Global Warming Mission Plan a. Analysis of the Problem 1. History of the Problem Some scientist's have been concerned since 1896 about what might happen if there were 5.5 billion tons carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. In 1961 a British scientist did an experiment showing that the carbon in the air was absorbing some of the sun's radiation. Afterward a Swedish scientist, Suante Arrhenius, found out if the radiation of the sun was trapped in the carbon dioxide the temperature of the earth wo...

Global Warming
EFTHIMIOS MARIAKAKIS The greenhouse effect and global warming are issues that are talked about by geologists all the time. The greenhouse effect is a natural process that keeps the earth at temperatures that are livable. Energy from the sun warms the earth when its heat rays are absorbed by greenhouse gasses and become trapped in the atmosphere. Some of the most common greenhouse gasses are water vapor, carbon dioxide, and methane. If there were no greenhouse gasses, very few rays would be absor...

Global Warming
Global Warming The greenhouse effect, in environmental science, is a popular term for the effect that certain variable constituents of the Earth's lower atmosphere have on surface temperatures. It has been known since 1896 that Earth has been warmed by a blanket of gasses (This is called the “greenhouse effect.”). The gases--water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), and methane (CH4)--keep ground temperatures at a global average of about 15 degrees C (60 degrees F). Without them the aver...

Global Warming 2
Carbon dioxide plays a major part of impacting the Earth s climate. Carbon dioxide traps heat form the sun. This effect is considered global warming, which is often referred to as the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect traps solar heat, like a green house for plants, which causes the solar energy from being released. Global warming or the greenhouse effect is believed to have been causing our temperatures to rise. If global warming persists, many problems will begin to occur in the co...

Global Warming
In the last century, the earth’s surface temperature has increased 0.45-0.60 degrees celsius. Although some scientists believe global warming is not a problem, many scientists believe that global warming is a serious problem, and can not be ignored. Global warming, as the term implies, is the increasing temperature of earth. A factor that is believed to play a part in this is the greenhouse effect, which is the effect in which greenhouse gasses, such as carbon dioxide allow incoming solar ...

Global warming
In the article “Happiness Is a Warm Planet” it tries to explain and tell how Global Warming is a good thing. It says “mankind should benefit from and upward tick in the thermometer.” When in fact in today’s society it is proving to not be good. Under global warming, winter temperatures would rise the most and summer temperatures the least. It is said in this article that “more people die of the cold then of the heat; more die in the winter than the summer.” But the truth is th...

Global Warming Global Warming, aside from pollution is one of scientists biggest concerns. Global Warming is caused by the Greenhouse effect. There are 4 steps in the Greenhouse effect. 1-Sunlight radiates from the sun, through space, to earth’s atmosphere. 2- the sunlight enters the atmosphere and hits Earth. Some of it turns into heat energy in the form of infrared light. The heat gets absorbed by surrounding air and land, which in turn makes it warm. 3- Infrared rays, which are r...

Global Warming
Global warming is an increase in the earth's temperature due to fossil fuels, industry, and agricultural processes caused by human, natural, and other gas emissions. (Melissa Phillips). This results in an increased emission of greenhouse gases. (Caroline Quatman). Short-wave solar radiation sinks into the Earth's atmosphere and warms its surface; while longwave infrared radiation emitted by earth's surface is absorbed, and then re-emitted by trace gases. (Brent C. Willhoite) Climate changes oc...

Global Warming
Many people disagree on the issue concerning global warming. Some believe that human activities, various forms of polluting, are the main cause of global warming. Others think that not only have humans not affected the planet by any significant amount, but that not much global warming has even occurred. Many scientists think that pollution is the cause of global warming and the greenhouse effect. There is a lot of evidence to support this theory. In the United States alone, almost 15,000 pounds...

Global Warming
Global warming is the heating of the earth. This heating occurs because of the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is when carbon dioxide and other gases (methane and nitrous oxide) trap energy from the sun in our atmosphere. Most of the energy we receive from the sun is absorbed by the surface of the earth. Some of the energy is reflected and would normally exit our atmosphere; however, carbon dioxide absorbs this energy and it remains in our atmosphere. The more carbon dioxide in the...
