Cause and effects of Climate Change.

General purpose: to inform.

Specific purpose: After listening my speech my audience will know what is climate change, what causes it and its effects?

Thesis Statement: Climate change is a very important issue that affects all of us.

Organization pattern: Cause and effect.

Introduction:

I. (Attention-getter): How do you explain that 30 years ago we had a different weather than today? When you look at yourself in a dirty mirror; can you see your image very well? The same occurs when the sunrays reflect on the sea and that reflection can’t be release into space because gasses in the atmosphere block their exit to out of space causing the planet to get warmer.

II. Climate change is how weather has changed

Main point: What is Climate Change?

According to the Australian Academy of Science, Climate change is define as a change in the statistical properties of the climate system that persists for several decades or longer—usually at least 30 years.

The weather that we have or may have is a reflection of our atmosphere and the atmosphere is influenced by the oceans, land surfaces and ice sheets. Together they form the climate system. How we treat this group is going to be the outcome in our weather.

Transition: Now that you know what Climate Change is, I will tell you what causes it.

II. What causes Global Warming? Global warming is a complex phenomenon that can occur by different reasons.

A. Global Warming caused due to nature.

a) Solar Irradiance: changes in energy from the sun.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Earth 's temperature depends on the balance between energy entering and leaving the planet’s system. That means that when the energy from the sun is absorbed by The Earth, the planet warms while when the sun’s energy is reflected back the Earth cools.

b) Volcanoes: emission of gasses after

III. What are the effects of Global Warming?

According to a report of the U.S. Global Change Research Program

a) Temperatures will continue to raise, all the habitants on Earth are experimenting this changes around the world.

b) Changes in precipitations patterns

c) Heat waves and droughts

d) Hurricanes will be more intense although we are seeing this now; scientific predict it will be devastating in the future; causing losses on crops and an increase of diseases.

e) Sea level will rise from 1-4 feet by 2100 causing many people to migrate, although this is happening in many places in India.

f) Artic likely to become ice free because the heat trapped is already melting ice in Greenland, and scientists said it will continue if nobody takes action now.

Conclusion:

In conclusion I would like to share this phrase from the actor and environmentalist Ian Somerhalder: “The environment is in us, not outside of us. The trees are our lungs, the river our bloodstream. We are all interconnected, and what you do to the environment, ultimately you do to yourself.” – Ian

    Climate Change and Global Warming Humanity Greatest Threat Climate change and global warming are real. The world’s climate is changing, and the changes will have an enormous impact on the planet’s people, ecosystems, cities, and energy use. Average global air temperatures are already 1.5 degrees higher than they were at the start of the 20th century, and have risen about 1 degree over just the last 30 years. Scientists have discover some of the causes for these drastic changes. Greenhouse gases, according to scientists are the main culprit for climate changes.…

    Climate change is a problem that the entire world is dealing with. As our planet warms our weather pattern continues to change towards a more severe path. Species are dying off as a result of the world warming up. Observing the pattern of the warming of the globe over the past 30 years has people asking the scientific question, is global climate change man-made? We are going to go over the natural causes of climate change, what is causing the process to speed up, and what the people of the planet can do to slow the process.…

    The primary cause of climate change is the increased emission of greenhouse gasses by human processes. The most significant greenhouse gasses include carbon dioxide, methane, water vapor and nitrous oxide. In order to understand the effect greenhouse gasses have on the earth, one must comprehend how energy enters and exits the atmosphere. The sun constantly emits short wave radiation. This radiation can be dangerous to human health in large quantities, causing sunburn and skin cancers.…

When climate change occurs; temperatures can increase a dramatically. When the temperature rises, many different variations can happen on the Earth. For instance, it can result in more floods, storms, droughts, or intense rain, landslides as well as more severe and persistent heat waves. Oceans and glaciers have likewise encountered a few changes: oceans are warming and winding up more acidic, glaciers are melting, and ocean levels are rising.…

    Global Warming Global warming has become a major issue for us today. Global warming is an increase in temperature caused by many different natural and manmade reasons. Because of global warming, not only are humans affected, but also animals who struggle to survive and the plants who allow us to survive. Global warming is becoming a bigger risk for all of us each day. Even though there are many causes and effects, there are many ways to prevent global warming as well.…

    This type of weather phenomenon plays a major role in the varying condition of the Earth, known as global warming. Like Tisdale, many others share the same idea that the Earth’s changes are a natural evolution of weather cycles. This opinion of natural occurrence also has climate models that back up the idea that global warming is caused by the greenhouse effect. These climate models are programmed to test what levels of carbon dioxide are in the atmosphere. In a blog by Tisdale, “The Manmade Global Warming Challenge,” one data supporting the Earth’s natural ability to allow water temperatures and carbon dioxide levels to rise and fall which is proven in this graph.…

    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).…

    Natural causes of climate change include variations in the sun’s energy reaching earth and changes in the reflectivity of the Earth’s atmosphere and surface. Also, changes in the greenhouse gas effect is a cause of climate change because it affects the amount of heat retained by Earth’s atmosphere. Volcanic eruptions discharge carbon dioxide and they emit volcanic ash or dust and sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere contributing to the causes of climate change. Also, El Niño is an oscillation of the ocean and atmosphere system in the tropical area of the Pacific Ocean that affects global climate change also. Another natural cause is orbital changes in the earth, changes in the earth’s orbit and tilt cause the climate fluctuations that…

    At this rate the next generation will have little to no glaciers to see. Due to this ice melting it causes the ocean levels to rise. Over time this can have an impact on humans being displaced from the flooding of coastal areas. “A recent study found that if average temperatures rise by three degrees Celsius, Greenland’s enormous ice sheet will begin to melt and sea levels all over the world may rise by a half foot to three feet or more” (Simon 18). The ocean itself is also warming.…

    This change in climate is the reason for all the droughts that have been occurring. Extreme weather is a result of climate change. Climate change will bring many animals to extinction and coral reefs will be destroyed. Polar ice caps will continue to melt, and cause the rise of sea levels. Heat waves and tsunamis will also become a problem, and both are a threat to human lives.…
