General Purpose: To inform my audience about the effects of global warming. Specific Purpose: I want my audience to understand briefly the negative effects of global warming in our environment.
The negative effects of global warming are slowly ruining the environment we live in. In a few decades, it is possible our Earth will be very uncomfortable to live on. I have researched the issues of global warming and have found out as much as I possibly can in order to deliver an informative speech about global warming. Global warming is an extremely important topic to me, because knowing what the negative effects of global warming are and what can be done to help solve those effects, our environment can stay safe and protected, and clearly the environment is one of the most essential parts of our daily lives. There is a significant amount of negative effects for the environment and for human life due to global warming. Global warming affects each and every one of us. We should all be concerned with what is happening to our planet.
TRANSITION: We will be more inclined to help reduce the effects of global warming if we understand what these effects are… 1.) Rising temperatures are more dangerous for certain areas over other areas. 2.) The rising temperatures are causing changes in our precipitation. 3.) Over time, global warming will worsen and cause more problems for us, as well as our future generations.
I. The main and most detrimental effect of global warming is the increase in the global average temperature.
A. In the past 100 years the Earth’s global average temperature rose by 0.98 to 1.62 degrees Fahrenheit.
1. This rise in temperature has been confirmed by at least 20 scientific communities.
a. This includes all of the national academies of science of the G8 states.
b. G8 is the world’s most industrialized nations working to stop the increase in...
