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. 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. The Long Term Effects of Volcanic Eruptions

    The reason the 1980 eruption was so massive was because the volcanic cone kept the magma from erupting. This caused a large amount of pressure to build up. Thus when the volcano finally erupted in 1980, the eruption was large.

    Also, certain species depend on specific plants or animals to survive and with the warmer temperatures, this food source may die off or disappear. For example, "Trees and plants bear fruit too late or too early, and the animals that depend on them can stave" (www.answerbag.com/articles/effect-of-global-warming-on-animals/40a09cb7-dd99-bf33-7cbb-a3fdab539b29).

    They are melting into water and making the sea levels rise. Although these ice caps are disappearing, this wouldn't cause the sea levels to raise more than a few millimetres. The real problem is that when the sun hits the water in the north or south pole, most of the radiated heat gets reflected of the icebergs.
