Is global warming being accelerated as a result of human interaction? This question has been asked over and over again since global warming was first noticed and brought to our attention. Multiple claims have been made that this anomaly is caused by human interference with the planet. There are also those that strongly deny these accusations. To detect the truth, one must explore both sides of the story. Studies have been done by countless experts to support their side of the story; therefore, that is what has to be examined.
There are several reasons why people blame humans as the cause of global warming. The primary reason for the pro human causation side is the problem with humans ...view middle of the document...
As one can tell, this is a very unrealistic goal. That being said, studies show that 37% of human-caused methane emissions come solely from the agriculture industry. This gives one an idea of how powerless one is to stop some things. Although we cannot get rid of cow farts, there are numerous ways to be able to make a difference in the battle against global warming.
A more realistic goal to strive for would be to reduce the use of fossil fuels. It is necessary that we cut back on the use of fossil fuels if there is any hope of meeting the two degree target. The two degree target is a goal that has been set to decrease the global temperature by two degrees. Cutting back on fossil fuels would mean sacrificing a lot of luxuries. That would mean cutting back on driving, using less power, and cutting hot water use. These are just a few of the many things that one can do to help the environment. All of these methods would only solve a little chunk of the problem; however, everything helps in the end.
Just how much of a threat is global warming? This is a question that not many people know the answer to, merely due to lack of interest. It is a sad truth, but global warming is reported as only going to get worse if nothing is done about the problem. If the greenhouse gas emissions continue to skyrocket, then it could cause catastrophic events, such as the destruction of coral reefs, hurricanes, tornadoes, and much more. This can serve as inspiration, so that everyone will not have to see the horrific events that could occur if change does not come.
Is the world making any progress fighting global warming? That depends on who one asks. The most common answer one will run into; however, is that it is getting worse. The use of fossil fuels and CO2 emissions are a continuous problem. Humans have become so accustomed to using these things that are destroying the environment. In the long run, it will all come down to whether or not humans can break their addictions of using things that are harmful to the environment.
There are; however, different sides to the story. Not everyone agrees that global warming is getting worse. To be fair, there is also substantial evidence saying that global warming is not getting worse, but better. With all the new steps out to help halt the progress of global warming, there have been signs of it pausing or stopping periodically. Although this is a good thing, it has not stopped it completely. Global warming, at this point, is far from being over. This is a problem to be solved over time, a marathon not a sprint.
How exactly is global warming affecting humans? There are countless ways that the human population is being terrorized by this threat. Food prices, for example, are rising at a staggering rate due to the unpredictable weather. This makes it a lot more difficult for farmers to be able to grow the amount of crops that are being demanded. Also, some regions are noticing a shortage of...
