    I. Introduction Over the years, it has been observed that the temperature of the earth has been getting warmer and warmer. Many would simply shrug this off as fluctuations in the weather, but this has been proven to not be the case. This increase in temperature has been determined to be caused by excess amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide traps sunlight in the atmosphere which makes the earth warmer. The excess amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is a…

    temperature due to the effect of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels or deforestation, which trap heat that wouldn’t stay on the Earth otherwise. This is a really big issue for the planet because it’s said that by the time a baby born today is 80 years old, the world will be 6 and a half degrees warmer than it is now. Main causes of climate change (human) People are constantly adding several types of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, and each gas effect on…

    beginning to panic about our effect on the environment and what we can do to reverse our damage. A report published by the United Nations titled Livestock’s Long Shadow, concludes that livestock emerges as one of the top contributors of some of the most significant and serious environmental issues, “locally and globally” ( Steinfeld 283). We should significantly decrease the production of meat because it wastes grain, wastes water, and produces methane. The amount of…

    volcanoes, volcanoes effects the landscape because they are formed by tectonic plates either diverging which means moving apart or converging which means moving together. Also volcanoes have changed the surface by the volcanic activity, resulting in damage to the environment around them. Volcanoes effect the atmosphere by producing carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide and methane into the atmosphere. This means that because of the number of toxic gases are escaping into the air they can effect the…

    In this TED Talks video, presenter Alice Bows-Larkin presents statistics and consensus regarding climate change and the impact of greenhouse gases. Bows-Larkin presents that our actions, choices and behaviors are the reason greenhouse gasses are raising and there is a profound negative impact. We can choose to take climate change seriously and cut greenhouse gas emissions or ignore and choose to adapt in the future to the severity of issues that will arise from the ignorance. Likewise, we do not…

    we live in today. It is causing animals to become extinct, glaciers to melt, abnormal seasonal changes, and more. One factor that plays into climate change is greenhouse gases. The main greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide. The role of greenhouse gasses is to keep the earth from becoming too cold for life. Greenhouse gases, which keep the earth from being inhabitable, have dangerously increased due to humans causing a global climate change. First of all, for anyone…

    Global Warming Is Wrong

    The issue my group and I are discussing about is global warming. Global warming is described as an increase in the earth’s average temperature that is caused by an increase in greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane. Scientist have labeled humans to be the main cause for global warming. We believe global warming is a problem because it causes the sea level to rise, extinction of animals, and pollution. Most scientists agree that humans are the main reason for the development of…

    one of the major greenhouse gases. That means that it has the ability to absorb heat and trap it. Since carbon monoxide is lighter than air, it sticks around in the atmosphere. If it is absorbing heat, it will eventually make the Earth warmer, causing a greenhouse effect. Although not a major contender compared to all the other greenhouse gases, its presence still makes a difference. “Carbon monoxide readily reacts with the hydroxyl radical (OH) forming a much stronger, greenhouse gas--carbon…

    Causes and Effects of Global Warming According to a study done by National Wildlife Federation, “The current pace of global average temperature rise puts approximately 25 to 35 percent of plant and animal species at increased risk of extinction.” This poses a huge threat to humans, as the majority of oxygen is derived from plants. Furthermore, without the influence of various predatory animal species, the populations of prey would skyrocket. Global warming has recently developed into one of…

    The Effects of Climate Change in Alaska Climate change, is it real or is it a hoax? If you live in Alaska maybe you’ve noticed environmental changes such as glaciers gradually melting, or maybe you’ve visited the village of Kaktovik and saw the polar bears that are new to the area (Goode, 2016). Perhaps you’ve recently moved to a new city because your last home was to inconvenient for you to make it to work on time. Well for the people of Shishmaref, they recently decided to move from their home…
