Global Warming and Natural Disasters

Global warming has been perceived to increase flooding effect across the continent. The previous research analyzed the causes of global warming, and its cause, whether by human activities or natural occurrence. The research failed to address whether global warming increased the natural disasters in the society. This research will enable the government institutions to enact […]

An analysis of the global warming phenomenon based on the first law of thermodynamics.

Global warming is among most discussed topics globally. According to the Oracle Think Quest, global warming is caused by the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect tries to explain that gases such as carbon dioxide trap energy from the sun. As a result, the earth’s atmosphere behaves like a closed system. However, opponents of this notion […]

Global Warming

Global warming is the average increase in the atmospheric temperature caused by natural and human causes. It results from increased greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere (IPCC, 2006). Emission in the atmosphere can be reduced by a decrease of fossil fuel consumption. In addition, reduction in fossil fuel consumption leads to a reduction of greenhouse […]

The Role of the Arctic in Increasing the Effect of Global Warming

Introduction The global climate is changing rapidly especially in the Arctic. Climatic changes in the Arctic are characterized by melting permafrost, receding glaciers, and disappearing sea ice (Singh 2008). Research scientists have revealed that these changes affect both local communities and the world because they are contributing factors towards increasing the effects of global warming. […]

There has been consensus that climate change […]

What Is The Scientific Consensus On The Rate Of Global Warming And Its Causes?

The world is undergoing various transformations directly and indirectly affecting its inhabitants. One characteristic of all living things is irritability. Irritability refers to the ability of living things to react to the environment as a result of change in natural or manmade stimuli. This means that living things are very cautious of the environments within […]

Global Warming and Increase of Global Temperature

Introduction Global warming refers to the rise in the normal temperature of the earth’s near-surface atmosphere and water bodies ever since the middle of the twentieth century and its predictable continuation. As reported by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC, in the year 2007, the universal surface temperature rose by 0.74 to 0.180C for […]

Global Warming Effects on the Cayman Islands

Introduction Global warming refers to a state in which earth’s and ocean surface experiences increase in temperature. The effects of global warming are the social and ecological changes because of increment of global temperature (Gore, 148). These climatic changes are be apparent with the present recording of rise of sea level, increase in temperature and […]

Global Warming in Canada

Overview of Global Warming Global warming is defined as the rise in the average temperature of the earth’s surface as a result of natural changes in climatic patterns. It is closely related to increased green house effect which is described as an increase in the concentration of green house gases in the atmosphere. The increase […]

Is Global Warming Natural or Man-made?

Introduction There is little doubt that our earth is undergoing a gradual increase in temperature. Baffling statistics by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC) indicate that the earth’s temperature has risen by roughly 0.6 degrees Celsius, the highest since the mid 1800s, further reports indicate that thesix year periog between1997 and 2003 were the […]

Concepts of Global Warming

Introduction Life sustenance and the survival of living organisms primarily depend on the prevailing environmental conditions. On the other hand, it is important to note that, these prevailing environmental factors have varying impacts on global economic, social, and political systems. This is because; the backbone of most global economies is agriculture and industrialization, factors that […]

Global warming – The biggest threat in 21st century

Introduction According to Solomon (2008) “global warming has become a question for citizens and not only for scientists (p.1).” “Global warming has implications on our quality of life-it affects our nutrition, and brings about adverse changes in natural phenomena such as increased severity of tropical storms, hurricanes and so on” (Solomon, 2008, p.1). Tackling it […]

Climate Change, Coming Home: Global warming’s effects on populations

The climate change has brought about many changes that humanity was not ready for, including a shifting pattern of crop’s growth and emergence of diseases. The Earth’s population must get ready to a new era that will require a more efficient use of energy and a better conservation of people’s health. The article “Climate Change, […]

Climate Change: The Complex Issue of Global Warming

Introduction Global warming has emerged as one of the most important and complex global issues facing the international community. This phenomenon has led to climate change that has caused many negative impacts to the environment. The international community has come to a realization that it must pay greater attention to this problem. This paper will […]

Can a Switch to Renewable Energy Sources help combat Global Warming?

Introduction Global warming has emerged as one of the most important problems facing the international community in the 21st century. For decades, human beings engaged in intensive industrial activity will little consideration for the environmental consequences of his actions. These activities have led to changes in the climate due to the accumulation of greenhouse gases […]

Global Warming: Fact or Fiction

Executive Summary Global warming poses a unique challenge to world major economies including US. Yet, current mechanisms adopted by national governments specifically United States are insufficient to prepare for the negative impacts caused by this disaster. According to (Bily, 2006), global warming is the average persistent increase in the atmospheric temperature near the earth’s surface […]

Global Warming Solutions

Arguments for Global Warming Global warming has been thought as a theory that global average temperatures have been rising and will continue to rise as a result of mankind activities. As an effect, this paper critically discusses the argument put forward by the believers & the argument put forward by non- believers of global warming. […]

Effects of global warming on human health, human welfare and human settlements

Global warming is the gradual increase in earth’s surface temperature. The increased temperature leads to an increased melting of snow and ice. The resultant of the melting is an increased global sea level. It is estimated that between 1906 and 2005, earth’s surface temperatures raised by 0.74 ± 0.18 °C (Ernesto 8-23). In 1998, Kyoto protocol was developed […]

Baffling statistics by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC) indicate that the earth’s temperature has risen by roughly 0.6 degrees Celsius, the highest since the mid 1800s, further reports indicate that the duration from 1997-2003 […]

Causes of Global warming

Thesis Global warming is the increase in the earth’s atmospheric temperatures due to a corresponding increase in the emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs), for example carbon dioxide (CO2) and chlorofluorocarbons, which creates a ‘greenhouse’ effect: the retention of solar energy in the atmosphere due to the prevention of its escape by the ‘ceiling’ created by […]

A World without Ice: Effects of Global Warming on Polar Regions

Introduction When one hears the term “Global Warming”, different ideas come to mind. Many people associate global warming with high temperatures, industrial revolution, factories, and pollution. Global warming is affecting all regions and areas that are parts of this earth. It makes them warmer and warmer by time (Bo et al., 2009). What happens to […]

A Sustainability Plan for the Mitigation Strategies and Solutions for Global Warming

Global Warming (GW) is a term that connotes elevated temperatures of the globe at closer planes. This originates from the sun’s heat enclosed within the atmosphere. It is notable that such a warming process appears to be escalating. Probably, changes appear negligible to many societies, but they will augment with time. Apparently, the next decades […]
