The Nobel Peace Prize 2007 was awarded to Albert Arnold Gore Jr. and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for their “efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change and to lay the foundation for the measures that are needed to counter act such change” (nobelpeace.org), through the documentary An Inconvenient Truth. Al Gore has been on the front lines of the war on global warming, and in his words declares that “we should prepare against other threats besides terrorism” (Gore, 2006).

Up to that point in time, 1826, recollection of the way events took place were left up to the old tales past down from generations to generation. Even thought the first photograph was taken 1826, “[t]he first colour photograph was made by James Clerk Maxwell, with the help of Thomas Sutton, in 1861” (Camera, 2008). The camera was invented just as the Industrial Revolution was taking shape. The industrial Revolution is what is to blame for the rapid growth of Global Warming over the last 200 years. This is interesting because in order to see what the effects of something is on a particular object, you would have to know what it look like prior to the exposure of the event. “The industrial Revolution, the period in the late 18th…” (Industrial Revolution, 2008). With out the Industrial Revolution we might not have the Global Warming of today, however this research paper would have take years to comply, not ten days, and I would be breaking my wrist with a old ink pen.

Whether or not Global Warming existed is beyond this essay, however the fact that everyone who presents this topic, even “…former next president of the United States…,” (Gore, 2008), add images to support there claim.
The idea that you must know the “control” of the object you are studying dates back to when “Socrates developed the Scientific Method in the early 19th Centuries.” To be in line with the rest of the research that has been done on Global Warming, Scientists would have to have Photographs prior to the Industrial revolution to see what the changes where when there was no big industry around. As the earliest noted pictures of nature for studied uses came from Francis Frith, Firth a explore of “Foreign Scenics,” (Galer, 239), became known for his epic voyage:
One of the early traveling photographers supplying images for the public appetite for these images was Franics Frith. He published a paper in ‘The Art Journal’ in 1859 entitled “The Art of Photography” (Galer, 239).
I believe that you could not legitimately take pictures of a man the day he starts smoking, and take another picture ten years later and justify the physical changes that the picture would display all to smoking without knowing the previous state of the man. You would need at least one from ten years prior to the first inhalation of the nicotine. After all the earth is a leaving organism, and all living thing shall decay over time, maybe we should just accepted the fact that mother earth is going to die no matter what.
According to a study conducted by researchers at UC Irvine, the University of Padua, Italy, there is cause for concern that...
