Recently, global warming has become a big issue in the environmentally conscious society. It is often the topic of fiery debate amongst global politicians and is regularly featured in the tabloids. There are many arguments to prove the existence of global warming, but there are also many theories to disprove the existence. Confusion is caused through the ongoing debate of “ Is earth going through a normal cycle?, Is earth going through Global warming ? or Is earth going through a Cold age?”. There is actually no answer to this question since all of them can be taken into consideration. The earth is at once going through a normal cycle in which there is a warm age, through global warming due to greenhouse effect, and much cooler …show more content…
The average worldwide temperature is still climbing, though. Another result of hotter temperatures is a decrease in rain. As rainfall drops, a place can get hotter and hotter. As a result, crops can be harder and harder to grow and water to feed those crops and help survive the people who grow them can get more and more scarce. People can misjudge the increase in rainfall and decrease in temperature for a cold age instead of global warming. They can also misjudge the increasing temperatures in some countries for a warm age while a warm age cannot occur and affect the earth as quickly as it is being affected due to the greenhouse effect.

Although there are many changes in the world showing global warming, some scientists still find reasons for all of them that do not include global warming and the greenhouse effect. They state that recent climate developments are not something unusual and that they reflect a natural course of planetary events. Global warming has finally been explained: the Earth is getting hotter because the Sun is burning more brightly than at any time during the past 1,000 years, according to new research. A study by Swiss and German scientists suggests that increasing radiation from the sun is responsible for recent global climate changes.
