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”).
Yet, the text stops short of calling for an action, because such action will be impotent and unlikely to be favored by the wealthy when they will not face much consequences. As said earlier, the text does make a very good case that the mass extinction is happening. Persuading anyone to care about the environment was a harder feat to accomplish in 1998, but Quammen has successfully done so through employing ethos, logos and pathos. The text utilizes logos through heavy use of lists and statistics. For example, from listing “causal factors that account for most extinctions” (60) to all the “semi-wild” places Quammen has visited for “dilettantish excursions” (67), the text often
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.
Whoever says science states facts isn’t saying the truth because science is always evolving and making new discoveries. Climate change is going to be a big concern, it’s going to cause a mass change in agriculture, the rising heat will affect farmers and how they grow crops. The burning toxic chemicals cannot lead to a positive outcome as well, it may rise health problems and create different types of dieses that’ll affect mankind. Science has its predictions, but how solid can these predictions be? “The Myth of ‘Settled Science.’” is an article written by Charles Krauthammer that addresses a different point of view on global warming.
By publishing a story about climate change in this book of falsehoods and untrue science theories, he already makes it clear that he does not agree with this theory and believes it is wrong. His last caption “All this has taken place even though the 2000s have experienced a solar output decline” sounds somewhat cynical. All through the cartoon he has given facts and figures that may or may not give evidence for climate change, but he diminishes them by ending saying, that people say that what is happening is climate change and global warming exists, but that’s not possible seeing as we’ve had a solar output decline. Cunningham makes this fact seem like it outweighs all the others presented before and makes his viewpoint on the matter very clear by finishing with this
The media would have us believe that global warming is an immediate problem, that the world is going to flood and the CO2 gases are going to cause health problems for people who have asthma and other breathing problems. Although some of their statements are backed by science they resort to using scare tactics when speaking to the American public. According to polls conducted however most American’s put global warming lower on the list of things that worry them. This may be why the media uses scare tactics when speaking about global warming to make people take the issue seriously. As previously stated scientists do believe it will be a dangerous problem in the future and it is something people can work to correct.
It may just be a chance to get food or supplies, but I think the main reason is not to be ignored by other countries. I think the ultimate reason is that North Korea is a poor country and a powerless country. However, if they have war with another country, they can continue to conduct nuclear tests because it can cause some damage even if North Korea is destroyed. Secondly, in the 1990s, North Korea faced a full-scale system crisis. The Eastern bloc was transformed into a capitalist state, and the Soviet Union collapsed to break down the economy that had been supported by aid, and conventional weapons that dominated the South were outdated and could not reach South Korea.
Climate change is hot political topic. There is a huge debate about whether it is natural, man-made, and some even question if it is a reality. One of the biggest ideas spread against climate change is that there is no evidence. Yet, as these debates go on, our world keeps showing signs of climate change, scientist provide more evidence, and the effects of ignoring the problem become visible. There is so much evidence for climate change that is hard to deny the issue.
Thanks to the Greenhouse Effect, this can lead to “rising sea levels, population displacement, disruption to the food supply, flooding, and an increase in infectious diseases” (Feldscher). Not all scientists can agree on what causes Global Warming, but Bernstein expresses his side well. His research shows that there was a spike in the percentage of GHGs in the atmosphere around the time of the Industrial Revolution (Feldscher). Rising sea levels, rising Temperatures, and an increase in precipitation are considered the three most popular dangers of Climate Change. The Harvard Professor says that they “have the greatest impact on human health”.
Climate change and global warming have always been an issue, but in recent years, the global temperature has increased significantly. The main cause of climate change is the expansion of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which are omitted by humans. Due to humans clearing land for agriculture and factories, this has increased the concentration of carbon dioxide in earth’s atmosphere. The large amount of greenhouse gases in earth’s atmosphere, cause for heat to be trapped in the atmosphere more easily, which eventually leads to sea level rise, more evaporation, less precipitation, and overall, warmer weather conditions. Some regions will become dryer, due to less precipitation, while others become more wet, due to more than average rainfall.
