Try to imagine a world without New York, London, and the Indonesian Islands. This could soon become reality if there is not more done to prevent global warming, a gradual increasing of the temperature on earth.. Many people have researched global warming and the causes for it. Some say it is just because the climate is changing by itself. Others believe it is due to the carbon dioxide emissions caused by planes, cars, homes, workplaces, pollution, and forest burnings. Pollution causes the thin atmosphere to thicken, and that causes the heat and carbon dioxide to be trapped and not go back into space. This causes the temperatures to rise globally. If the ice were to melt it would force more than a million people to relocate, changing their ways …show more content…

Furthermore, researchers say that global temperature will rise by 0.08 degrees Celsius by 2050 (Smith).
