The essay opens up with McKibben talking about how the political campaign against global warming is flawed because at our current point there is nothing much that can be done to fix it.(Mckibben,1) He then goes to state that humans are the biggest culprit behind global warming and supports this by giving examples such as SUVs and American ignorance.(2,9) He concludes by saying that if ten percent of America were to go green, it still would not save the planet, but ten percent could get the government’s attention to pass laws making everyone go green.

My father and grandfather, as well as my Apologia science textbooks have given me information contrary to the idea of global warming. Therefore, I do not see any point in Mckibben’s argument. The recent weather should provide some support to my belief. My father jokingly said we should sue Al Gore on the grounds that his efforts have caused the ozone layer to grow to such level that the sun’s rays can’t come through thus putting us on the road for another ice-age!
McKibben talks about global warming causing devastating monster storms in his second paragraph. I can dispute that. Monster storms are not happening because of global warming. They have been an infrequent occurrence since before mankind started recording the weather. If you were to ask atmospheric experts when the deadliest hurricanes were, the most recent one that comes to mind is Hurricane Katrina back in 2005. I was a little boy at the time and was ignorant of the fact that all throughout the storm, thousands of people were dying and thousands more losing their homes. The strongest hurricane before that was the great Okeechobee hurricane of 1928, said...
