Reasons for Skepticism around Climate Change

There is still a lot of public debate surrounding climate change even though the scientific community has come together countless times to categorically state that climate change is happening more rapidly than it was supposed to and it is causing damage as we speak. There could be many reasons for this cynical behavior (Tomkiewicz). Firstly, climate change is hard to understand. There is an immense volume of jargon and technical language involved, not to mention the hardcore science that few…

What Influenced on Climate Changes

Once upon a time, about 3 million years ago, a genius emerged that would change everything, everything. The planet would never be the same again. The genius was Homo,Our genus. At about the same time, when our genius emerged, the climate on earth was changing drastically. There is growing evidence that some critical evolutionary steps coincide with times of significant climate change. For instance, about three million years ago, Africa changed from being covered by wooded areas to open grasslan…


Chlorophyll As A Reason of Climate Change

Global chlorophyll distribution induced by mesoscale eddiesAbstract:Mesoscale eddies can trap chlorophyll (CHL) and move it from one region to another. The concentration of oceanic CHL changes with depth, but satellites can only observe the CHL at the sea surface. Here, we estimate the eddy-induced CHL transport based on satellite observations, Argo float measurements, and global empirical models of vertical distribution of CHL. The combination of satellite altimeter data and Argo measurements …


Climate Change and Ecosystem Issues

Arid and semiarid ecosystems around the world are experiencing sporadic rain events, which play underlying roles in determining microbial activity and resulting effects on biogeochemical cycling (Collins et al., 2008; Blazewicz et al., 2014). Soil microbial activities decrease during dry conditions with rewetting episodes, causing a sharp rise in microbial respiration and activity (Birch, 1958). Soil organic matter decomposition rates are linked to microbial activity (Moorhead and Sinsabaugh, 2…


Concerns About Climate Change

Climate change is one of the major contemporary concerns of humanity in the twenty-first century and has not only influenced the quantity of rainfall received but also other important characteristics, such as rainfall intensity, length of the rain season, rainfall onset and cessation dates, trends and number of rainy days in a given season (Recha et al. 2012; Mushore et al. 2017; Reason2017). Global climate change has been detected by warming the atmosphere, and ocean temperature, variations in…


A Dealing With Climate Change

Climate change, the long-term change in the Earth’s weather pattern caused by the increase of greenhouse gasses trapped in the earth’s atmosphere is real. Despite what people may say, it is not a hoax. It has an impact on our health and wellbeing and is a direct result of our current economic system, capitalism. By definition, capitalism is the “economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit rather than b…

Climate Change in Human Life

Climate change looms over my life: it informs my plans for my future, it pulls my thoughts into despair, and it creeps into my conversations. Putting it into words is hard, I struggle to find the balance in how to present my thoughts. I worry that the level of fear I hold will be perceived as an overreaction. Then I wonder if those I talk to will get scared and give up before they’ve taken action. I read and wonder and struggle with how to give hope. I read and wonder and struggle with…


The Effects of Climate Change and Tree Vigor on the Decimation and Outbreaks of Pine Beetles

Throughout Western North America coniferous forests are being decimated by pine beetles. Pine beetles, which include variety of species within the genus Dendroctonus, are a natural component of western coniferous forests and their populations have historically been kept at an equilibrium, where the beetles act as important forest thinning agents without affecting the typical community makeup. (Hayes and Lundquist 2007) Previous outbreaks have occurred, but none have been as widespread and detri…


The Severe Influence of Climate Change We are Affected by Today

An Analysis of Two Articles on How the Climate Change Affects Animal Movement Patterns

The two articles discuss the movement of animals and how climate change affects those patterns. Climate change, because it warms the earth, causes animals that live in lower latitudes to migrate towards the poles in order to fit their optimum temperature range, and animals that are affected most by temperature changes move the most. While it is good to see that animals are adapting, animals that live at the poles already will die because they do not have any place to move. Migration patterns…
