Natural causes of global warming articles
Global warming is a topic that people all over the world have very strong feelings about. Many tests and research have been done, and we now know more than ever about it.. As our technology increases, we have a better chance of understanding this strange thing that is happening to our planet. But is global warming a natural process or is it caused by humans? Could it be blamed on our naive knowledge of the planet and how delicate it really is, or could it just be that the planet goes through this process every few thousand years? Satellite images show that the sea around Antarctica has been rising in the past 20 years. Scientists have suggested that high amounts of atmospheric carbon dioxide (one of the greenhouse gases) is to blame for around 33 degrees of warming on Earth. Although, if there were no greenhouse gases, the Earth would be unlivable . The greenhouse effect is what happens when the energy from the sun is trapped by the Earth’s atmosphere. Carbon dioxide, water vapor, nitrous oxide, and methane are all gases in the atmosphere that help trap the energy emitted from the sun. Without all these gases, the Earth could sink to -2 degrees Fahrenheit.
There are many reasons that people think global warming could be caused by humans. For the last century, we have been destroying our natural resources. Newspaper headlines and magazine articles have many people convinced that global warming is anthropogenic, or human caused. “What you can say is, yes, carbon dioxide (in the atmosphere) is at levels higher than ever before, and carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, so it’s reasonable to say that there’s warming associated with the increase of carbon dioxide. But you can’t make the leap yet that all the cars in the world have led to what we’re observing in the thinning of the Greenland ice sheet.” said Dr. Waleed Abdalati, the co-author of the paper that proved that Greenland was shrinking. It is hard to distinguish what is human caused. “And so you have all these processed mixed together that have been going on for thousands of years, and you’re in the difficult position of trying to separate something very recent from the natural cycle without fully understanding what that natural cycle is.” Abdalati said. Recent studies have suggested that eating meat like domestic livestock can affect the planet in a big way. One of the easiest things you can do to help the planet is to cut down on your intake of meat. One calorie of animal protein needs ten times as much fossil fuel and carbon dioxide than one calorie of plant protein. Livestock also produces methane. The EPA reported...
