Although this could be true, it is mainly based on assumptions and predictions. Because of this, it is hard to tell the extent to which the greenhouse gases destroy the ozone (Oppenheim 89). In addition, scientists have not had observations from space for a long enough period to see long-term trends in the climate. Scientists also lacks the techniques to detect the small changes involved in climate change. This lack of technologies and technique to predict or tell what is taking place in the space limits or hinder the climate change mitigation strategies (Oppenheim 89).

Data has suggested that when there is a change in carbon dioxide concentration in the surface waters of the ocean this may affect atmospheric concentrations, which could result in the warming or cooling to the Earth’s climate. The fact that the concentration of carbon dioxide in the environment is linked to temperature shows that small changes in climate can be amplified by an increase or decrease in carbon
Body A. Counter Claim: Most scientist and people believe that humans are the cause of global warming because of the emissions that they put into the air, but there is a small percentage of people who think that global warming is not caused by emissions at all. Support with MLA citation
A few years later he developed a way to measure the earth’s temperature in any location and proposed that it was the tilt in the earth’s axis that was a contributing factor in the cause of the “Ice Age”. In addition, he learned that snow also plays a major role in reflecting solar energy from the earth’s surface; and concluded that changes in the earth’s orbit could cause climate changes. Upon further investigation he also discovered that climate changes amplified each other and this evidence led to what we now call the “Ice
Climate Change affects everybody in the world, even though some choose to ignore it, which is why it would be in humanity’s best interest to come together and find a solution. Burning fossil fuels and the increase of greenhouse gases is causing the earth to warm. Although this gas is the source of the problem we still need it, without this gas the earth would be very cold. What the greenhouse effect is a layer of gas that surrounds the earth,
Global Warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth. This issue has always been seen as a huge problem within politics, but is it really as much of an issue as people claim it to be, or just some scam to scare the public? Overtime many facts have proven that Global Warming is not a big deal. Although temperatures have been slightly rising, it has only been by a few degrees, nothing to be concerned about. The majority of evidence in favor of Global Warming has been written by non scientists, or by biased authors.
What is global warming? Global warming is defined as “ an increase in the earth 's average atmospheric temperature that causes corresponding changes in climate, and that may result from the greenhouse effect" (“Global warming”). Natural events and human that causes global warming are believed to be factors to increase in average temperatures. This essay looks into the growing problem of global warming and suggests reasonable solutions to it. It also evaluates the effectiveness of these solutions.
Similarly, volcanic degassing determines the state of the atmosphere and climate and influences the ways in which volcanoes erupt. Hence, throughout geological history, volcanic degassing has been crucial to planetary habitability as it evidently prevented the planet from freezing, despite lower atmospheric pressures, by generating an adequate greenhouse effect. However, volcanoes occasionally erupt cataclysmically, emitting great volumes of gas and ash into the upper layers of the atmosphere. As a result, the volcanic debris may block incoming sunlight, causing global cooling, and can thereby lead to widespread crop failure and famine. The habitable zone of the Earth is, therefore, dependant on the operation of plate tectonics, as it provides the necessary conditions for atmospheric evolution and life on
Personal Carbon Footprint Assessment Intended application This assessment aims to calculate the personal carbon footprint using a suitable method which covers a reasonable amount of personal activity and takes into consideration most of the GHGs.The content of this assessment can be used to infer the effects of normal day to day activities of an individual that may directly or indirectly contribute to global warming and the obtained total carbon footprint value can be compared with average footprint values around the world. The result obtained can be used by EPAs to find hotspots and accordingly try to offset it. Reason In the recent years, organizations and companies have heavily focused on the environmental impacts of its activities, hence
Anthony Marr a geophysicist also argues that the increase of Latent heat or Enthalpy will affect the hottest and coldest areas in the world. The event he calls “Latent Heat of Fusion” will rise the temperatures in Antarctic, Artic, and Greenland melting glacial ice. As the ice melt the surrounding waters become warmer which may play a big role in the way future climate change unfolds. This is threat to wildlife which depend on the freezing temperature for survival. This may also cause rise in sea levels and shifting of the balance of the earth
