Global Warming: It Can Be Stopped The world has changed drastically in the past 50 years from the hippie era to fast food consumers. Some people believe that the change in industry and the advancement of technology and industries increase, so does the pollution. The earth has been affected by people having a lifestyle in which they are careless and lazy. It is understandable that society wastes. It is easier to just throw all your garbage in one bag rather than sort it into recyclable bins. This new lifestyle is causing us to go into global meltdown. Since the world is changing at an unbelievable rate due to pollution and mistreatment of nature, countries need to join together and become more eco-friendly to stop global warming. There are three main types of recyclable wastes. They are paper, plastic and cans (metal). All of these can be reused by recycling, but yet some choose to litter these products. While driving in your car you are more than likely to notice these products on the grounds or in the ditches. These renewable resources are often in the form of receipts, cups, soda cans, bags, or bottles. People should pick up a habit of not littering. The government can do many things to help with pollution. They can create acts against pollution, such as littering. If you get caught littering you can be fined and have to pay hefty fee. However, the government should increase the fee so that there is less pollution. States also have the power to control their own pollution by setting their own pollution levels. Smog detection laws have been created in some states to help against pollution (Mongillo 7). To control smog, states require a certain level of catalytic converters on Smog, states require a certain level of catalytic converters on cars. A catalytic converter is a part that is placed in the exhaust system of your car to reduce smog (10). The sea is one of the most important aspects of the earth. So many creatures live in the sea. These beautiful creatures are slowly dying due to the increase of pollution in the sea. Pollution in the sea is mainly the result of man dumping its non-renewable wastes into the ocean. This is the main cause of the destruction of coral reefs, mangroves, and salt marshes (49). It is not only the ocean and sea that is becoming polluted, it is water everywhere. In the United States 218 million people live within 10 miles of a polluted river, lake, costal area or stream (36). Water pollution can come from one of two ways. One way is where dangerous substances are emitted directly into a body of water. These substances can come from power plants, factories or mining operations (42). The other way is when harmful substances get into runoffs that lead into a larger body of water (42). These substances can come from pesticides, acid rain, fertilizers or road construction (42). The Fourth of July holiday is also a contributor to the polluting of waters. Many people near the coast line go the beach on the Fourth of July to shoot off fireworks. Thousands of pieces of litter from fireworks fall to the ground on these beaches. Most people do not pick up every piece of garbage that falls from their fireworks. Those pieces of garbage left behind end up in the ocean and the high tide comes and washes them away. This is an example of how the coastline has started to become toxic for all sea life near the coastline. Breathing clean air is one of the most amazing feelings. I can not imagine life without being able to breathe clean air. Living in North Dakota we are privileged with some of the cleanest air known to man (56). Air pollution is a major problem in bigger cities such as Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Washington D.C. These cities have to create their own laws on air pollution. One major law that was created was the law that limited smog output. Along with the advancement of technology, so came hazardous pollutants. Smog is a prime example of a hazardous pollutant that is
Global Warming Paper Cameron Conolly
For years many people have believed that we are causing the Earth to warm up faster. Global Warming is the heating of the climate. Others believe it is due to natural climate processes. Either way, we know that Global Warming is a serious issue for our Earth.
One of the reasons we think Global Warming is occurring is because of Orbital Variations. “Orbital Variations” is part of a theory developed by Milutin Milkankovic. An astonishing fact about Milankovic…
Rise of Modern Science
Following years of debate publicly on whether global warming is due to natural activities or is the result of mankind, evidence suggests that extreme climate and weather changes are caused by humans. Over the years, the earths’ climate has wavered many times, from periods of record breaking heat to the ice ages. Changes in the sun’s force and the earths’ course around it, along with natural elements such as; erupting…

Specific purpose: To convince my audience that global warming does exist and we can help put a stop to it.
I. What would you do if someone tells you that the foundation of your home is sinking? Would you try and fix it or would you let it sink slowly?
II. Today, I am going to help you recognize that global warming does exist, we are the main cause and we can do something to stop this.
III. It is important we all know this because before we know…
GLOBAL WARMING: NATURAL OR MAN-MADE
There is no question that there is an increase in Earth’s temperature and we are experiencing what is referred to as global warming. The Earth has experienced this many times in history on a much larger scale, but, humans did not exist (and would not have been able to exist) at the time. The questions now are whether human actions are accelerating the process of global warming and possibly decreasing Earth’s future sustainability; and, if so, what, if anything…
Global warming is one of the biggest social topics of our time. In addition, it is one of the most hotly contested. Nearly everyone believes in the greenhouse effect, which basically means that the sun's warmth is trapped in the Earth's atmosphere by the Earth's natural gasses such as: methane, ozone, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, water vapor, and chlorofluorocarbons. Without the greenhouse effect, we would not be able to live on Earth because it would be too cold. The concept of global warming…
Global Warming has become quite an alarming issue in the past decade. Although most people don’t find it directly affecting their everyday lives. This is the reason not much is being done about it. Some people are in complete denial of this phenomenon, while others are positive it is happening. I personally, believe global warming is happening. My argument is to prove global warming exists. It exists because of society’s everyday habits to use natural resources at an increasing rate…
Global Warming Real or Fake?
Global warming is the slow increase of the temperature of Earth’s atmosphere. It is caused by the greenhouse effect which is caused by the increasing levels of carbon dioxide, CFCs, and other pollutants. Another thing that is causing global warming is methane from agriculture and animals. Also the increase of chemical fertilizers contributes to global warming.
Chemical fertilizers are nitrogen rich. Nitrogen oxides have 300 more times the heat trapping capacity…
Global Warming and the Threat on the Existence of Life on Earth
Global warming is a very complex subject with much debate involved with the subject. Although some people do not see global as a threat to all life on Earth, it is a very serious problem, because of warming temperatures including the melting of the polar ice caps and ice sheets, extreme weather patterns, including tornados and hurricanes. If the human race do not curb the problems of carbon emissions…

Global Warming Research Paper
There is one thing that all people have in common, and that is that we all must live on this Earth. There is not one single person, group or nationality that can escape that truth, at least not yet. Mother Earth, as we call this beautiful planet that is our home, is completely irreplaceable and no amount of money can buy us a new one. We as humans are utterly stuck here, so the Earth's health and climate should be paramount…
Global Warming: True or False?
Global warming, most of us have a general idea of what it is but I’m going explain it in a little more detail. In a nutshell, it’s the steady rising of Earth’s temperature. What’s causing this is greenhouse gases plus the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is what happens when certain gases like carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and water vapour trap heat. These gases let in light but keep heat from escaping, causing the Earth to warm. The amount of greenhouse…
