Imagine this, it is one hundred and two degrees outside. The polar ice caps are gone, along with all the people and animals dependent on them for their survival. Long, intense heat waves continue scorching the Earth, and the destruction from natural disasters is on the rise. There is a reason behind all of this madness; this reason is global warming. Global warming is a problem that some people choose to ignore. They claim it does not exist. Global warming is real. It is time for people to stop ignoring it and start searching for a solution. Although many people do not believe in global warming, blaming the climate change on the sun, global warming is a serious danger to the Earth because it could have serious effects on the plant and…show more content…
The melting ice cube symbolizes the melting of the ice caps, and as it melts there will be more water in the glass, symbolizing the rise in sea level. This is an example of an elementary science experiment that proves just how simple it is to understand the effects of global warming. The shift of plant and animal ranges is caused by the changing climate. Places that had been too cold for certain plants and animals are now warming up and may be warm enough to allow different plants and animals to live there then had in the past. While other, already warm, places may become too hot for certain plants and animals. Carbon Dioxide is one of the key contributors to the concept of global warming, because it is so easily released in our world today. Carbon dioxide comes from natural processes. It comes from burning fossil fuels, volcanic eruptions and even a person’s own breathing. This concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is measured in parts per million. Before the Industrial Revolution, there was around 280 parts per million of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Now there are 395.93 parts per million as of October 2014, according to CO2Now.org. This shows a dramatic increase, over one third, in the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide and the number is still increasing. Scientists have said that the damages will be irreparable if the concentration reaches 450 parts per
