  • Their Emissions Under The Kyoto Protocol
    1,112 words
    Kyoto? As the amount of greenhouse gas emissions increases a plan of action has been introduced, know as the 'Kyoto Protocol. ' As of July 2002 seventy-six of earth's one-hundred ninety countries have agreed to cut their emissions under the 'Kyoto Protocol. ' However, only Japan has set some goals, that currently seem unattainable. Alberta, and many of the people and businesses in Alberta are opposed the the protocol which Canada has chosen to accept. Climate change is a serious, global, long-te...
  • Global Climate Change
    827 words
    As the world's expanding population burns large quantities of fossil fuels and simultaneously cuts down large expanses of forests worldwide, the concentrations of CO 2 and other greenhouse gases are building up in the atmosphere. "The green house effect is the (imperfect) analogy used to explain the atmospheric phenomenon that keeps our planet warm enough to sustain life". There is mounting evidence that this shift in Earth's atmosphere will lead to global changes and potentially major climatic ...
  • Short Term Effects Of Climatic Changes
    900 words
    Climatic Change and Its Effect on Society There has been a significant climatic change that has taken place throughout the years on Earth. These changes have effected society in more than one way. However, there is nothing society can do about the long term influences of climatic changes. Society has tended to address the short term effects of climatic changes that influence the global temperatures within the life span of present generations. The following will show how climatic changes does eff...
  • Ghg Emissions Of The Company's Manufacturing Operations
    2,825 words
    The humanity is currently facing one its biggest problem ever. Indeed, the Earth is warming and consequences might be devastating for the future generations. There is a general agreement among scientists that Earth's climate is being affected by industrial society. Industry affects global climate by releasing greenhouse gases (GHGs). The most significant GHG is carbon dioxide (CO 2). While some GHGs occur naturally, others are released in the atmosphere by certain human activities such as the bu...
  • Frequency And Intensity Of El Nio Events
    973 words
    The story of El Nio begins on the eastern margins of the Pacific Ocean. For centuries, Peruvian fishermen have known that the usually cold and nutrient rich waters from time to time become exceptionally warm, accompanied by collapsing fish stocks. At the same time, torrential rain and flooding of the rivers of the Andes occur. This abnormal situation returns every 3-7 years and, since the event usually peaks around Christmas, the fishermen named the phenomenon "El Nio" ("el nio" is Spanish for b...
  • Increase Of Green House Gases Concentration
    1,163 words
    Clouded Atmosphere The concentration of the atmosphere's main greenhouse gases specifically, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and water vapor, have increased significantly during the industrial age. These high concentrations are predicted to continue in the atmosphere for thousands of years to come. This increase in specially carbon dioxide, increases the infrared energy taken in by the atmosphere, and warming the earth's surface. The Global mean temperature over the past 150 years has ri...
  • Waste Into The Environment Causes Health
    1,340 words
    Did you ever think that something meant to aid in the advance of humans could be potentially fatal at the same time? What about a disease that was considered 'dead'; , resurfacing and killing unsuspecting people? What about the fact that we as human beings are ruining the only place for us to live, the earth? These questions sound outrageous, right? Wrong, these issues are considered environmental problems that we will soon face. These issues are very serious and many people have no idea that th...
  • Of The Impacts Of Climate Change
    899 words
    Weather changes all the time. The average pattern of weather, called climate, usually stays pretty much the same for centuries if it is left to itself. However, the earth is not being left alone. People are taking actions that can change the earth and its climate in significant ways. Carbon dioxide is the main culprit. The single human activity that is most likely to have a large impact on the climate is the burning of "fossil fuels" such as coal, oil and gas. These fuels contain carbon. Burning...
  • Effects Of Climate Change
    1,213 words
    Global Warming The 19th as well as the 20th century have been the most prolific time periods in modern history as concerns science, technology and socio-economic development. Within these two centuries we witnessed the discovery of electricity, the invention of the engine which played a very important role in the maturity of the well-known industrial revolution. Through this revolution people began to live in a more decent and comfortable manner; new commodities were produced and entire new kind...
  • Urgency Of Global Warming And Climatic Change
    4,382 words
    I. SUMMARY: This paper looks at the controversial issue of climatic change. In particular, it develops the question of if and why earths climate is changing The roles of man, naturally occurring trends, and earths cycles are considered, and an outlook for what can be expected in the near and distant future is given. The uneasiness of modern man arises from a rupture between himself and nature that leaves him homeless within the universe... William Barrett II. INTRODUCTION Over the past years mos...
  • Increase In Anthropogenic Greenhouse Gas Emissions
    756 words
    Greenhouse gases are important in maintaining Earths habitable climate. These greenhouse gases must fall within a narrow range. Too much of any of the greenhouse gases can induce climatic changes, in particular, global warming. Of the greatest concern are the anthropogenic sources of greenhouse gases because they are steadily increasing in concentration in the atmosphere, and therefore increasing the natural ability of the greenhouse effect. As the debate continues on whether or not global warmi...
  • Global Warming And Other Climate Changes
    663 words
    A perfect example of Canadian foreign policy can be the discussion on the ratification of Kyoto Protocol. The Kyoto agreement has the potential to affect every sector of society because most anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, particularly CO 2, come from energy production and use. It will be necessary to have full cooperation of all countries, both developed and developing, to fulfill the goals set out at the Kyoto Convention. Global warming will be a great concern for future generations, b...
  • Climate Change And World Food Supply
    761 words
    The world needs to think of how the climate is changing the food supply of the earth. The climate is doing some really bad things to the earth. The atmosphere is also not in good shape because of climate change. Humans now need to think of how climate change is affecting people. Climate change is affecting the food supply of the world.

  • Global Climate Change
    1,283 words
    Introduction The ecological consequences of global climate change are expected to be drastic although not much is known as to how individual species will react to these changes. Irrespective of the causes of climate change, whether anthropogenic or natural, it is imperative that we address these concerns, as they will have widespread impacts on the human species, both directly and indirectly through forcing's on other species. The climate is not expected to shift evenly and the ways in which cer...
  • Greenhouse Gases In The Earth's Atmosphere
    1,029 words
    "The snow-capped mountains and glaciers are disappearing, coral reefs and the rich, colorful variety of life they support are dying as we watch. Entire ecosystems are breaking up as individual species struggle to adapt, some less successfully than others". The heat is on... The topic today - the challenge of global climate change, a myth or a reality? Global climate change is identified as one of the greatest threats to the planet. Governments and scientists alike have agreed that the problem is...
  • Effects Of Climate Change On Crops
    3,441 words
    Global Warming - Its Implications on the Human Population Though there is some scepticism that climate change is a result of human actions, it is unlikely to be a natural event. Some dismiss the phenomenon known as "global warming" as a hoax, and claim that yuppies driving SUVs could not possibly change the overall temperature of the earth. In a sense, this misguided notion is true- but climate change is much more than "yuppies driving SUVs". It is industry freely burning fossil fuels to make a ...
