  • Global Warming And Climate Change

    Do you feel that? It’s hot right? Well, it’s hot because our planet is warming up, this is causing the environment to change too. This is called Global Warming. Global Warming and climate change refer to an uprise in average temperatures around the world. There is many reasons why global warming is and continues to happen. The main reason it’s happening is because of us, yes humans. Many of things we do in our daily life contribute to the growing problem of global warming In the past 100 years the average global temperature has risen approximately 0.6 °C and is projected to rise at a rapid rate. Our planet is warming all over from the North Pole to the South pole and every part in between, Ice is and will continue to keep melting worldwide, especially at the Earth’s poles. This includes mountain glaciers, ice sheets covering West Antarctica, Greenland, and Arctic sea ice. The effects of rising temperatures aren’t waiting for us to die. They’re happening today, the signs are everywhere and some of them are very surprising. Sea levels rising has become rapidly faster over the last century. They are expected to rise between 7 and 23 inches (18 and 59 centimeters) by the end of the century. It is predicted that the continued melting at the poles could add between 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 centimeters) to the sea level. On average Precipitation (rain and snowfall) has increased everywhere on earth. Global warming will continue to happen until we pull together and do something…

  • Climate Change In Global Warming

    Global warming Global warming is a well-recognised concept since the mid 1900s. The current issue in question revolves around the extent climate change will affect mankind, the timescale and the severity of such changes. Various visible physical changes are evident over the last decade. Not only does the disasters strike more frequently and with more force, all three major global surface temperature reconstructions illustrate that the Earth has warmed vastly since 1880. The Department of Energy…

  • Climate Change And Global Warming

    The world’s climate is changing, and the changes will have an enormous impact on our planet’s people, ecosystems, cities, and energy use. Now there is a difference between climate and weather. Climate describes the average or typical conditions of temperature, while weather describes the hourly or daily conditions that people experience each day. This is why it’s often said that “Climate is what you expect; weather is what you get.” The United States Global Change Research Program (which…

  • Global Warming And Climate Change: What Is Climate Change?

    What is Climate Change? “The planet 's climate has constantly been changing over geological time.” The average global temperature currently remains around 15 Degrees Celsius. However, this figure has constantly been a subject to change in the past. Climate change threatens the world’s economy, climate and population “it is clear that coal, oil and gas will play a significant part in meeting the world’s energy needs for the foreseeable future, and we need to find ways to reduce their emissions”…

  • Climate Change And Global Warming Essay

    Modern Climate Change and Global Warming Affect on Society The Earth is 4.6 Billion years old, and over this course of time, there have been great changes in Earth’s geology that we as humans have never been able to witness due to our short life span on the geologic time scale. It is not until the past couple of decades where we are seeing geologic changes in our lifetime due to human made climate change. Fossil fuels such as gas and coal are used as sources of energy, but they have increased…

  • Global Warming And Climate Change Essay

    there are a few people who do not know the difference between global warming and climate change, global warming refers to the Earths rising surface temperature, which include the greenhouse effect (Bradford). The greenhouse effect is caused by an increased level of carbon dioxide and other pollutants cause by peoples’ actions everyday such as driving automobiles. On the other hand, climate change includes the effects of warming such as melting glaciers in the Antarctic, heavy rains in the east…

  • Climate Change: The Causes Of Global Warming

    The climate is warming and will continue to rise under human influence. Signs of climate change are already being seen in today’s environment and the significance of these changes are accepted by most people, however there are still some people who choose to deny these facts. Global warming has the potential to dramatically disrupt some of life’s essential requirements for health, water air and food. In order to plan for climate change policies, and understanding of how Australians perceive…

  • Global Warming: The Importance Of Climate Change

    If global warming were a bush, the people and politicians of the world have been beating around it for more than a century. While aware that the earth is slowly heating up, already by .8°C since 1880 when scientists began keeping reliable record, little has been done to control it. But is this scale of temperature control even within human capabilities? Some claim that climate change is merely Earth 's natural agenda and that humans couldn 't control it if we wanted, while others believe it is a…

  • The Impact Of Global Warming And Climate Change

    I. BACKGROUND Global warming and climate change are often synonymously linked with carbon dioxide gas. Carbon dioxide is emitted into the atmosphere in several ways, some of which are: burning fossil fuels, waste, and burning trees and other wood substances. According to the EPA, carbon dioxide accounts for 82 percent of harmful greenhouse gases being released into our atmosphere (“Overview of Greenhouse Gases” 2014). Greenhouses gases work by trapping heat in the atmosphere, and essentially…

  • The Byproducts Of Global Warming And Climate Change

    Byproducts of Rising Global Temperature The terms global warming and climate change are often thought of as interchangeable, while they are to some extent, particularly within the context of politics, in science the terms are taken more literally. As discussed earlier, the scientific community is in agreement with regards to the fact that global temperatures are increasing. So calling the phenomenon global warming is not technically incorrect, however, global warming does not encompass the…
