Do you often hear things like "we are killing our planet" or "global warming is a massive problem" from your local hippies? I 'm sure you must accept the common misconception that humans have made a huge impact on climate change, well I beg to differ: humans are actually not the main reason to climate change. In this essay I will explain as to why climate change isn 't caused by humans and why you should change your perspective on the topic. By analyzing that Global warming is natural, sea levels have been steadily rising for thousands of years, and CO2 has little impact on global warming, it becomes obvious that climate change was not cause by humans.
This is important because about 70% of our planet is water-covered, temperature highly influence the chemistry of water, and all living things including us, depend on water. Also, by measuring air temperature we can know the weather of certain place. For example, if we are planning a weekend vacation, we need to know the weather before deciding the clothes we will need. However, Earth has been getting warmer in the past 50 years. We call this change “Global Warming”. This chapter also describes the causes and consequences of Global Warming. This is important to me because our life depends on how we act toward this problem. Every person living on Earth should be informed of what is happening and what will happen if we continue to live like this for the upcoming
In 2005, 140 countries signed a treaty to reduce their country’s greenhouse-gas emissions (Source A). There are numerous ways to go about this but the best option is to use more renewable resources. The main cause of global warming is CO2 gas being released into the atmosphere and almost 75% of that gas comes from breaking down fossil fuels (Source A). Using renewable resources in place of the fossil fuels would be cleaner and lead to less gas being released into the atmosphere. With technology growing like it is today, finding different ways to use cleaner resources should be easier than ever before. Large companies could even have to pay if they don’t lower their CO2 emissions. This would help motivate them to create a better environment (Source C). Hopefully these companies use renewable resources to help the environment without giving up
Nancy Lord’s Early Warming and Elizabeth Kolbert’s “The Darkening Sea” both discuss how global warming is affecting the world. Lord and Kolbert talk about the negative result of climate change and try to raise awareness to global warming. Both Lord’s Early Warming and Kolbert’s “The Darkening Sea” use many different kinds of rhetorical strategies throughout their text. In Lord’s Early Warming, Lords relates to the community about climate change and tells stories about how global warming has affected many people around us. In Kolbert’s “The Darkening Sea”, Kolbert explains how scientist view global warming and uses scientific evidence to show the effect of global warming. Furthermore, Lord is more successful than Kolbert at what Herndl, Rockenbach,
Almost anyone who will read this essay has undoubtedly heard of the climate phenomenon Global warming. Global warming is a topic that gets discussed very often nowadays, most notably during political debate and discussion. Politicians use certain stances on global warming to appeal to voter’s emotions and logic in order to gain votes and support for their campaign, however climate change is nothing new, during the past several hundred thousand years the Earth has heated up and cooled down and even experienced so called “ice ages”, which is a period where glacial deposits located at the northern and southern hemispheres have grown due to dramatic global cool downs. Don’t be confused by climate terminology though, the global warming so widely
Continuing on our current path condemns us to a future of more extreme weather, disease, famine, forced migration, and armed conflict. We need to show the American people what a clean energy revolution can do—create millions of new jobs, improve our infrastructure, environment, and public health, and ensure the society we leave to our children and grandchildren is stronger than the one we found.
In today’s day and age, climate change is becoming a hot topic. Whether one is an advocate for change or is just skeptical of the entire belief, there is no doubt that this concept is relevant to the modern society. In an article by Robert J. Antonio titled, “Climate Change and Society by John Urry," he evaluates the research of scientist and breaks down the complexities of climate change for the audience. In a separate article by Ashokankur Datta and E. Somanathan titled, “Climate Policy and Innovation in the Absence of Commitment”, the authors evaluate policies concerning the pricing of adapting to more emission-free, healthier technology for the environment. These two articles will be compared and contrasted based on reasons why the public
There is a quote by President Barack Obama saying, “To truly transform our economy, protect our security, and save our planet from the ravages of climate change, we need to ultimately make clean, renewable energy the profitable kind of energy,” (“151 Inspiring Environmental Quotes”). He believes as many due that nonrenewable resources are harmful to all aspects of life. The energy we use now is harmful to our planet, to humans, and to animals. Scientists are taking steps to making the world a better place. They found sources that replenished naturally in a short amount of time and are less destructive in all aspects. Due to these issues, renewable resources should become our primary source of energy.
The world itself is ever changing. Two authors by the names of Pamela Paul and Michael Pollan would agree upon this statement and would add that not only is it changing but it’s direction is one that would cause much harm. Pamela Paul writes an exceptional essay, “Green, if not Clean” where she argues that the cleaning supplies that we use to maintain our homes can over time not only be harmful to the environment but to our own health. While Michael Pollan discusses the depth of that the result of the carbon footprint in his essay “Why Bother?”. Also the change that must be taken into action to end the crisis of climate change. Both authors however use their own ideas which trigger an array of emotions from their audience. But, Michael Pollan
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.
Global warming is a big problem that we have to face nowadays. If you search Google for the word “global warming’, you will get over 70 million pages of results.
There are other ways also that affects the ocean through global warming. Plenty of things that are happening to the ocean are associated to global warming. One important thing is warm water which is caused from global warming and it is harming and killing algae in the
Imagine a world where your house is as deserted just as the town you once lived in, also you have states that are touching water will probably be under water. A world were the air is so hot that it can hurt your throat just breathing. I am a Floridian and love the heat, but I hope that my generation does not have to go through global warming. Global warming is when “The earth’s surface becomes warm and as a result emits long-wave ‘infrared’ radiation”(Maslin pg. 4). Sometimes I wish that global warming is just the world pulling a prank on us, but I feel its not doing that with us. Global warming is one of the greatest discussions this world has ever had. The U.S.A. is discussing why this is happening. In the unsigned article Global Warming the writer wrote, ” Crowded landfills, polluted water, and poor air quality are just a few of the environmental problems that affect both industrial and developing nations”(“Global” par.1). Perhaps less obvious but no less ominous a threat to the environment are the general increase in temperatures worldwide and the resulting climate changes. This phenomenon, known as global warming, could have serious negative effects on humans and all other living things on Earth. Global warming is a complex problem, and governments have had great difficulty deciding how to address it. Some people think that it is the work of the world where nothing we do can ether change it or anything we do will prevent it. While others say that the
In August 2015, the Environmental protection Agency (EPA) and President Obama established the Clean Power Plan to protect to health of children as well as a path toward a 32 percents of Carbon dioxide pollution and this plan will lead 30% more renewable energy by 2030.
The majority of scientists around the world have a fear of global warming and its effects on nature and humans around the world. Global warming is considered as one of the most threatened in our world today. This essay presents and explains the impact of global warming on earth and suggests to finding the best solutions can be done in order to minimizing those reason that affected on raising the temperatures to avoid this problem.
