Global Warming on Trial
Widespread debates about Global warming being natural or man-made has been going on since the last decade. The term “Global warming” refers to the global-average temperature increase that has been observed over the last one hundred years or more. Scientists believe that the humans are the reason why climate change exists. While on the other side of the controversial debate believes that it is all natural. After reading the article and a sufficient research, I can say that I am of those who pronounce that Global warming is a natural phenomenon. Humans are only partially responsible for the observed climate change. How can mankind cause a process that has been going on for millennia? Simply answered: we cannot. Long before mankind ever roamed the earth, the planet has known tropical climates and ice ages. So even without us, the planet warms up (global warming) and changes climate. So what does all that CO2 actually do? Well they recently came out with a report that we actually add to the effect of global warming even though nobody can tell by how much. This is very different from actually causing it. With its current output of greenhouse gases, mankind speeds up the change of climate. But we never caused it to happen because climate change was already an ongoing process. With or without us, climate change happens anyway. To try and stop it is to change nature. So yes, we are polluting, yes we do contribute to global warming. But global warming and climate change are not products of mankind.
