Luis Marenco Mr. Moreno-AP Environmental Science Global Warming

Global warming has practically been the number one topic of discussion in today’s scientific research. What is global warming? Global warming is an increase in the average temperature in the earth’s atmosphere. For many years now, there have been discussions on whether global warming is caused by man-made carbon dioxide or natural greenhouse gases. Many scientists believe that man-made carbon dioxide is not the cause of global warming but there are some that strongly disagree. According to some scientists, “The global warming alarm is dressed up science but its propaganda.” Where are they going with that exactly? Well, politicians have turned this serious issue into a world-wide campaign. Coming up with ideas to gain money and make people believe they can save the world with such use less products. Some will agree that the effort put into such campaigns is in fact helping the environment and causing less pollution. The scientists in the “Great Global Warming Swindle” documentary believe that man-made CO2 theory is all lies! There is no evidence linking global warming to green house gases. But then again, if CO2 increases in the atmosphere the temperature goes up. The records show the opposite of that and that is where it gets confusing. “I believe in global warming, I don’t believe human CO2 is causing the warming” states Professor Tim Ball. Global Warming is a new morality. The earth’s climate is always changing. The scientific evidence does not support notion that climate change is caused by carbon dioxide, whether if it is man-made or natural. The scientists in the “Great Global Warming Swindle” believe that the climate variation is clearly natural. The climate has always changed without help from humans. Dr. Piers Corbyn says that “None of the major climate changes in the last 100 years can be explained by CO2.” Their belief is that the IPCC is only political and has changed into a political activist movement. Their solution is clear, the alarm of global warming is caused by industrial society. Global warming began before cars, planes, etc., were invented. Most of the rise in temperature occurred before 1940, where industrial production was relatively insignificant. Then when the industrial revolution expanded the temperature dropped significantly. So when they say that CO2 causes global warming, clearly there is something that doesn’t fit. CO2 forms a small part of the earth’s atmosphere, .054%. CO2 is following temperature changes. It is a gas produced by all living things, so it doesn’t make sense that human CO2 is the cause of global warming if we all exhale it. Research shows that climate is derived by clouds, clouds are derived by cosmic rays, and cosmic rays are derived by the sun. Their conclusion is that the sun is deriving climate, not CO2. National Geographic states “that there are several greenhouse gases responsible for warming, and humans emit them in a variety of ways. Most come from the combustion of fossil fuels in cars, factories and electricity production. The gas responsible for the most warming is carbon dioxide, also called CO2. Other contributors include methane released from landfills and agriculture (especially from the digestive systems of grazing animals), nitrous oxide from fertilizers, gases used for refrigeration and industrial processes, and the loss of forests that would otherwise store CO2.” But this goes back to the temperature drop in the start of the Industrial Revolution, how is it possible? In Al Gore’s documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth” his main point of view, is that global warming is real, potentially catastrophic, and human-caused. The film impacted many in an attempt to change their minds about the issue. The film was successful in a way that made human beings act and try to save the world from global warming. His
