Woods 2 Brennan Woods Dr. Siddiqui Biology 101 G Lab 28 October 2009 For many years believers and scientist have argued about the causes of global warming. The problem is complicated because believers claim that man is the cause of global warming and if alone attended to we will destroy the earth until it is unfixable. An increase in livestock, decrease rainforest, and the continued growth in industries that depend on hydrocarbon are all contributing factors in global warming. Skeptics believe that the climate change is a natural thing, and that man’s effect is largely overrated by scientist. One fact that has proven true is that for several years, the earth's temperature is rising. The problem remains in deciding what if anything we can do about it. Global warming is occurring for many reasons. Some people believe the earth's climatic changes are due to the fact that the earth is just simply getting older, others believe that the greenhouse effect is the result. The greenhouse effect is a naturally occurring cycle that is responsible trapping heat in the earth's surface and keeping the planet warm. The green house affect receive its name from the way green houses work. In a greenhouse cycle sunlight passes through the roofs and walls and strikes the objects inside-plants, flowerpots, tables, and so forth. These objects absorb energy from sun which then become warmer and then give off energy themselves in the form of heat. Even though the green house traps majority of the heat inside, small of amounts does sneak out. In some ways, the earth functions rather like a greenhouse except on a much larger scale (goalfinder.com).Although the greenhouse effect has only recently

Without the greenhouse effect, the earth would be too cold for living. In the last couple of decades there has been a worldwide increase in carbon dioxide, largely as a result of the burning of fossil fuels. The greenhouse effect may be the most serious environmental problem the human race has ever experienced, for this reason scientists around the world are working hard to achieve a better understanding of the greenhouse effect, to predict the
