Global Warming: Cause and Mitigation

Global Warming: Cause and Mitigation

Assignment 2: Global Warming: Cause and Mitigation

Among the most controversial topics in physical science, global warming has received a great deal of attention during the past decade. Given its great impact on both humans and the environment, lawmakers and scientists must heavily weigh the information that they are presented. Explore this debate in more detail by evaluating both the scientific basis of this phenomenon and the human role in global warming.

Write a 4 page paper in which you:

    1. Compare and contrast natural versus anthropogenic climate changes. Include at least two (2) specific examples of each.
    2. Take a position as to whether or not global warming is taking place. Provide three (3) lines of evidence to support your position.
    3. Assess two (2) current mitigation strategies for global warming, such as carbon sequestration, carbon taxing, clean coal technology, higher fuel efficiency standards, and so on. Analyze the effectiveness of this mitigation strategy, as well as its potential costs and policy implications.
    4. Speculate on the policy changes that you would propose to help stabilize global climate and determine the business sectors or nations that would be held to more strict standards if you were to implement your proposed policies.
    5. Use at least four (4) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Your report must follow these formatting requirements:

    1. Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
    2. Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

Answer preview………….

Global Warming is the increase of the average temperatures on Earth. It has become a significant political and scientific issue over the past decade. It is no longer a prediction, as it is actually happening. Undeniably, the average earth surface temperature has grown the past century by about 0.6°C with both the oceans and air warming (IPCC, 2001). The accumulation of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, mostly from the consumption of fossil fuels (oil, coal, and natural gas) and deforestation, caused by human beings is largely the substantial cause of global warming. However, conclusions that the global temperatures increases are due to the recent increase in greenhouse gases is more difficult, as the greenhouse gases are not the only factors influencing the Earth’s climate. Conversely, the.
