Ben Bova wrote an article “Facts Show Global Warming is Real” for naplenews.com. Bova puts fourth numerous facts that tap into your brain and make you think about your impact on the environment and what is occurring around the world with our planet. Bova uses statistics from the NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, which has had a questionable past. Bova states that the Earth is warming, he cite...

...ent influenced news networks. The director of an environmental group known as Greenpeace stepped down because of the group’s willingness to abandon science for political agendas. Patrick Moore left his group which he was in charge of and co-founded because of these reasons they were no longer for the environment.
In my opinion after reading and dissecting both of these articles for the facts they present, my outlook has not changed, global warming is a farce backed by no solid scientific evidence. The Earth is not a statue, temperature change is vital over the course of time, and we as citizens of the world are no more responsible for these changes then the smallest termite or the largest volcanic ranges. The hype of Global Warming is not different then the politicians and news networks trying to influence a mob mentality, to pass false ideas to the public.

- Throughout the last 650,000 years, the Earth has faced a change in its climate. There is evidence from the change in the Earth’s orbit and the extent of solar energy that it collects. It is because of Global Warming. Specifically, according to the chart below, carbon dioxide has never reached above 300 ppm for the last 650,000 years and currently as of the year 2013, we have exceeded that limit to almost 400 ppm (Evidence for Global Warming). What a drastic change. Another obvious answer that supports global warming is occurring is the increase in sea level, ocean temperatures, and humidity and the decrease in glaciers and snow cover....

- ... It is predicted that by 2050 we could reach 500ppm unless we use alternate and safe forms of energy. This is concerning because our current CO2 emissions come from fossil fuels that are used to produced 80% of the world’s energy, and coal puts the most CO2 into the air out of all fossil fuels. The US emits 2 billion tons of CO2 in the air per year and this is only 25% of the world’s total emissions. Coal is the main source of power and it takes a lot of it to keep the world moving. Five 180 foot tall high boilers use 25 tons of coal each minute, producing more than 3,000 mega watts of electricity.... [tags: CO2 emissions,environment, consumption]

- Glaciers, Ice and Global Warming Glaciers are one of the most fundamental phenomenon on the planet, and much of their purpose and impact on earth has been well documented and published. Ice sheets, Ice Caps and Glaciers trap nearly 90% of the world's fresh water, and are replenished by snowfall each year. Their existence on this planet dates back 650,000,000 years and yet they are always moving, always shifting and always melting. Before, human existence and even during the brief era of humans, ice dominated all of the earth's landmass and have regulated, created and altered many of the landscapes around the world....

- Global Warming Abstract The world's scientific experts agree that industrial and land use activities are having an adverse impact on our climate. Burning of fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and gasoline creates global warming pollution that acts as the glass in a greenhouse, reflecting heat back toward the Earth and warming our climate. If we do not take steps now to reduce our emissions of global warming pollution, we will suffer serious environmental, public health, and economic repercussions....

- Global Warming Our planet's atmosphere traps energy just like a greenhouse. Energy from the Sun can enter the Earth’s atmosphere, but not all of it can easily find its way out again. What blocks the Sun’s energy from escaping from the Earth. Unlike a greenhouse, the Earth does not have a layer of glass over it. Instead, molecules in our atmosphere called greenhouse gasses absorb the heat. Greenhouse gasses include water vapor, methane, ozone, nitrous oxide, and carbon dioxide.... [tags: Papers]

- One of the most debated topics in twenty-first century politics is energy. As the world has progressively improved in technology, so has our dependence on energy. Energy comes from many sources, such as non-renewable and renewable energy. Non-renewable energy pertains to fossil fuel (coal and oil), natural gas, and nuclear. Renewable energy resources are hydro, wind, and solar. Since the industrial revolution most of the energy used has been non-renewable energy. These non-renewable energy sources have caused ecological problems, although there is disagreement to the extent.... [tags: Global warming, Carbon dioxide, Peak oil]

- Climate Change and Humanity 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....

- Global Warming Climate change is neither new nor unusual. Throughout the history of the earth, the average surface temperature, climate and greenhouse gas concentrations have changed, sometimes gradually other times quite sharply. During the past 10,000 years the earth has been in an interglacial period with a fairly stable climate, surface temperature, and greenhouse gas concentration1. The problem that has arisen in recent times is when scientists analyze the past 150 years, especially the last 50.... [tags: Environment Global Warming Climate Change]

- Global Warming Mission Plan a. Analysis of the Problem 1. History of the Problem Some scientist's have been concerned since 1896 about what might happen if there were 5.5 billion tons carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. In 1961 a British scientist did an experiment showing that the carbon in the air was absorbing some of the sun's radiation. Afterward a Swedish scientist, Suante Arrhenius, found out if the radiation of the sun was trapped in the carbon dioxide the temperature of the earth would increase by 1-2 degrees....

- Global Warming For the last 20 years or so the subject of global warming has spawned heated debate among the world’s brightest minds. Its causes and effects, if either actually exists, have been hotly debated. The most popular hypothesis is called the greenhouse effect with the agreed upon cause being green house gasses. These gasses are all naturally occurring and include water vapor, methane, oxygen, and the now infamous carbon dioxide. Greenhouse gasses exist in the atmosphere and have an effect on our global weather.... [tags: Environment Global Warming Climate Change]
