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 of carbon oxide per one unit. The effect of global warming causes rises in sea levels. With the ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica melting sea levels are predicted to rise worldwide according to scientists. Another effect of global warming is that tropical storms are becoming more severe. Since 1981 the strongest tropical storm winds have increased significantly. This is thought to not be stopping and is caused by rising ocean temperatures. According to NASA’s institute for Space Studies the average temperature has increased by 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit. (0.8 degrees Celsius). According to many different climate studies the past two decades have been the hottest in 400 years. The most effects have been felt in the Arctic. The areas like Alaska, western Canada, and eastern Russia’s average temperatures have risen at twice the global average. The rapid disappearing of the Arctic ice causes speculation that the area may have a completely ice free summer by 2040. Another thing we have seen that supports that global warming exists is that the glaciers in Montana’s Glacier National Park has only 27 glaciers compared to in 1910 when it had 150. The burning of fossils fuels and industrial factories produces more amounts of carbon dioxide than the ocean and plants can absorb. This excess carbon dioxide stays in the atmosphere causing the Earth to heat up much more than it…
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…
Relationship between Global warming and the thinning of the ozone layer
The ozone layer is a layer in the earth's atmosphere containing relatively high concentrations of ozone. Global warming is climate change that causes an increase in the average temperature of the lower atmosphere. I believe there is a relationship between ozone layer and global warming. The following are some reasons there is a relationship between global warming, damage of the ozone layer and the temperature…
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…
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…
identified as global warming by climatologist, which is the negative result of overproduction of greenhouse gas such as CO2 and methane. Multiple reasons lead to the climate change, including burning fossil fuels, deforestation and inappropriate practices in agriculture, as these human activities accelerate greenhouse gas emitting. (Johnson, 2013, Course book 1)Although opponents who deny the temperature of the earth is increasing due to human activity claim that the global warming is a natural change…
Growing up one of the first things we learn about in science class is global warming. How much we drive, how much light usage in our homes. Everyday life affects the outcome of the future existence on earth. We do harm by misusing our natural resources. Some scientists argue that volcanoes have some fault, but over the years volcanoes have been less active and global warming has increased. It is all explained by how we as humans live our life every day. The larger human population becomes…

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…
