Religious Tolerance Increases Global Interactions

- In the 1400, Europe was dominantly Christian, but also served as a home to many Muslims and Jews that inhabited the surrounding areas. Europe; however, was the site of the first major religious conflict. For more than 300 years countless religious crusades were waged by European Christians and Muslims. This conflict was termed at the “holy war.” Inevitably this war converted into conquest as each conflicting religion tried to prove superior. America was discovered in the year 1492 by Christopher Columbus....   [tags: social acceptance, global unity]

- Global warming is an increase in the earth 's temperature due to fossil fuels, industry, and agricultural processes caused by human, natural, and other gas emissions. This results in an increased emission of greenhouse gases. Short-wave solar radiation sinks into the Earth 's atmosphere and warms its surface; while long wave infrared radiation emitted by earth 's surface is absorbed, and then re-emitted by trace gases.

Global Warming is one of the most raised topics about the world today. That being said, is it truly a human-made apocalypse. The answer is no. Global Warming, according to around 30,000 scientists, is not mainly caused by humans....   [tags: Carbon dioxide, Global warming, Water resources]

Global Warming And Climate Change

- First and foremost the first environmental problem we need to face is climate change, respectfully. Most every environmental problem can traced to climate change. Now, while climate change, colloquially known as global warming, is the warming of Earth’s surface. Now while climate change is cyclical and has taken place for millions – maybe billions – of years there’s evidence that “human activity” during the past century has dramatically raised the average surface temperature of the Earth “…by 1.4 percent degrees Fahrenheit…” (EPA 2012b) (Leon-Guerrero, p....   [tags: Global warming, Air pollution, Climate change]

The Effects Of Global Warming On The Sea Levels

- One damaging effect of global warming is the increase of sea levels. This effect is much worse when predicted by the leading climate models. The models do not account for the sheer velocity of the breakup of ice sheets and glaciers, NASA scientists said at a press briefing. The constant increase of sea levels and the associated expansion of their waters account for about one-third of rising sea levels around the world. "When the heat goes under the ocean, it expands just like mercury in a thermometer; the remaining two-thirds of sea level rise is occurring as a result of glacial and polar melt from ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica, and mountain glaciers....   [tags: Climate change, Global warming, Climate]

- 1.0 The Global Financial Crisis and Its Impact The recent Global Financial Crisis (GFC) initially began with the collapse of credits and financial markets, which caused by the sub-prime mortgage crisis in the US in 2007. The sub-prime mortgages were given to high-risk lenders (with bad credit history) who were in danger of defaulting, which eventually caused a global credit crunch, where the banks were unwilling to lend to each other. In October 2008, the collapse of the major financial institutions and the crash of stock markets marked the peak of this global economic slowdown (Euromonitor International, 2008)....   [tags: global economic slowdown, financial markets]
