One may believe Global Warming is tedious and a myth and show no concern for the environment surrounding them. The reason for choosing this topic of Global Warning is because Global Warming is a reality that the world must recognize. People must understand the many changes occurring on earth as well as the people all over the world have prevented global warming. The earth has many changes that have occurred in the past and further events waiting to occurring in the future. There are many facts to prove the people are not noticing the harm we are undertaking towards earth.
The earth has many changes that have occurred in the past and some that are going to transpire in the future. One could notice changes such as “Glaciers melting, plants and animals are being forced from their habitat, and the number of severe storms and droughts are increasing…” according to the documentary movie, An Inconvenient Truth. The evidence, scientists have gathered is magnificent, some of the most obvious signs are visible to the Arctic rising temperatures harming polar bears. Melting ice is dramatically changing the region’s unique landscapes and wildlife as well as peoples lives. Across the globe, other warning signs such as melting glaciers increasing the water sea level, major earthquakes, melting of the polar ice caps, and other major events all go back to the earth’s changes (See figure 1).
There are many facts the people are not noticing the harm one is doing to the earth. For example, burning fossil fuels, coal, gas, oil, and clearing forests dramatically increased the amount of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere. Global Warming is caused by the rise of carbon dioxide from vehicles, factories, and power stations. These outputs will not only affect the atmosphere and the sea but will change the land formation of the Earth (See figure 2) this visual can show the reader one of the many causes of man made pollution.
Natural fires around the world remind us how feeble we are in the face of natural disaster with climate change. “In 2012, record-breaking extreme events occurred in each of the 50 states. We saw the hottest March on record in the contiguous US and July was the hottest single month ever recorded in those lower 48 states…the frequency and intensity of some very costly types of extreme events are likely to worsen with climate change, as temperatures continue to rise and affect weather patterns…” was stated by the NRDC. With the geographical image (See figure 3) one can see the record braking heat and snow here within Texas. The urgency of taking action becomes clearer with every new scientific study made. I can personally support the dramatic weather changes throughout the seasons in Texas. I first moved into San Antonio a few years ago and immediately noticed the warm Texas weather. I begin to perceive the warm summer days commence to feel hotter than usual as for the winter season only last for a month and jump right into summer again....
