850 words - 3 pagesGlobalWarming and The Environment
Globalwarming is a term used to describe a gradual increase in the average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and its oceans (All About GlobalWarming, 2007, para.1). There is no doubt this is an important matter that will impact planet earth for many years to come. Globalwarming is a critical issue that impacts the entire world and the potential consequences caused by it will have a negative impact if human contribution is not reduced. Although many people disagree with the causes and outcomes, there is certainly enough information available to support the argument.
At this time, globalwarming is said to be a crisis with carbon and emissionsVIEW DOCUMENT
1190 words - 5 pagesGlobalwarming is a serious and complex issue that is at the forefront of much modern scientific research. Everyone, from the scientific community to, unfortunately, politicians, seems to have their own opinion on the issue. Climate change is a serious issue that needs to be examined for root causes so that it can be realistically addressed by humanity as a whole.
Globalwarming is an expression that refers to the idea that the physical earth, along with certain elements of the atmosphere, is increasing in overall temperature. This disturbing issue is indicative of an overall trend that has accompanied the increase of greenhouse gasses in recent years. Globalwarming has started toVIEW DOCUMENT
785 words - 3 pagesWhat is globalwarming? Globalwarming is when energy is absorb from the earth's surface by carbon dioxide (CO2) and many other gases in the atmosphere causing the warming effect in the earth atmosphere. (C.55.54) This warming effect is what's causing the earth's temperature to rise and create many problems that will occur in the coming years. A warmer earth speeds up the global water cycle, the exchange of water among the oceans, atmosphere, and land. Higher temperature causes more evaporation and soil tends to dry out faster. Increased amounts of water in the atmosphere will mean more rain overall. Such events can cause flooding, soil erosion, and even loss of life. (C55.54) WithVIEW DOCUMENT

It is a complicated and integrated phenomenon that combines the Earth and it's atmosphere. Globalwarming can be defined as the increase in average temperature on the planet earth. This increase in temperature is caused from the build up of harmful gases such as C02, as well as methane and others. These gases come naturally, but the consistent flow into the planet's atmosphere is caused by humans. The major build of upVIEW DOCUMENT

There are many examples that it may be so like a hot summer in Edmonton, no negative temperature days in Glasgow, Montana however, other phenomenon like record snowfalls contradicts the existence of globalwarming.

In the February 1st edition of the New York Times, journalist Andrew C.

There are 4 steps in the Greenhouse effect process. The first is, sunlight radiates from the sun, through space, to the Earth’s atmosphere. The second is, sunlight enters the atmosphere and hits the Earth. Some of that sunlight turns into heat energy in the form of infrared light. Surrounding air and land, which in turn makes the heat warm, absorbs the heat. Third, the greenhouse gases trap infrared rays that is remitted into the atmosphere. Finally, the gas then absorbs the light and is remitted back to the Earth’s surface and warms it even moreVIEW DOCUMENT

Brian Sussman and Mark Hendrickson both deny globalwarming is due to the fact that human are polluting the earth with emissions and other waste products. They both agree that the climate around the globe is changing, but they both say that it is a natural occurrence. Mark Hendrickson and Brian Sussman both made great arguments against manmade globalwarming, but I am still a little undecided as to which side of the fence I am standing on.

One of the hottest topics being discussed now a days is the effects of globalwarming on the environment and the efforts being made in order to combat the potential effects. Simply put, globalwarming refers to the environmental effects caused by the constant emission of carbon dioxide from carbon based fuels. These effects are supposedly widespread; the temperature of the earth will rise, the land becomes less conducive to, vegetation, and various ecosystems become extinct. There is no common consensus on how to control the problem and through out the paper it discusses the issues of globalwarming.

While the debate continues about how to protect the Earth for the future of man’s existence, there is no doubt about the profound impact that pollution and the rise of global temperatures have had. There are some natural causes of these changes, and several man-made reasons for the modification in Earth’s environment. These sources of globalwarming and pollution are adding to an already complicated ecosystem. They affect the Earth’s biomes and interrupt the balance between the organisms that inhabit many climates. Finding the source of the problem can be quite difficult, but scientists and the study of climatology work hard to findVIEW DOCUMENT

One of the main causes of globalwarming is greenhouse gases. Greenhouse gases are gases in the atmosphere that absorb solar radiation to keep the planet warm. These gases have increased, so more solar radiation is trapped inside raising global temperatures.

Climate change is neither new nor unusual. Throughout the history of the earth, the average surface temperature, climate and greenhouse gas concentrations have changed, sometimes gradually other times quite sharply. During the past 10,000 years the earth has been in an interglacial period with a fairly stable climate, surface temperature, and greenhouse gas concentration1. The problem that has arisen in recent times is when scientists analyze the past 150 years, especially the last 50. Scientists have found an increased greenhouse gas concentration, making the 20th century the hottest in the last 10,000 years.

This hurts many people, animals, and plants. Many cannot take the change, so they die.What is the greenhouse effect?The greenhouse effect is when the temperature rises because the sun's heat and light is trapped in the earth's atmosphere.

There is little doubt that the air’s carbon dioxide concentrations have been increasing since the Industrial Revolution and there are few who do not attribute this increase to the rise in humanity’s use of fossil fuels. There is also little dispute that the earth has warmed slightly over the same period. During our interview Adam told me that he believes strongly in the dangers of globalwarming and feels great animosity towards critics of this theory.

Increased evaporation of water, which would increase the amount of water vapor (a green house gas) in the atmosphere, making the process of globalwarming even worse.2.

Climate change is also a very good example of globalwarming. Climate change is when the seasons sometimes overlap into another season, so when it is spring, it is still Summer time weather. The ozone layers get deteriorated and more of the sun's heat rays come through the little holes that have been made, causing more heat than usual to penetrate through. AnotherVIEW DOCUMENT

There are a collection of gases called "greenhouse gases," which are water vapor, carbine dioxide, ozone, methane, nitrous oxide, and chlorofluorocarbons (CFC).
