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.
A compelling argument is presented by the scientists who work for CEI who believe that global warming is a bunch of nonsense that the government wants the public to believe. I believe that instead of believing what the government tells us is true about global warming, we should take action and find the truth ourselves. My argument will begin with an analysis of ... ... middle of paper ... ...hange.” The EPA: Climate Change- Science. EPA, 2011. Web, 9 Nov. 2011.
Global Warming and The Environment Global warming is a term used to describe a gradual increase in the average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and its oceans (All About Global Warming, 2007, para.1). There is no doubt this is an important matter that will impact planet earth for many years to come. Global warming is a critical issue that impacts the entire world and the potential consequences caused by it will have a negative impact if human contribution is not reduced. Although many people disagree with the causes and outcomes, there is certainly enough information available to support the argument. At this time, global warming is said to be a crisis with carbon and emissions of Co2 being made out to be the culprit (Turpin, 2007, p.30).

The issues surrounding Global Warming or Anthropogenic Warming introduce several different hypotheses. One is the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) hypotheses which has become the most looked at theory. It supports the claim that climate change is due largely in part because of human activities. It also claims that human activity will eventually bring the world to an end. While the AGW is being argued there is also the issue of what is called the Kyoto Protocol which many scientists have urged the U.S. government “not to sign”, saying that the increase in Greenhouse Gases is a result of increased atmospheric carbon dioxide caused environmentally.
Global Warming Gridlock casts light on the complexity of policy making on an international scale. Global warming is much more than just an issue for the United States; it encompasses all nations that make up the globe and unfortunately has no clear timeline. This mandates the need for international environmental policy, but even with a great deal of support from both science and the public attempts at these types of policies have largely proved unsuccessful. Victor takes the time in his book to outline the causes of failed policy in addition to solutions that may help make successful policymaking. There are various ideas for what is the best policy regarding climate change, and ultimately it relies on international efforts to mitigate some of the worst effects caused by climate change.
