JIMMY KIMMEL GETS REAL ON CLIMATE CHANGE The late show host is a comedian first and political activist second, but even Jimmy Kimmel knows a bad joke when he sees one. Climate change has to be the biggest joke going right now. On his segment on climate change the other night, he stated that NASA and 97 percent of climate scientists agree that the warming we are experiencing is likely due to human activity. Still, some politicians feel the need to say its a hoax. Those politicians and the other three percent of "scientists" they've probably paid off have been doing everything they can to avoid the reality of the issue.
When Pandora opened the box, all of the evils were released which is similar to when scientists began to utilize atomic energy and continues to this day. The evils of atomic power are the harmful atomic waste products produced and when nuclear accidents and failures occur. The arguments for nuclear power include, “Nuclear power generation does emit relatively low amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2). The emissions of greenhouse gases and therefore the contribution of nuclear power plants to global warming is therefore relatively little...It is possible to generate a high amount of electrical energy in one single plant.” However, the cons of nuclear energy are numerous. For example, not only are there high risks of potential meltdowns, but the nuclear waste that is is created is extremely toxic.
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. To show the government is heading in the wrong direction we must make sure that we all know that Climate Change is caused by human activities. An article states, “Ninety-seven percent of scientists agree that human activity and reliance on fossil fuels is warming our planet. And whether you ‘believe’ the science or not, we will be all be suffering the impacts of climate change, even more so if Trump refuses to act during his presidency” (Schleeter, “3 Things Scott Pruitt Has Actually Said About Climate Change”).
Had Truman not dropped the bombs on Nagasaki many American lives would have needlessly been lost. The atomic bombs destroyed many thinks in their wake as nearly 140,000 Japanese lives were taken (). Scientists witnessed the utter power of these weapons of mass destruction and tried to control it, thus bringing forth the atomic age. The energy in an atomic bomb can be harvested and controlled in order to provide safe and clean energy. Though the plan was for a reliable energy source for the world, things took tragic turns as inevitable accidents occurred.
Another counter-argument against the hoax theory is the practicality of continuing the make believing for the rest of the Apollo missions. Conspiracy theorists claim that the reason the American government and N.A.S.A faked it was to swindle the American public out of billions of dollars. But how much more would it cost to bribe the people involved so they would keep quite and to pay for the thousands of exhibits and museums dedicated to the moon landings? It was said on a 2001 Fox TV Network program called, "Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon?" that 20 percent of Americans doubt that we landed on the moon.
But our primary source of energy is doing just that. Normally this process is slowly reversed over time as plants consume atmospheric carbon, eventually die, and get buried in rock. But thanks to us, plant mass is not as strong of a carbon neutralizing force since we routinely cut down their most robust members for resources and occupy much of their premium growing real estate. In the past increased environment toxicity and global warming akin to what we are managing to do with our incredible pollution has been known to devastate portions of the population, without which, the complex ecology of the time collapses. That is just it, we don’t need to directly kill everything to evoke a mass extinction, we just need to destabilize the biological systems in place, which we are doing.
We have been mining coal for only two hundred of our 200 000 year existence as a species, yet we have already caused irreparable damage to the environment. We face a huge array of potentially disastrous threats to our planet, many of which could spell the end of humanity itself. The only way to feasibly secure the survival of our species is to leave Earth and colonise other planets, and to facilitate this we need to improve both our understanding of space and our ability to traverse it. The way onwards from this dangerous stalemate can only be the necessary investment of both resources and brainpower into the exploration of this vast and rich frontier.
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.
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
“Global warming is too serious for the world any longer to ignore it’s dangers or split into opposing factions on it, Tony Blair.” The disregard by scientists of global warming does not remove the problems of disturbing the balance of habitats, negatively affecting the human body, and affecting the natural forces of nature, making us doubt the negation of global warming due to its horrific effects. My rebuttal coming from a site that negates my position that global warming is, in fact, real, and a serious problem. In an article coming from Conserve-energy.com, it states in years in the past artic ice has “increased by 50%” which negates the concept of a gradual warming in temperature around the earth. This article also so presented studies
The “Rap-Back” Of Tech In the two stories, “Harrison Bergeron”, and “By The Waters Of Babylon”, the world is “destroyed”, or “remade”, after a technological “break-down”. Tech can very easily lead us to our own imminent demise, none the less it’s own, but usually, it may only do so with our allowing it. For example, Global Warming. Global Warming is, for the most part, the direct result of human activity. We use machines to burn fossil fuels and drill underground, which we couldn’t do without tech.
This event is simular to the Ordovican extinction event because it took place over a very long period of time tens of millions of years .their are many therois about what happened doing this event however many believe that their was a huge loss in the planets carbon dioxide which caused a major chemical reaction. The second is that plants stole carbon from the atmosphere to create their own artificile carbon. The lack of carbon in the atmosphere is extremity dangerous because it could affect the climate of the planet. Carbon helps trap heat because of the green house gas affect. With out Carbon Dioxide their would be a globe cooling.
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. Some people believe that the environment isn 't being harmed by everyday production, but one can argue that as people move closer to fracking industries, people become exposed to harmful gases and chemicals. Fracking a destructive force, is it safe, is it reasonable, is it right? As Chris Hedges explains in his article “Death By Fracking”, he says, “There are more than 15 million Americans, many of them children, who live within a mile of a fracking site. Most are being exposed daily to a deadly brew of toxins.
Global Warming is the most controversial issue that we face today, because throughout the years we have been releasing greenhouse gases that are harmful in the long run and will affect the future generations. The temperature throughout the twentieth century has been increasing steadily by 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit a year. The cause of global warming is from the release of gases called GreenHouse gasses such as carbon dioxide, methane and several more. Factories ,cars, and other working companies release these gases while extracting fossil fuel from the earth 's crust. Alternatives sources of energy can be implemented because if we keep on using energy that releases these GHG then we might tear up the ozone layer.
Al Gore, the main speaker of the movie The Inconvenient Truth and a past vice president of the United States, has had an interest in the global environmental status for over 3 decades. The Inconvenient Truth is a political message to America about how global warming can be blamed on leaders who have not made an impact. Even though he was supposed to be focused on the environmental crisis, at some points in the movie his bitterness over the loss of the presidential election peeped through. As a politician, he is remarkable at connecting to the audience. Therefore, his message about global warming has successfully raised awareness.
