We should all be very concerned about our future on Earth as human beings. We may not be at such an immediate risk of burning to death, but our future descendants are. Every year, the overall temperature has gone up slowly. Eventually Earth will be too hot to live on, and the human race will become extinct! The best way to save our future is to start now. Americans should be conscientious of global warming and should watch their CO2 emissions because increasing CO2 concentrations means an increase in Earth’s temperature.
Some small, day-to-day things you can do to help are finding alternatives to driving as much as possible, make energy efficiency a dominant factor when choosing appliances, turn lights off when not using them, recycle, use less water when cleaning yourself or your home, eat locally produced food, and more. Cars release high levels of carbon dioxide, so doing things like walking to work, carpooling, and riding on public transportation instead of driving yourself everywhere. The more energy you use, the more carbon you’re putting into the atmosphere so using energy efficient appliances, saving water, recycling, turning lights off when you don’t need them, and eating locally produced foods will reduce your carbon footprint. It takes a great deal of energy to ship foods from long distances; keep lights and household appliances running; and clean, distribute, and pump water through our homes. Some large things you can do are stop deforestation, get our elected leaders involved and fight misinformation. Deforestation is said to account for 10 percent of the world's “heat-trapping emissions” (Union)
Global warming is the increase in the earth's average temperature that occurs naturally (Flynn). Global warming is happening and needs to be stopped. Global warming is a serious problem, and from what scientists can gather from the research, the main producers of greenhouse gas emission are humans, causing serious threats to the Earth. Research on global warming has shown that melting glaciers, droughts, and other weather disasters are increasing at an alarming rate. Furthermore, global warming is causing harm to crops. Throughout history, species have responded to the changing of the world’s temperature. A hazardous concern, however, is the wildlife and ecosystems of balance at this rapid rate of change happening today. Furthermore, global warming is causing harm to crops. The government must take action. Some of the economists call global warming the greatest example of failure the world has ever seen. Global warming must be abolished because global warming is destroying the world.
Global Warming is an increase in the average temperature around the world. Scientists have been able to trace the global climate and concluded that over the last ten thousand years, the climate of the earth has been relatively constant. In the twentieth century, the global temperature increased 0.740°C. The change in the warming, and cooling, of average global temperatures cause climate change, a change related to climate patterns such as temperatures, rainfall, wind and humidity. This flux in temperature is affected by multiple factors making it hard to determine the true source of problem. Evidence supports that the earth's warming is natural; however, some data indicates that the warming trend has increased due to human activity.
Global warming is the gradual increase of temperature in the world’s atmosphere. It is often caused by high levels of carbon dioxide and other pollutants. It may also be increased by fossil fuels and agriculture causing many severe consequences, such as: species extinction, reduced forest and coral reefs, drought increases in Africa, severe flooding in Asia, threats to small islands because of ocean levels rising, and severe weather in hurricane zones. Our society today is destroying the climate. Every time we drive our vehicles just to get out of the house for fun or because we forget and have to make a double run, when we run our electric too long, wasting water, burning our trash, especially plastics, and just not taking proper care of

NGS integrates greenhouse into other major policy initiatives, such as the Natural Heritage Trust, and launches new measures to increase greenhouse emission reduction activities across the Australian community. It provides the strategic framework for an effective greenhouse response and for meeting current and future international commitments. It will provide a fresh impetus for action by governments, stakeholder groups and the broader community and set directions for that action into the next century.
Everyone can participate in reducing global warming. Alternate energy sources that do not emit carbon-dioxide and that can convert the sunlight, wind energy into electrical energy. Also, we should reduce the amount of electricity we used at home by turning off our computers and electricity while we are away from home. At home we should develop the habits of energy saving, choose low energy technologies and turn down your thermostats when the house is empty in winter. We can take our commitment to renewable energy. And the industry would have to reduce the emission of gases. Industrialized nation should have different emission target. We need to take action quickly to reduce the emission of gases and there should be an agreement internationally to target the emission.
The most complicated issue facing world leaders today very well may be global warming. Over time, more and more warnings from the scientific community have come about. Some of them being the non-stop build up of human related greenhouse gases that are mainly produced by the burning of fossil fuels, economic, technological, and political issues. In late 2010, world-wide talks began and many agreements were made between many of the leaders of foreign countries, and an international process for dealing with this particular problem received many votes of confidence.
What happens when too much carbon dioxide gets omitted into the Earth’s atmosphere? The condition known as Global Warming occurs. Global Warming is the rising of the Earth’s surface temperature due to chemicals in the atmosphere. Global Warming has many threats on the climate and even the health of the people on this planet. Some of these threats include the altering of crop seasons and even effect the way organisms survive on the planet. The first thing I think I should discuss when talking about global warming is what causes it to occur.
Global Warming is a major problem that needs to be addressed. Its impacts are already costly and significant and is just the beginning of a dangerous trend. The impact of global warming or the more trending term “climate change” affects not only yourself but the entire world. “The earth is saying something with record heat, drought, storms and fire. Scientists are telling us this is what global warming looks like. It 's time to listen – and take action. There 's plenty we can do.” (Extreme Weather).
Global warming is the rising of average temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere due to greenhouse gases. Greenhouse gases are gases that trap heat in the atmosphere. The greenhouse effect consists of gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and water vapor insulating the Earth’s surface and helping it maintain warm temperatures. However since there is so much carbon dioxide filling the air the Earth atmosphere absorbs almost all of the suns emission. When the sun heats the earth the atmosphere is supposed to radiate most of the heat but instead it takes all the warmth and uses it to power the Earth causing a buildup of green house gases. This has been taught to everyone, but is it true or a hoax? Some scientists argue that
The goal is to bring global warming under control by controlling the release of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases into the atmosphere. There are numerous ways to control such things that would help us build a better living environment. The largest source of greenhouse gases is in the use of electricity. Reducing the power usage would benefit the greenhouse effect because much of the energy we use in our homes comes from power plants which burn fossil fuel to power our electric products. Reducing the amount of electricity used in homes by switching to energy efficient lighting. Buying home appliance that is labeled as high in energy savings, because all major appliances are all day and night.
Rather than worry too much about emissions, we should accept the world is going to get warmer anyway and adapt to global warming by building better flood defenses and developing drought resistant crops.
In the February 1st edition of the New York Times, journalist Andrew C. Revkin discusses the rising threat of global warming, and more importantly, the disagreement between various nations and institutions upon the definition of “dangerously high global warming.” Revkin’s article, titled “Deciding How Much Global Warming Is Too Much,” brings to light the various failed attempts at creating a barrier at which industrialized countries (the main producers of the greenhouse gasses which result in global warming) will cut the release of harmful gasses into the atmosphere. Revkin also discusses how upcoming events, conferences; reports will hopefully solve this problem.
