Andrew Rapaport Econ 367 Natural Climate Cycles Are Not The End Of The World Since the 1980’s most of the United States has seen a varied assortment of severe weather, there have been countless wildfires, and electric bills have gone up in efforts to cool homes and businesses. In some areas where fresh water is at a premium officials have banned washing cars and limiting which days that lawns can be watered. Many people, everyday citizens and policy makers alike have come to believe that our planet is facing a period of catastrophic global warming. For years now we have been hearing about how the burning of fossil fuels is releasing dangerous amounts of chemicals into the atmosphere, mostly carbon dioxide, which is causing the Earth to warm up. What everyone seems to be ignoring is the fact that the Earth has steadily been warming up since the last ice age and even within this warm up there have been cycles of climate change within it. The human race is very resilient and one of the main reasons why humans have come so far is because of the ability to adapt.

    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.
