Global Warming: a “Hot” Topic
Global warming is a term that describes a continuous increase in the overall temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans, due to the effect of the greenhouse effect which is caused by an increase of carbon dioxide, water vapor, methane, and ozone. Earth’s atmosphere is warming up at a dangerous pace. Why is this so important and why should we care about global warming? Global warming is very important because not only is the increased in temperature melting glaciers and polar ice caps, buts it is also changing the weather patterns which forcing animals to migrate. The effects of global warming dangers the ecosystem and causes the earth to gradually increase in temperature.
Global warming has serious worldwide implications, though the type and magnitude of local effects varies considerably by region. This page highlights the consequences of global warming on a broad level. Unless we take immediate action to reduce global warming emissions, these impacts will continue to intensify, grow ever more costly and damaging, and increasingly affect the entire planet — including you, your community, and your family.
Global warming is considered the greatest consequence our atmosphere is facing and this is a crisis because once our ozone is depleted it is gone for good and is never coming back. Humankind really needs to react their actions they make if they want to survive another 100 years, and the way it’s looking at right now they are not going to make it.
The debate on global warming is divided into two separate sides: the people who argue that the climate is changing and the people who argue that global warming in itself is a “hoax”. Many researchers claims that the warming we have had the last 100 years is so small that, if we didn’t have meteorologists and climatologist to measure it, we wouldn’t have noticed it at all. The climatic changes as so minuscule that if not constantly monitored, the affects would not be...
