Analysis Of Climate Change Issues

In today’s world the topic about climate change has been a hot issue of debate among researchers and geological experts. Current news, stories, and statistical facts about climate change from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show that humanity experience significant climate changes regarding global average temperature, where each year’s earth temperature is rising, the level of carbon dioxide, where the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has risen by 25 per cents since 1958, and global sea level, where it rises at rate of about 3.2 mm per year (climate.gov). Data streams show that, “for the last 45 years, global surface temperature rose at an average rate of about 0.17 °C (around 0.3 Fahrenheit) per decade” (Dahlman, “Climate Change: Global Temperature”). Researchers have explained that these climate changes negatively affect the earth’s overall processes, ecosystems, the natural world, infrastructures and economy.

One of the most impressive facts is that “since 1976, every year has been warmer than the long term average” and “the 17 warmest years on record have all occurred in the last 18 years” (Dahlman, “Climate Change: Global Temperature”). Exploring the Climate Government website, I noticed significant global sea level changes which cause floods, hazards from storms, and shoreline erosions. But the worse thing is that “40% of the U.S. population lives in a coastal area that may be vulnerable to sea level rise” (Lindsey, “Climate Change: Global Sea Level”). Rising sea level can damage infrastructure which negatively affect economic system, regional industry, local jobs, water supplies, bridges, etc. Sea level changes may also destroy the natural world, coastal ecosystems, recreations, and habitat for animals. Additionally, I noticed high natural concentration of carbon dioxide in atmosphere. Analyzing all these climate change issues, I consider that human activities significantly contribute to the Earth’s climate change (for example, the burning of gasoline by automobiles, the burning of coal to produce electricity, natural gas, and similar pollution created by human activities).
