In Newtok Alaska, the villages are built on frozen solid soil. With the climate changing the soil is thawing out and the ice is melting. Some villages have even begun to sink in into the ground. Now the villagers must relocate to higher ground and must rebuild on solid ground that won't be affected by the climate change. Humans are the main cause of global warming, but at the same time we are the only ones who can stop it. For centuries, atmospheric carbon dioxide has never been higher than it is now. It has been increasing since the industrial revolution. The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Many have tried to come up with solutions to fix this controversial issue but climate change is still a major issue and affecting millions of lives. To stop this drastic effect we have on the world we must get together with other countries to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, drive more
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.
The documentary Climate of Doubt talked about whether climate change was a scientific truth, it provided many details about the denial of climate change, which I was not familiar with. Although majority of the scientists, precisely, 98% of the climate experts, believe that the major cause of climate change is human activities; there are plenty of people reckon that climate change is a kind of natural phenomenon. They also point out that global warming consensus is not based on science, but for the political purpose. From my perspective, the severity of climate change indeed can affect the decisions of policy-makers, such as green policy and governance. But it does not mean that people can just ignore the consequences of the enormous emission of greenhouse gases in the past few decades.
I 'm not usually stunned by opinion regardless of how delusional the foundation of it is, but even the hardened polemist may wince at the vehement aimed at global warming skeptics / deniers. Debate is a wonderful thing if it is about interpretations surrounding water tight credible data; I crave for hard evidence - herewith, while seeking it the waters become murky and the rhetoric shifts onwards to comparisons you 'll never dream of... A war veteran 's letter illustrates this point with bells on. "Propaganda by global-warming skeptics and deniers remind me of 1944, when as an Army officer I saw living skeletons in striped pajamas. Horror stories about Nazi concentration camps suddenly rang true. I wondered how intelligent people could commit such atrocities. History records the effectiveness of Joseph Goebbells 's propaganda. I hope Al Gore and others can prevail over today 's anti-science propaganda." The years may 've drained away at logical and comparative thinking here; albeit, it is exactly the tact political minds endeavour and adopt in to impose this propaganda, when credible data and reasoning is asked / demanded of, to make vital decisions. The bellicose tend to adopt an invalid stance / comparative to
Climate change is been debated for over centuries now. People all around the world are taking action and reducing burning fossils to minimize the gasses in the atmosphere. Many people believe that climate change doesn't exists. But there are a lot of controversial topics that proves that climate change is real. In my opinion, climate change is slowly killing us and destroying our planet.
It’s obvious to see that global warming is becoming more and more of an issue. What we don’t know is how much global warming is going to affect us in the future. Some people believe it’s a major issue while other aren’t quite sure if it would even change anything or cause damage. When you look at the statistics though, it’s easy to realize that something, like using renewable resources, must be done to slow down global warming or stop it all together.
This quote said by Washington State Governor, Jay Inslee shows the severity of climate change “We are the first generation to feel the sting of climate change, and we are the last generation that can do something about it.” “On Earth human activities are changing the natural greenhouse of the Earth.” (A blanket around the Earth). Burning fossil fuels is causing carbon dioxide to be released into the air. By releasing this gas into the air the natural greenhouse gases increase and cause many effects to happen. Carbon dioxide is also caused by removing natural resources from the land for agriculture.
Climate change has been a problem in the world since the industrial revolution and has been denied by major corporations and the government for centuries. This is because most non-renewable resources are major industries (i.e. oil, electricity, water, etc.) and the world 's economy profits from these resources. The bulk of corporations prioritize their wealth over the condition of the Earth beneath them. Economic growth is important for the people, yes; it is how we develop as a society, but at what cost? The Earth takes the brunt of society 's success, and denying the inevitable will not stop it from occurring. In fact, denying climate change will only harm society and the Earth further; because by denying it, those who deny climate change are willingly aiding the damage and the danger climate change brings.
A few months ago, strange, frigid weather was sweeping across the nation. Some places saw their first snowfall in eight years. Other cities ended up being colder than cities that were closer to the North Pole. Scientists believe that this is because of global warming. Some people don’t believe that this weird weather means that global warming is a serious thing: “Some question how it could be so cold if the planet is heating up. Scientists say that despite our recent cold weather, the planet has slowly been getting hotter for more than a century." Two weeks of really cold temperatures don't negate decades of warming," explains Jake Crouch. He's a climate scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). (The Cold Facts: The harsh weather this winter has some people wondering whether global warming is real, Scholastic News/Weekly) This quote shows that some people believe that small things don’t affect the bigger picture. Because people don’t know about the aspects of nature, they believe that global warming can’t be affected by such a small event. Our society thinks that one change in the weather doesn’t have a big impact on our planet. If these thoughts continue, our planet could end up dying even faster than it already is. Overall, people don’t understand that small things can have big
Maybe it is time that Americans stop being self consumed and come together to make a vital adjustment. Just think if one individual commits an act making a difference and then shares that knowledge to one other individual and then that individual does one thing and so on, and on. Change will occur as a result and it is about time we take responsibility for our planet. It is indisputable that climate change does exist, the drought, the hot winter and now is the time to make changes. Even though, these changes are very late, it is the least we all can do to leave behind for our children and their
Climate Change is something that we have caused because of our choices to burn fossil fuels, at some point we have to face the problems that we have created. The consequences of Climate Change are horrific and Climate Change could end our existence as a species, most people do take action against Climate Change except, The Government of the United States of America, refuses to accept the serious dangers of climate change and continues releasing propaganda on Climate Change, claiming its effects are minimal and that we are not causing it. Peculiar how almost every other government in the world thinks otherwise. The reasons we are heading in the wrong direction is because the actions of humans are causing Climate Change, and almost all scientists agree on this matter. Another reason is the that the government isn’t trustworthy in what they say about Climate Change, meaning what they say about Climate Change is wrong, and we should change our policy on Climate Change.
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
Climate change is the most rising issue of the modern world that is threatening our planet from the last few decades. In the simplest definition, the term climate change refers to the rising of the planet’s temperature, particularly an increase in the average atmospheric temperature. It should be noted that in the last few decades, many scientists and ecologists has discovered the Earth temperature is increasing at an alarming rate and has affected the planet in numerous of way. The constant change in the climate due to various causes is threatening the preservation of the Earth and its human life. It should be noted that the climate change is linked with several of the human activities that are further directed towards the global warming.
Rising sea levels are just one out of many problems that will potentially place many people out of homes in the next 100 years. With continuous Ocean and atmospheric warming, sea levels will continue to rise at a higher rates than currently recorded this year. According to the NOAA tide data the sea rises Between 0.8 to 3.3 mm Per year with an average rate of 1.8 per year. Greenland and Antarctica together hold enough ice, that if it all melted sea levels would rise more than 80 meters. Rising tide data published by NOAA has suggested that low lying coastal areas will be affected the most by this problem. Places Like the low lying parts of the Netherlands, Brazil, Egypt, America, Japan, India, Indonesia, Vietnam and
