Gore also asserts that global warming is caused by over population. Toxins and chemicals in the atmosphere impact each individual in the world. Because of the effects of global warming, the strength of hurricanes can change easily and cause an enormous amount of
Global Warming By Amanda Lardino Sci 275 What are the main causes of global warming? Is there things we can do to prevent it? Those are two of the main questions that have come to mind about the way to focus our thoughts on what can be done to decrease this issue in the world today. One of the major atmospheric issues that has been destroying the environment for years is global warming. I have read that in the present compared to the past global warming has increased tremendously.
As of 2010, Polluter Corp. has been emitting too much greenhouse gases because of their outdated facilities; however, they plan to re-furbish their facilities in 2014. Until then, they need more EA’s, which will be offset by an excess after the updating of their facilities are completed. Polluter has recorded the following transactions in 2010. These transactions will affect the statement of cash flows: 1. 04/02/2010 DR Emission Control Allowances $3,000,000 CR Cash $3,000,000 To purchase emission allowances with a vintage year 2012 2.
Whether you drive your car to work, turn on your light to illuminate a dark room or just watching television, you are burning using up energy that is being processed at a coal plant. Now that you know the enemy, let me inform you of its damage. Over the years, it’s been recorded that global warming has warmed up the entire planet causing water levels to rise; this may lead to devastating floods in costal cities all across the world. If that isn’t bad enough, we’re causing man made diseases with all the pollutants in the air. One such disease would be asthma, which takes the lives of 250,000 worldwide every year.
Even the extensive evidence that high amounts of greenhouse gases do have an impact on the rising temperature many still think all of this is part of the Earth’s natural cycle. During the last century temperatures have increased on a global scale, known as global warming. There has been a sharp rise in average temperature being 0.7°C between 1900 and 200. Scientists believe that this rise in temperature is mainly due to human factors and the increase of industrialisation and the revolution. These industrial activities have raised atmospheric gases such as carbon dioxide which contribute to greenhouse gases.
But if my opponents did any research, they would realize that there is plenty of evidence to show that global warming is a real threat to this earth. In his essay “Now Or Never”, Bill McKibben writes: Consider hydrology, for instance. Warm air holds more water vapor the cold air, so there is an increase in evaporation in dry areas, and hence more drought—something that has been documented on every continent. Once that water is in the atmosphere, it’s going to come down someone—and indeed we have seen the most dramatic flooding ever recorded in recent years. In 1998, 300 million humans, one in twenty of us, had to leave their homes for a week, and month, a year, forever because of rising waters.
He gives examples of how the Earth’s climate has changed in many ways over all the years. “During the medieval warming of thousand years ago, temperatures were much higher than they are now; during the Little Ice Age six centuries later they were much lower” (Jacoby 9). Basically he is saying that we have always had climate change, but humans still exist today. Jacoby talks about how they always make predictions about the end of the world, and it never happens. These are some of the reasons why Jacoby thinks that global warming is all just an exaggeration.
Global warming Do you believe in global warming? I don’t global warming has been a huge debate that will never come to an end. The liberals believe that humans play the biggest part of global warming because we burn fossil fuels and think we need to find a cleaner way to produce energy. The conservatives show that it’s the earth natural cycle and that the earth has been heating and cooling through out history. My views lean toward the conservatives side I believe in facts and proof.
It was once believed that there must have been some sort of catastrophic even that wiped out their civilization. Maybe a volcanic eruption, disease outbreak similar to the Black Plague that wiped out a quarter of Europe during the middle ages, or perhaps even war. Scholars and scientists are now looking at the possibility of it being a combination of those things. In the lowland, the Mayans population is believed to have been extremely dense. If overpopulation was a factor, this might help us understand why it diminished so quickly.
