Global Warming: Fact or Fiction
I. History of Global Warming:

For many years the glaciers have been melting and gaining the worlds??™ attention.

This has resulted in the rise of over 6 in. in the sea level where as a hundred years ago it was

much lower. This raises the question as to whether global warming is a fact or fiction. Literature

on global warming is comprised mostly on intelligent discussion on having “too much caution on

global warming”(Nature, 1991) or “global warming is real” (Kerr, 1989, p. 603) rather than

fiction. Let me break? this down for you people, society is using to much resources and energy in

assuring ourselves that global warming is in fact an issue at all.

A) A driving force for the argument:

1. A debate that global warming is in fact a fiction. The top debate in favor of global

warming being fiction is the lack of scientific evidence connecting the emissions of greenhouse

gases as a result of human activity with global warming(Brown, 2010, p. 26). First and for most

any connection at all is completely uncertain and there is no proof.

2. A debate that global warming is a fact. Then we also have people in today??™s

that say global warming is a fact and say that society “have caused a number of environment

issues, such as global warming, ozone depletion, distinction of biological diversity, hazardous

wastes and acid rain, resource depletion and the destruction of ecological system, by overusing

and misallocating the natural resources” (Lee &Hseuh, 2010, p. 111).

II. Argumentation:

When you think of global warming, you wonder if it is fact or fiction and you have to think of? what specific issues are causing the melting of glaciers and the fast and drastic changes in weather. There has been plenty of facts showing that they are melting and has been faster than glaciers did a hundred years ago, and all over the world in many locations. The weather is difficult to follow and predict. To include, the weather is becoming more violent and severe when there is have bad weather.

A) The Melting Glaciers:

In Argentina the Upsala Glacier has been considered to be the image of global warming

for scientists for a long time. The Upsala glacier, is over than a thousand years old, and is

revealing an abundant amounts of channeling, proof of melting (Balaguer & Kiernan, 2010, p.

30).Balaguer and Kiernan (2010) in their journey to the Lake Argentina around early 2010

expressed the journey as “We are traveling through “Iceberg Bay,” where Upsala??™s moraine has

been slipping piece by piece into the lake. Landslides and floating masses of ice confirm for us

the effects of climate change” (p. 32). Does it actually mean something to have knowledge of

what specific area to put the blame on

B) Weather that is Difficult to Follow:

It has been proven that society has been going through a dramatic change in the weather

phenomena such as drought, deadly storms and heat waves. The phenomena we are experiencing

are now so typical that so-called “Hundred Year Storms” are now happening in some locations

all over the world every ten to fifteen years.is this not enough facts for society to rush to find a

solution, rather than spending several amounts of money and resources in figuring out whom

and to blame

III. Conclusion:

Society, the issue is not deciding whether this is a fact or it is fiction, but rather figuring

out how to solve it instead of figuring out who to blame. It is obvious that it is a fact, because it

is happening right before our eyes all the scientific facts has been gathered and now we need to

buckle down and find out what we need to do. Once we figure that out then we have solved this

horrible issue that could end mankind or even worse end out planets existence. We need to

think? about our future and focus on society??™s well-being and not who to blame. Obviously we are

growing and technology is advancing rapidly and we should be able to figure out how to solve an

issue that is happening rather than deciding who is blame and whether it is real or not, because it

is the proof is there.
