  • Global Warming And Its Effects On The Environment

    many still completely deny their contribution to the current state of the environment due to the media bias portrayed. If human beings wish to continue progressing on this planet as an entire population, it is essential for people to show respect for the Earth and to protect all natural resources necessary to sustain life; which means protecting the ocean, air, wildlife and all of the elements which shape the world we live in. Global warming has affected millions and caused both physical and biological changes to occur. The essence of this problem on a broad scale, is the complete lack of awareness shown in people 's everyday actions which affect wildlife, weather patterns, and the health and wellbeing of all living things. The earth’s climate undergoes many changes in temperature throughout the seasons, usually as a result of the planet receiving more or less sunlight due to subtle shifts in earth 's orbit. In the past century however, it has been primarily due to the rapid increase in Earth’s average surface temperature and greenhouse gases released from people burning fossil fuels. The recent article in living science by Marc Lallanilla explains “A greenhouse gas is any gaseous compound in the atmosphere that is capable of absorbing infrared radiation, thereby trapping and holding heat in the atmosphere” giving the reader a good idea of what exactly a greenhouse gas is, and how it affects the environment. The increase of heat in the atmosphere leads to many climate…

  • The Harmful Effects Of Global Warming And The Environment

    It is on the local news or found in the newspaper. It is in the air that people breathe every single day. However, many humans are still not aware of the harmful effects of global warming. Carbon is emitted into the air daily because of the burning of fossil fuels. Eventually, we will run out of fossil fuels. Then what happens? There are plenty of clean alternatives that put little to no greenhouse gas into the atmosphere. One small switch at a time could save a population of polar bears or even…

  • The Causes And Effects Of Global Warming And The Environment

    will supply the most flooding to global sea rise out of all the world’s glaciers. Even though humans may not be affected as directly, there are many species of animals that are in danger of extinction because of global warming. A well-known example is the polar bears, who are losing their hunting grounds as the arctic ice melts at alarming rates. Moreover, many other aquatic animals will be affected in a negative way because of the destruction levels that will rise because of all the floods, and…

  • The Positive Effects Of Global Warming And The Environment

    As much as global warming is damaging the planet and the lives of many living species, many scientists do not believe that the warming is actually happening. Scientists look at analysis that is made from global warming believers and produce their own conclusion. Those opposing scientists “hold to a strict definition of global warming as being defined as a rise in atmospheric temperature, they do not consider the atmospheric precursors as valid evidence.” (Conserve Energy Future), meaning they do…

  • Global Warming Effect On The Earth's Environment

    Global warming has been taking effect on the Earth’s environment since the 1950’s creating dramatic changes and dangerous new records. In the last three decades the Earth’s average surface temperature has each been successively warmer than any previous decade since 1850 as a result of increase greenhouse emissions (IPCC 2014). This temperature rise is impacting some of the most vulnerable ecosystems on the planet such as the polar regions, coral reefs and tropical rainforests. Climate change can…

  • The Controversial Effects Of Global Warming And The Global Environment

    Today, global warming has been the most controversial issues of human being for the past 50 years. Global warming is an increase in the average temperature of the atmosphere near the Earth 's surface, and it is already happening and represents one of the greatest environmental threats that the planet is having to suffer. Every year, more than billion tons of carbon dioxide are released into the atmosphere by human activities. This leads to the increase of greenhouse gasses as well as changes in…

  • Melting Icebergs Essay

    Although people have their own opinions about global warming, it is a fact that it is harming the earth’s atmosphere; therefore, steps should be taken to eliminate or greatly reduce the factors that are contributing to global warming. This ad by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is trying to get people to change the way they live their lives in order to stop or prevent global warming. UNEP does a really good job of this with the ad; the viewer sees the ocean in the background with…

  • The Impacts And Consequences Of Global Warming On The Environment

    The climate on the Earth is changing. Ice age is interleaved with the global warming. In the present age, the temperature of the Earth's climate system continue rapidly increase and it leads to global warming. Global warming is the process of gradual growth of average annual temperature of the atmosphere of the Earth and World ocean. The average temperature on the Earth was increased by 0.6C. There are various reasons of global warming, such as human activities, natural events, increasing of…
