Climate change is probably one of the biggest problems the world is going through in this day in age. Climate change is not only effect the present, but also the future in a dramatic way. Each year change is being reported all over the world and it’s starting to affect us more and more. A lot of individuals are realizing the significance of greenhouse gasses and are trying to find ways to keep the environment safe and clean. People all around the world are polluting everyday and don’t even realize it. When fossils fuels are burned it send Carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and the temperatures are rising exponentially. Scientists have studied this topic for many years and have said that the climate has been rising from the 1700’s and have been causes by natural causes and will always be happening. However it has become more prominent in the past few years. Humans don’t realize exactly how much our error the world is affecting everything. Carbon dioxide is the greenhouse gas that is causing the more increase in all of our temperature risings. Methane is the cause of 17% of man-made global warming and nitrous oxide is approximately 6%. We’ve had ice ages millions of years ago and now we have a roller coaster of changes. Industrial processes are putting out those greenhouse gases and it first affects the surface temperature. Then it slowly starts to warm up the ocean. If you live near the coast it will affect you the most. Weather related events have cause many catastrophes. Unfortunately, we see all of this going on and we do nothing about it. It’s a very small thing the people are asking of us. We…
sanctity of life argument is no longer convincing in this day in age.” Discuss.
The sanctity of life argument labels life as divine, as they say it’s a gift from God, due to this believers in the theory oppose all intended harm on human persons. Without a doubt, this statement most likely comes from an atheist’s perspective, as they don’t believe in the existence of a God and therefore condemn the argument and render it moot.
This argument hinges on one thing, which determines whether or not the theory…
“We have to face the reality of climate change. It is arguably the biggest threat we are facing today.” (William Hague). Climate change is the change in the patterns of the global climate, caused by the increase levels of carbon dioxide that are produced. The tropical forests that are being destroyed and the fossil fuels that are used every day are two of the causes of the large quantities of carbon dioxide that are released into the atmosphere. Climate change is an issue that affects us all and…

Climate Changes of the World
Just noticing the difference in the climate change in the thirty years that I have been alive is a little scary. I remember snow on Thanksgiving all the way through the New Year, now it’s pretty rare to see snow on the ground in our region for more than a week at a time. It seems as though the warm season is getting extensively longer and the amount of rain is getting exceptionally lessened. After seeing the outcome…
The problems facing the world today are great, and will require the efforts of billions of people working together to overcome them. How could such an endeavor occur in one day? The answer is that change begins inside oneself. The great change-agent Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world”. Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing themselves. Yet, once each individual is committed to change and acts upon that commitment, the world…
climate change is an issue that is affecting people all over the world.

Climate Change: Too hot to Handle
Our planet has a problem that it is getting warmer. Most of the scientists agree that this climate change is threatening our earth; human beings can be extinct probably in the near future. The cause and effects of this phenomenon has been studied which is greenhouse effect. The whole world is getting involved in this issue and looking for solutions. Australian Government (2013) explain that greenhouse effect is a natural phenomenon that increases temperature of…
Climate change is one of the most important scientific, economic threats facing the earth. There are many factors that lead to climate change, such as greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide and fossil fuels. Climate change is the consequence of unchecked pollution. When carbon emissions caused by human activity enter the air they have dangerous effects on the environment, the economy, and our wellbeing (1).
Global Warming is the increase of Earth's average surface temperature due to effect of greenhouse…
Climate Change Issues
Climate change is an issue that will affect every part of the planet, every area will be affected in some way. The earth runs in a cycle what happens at one end will eventually affect another. In recent decades glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plants and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner. The natural equilibrium of nature is changing; it has taken millions of years of evolution for planet earth to reach the inhabitable…
