According too many scientist even a small 1 degree increase of the average temperature leads to negative effects on our planet. As the conditions on the earth get warmer some regions will experience drought, and others heavy precipitation, the ice glaciers will melt creating a rise in oceans, damage the ecosystems, and the increase occurrence for extreme weather. With the
Introduction: Today it is thought that global warming is a serious problem in our society. Scientist say that global warming has caused an abundance of serious matter like polar bear population decreased and extreme weather conditions. In this essay, global warming will be discussed and the cause and effects of it, as well as to what we can do to help prevent it. Ultimately, a conclusion will be raised answering the focus question, “Will global warming be the end of the human race?” First Section: Global Warming and its Causes
The debate on climate change has impacted the environmental activist community heavily. They believe the toxins released into the atmosphere by fossil fuels are warming the earth incrementally, which is consequently melting the polar ice caps. When temperatures rise and ice melts, the oceans’ water levels increase, which is happening more rapidly than ever before (Glick 1). Our planet could potentially flood if this trend does not stop. It would not only hurt the habitats
According to Chris Woodford, “the exact effect of climate change is complex: it is also leading to greater snowfall, which is building up glaciers in some places at the same time as they are being eroded elsewhere. If all of Antarctica 's ice were to melt, it has been estimated that global sea levels would rise by 80 meters (260 ft)!”(2017). Thinking about the sea levels rising is frightening, which is why it is important to start thinking about things that
It’s rather obvious that human causes are more vulnerable compared to natural causes. Natural causes are normally external to the climate system, such as changes in volcanic activity, solar output, and the Earth 's orbit around the Sun. On the other side, climate change that are caused by human activities, are such as the burning of fossil fuels and also the conversion of land for forestry and agriculture. Not only that, carbon dioxide is also one of the main cause of human-induced climate change. Ever since the Industrial Revolution, the production of carbon dioxide which is a greenhouse gas has been increasing tremendously.
Global warming can harming the environment in several ways which are desertification, increase the melting of snow and ice, rising of sea level and stronger storms and extreme events. This effect can causes many negative impact to the human and other organisms. If the global warming takes place, sea level will rise because of two different processes. Firstly, the warmer temperature can cause level of the sea to rise due to the thermal expansion of seawater. Secondly, the water from melting glaciers and the ice sheets of Greenland and the Antarctica would also add water to the ocean which cause negative consequences to human and other habitat.
Nonetheless, human activity has affecting the ordinary pattern over the past century, while the anthropogenic climate has been formed. Due to the exponentially increase of population and the enlarging greediness of them, the resulted climate change challenged the human health. Actually, pollution, deforestation, extensive agriculture, consumption of fossil fuels, and industrialization are closely correlated to the climate change, and they, at the same time, are the necessities in supporting the infinite greediness of human (Weiss & Bradley,
Climate change is real and it is happening fast. As Eli Kintisch, the author of Hack The Planet states, “the planet has warmed 1.4°F since the preindustrial times, with at least another 1.1°F in the pipeline, even if we were to stop our carbon diet cold, completely, today”. For this reason, scientists feel the need for a more radical action to stop a catastrophe. This new “radial action” is called geoengineering. The goal of geoengineering is to make large-interventions to how the planet works to help slow down or even reverse the damages that people have done.
THE EFFECTS OF GLOBAL WARMING AND THE WAYS TO OVERCOME Nowadays, global warming has grabbed the experts and the scientists’ attention. It is the most critical issue that our world facing in the 21st century. Global warming is the gradual heating of Earth 's surface, oceans and atmosphere. Global warming occurred, when carbon dioxide increases in the air and the air start to be warmer and hotter.
As a result of human activities, the environment is in many ways, degradation, and global warming will accelerate these degradation. (1) because of the high temperature melting glaciers, water thermal expansion, causing the sea level to rise. Sea level rise will be a serious threat to coastal areas, may inundate low-lying coastal areas, serious impact on human activities. (2) climate change caused by global warming will lead to great changes in water supply in many places, the availability of fresh water will be greatly changed. The temperature increase means down to the water will be evaporated, if there is more rainfall to supplement evaporation, is not What impact.
Geoengineering is the manipulation of an environmental process that affects the earth’s climate in the effort to reverse global warming. Possible side effects of geoengineering that are not worth it are ocean acidification and worse climate in some regions. It is interesting how there are so many ways to possibly reverse the effects of climate change that are not being done, but scientists actually want to go through with this method and Klein has so much against it. I agree that geoengineering is not the best method because scientists are finding ways that are not natural, like shooting chemicals into the air, when there are completely natural ways to do it, that people are not willing to do, such as cutting down on
Climate change is more serious than we take it. If it continues, everyone will parish. Climate change affects us in many different ways. It causes animal population numbers to decrease, slows down transportation to the north, and causes flooding and the rise of the sea level. Global warming exists, and it is not only affecting the environment.
The event he calls “Latent Heat of Fusion” will rise the temperatures in Antarctic, Artic, and Greenland melting glacial ice. As the ice melt the surrounding waters become warmer which may play a big role in the way future climate change unfolds. This is threat to wildlife which depend on the freezing temperature for survival. This may also cause rise in sea levels and shifting of the balance of the earth
Steinbeck uses light as a motif in the novella, the purpose of using the light is foreshadowing the events that would be coming up later in the novella. Crook’s can be an example, “...and his eyes lay deep in his head, and because of their depth seemed to glitter wit intensity.” ( “Of Mice and Men” pg.67). The word “depth” had shows that Crook is intelligence because he’s educated. He had his own privacy and books but it still can;t change the loneliness about Crook.
In the novel, Of Mice and Men, Steinbeck had used several different thematic issues with each relating to the characters in some type of way. With that, the reader saw the up and downs and the challenges that the characters faced internally or external. Some of the major thematic issues that the characters face is the truth between dreams and reality, having power and being powerless and unity and isolation. In the beginning of the story you hear Lennie and George telling their dream of the house they want to buy and the things they would have and do there.
