Climate Change In The Ecosystem
733 wordsToday, scientist argue over the consequences of global warming. Scientist say that the heating of the atmosphere can influence many health problems. Some of the related problems due to global warming are death to heat waves and other climate changes, and infectious diseases. With the atmosphere temperature rising, we all will be at risk. The climate not only harms our bodies, it can also harm our crops and waters. Floods and droughts associated with global warming can undermine our health in oth...
1997 98 El Nino
343 wordsEl Nino may be returning to affect weather worldwide Waters in the tropical Pacific Ocean are warming, a change that could mean a return of the El Nino, a climate phenomenon that can affect weather worldwide. The warming was reported Thursday by the federal Climate Prediction Center, a part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The agency said El Nino (pronounced El NEED-yo) could occur by early spring, but any impact on the United States would be unlikely before late summer, c...
Greenhouse Effect And Global Warming Recently
2,014 wordsThe Greenhouse Effect and Global Warming Recently, global warming has moved to a serious scientific issue. Because sunlight is constantly falling on the earth, the law of physics say that the planet has to radiate the same amount of energy back into space. Infrared radiation is sent out by the earth through the atmosphere, where molecules (carbon dioxide) hold outgoing radiation for a while, warming the surface. 1 The molecules are kind of like glass in a greenhouse which is why this process of ...
Effects Of Global Warming
974 wordsReptiles Enjoyed Warm Arctic (Global Warming) An article written by ABC News writer Kenneth Chang discusses the change in climate of the arctic from ninety million years ago. Seven hundred miles from the North Pole, lies an island called Axel Heiberg, a barren land that scientists have dug up fossil bones of a cold-blooded reptile known as a champsosaur. How does this happen in an arctic, freezing land? How does a reptile that needs the warmth of the sun to survive, live in a frigid climate? Wel...
Permafrost And The Warming Of The Atmosphere
446 wordsThe global warming is caused by emissions of over 20 gases into the atmosphere. The major contributors are carbon dioxide (CO 2), ozone, methane, nitrous oxide and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Although these gases are produced by many industrial processes, the major source is the burning of fossil fuels in boilers, furnaces and automobile engines. When released into the air in large quantities, these gases cause the earths atmosphere to warm by trapping the suns heat. Infrared radiation that woul...
Global Climate Change
1,283 wordsIntroduction 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...
Increasing Temperature Of The Earth's Climate
905 wordsHumankind is conducting an ongoing experiment to see what will happen to our health and to the well being of the planet when changes in the earth's climate are made. This experiment is called global warming. Global warming is allegedly changing the world, as we know it. The concern of global warming is the increasing temperature of the earth's climate, which is expected to warm even further because of human activities that include the burning of fossil fuels to run cars and trucks, heat homes an...
Global Warming 4 The Committee
1,499 wordsGlobal Warming 1 Global Warming: Fact or Fiction Debbie S. Moran Columbia Southern University Global Warming 2 Global Warming: Fact or Fiction For many years now, the subject of global warming has been the cause of heated debates throughout the world. The theory is based on the idea that greenhouse gasses are accumulating in Earth's atmosphere as a result of human activities, causing surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures to rise. Debates have covered its causes and effects, ...
