“Scientists’ overwhelming conclusion is that climate change is happening and human activity is the primary culprit,” (“Climate Change”). The world we live in is falling apart more and more every day. Pollution; Global Warming; Climate Change; These are all problems that caused by people who have come forward in recent years, one of the biggest issues is climate change. The United States government needs to take aggressive steps to combat climate change because scientist have warned that if the climate changing progresses at its current rate, it could have disastrous consequences for life on Earth. Data shows that climate change is linked to rising sea levels, droughts, an increase in the risk of extinction of many species, and the increase in severe storms. With all the issues that are connected to climate change we are not doing enough to try to counteract the lasting effects it has on our environment.
Did you know that 97 percent of climate scientists agree that climate change in the last century is due to human activities? Global warming is a gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and other pollutants. Due to these things, we have encountered unusual climate changes, such as ocean acidification and the melting of ice caps. Global warming is real and can be reduced as well as affected by humans, but it is not a topic we need to prioritize.
As a kid who has cared about nature his entire life, and an avid modern environmentalist for four years and counting, this issue has been at the center of my psyche for quite some time. I have seen public perspective on this issue change before my eyes. From the original rejection of Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth movie on “global warming” to personally marching alongside 300,000 people in our nation's capital to raise awareness on climate change. However, despite all of these avenues the issue is still spoken about as this distant idea that eventually will be a disaster. Many politicians and news networks speak of the need for slow implementation of policies and programs to right our environmental wrongs. The best way to paraphrase the common narrative of this issue would be to say, climate change is going to happen down the road, it will probably be bad and trying to fix it in the near future would be a good idea. That weak call to action shoves climate change onto the long to-do list of the leaders of our world. Not only does it not create the urgency needed to actually curb the effects of our environmental ignorance, but it does not accurately describe the threat of a changing climate. Treating this like a political issue will not allow for the rigorous changes needed to address such a problem in the timely manner that is required.
Throughout the years climate change has been a controversial issue affecting individuals worldwide; climate change has been debated by scientists including the rest of the world. Many factors can affect climate change such as biological factors and human actions. The intricate details are what go unnoticed and unmanaged, people may be greatly against this claim. However, it is underlying factors, like landfills and driving cars, that help maintain the increasing temperature of the earth thus, climate change has become a controversial topic. There have been concerns that climate change does not exist but there is reliable proof that it does even if many scientists do not agree on the existence of climate change.
As Earths average temperature increases every year, the discussion of climate change has become a significant topic in the scientific community. Human activities such as powering factories, running automobiles or something as simple as burning wood for heat, emit dangerous greenhouse gases. What makes these greenhouse gases so detrimental is that they absorb the heat radiating off of Earth and keep it in the lower atmosphere creating a “blanket” of warmth around the Earth’s surface. This causes a drastic increase in the Earths average temperature. Due to the rise in temperature, the polar caps have been melting faster than ever, this is dangerous not only because of the risk of floods and sea level increase but ocean water will become less saline and ecosystems will be destroyed, impacting humans just as much as marine life. In the article, Understand faulty thinking to tackle climate change by George Marshall, Marshall states that most people in our world today do not care about climate change because it will not affect them, “Which points to the real problem: climate change is exceptionally amorphous, … no deadlines, no geographic location, no single cause or solution.” (Marshall 2014). Because the author makes it clear that climate change is indeed a great plight, and fails to be acknowledged by people, it is a significant matter that should be discussed
Climate change. It has been on all of our minds as more and more controversy and panic are induced by new data being collected all the time. The very thought of it as the truth begins to fade into the foreground is enough to make many people sick. As this problem begins to take political forefronts, the question is, what are we going to do about it? Fortunately, public opinion and political concern as it has in the past and still does, has motivated individuals and even entire nations to take action against the upcoming threat. However, not all individuals are open to the truth of the existence and significance of climate change.
Climate change has been gaining momentum for some time now and it has become popular enough to start mass debates. Climate scientists are pushing as hard as they can to spread awareness and it has become a topic of interest because of the way it can affect all of us. In this introduction of the book, Climate Change: What It Means For Us, Our Children, and Our Grandchildren, Joseph F. C. DiMento and Pamela Doughman try to convince the general public that understanding climate change is crucial and although climate change may seem challenging to grasp, it is understandable with some effort. As a hook, the authors begin with subclaims supporting the two main parts of the main claim, climate change is important to understand and it is understandable, to allow the reader to know what content will be shared by the book. The subclaims are supported effectively by evidences referring to factual data and alluding to popular culture relevant to the audience. Even the conflicting viewpoints are acknowledged and analyzed to show why the author's perspective is more logical.
We don't think that the climate is changing but it is in fact happening right now and at a very rapid pace and this very quote sums up our view of climate change, "I play fictitious characters often solving fictitious problems. I believe mankind has looked at climate change in the same way, as if it were a fiction." - Leonardo DiCaprio. Most people view it as a minor problem and they believe it won't affect us in the future. But if this isn't stopped now, it may become a major threat to the human race as well as mother earth. Some solutions can be as simple as bringing your own bag to buy your products to place them in. If you bring your own bag when shopping then you can stop the manufacturing of billions of bags being produced by doing a task as simple as bringing your own bag
climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. It is undisputedly clear that human are partly responsible for global warming through deforestation burning fossil fuels and other changes we have caused to the land. There has not only been a significant increase in temperature across the globe but the seal level has rose 20cm in the past century alone. the (Intergovernmental panel of climate change, IPCC) has also tracked the “unprecedented recent rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases since the beginning of the industrial revolution.” It is alarming that the emissions of greenhouse gas continue to rise globally and it is deeply concerning that all countries, particularly developing countries, are vulnerable
Climate change. That’s a word that people hear often; in the news, by other people, by politicians, and really just all over the world. most people though, just brush it off like it is nothing, and continue with their daily lives like it is some far off issue that we don't have to worry about right now. What they don’t know is that climate change is happening right now in front of our eyes, and it’s not just the ice caps melting and a bunch of dead polar bears. Climate change will also slowly kill people, and make life harder for all of us like it did to numerous species of plants and animals. Even after they hear all of that information, people still just shrug and say, “Oh, I will be long dead before all of that happened.” which is most likely true, but people should think about future generations. Imagine if you were born in the future and the earth was barely habitable due to climate change, you would think, “Why didn't our ancestors do something about this when they still could?” And that’s why we should care more about our planet. This essay will tell you about some of the major and devastating effects that climate change will bring if we do not take action now and work together to make a cleaner, renewable, and more sustainable planet.
he citizens of the richest countries in the world feel the least guilt about their impact on climate change despite it being the greatest (Monbiot). Yet by ignoring it, not only are they harming the world, but people of places that are more affected by the current climate change. Clearly, people need to care about one another before they can care about climate change.
Climate change is a dilemma in which anticipated too long to resolute, Earth will forever be damaged; bringing life on Earth to a permanent transition in an unfavorable state. With many contributing factors to climate change, humans have generated numerous amounts of damage, rather than showing an effort to save the atmosphere. Believe it or not, climate change is a contributing factor on human lifespan, potentially lowering the average amount of time each human spends on Earth. On the contrary, many companies like Greenpeace have scrutinized climate change and found affordable ways in cleaning our environment. Companies like Greenpeace offer a very reasonable pricing that could transpire economies positively rather than negatively. Generally speaking, finding a solution to climate change should be the main thought for each and every person’s mind; being that personal health and consideration for future generations have more of an impact than other issues in society today.
Along with high poverty levels, lack of education, and issues with food and water security. Climate change is one of the many, yet most serious trials facing our world today. The world’s climate has changed drastically over the years. To be specific, one example would be the intense warming pattern that began in the middle nineteen-twenties and continued into the millennium and even into today. While, there is new knowledge regarding the topic of climate change and scientific technology, such as Earth-orbiting satellites that can help with climate change vital action is still required by the individuals of the world. In order to, prevent the danger it poses to the future of Earth and its people, wildlife species, and weather and sea temperatures and patterns (Weems, C. C., 2017).
Climate change also known as global warming, is the rise in the Earth's surface temperatures. Even though the rise in the Earth's surface temperature may be slight it can still have a wide range of effects on ecosystems, rising sea levels, severe weather events, and droughts. A staggering amount of scientist believe that climate change is caused mainly due to the human use of fossil fuels. When fossil fuels are used, carbon dioxide is released along with other greenhouse gases into the air. Those gases trap the heat within the atmosphere. Some examples of ways humans use fossil fuels are oil, coal, and natural gas. Humans depend on theses fossil fuels to function everyday life. For example we use these fuels to heat our homes, run our vehicles, and are used in the power industry to produce electricity.
