The Denial of Global Warming by R. Rodriguez

Global Warming has been happening over the past 50 years, the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history…and experts see the trend is accelerating (MacMillan). However, there are some people that still deny global warming even exist because the world stays the same and that there has not been that much change geographical. Global warming should be on everyone’s mind because we need to help the world get better rather than making it worse. By helping the earth change people are helping themselves so that they can stay on this planet to inhabit it, watching what people do to the planet can also help the rising sea levels get better, and finally global warming can help with the weather changing. All these topics can prove to non-believers that global warming is happening around them because there is facts to back it up. In order to make the world a better place people have to make the world better.

First, believers and non-believers of climate change need to know that global warming is caused by carbon dioxide (CO2) and other air pollutants and greenhouse gasses collect in the atmosphere and absorb sunlight and solar radiation that have bounced off the earth’s surface…this radiation would escape into space—but these pollutants, which can last for years to centuries in the atmosphere (MacMillan). Which means that the people who are supposed to be helping protect the earth is the actual cause of its destruction. However, it is understandable why people believe that global warming is a hoax, but there are graphs and facts to prove otherwise. In an article that giving facts to prove that global warming exist says that, “In 2009, the public discovered emails from the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit exposing how scientists who have been enormously influential in promoting the concept of man-made climate change actually attempted to cook the books to obtain results” (Bandler). By trying to create man-made climate can affect the other people inhabiting the world because it may not be causing the people that is making this so called man-made climate problems, but it is causing people in other locations problems. Problems like road damage, house floods and many others that make people move away from their home. “Hardest hit will be those living in low-lying coastal areas, and residents of poorer countries who do not have the resources to adapt to changes in temperature extremes and water resources” (Riebeek). That example is one of many on how global warming is true and how it is affecting people’s lives.

Another example, to prove that global warming is real is the sea levels in the ocean. Everyone depends on water for various different reasons, so by global warming changing it is changing the way someone lives. In an article that deals with climate change states that, “Some 40 percent of the world's population lives within 62 miles of the ocean, putting millions of lives and billions of dollars' worth of property and infrastructure at risk” (Climate Hot Map). The worse global warming gets the higher sea levels will rise, how will people who do not believe global warming exist be able to cope with losing their house if they do not at least try to help. The sea levels will only get worse if people do not act fast because now it is not only about saving the world they inhabit, but it is also about saving their homes.

In addition, to sea levels rising “fake” global warming also changes the weather. Most people are used to the way they live with their weather. In an article it says that, “For most places, global warming will result in more frequent hot days and fewer cool days, with the greatest warming occurring over land. Longer, more intense heat waves will become more common. Storms, floods, and droughts will generally be more severe as precipitation patterns change. Hurricanes may increase in intensity due to warmer ocean surface temperatures” (Riebeek). Now all these topics can probably be explained by people who think global warming is a hoax, but all these topics have enough evidence to back them up saying how global is real and that people have to stop it to make the earth a more acceptable place to live in.

In conclusion, it all depends on the person whether to believe if global warming is real or not. However, people need to help themselves so that they can stay on this planet to inhabit it, watching what people do to the planet can also help the rising sea levels get better, and finally global warming can help with the weather changing. Deny global warming even exist but that cannot change the evidence that these articles showed, people need to help the earth so that they can help themselves. Just because people do not want to believe the truth does not mean that the truth is not back up by proof.
