Warming Globally

Global warming is the term used to describe a gradual increase in the average temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere and its oceans, a change that is believed to be permanently changing the Earth’s climate (Live Science.com ). Many people do not believe that global warming is real. Many believe but don’t think it has any effect 0n them. A scientific news website ( TheHansIndia) , stated that seven in ten Americans believe that global warming is happening, but less than half think that it effects them personally.

John Cook, a research fellow at the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland in Australia; and 10 other scientists who blog under the collective name of Skeptical Science. The scientists examined 4,014 abstracts on climate change and found 97.2 percent of the papers assumed humans play a role in global warming (ClimateWire, May 16, 2013).

The 97% figure was often used by the Obama administration to bolster its case for phasing out fossil fuels, and President Barack Obama himself used the figure to undercut his critics.

The increased volumes of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases released by the burning of fossil fuels, land clearing, agriculture, and other human activities, are believed to be the primary sources of the global warming that has occurred over the past 50 years. We probably are responsible for global warming. That should be the argument. But to argue about it’s existence itself would be ridiculous. At this point any proof of global warming or climate can be proved by looking at a weather report, or simply going outside..
