  • Normal Rise Of Temperature Around The World
    1,194 words
    What happens when too much carbon dioxide gets omitted into the Earths atmosphere The condition known as Global Warming occurs. Global Warming is the rising of the Earths surface temperature due to chemicals in the atmosphere. Global Warming has many threats on the climate and even the health of the people on this planet. Some of these threats include the altering of crop seasons and even effect the way organisms survive on the planet. The first thing I think I should discuss when talking about ...
  • Global Temperature
    634 words
    Global Warming The main gases that cause the greenhouse effect are water vapor, carbon dioxide (CO 2), and methane, which come naturally, mainly from animal manure. Other gases like nitrogen oxide and chlorofluorocarbons; man made gases, get caught in the atmosphere as well, also the decay of animals and respiration are two main natural sources of carbon dioxide. In my opinion, the people of the world should try to slow down the emission of man maid greenhouse gases and find ways to restore the ...
  • Last 100 Years The Global Temperatures
    1,143 words
    Greenhouse Effect The greenhouse effect occurs when gases such as methane, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide and CFCs trap heat in the atmosphere by acting as a pane of glass in a car. |The glass lets the sun light in to make heat but when the heat tries to get out the gases absorb the heat. Holding this heat in causes heat waves, droughts and climate changes which could alter our way of living. The main gases that cause the greenhouse effect are water vapor, carbon dioxide (CO 2), and methane whic...
  • Global Warming And Climate Change Global
    2,791 words
    The Effects of Global Warming Global warming during the past century has been so gradual as to be nearly imperceptible. Neither does it adhere to a regular schedule or predictable pattern, which perhaps explains why doubters and nay-sayers still dispute the whole idea. Their ranks are shrinking, however, in the face of a growing body of evidence. Experts now tell us that if we do nothing to reduce the release of heat-trapping gases into the atmosphere, we can expect temperatures to rise during t...
  • Carbon Dioxide The Temperature Of The Earth
    2,409 words
    Global Warming Mission Plana. Analysis of the Problem 1. History of the Problem Some scientist's have been concerned since 1896 about what might happen if there were 5.5 billion tons carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. In 1961 a British scientist did an experiment showing that the carbon in the air was absorbing some of the sun's radiation. Afterward a Swedish scientist, SuanteArrhenius, found out if the radiation of the sun was trapped in the carbon dioxide the temperature of the earth would incr...
  • Enrichment Of The Atmosphere With Co 2
    328 words
    A warmer climate would produce the greatest gain in temperatures at northern latitudes and much less change near the equator. Not only would this foster a longer growing season and open up new territory for farming but it would mitigate harsh weather. The contrast between the extreme cold near the poles and the warm moist atmosphere on the equator drives storms and much of the earth's climate. This difference propels air flows; if the disparity is reduced, the strength of winds driven by equator...
  • 1 F Warmer Temperatures
    1,760 words
    Are We Really In Danger Lately, when some environmental problem arises, scientists, experts, and the media quickly put people as the source. When it comes to the issue of the deteriorating environment, one can find an almost infinite amount of information stating that we are to blame for the hole in the ozone layer or we are to blame for global warming. The information may be persuading, but when one looks at the other side of the story, a whole new philosophy about the environment develops, one...
  • Current Effects Of Global Warming
    2,231 words
    This essay will address the question, what is global warming, and how is it affecting the Earth and its inhabitants Despite much media coverage of the role of human activity in the furthering of harmful global warming effects, the majority of the general public does not view global warming as a definite and imminent danger. Robert T. Watson supports this in his comment about society's failure to recognize the severity of a potential environmental disaster as a result of global warming. It is imp...
  • Effect Of Increased Amounts Of Carbon Dioxide
    934 words
    Throughout the world, the presence of particular diseases and other threats to human health depend largely on the local climate. Extreme variation in temperature can directly, and indirectly, cause the loss of human life. The threat of a gradual increase in temperature could be catastrophic to the world, as we know it. As recently as 1999, a heat wave killed more than 250 people in Chicago alone (Union of Concerned Scientists). Many right off such an event as a natural disaster. However, scienti...
  • Global Temperature Changes
    1,304 words
    GLOBAL WARMING, A FALLACY IN THE MAKING For the last 20 years or so the subject of global warming has spawned heated debate among the world's brightest minds. Its causes and effects, if either actually exists, have been hotly debated. The most popular hypothesis is called the greenhouse effect with the agreed upon cause being green house gasses. These gasses are all naturally occurring and include water vapor, methane, oxygen, and the now infamous carbon dioxide. Greenhouse gasses exist in the a...
  • Satellites Cover 99 Of The Earth's Surface
    400 words
    My position on global warming is that despite the media's claim of a rising climate, in reality there is no cause for concern. Inane reports regarding global warming are yuppie-tree-hugger propaganda. The information defending their case is misleading and inaccurate. The truth of the matter is that our impact on the global temperature is inconsequential. Also, any effort to slow down the greenhouse effect is an unnecessary burden on our economy. According to Dr. Roy Spencer, meteorologist and te...
  • Carbon Dioxide From The Air
    1,218 words
    The main gases that cause the greenhouse effect are water vapor, carbon dioxide (CO 2), and methane, which comes mainly from animal manure. Other gases like nitrogen oxide and chloroflurocarbons, man made gases, get caught in the atmosphere as well. The decay of animals and respiration are two main natural sources of carbon dioxide. In my opinion, we the people of the world should try to slow down the emission of greenhouse gases and / or find ways to balance the gases so the climate doesnt chan...
  • Ice Sheets And Rise In Sea Level
    1,340 words
    Imagine a world where the landlocked state of Idaho is now prime oceanfront property and almost all of the major cities in the world are covered by water, a place where the average temperature ten degrees higher, and instead of California, Canada and Siberia now have the prime agricultural climates and tropical diseases are worldwide (Kyoto 13). This isn't a science fiction movie. It is the predicted worst-case scenario if we continue to pollute the environment with greenhouse gases. Global warm...
  • Drastic Temperature Changes
    257 words
    The latest data confirm what a growing number of scientists have been saying for several years. The Earth's climate is rapidly changing. According to a report from the Smithsonian Institution and several other U.S. agencies, global temperatures increased by about one degree Fahrenheit over the course of the last century, and will likely rise even more during this one. Scientists predict that unless greenhouse gas emissions are reduced greatly, temperatures in the United States will rise by about...
  • James E Sea Level Rise Global Warming
    1,248 words
    Life is Changing Global warming is the most urgent environmental problem the world is facing. Few, if any, trends are more important to our future than climate change caused by human activities. This change is not beneficial. This warming trend occurring because of the buildup of greenhouse gases primarily carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide- which is a direct result of humans and the Industrial Revolution (EPA, 2000). These gasses are emitted profusely into the atmosphere by factories, c...
