Their cost does not count the damage they cause to the environment because of this renewable energies are more costly. Onshore winds is the only renewable energy with a cost of production as low as fossil fuels. Mandle states that there is a bias in our political funding. Our government does not want to invest in these new technologies because they are do not want future generations to suffer from tax increases. Mandle explains that not addressing the climate change situation will cause more damage to future generation than some tax increases.
*sea levels can rise *the global temperature can rise and change the weather *Plants and animals may not survive 5. b)to generate electricity 6. b)Petrol car emissions because the petrol is a fossil fuel,causes pollution 7. Yes they are good sources as they have a good reputation for throughout research. 8. No,
In another article written by Amanda Macmillan summarizes the effects global warming has on nature due to the cause of overload of carbon dioxide and forest deforestation. First, the text states earth’s rising “temperatures are fueling longer and hotter heat waves, more frequent droughts, heavier rainfall, and more powerful hurricanes”, which is not good news for us living here on planet earth. And it doesn’t stop there-there are also the effects of global warming creating even more “intense allergy seasons”, and the frequent sea level rise happening around the world.obviously these problems are not convenient for us we shouldn’t ignore this any more change must come. Other major examples found on a website called livescience.com it states “heavier flooding and precipitation” will come in result of global warming, and over the last 100 years the global temp has gone up .4 degrees celsius. These stats might not seem like a lot but they are having drastic effects on our
Climate change is denied is due to the prioritization of business and the economy. Large corporations create their products with uncostly materials, in order to profit more, and those materials are more-often-than-not non-renewable resources or cause damage to the Earth. These corporations prefer to not be targeted with accusations of the unethical damage they are causing. Therefore, they create propaganda against climate change, they create doubt among their customers. It is considered a business tactic to create news surrounding issues, in order to distract the consumers from whatever controversial issue that is, or could be, affecting their sales.
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,
Electric cars are the new automotive craze. Being able to go hundreds of miles on a single charge for a full charge that cost less than three dollars, in a car that produces no greenhouse gases (Carroll). Not burning harmful fossil fuels and receiving a tax break should be reason enough to trade in the dirty dinosaur powered machine in for a clean electric car. Yet electric cars are still not a better option compared to regular fossil fueled cars. Due to electric cars being impractical, the process of generating electricity for the cars, and the repercussion of the batteries and cost of the cars all add up to make electric cars as harmful as fossil fueled cars.
If politicians and world leaders do not transition to alternative energy soon, it could result in the entire world shutting down. In conclusion, it has been established that oil, while harboring many positive factors, it outweighed by the negatives associated with its name. Oil is responsible for contaminating the oceans, wasting tax dollars, and contributing to global warming. Despite being a very profitable business, it is advised that companies and countries transition to alternative power methods before it is too
2. Brief analysis/warrant (How/Why this is important? )This shows how if we continue to pollute our atmosphere by emitting greenhouse gases such as carbon into our atmosphere, it will cause more natural disasters which will be more severe due to the rising temperatures which will allow for more severe storms, which is all a result from emissions. II. Conclusion A. Restate Thesis to remind the audience of your position: It can be said from the previous examples that global warming and climate change are both caused by human emission of greenhouse gases which result in consequences such as warmer temperatures and severe natural disasters.
Homero Castro Ms. Cabaj English IV, 3rd period 12 February 2018 Global Warming Global Warming is affecting the entire world. The issue of global warming is important because it’s affecting everyone. This problem is controversial because some people believe that that global warming isn 't real and others believe it is. There is evidence that global warming is real because some scientist agree that the earth 's rising temperatures is due to all of the pollution. My opinion on it is that it is clearly real and we need to do something to stop it.
Green house gases, such as carbon dioxide, are effecting a lot more than just our atmospheres air pollution and climate changes. This colorless, odorless chemical compound is vital to our life organisms on earth but since the Industrial Revolution has been significantly over produced “…due to the burning of fossil fuels and land use change.” (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, year), which in return is harming our world in many different ways that we may have never even thought of. Specifically, this element is creating chemical changes in our oceans called ocean acidification (NOAA, year). Ocean acidification is becoming an increasingly substantial problem due to its hazardous effects to marine life and seawater which eventually
Healthy ingredient and nutrition are high cost and they won’t help companies earn profits. As consumers, we might feel disappointed and angry after reading Moss’s essay. Most of the food companies don’t care about consumers’ health. For them, following the market strategy and earning profit are the most important things. Food companies even change the nutritional profile to make those food products look healthier.
After the process of fracking was “perfected” all gas companies hoping to stay competitive and make a profit were forced to move away from flaring. Unfortunately, trading an extreme profit margin for an increase in environmental awareness is nearly unheard of in the corporate world. To stop pulling the lever, when its repercussions will never be seen by the gas company, would show a complete lack of any of business sense. It also shows a complete lack of compassion. The benefits of fracking are short-term and the consequences long term.
As technology grows with society, scientist find alternatives to everyday things such as oil and gas. Hydraulic Fracturing being a top producer of oil and natural gases by drilling into the ground and pumping fluids, to release resources. Fracking is one of the main source of heat and fuel but how safe is it. Can we expect to truly continue to rely on oil and natural gases? I feel that fracking isn 't safe because not only do men die from being on oil drills but fracking leads to environmental hazards and shows society isn 't has far into the future as everyone thinks.
Without fracking, the price of gas would have a drastic raise from $3.25 to $11 per gallon, so consumers would have to pay about $130 or more to refill their gas tank. Fracking has a bad reputation of polluting the environment that we live in. The government should allow hydraulic fracking to continue only if fracking companies agree to the following. Transporting fuel from foreign countries require a lot of money, the government should spend the money on better things like paying people to work of public projects. David Morris, PhD, Vice President of the institute for Local Self-Reliance states that the expenditures for our transportation fleets are about hundreds of billions of dollars.
Big businesses and oil companies are destroying the environment by carbon emissions. They are laying a blind eye to what their actions are causing. Their jobs mean money for them and they don’t consider the major effects their actions are causing just like in Avatar. The humans didn’t take the Navis sacred sites and environment into account, they just did it for the money.
