Transcript of Global Warming prezi

The new debate on global warming is an issue that comes up on a day to day basis. Is Global Warming caused by Humans or by Nature? Imagine the worlds oceans rising so dramatically that it covers our coastal city's, and are small islands. And in an extreme case a planet that grows to hot for humans survival, thus making all living things on earth extinct. Natural Causes Human Causes The natural causes are very misunderstood we have just started to keep data records of the earths weather and temperature patterns over the last 100 years or so. Amy Witherbee a climatologist, argues this point in her article, “Over Reacting To Climate Change.” She states that,“We are dealing with a planet that is more than four billion years old and is in a constant state of dramatic, often unimaginable, change.” She then goes on to state that, “The last 30 years of scientific work on global weather patterns and climate shifts is not the culmination of a mature science, but the first infant steps into a new and basically unknown territory.” Some of the instrument's and models that scientists use have a large margin of error.
Currently humans are pumping greens houses gasses into the earths atmosphere, but this not the first time in history that we have seen these high amounts of gasses put in the atmosphere.
Pollution Population Pollution is caused when we burn fossil fuels and/or any other organic material. Burning these pollutants produces CO2 emissions, water vapor and methane, which gets released into the atmosphere creating a blanket that make radiation harder get out of the earths atmosphere. Our problems with pollution are made worse by a rising population and our demand for production,transportation, etc.. Destroying Forests Tied Together Great possiblity that we are going though a natural warming trend, and contributing as humans. Evidence Shrinking Glaciers Melting Ice Caps Rising sea/ocean levels Are we part of the trend or are we making it? With The lack of scientific records, accurate instruments/models, and the rising human made pollutants/population. It has made it even harder for us to take a single side on global warming.
