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

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

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)....

Global Warming Exists

The Earth is Warming We know the planet is warming from surface temperature stations and satellites measuring the temperature of the Earth's surface and lower atmosphere. We also have various tools which have measured the warming of the Earth's oceans. Satellites have measured an energy imbalance at the top of the Earth's atmosphere. Glaciers, sea ice, and ice sheets are all receding. Sea levels are rising. Spring is arriving sooner each year. There's simply no doubt - the planet is warming....

This is for the Offical DDO Tournament I. Full Resolution: Global warming has an anthropogenic cause. We are NOT debating whether it exists, but rather if it has an anthropogenic cause to its existance. Definitions: Global Warming: "Global warming is the rise in the average temperature of Earth's atmosphere and oceans since the late 19th century, and its projected continuation."[1] Anthropogenic: "Caused or produced by humans."[2] Cause: "A person or thing that acts, happ...

manmade activity is probably a significant cause of global warming

detractors from MMGW man made global warming, who say it's not ssignificant, and only a hoax, usually rely on sun flares and volanoes. essential facts. one is that studies have shown that the sun cycles have accounted for only a third of the warming that's occurred. the other is that the volcano theorists have never cited sources... and sources that can be found show that they produce only a small amout of heating. i've never seen any sources cited for the volcano theory, but here's wha...

Debate will start off with me stating my position (In short) then the PRO will put in his/her position in short. The position should be like a quick thesis statement. My position in SHORT: Global warming is a natural process with little to no influence from Humans....
