The Cause and Effect of Climate Change

Our Earth has been facing horrific events, such as global warming and climate change. Spoil alert: we only have one Earth!  The talk about climate change has been a topic for several years now. Occasionally it will be discussed in politics, educational systems, and many more places/events globally. Some people are believers that human behavior is to blame for the warming of the Earth due to our industrialized lifestyle, however, others believe it is the Earth’s natural system due …


Health Consequences of Climate Change Presented in Selected Article

Climate change includes both global warming driven by human emissions of greenhouse gases and the resulting large-scale shifts in weather patterns. Though there have been previous periods of climatic change, since the mid-20th century humans have had an unprecedented impact on Earth's climate system and caused change on a global scale. In the article Global Climate Change and Children’s Health it states that according to the World Health Organization “greater than 88% of exis…


Сlimate Сhange and Its Effects on Our World

Global warming is the long-term rise in the average temperature of the Earth's climate system. It is a major aspect of climate change and has been demonstrated by direct temperature measurements and by measurements of various effects of the warming.  Global warming and climate change are often used interchangeably. But, more accurately, global warming is the mainly human-caused increase in global surface temperatures and its projected continuation, while climate change includes both…


Climate Change Policy: Cap and Trade & Carbon Tax

This paper looks at the current Federal and state laws regarding climate change’s policy, the financial cost of the status quo, as well as a few policy alternatives that are commonly suggested to improve this policy’s outcomes.  This is an issue that is important because if it continues to worsen, it will affect everyone that lives on this planet in a variety of different ways. One of these ways is that global temperatures will continue to rise as they have been in the past …


Politics and Climate Change

When referring to climate change, this means the immense changes in (global) temperature and other shifts in climate over large periods of time. As humans we have realized that climate change has been happening for over hundreds of years. Many people try to deny the existence of climate change and many people who try to deny humans being the reason of climate change. For centuries the levels of carbon dioxide had been somewhat steady and never surpassed a certain amount. But currently the ca…


Climate Change and Climate Change Controversy

Climate change is the process by which Earth’s climate changes and it has been an ongoing issue for many years now.  The Earth's climate has been changing ever since it formed billions of years ago, so why then, is there concern for it now? Historically, Earth's climate has undergone changes through a variety of mechanisms such as changes in axial tilt, perturbations in its orbit, or dust produced by volcanoes or asteroid collisions blotting out the sun. Recently, however,…


How Climate Change is Negatively Affecting Arctic Ecosystems

The effects of climate change on arctic ecosystems have been a subject of research for half a century (Ivy, Diane J.)  Climate change affects different things in the arctic ecosystems like increasing carbon dioxide, glacial retreat, and permafrost thawing (Klimesová, Jitka.) All of these factors affect very important components of the arctic ecosystem. One of these components would be vegetation. Another component would be animal life. These two components are dependent on each o…


The Effects of Climate Change on Temperature Sex Determination of the Tuatara

Introduction Temperature sex determination and breeding in the Tuatara Why is Climate Change a Problem for the Tuatara? What Can Be Done to Survive Climate Change References Climate change is an ever-growing problem on earth. With carbon dioxide levels being at an all time high, increasing temperatures in both terrestrial and oceanic environments, and ocean acidification, virtually all animals, plants, and ecosystems on earth are suffering from the effects.  Introduction…


Environmental Change and its Demise influence on Us

The unstoppable force of life's most grounded shortcoming, Environmental Change. Gradually bringing earth down yet she attempts to retaliate.  The main thing she can depend on to support her, is us. However we are doing everything despite what might be expected. Devastating the trees, adding more synthetic substances to the ozone harming substances. Consuming petroleum derivatives, and each other easily overlooked detail. Devouring her, gradually. Environmental Change, otherwise …


Climate Change and Diseases

Several infectious diseases will worsen because of climate change; these diseases can be extremely harmful and even deadly to human beings. If time goes on and nothing is done to fix this evident problem the health of humans all around the world will start to consistently deteriorate. Climate change is causing existing diseases to affect a larger amount of people. Vector borne diseases, such as Malaria and the West Nile Virus, will affect more people because the warmer weather will allow the…


Climate Change and Sea Turtles

Climate change is a natural and gradual change in Earth’s climate. Climate change has many effects on earth with the most serious being global temperature rise, increasing ocean temperature, sea level rise, ocean acidification, severe storms and the declining of arctic sea ice.Rising Global TemperaturesGlobal land and ocean temperatures are rising. With a more drastic increase since around the 1970s. The increased rate of temperature change more recently is largely attributed to the incre…


What is Global Climate Change (Global Warming)

Global Climate change is the difference in the Planet’s global climate, or geographical climates over time. It recounts the condition of the atmosphere over time plates, that range from decades to millions of years. These changes can be produced by actions inside the Earth, and forces outside (meaning changes in sunlight intensity), or more recently, human activity. Prominent examples are Ice ages. Climate change is any notable long-term change in the anticipated patterns of average …


Climate Changes and its Global Impact

The Academy of Science in Australia defines climate change in part as a ‘change in the weather pattern over a long period of time.’ This definition is widely accepted but in the last few years, it is becoming a more serious issue for people living in many parts of the world. Recently, in the United States, a heatwave was announced in almost 30 different states. After the advisory was in place, temperatures soared to over 95 degrees Fahrenheit in some areas and over 100 degrees in o…


Climate Change Means Death

The public has no clue of climate changes deadly effect on the ecosystems and the coral reefs.  Knowledge of climate change will raise funding to prove its dangerous effects and start donations to save ecosystems. ‘Propelling our efforts in policy will call for change in colleges’. (Nicholas k. Patrise ETL).Which will lead to more research and more scholarships to young minds who notice the call. “Engaging our colleges are critical efforts as we move ahead in our call to…


Climate Change Impacts Biodiversity

Climate change is characterized as the distinct change in climate patterns in particular regions of the earth or as in relation to the earth globally.  In order for a climate change to occur, the pattern or alteration of normal weather patterns must be sustained for an extended period of time. In the event that the atmospheric temperature gradually increases in a specific region of the earth for a observable time period, a climate change has occurred. Over the last century, climate change…
