Global Warming

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. Is Global warming Natural or Man-made?

    There has been a variation of temperature over millions of year's history. His solution was to reduce human effects through emissions. He also said to not spend the national budget trying to stop or reverse the natural process. On both sides of the argument, the data is misintertpresnted or misused.

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

    One such event is the end of the ice-age. With that millions of species became extinct. In this period levels of greenhouse gases rose significantly and the temperature rose. Volcanic eruptions spew out tones of carbon dioxide which go up into the atmosphere.

    Therefore, the similar correlations between the graphs suggest a relationship between these two factors. If we examine the graphs closely, we observe a large increase in the world's temperature in 2000, and also a considerably big increase in the concentration of CO2.

  2. Human Impact On the Environment

    Cars are constantly adding more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The more carbon dioxide the higher the surface air temperature and the more decrease in thickness of ice. These are the causes of global warming. Thickness of Ice in Areas of the Arctic Sea This graph shows the ice thickness

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

    * Cost: Nuclear plants are very expensive to run. I'm not an economist, but I believe nuclear plants are, like most other things, cheaper in bulk. Most of the cost comes from the initial building of the plant; the running costs are comparatively low.

    Pollution and Global Warming report.

    The removal of trees and deforestation is also thought to increase the greenhouse effect. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. When they are removed, less carbon dioxide is absorbed, more is present in the atmosphere, and the greenhouse effect worsens.

  1. Should the UK build more Nuclear Power Stations?

    In a reactor working properly, one neutron ejected from each fission causes another to occur. This process of capturing said neutron and splitting happens extremely quickly and an incredible amount of energy is released in the form of heat and gamma radiation when a single atom splits.

  2. Are Humans causing global warming?

    Our actions are having a significant impact on the composition of our atmosphere.? These pieces of evidence were taken from www.scepticalscience.com This article shows that over the last 200 years c02 levels have increased dramatically, this was caused by the overuse of resources from humans.
