Eli Quinn Summary of Multiple Sources 9-28-06 Word Count: 1,308 The Mystery of Global Warming The discussion and debates of the potential catastrophe of global warming has gotten to an all time high. Global warming is the gradual heating of the planet as the result of human activity. Researchers from all over the planet have been working on studies and observations of our planet to come up with models and theories involving global warming. I have chosen three different articles dealing with the truths and false assumptions of global warming. First off, I chose 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. I will use these three sources to compare opinions from the researchers involved in each of their arguments dealing with the potential catastrophes to come from global warming and how soon it will be before these effects are to harm the planet.
