Problem of global warmingThe problem of global warming, an increase in the average temperature on Earth, is getting worse. The Earth has warmed 0.3 to 0.6 degrees Celsius since the late 1800s. Scientists believe that the cause is the greenhouse effect, the process of trapping heat in the Earth s atmosphere because of the presence of large amounts of carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, methane, and nitrogen oxides. Less oxygen is being produced and cleaning the atmosphere allowing more

How Global Warming Relates to the Industrial Revolution Global Warming relates back to the Industrial Revolution in many ways. During the Industrial Revolution many new inventions were made that would make life easier for people back then and also in the future. One of the inventions was the steam engine which later lead to the combustion engine that is put in cars, boats, and trains. Global Warming ties in with my subject of Heat Sources because for the steam engine coal was used to produce

Q. Discuss some issue of personal, local, or international concern and its importance to you. Through out my high school year I have researched on many issues and all of the issues are important to me. All of the issues are important to me because in a way all of the problems are connected to each other and one problem leads to another. Out of all the issues I have researched on, the issues that concerns me the most are: Global Warming, Deforestation, Nuclear Waste, and Pollution. T

The Simple Facts About Global Warming It's a cool place and they say it gets colder. You re bundled up now but wait 'til you get older. But the meteor men beg to differ Judging by the hole in the satellite picture. The ice we skate is getting pretty thin. The waters getting warm so you might as well swim my worlds on fire how about yours that is the way I like it and I never get bored. Hey now you're an All Star get your game on, go play. In the song All-Star by Smash mouth we see that Glo

Global Warming"We have an obligation to weigh the risks of inaction against the cost of action. In that regard, global warming is no different than any other problem. But global warming is novel in one respect. It brings with it the possibility of global disaster, and we have only one Earth to experiment on."--Michael Oppenheimer, Senior Scientist of the Environmental Defense FundThe glass panes of a greenhouse and the Earth's atmosphere are both transparent to sunlight-they let in the

Global Warming The earth's average temperature stays fairly much the same from year to year. It gets very cold in the winter and very hot in the summer. Although some years may be a little hotter than normal, it may be a little cooler where others live. Consequently, when you look at the average temperature everywhere on the earth for a whole year, there is very little change. The current average global temperature is about 57 degrees Fahrenheit (14 degrees C). If there is a rise in

Global Warming I have chosen to speak about Global warming because it is a major scientific issue in the media. Problems facing the environment today are vast and diverse. Destruction of the world's rain forests, the depletion of the ozone layer, air pollution, water pollution, chemical pollution and global warming are just some of the problems that will reach dangerous proportions in the coming decades. The three aspects of global warming I will discuss are: What is global warming? What

Global Warming Global warming is a huge environmental and economic challenge that we are facing in the 21st century. Global warming is also commonly referred to as the greenhouse effect. Global warming can affect entire ecosystems and climates, which in turn affect the way in which people live. We in our lifetimes will not be around to see the major outcome of global warming; however, it is still a major concern. It has come to be known that the major increase in temperature over the last

The increase in the population of the world may be affecting us in more ways than previously thought. The usage of fossil fuels increases as the population increases. When a baby is born the immediate need for fossil fuels are increased. One example of this is the immediate need for fuel used to heat the water for the baby’s bottles, bath, and the water required to wash its clothes. This newborn may reach adulthood and begin to drive, yet another increase in fossil fuels. The incr

Global Warming Global Warming, aside from pollution is one of scientists biggest concerns. Global Warming is caused by the Greenhouse effect. There are 4 steps in the Greenhouse effect. 1-Sunlight radiates from the sun, through space, to EarthÆs atmosphere. 2- The sunlight enters the atmosphere and hits Earth. Some of it turns into heat energy in the form of infrared light. The heat gets absorbed by surrounding air and land, which in turn makes it warm. 3- Infrared rays, that are rem
