Global Warming Exists

heyitsjay

For my opening statement/introduction, I will continue by defining the main topic, global warming. "Global Warming": Is the dramatic increase in global temperature in both the air and ocean. Global warming is caused by the excessive release of co2 (carbon dioxide) into the air. These released amounts of carbon dioxide gather in the ozone layer, which is supposed to protect the world from the sun's dangerous ultra violent rays. When the co2 is in the ozone layer, instead of defending the w...

The global warming hockey stick is bad science

RoyLatham
InfraRedEd

The global warming hockey stick is a graph of global temperature over time. It was produced by a scientist named Mann, who first published it in a scientific journal in the mid-nineties. He modified and included it in the 2000 report of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It is called a hockey stick because it shows very little variation of climate for the past thousand years until the 20th century, when temperatures soared. That makes the graph look like a hockey stick on its side...

Anthropogenic Global Warming

Anthropogenic Global Warming is enough of a threat to take action against it. I am not certain if it is real; neither side it. But, what I do know is that if we do not take action against it as soon as possible, and it turns out to be real; we will face irreversible side-effects. I will now explain my basic and SIMPLIFIED arguments. I will expand on them as the debate advances. Green House Gases control the global temperatures. This is what keeps us stable; unlike how it is on the moon. We...

Global Warming is a greater threat to life than Nuclear War

Derek.Gunn
PublicForumG-d

Nuclear War may never happen. Global Warming is already happening. Nuclear missiles would primarily impact very specific military targets and concentrated industrial centres. Global warming affects the entire planet. Nagasaki and Hiroshima recovered quickly, vegetation blossoming - even around the epicentres - within months.(1) It took us over 100 years to add greenhouse gasses to the atmosphere and oceans to cause the change we are now seeing. It will a long time to reduce our emission...

Global warming in not a ridiculous theory

Derek.Gunn
wheelhouse3

There is a large amount of evidence to suggest that global warming not just a ridiculous theory. Certainly there are a good many people who choose not to believe it because of their politics, because it's not in their economic interest to do so, or because they'd rather not have to change anything. Unfortunately, nature doesn't care about our petty affairs. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to show that global warming is a ridiculous theory, perhaps just a figment of someone...

Global warming is NOT a phenomenon that is happening right now.

Thank you Ching-Kit for being my friend, Thank you for debating and telling me about debate.org, Thank you for teaching me good strategies. Now prepare yourself. Global warming is an inaccurate theory. As a part of my evidence I will present to you a situation. In the 1970's, many news groups and organizations that studied the weather had a strong belief that we were going to, soon, go through another ice-age. Thirty years later: here we are. Earth has always gone through fluxua...

Global Warming is bad because many animals die cause there habitat is getting destroyed. It is also slowly destroying our ozone with pollution. I don't understand how people can even not care about these animals because they want to have higher temperatures and more beaches....

Global Warming Exists and we as a country need to do something about it!

This debate is for those out there that say things like "global warming does not exist." There are numerous evidences that support the fact that global warming is happening. According to national geographic the rate of warming is increasing. The 20th century's last two decades were the hottest in 400 years and possibly the warmest for several millennia, according to a number of climate studies. And the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports that 11 of the past 1...

I am here to convince you all that Al Gore is a terrorist. This is not about global warming, this is about a simple definition. Please do not vote based on opinion, vote on the debate. Now while I await an opponent to accept, I will bring up some of my main points. Here is the defintion fo terrorism the United States government uses: "To intimidate or coerce a civilian population;or To influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion." By this definition Al Gore is a...
