According to EPA, this increases the Earth’s temperature, which causes health issues, droughts, flooding, and storms. These effects of climate change due to greenhouse gases can be unpredictable and can happen anytime. Greenhouse gases are harder to remove from the atmosphere and could take, according to EPA, “decades or even centuries” to turn back the climate change to normal. If people try avoid things, for instance, deforestation and burning fossil fuels, that forms these gases than the Earth’s temperature would almost be …show more content…
Increasing levels of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere is making the water warmer which kills coral reefs.
Some people argue that the global warming is just a cycle that the Earth goes through. In the article, “Global Climate Change” by Paul and Liz Downing, they claim that the Earth goes through a phase in which it becomes warmer for some time and then back to cool.
This is because approximately every 100,000 years Earth 's climate warms up temporarily. These warmer intervals, called interglacial periods, appear to last approximately 15,000 to 20,000 years before we go back to a cold, ice age climate. We are currently standing at year 18,000 in the current inter-glacial period, and so we have to believe that our current respite from the ice is much nearer its end than its beginning.

Some believe that the global warming is not manmade but instead it is normal for the Earth to get warmer for many thousand years and then go back to cooler
