Global Warming Timeline and Projections Essay

5185 words - 21 pages effect from pre-industrial times to 1950, but a cooling effect since. In 2006, Peter Foukal and colleagues found no net increase of solar brightness over the last 1,000 years. Solar cycles led to a small increase of 0.07 percent in brightness over the last 30 years. This effect is too small to contribute significantly to global warming. One paper by Mike Lockwood and Claus Fröhlich found no relation between global warming and solar radiation since

Debunking the Global Warming Theory Essay

781 words - 4 pages . Additionally, the climate has not warmed in the last eight years despite the high levels of CO2 in the atmosphere. There also exists a discrepancy between the observed and predicted patterns of warming, and this indicates that it is insignificant to attribute current temperatures to global warming. Geological records also show that there has been a persistent warming and cooling cycle over a 1500-year period for more than a million years. Therefore

Global Warming

1655 words - 7 pages . Earth has indeed experienced warming and cooling cycles roughly every hundred thousand years due to these orbital shifts, but such changes have occurred over the span of several centuries. Today's changes have taken place over the past hundred years or less” (2007, National Geographic). People who oppose the reality of global warming believe that science hasn’t reached the stage where they are able to provide people with solid answers to all

With future model projections, one thing scientists all agree on is that the global temperature is not expected to start cooling anytime soon. In fact, temperatures are expected to rise between 2 to 5 degrees Celsius by the year 2060 (Digby, 2007) and the variation in temperature between highs and lows during the will decrease (Michaels et


3788 words - 16 pages large effect on climate through the indirect effect. Global dimming, a gradual reduction in the amount of global direct irradiance at the Earth's surface, has partially counteracted global warming from 1960 to the present.[54] The main cause of this dimming is aerosols produced by volcanoes and pollutants. These aerosols exert a cooling effect by increasing the reflection of incoming sunlight. The effects of the products of fossil fuel

The Earth's Last Straw

1726 words - 7 pages Many people believe that Global Warming is a topic that has been used to “scare” the public into living greener. Although there is nothing wrong with wanting people to use less energy and put off less pollution, creating a worldwide problem to benefit your own cause is wrong. The most respected scientific bodies have stated unequivocally that global warming is occurring, and people are causing it. The only real debate is about how fast warming

1486 words - 6 pages emissions in these five years. On an absolute basis, we generated 2% more CO2 emissions in 2006 over our 2002 levels, while our production increased by double digits. In addition, we offset the environmental impact of 100% of these emissions through the purchase of “carbon offsets” from NativeEnergy. • We began a focused effort in 2006 to put our CO2 emissions in a broader perspective by calculating a new metric known as Ben & Jerry’s Global

Global Waming

923 words - 4 pages fact that many Scientists throughout the 60’s and 70’s actually believed that there was a massive global cooling, not warming. Those same scientists also pointed to greenhouse gasses and emissions as the major cause. Science Digest (February 1973) reported that "the world's climatologists are agreed" that we must "prepare for the next ice age." While there is the debate over the exact causes of this warming there is also another disagreement

Climate Change Are You for or Against It

613 words - 3 pages balance. Changing the atmospheric abundance or properties of these gases and particles can lead to a warming or cooling of the climate system. Since the start of the industrial era (about 1750), the overall effect of human activities on climate has been a warming influence. The human impact on climate during this era greatly exceeds that due to known changes in natural processes, such as solar changes and volcanic eruptions.” IPCC, 2007: Climate

Global Warming Debate

876 words - 4 pages understanding of the greenhouse effect and global warming is not reliant on modern climate models and nor is it a modern preoccupation. Nor is it correct to claim that in the 1970s climate scientists were predicting global cooling - Sawyer's paper accurately predicted exactly the opposite, based on the best science available. Other scientific papers around that time also drew attention to the warming expected from the anthropogenic increases in greenhouse gas emissions.

Global Warming Paper 1

671 words - 3 pages Introduction: The phrase global warming refers to the documented historical warming of the Earth's surface based upon worldwide temperature records that have been maintained by humans since the 1880s. The term global warming is often used synonymously with the term climate change, but the two terms have distinct meanings. Global warming is the combined result of anthropogenic (human-caused) emissions of greenhouse gases and changes in solar
