Introduction

Global Warming Good Morning, Global warming, or climate change, is a subject that shows no sign of cooling down so I believe that if we all work together we can prevent global warming and the green house effect. You are all very intelligent enough to understand that if we don't react right now, the sea levels will start to rise, some plants and animals will face extinction and there will be a large scale of food and water shortage. Do you want to live in a world like this? The first cause of global warming is that the temperatures are rising. Over the last century, on the average the world's temperature has risen by approximately 0.6�C. And it is predicted that the global average temperatures will rise by 1.4�C and 5.8�C by 2100. This doesn't mean that the weather will be nice and nifty but, it means that the weather will be deadly and dangerous. Strong hurricanes, droughts, heat waves, wildfires, and other natural disasters have also taken part to climate change suggest some experts. ...read more.

Middle

This will affect the wildlife that lives there, like polar bears; they are already suffering from sea ice loss. Scientists for the first time have recognized multiple deaths of polar bears off Alaska; they infer that polar bears might have drowned after swimming long distances in the ocean, in the middle of the melting of the arctic ice. So it is predicted that expanded sea water combined with the extra water released from melting glaciers and the ice caps will cause 15-95cm rise in sea levels by 2100. On top of that already 10-25cm has already been experienced. If we continue to let out these CO2 emissions they will damage the environment severely. One way of tackling global warming is to recycle. Recycling is one of the best ways for you to have a positive impact on the world in which we live in. Did you know that one recycled tin can would save enough energy to power a television for three hours or up to 60% of the rubbish that ends up in the dustbin could be recycled? ...read more.

Conclusion

The WWF (World Wildlife Fund) are implying that Earth's population will be forced to colonise two planets within 50 years if natural resources continue to be exploited at the current rate otherwise the earth will expire, according to their report on Global Warming. To conclude, Global warming however is not inevitable, so we can all work together and cooperate to help and combat global warming so we can change it or even to put a stop to it. But, our laziness is not a good enough reason to justify it. So, we need to remember to recycle; we can walk or cycle to a near distance place than driving. Also, we should replace normal house bulbs with energy efficient bulbs to protect the environment and we should stop leaving our appliances on standby instead we should just turn them off. You can also sign a petition by the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) to take action against global warming. So remember if we all work together, we can prevent global warming and the green house effect. REMEMBER TO GO GREEN THIS WINTER. It has been nice taking to you; you have been a great audience.

  1. Should the UK build more Nuclear Power Stations?

    nuclear power plants is a hazard to human health, particularly where children are concerned (26 April, p 18). For over 20 years government scientists have led the public to believe that clusters of leukaemia around power stations were inexplicable, just coincidence, or perhaps a virus.

    Pollution and Global Warming report.

    Plastic packaging takes 400 years to degrade. Glass takes so long to degrade that we don't know the time. 12% of oil spills goes in the ocean. Oil cannot dissolve in water and forms a thick sludge in the water. This suffocates fish, gets caught in the feathers of marine birds stopping them from flying and blocks light from plants.

  1. Are humans to blame for Global warming or is it a natural phenomenon? ...

    Because of global warming, the animal's habitat would increase in temperature. Even a temperature increase of 2 degrees Celsius could result in the animal dying. For example in rivers, this increase in temperature could mean that some of the marine life such as the fishes could die.

  2. A report on Climate Change

    Another notable result is the year of 2000, where the temperature increase is of a larger size than the previous recordings. This is probably due to the rapid spread of industrialization and increased CO2 emissions. One cannot deny the relationship between these two graphs; as CO2 concentrations increase, the temperature globally increases.

  1. Human Impact On the Environment

    Whereas in the year 2000 the global concentration was 370 parts per million, this shows that in 80 years the concentration increased by 70 parts per million. Similarly in graph 1 the surface air temperature was 0�C in 1920 whereas in 2000 it was 0.7�C.

  2. Should the UK government continue to invest in Nuclear power?

    * Terrorism: While the chances of a modern reactor exploding like Chernobyl are near zero, it is quite possible for intervention to have quite horrific results. Nuclear plants would be very tempting targets to anyone wanting to disrupt the power supply and devastate an entire region in one foul swoop.

  1. Anthropogenic Global Warming: Fact or Fiction?

    The planets Mars and, particularly, Venus also have greenhouse effects. Diagram illustrating the process of the greenhouse effect http://staffwww.fullcoll.edu/tmorris/an_inconvenient_truth/greenhouse_effect.jpg http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/e0/Greenhouse_Gas_by_Sector.png Arguments Against Anthropogenic Global Warming Global Warming and the Oceans One of the foremost arguments against anthropogenic global warming is that if global temperatures rise/fall then, after a period of years, the carbon dioxide levels rise/fall accordingly.

  2. Are Humans causing global warming?

    The second piece says that ?To allow humans to eat drink and basically do anything, they need to use fossil fuels, ignoring the alternative supplies.? The sentence says similar facts to the previous piece, demonstrating that humans only use what is easiest and does the job best.
