It has prevented some people from taking climate change more seriously and doing the preventive actions that will slow down the global warming and maybe even reverse this warming trend (Lutgens, Tarbuck & Tasa, 2011, p. 12). Scientific research shows there is direct connection (a positive correlation) between the level of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere and global warming because CO2 is a greenhouse gas.

...atmosphere of capitalism Summary Capitalism has brought about an atmosphere of hostility to its own social order, in a manner that is striking to the extent that the Marxist theory cannot explain (Schumpeter, 143). This calls for the development of a theory that can explain how capitalism has created this air of hostility to the social order. Capitalism has destroyed the moral authority of many other institutions, and even surpassed its boundaries to touch on the private properties. Therefore, while capitalism may thrive for a certain duration at the expense of the lower class people, it eventually ends up creating some rational hostility, since it keeps damaging the social order... against...

...atmosphere – generally in the form of metallic sodium, iron, silicon, potassium, magnesium, and calcium particles less than 1mm in diameter. When combined with high temperature in the upper atmosphere, these particles vaporize and form the Atomic Metal Layers located 80 to 105 kilometres above the Earth’s surface (ATHENA Research and Innovation Centre n. pag.). The Sodium Layer was discovered in 1929 by Vesto Melvin Slipher. Since then, other layers have been discovered such as iron, potassium, and calcium (Keese n. pag). Majority of observations on atomic metal layers have been through... Atoms of Metals and LIDAR Introduction Every day, one hundred metric tons of meteor debris enters the Earth’s...

...atmosphere. For instance, 40 percent of the United States’ carbon dioxide emission into the atmosphere originates from production of electricity. Moreover, nearly its 93 percent emission is from burning coal that is also pegged on the utilization of electricity in industries (Haldar... Causes and Effects of Global Warming The effects climate change commonly referred to global warming are usually far reaching and the effects have since led to enormous social and ecological changes. The global warming have been initiated directly or and indirectly by human activities that usually lead to greenhouse gases emission into the environment. Some Scientists believe that climatic changes are driven by human activi...

...atmosphere. For instance, he argues that the amount of this gas was recorded high in the year 2011 and the value is expected to increase in the years to come. Notably, it is true that global warming is threatening the world and its leaders. However, global warming cannot only attribute to the increased emission into the atmosphere. In fact, even if human beings stop emitting greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, global warming will still be a threat since the ozone is already depleted and it contributes to the increase of generation of greenhouse gases through radical reaction mechanisms into the atmosphere (Archer, 2012). As Johannessen note, it is true that carbon dioxide is a threat... Global...

...atmosphere. Green house gases often get produced from human and natural activities. Green house gases comprise of water vapour, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, ozone, methane and aerosols. With the increase in the number of industries on the surface of the earth, plus the number of machineries that emit greenhouse gases like cars, a lot of problems emanate. Green house gases often get emitted to the atmosphere resulting to the “blanket effect” (Craft). This entails the gases permitting the entry of radiation from the sun...

...atmosphere are often called greenhouse gases” (Greenhouse Gas Emission). The absorption and radiation of the thermal energy by greenhouse gases are the major reason for greenhouse effect. Greenhouse gases are responsible for maintaining atmospheric temperature. However, when the amount of greenhouse gases increase in the atmosphere, the atmospheric temperature may increase gradually because of the heat absorption and liberation capabilities of greenhouse gases. The major greenhouse gases in earth’s atmosphere are water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone. Heavy industrialization is believed to be the major reason for the increase... Greenhouse Gases “Gases that trap heat in the...
