Is Global Warming Real?

Global warming is a biggest issue facing the world right now. It has been debated by scientists all over the world, and used by world leaders as a political tool. It’s effects on animals and on agriculture are indeed frightening, and the effects on the human population are even scarier.’

Global warming is the rising average temperature of the atmosphere near the earth's surface. This increase of the temperature may cause naturally within the earth's atmosphere or by human influences. In common usage, it refers to the warming as a result of increased releases of greenhouse gases due to human activities.

There is no universal definition for global warming. There is only a common understanding of what the term references.

‘It is the world's poorest people who are hardest hit by devastating droughts, floods and other extreme weather events. This is a massive injustice - climate change is caused by the world's richest countries.’

Global Warming causes are divided into two groups, natural and man-made causes. The natural causes are created by nature, such as: 1) Large volcanic eruptions ash acts as a shield to solar radiation and causes a cooling trend in the atmosphere; 2) Changes on earth’s solar radiation level have effect on the Earth’s climate; 3) The Earth slightly wobbles as it rotates around the Sun, as a result alternatively exposing the northern and southern latitudes to more and less solar radiation.

The most damage is caused by the human race and pollution is one of the biggest problems. They are: 1) Carbon dioxide emissions from power plants burning coal, natural gas or petroleum (oil) to produce electricity; 2) Carbon dioxide emissions from burning gasoline and diesel fuel for transportation; 3) Methane emissions from animals, agriculture such as rice paddies, and from Arctic sea beds; 4) Deforestation, especially tropical forests for wood, pulp, and farmland. This will result in more CO2, and enhanced greenhouse gases; 5) Increase in usage of chemical fertilizers on croplands.
