The Climate Change Crisis
Global warming is a rising issue around the world that needs to be addressed. There are multiple things that we can do to end global warming or to dampen the amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere. We can come together as a community to promote eco-friendly energy sources or change small things in our homes to save energy individually. In my community, a small and fairly wealthy town, it has been apparent that people rarely use public transportation or consider the amount of fuel their car uses. Most people in my the town do not think what kind of issues? issues are a big deal if they are not negatively impacting their everyday life. However, they are wrong. Climate

People use as much energy as they please without thinking twice about how it is affecting the climate around them.We could change these habits by using eco-friendly energy sources. There are hundreds of eco-friendly energy sources, a growing field of solar energy has become a major source of efficient energy (Listverse). Solar energy is the use of solar panels filled with solar cells to catch the sun 's rays and convert it into usable energy (Listverse). Solar cell technology continues to grow at a very quick pace, making them even more efficient and obtainable. (Listverse). This causes many areas called solar farms to start capturing a large amount of the energy to power thousands of homes and buildings. The rise of solar farms has been decreasing the effect of global warming. There are other types of eco-energy we can use as well such as wind, hydro and geothermal. Finding new ways to create eco-friendly energy helps the Earth at a regional level. But, how do we make a difference in our own homes? There are many ways we can do this; by changing a few things, this can be …show more content…
There is a great percentage of people and scientists on this planet that believe the rising temperatures and sea levels of the Earth are the result of natural fluctuations in the Earth 's overall temperature. In 2005, a study was conducted and it was found that the temperatures being recorded before 1990, had also occurred around 1000 to 1100 AD in the Northern Hemisphere ("Is Human Activity Primarily Responsible for Global Climate Change?"). Some scientists also say that sea levels have been steadily rising for thousands of years from the natural fluctuations in earth 's temperature, melting the glaciers, and the increase has nothing to do with humans ("Is Human Activity Primarily Responsible for Global Climate Change?"). A 2014 report by the Global Warming Policy Foundation, found that a slow global sea level rise has been ongoing for the last 10,000 years. Civilized humans have only been around for the last 6,000 years, proving that it started before humans could have contributed to the cause ("Is Human Activity Primarily Responsible for Global Climate Change?"). Some also disagree with the fact that humans have been releasing tons and tons of carbon dioxide into the air resulting in global warming. They claim the Earth 's atmosphere has always been saturated with tons of CO2 naturally ("Is Human Activity Primarily Responsible for Global
