I believe that the issue of global warming is occurring but yet is not something that any of us should be intensely worrying about because it is a natural cycle of the earth. 650 million years ago the planet was a snowball and is referred to as an ice age. The albedo of earth was higher and no energy from the sun was being absorbed. This goes along with the fact that at this time there was nothing sitting in the atmosphere of earth except the particles necessary to keep earth the way it was. Earth was also able to melt the ice when the earth started to warm from an increase in temperature. The snow melted and years later the earth wasn’t frozen. Now, the first thing I wanted to bring up is the greenhouse effect. This is the process by which radiation from a planet 's atmosphere warms the planet 's surface to a temperature above what it would be in the absence of its atmosphere. Is global warming happening? Well, literally it is, but I think the earth goes through it because of the different components of the atmosphere.

Because of these layers greenhouse gases are trapped on earth, and when enough…
