- Climate change may be defined as a change in global or regional climate patterns. Jones (1986) first identified climate change in 1986. He confirmed that the climate has been changing since the early days of industrialisation. The issue of climate change is important due to the devastating effect it may have on people’s lives. Adaptation to climate change is highly crucial to survive therefore, its unpredictability is fatal. However, there are claims that climate change is a myth, which mostly is from multi-national companies that are highly dependent on fossil fuels, meaning that they are to blame for climate change....   [tags: Greenhouse gas, Carbon dioxide, Global warming]

The Effects Of Global Warming On The Environment

- Many people are very concerned about the changes seen in the earth’s climate. Some believe the changes are naturally caused, but these changes that are occurring are not natural, they are caused by humans. Human activities that contribute to global warming include deforestation, air pollution, and burning fossil fuels. Global warming creates many problems for the environment, and humans are the cause of it. Deforestation, also known as logging, drives environmental change. Deforestation is the clearing of trees; transforming a forest into cleared land....   [tags: Global warming, Carbon dioxide, Greenhouse gas]

- Wood Shortage Global warming has been an ongoing battle in the world that has been used in excuses of people who love nature. It has been proven to the world that trees are a renewable resource that will not hurt the environment. Wood is a strong and dependable material that can decompose and become nature again. The bad is how destructive it is to nature by taking all the lumber away, but in a short amount of time the damage can be healed. Even though global warming and logging are said to be depleting our wood supply, using wood for construction is important because wood is the best material to use for construction since it is readily available....   [tags: Fossil fuel, Carbon dioxide, Global warming]

- Parties who feel that the Earth is not warming claim that the global average temperatures have not gone up since 1998. The argument follows the idea that the greenhouse effect would not make each year hotter than the previous one since there are numerous processes that impact the global average temperatures and climate, for instance, the internal variability in the climate system, changes in solar forcing, and anthropogenic increase in atmospheric greenhouse gases. There thus follow periods of relatively stable, or even cooler, temperatures....   [tags: Climate change, Global warming, Carbon dioxide]

Topic According to the article “What is Global Warming?” on National Geographic, global warming is the rapid increase in average global temperatures due to greenhouse gases (pars.1-4). Greenhouse gases, like CO2, are released into the Earth’s atmosphere by burning fossil fuels or naturally. The increase of greenhouse gases traps heat in the Earth’s atmosphere, causing average global temperatures to increase rapidly. A rise in average global temperatures leads to negative effects such as rising sea levels, melting of glaciers, and alterations in long-term weather patterns, also known as climate change (“What is Global Warming” pars....   [tags: Global warming, Climate change, Earth, Atmosphere]

People’s actions are resulting in devastating impacts to the environment. Unfortunately, not everyone concurs to this reasoning. Even with empirical data presented, there are skeptics who attribute climate change to natural causes rather than man-made causes.
