The Positive And Possible Effects Of Global Warming

Temperatures in 2015 were higher than have ever been recorded. Carbon Dioxide emissions, fossil fuels burning, and deforestation have caused 2015 to be the hottest year ever recorded. The rise in heat has caused water in third world countries to become scarce and wars to occur. Global warming is a colossal issue that affects the environment, the world, and mankind, and if it is not stopped soon, the results on the Earth could be disastrous. Global Warming has put an enormous “carbon footprint” on Earth, although some scientists, such as Nordhaus, says to not worry too much about it because our temperatures have been stable for nearly 10 years. Carbon Dioxide has been released more as we burn fossil fuels and gasses along with clearing land. …show more content…
Some skeptics such as Todd Hill tend to say that if global warming continued, then it would be better for the land. Better land would be land that is more useable, because it would become more of a suitable climate for growing crops. These skeptics also tend to say that there would be longer growing seasons, and maybe not only 1, but maybe 2 growing seasons out of the year. Plants feed off of Carbon Dioxide and this also makes them their green color, and the non-believers think that this is going to save animal life. If the ice melts and the Northwest Passage is available then the whole world has access to their oil, but if we have access to the oil and burn it like we do gas, then it will make the Carbon Dioxide problem in our atmosphere worse. All homeowners would need to heat less, and as they think this is going to require less energy, it will still require the same amount or more to cool the …show more content…
There are complications with biofuels that some are trying to implement to save us from global warming, though it fails. Biofuels were designed to absorb a lot of the Carbon Dioxide and it was proven that it would take around 500 years to make any difference. Biofuels take up farmlands that are for food, which have to be watered too often. Water scarcity is an issue around the world that is especially hard for third world countries. In some countries, waterways are becoming scarcer than they are in the United States; in fact they are so scarce that cities and countries are going to war over a waterway for drinking water. Without drinking water a city could sure die soon, just like with the quicker spread of diseases. Diseases, such as Malaria and Dengue Fever are going to spread faster with the heat level rising, which means more of the population dead. Even things as minor as allergies will be increased when more pollen is produced, because Carbon Dioxide levels have made plants increase the levels of pollen
