    Global warming has many effects on the world, but it especially has an impact on the ocean. Global temperature rise can affect many ecosystems, and the species within them. Coral Reefs Coral reefs are valuable resources for ocean life. Coral and algae have a symbiotic relationship, with the algae living in the coral and being the primary food source for the coral. As a consequence, this symbiotic relationship provides habitats for small fish and plants due to the abundance of food found in the…

    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…

    greenhouse effect and global warming are both issues that are talked about by scientists all across the globe. The greenhouse effect is "the trapping of heat in the earth 's atmosphere." (Shuster, 583) Energy from the sun warms the earth. That heat then dstributes back to the atmosphere where it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. (Shuster, 583) One of the most common greenhouse gases is carbon dioxide. When too much heat is absorbed, the atmosphere of the earth begins to warm. This may lead to…

    1. Introduction 1.1 Background Global warming is the term used to describe an increase in the temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and its oceans. Global warming is caused by either an external factor or our (humans) own action. Examples of external factors are volcanic eruptions and the variation of orbiting the Sun. The burning of fossil fuels, smoking and so on are factors done by humans which could lead towards air pollution. The particles will basically make the ozone layer (the layer…

    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 someone’s life. Global warming is causing the earth to change in multiple ways, some too…
