Global warming extent

The article "Arctic Wintertime Sea Ice Extent is among Lowest on record" by Marie Jose Vinas talks about the annual winter time peak. The arctic sea reached a maximum of 5.59 million square miles of ice surface cover making it the second lowest on record, only beaten by last year's record by 23,200 square miles. Annually, the ice in the Arctic thickens and thins over the year and the past 4 years have seen the Arctice ice cover diminish slowly.

Animals in danger of extinction!

I am sure that you, who are reading this essay, really love animals. I love animals too. They are so cute, and they make us happy or relaxed. However, some of them are in danger of extinction because of climate change. According to scientists’ research, two-thirds of wild animals will disappear from the earth by 2020 (Jacky, 2016). Today, I am going to talk about what the effects of global warming on animals are, and how to prevent it.

What will be the future of Adelie Penguins?


The news article “Penguins die in 'catastrophic' Antarctic breeding season” by BBC talks about a tragic incident that is happening in the Arctic due to global warming. It was reported that “all but two Adelie penguin chicks starved to death” due to the high amount of ice that appeared late in the season and as a result, the chicks could not find food to eat. The adults did survive as they are better prepared and are able to walk further in order to find food for themselves.

Effects of Ocean Acidification


 What is Ocean Acidification?

Global warming is a term that most individuals are vaguely familiar with. However, the effects, and the rate that global warming is increasing, as well as how much It endangers the environment is not something that a large majority are aware of. For instance, due to global warming and the rapid increase of carbon emissions, the acidification of the ocean is dropping at an alarming rate.

Issue of Ocean Acidification

Conifers Warm Up the Atmosphere


Global warming is becoming a large issue in today’s world. All over the planet, media cover the news on the latest environmental catastrophe and on high temperatures setting new records. Many of these phenomena can be related to a common factor; there are more and more greenhouse gases being released in the atmosphere. Many countries try to reduce their emissions, and a way to accomplish this is with the mass planting of trees, conifers particularly, on land that used to be occupied by broadleaved trees. I live in Quebec (Canada) and it is quite frequent.

When Acetaminophen Isn’t Strong Enough to Stop the Earth’s Fever


Global warming has been a popular subject discussed worldwide for decades. Many people still deny it, but proofs are there to support the recent occurrence phenomenon. The latest one? The year 2015 has seen the highest global temperatures yet on record, qualifying it as being the warmest year since the recording of yearly temperatures began, as new data revealed by the United States’ and the United Kingdom’s meteorologists suggests.

A record we don’t want to break another time


2015 was an unprecedented year for weather. We all noticed it: the weather was more than unusual, it was alarming. We knew something was going on with Mother Nature, but we did not know how bad the situation actually was. Then, at the beginning of 2016, we knew what was happening.

Deadly Bubbles of the Sea


             The ocean holds many unknowns; from undiscovered species to depths which humans cannot reach. There is so much more to explore. The ocean also contains evidence of earth’s history. Geology often allows for understanding of past climates, processes, and orientations of the earth’s continents. Today there are many environmental concerns; the largest being global warming and climate change.  Global warming is affecting seasonal changes through the warming of large bodies of water and increasing the process of ice melt.

We're heating up, and it's our fault

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has release a report on climate change. To summarize the report as briefly as I can: climate change is real and it’s our fault. Still, there are some people still in denial.
