Global Warming Report

Over the past few decades scientist have been observing a warming trend in the over all temperature of the earth. Although the earth has been known to go through warm and cold periods, it seems that we humans are causing the earth to heat up this time. The greenhouse effect is causing the earth to go through this warming trend that we call global warming. The greenhouse effect is caused when the infrared radiation from the sun is absorbed in atmospheric gasses such as water vapor, carbon dioxide...

Global Warming (Report Paper)

SUMMARY Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the earth’s atmosphere. It happens when high level of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane are trapped in the atmosphere causing a rise in temperature. Although the idea that global warming is similar to climate change, there are still some distinctions with these two concepts. As mentioned earlier, there is a shift from low temperature to high temperature caused mainly by gases when we speak of global warming. While...

Global Warming: Who’s to Blame? It seems that a single week does not go by without hearing something about global warming. It has been all over the news for as long as I can remember. Because of this media bombardment, I would be surprised to find a single person in America that does not know about global warming. I’ll also go so far as to assume that the vast majority of the people you ask will tell you that not only is global warming occurring, but humans are to blame. In fact...

Is Global Warming a Conspiracy? Global warming is the rise in the average temperature of Earth’s atmosphere and oceans since the late 19th century and its projected continuation. Since the early 20th century, Earth’s mean surface temperature has increased by about 0.8 °C, with about two thirds of the increase occurring since 1980. Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and scientists are more than 90% certain that it is primarily caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse...

Global Warming

time to rise again to secure our future,” said former Vice-President Al Gore. Al Gore made a speech about global warming and said how to keep it healthy. The earth can be kept healthy and exist longer without global warming. Global warming is becoming a popular topic around the world. “Global Warming and the Greenhouse Effect” discusses what global warming is. This is how global warming is caused. Energy travels from the sun to the earth to heat it. The earth then radiates energy back into...

Controversy over Global Warming One of the largest argued topics in our world today is over global warming. People argue that is real, and others argue that it is fake. The effects of global warming create a growing danger for the ecosystem we live in by damaging glaciers and weather patterns. Humans contribute to global warming yet non-believers will think otherwise. Global warming is the greatest challenge facing our planet. According to the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change) most...

Global warming

What is the main cause of global warming? In the last century, the sea level has rose for about 17 centimetres. The rate in the last decade is however, nearly the double of last century. Major global surface reconstructions also showed that the Earth has warmed since 1880 and it’s still going on. Oceans are also warming up, due to the heat. Not only that, the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets are melting, glaciers are disappearing and extreme weather events have occurred more often. All these...
