Global warming definition: a gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth’s atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and other pollutants. (Michael Shnayerson, Vanity Fair)
Weather is the day-to-day state of the atmosphere, and its short-term variation in minutes to weeks. People generally think of weather as the combination of temperature, humidity, precipitation, cloudiness, visibility, and wind. …Climate is the weather of a place averaged over a period of time, often 30 years.
(John Fisher, The New American)
Man made: This article was all about how the media was downplaying human effect on global warming. The writers of this article believed that people need to face the facts and realize what we are doing to the climate change. She continued saying that the media is a huge problem because of the fact that they deny trying to hide the truth from the public. (John Fisher, The New American)
Natural: This article was about science and their discoveries about how climate change has affected us and the earth. The first blame goes to the ozone layer being depleted allowing more and more sunlight and more exposure to warmth. They continue to say it does not matter about car exhaust or people smoking, because it should not have this much of an effect this early. They say global warming and major climate change will happen on its own whenever mother nature decides. (Michael Shnayerson, Vanity Fair)
The article about how global warming is man made is more reputable because it gave me specific dates of when it was published and the volume and issue numbers. It was written by John Fisher, who is a doctor, and it was published more recent than the other article.
I think the natural process is the correct one, because I do not see how climate could be changing this fast from things that have been happening for over 100 years. Overall health and pollution has not changed a lot, so that leads me to believe that we have barely any control over it and it is really up to mother nature.
