The Astounding and Indisputable Surrounding Scientific Evidence Global Warming

The topic of global warming is one of great discussion throughout the scientific community. The scientific evidence surrounding the global warming is astounding and undisputable such as the occurrence of heat-sealing carbon dioxide confirmed in the mid-19th century. With increased greenhouse gasses, the earth’s temperature is warming. The earth is also responding to solar outputs seen in ice cores sampled from Greenland, Antarctica. In addition, sea levels are rising rapidly compared to years prior. “Global sea level rose about 17 centimeters (6.7 inches) in the last century. The rate in the last decade, however, is nearly double that of the last century.” (Climate change: How do we know? n.d., para. 6) Not only are ocean levels …show more content…

The rate in the last decade, however, is nearly double that of the last century.” (Climate change: How do we know? n.d., para. 6) Not only are ocean levels rising, ocean temperatures are also warming, absorbing much of the escalation in heat. Temperatures have also been on the rise, since the 1970’s, earth has recorded the warmest 20 years on record, 10 of these years transpired in the last 12 years. The scientific evidence continues throughout our earth with regards to shrinking ice sheets, glacial retreats, declining Artic sea ice as well as ocean acidification. The acidity levels within the ocean has jumped by 30 percent, subsequently from humans producing higher levels of carbon dioxide. There is a consensus within the scientific community, global warming is a reality. According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (n.d.) website, 97 percent of scientists agree, global
