Sound science has proven that global warming is a credible threat. The latter has caused many problems such as heat waves and scorching summers that bake more pollution into asthma- inducing smog (Deitchman, 2014). Other problems that scientists associate with global warming include floods. According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, there has been a significant rise in the sea levels. Many organizations that deal with issues related to health have issued statements that prove this notion. They include the American Meteorological Society, American Physical Society, and the country's Geophysical Union. Although the Clean Air Act has played a major role in reducing levels of air pollution, the US still needs to adopt additional policies and laws to do away with all the problems associated with greenhouse gas emissions. The policies should ensure that there is no burning of fuel completely. The government should also come up with policies that will help it to identify the exact tax rates that will ensure companies do not emit the greenhouse gases. Some individuals do not understand the problems associated with the global warming. Consequently, state governments should put in place measures to create effective awareness.

    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.

    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.
