A pretty self explanatory debate. I will be arguing that global warming is real and contributed to by humans, and I welcome any opponent who would wish to challenge me on this subject. I have Just a few criteria for who my opponent is: 1) They are polite. 2) They cite their sources. The debate debate will be structured like this: Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Opening statements Round 3: Rebuttals Round 4: Defense of your opening statement and a closing statement....

Global Warming: Climate Change

We should take action on climate change now because it is predicted that the climate will increase by 4-6 degrees by 2100. Right now the climate is increased by 1 degree Celsius warmer since 1880. In the past extreme heat and drought has caused thousands of deaths. For example in Chicago 1995, 795 people died in a heat wave and in Europe 2003, 30,000 people died from another heat wave. In Northwest China desertification of farming lands causes a loss of 1000 miles annually. The Amazon forests pl...

Global Warming is mostly natural and a waste of our time and money to stop it

Global Warming has been highly exaggerated. If you understand climate you should realize there are much more aspects to our atmosphere than CO2 caused by humans . CO2 caused by humans make up less than 4 percent of the C02 in our atmosphere yet politicians believe that we are to blame and that we must try to save the planet through some sort of carbon tax which while magically make the climate change. The simple facts are that CO2 is a RESULT of temperature changes NOT a cause. The climate graph...

Global Warming is killing us

Global Warming is Happening and we will die if something is not done, NOW! More CO2 will lead to hotter climate that causes sea/water level to rise and ice melts, which leads to worldwide sea levels increased 4-10 inches in the last century. Climate changes which cause extreme storms, tsunami, typhoons, flooding, land covered with water steer towards the damaging of plants and human population. In the end the earth is hotter and bluer where it is not capable of any life. The study of ice co...
