Global Warming - Is It Man-Made or Mother Nature or Both?
Global warming is define as the global increase in the average temperature of the earth, that near the air-surface and the oceans which caused by the emission of the gases. These include carbon dioxide, methane and nitrogen that trap the sun’s heat in the earth. It’s happened since the mid-twentieth century and its projected would be continuation. Global warming is an extremely severe problem facing the world today. Its effects and causes have been on the rise and people need to do something about it before the problem gets any worse.Global warming is an increase in the earth's temperature, which can be caused by the use of fossil fuels, and industrial or agricultural processes. Man-made emissions are adding to the amount of carbon dioxide already being naturally released. These harmful processes have been leading to a large increase in the buildup of "greenhouse gases," which are carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and water vapor. Even though some people are doubters and believe global warming is just a smoke screen or an environmental fad to get the government to fund programs for useless research and these funds could be better spent on other causes. There are other people who really take global warming seriously and work very hard to make the quality of life on earth better and be more sustainable. While these doubters voice their opinions, those who believe our earth is warming up have shown that indeed it is and the human race is only partly to blame for the issue, that Mother Nature has her own agenda in the warming of the earth. The doubters feel that there is no conclusive evidence that climate change is happening, even though there is evidence of changes in the measured temperature of the earth, the skeptics feel it is a natural thing and nothing to worry about. With warmer summers, colder winters, the variation in the precipitation around the world, the floods, the hurricanes that are getting stronger leads us to wonder. After years of some people believing and others being skeptical over the existence of global warming, it has been deemed a fact and no matter how we look at it, the hard truth is that humans may be causing part of it, but Mother Nature is causing the other part. If we continue to haggle over whether global warming is a real threat or not, we are wasting our time and resources of not finding a viable solution to global warming and are putting our planet at greater risk. The believers think the increased temperatures of the earth prove that global warming exists as the main problem and it should be taken seriously. The skeptics believe the increase in temperature is just a natural happening, and if there is such a thing as global warming it is nothing major to worry about. The believers also feel humans have to take some responsibility in the global warming process. Humans contribute to growth and advancement of industry, which leads to an increase in air pollution, greenhouse gases and the burning of fossil fuels. The skeptics still feel global warming is a natural event and seems to not worry too much about it. Floods, fires, melting ice and feverish heat, and the High freezing, the planet seems to be having a midsummer breakdown. It’s not just a signal of things to come, scientists say, but a sign of troubling climate change already under. With the heat that is affecting the most of the parts Africa and south Asia, the people who believe in global warming would say this was a sure sign of it. The disbelievers would say it was just a natural occurrence. This heat wave blasted South Punjab in Pakistan and at one point over seven people died on a daily basis during last ten years on average. The heat wave caused forest fires and the forest fires are also affecting the atmosphere due to heat and specially smoke, on the other hand the destruction of forests is initiating a cycle of heat, which will cause global...
