Tutor description

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 three to five (3-5) page paper in which you: Compare and contrast natural versus anthropogenic climate changes. Include at least two (2) specific examples of each. Take a position as to whether or not global warming is taking place. Provide three (3) lines of evidence to support your position. 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.

These several causes have resulted in melting ice of the worlds poles, rising ofsea levels, and mountains and violent rain storms resulting in submerging and over flooding ofworlds coastal areas and resulting migration of animal species; reduced animal metabolism, heatwaves leading to desertification, reduction of water availability, and agricultural food production,food insecurity, loss of biodiversity, and decreased animal health et cetera (R Ruedy & GRussell, 1988).Brief discussionThe Climate change is attributable to both anthropogenic and ecological factors. Inanthropogenic climate change, are known as human encouraged climate change, are some resultof greenhouse gases increased, including chlorofluorocarbons, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide,methane, increase in atmospheric aerosols, and great changes in land use, such as for creatingfarms cutting down of forests.
