Burning Fossil Fuels Renewable Energy Sources
2,292 wordsGlobal Warming Global warming is the warming near the earths surface that results when the earths atmosphere traps the suns heat. The earth is getting warmer. The changes are small, so far, but they are expected to grow and speed up. Within the next fifty to one hundred years, the earth may be hotter than it has been in the past million years. As oceans warm and glaciers melt, land and cities along coasts may be flooded. Heat and drought may cause forests to die and food crops to fail. Global wa...

Burning Fossil Fuels Burning Of Fossil Fuels
1,299 wordsIs it hot in here, or is it just me? That? s the question young Billy asked himself one excruciatingly hot day. The air was thick with humidity and the sweat poured off him like the rain of a heavy spring downpour as he delivered his mid-day papers in his hometown of Seattle. Normally, he would not have thought twice about this kind of heat. Normally, it isn? t 90 degrees in April. This isn? t a far-fetched idea cooked up by a lone scientist pouring over minute data. This could be a reality. The...

Burning Fossil Fuels Natural Greenhouse Effect
3,312 wordsThe Greenhouse Effect The greenhouse effect, as defined in the dictionary, is the effect produced as greenhouse gases allow incoming solar radiation to pass through the Earths atmosphere, but prevent most of the outgoing infrared radiation from the surface and lower atmosphere from escaping into outer space. Even though this process occurs naturally and has kept the Earths temperature about 60 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than it would otherwise be, current life on Earth could not be sustained with...

Burning Fossil Fuels Average Global Temperature
1,498 wordsGreenhouse Effect The greenhouse effect is a natural phenomenon that warms the earth and enables it to support life. Without it, the average temperature on earth would be around - 18 degrees C, instead of the current + 15 degrees C a frozen wilderness. It works on the same principles as the ordinary glass garden greenhouse, where glass allows light to get in, but does not allow for the heat to get out. This makes for a much higher temperature inside the greenhouse. On a planetary scale, similar ...
