The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reported North America, Latin America, Europe, Arica, and Asia will be the most impacted regions of global change. North America will have a 5-20 percent decrease in snow in the western mountains, and the cities with heat waves will continue to have longer and hotter heat waves.
The heat-trapping property of this gas is undisputed. Energy burned to run cars and trucks, heat homes and businesses, and power factories are some factors responsible for the increased concentration of carbon dioxide. “Human beings are causing the release of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to the atmosphere at rates much faster than the earth can cycle them,” Adam explained. Too great a concentration of greenhouse gases can have dramatic effects on climate and significant repercussions on the world around us. Rising global temperatures, he explained, are expected to raise sea levels and could alter forests, crop yields and water supply.
The Problem of Global Warming "The climate of the Earth is changing" (Melillo 1999:183). These words sum up exactly what is happening to the environment today; it is changing. Yet, what has brought on this change? There are many factors that contribute to climate change, however, the most important one that has become a very relevant issue to humans today is global warming. Global warming is the increase in the Earth's average surface temperature from an increase of greenhouse gases (primarily Carbon Dioxide) in the atmosphere.
What is Global Warming really and What are the effect? Global Warming is an increase in the earth’s atmospheric and oceanic temperatures widely predicted to occur due to an increase in the greenhouse effect resulting especially from pollution. According to S.M. Enzler MSc from the article History of greenhouse effect and global warming, Svante Arrhenius was a Swedish scientist that was the first to claim in 1896 that fossil fuel combustion may eventually result in enhanced global warming. Global Warming have gotten worse since the first record keeping in 1880.
He and Thomas Chamberlin premeditated that human activities could warm the earth by adding carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. This research was a by-product of research of whether carbon dioxide would explain the causes of the great Ice Ages. This was not actually verified until 1987.” (Enzler) Some people believe that global warming does not exist. There is proven facts about global warning. “The major scientific agencies of the United States — including the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Oceanic and Atmos... ... middle of paper ... ...existed too.
Earth has its cooling and heating periods. But scientist fear that the heating periods are happening faster than usual to because of the manmade emissions. There are natural causes that cause climate change but the increase in emissions from man made products has increased climate change drastically than it’s usual because of our deforestation, burning of fossil fuels, and intensive farming.
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.
Global warming is the most dangerous phenomenal, because it can cause some other phenomenal by changing the ecological balance. As we know, each problem has a solution and Global Warming is one of the problems that have some suggested solution after studying the problems by the scientists. Global warming is the increase of the amount of the Greenhouse gases, the gases that keep the sun heat in the atmosphere, more than the natural state. The increase of the Greenhouse gases causes a rise in the average climate of the planet. Human activities cause the greenhouse gases to accumulate in the atmosphere, and cause an increase in the global warming.
It’s quite alarming how global warming affects the world. Imagine the world’s coolest places, the Arctic and Antarctica with its ice melting and pouring significant amount of water to the sea. The sea levels are rising fast, weather conditions change rapidly and sometimes getting more unpredictable. Climate is dependent to various factors like how much sunlight certain area receives including the height above sea level. The land shape likewise affects climate and the distance of the land from the oceans.
The ice caps are melting from the heat from the sun, which is leaving many polar bears stranded in the middle of the ocean. The huge glaciers are also getting heated, which is making them break apart, causing disruption to the waters. Is global warming really happening? Yes, it is! Global warming is just like it sounds.
