Climate Change in the Earth Atmosphere Have More Than One Cause

Climate Change

Climate change is a constant topic of debate, yet ever since man inhabited the planet there has been deep curiosities about the Earth’s mysteries.  As the human existence continues to evolve science often question the earth’s ability to adapt in the process. Long ago scientific issues arose concerning whether the increasing population would have a negative affect on the environment.  After conducting many different studies, scientists found there has been a climate change due to fossil fuel usage also called greenhouse gases.  More recent studies conducted by NASA all suggest that the climate changes in the Earth’s atmosphere have more than one cause.

Many years ago people were mainly examining how the climate change would negatively affect the Earth’s livable environment. They questioned whether the climate change would disturb the osmosis process for all living tree and plant life.  The term greenhouse gases became more popular, while, scientists confirmed that pollution emitted from certain industrial factories and refineries was the primary cause for climate change.  Studies revealed that carbon dioxide, CO2, in the atmosphere’s mid to high level surfaces altered from the unique density which existed in preindustrial times.

For the last two centuries, the mechanical system that most commercial factories use to produce their raw resources into products has been generated by propane gas emissions. More recently scientists developed natural gases which are safer to use, and many people believe it should be a mandatory requirement. The smoke stacks generated from the natural gases produce a much lesser effect on the CO2 level and the climate change; however,  the use of natural gas is just an available option. Critics also believe that all of propane generating corporations should be regulated to gradually replace their usage of propane gas productions entirely.

Scientists have determined that other natural elements, such as the tropic oceans and the lands near the South pole, are at risk of gaining drastically higher CO2 levels. Sources said, “the climate change will increase by approximately 1 percent per year, until the total amount of atmospheric carbon dioxide has doubled.” Some studies indicate the rising temperatures of the tropic oceans are contributing to the increase of atmospheric CO2. With that being said, it can be certain that climate change in the Earth’s atmosphere has more than one cause.

Recycling has been a very important factor in lowering green-house gases generated by the population. Every waste organization in the U.S. participates in a recycling program to help eliminate unnecessary burning of waste and non perishable products.  Since the population continues to increase more rapidly than any other era, it is essential that recycling technologies continue to be an integral part of the solution.

Science will continue to deliberate over the most accurate concepts, findings and understandings that are already documented over time. The scientific reasoning behind this assumption demonstrates as time goes by on the livable earth, there are many elements and factors that will change. Therefore a new conclusive study of one particular theory may bring a different, more detailed result after retesting a previous finding. From the big bang theory to the drastic new revelations of global warming, science will forever uncover the myths behind the Earth’s predisposed of notions.

Scientists continue to study global warming, and create effective methods to help preserve the environment. Researchers cannot agree on which natural element contributes to climate change. They do agree, however, that growing temperatures and climate change in the Earth’s atmosphere has more than one cause.  The seasonal drifting of ice masses in the North Pole, the sun’s increasing heat distribution near the South Pole, industrial greenhouse gases and the warming of the tropic ocean’s cool waters are all contributing factors of the Earth’s climate change.

    This is a terribly written and researched article, and is full of misinformation. I’d like to clarify a few things. First, what is meant when we call CO2 a greenhouse gas is that it absorbs infrared radiation, and then releases that energy in random directions. The earth is constantly emitting infrared, and CO2 in the atmosphere will send some of that radiation back to the earth. This is the greenhouse effect.

    Second, increasing combustion of of coal, petroleum and methane has increased the concentration of CO2 from 280 ppm in 1900 to 400 ppm today. That is a 70% increase, and it has caused a 1 degree Celsius increase in global temperature.

    Third, that warming has caused climate change. Plant and animal species are moving north, arctic ice extent and volume is decreasing, and glaciers are melting everywhere as a result of this change.

    Go to IPCC AR4 and to for confirmation of these facts. They refute the specious arguments against these facts made by apologists for the fossil fuel industry.

    Reduction of CO2 is useful only if CO2 is the cause. When fossil fuels are burned, they release heat (that’s the purpose of fuels). CO2 is also released. Since fossils are 80% of our energy supply, it is only natural that rising CO2 correlated with rising temperature, but the heat emissions are the cause of warming. They alone can account for the rise in air and water temperatures, as well as the melting of Arctic glaciers that we are experiencing. During the 20th century energy use rose 20-fold, while CO2 increased 25%. How much this increased the effectiveness of the greenhouse blanket is debatable but there should be no doubt that release of this tremendous amount of heat beneath this blanket is having serious consequences. In 2008 this amounted to 50x10E16 btus a year, an amount equivalent to 500 mount saint helen’s explosions. Energy consumption is still rising.If heat is indeed the problem Natural gas is no better than coal from that standpoint. Capture and storing CO2 is a waste of time and money. Nine billion tons must be removed for every ppm reduction and for dubious benefit. Taxing CO2 allows nuclear power to emit heat at no penalty, though nuclear power emits a total of three times the heat as its electrical output. Global warming can be halted by replacing fossil and nuclear with renewable sources like solar, wind, hydroelectric, etc.. The rate of installation must exceed the rate of increased demand for energy. In the meantime we should continue to exploit our domestic resources until we no longer have to import. This will neither help nor hurt global warming but will greatly improve our energy independence and financial health.
