Who’s Fault Is It?

Who is really causing global warming? Do you know? Because I certainly don’t. There are some people that believe that we are causing global warming just by being humans and breathing out CO2 into the air. There are other people that say that our cars and manufacturing companies are causing global warming by sending all the chemicals into the air (That is the idea that I believe the most). And there are other people that believe that global warming is just because of the earth itself and global warming is not man made. Last but not least people believe that there is no such thing as global warming that people are over reacting about nothing and worrying to much about it. All of these could possible be true but there are many opinions and beliefs about each one.

The first belief that I mentioned is interesting because I think that if we ourselves by just breathing were causing global warming that God would not let that happen, I don’t believe that God would make the earth for we humans to destroy it by living. I know you may not believe in God or believe that God created the world, but thats another topic that we won’t get into. The second idea I mentioned is the most popular belief because there is the most research on it, it is the most advertised, and the most talked about. This belief is the most popular about because we do put all of those fumes and gases in the air and there is no denying it. The next idea is believable but not the most reliable, back to the point about God I do not think that he would let his creation destroy itself slowly but surely. The last one is very interesting because after all these ideas and solutions some people have just given up, or never started believing in global warming in the first place.

All of these ideas are interesting so lets hear your input…

    Grant, your post is short and simple. On some of the points I wish you elaborated more. I like how you added the poll so that everyone can see how our small group of bloggers feels about global warming.

    First of all I would like to say that your post was very informative. I especially like how you focused on 4 points and gave info on each one. You poll was also helpful in letting us know how our fellow bloggers reacted to your post. However, I would like to point out a few things I found confusing in your post. You first stated that one theory for global warming was the exhalation of carbon dioxide into the air. While I may be wrong about this, the carbon dioxide we inhale/exhale is already part of the environment. We take it in and put it back a few seconds later. It’s like taking a glass of water and taking two milliliters out. If you put the two milliliters back into the cup of water, you haven’t added to the amount of water into the cup. The only way to add carbon dioxide to the atmosphere is to take carbon dioxide that has not been affecting the environment at all (coal, natural gas, oil), and to release the carbon within it into the atmosphere (burning fossil fuels). To read more on this subject, please go to: http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/explainer/2009/08/7_billion_carbon_sinks.html.

    Another point you brought up is the argument of whether the burning of fossil fuels brings a rise to carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. While you are correct on this point, you may be a little off on wether there is any debate on it. The fact of the matter is that there is controversy over how much we effect the environment with our industrialism. There are people who believe we are too small and insignificant to change a planet that has been around for 4.54 BILLION years. The final point I would like to talk to you about is the final point you made about how people don’t believe that global warming is occurring. This is false as statistics show that global warming has been occurring. There is a debate over wether or not it is anthropogenic.

    But overall you had a really informative post. Awesome job!

    I really liked how you included the reader in what you were talking about and we had to think instead of just reading what you think. I liked the pole at the end and I liked how you put everything you knew on the line and you were asking for more opinions. Great post!!
