While many people consume an excess of energy that produces carbon dioxide, the issue of global warming becomes more critical. Since global warming is a severe problem in the world, Bill McKibben wrote the article about the climate change, “The Reckoning.” He tells that people need to care the three important numbers that relate to global warming. He suggests people to know who make carbon dioxide and what are some effects on the atmosphere. On the other hand, The Wall Street Journal published the article, “No Need to Panic About Global Warming,” which tells people not to worry about it and actually carbon dioxide has only little effect on the atmosphere. McKibben’s essay is more successful at developing his argument because it has sufficient and detailed scientific evidences to support his thesis, while The Wall Street Journal only argues superficially and tells the surface of the global warming with deficient in-depth information.
Global Warming is an increase in the average temperature around the world. Scientists have been able to trace the global climate and concluded that over the last ten thousand years, the climate of the earth has been relatively constant. In the twentieth century, the global temperature increased 0.740°C. The change in the warming, and cooling, of average global temperatures cause climate change, a change related to climate patterns such as temperatures, rainfall, wind and humidity. This flux in temperature is affected by multiple factors making it hard to determine the true source of problem.

When discussing the topic of climate change, it is essential to begin with a brief definition of climate change to know exactly what it is. Anup Shah of globalissues.org defines climate change as “an increase in average global temperatures…caused by the increase in greenhouse gasses such as Carbon Dioxide, or CO2” (Shah, 2014). This process, of course, is global warming which, in turn, leads to climate change. Although climate change is considered one of the most significant threats facing the world today, there are many groups doing what they can to assist in slowing the climate change process or potentially halt it all together. This process, however, can be challenging as there are issues that stand as barriers that we as nations and world citizens need to work on together to change (The global climate, 2013).
Global Warming Global warming has become on of the most controversial issues in the media today. While most of the Western world countries have generally accepted the premise that man's chemical emissions in the atmosphere can and are affected by the world’s climate patterns, in the United States, the issue has become so politicized with many republicans challenging the science behind the theory. Global warming is a greenhouse effect whereby gases are trapped on the earth’s surface causing it to heat up (Maslin 14). It is based on the worldwide temperature records that have been maintained by human beings through their activities since the 1880,s. In addition, global warming is not only caused by human activities only but also through climate changes in solar radiance.
This will not be nearly as expensive as coping with the costs of global warming. Controlling populations is also a necessity in order to control the consumption of energy and fossil fuels, but you could write a whole other paper on if they could implement those laws and what human rights that interferes with. Through the eyes of most scientists, global warming is seen as a very serious and severe threat. Global warming is caused by five naturally occurring atmospheric gases, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone and water vapor, which are responsible for the greenhouse effect. The consumption of fossil fuels such as oil, coal, and natural gas are the main way these gases are emitted to the atmosphere.
Global Warming Introduction The environmental situation in the world is worsening on a regular basis mostly due to the pollution caused by human-made activities. The global warming and climate change do not only affect people’s health and nature but also the economy forcing people to invent ways in order to reduce the negative impact of this natural catastrophe. This paper will describe the nature of global warming, as well as the basic causes and effects of this continuous rise of the Earth’s temperature and explain how people can stop this process contributing to the clean and safe planet not only for the present but also for the future generations. Scientists all over the world are preoccupied with the problem of global warming which can lead to disastrous consequences. That is why people should curb the global warming and climate change evaluating the current situation properly and correctly.
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.
