Global Warming: What really is the cause of it?
When I first saw An Inconvenient Truth I was scared. I mean, who wouldn’t be if they heard Al Gore talking about how the world was becoming hotter and hotter and that if we didn’t stop putting so much CO2 into the air, then soon some of the world would be under water? Then we watched the movie The Great Global Warming Swindle and that movie, although very interesting, has made me less scared, but has not changed by views about the causes of global warming.
Even though they were saying that global warming was not human caused and that it is just part of a normal cycle, I still feel like you cannot ignore the fact that 97% of climate scientists believe global warming is human caused. I believe humans do release a lot of CO2 from our cars and factories and other things such as landfills, but I do not believe that we are the only cause of it. Like Austin said in the last post, oceans also contain a lot of CO2 and many other things in nature contribute the the greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere.
I also still believe that there is such a thing as global warming. The scientists in The Great Global Warming Swindle said that the temperature is always fluctuating and has been high before, but on the graphs they showed, the temperature in the present time was the highest it had ever been, even hotter than the medieval warming period. You cannot ignore this fact, even if you believe that there is no such thing as global warming. They say that global warming is a hoax, but you cannot ignore the facts. Temperatures are rising, and if they keep on rising as fast as they are, soon all the ice will melt and many countries will be flooded. In The Great Global Warming Swindle, they say that the ice has always melted and it is not surprising that it is melting now, but if you look at the statistics, you will learn that ice is melting much faster than it used to.
We need to start to do something about this, even if the CO2 is not all our fault. If we just sit back and ignore the fact that global warming is real, than soon the whole world will be in danger. I think that humans should start listening to the facts, because if they did, they would discover that we need get out there and make the world a better place for the generations of people to come.
