Global Warming
So does the earth need us or do we need the earth? Well we know that we need the Earth but how can we help what we need? Global Warming is killing our planet that is essential for our living. So many people have different views on Global Warming. Global Warming refers to an increase in the average temperature of the Earth as a result of the greenhouse effect, in which gases in the upper atmosphere trap solar radiation close to the planet's surface instead of allowing it to dissipate into space. Both natural and human-made conditions can contribute to global warming, but human beings can do several things to reduce the effects. Global warming is something that is actually accruing, and there’s so many things you can do to reduce global warming. There are ways we can help and there are also ways where wind power can clean the air.

Hansen is one of the most prominent global warming researchers and in 1988 he stated his opinion about global warming “It's my opinion that at least by 1995, the man in the street is going to notice this change in the probabilities. He is going to say, what's going on here?...We're having hot summers more often than we used to and the hottest ones are hotter than they used to be. (pg. 8 par.5) He also stated that human activity is going to cause the temperature to increase. So when the heat wave hit Chicago in July of 1995 Hansen said that it sounded accurate.

By reducing the use of fossil fuels, planting trees, reduce the waste we consume, conserving water, save the fuel we use, and reduce our usage of energy we ourselves can help stop the air pollution that we tend to pollute day to day, which will add to help stop the green gases to affect earth’s temperature. We have seen in recent years the dramatic increase in high temperatures during the summer, especially in Texas, triple digit temperatures for months. When we conserve water, energy, and gases were not just keeping the air cleaner but we also save a lot...
