    eerie until a humpback whale gently swimming sings his song, and the space fills with wonder, that is until there is a disturbance. Cetaceans evolved to use sound as their way of sensing the environment, navigating, foraging, and selecting mates. Anthropogenic sounds have negative effects on marine life. Humans produce their own underwater sounds through activities such as aircraft over flights, boats and ships (vessels), tourism, stationary offshore activities, air gun firing, sonars, explosions, and

  • Anthropogenic Global Warming

    Introduction Anthropogenic Global Warming Many consider global warming to be the largest threat that faces the earth today. This is just the opposite as we could not survive without global warming! The topic for this speech will be whether or not there is an imminent threat of Anthropogenic (or manmade global warming) at the end of my speech I would like the audience to develop the truce perspective on the issues of manmade global warming. This will be done through a small representation of the

  • Anthropogenic Effects Of Upwelling

    threshold is past the organism can no longer cope with the stress and it negatively affects the organism. Anthropogenic induced climate change are adding many stress factors on organism that they have to cope with at once. Upwelling occurs when winds from the North come down, bringing up the nutrient rich waters up with them. This nutrient is good for the area, however due to other anthropogenic causes this can be a recipe for disaster. The East Pacific Coast is an area that experiences upwelling

    Anthropogenic Climate Change Brandie Fonseca Informal Logic 103 Instructor John Moore May 21, 2012 An issue that is felt throughout the world is Anthropogenic Climate Change formally known as Global Warming. This word wide problem is one that needs to be addressed immediately as well as long term. Anthropogenic Climate Change is the rise of the earth’s temperature caused by human activities. The continuing rise in the earth’s temperature will cause extreme change in our earth’s ecosystems

  • Anthropogenic Noise On Cetaceans

    mates. Anthropogenic sounds have negative effects on marine life. Humans produce their own underwater sounds through activities such as aircraft overflights, boats and ships (vessels), tourism, stationary offshore activities, air gun firing, sonars, explosions, and methods to control movement of marine life (W. Johnson Richardson and Bernd Würsig, 1997). Many studies have discovered vessels as the main contributor of anthropogenic noise. It is difficult to study the effects of anthropogenic noise

    Many of them have discovered evidence that helps confirm that anthropogenic sounds can have negative effects on marine life. Research from the Heard Island Feasibility Study found that sperm whales and pilot whales stopped producing the sounds they use to communicate with each other when the researchers transmitted sounds

  • Anthropogenic Sources Of Energy

    Methane. Methane is the second most prevalent GHG emitted by anthropogenic sources, with anthropogenic emissions accounting for approximately 70-80% of the total CH4 emissions (EPA, 2015; Johnson and Johnson, 1995). Emissions of methane have increased exponentially from the pre-industrial period to present day. During the years 1000 – 1750, CH4 concentrations in the atmosphere were approximately 700 parts per billion by volume (ppbv) (IPCC, 2001; EPA, 2015). In the year 2015, CH4 concentrations

    actions, and many are just living their lives as if nothing is going on. The issue of anthropogenic, or human caused climate change has arose due to the increase in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses in our atmosphere. Of these, Carbon dioxide is a huge culprit in anthropogenic climate change, as humans produce incredible amounts of it through environmentally irresponsible machines. Also, the issue of anthropogenic climate change is becoming a political issue, with the main argument being over

  • The Issue of Anthropogenic Climate Change

    2115 Words  | 8 Pages

    The issue of anthropogenic climate change, more commonly identified as global warming, has become hotly debated in the media and political arenas. Critics argue that global warming does not exist and that it is merely a fiction created by the science community. Such critics argue further that what scientists are describing as global warming is either a transitory condition or part a cyclical situation that has occurred throughout history. As a result of this critical opposition the question becomes
