Climate Change
Over the years, there has been scientific evidence that shows the dangerous effects of climate change. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, they define climate change as the change in global climate patterns that are increasingly apparent from the mid to late 20th century onwards and attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels. The evidence of climate change has become more apparent and has increased its affects throughout the years and cannot go unnoticed any longer. This controversial issue is very important to take a stand on creating a ...view middle of the document...

1°C (1.98°F) and a maximum, barring unforeseen events, of about 6.4°C (11.52°F), (“Greenhouse Gases”).  According to AR5, atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide have increased since 1750 due to human activity. In 2011, the concentrations of these greenhouse gases exceeded pre-industrial levels by about 40 percent, 150 percent, and 20 percent (“Greenhouse Gases”). These results show the drastic changes that have occurred from greenhouse gases and human activity. Human activity includes us emitting too many chemicals into the atmosphere creating a bigger issue to global warming, such as carbon dioxide.
Now there are many controversies that come with this issue of climate change. One that stands out is the economic impact that this issue might have on our economy. Many Republicans deny scientific research that has been done on climate change, and also believe that reducing emissions can be too damaging to the U.S. economy (“Climate Change”). Yes this will take great cost in the process to slow down climate change, but if we don’t act now it can become too late to turn back before the world’s entire state will be affected. Their flaws lie on the fact that we are already experiencing economic problems with health problems arising from climate change and the damages from hurricanes, storms, and others disasters that have already happened. We are already entering a very dangerous zone where we are at the peak of global warming.
According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), global warming and climate change trigger a host of sometimes divergent consequences. For instances, such occurrences include more rain and snow in some places and less in others, more floods and droughts, increased melting of mountain glaciers and ice caps in many areas, but increased snowfall in others. This is why scientists prefer the phrase "global climate change" when speaking of the overall impacts of global warming (“Climate Change”). There has been much devastation that has happened in the world including hurricane Sandy, various earthquakes, and floods that have drove thousands of people from their homes. These disastrous events have happened from unnatural cycles that have come upon from drastic climate change. Not only do these events from climate change affect humans, it also has an impact on our resources such as farming crops, and the fact that more animals are becoming extinct around the world. According to some Harvard Medical School doctors believe that recent outbreaks of malaria, dengue fever ("breakbone" fever), Hanta virus and similar diseases in the West due to climate change are the consequences of global warming ( Ravi). These extreme temperatures from climate change can cause heat strokes and death. Studies have shown an increase of 145% in deaths related in New York City alone (Ravi). These statistics are essential for us to know what our future might look like if we don’t change our ways and put a...
