  • How Does Global Climate Change?

    other heat trapping greenhouse gases contribute to climate change. The largest known contribution comes from the burning of fossil fuels- coal, oil, and natural gases for energy, and agriculture. Power stations emit 21.3% harmful gases into the atmosphere. A typical coal plant emits 3.5 million tons of CO2 per year. Coal plants in the US are also the leading source of sulfur dioxide. Burning coal causes smog, acid rain, and toxic rain. This acid rain damages crops, forests, and soils, and…

  • Angular Momentum

    a cyclone (Chu 2016). Beta-drifting is when the storm is spinning one way on bottom and the opposite way up towards the atmosphere. Now since Saturn is moving on it’s axis with its own velocity, it then drags with it the storm’s spinning at their own speed as well; which would bring the storms straight to the poles (Kluger 2016). O 'Neil even quoted saying, “ The whole atmosphere is being dragged by its planet as it rotates… so all that air has some ambient angular momentum.” (Chu 2016). Over a…

  • Global Warming: Difference Between Climate And Volcanoes

    time scale--from day to day, while climate is more long term, and is the long term trend over hundreds to thousands of years. We are releasing tons of gases and dust particles into the earth 's atmosphere every day, and so the salient question becomes: What type of effect do these gases have on our atmosphere? Most climate scientists would agree that the earth 's climate is influenced by many different factors, but the most fundamental concept in climate science is that the incoming solar energy…

  • Argumentative Essay On Greenhouse Effect

    increase of Earth’s temperature over time, through the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is the rising carbon level in the atmosphere, trapping radiation, and heating the Earth. Humans are depending on fossil fuels that release these emissions. Though we have increasingly started depending on renewable resources that don’t release these harmful gases into the atmosphere, we can already see the effects today and if this doesn’t stop now the planet will be destroyed. The human intervention…

  • The Greenhouse Effect: Climate Change And Global Warming

    Earth is a planet that has relatively stable temperatures. This is possible because of Earth’s atmosphere as it consists of a thin layer of gases that forms a “cloak” around the planet. There are 97 percent of climate scientists that agrees that people on Earth has changed its atmosphere in a considerable way over the past two centuries. The results of this is due to the greenhouse effect that causes global warming (Lallanila, 2015b). But what is the greenhouse effect? What is the greenhouse…

  • Causes Of Climate Change

    Climate change is a global-scale atmospheric externality. It is an issue that must be understood and addressed globally. Environmental trends based on scientific and observed studies have shown an increase of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, an increase of the Earth’s surface and ocean temperature causing a decline in sea ice, and more prevalent extreme weather patterns- all due to human influence. However, trying to understand each of these trends separately will not fully explain the causes…

  • Global Warming Causes

    increase of the overall average temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere. This gradual increase in temperature is caused mostly by greenhouse gases in Earth’s atmosphere which include carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, water vapor, and ozone. Normally, these gases are essential in the process of the greenhouse effect which is supposed to keep the Earth from being too hot or cold. Unfortunately, the amount of these gases in the atmosphere has increased due to human activity and this in turn is…
