Research Thesis 1 Running Head: GLOBAL WARMING Global Warming: Immediate Action Research Thesis 2 Introduction There are various issues and topics that need to be addressed as soon as possible for the  welfare of society and communities as a whole. By considering the current and potential impact  of these issues, global warming is chosen to focus on. Global warming is occurring at pace that is not good for the earth including plant, animal and people. The thesis for this research is “Global  Warming is a problem that needs immediate attention”. Furthermore, to defend this thesis on  global warming, several strong arguments will be covered in this research paper. Restatement of  thesis will be also developed to conclude the research with some key points.  Arguments Global warming is perceived as theory or just premises by people due to which, it is not  taken seriously. At the same time, it is not avoidable that global warming is actually causing rise  in temperature of earth (Houghton, 2004). This rise in temperature is resulting into loss of plants  and animals gradually. It is so, as the capacity of plants and animals with temperature rise  decreases that causing them to die. Due to loss of plants and animals, there is automatic loss of  food obtained from these two sources. So, it can be argued that global warming is causing  problem for the survival of human beings by destroying natural resources and living organisms  on earth. Therefore, it needs to be addressed with some immediate attention and actions.  Global warming is also resulting into increase in sea level that covers areas of low land  islands. As a result of this, plants, animals and people live on these islands are facing problems  of habitant and survival simultaneously (Silverstein, Silverstein, Silverstein & Nunn, 2009). So,  it can be argued that global warming is causing imbalance in the natural environment that is not  Research Thesis 3 good for earth. The effects of global warming are catastrophic on earth that is causing the planet  to become hotter day by day. Hence, if these changes are not addressed immediately with some  proactive actions and strategies, these will surely affect life on earth. There are various factors or  reasons that are causing global warming on earth. First is emission of greenhouse gases. These  gases collect light and heat from sun and when emitted in the air result into too much heat on  earth that causes rise in temperature (Hansen, Sato, Ruedy, Lacis & Oinas, August 29, 2000).  Second is burning of fossil fuels to generate electricity. The burning of these fossil fuels  like coal, oil, petroleum etc also results into development of chemicals that are polluting water,  air and land drastically. Third is industrial activities aimed for growth through non standard  industrial methods by human beings. These activities are also causing imbalance in natural  environment that is changing climate and increasing temperature of earth. Furthermore, it can be  argued that increased use of machines in every area of life from building to manufacturing also  causes global warming. It is so, as these machines are powered by burning fuels that result into  the emission of CO2 and other waste materials. CO2 with other waste products and gases collect  heat and light from sun those results into warmer earth (Cox, Betts, Jones, Spall & Totterdell,  November 2000). Use of increased energy in modern lifestyle and pollution is another source that is causing global warming. For example, light, TV watch, listening music, washing clothes, riding car,  heating meal in microwave, using air conditioner and playing video games. All these activities  are causing emission of greenhouse gases that are responsible for temperature rise on earth. If  these activities are not controlled immediately by people, these will surely interrupt life by  making the earth hotter to live. Along with this, it can be also argued that due to global warming, Research Thesis 4 winters are getting milder and summers are getting hotter. Sea levels are rising and Glaciers are  melting (Oxlade, 2006). So, these are the evidence or one can say warning signs of devastating  effects of global warming on natural composition of earth that has to be addressed with  immediate action plans. It can be also argued that if the increasing sea level is not stopped or handled, it could  flood coastal cities across the world. It can be also observed that frequency of storms, flooding  and violent winds has increased from past trends. There is also danger of wildlife specific  survival due to changes occurring in their habitat (Silverstein, Silverstein, Silverstein & Nunn,  2009). If global warming is not addressed immediately, it could turn farmlands of today into  deserts of tomorrow. All these effects have to be stopped now before the global warming gets out of control. To do so, government treaties and regulatory bodies aimed to limit the emission of  greenhouse gases and CO2 have to take actions to stop global warming. It can be said that the  longer it will take to address the global warming, the harder it will be to keep the things balanced for human life on earth. To handle global warming, planting trees, recycling waste, reducing  unnecessary use of machinery, ensuring environment pollutant free etc are several suggestions  that have to be taken by people to immediately stop global warming and its drastic effects on  their life. Conclusion It can be inferred from above arguments and presented evidences that global warming is a problem that needs to be handled immediately to ensure balance in natural environment. It can be also stated that to keep the life sustainable on earth, it is vital for people and nations to work over this issue with immediate outlook. It is not too late to control global warming, so there is need to  Research Thesis 5 wake up and adopt all possible means to reduce the emissions of pollutants and waste materials  that cause rise in temperature level of earth. Along with this, by using non energy fossil fuels, it  is also possible to address the issue of global warming.  Research Thesis 6 References Cox, P.M., Betts, R.A., Jones, C.D., Spall, S.A. & Totterdell, I.J. (November 2000). Acceleration of global warming due to carbon­cycle feedbacks in a coupled climatemodel. Nature,  408, 184­187.  Hansen, J., Sato, M., Ruedy, R., Lacis, A. & Oinas, V. (August 29, 2000). Global warming in the twenty­first century: An alternative scenario. PNAS, 97 (18), 9875­9880.
