1209 words - 5 pagesKayla SylvesterCLIMATECHANGE ESSAY - draftThe term 'climatechange' is usually referred to the processes of global warming. Over the years there has been a global warming controversy: as to whether global warming is occurring, how much it has occurred in modern times, whether humans are playing the main role in causing global warming, whether any action should be taken towards global warming and if so what should be done? Scientists have been researching these questions for years and it's come to the point where it is a little hard to ignore the facts. Global warming isVIEW DOCUMENT

743 words - 3 pagesClimatechange, no matter who you ask, is either real or a factious phenomenon that has been altering our planet at an alarming rate. With temperatures rising, weather events becoming more dangerous, and ecosystems suffering climatechange can be viewed as a problem that is real. One of the places that is under the climatechange gun, is a delicate ecosystem in Northern Minnesota. In Northern Minnesota two of the state’s biggest ecosystems come together and create a very delicate transitional zone called the prairie-forest ecotone. In this zone the vast conifer and deciduous forests transition into tallgrass prairie, an area where climatechange can have a big impact on plant and wildlifeVIEW DOCUMENT

However, the root cause of this predicament is rather controversial and highly debatable. According to recent statistics from environmental authorities, there is not a conclusive reason to what drives climatechange.
On one hand, some scientists believe that humans are the primary cause of global warming. Humans are putting pollution into the air through coal mining, industrial processes, melting permafrost, and coal plants. Pollution is trapping heat, and it’s raising the temperatures in the air, oceans, and even the surface of EarthVIEW DOCUMENT

Climatechange has been proven by scientist that its presence is real and severely effecting our planet with both short term and long term affects. The most obvious sign of climatechange is seen in the melting of the glaciers, the changing water and atmospheric temperatures. It is also proven that it is us humans that are the most greatly responsible for global warming, in the past 150 years climatechange has been increasing substantially. We are slowlyVIEW DOCUMENT

Each day the earth changes, mostly because of climate and weather. Each region of this earth is affected day to day, differently, but collectively. This also does not only affect the earth, but the people, plants, and animals that inhabit its land and oceans as well.The biggest impact climate changes may have on this earth is our water systems. The temperature is responsible for precipitation and moisture held in the atmosphere, which in turn controls the other elements of the earth. AVIEW DOCUMENT

ClimateChangeEveryday the weather around each and every one of us is changing. Whether it is temperature change or just the force of the wind, everyday it is something different. Unfortunately it is not just the weather that changes; the climate is changing as well. Unlike the change in the weather though, a change in the climate can be permanent. There are many attributes to climatechange, and many wonder if our own fast food nations have anything to do with this change in our climate; indeed they do. How is it that our very own livestock can contribute to this change in our climate? ClimatechangeVIEW DOCUMENT

A whopping 542% increase within 50 years opposed to 1900-1950 which was a 240% increase (What is Climage Change). Global climatechange is not controversial. It has been affecting the world around us since the 1950’s. Climatechange is causing devastating problems for the world’s essential resources because it is increasing extreme weather patterns which is decreasing energy production and transportation and is causing agriculture to suffer.

One of the most important areas in the Canadian arctic is the Cryosphere (Appendix A), which is the area consisting of season snow cover, permafrost glaciers, and sea ice (Fergal & Prowse, 2007). This area is significant because it has provided a stabilized surface for building pipelines, as well as provides access to northern communities (Fergal & Prowse, 2007).

The ecological consequences of global climatechange are expected to be drastic although not much is known as to how individual species will react to these changes. Irrespective of the causes of climatechange, whether anthropogenic or natural, it is imperative that we address these concerns, as they will have widespread impacts on the human species, both directly and indirectly through forcings on other species. The climate is not expected to shift evenly and the ways in which certain species adapt or migrate due to these changes could be erratic and unpredictable. The rate at which the earth’s climate is currently changing is unprecedented and has notVIEW DOCUMENT

NOAA goes on to define Abrupt ClimateChange as "a change in the climate (for example, in temperature or precipitation) that takes place over a few decades or less, persists for at least a few decades, and causes substantial disruptions in human and natural systems" (NOAA 1).

Alexander the Great was the next to conquer the Indus valley region. From the documentation left behind from his empire, there apparently was a fraction of the water in the Indus valley between the years of his occupation of the area (330-323 B.C.) as there had been both for the Aryan as well as the previous civilizations. However, it seems as if the trend of declining water sources in the Indus valley continued beyond the rule of Alexander the Great. The documents from Alexander’s empire speak of rivers and other water sources that no long exist in the region.

The decreasing trend of the models in the second graph, which only includes volcanic aerosols and solar radiation, clearly supports the argument.

Threats to diversity like habitat degradation may appear on one site and cause threats on local scales, on the contrary to climatechange, which is global and affects the earth as a whole.

While most researchers believe that the increase of atmospheric CO2 is effecting global warming, others are endorsing the concerns of another Ice Age, which is likely to occur due to orbital variations of the Earth.

Global warming and the greenhouse effect are issues discussed by scientists all the time. A natural process that keeps earths temperature at a livable rate is called the greenhouse effect. The energy from the sun warms up the earth when the rays from the sun are absorbed by greenhouse gasses. The gasses then become trapped in the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide, water vapor, methane and nitrous oxide are the most common greenhouse gasses. Greenhouse gases cause the radiant heat of the sun to be trapped in the Earths lower atmosphere which causes global warming. If there weren’t any greenhouse gasses, theVIEW DOCUMENT

According to the PDF file “Impact and Remediation”, some predicted consequences include: sea levels rising due to ice and glaciers melting (which could result in a loss of coastal communities and islands), ecosystems being severely damaged or destroyed (causing whole species to be threatened or wiped out), human food supplies being decreased, and human healthVIEW DOCUMENT
