Introduction and Literature review Our climate has become one of the most important issues in the recently of years. It has shaped public policy and affected how we do business. Knowing how climate change might impact humankind is of utmost significance. In this proposal, I am considering 5 variables for global warming initiatives in Bowling Green Ohio, and analyzing the data that I will collect. I want to know how these 5 variables are important for global warming in Bowling Green Ohio. Many people know the global warming, but most of them do not know it accurately. Now I want to introduce global warming in details to the readers. The definition of global warming is the continuing slight increase in the Earth’s average temperature which scientists believe will result in climate change through the world (Waay, 2006). Weather is the day-to-day behavior temperature, precipitation, and other weather elements. Climate is the result of many years’ worth of daily weather. Meteorologists study climate by looking at weather observations taken over about the past century, and pale meteorologists study ice cores and tree rings to learn how the climate has changed over the past several millennia. Climate is measured in terms of many centuries. There are a number of ways to measure climate change. They are including temperature, precipitation, biomass, sea level, solar activity, volcanic eruptions, and chemical. Different methods can be used into different situations (Pachauri & Reisinger, 2007). Estimations of what the atmosphere was like thousands of years ago are often gleaned by measuring gas concentrations in air bubbles trapped in polar or glacial ice cores, we only have about 125 years of reliable instrumental temperature data. Then I want to introduce another definition which is also very important for my proposal, this definition is about greenhouse effect. Greenhouse effect is warming of the surface and lower atmosphere of a planet that is caused by conversion of solar radiation into heat in a process involving selective transmission of short wave solar radiation by the atmosphere, its absorption by the planet’s surface, and re-radiation as infrared which is absorbed and partly reradiated back to the surface by atmospheric gases (Harcourt, 2010). Without the Greenhouse Effect, life as we know it would not exist on Earth. Some gasses in the atmosphere, especially water vapor and carbon dioxide, absorb heat and radiate it downward, warming the planet’s surface. The Greenhouse Effect is a good thing; the problem is how the concentrations of atmospheric gasses are altered by both human and natural influences. Although there are a few spots that have cooled slightly, much of the Earth is experiencing an increase in

In the interest of fighting climate change, most of us avoid buying SUVs — fortress-like vehicles that aren’t necessary unless one intends to take the whole family for a spin through downtown Baghdad.

Summary 1: Changing minds to prevent climate change
According to Michael Price, a monitor of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the author of the article, “Changing minds to prevent climate change,” psychologists could work together with policymakers and the public in order to reverse the catastrophic climate change trends. This may be achieved by policymakers and the public adopting behavioral changing attitude based on systematic approach. Some of the ways to achieve…
Climate change is a more general term that refers to changes in many climatic factors (such as temperature and precipitation) from the global to the local scale. These changes are happening in response to global warming and other factors at different rates and in different ways. For example on a large scale, the United States has become wetter over the 20th century, while the Sahel region of central Africa has become drier. In California, global warming and associated climate change is decreasing…
Climate change is an inevitable phenomenon that is being experienced globally in various forms such as temperature rise. Sea level rise, droughts, floods, hurricanes, landslides, etc. According to the forth assessment report of the IPCC project even with immediate implementation of mitigation strategies global climate change will continue for decades. Climate change is inflicting serious consequences on human wellbeing and will continue to inflict damages in the future. It is estimated that mean…
question are ‘climate change’ and ‘climate change sceptics’ as a whole, with the question further asking if sceptical views on climate change present a relevant case to the climate change theory. Firstly we should ask what climate change is. Climate change is the significant change to weather patterns over a certain period of time, whether they are considered either directly or indirectly linked to the Earths natural processes or human actions (Hardy 2003, p11; Pielke 2004, p31). A climate change scepic…
Climate change and global warming, is the Hype really true, and does it matter?
This is the unfinished debate on global warming, is manmade climate change in true evidence and if global warming was to happen would it matter?

The global climate change treaty states that we should endeavour to avoid “dangerous interference with the climate system.” But, there is no true definition about what “dangerous…

One of today’s greatest controversial topics is about global warming. Many scientists today are expressing their concern about climate change. Scientist believes that the earth is warming at a rapid pace and that there have been many signs to warn us of this. There are many causes of global warming, and people are unaware of the effects of climate change. There are things that can be done to help decrease the rapid pace of climate change.
Human activity is a…
new future. Understanding these forces and the changes they bring has always given us the upper hand, allowing us to adapt and embrace to the new norm. Some changes however have left society in distress as we now experience. Resent changes in the earth’s climate have given way to the theory of global warming threating the world with social unrest and environmental disasters. As whole countries, cultures, races and governments fall victim to this global epidemic, we can understand how these different…
impacting the Earth s climate. Carbon dioxide traps heat form the sun. This effect is considered global warming, which is often referred to as the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect traps solar heat, like a green house for plants, which causes the solar energy from being released. Global warming or the greenhouse effect is believed to have been causing our temperatures to rise. If global warming persists, many problems will begin to occur in the coming decades.
Global warming has caused some speculation…
