"Are Humans to Blame?"

To blame humans or not to blame humans for global warming, that is the question. Global warming is an increase in temperature worldwide. The report has noted, 11 out of the last 12 years have ranked among the warmest on record. CNN has stated that temperature changes have been noticed over the last 50 years, due the human activities. 90%-99% of daily human activities cause global warming. With this factor, scientists have predicted the temperature will increase 3.2 to 7.1 degrees Fahrenheit. Yes, humans are to blame for global warming because of population growth, deforestation, and the use of non-environmentally safe products. This worldwide issue must be addressed to everyone. 

First, the increase in population had a major effect on Global Warming. With more population comes the use of more cars, boats, planes, etc. These powered vehicles cause more CO2 to enter the air. Everyone is acknowledging that we need to make a change in our way of living. More cars and more planes are pouring enormous amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere. "Most global increases rare due to increases in carbon dioxide from fossil fuels," says CCNN. This is true, did think of all the times planes depart and land per day it really adds up. Then, when there are traffic people's car engines could be burning fuel for at least over an hour.

They can use up to 600 million gallons of gas, while just sitting in traffic. This is very common in many cities, worldwide. I found that the amount of fossil fuels that are burned during traffic translates to 7.5 million tons of carbon dioxide. A vehicle with the poor gas mileage contributes even more than regular cars do. Imagine all the transportation that occurs throughout the day keeps increasing as the population does. There will be so much carbon dioxide emissions that temperatures will increase by many degrees. We need to minimize our use of the items in order for our economy to avoid suffering. If we do not change our actions it could change our lives forever.

Second, deforestation had and still continue to have a tremendous effect on global warming. Deforestation is the process in which too many trees are being cut down. An example of this is in the Amazon Rainforest. Within twenty-six years it went from a dense thick layer of the green forest, to an empty looking area. When we are cutting down trees the prosses of photosynthesis cannot take place. Therefore large amounts of carbon dioxide are left in the air and there is less oxygen. These CO2 bonds interfere with the CO3 in the ozone.

Lastly, we use non-environmentally safe products. We use things such as hairspray, which is aerosols. Aerosols have been forming holes in the ozone layer for years. "We need o usee more environmentally friendly technologies." acknowledge Bush. An example of this is a hybrid car. A hybrid car runs mainly on sunlight, not oil. This way it is not burning tons of fossil fuels. It was the first time Bush had discusses this matter in a State of the Union address, so it must be getting serious. Bush had to confront this serious challenge of global changing climate due to using products like aerosols.

In conclusion, humans are to blame for global warming because of population growth, deforestation, and the use of non-environmentally safe products. We have support from many articles and even the president that we need to do something about our actions. Whether it is changing the products we use or reducing the number of fossil fuels we burn, it is up to us fix the problem we created. I encourage you to take a stand and address the problem, to let everyone know made our planets like this and our job to fix it
