Eli Quinn Summary of Multiple Sources 10-10-06 Word Count: 1,376 The Battle of Global Warming The discussion and debates of the potential catastrophe of global warming has reached an all time high. Global warming is the gradual heating of the planet as the result of human activity (Hughes). Researchers all over the world have been working on studies and observations of our planet to come up with models and theories involving global warming. In the following, there are three different articles that deal with the truths and assumptions about global warming. To start off, it’s an article written by, Geoffrey Hughes, titled Global Warming and the Threat of Ecological Catastrophe . The contents within this article describe what global warming is, potential disasters that may come from the climate change, and ways to stop the gradual heating of the Earth. The next article is one written by, Richard A. Anthes et al, titled Hurricanes and Global Warming – Potential Linkages and Consequences , which discusses the potential consequences that may occur in the future due to global warming. This source has models, graphs, and observations backing up their stand on global warming. The last article I chose was titled, Reply to Hurricanes and Global Warming – Potential Linkages and Consequences , written by Roger Pielke Jr. et al. While some researchers and writers believe that global warming is a for sure threat, like Geoffrey Hughes, others, think that you need scientific facts before making such an assumption, such as Richard A. Anthes et al and Roger Pielke Jr. et al. Global warming began about 200 years ago with the Industrial Revolution when humans found a way to create large amounts of energy by burning fossil fuels (Hughes).

This article notes that there is no longer any serious doubt that there is global warming from human activity. Rapidly melting glaciers and ice sheets at both ends of the world could raise ocean levels by four to six meters in coming centuries. More frequent and violent hurricanes are predicted, with the continuing fossil fuel burning only making these problems worse and creating new conditions that result from this effect (Hughes).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
