A major concern to anyone who understands the poses of society would be global warming. Recently, a few concerns have been discussed about how to stop or slow down the process. We need to consider nuclear power stations, which some people think will cure or stop the issue of slowing global warming to the complete minimal stage. But we ask ourselves would the best option be nuclear power plants....   [tags: Global warming, Carbon dioxide, Coal]

Global Warming And Global Warning By Bjorn Lomborg

- The book I chose to read for this book report was Cool It: The Skeptical Environmentalist’s Guide to Global Warning by Bjorn Lomborg. This book was originally published in 2007. Lomborg offered many perspectives on the subject of global warming and climate change, stating that it will cost millions and billions of dollars. However, even with the amount of work and money put into stopping the global warming problem, there may be little impact on the world. Lomborg argues that perhaps humans should start with smaller steps, such as fighting diseases or maintaining a safe, fresh water supply....   [tags: Global warming, Climate change, Bjørn Lomborg]

Global Warming On The Polar Regions

- Global Warming in the Polar Regions Ice cores and other evidence of climate conditions in the past provide evidence that rising atmospheric carbon dioxide levels are associated with the rising of global temperatures. Human activities, primarily the burning of fossil fuels and the clearing of forests have increased the amounts of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane in the atmosphere (Union of Concerned Scientists). Since the beginning of the industrial revolution the atmospheric greenhouse gases have increased by an average of about 35% and the average temperature has risen about 0.6 celsius (Live Science)....   [tags: Climate, Climate change, Global warming]
