This upcoming paper is going to be about global warming. I am going to discuss the basic concepts of global warming and the drastic effects that it is having on the global environment. From America to Japan the average global temperature is increasing at a master rate than it has in over 200 years. In this paper I will discuss what experts believed have caused this drastic temperature increase and what efforts are being done to hopefully solve this serious problem. Global Warming refers to an unequivocal and continuing rise in the average temperature of earth’s climate system. Despite the ocean’s dominant role in energy storage, the term global warming refers to increases in temperature has increased about 1.4 degrees farenheit. That is the biggest average increase in over 300 years. Many people have several theories of why this is happening. I will talk about the most reliable theories and discuss what is right and right is wrong and what I think is the best of all the theories and is the most accurate theory based on all of the other theories. Finally I will discuss what we can do as humans on earth to hopefully slow down the drastic temperature increase across the globe to help keep our earth the way that it is. According to some experts if the temperature keeps increasing the way it is it could melt the polar ice caps and completely flood the world.
