Global Warming is real!
Global warming has been a massive controversial theory that has been researched and calculated for years. An abundance of people do not know that their lives have been impacted by global warming. These researchers have been collecting data for years and years proving its existence. Many scientist and intellectual figures may say that in fact global warming is real; many other scientist and intellectual figures may agree with each other that it’s a joke and hoax, they have been arguing over this topic very seriously, although I believe that we should halt the questioning and should focus on how we can take action and help our environment. Researchers believe that global warming is real concluding that hotter temperatures, ozone thinning and natural disasters are effects of this situation. People may notice that temperatures have been increasing over the years. The United States Environmental Protection Agency had stated “According to the U.S. Global Change Research Program, the temperature in the U.S. has increased by 2 degrees in the last 50 years and precipitation by 5%.” This was a fact from researchers that proved that the United States had been affected by global warming resulting in temperature increase. If this becomes a trend in the future years, global warming will effect people at greater temperatures and it may be unpleasant. The ozone has been another
effect of global warming. Our ozone layer has been thinning, which kills the substance in the air that save us from the heat and dangerous toxins from the sun. The United States Energy Information Administration stated “The hole in the ozone layer in the earth’s upper atmosphere (stratosphere) reduces the greenhouse effect because ozone is a greenhouse gas.” This exposes us to more heat, with more heat; glaciers are melting and increase the body mass in water. Another fact from the National Geographic article “Sea Level Rise” states “Scientific research indicates sea levels worldwide have been rising at a rate of 0.14 inches (3.5 millimeters) per year since the early 1990s. The trend, linked to global warming, puts thousands of coastal cities, like Venice, Italy and even whole islands at risk of being claimed by the ocean.”(Scientists from National Geographic). Increasing water in the oceans can eliminate small islands and hover over small cities as well. As one can see clearly, there is a chain reaction within the effects of global warming. Natural disasters that occur are hurricanes, from body of water levels rising from in oceans this can create a hurricanes that damages towns and cities where people reside. Another natural disaster that is an effect from global warming is wild fires. With all the pollution and hot temperature circulating within the air this can create fires that can spread and destroy human civilization.
Many Researches may believe that global warming is non-existent. They believe that this is a myth and use global warming to tax and control people of the world. For example, they try to instill the fear and panic into humans and trick us people to invest more money into something not real to begin with. I researched a piece of text “Your View: Ignore wrong-headed climate change alarmists” written by Steve DiMarzo Jr, Rhode Island chapter coordinator for the New England Antiquities Research Association. One quote that was found states “It is all about
money to be made by those who continually want to frightened the uneducated public into thinking that man alone can actually change the weather and that we have to get rid of our fossil fuels.” Many scientists believe this quote because it is all about the money. How is cruel is that for companies and their employees to make believe global warming. If global warming is nonexistent then why are we supplying money to help...
