Global Warming Essay Arguing the Side: Humans Are Not The Cause

Extracts from this document...


Aaron Sacks 3/2/11 Period 4 Global Warming Essay Side: Humans Are Not The Cause Global warming is defined as an increase in the earth's atmospheric and oceanic temperatures during a certain specified amount of time. Many people believe that global warming is caused by humans and the greenhouse gases and fossil fuels that they release in to the environment. Obviously, everyone has the right to their own opinion but only one opinion can be correct. I and many others believe that global warming is simply a trend, an event that takes place only once in a while but has a large affect on the community. Global warming is not caused my humans and the potential environmentally harming activities that they participate in. ...read more.


aren't the cause of global warming is the false trends between carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and the risings in temperature. The trends between carbon dioxide and the risings do show some correlation but this does not mean causation. Research has shown that the recent temperature spikes occurred before carbon dioxide spikes, meaning that carbon dioxide (a main greenhouse gas) was not the cause of the sudden heat. Another important piece of evidence is that water vapor is a large part of the greenhouse effect. Studies have shown that water vapor is about 95 percent of the greenhouse effect and that 99.9 percent of water vapor is from natural gases. ...read more.


As well, there are facts saying that if this warming period was driven by greenhouse gases and carbon dioxide that it would have had to have started around 1940 and then it would have slowly risen from there. Lastly, research has shown that warming started in 1850 and rose sharply until 1940 and then decreased for the next 35 years. All of these trends depict that there is no such thing as human made global warming and that global warming is a conspiracy filled with lies. Global warming is definitely not caused by humans, the facts speak for themselves. People on the other side of the spectrum have reasonable points to make, but the fact is that those points aren't true. The opposing side is mislead, but with a little guidance, they will discover, that global warming is out of the hands of human beings. ...read more.

  1. The Long Term Effects of Volcanic Eruptions

    However since the top of the volcano is now gone, there is less weight preventing the magma from erupting. This means that the eruptions will occur after smaller amounts of pressure have built up. Thus, the subsequent eruptions of Mount St Helen's should not be as damaging or devastating.

    Due to the continuous shifts in temperature, certain species are being forced to migrate sooner in the season, or travel to higher or lower elevations to accommodate their specific needs.

    When those icebergs have melted, they will usually refreeze in the night, but now the weather is getting warmer, they cannot, and they are permanently melted.

    The permafrost in much of the arctic is thawed. Rain is heavier in most of the Northern Hemisphere and in the tropics, even while other areas are having terrible droughts. Plant and animal ranges are moving towards the poles, as warm areas expand.

  1. An Essay Upon Global Warming

    Water evaporates when heated, and in particular the sun evaporates a great deal of water. The water vapour, which is less dense than air, will rise and form clouds. Much of the EMR emitted by the sun can penetrate the earth's atmosphere because the sun emits a great deal of light, and the atmosphere is fairly transparent at all stages.

  2. Earthquakes and volcanoes research

    Hotspots are not usually located on the ridges of tectonic plates, but above mantle plumes, where the convection of Earth's mantle creates a column of hot material that rises until it reaches the crust, which tends to be thinner than in other areas of the Earth.
