Over the last century, predominantly in the last twenty years, the earth has endured unparalleled heating. A person’s first response might be why? Hasn’t global warming always existed? Yes. It has always been a menacing epidemic but there have been obvious changes to the environment. With the drastic weather changes, it is suspected that all of the polar ice sheets should be melted by 2100. Many scientists have studied what could be the cause of this epidemic. The fact of the matter is that the scientists have established what exactly is causing it, which are high levels of carbon dioxide. Global warming is life threatening and for the majority, caused by the human race and our technological advances.
A collection of scientific evidence specifies that… “since 1950, the world's climate has been warming, primarily as a result of emissions from unfettered burning of fossil fuels and the razing of tropical forests” (Science). With this motion enhances to the ether's unseen blanket of carbon dioxide and other earth-warming “greenhouse" gases. In recent studies research has revealed that “…methane, which flows from landfills, livestock and oil and gas facilities, is a close second to carbon dioxide in impact on the atmosphere” (Science).
The standard view on global warming is allocated in half, but the majority believes that global warming does exist, but it is not contrived or heightened by human activity. The problem with the standard view is that yes, there are other factors that have been known to amend the earths temperature, but it is obvious that pollutions that are only caused by advances in technology and human development are the leading cause. It is important to change the general view so there can be developments to cure this potentially deadly epidemic. In order to fix this we need to start putting down laws in order to make the people save energy. We can also stop cutting down forestation in order to fit the increasing population.
In the future weather patterns will be reversed and even misplaced due to heating of the earth. Showed by a recent upsurge in the amount of extreme weather events, such as wildfires, heat waves, and strong tropical storms. Another example is coral reefs, which are highly sensitive to small changes in water temperature, suffered the worst bleaching—or die-off in response to stress—ever recorded in 1998, with some areas seeing bleach rates of 70 percent. Experts expect these sorts of events to increase in frequency and intensity in the next 50 years as sea temperatures rise (News).
The public has begun to believe that global warming, if it exists at all, is natural. The news, radio and magazines portray global warming as something you should not be afraid of. Why,...
