Global warming

  1. 1. Elisabeth Harding
  2. 2. *Global warming is a current issue in the media with a wide variety of research supporting different causes. I want to find the leading reason our planet’s ice glaciers are melting.*What is the main cause of global warming?*The media highlight global warming to be a problem although some research proves otherwise. I would like to research both sides to have a better understanding.
  3. 3. *I looked at information from Bob Corell’s Artic Climate Assessment and Paul Matewski research*Then I looked at an alternate view from Rle Oldenburg from Naesaq Museum in Greenland and Dr. Soon an astrophysicist*Also a New York Times article from Doha Talks about Global Warming and Climate Change*The articles all had a good point of view but didn’t address the other side of the argument
  4. 4. *I expected to find a lot of research on this subject with multiple reasons on the cause of global warming*I also expected some research to supported the idea that global warming does not exist.*I hypotheses that global warming is occurring and people are the main contributed to the problem because of all the pollution we release in the atmosphere.
  5. 5. *I conducted a content analysis because this is a current issue with a lot of publicity. I want to learn all the side of the argument and if it is possible to change the melting.*I researched several different sources to gather data. *
  6. 6. *Bob Corell, an American scientist, believes people are the main contribution to the top of the world melting*Corell conducted a study called Artic Climate Impact Assessment. In his results, he found the temperatures in the artic is rising twice as fast as the rest of the world*The seas are rising and polar bears are getting close to become extinction *
  7. 7. *Corell’s research found when green house gases are released they are trapped creating solar heat*In 1992 Greenland had began to melt then ten years later much more ice has melted*98% of the world’s mountain glaciers are melting *
  8. 8. *The amount of ice melting in the artic is equivalent to all the ice in the alps (over 105 million acres of ice) in only fifteen years*He predicts sea levels all over the world will rise 3ft. higher in 100 years*When the ice melts it causes a chain effect.The snow and ice melts then becoming dark water that produces solar heat leading to more snow and ice melting *
  9. 9. *Corell believes it is impossible to reverse global warming because so many green house gases have already been released that the temperature will rise no matter what we do differently *He is certain global warming will increase the severity of our tropical storm such as hurricanes and cyclones in the pacific. Also global warming will lead to more storms*
  10. 10. *Paul Mayewski, form USM, lead 25 expeditions collecting deep ice cores from glaciers in Greenland*Ice catches everything in the air so the ice samples Mayewski gathered showed an atmospheric record that covers half of a million years*The ice cores can explain the green house gas levels, whether it was stormy, and what the temperatures were over the years *
  11. 11. *Matewski results told him human activity is responsible for global warming*The artic has not experienced CO2 levels like this in thousands of years*Something has changed to cause this melting and that is burning of fossil fuels, releasing carbon dioxide, CO2 and other green house gases *
  12. 12. *Rle Oldenburg from Narsaq Museum in Greenland believes the climate warming is a natural process that started in 200 BC*When the Vikings first found Greenland in the 10th century, the land had no glaciers but instead had green fields, trees, and open waters*The Vikings settled here because it was a good place to farm, fish and live. They created civilization * for a century until the climate changed
  13. 13. *A few hundred years after the turn of the 11th century the Vikings were wiped out. Greenland had began to freeze over killing the crops and animals.*Greenland was not the only part of the world get drop in temperature. Rivers and canals in England and the Netherlands also froze. People worried for their safety. *
  14. 14. *The climate is not constant but is always changing*Dr. Soon, an astrophysicist, researched the eras of the warming and cooling climate cycle 200BC- 600AD :Roman Warming 440- 900 :Dark Ages Cooling 900- 1300 :Medieval Warming 1300- 1850 :Little Ice Age (phase 1 and 2) 1850- present :Modern warming*This research supports a natural climate cycle and notan issue of global warming *
  15. 15. *According to Doha Talks, Global warming is a rising issues that needs to be addressed*She believes this should be the most pressing issue for world leaders*The problems due to the use of too many green house gasses mostly burning fossil fuels and forests *
  16. 16. *In North America and other well developed countries, the rate of emission has dropped because of the week economies and awareness of the issue*Many states in the U.S. have set renewable power programs that have played a large role in reducing emission*Although emission had decrease in some of the advanced countries, the developing countries such as China and India continues to increase in emission *
  17. 17. *Coal is the dirtiest and most carbon fuel* Emission rates increased 5% in the past year *
  18. 18. *I found most researchers believe human activity is the main cause of global warming.*Each researcher had a different opinion on how to solve the problem or if it even needed to be solved.*The majority of the research I found supposed my hypothesis with more detail.*I believe my information would be more accurate if I researched more people to have a wider range of data. *
