Global warming is the process in which the Earth’s temperature starts increasing. This happens because industry, fossil fuels, agricultural processes caused by human, natural, and other gas emissions, this factors increase greenhouse gases, greenhouse gases are made up of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide. The greenhouse gases stay in the atmosphere and prevent the suns warming rays to leave the Earth. So the sun’s warming rays stay inside the Earth increasing its average temperature. Global warming isn’t the end of the world, it’s just a natural process in which the Earth cleans or rinse organisms.
Now a days the Automobiles, heat from homes and businesses, and factories are responsible for about 80% of today's carbon dioxide…show more content…
Lastly many bodies of water become polluted thanks to all the gasses in the atmosphere that mix with the clouds and fall as acid rain polluting rivers, and lakes and killing many animals. All of theses factors change our daily life and can ruin whole species, and all of this is because of temperature changes.
Many scientific methods of controlling or lowering the Earth’s temperature are being researched; these can also be called geoengineering. Geoengineering is a method in which scientists can change the levels of greenhouse gases directly or indirectly. Also there could be methods that prevent greenhouse gasses to be emitted. There have never been any geoengineering solutions done on a global scale since it has to be almost proof less. But there have been some ideas that are being use on a small scale like the iron fertilization; this is a process in which iron is injected into the oceans to speed up the reproduction of plankton which breath carbon dioxide and emit oxygen, this is one solution that seems to have the least side effects thanks to the reason I just presented and also due to that plankton are the base of many marine animals food chain. So this method is being widely researched to see if it can be done on a global scale. Not only is lowering the levels of gases in the air important, but also lowering the level of gases we emit, and there have been many scientific breakthroughs like solar energy or cars that run
The story of global warming is a contentions and polarizing subject, basically dividing the people of the world into two camps, those who believe the story of global warming, and those who do not. In fact the dispute seems much like a dispute between two different religions, which is strange because the underlying story is supposed to be a scientific one.
Anyway, the subject is a contentions one, and for that reason the main thing I'd be worried about, is how to write the essay without offending the teacher I knew would be grading it.
I mean the goal here is not to write something so profound that it's the final word on the global warming. The goal is to finish the essay, and get a good grade on it.
I think I'd start with with one or two sentences defining the subject of global warming itself, and then an admission that this subject is a contentious subject. I mean I'd do this just as a strategy for deflecting criticism, or at least to demonstrate awareness of the other point of view.
Actually, given the choice of what to write about for the subject of the essay, I could just go about the subject of why the subject is so contentions. In fact, that way I could just sort of sidestep the whole debate, by simply writing about the debate itself.
