The world is coming to an end because of Global Warming

Misty14
Thandiflight

The world IS coming to an end because of Global Warming, the polar ice-caps are melting and sea levels are rising, temperatures are getting hotter because of excess carbon dioxide emmitted by transport vehicals. Hurricanes and Cyclones are destroying civilizations because of rising sea temperature. There is a massive increase of flooding. Global warming will be the end of humanity....

we needn't make big changes in our life style to stop global warming

merciless
LaissezFaire

I believe that the public doesn't have to make big changes in lifestyle to stop global warming. These include turning the thermostat down below 72 degrees, paying a lot more money for electric cars, and paying a lot more money for electricity. In this debate, I will be arguing that either a) humans are not responsible for global warming or b) there are other ways to prevent global warming that do not interfere with our lifestyles. I would like to inform my opponent that I do think that we should...

Global Warming; real or not?

Crayzman2297
gizmo1650

I maintain that Global Warming is not brought about by man, and cannot be reversed by man. The statistics are grossly inflated by the fact that they are predictions made by computers and not historical facts. Computers today are nowhere nearly accurate enough to predict the future climate change, and many people seem to be ignoring the fact that our world is still emerging from an ice age. ?...

I will be arguing Pro in this debate. DDO= debate.org (this website) Please note that this is referring to the list of 'big issues' found on everyone's profile page. Rules:1) No semantics2) No posting arguments in the first round (this round)3) No arguing objective reality or nihilism in any way. More specifically, do not argue that no one 'should' do anything, in regards to the title. I realize that this is a legitimate...

Human induced global warming exists

Resolution: Human Induced Global Warming Exists I will be arguing that the resolution is true and refute my opponent's claims, while my opponent will argue that it is false and also refute my claims. BOP is shared. No new arguments, only rebuttals in round 5. Carbon Dioxide a. Correlation to temperature CO2 is increasing. In fact, the level of it in our atmosphere now is higher than any point in the past 800 thousand years. [1] Temperature records show that the temperature is increa...

Global Warming is caused by humans

First off, I would like to thank my opponent. Good luck. I only have two points at the moment. So here they are: (1) Earth's mean surface temperature has increased about 1.2 degrees Fahrenheit. Scientist are more than 90% certain that human activities' such as burning fossil fuels and deforestation, is the primary cause of increases of the greenhouse effect. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) indicates that the global surface temperature is likely to rise a lowest of 2 to...

global warming is cause by humans

megha123

Scientists have concluded that most of the observed warming is very likely due to the burning of coal, oil, and gas. This conclusion is based on a detailed understanding of the atmospheric greenhouse effect and how human activities have been tweaking it. At the same time, other reasonable explanations, most notably changes in the Sun, have been ruled out. The atmospheric greenhouse effect naturally keeps our planet warm enough to be livable. Sunlight passes through the atmosphere. Light-color...

Global Warming Exists

jh1234l
Rayze

I'll define some words to avoid semantics. Global warming: The rise in the average temperature of Earth's atmosphere and oceans since the late 19th century and its projected continuation. [1] Greenhouse gas: A gas in an atmosphere that absorbs and emits radiation within the thermal infrared range.[2] This is my actual argument: "However, since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the burning of fossil fuels has contributed to the increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from...

Man made global warming does not occur

pjmcgs95
tylersch96

My argument Is that man does not contribute in any significant way to global warming. This is not a debate as to whether or not global warming is happening today, it is a debate as to whether man contributes to the warming of the earth in a significant way. First round will be stating of position only. Actual debate starts in second round. Total of four rounds (three with actual debate)....
