.
In a following email, Leonard Bernstein wrote “The scientific basis for the Greenhouse Effect and the potential impact of human emission of greenhouse gases such as CO2 on climate is well established and cannot be denied” (Lewis, 2015). Despite this email by Bernstein and research from other companies, Exxon denied climate change and gave over $30 million to think tanks and researches to “promote climate denial” (Lewis, 2015). When the U.S. decided to participate in the 1997 Kyoto protocol which called for the cut of greenhouse gas emissions, Exxon and similar companies argued that there was “too much uncertainty about global warming to warrant such cuts” (Lewis, 2015). The Union of Concerned Scientists report said that Exxon knew about the relationship between fossil fuels and climate change before the rest of the particular industry and the public (Lewis,
Our planet has managed to survive and thrive for about 4.54 billion years. In the last 2 million years we have caused enough damage and destruction to make our world “broken” beyond repair. We will not be able to get back the world we once had. The reason behind this is global warming, specifically, the increase of the global temperature due to the burning of fossil fuels and the release of greenhouse gas emissions into our atmosphere. If we do not make the issue of global warming a priority in today`s society, our entire way of life will be at risk. There are many reasons why so many people believe global warming should be a concern. Thoroughly examined points include: scientific predictions, rising temperatures, human causes, drastic climate changes and animal adaptations. Though there are several points arguing how global warming should not be a concern, the reality of the matter is that it needs to be taken into consideration on a global scale before it is too late, as to do nothing would have devastating implications on humankind.
“The U.S. media devote significant attention to small numbers of denialists, who claim that scientific consensus assessments, such as those by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), are “exaggerated” and “political” (Freudenburg). The doubt that is felt then by the public is causing setbacks in efforts that are being made to regulate the amount of Greenhouse Gases being released into our atmosphere. In CQ Researcher it was also stated that only 3% of all research dealing with climate change signifies that humans have nothing to do with the envi...
The effects of global warming and climate change can no longer be ignored. Unlike previous species and our ancestors that inhabited the Earth before us, we have the gift of foresight and the scientific, mathematic and engineering knowledge to implement changes to benefit the future and lessen the damage that has already been done. Yet, politics and bureaucracy continuously inject roadblocks when it comes to implementing necessary changes and has historically tried to discredit some of the verifiable evidence regarding global warming and climate change; hindering public knowledge and awareness. We are now coming into a new phase of enlightenment, with society now becoming more aware and acknowledging the dangers humanity faces from global warming and
One of the most substantial problems in the world today is global warming. This gradual warming of the earth is in occurrence at an extremely slow rate but it is happening. Many scientists believe that as human’s work and release greenhouse gases into the earth’s atmosphere, it can become dangerous for the long lasting life of humans and our environment. “Unless we take immediate action, the impacts of global warming will continue to intensify, grow ever more costly and damaging, and increasingly affect the entire planet - including you, your community, and your family” (“Global Warming Impacts”). Everyone should be knowledgeable about global warming and the dangers that it brings to our planet. This essay will examine
