Do you believe there is global warming?
Topic: Research essays on global warming
July 17, 2019 / By Brett Question:
We have to write this essay in Science and Society class, and we have to pick a side, wether we believe human activity causes global warming or not.
Ive always thaught there is something wrong about this myth, but i lack evidence to support my idea.
I believe that humans are NOT affecting, and that human activity (ex CO2 emmisions) doesn't affect the climate.
My points to back this up still need some research, but they are: (and i might be completely wrong)
- Earths temperature has risen more noticably in the near past (1500's), then there was barely any Co2 emmisions, (as we started releasing co2 in the industrial revolution)
- The most of Earths Co2 doesnt come from human activity etc, but from volcanic eruptions. So this also might prove that its natural rather than human activity caused.
- The north ice caps have been melting all the time, never have stopped after the last ice age. (Part of Europe and Russia was under ice) and it melted away naturally, not from "global warming". Now it might be the end of this cycle, ice is almost gone. This also doesnt support that humans are actualy causing G.W. (global warming).
- Bigger forces, solar system cycles, out universe cycles etc. would affect the temperature on Earth, rather than Co2 emissions by humans.
I need other ideas, maybe more evidence on these. Maybe gw believers can explain me if im completely wrong.
Thank You, if you actually read all of it :)

I think that the evidence shows that warming is natural and warming causes a rise in CO2, not the other way around.
Let me know if these links help. I have more

1. I believe what you are referencing in the first point is what people refer to as the Medieval Warm Period. While it was largely believed in the 1990s and early 2000s that this period was warmer than current temperatures, this has recently been proved to be false. The majority of data collected at the time this hypothesis was posed was collected from proxy data in northern Europe. It is now known that this warming was a regional effect.
2. As for the volcano theory, humans emit 130 times more CO2 than volcanoes
3. To cover the 3rd point, technically the earth has been warming since the last ice age around 20,000 years ago. but this doesn't prove anything about human caused climate change. The rate of warming decreased sharply around 10,000 years.
4. It has been shown that solar radiation has a dramatic effect on the earths climate, but the recent warming cannot be linked to changes in solar activity.
-I hope this helps, there is plenty of good scientific data that supports anthropogenic climate change and hopefully you can do some research and realize the actual science behind this issue

Officials urged people to huddle at home and out of the way of emergency crews. Forecasters said the storm could be the biggest for the nation's capital in modern history.
A record 2 1/2 feet or more was predicted for Washington. As of early Saturday, 10 inches of snow was reported at the White House, while parts of Maryland and West Virginia were buried under more than 20 inches. Forecasters expected snowfall rates to increase, up to 2 inches per hour through Saturday morning.
Blizzard warnings were issued for the District of Columbia, Baltimore, parts of New Jersey and Delaware, and some areas west of the Chesapeake Bay.

Okay, we all know that "Global Warming" is caused by greenhouse gases, am I right? Right, so when people use things like aersol and CFC producing refridgerators, gases are put into our air that clog up our atmosphere. the sun's light is put into our atmosphere and cannot get out because of these gases blocking them.
Your question was whether to believe or not.
There are two ways of viewing this issue. Politically & Scientifically.
If you are looking from a political standpoint, it is all the fault of mankind and the statistics are blown waaaaay out of proportion. Courtesy of Mr. Al Gore.
If you are looking at it from a scientific standpoint, things are different. The facts prove that something IS going on. And that it IS the fault of mankind. Just that the amount of temperature increase is about half as much as politics want you to think.
My opinion? I believe in the Scientific side. Humans are to blame for the slow destruction of our earth, but not as much as politics wants us to think. Hope this helps!

There are actually a lot of things wrong with your points. However to learn that, it is better if you research the opposing side... In fact any good persuasive paper will intently study the opposing side of the argument to better their credibility. I have no doubt that if you did the research, especially with real scientific journals and research, you will find that your points are inaccurate, and you will either change the points, or change your opinion all together... I know this because I have done a lot of research on the subject, seen both sides, and have already filtered through your points...

Originally Answered: Why do global warming deniers.deny global warming?
Basically those who can see the global warming con is a phony economic scam designed to make lazy unproductive liberals filthy rich with little to no need for physical work are politically moderates or Conservatives. All liberals seem to drift naturally to job positions where truth and accuracy is not required and some rather elaborate fictions produce higher profits than average. So while moderates and conservatives tend to go to productive jobs in science, engineering or manufacturing the average liberal tends to go into teaching, sales, religion or politics where physical effort is minimal and they can use pre written materials rather than off the cuff speaking more intelligent people do.
Some scientific information revealing the truth about global warming, when it happened and what probably caused it. And as well how many years, centuries or millennia it might be before the world warms up again from the coming ice age.
Where the heat came from and why it was abnormally cold previously
