Polar Bears Warming Up to Climate Change

The way the earth’s climate has been changing is a very hot topic among scientists today.  Some believe it to be caused by the earth’s natural geothermal development and part of the normal change that the planet should be undergoing. Others contradict these claims by saying that man’s own inventions and improper use of fossil… View Article

The Impact Of Global Climate Change On The U.S Market

 “In the history of science, no subject has been as meticulously reviewed and debated as global warming” (Weart, Spencer cited in Doughton, Sandi 2005). Yes, it is true that climate change, commonly referred to in literatures as Global Warming has grown from an environmental issue, to moral and ethical one. Today, with the debate over… View Article

The Role of Human Activities in Causing Climate Change

To begin with, climate change is a tangible problem and its existence can no longer be denied. It would be self-deception to believe that humans had nothing to do with it. Human activities along with natural influences continuously alter the climate of the Earth. However, the fact that near-surface temperature has rapidly increased on the… View Article

Climate change as environmental challenge

Climate change is the most imperative environmental challenge facing the planet. Due to intensified reliance on fossil fuels for energy, greenhouse gases increase in the atmosphere and warms the Earth warts and all evident from the increasing ocean temperatures, widespread melting of snow and ice and rising sea levels (http://www.pewtrusts.org). The warming observed in the… View Article

Trees Are Not The Answer To Climate Change

In Trees Are Not The Answer To Climate Change, the Environmental News Network notes that the results of a 20-year analysis of data from 30 monitoring stations located in northern regions ranging from Canada to Europe, Alaska to Siberia indicate that the ability of trees to absorb carbon dioxide is being hindered by global warming….

Climate Change

Climate change is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods ranging from decades to millions of years. It may be a change in average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change is caused by… View Article

Estimates Of Future Sea-Level Rise

The effects of global climate change have been strongly associated with the melting of glaciers and ice sheets, which in turn, cause a rise in the global sea level. However, there is a need to provide a quantitative description of the extent of increase in the sea level, in order to be more scientifically credible…. View Article

Global Warming Affects Biodiversity

There has always been a link between climate change and biodiversity. As the climate changes, the animals in the affected areas have to either adjust or leave. Although climate changes have been occurring throughout history, the rapid climate changes of today are resulting in species not being able to adapt quickly enough and undergoing species… View Article

Comparative Commentary on Global Warming

“Taking action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions” (“Text A”), an international newspaper advertisement from Exxon Mobil and “An Agenda for Climate Action” (Text B”), a speech by Eileen Claussen, the President of Pew Center on Global Climate Change were both written in 2006 with the focus on global warming. The author in both commentaries strives… View Article

Climate Change (Class Project)

Let’s first begin with “what is climate change?” – it is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods of decades to millions of years [1]. Climate change is caused by several factors [2]: * Internal forcing mechanism (Natural processes of the climate system itself) * Ocean variability *… View Article

Global Climate Change And The Kyoto Protocol

Pakistan has the fifth largest population country worldwide contributes only 0. 4% of world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Regardless of its low contribution, global climate change in Pakistan has resulted in irreversible destruction with remarkable environmental, social and economic effects including natural ecosystems and forest resources of the country. Kyoto protocol framework convention on global climate… View Article

Climate Change Affect Plants

Historical climate change has had a profound effect on current biogeography, so we can expect our ongoing and rapid climate change, to have as great an effect. Climate change has important implications for nearly every aspect of life on Earth, and effects are already being felt. * Temperatureeffects–average, minimum or maximum can be important determinants… View Article

Global Warming Challenge

One of the greatest challenges earth is facing is Global Warming. The global warming hypothesis orginated in 1896 when Svante Arrhenius, a Swedish chemist, developed the theory that carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels would cause global temperatures to rise by trapping excess heat in the earth’s atmosphere. The term “Global Warming”… View Article

Climate Change and Tropical Biodiversity

In this review article, Brodie et al. expose a different approach to looking at the effects of global climate change on tropical biodiversity. An abundant amount of literature does, in fact, address the direct effects of climate change on biodiversity in the tropics. Brodie et al. argue, however, that while these efforts are extremely important… View Article
