The Day After Tomorrow: Remediating Global Warming

- Global warming, an increase in the average of Earth’s temperature, has been occurring since the 1800s. A majority of climatologists conclude that human activities are responsible for most of the warming. The main human activities that contribute to global warming are the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas) and the clearing of land (NASA). Since wealthier industrial countries use most of the world’s fossil fuels, they not surprisingly contribute most to this phenomenon. Europe, Japan, and North America – with roughly fifteen percent of the world’s current population – are estimated to account for two-thirds of the carbon dioxide now in the atmosphere (Gotham Gazette)....   [tags: Film Analysis]
