Global brief paper - redo
Many people deny the fact that global warming is real; that a lot of it is caused by man. Man made global warming has become worse and worse throughout the years, and more research has proven that. It isn’t exactly 100% man-made global warming, but with a mix of manmade and natural global warming. Although it might seem like it is not such a big problem, manmade global warming has played more than 90% of the global warming’s problems currently. It has a lot of conditions, problems, and the solutions are possible, but taking action will be the harder part as a world. Anthony Machado explains that “Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists think man-made global warming is real. But despite an overwhelming consensus among the experts, many Americans still doubt that human activity is raising global temperatures” (Machado) which confirms the fact that many deny this. Yet facts pile on facts explaining and supporting that global warming is real. The question really is if one believes it is all manmade, natural, or a mix of both. Many believe that it is manmade because of the CFC’s released along with the carbon monoxide released in the air with more added reasons that stock on top of that. NASA states that “The influential U.N. climate panel said the probability human activity was the main cause of climate change was at least 90% in the last report in 2007” (NASA). That is research proves that it’s mostly humans causing all of this temperature changes and there is no reason not to believe that this is real. Is it really our fault or the government sucking at regulating the things being released in the air such as the CO2 from the millions of cars and trucks? A lot would say no, it’s the consumers’ choice on what they want to buy and what difference they want to make in this world. But in reality, it is hard to buy the other option. Electric cars are way too expensive for a lot of people and...
