They predict that by 2100 sea levels will have risen an average of about 10 to 23 inches (nrdc.org). Between the months of January and March of 2002, a piece of the Larsen B shelf in Antarctica collapsed. The Piece of the ice shelf was the size of Rhode Island, scientist found this surprising and alarming because it just proves that global warming is really affecting us even if we can’t see it happening. There are many contributing factors in what is really causing global warming. Scientist believe that the number one cause of global warming is humans.
Global Warming, much of what does or does not happen forty years from now rests on our actions or inactions taken between now and then. The crucial question is whether we should pour all our resources into mitigation – reducing our carbon emissions. According to scientists who study the climate there are other environmental problems; “we now face a global crises in land use and agriculture that could undermine the health, security, and sustainability of our civilization”. Rather than worry too much about emissions, we should accept the world is going to get warmer anyway and adapt to global warming by building better flood defenses and developing drought resistant crops. We cannot dispute that automobiles, factories, and power plants, displace an unprecedented twenty tons of carbon monoxide - per person - per year.
Rising global temperatures, he explained, are expected to raise sea levels and could alter forests, crop yields and water supply. I was surprised at how knowledgeable Adam was on the topic. While I also believe that global warming is a potential danger and disregard skeptics theories, my understanding of the topic is not as extensive as his. Adam and I went to the same high school and lived in the same town, so what set us apart? This question was answered when Adam told me about the thre... ... middle of paper ... ... listen to many congressmen talk about the issue, Adam explained.
While most people do not realize the worse effects of rising the earth's temperature, the researchers try to illustrate the impact of changing the earth's temperature on the future of the next generations on this plant(1). Clearly, people could notice that earth's weather has varied several times during the last few decades(1). Because of the effects of Global Warming, winter season become warmer and warmer. These effects lead to many modifications on earth's climate. In our days, the researchers are working hardly to go ahead in their studies' and obtain the reasons and the impacts of Global Warming and discover the best solution for this dilemma.
Global warming has been a huge topic in recent years around the world. There are only two factors that could be causing global warming: Mother Nature or the human population. Humans are the reason why our earth temperatures are rising and if we do not do anything to stop the temperatures from rising; it will eventually become impossible for human life to survive on earth. Although humans do play a huge influence on Global Warming, so does Mother Nature. The increases in earth’s temperatures are causing many glacial ice caps to begin to diminish.
According to Jan Corfee-Morlot, Mark Maslin and Jacquelin Burgess “global warming was officially more than 100 years ago.” (2007, p. 2745). Nevertheless, this issue is not getting the appropriate attention that deserves. For many individuals global warming is not a serious problem and they don’t really believe that global warming is happening right now. However, “Each Passing day brings yet more evidence that we are now facing a planetary emergency, a climate crisis demands immediate attention.” (Gore, 2007). Some of these evidences includes ice rising reduction seas and, for the same reason a decline in polar bear population.
Like I explained before, global warming causes climate change, and experts like Al Gore say that extreme weather patterns are a result of global warming, which is causing climate change. Also, according to National Geographic, “Average temperatures have climbed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.8 degree Celsius) around the world since 1880, much of this in recent decades, according to NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies.” This is basically showing ho... ... middle of paper ... ...ooling. Scientists also discovered that aerosols wouldn't cause global cooling, but instead they would cause global warming. Finally, shortly after J. Murray Mitchell's research was published, scientists discovered that his trends were not global. The global cooling idea was relevant in the Northern Hemisphere, but the Southern Hemisphere was proven to be warming, not cooling.
Even if we were to do “everything possible to make ourselves lean and efficient” the research indicates that is “‘improbable’ that we’d be able to stop short of 650 parts per million [of carbon dioxide],” nearly twice the acceptable amount (McKibben 2010, 13). The author also believes that the changes of global warming are permanent because we can’t reclaim what we are losing. The rainforest, coral reefs, and glacial ice are disappearing and “Once trends like this get rolling, we can’t slow them. We don’t know how to refreeze the Arctic or regrow a rain forest” (McKibben 2010, 28). According to McKibben, the world has reached this point, at least in part, because we have already surpassed the acceptable amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which 350 parts per million.
When the arctic will melt and the counters that are nearby the arctic will sink. The countries that far from arctic will have drought, and there will not have water. In many years, in my hometown were many trees that live without water it was in cool weather. And the weather was same as the U.S weather’s but when the oil companies have come all trees could not live because of companies makes hot weather. However, global warming affects the economies because the increasing global warming decreases the environmentally economy.
Now, imagine that your freezer is the Earth. What your freezer has just experienced is similar to what happens to the Earth during global warming. Those who believe in global warming warn that it causes a significant rise in temperature in the Earth's atmosphere and oceans, but after doing much research on the topic, I have discovered that the threat of global warming is a bogus one. If the Earth's atmosphere was truly rising in temperature, we would see a significant rise in ice sheets melting, just like the ice cubes melted, but that is not occurring. In saying that global warming is occurring, scientists are just exaggerating that fact.
