Global Warming Can Lead To Global Climate Change

Superior Essays
Throughout the years it has been easier to notice how climate has changed. Some summers are not very warm and some winter are not very cold. Even crazier, sometimes spring feels like winter and summer like autumn, and so on. Since the 1800’s humans have had the knowledge that climate changes are possible, and can happen from atmosphere variations as Fourier calculated in 1824, which can lead to the Earth becoming far colder. Additionally, the industrial revolution lead to “coal, railroads, and land clearing”, which lead to increase greenhouse gas emission. According to the Global Climate Change web page, “greenhouse gases trap heat in the atmosphere, which makes the Earth warmer.” The gases that constitute the greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide, …show more content…
However, if we add more greenhouse gases, as we are doing today, that can lead to global warming. Carbon dioxide is everywhere, in humans, animals, plants, ocean, atmosphere and land. This gas does not “stay in one place or in one form”; it moves throughout the Earth. This natural process makes possible the reduction of this greenhouse gas, but unfortunately we sometimes are not aware that we are the ones who are leading this process to over trap heat. By driving a car, using electricity, not having enough trees or making a product that requires burning gas, or oil we use energy that produce more carbon dioxide, we can lead to the Earth trapping more heat, making it impossible for nature to reduce the amount of this …show more content…
However, must of us are not willing to give up technology, plant more trees, use less electricity, walk long distance or use public transportation. Since we are not willing to give up some activities that lead to global warming, another option is to try to remove the atmosphere (because the atmosphere traps heat through the greenhouse effects), as maybe Joseph Fourier thought in 1824, but wait, that will be a disaster to all living creature on Earth because we would have a bigger problems, such us surface water boiling in the day because of the lack of air pressure. As a result, we would not have the atmosphere to control the heat entering our planet. Also, we would not have protection from the ultra violet radiation, and would have extremely cold nights and warm days, which will make everything on Earth die. We would not be able to survive in that kind of climate, unless we mutate and develop some kind of skin which allow us to withstand those extreme

    One of the major problems facing our world today is global warming. “Global Warming is the increase of Earth 's average surface temperature due to effect of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels or from deforestation, which trap heat that would otherwise escape from Earth” (“ What is Global…”, n.d.). There is a major difference between global warming and greenhouse gases. The greenhouse effect is a natural process in earth’s atmosphere that maintains the average surface temperature. It is caused by certain gases such as water vapor, ozone (O3), carbon dioxide (CO2), and methane (CH4), and traces of chloro-fluoro-carbons (CFC 's).…

    If the carbon dioxide is kept too much in the atmosphere, it will be the increase of greenhouse gases, and the earth will become warmer. Jarred Skype (n.d), an environmental scientist, pointed out in his article, “The primary cause of environmental degradation is human disturbance. The degree of the environmental impact varies with the cause, the habitat, and the plants and animals that inhabit it”. Obviously, environmental degradation happens when people exploit and overuse the components of…

    Theses scientist believes that global warming is due to natural causes more than to human causes. Some people believe the climate data that has been collected is not enough to show that there is a rise in global temperatures. Other scientists believe that there are those so eager to find signs of global warming, they are not taking in data with an objective mind. And still others say that global warming is just a natural climate shift and that plants and animals can 't adapt to such a shift. And it 's not just the science that 's being debated.…

    In the other 70 percent, most are consumed by the land and ocean, and the rest is absorbed by the atmosphere. The absorbed solar energy heats our planet. This retention and radiation of heat by the atmosphere is helpful for life on Earth. Today, the climate contains more greenhouse gas molecules, so more of the infrared energy emitted by the surface ends up being consumed by the environment. By increasing the concentration of greenhouse gases, we are making Earth's atmosphere a more efficient greenhouse.…

    (Grounds) The daily ritual of turning on electricity for many people; releases many greenhouse gases based on the form of electricity used. While small quantities of carbon dioxide do exist naturally in the atmosphere, the generation of electricity has greatly increased the presence of greenhouse gases in the planet’s atmosphere. The overwhelming majority of scientist believe that this contributes to an unnatural degree of global warming that has the potential to affect the global climate, destroy animal populations and change local ecosystems. (Backing)(Thompson 2) (Warrant) Electricity increases the amount of greenhouse gases leading to the increase in global climate; switching electricity systems to solar panels should decrease the amount of greenhouse gases which then would allow for the temperature increase to slow…

    In the same fashion activities like burning of coal, exhaust fumes from cars, and tree burning produce extra amounts of gas contributing to greenhouse effect or global warming. Global warming as a result is caused from greenhouse effect. Furthermore, the burning of fossil fuels is really important to this issue. Fossil fuels are any combustible material, as oil, coal, or natural gas, derived from the remains of former life. Fossil fuels contain carbon and when burnt the carbon combines with oxygen in the atmosphere forming carbon dioxide.…

    There is no single solution to global warming, which is primarily a problem of too much heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Individually, we can reduce emissions by reducing our emission inputs from our behaviors. There are many technologies and approaches that can bring down the emissions by at least 80% by mid-century, including boosting energy efficiency, greening transportation, reviving renewables, phasing out fossil fuel electricity, and managing forests and…

    Many people say that global warming is not a real event when so much scientific evidence proves otherwise. There are many simple but effective ways to help with this global epidemic. One is to reduce fossil fuel use. Combustion of fossil fuels emits greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Another is to Plant Trees.…

    (Shuster, 583) One of the most common greenhouse gases is carbon dioxide. When too much heat is absorbed, the atmosphere of the earth begins to warm. This may lead to global warming. Global warming is defined as "an overall increase in the earth 's average temperature." (Shuster, 584) Global warming can lead to problems that affect the land on which we live.…

    The climate and seasons go through natural changes also. “In general, climate changes prior to the Industrial Revolution in the 1700s can be explained by natural causes, such as changes in solar energy, volcanic eruptions, and natural changes in greenhouse gas concentrations” (EPA). There are many economic, psychological, and even metaphysical reasons why some do not “believe” in climate change. Some think that the costs are too high to fix, that climate change consequences are horrible to think about, and that nothing bad is going to happen to our earth. People are in denial about what is actually occurring.…
