This research shows that many people think just burning fossil fuel is releasing carbon dioxide but in reality it’s creating it. Since the Sun is also a great source of solar radiation many studies have been done to see if the sun alone is causing this but there has been a catch. The Sun would heat up all layers of Earth, but scientists have found that the upper most layer is cooler than the

Global warming is real and caused primarily by human activities 4 lower layers of the Earth. This is due to the gases that trap heat such as carbon dioxide (NASA, 2019). The best ways to access the probabilities of this claim would be to “...transition to energy sources and products and services that do not release greenhouse gases, implement existing and novel technologies and practices to remove and store CO2 from the atmosphere, and adapt to unavoidable changes” (AGU, n.d). This would be a really good choice seeming that solar and electrical mechanisms are being introduced, and will find their way to replace the technologies we use to release greenhouse gases. “...restrictions on greenhouse emissions may include a market-based system such as a cap-and-trade program that limits a firm's total greenhouse gas output but allows a firm to purchase additional emissions credits” (Gale, 2020). This cap and trade program is something that is already coming into place. How it works is that cap is the amount of greenhouse gases allowed being emitted, and each year it gets lowered. The trade portion is the amount that can be bought and sold to limit the amount of emission as well. With reduction will come higher pricing on common goods, not to say it can also reduce the amount that we can invest in; “...reduce current production capacity, foreign investment, and household purchasing power, and they could also lead to higher prices on consumer goods” (Gale, 2020). My conclusion about this claim would be that humans have long started the burning of carbon dioxide and as a result of that global warming has started to begin ever since. Fallacies on this topic were hard to come by, but rhetoric were always something that came across when
