Over the last century, predominantly in the last twenty years, the earth has endured unparalleled heating. A person’s first response might be why? Hasn’t global warming always existed? Yes. It has always been a menacing epidemic but there have been obvious changes to the environment. With the drastic weather changes, it is suspected that all of the polar ice sheets should be melted by 2100. Many scientists have studied what could be the cause of this epidemic. The fact of the matter is that the scientists have established what exactly is causing it, which are high levels of carbon dioxide. Global warming is life threatening and for the majority, caused by the human race and our technological advances. A collection of scientific evidence…show more content…
Another example is coral reefs, which are highly sensitive to small changes in water temperature, suffered the worst bleaching—or die-off in response to stress—ever recorded in 1998, with some areas seeing bleach rates of 70 percent. Experts expect these sorts of events to increase in frequency and intensity in the next 50 years as sea temperatures rise (News). The public has begun to believe that global warming, if it exists at all, is natural. The news, radio and magazines portray global warming as something you should not be afraid of. Why, you may ask is because there have been scares in the past that have resulted to extreme caution, death and catastrophe. So the media covers up the truth due to how they think the general public will respond. Since our country is one of the most censored societies out there it is easy to keep the public unaware of what may happen. Scientists on the other hand believe that global warming is a debacle that needs to be handled immediately. Though the long-lasting feud of global warming is caused by man versus global warming is natural many scientist have come to a conclusion that high CO2 levels and cutting of forestry are not the only reasons why. For example, in the past many areas have had dramatic changes of temperature that have created insufficient crops and finally leading to famine. There are also many
