An issue that is felt throughout the world is Anthropogenic Climate Change formally known as Global Warming. This word wide problem is one that needs to be addressed immediately as well as long term. Anthropogenic Climate Change is the rise of the earth’s temperature caused by human activities. The continuing rise in the earth’s temperature will cause extreme change in our earth’s ecosystems. The predetermined course to our ecosystems relies on climate change and its effects on ecosystems and life as we know it is at a vulnerable state. Anthropogenic Climate Change shifts relations with human life and presents severe biodiversity in

The Earth’s temperature has been rising over the years. Sail Bhattacharya a professor & head of a medical college claims that over the last 8000 years, Earth’s surface temperature raised by 1 degree Celsius only (1). He also said, at the present rate of global temperature would rise by 2.5 degrees Celsius by 2050” (1). It’s a fact that the earth has gotten warmer over the years. At this moment the temperature hasn't raised much, only 1 degree Celsius. It may seem like it’s not a big deal, but it actually is, because the rising temperature rate is increasing as time passes according to Sail Bhattacharya (1). The temperature rising might not cause much harm now, but can badly affect us or whoever is living on Earth in the future.
Rising temperatures are causing melting glaciers, which cause rising oceans. Rising oceans will envelop entire coastal cities, killing or displacing millions of people. Our food sources will dwindle; entire species of animals will become extinct as we destroy their homes to rebuild; and as our population skyrockets, an unimaginable number of humans will be left homeless, starving, and sick.
The earth as we know it is steadily changing. Weather its evolution, technology, weather or our environment, nothings is what it used to be. Climate is a major factor that is changing. This has been going on for quite some time yet, not taken seriously. Our planet has been much warmer in the past 2 centuries then ever before and scientist are working frantically to reduce this trend,
In this 21-century climate change is becoming worse and worse. There is water levels are rising, animals in cold areas are starting to die because of the rises temperatures, and humans' health is being at risk, why because of human activities. The activities that humans mostly do is burning fossil fuels and deforestation.
Our world is changing. Not for the good, it’s getting worse. Within the last two hundred years our climate has been changing. Ever since the discovery of how useful nonrenewable resources are our climate has been gradually getting warmer. Climate change is threat with many consequences from the ecosystems that people live in all the way down to the evolution of species in the wild. There are many clear and present dangers in the world today, but climate change is of the most importance causing species to go explode in numbers, average temperatures to increase, uncontrollable forest fires, and the quality of air depleting.
Climate change is happening and it is happening quite rapidly all around the world. The earth is undoubtedly warming and over the past one hundred years, Earth’s average temperature has increased by about 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit. (EPA 1) The big problem with the average temperature rising is that it can have a negative effect on the planet and potentially have dramatic shifts in the global climate. According to the EPA, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, “Many places have seen changes in rainfall, resulting in more floods, droughts, or intense rain, as well as more frequent and severe heat waves. The planet's oceans and glaciers have also experienced some big changes - oceans are warming and becoming more acidic, ice caps are
There is no myth concerning climate change, only vested interests arguing over humanities role in our current climate change event. By careful reasoning and logic this paper sets about systematically showing that not only is climate change real but that currently the planet is experiencing a period of warming that is without equal within any of our historical data. Most confronting of all is that humanity is significantly influencing this current event and has the ability to mitigate the consequences.
If the threat of animal extinction is not enough to encourage humans to step in and defuse the climate bomb we are setting, maybe the current natural disasters will help. However, change in climate is not the only side effect of global warming there is: draught, wild fires, heavy rains, floods, and hurricanes have been linked to global warming. "Not only are the oceans and atmosphere conspiring against us… but the crust beneath our feet seems likely to join in too," said Professor Bill McGuire (McKie). Earthquakes have been occurring recently, violently and simultaneously of each other, some so great they have caused tsunamis. The goals of governments and independent contributors are to educate its citizens on global warming and how our earth is being destroyed slowly because of human pollution.
Climate change is expanding worse and more dangerous each hour. Shocking facts are arising about climate change. What is more startling is how humans have been causing it, and it may affect us. For centuries, we as a human race have been completely belligerent to the signs staring us right in the face. If the damage is not repaired or progress slowed, consequences will be paid. The dangers of global warming are threatening wildlife and humans with conditions like rising sea level.

The ageing population may be considered as blessing to the economy. They have wide knowledge and experience which might get exploited.
Some changes in the earth’s temperature are unavoidable regardless of human activity for some reasons such as ocean cycles. But centuries of rising temperatures and sea water levels lie ahead of us if no action against it is taken. Although many scientific consensuses have been made, many important details remain unclear. Climate change will have many affects on people, plants, and animals. Many scientists are working everyday to better understand the future of climate change and how the effects will vary over time. Some observations made by scientists include a rise in the sea level, glacial shelves shrinking, changes in plants and animals, trees will bloom earlier in the spring, the growing season will be longer, it will take
Through the eyes of most scientists, global warming is seen as a very serious and severe threat. The actions taken by humans, such as industry and consumption of fossil fuels plus the increase in population and agriculture have played a big part in global warming. If something is not done soon the results could be very bad.
