Earth's average temperatures have risen by almost two degrees since the start of the 20th century. While this may seem minimal, it has already had devastating impacts on a global scale. It is agreed-upon by people on both sides of the aisle for this subject that greenhouse gas levels (carbon dioxide, methane, etc) in the atmosphere have increased significantly. However, whether this is a natural ebb and flow or a human-driven responsibility is contentious. YES, WE ARE RESPONSIBLE Standard arguments note that rising greenhouse gas levels are an immediate result of human activity like fossil fuel burning. It is contended that these increases have caused severe changes in climates such as loss of sea ice, global warming, rises in sea levels, more intense storms, and increased drought prevalence. It is challenged that there should be immediate action by all global parties to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, vital for the prevention of negative climate change effects. NO, WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE Typical arguments for this side note that human-produced and driven gas emissions are not prevalent enough to cause a substantial change in the climate of the earth, and that the globe is more than capable of absorbing these potential damages. People voicing this side of the debate also state that the global warming that has occurred over the past century is primarily a result of natural processes, like ocean currents and fluctuations in the heat from the sun WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS? What do you believe? Are humans a driving factor in this change in the global climate? Or do we play a more minor role overall and this is something to not be concerned about? Why do you believe that point?
