Global Warming- The Ongoing Debate
I just read a article titled “Less Sea Ice Brings More Snow” which talks about how the melting ice caps due to global warming are causing brutal winters in parts of the world. They found that the ice, which reflects the sun’s rays, is melting and now the ocean which is underneath starts absorbing the rays because of the darker color. This causes the water surface and the air above it to increase in temperature, which changes how the wind circulates.
But this just another article discussing one of the numerous effects of global warming. What I wanted to focus on is how global warming has become such a popular topic, and how some people are slowly changing their ways, either by recycling, conserving electricity, carpooling, etc. in order to be more environmentally friendly. But there is also the other group that doesn’t believe that global warming, or global climate change, doesn’t exist at all, and that these abnormally warm days during our winter season are just natural phenomenons.
My question is: What are your views on how we are dealing with the effects of global warming? Are there any ways that we can encourage people who aren’t trying to save the environment to start? And for those who don’t believe it exists, what is your reaction to how there have been numerous articles that talk about how we must adjust our behaviors now before we cause permanent damage to the environment?
