  • 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 Sea Level
    957 words
    Is global warming a serious threat As human technology has been developed by scientists and researchers, we not only get a comfort in living throughout our life but it also helps people to find more jobs and less popery. However, on the other hand, there are some increasing problems on our planet earth due to human activities. They increased the global temperature about 0.5 F to 1.1 F (0.3 0.6 C) since the last half of the 19th century (Global warming 1). The increase in global warming causes th...
  • Primary Cause Of Global Warming
    3,130 words
    Introduction Global warming is not a myth it is a fact. It has been proven that the temp has gone up in the last 2 decades. Yes, it is possible to stop it and even fix it. At the rate we are going it will be the same as it was in 1980 by 2050. Yes I think that global warming is a fact to be reckoned with. But I agree with both sides because both are right each in their own way. It is proven that the earth has been cooling down over the last 6,000 years since the Holocene Maximum. That is a fact!...
  • Stage Of Frostbite
    535 words
    Frostbite occurs when skin tissue and blood vessels are damaged from exposure to temperatures below 32 degrees fahrenheit. It mostly affects the toes, fingers, earlobes, chin, cheeks and nose, body parts which are often left uncovered in cold temperatures. Frostbite can occur rapidly or gradually, depending on the temperature conditions and how long it is exposed. Frostbite has three stages. They are frost nip, superficial frostbite, and deep frostbite. Frost nip occurs when you have this pins a...
  • Effects Of Global Warming On Human Health
    1,025 words
    Global warming is an increase in the earth's temperature due to fossil fuels, industry, and agricultural processes caused by human, natural, and other gas emissions. (Melissa Phillips). This results in an increased emission of greenhouse gases. (Caroline Quatman). Short-wave solar radiation sinks into the Earth's atmosphere and warms its surface; while longwave infrared radiation emitted by earth's surface is absorbed, and then re-emitted by trace gases. (Brent C. Willhoite) Climate changes occu...
  • Environmental Effects Of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide
    2,720 words
    It is ironic that fifty two years before hosting the 1997 United Nations Conference on Climate Change, the city of Kyoto had barely missed being destroyed. It was one of four cities considered as primary targets by President Harry Truman's secretary of war, Henry L. Stimson. The others were Kokura, Hiroshima, and Niigata. Gale E. Christianson describes Kyoto in her book Greenhouse as a magnificent city surpassed only by Tokyo in the number of its institutions of higher learning. Kyoto served as ...
  • 1997 1998 Winter Effects Of El Nino
    1,550 words
    There's trouble in the air. Specifically, in the West Coast of the Americas, where the sea surface has been heated to abnormal extremes by an ominous, intermittent flood of hot water called El Nino. The term. "El-Nino", which means "the child", was originally in reference to a warm current arriving annually during the Christmas season off the coast of Peru and Ecuador. The term was later restricted to the particularly strong periodic warming that disrupt the local fish and bird populations, and ...
  • 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...
  • Plants Rate Of Heat Production
    619 words
    I believe that some plants produce as much heat for their weight as birds do, which are the greatest heat producers of all. It is even harder to believe that some are able to thermo regulate, which means that they actually alter their heat production to keep their temperature constant in fluctuating air temperatures. This is similar to what mammals do. The article I am reviewing tells about few a plants that do this, and how they do it. There are only three plants which have yet been shown to re...
  • Cold Weather Vs Hot
    305 words
    Each year as the temperature drops people dread the cold weather. That's not the case at all for me. I look forward to seeing the weather drop and the snow fall. During the warm weather the temperature varies from hot to mildly warm and at night it cools down. There are wind, rain, and heat storms. The days are longer, there is more plant life, and several animals come out of hibernation. During the cold weather the temperature varies from mildly warm to freezing cold. There are hail, and snow s...
  • Increased Water Temperatures
    1,859 words
    Environmental effects of global warming The greenhouse effect and global warming are issues that are talked about by geologists all the time. The greenhouse effect is a natural process that keeps the earth at temperatures that are livable. Energy from the sun warms the earth when its heat rays are absorbed by greenhouse gasses and become trapped in the atmosphere. Some of the most common greenhouse gasses are water vapor, carbon dioxide, and methane. If there were no greenhouse gasses, very few ...
  • Skeptics Of The Global Warming Problem
    1,622 words
    There are many problems concerning the environment. Pollution, destruction of the rainforests, and the consumption of all of our planet's natural resources are just a few. None of these issues quite compare to the problem of global warming. Global warming is a problem that affects not just some people, but everything and everyone. People must take action to stop global warming and must realize the severity of this problem before it is too late. The future depends on what we do now to slow the pr...
  • Record Temperatures On Land
    924 words
    Many people disagree on the issue concerning global warming. Some believe that human activities, various forms of polluting, are the main cause of global warming. Others think that not only have humans not affected the planet by any significant amount, but that not much global warming has even occurred. Many scientists think that pollution is the cause of global warming and the greenhouse effect. There is a lot of evidence to support this theory. In the United States alone, almost 15,000 pounds ...
  • Carbon Dioxide From The Atmosphere
    691 words
    The greenhouse effect, what exactly is this? The sun supplies the energy to warm the earth. The atmosphere absorbs outgoing reflected thermal radiation to keep then earth warmer than it would be otherwise. That is the greenhouse effect. Just like a greenhouse, it stays warm because the closed windows prevent the air from inside to cool by circulating. The main concern about the greenhouse effect is the constant warming of the earth. Scientists fear that this warming may be a risk to humans, plan...
  • Due To The Increase In Man's Activities
    469 words
    The Green House effect is the rise in temperature that the Earth experiences because certain gases in the atmosphere trap energy from the sun. These gases are transparent to the radiation from the sun, but opaque to outgoing radiation by the Earth. This is a natural phenomenon responsible for maintenance of the temperature which makes life possible. Without such a phenomenon our planet would experience extreme temperatures just like on the Moon. However, due to the increase in man's activities, ...
