...Global Climate Change Although the was not part of the recent presidential debates, global climate change is the most important issue facing the U.S. and the world. Also refereed to as “global warming” the phenomenon is already taking its toll on the planet. However, we’ve only seen a glimpse of what’s to come in both the near and far future. It’s not a myth as deniers would have people believe or even a debate to be had. The earth’s climate is warming and man-made air pollutants are the main cause.

...Global Climate change The Carbon Cycle Global warming is mainly attributable to the rising levels of carbon dioxide. The Keeling Curve, initiated by Charles David Keeling in 1958, plots the concentration of carbon dioxide against time. The curve shows a variation of the concentration of carbon dioxide with maximum levels in May decreasing to a minimum in October. It also shows a rapid increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide of about 2 ppm per year because of anthropogenic emissions. The Carbon Cycle relates to the exchange of carbon between the rock, and surface reservoirs. The rock reservoir includes oil and coal deposits, limestone, and carbon-rich shale while the surface reservoirs include...

...Global Climate Change Introduction The global climate change is not an alien concept in the contemporary society. It is a trend that is continuing and can be attributed to human activities. The global climate change is, therefore, man-made. Humans contribute to change by causing potential changes in the atmosphere in the amount of aerosols and green house gases and cloudiness. The biggest contribution to the climate change arises from burning of the fossils releasing carbon IV oxide gas to the atmosphere (NAS 18). The burning of fossil fuels is not a natural phenomenon; it is a process that is instigated by the human work on the environment. As such the human activities... Contribution of Man in the...

Carbon (IV) oxide gas is one of the greenhouse gases that if concentrated in the atmosphere, lead to increase in the temperature (Berne 187).
