A Thing About Climate Change

By Paige Jones


Climate change is killing the earth ,the earth is getting hot because the temperature is rising therefore makes the water on the earth evaporate. climate change is a very serious issue,it may be one of the biggest problems the planet is facing reason of climate is because certain gases in the atmosphere block heat from escaping, long lived gases that remain semi permanently in the atmosphere,and do not respond physically or chemically to changes in temperature are described as “forcing” climate change.The  changing climate impacts society and  eco system in a variety of ways.For  example climate change can effect by increase or decrease rainfall, influence agricultural crop fields, affect human health , cause changes to forests and other ecosystems or even impact the energy supply.  

It’s hard to think of more weather powerful enough to disrupt life across our entire planet.Huge natural disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis can affect so many people.Be specific. But global warming is a very difficult topic to someone about?, global warming is a slow rise of the earth’s temperature, representing a scale of threats bigger than anything that no one has ever  faced in recent history,the earth is getting slightly warmer year by year.global warming is caused by a phenomenon known as the greenhouse effect.A greenhouse good  to grow plants and  vegetables because it traps heat inside so does earth right now.Eath stays hotter than the atmosphere around it,which makes global warming.Global warming has the potential to sesriously disrupt food supplies,drive cost upward, and affect everything from a coffee table to cattle ,from stable to food crops to the garden in your backyard.

The Who and The Why

Adapting to climate change  is another way to put it. If people can’t stop  Climate Change then people will have to  just adapt to it.Adapting to life in a changing climate involves adjusting to actual or expected future climate. The goal is to reduce our vulnerability to the harmful effect on climate change,People have been adapting to their environments  throughout history by developing practice ,however climate change raises the possibility that society will experience climatic shifts in temperatures storm frequencies,and floods.

Some people believe that global warming and climate change is an urgent problem, but other people don’t think that it’s a big problem because a large amount of the earth’s warming is being delayed. 

Case Study

James Hansen, the Nasa’s top climatologist and one of the first to warn greenhouse warming has been detected in 2008 . Hansen has a team that came up with a startling conclusion that the current level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is already in the danger zone in the earth.Hasen was attracted to science and the research done by James Van Allen’s Space Science Program. In physics and astronomy department.But his focus shifted to planetary research that involved trying to understand the climate change on the earth.    

James Hansen wrote a paper called”Can We Defuse the Global Warming Time Bomb?” In which he argued that human-caused forces on the climate are now greater than natural ones, and that this is over long period. Which is why human caused large climate change.The first climate change prediction computed from a general circulation model that was published by Hansen was in 1988.He states that a lower limit on “dangerous anthropogenic interference”is set by stability of the greenland and antarctic ice sheets. People need to work together internationally to accomplish it. It’s not only about climate change but also benefits for human health,agriculture and the environment.

Copenhagen is a place in Denmark that sits on the coastal island of Zealand and Amager.

Copenhagen is taking climate change as a big deal because people’s lives is put at risk.The big questions is by how much will we agree to reducing emission ?and how much funding will Copenhagen commit to give developing countries to help them adjust to climate change and avoid  climate disintegrating energy use as their economies grow?.so far the united states has proposed cutting emissions by 3 to 4 percent of 1990 levels by 2020, whereas the European has agreed to a 20 percent cut.some environmental organizations are concerned that the big polluters of the world  are not going to agree to reduce emission by enough and that will not enough,and that will not achieve anything big enough to have significant impact on climate change.

    Do you think that climate change is inevitable? And if so, what do you think the best way to go forward is? How urgent is it?
