Global warming is phenomena linked to temperature rising because of emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases. It is one of the most important debates of today because of the seriousness of its impact on life on earth. The issue though is debated for its being just a reality or as a theory. Scientists are of the view and they provide evidence as well to support their argument that industrialization and energy utilization has the caused emissions of certain gases in our atmosphere. Those emissions are causing the temperature rise globally. So, in one way or the other, humans are cause of this trouble to the planet earth. They say that the rising temperature is melting glaciers and rising water level which would cause floods. On the other…show more content…
Some like Stephen Leahy have discussed the contribution of each industrial and agricultural country towards temperature rise. He mentions in his article “Global Temperatures Rising on a Devastating Trajectory” that the countries agreed to maintain a certain level of temperature rise annually but the agreement is not being followed. Others like Chris Moony talk about the reasons of melting ice glaciers causing threat to life of polar animals. His article “With enough Evidence, Even Skepticism Will Thaw” extends global warming to its impacts. He talks about melting glaciers and ecosystem. There are others like Johnston, Ian who talks about the impacts of global warming on health. They give different evidences regarding their claims. For example Our industry and energy needs are the basic reasons of global warming. And ironically, developed nations which are playing major role for formulating the global policies are failing to formulate effective policies to control global warming and to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Article “Record-breaking climate events all over the world are being shaped by global warming, scientists find” published by “Washington Post” on April 24, 2017 also said that the top most catastrophe events occurred were due to global warming (Chelsea). Though, it says that global warming cannot be blamed for everything that
