Scientists attribute the global warming trend observed since the mid th century to the human expansion of the "greenhouse effect" 1 — warming that results when the atmosphere traps heat radiating from Earth toward space. Certain gases in the atmosphere block heat from escaping. Long-lived gases that remain semi-permanently in the atmosphere and do not respond physically or chemically to changes in temperature are described as "forcing" climate change. Gases, such as water vapor, which respond physically or chemically to changes in temperature are seen as "feedbacks. On Earth, human activities are changing the natural greenhouse.

Climate is the average of weather conditions over decades to centuries in a particular location. Records from Earth's geologic history show that the climate has changed both gradually and abruptly in the past, and that global temperatures and the concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are strongly correlated . Many of the concerns over human influences on climate are due to the significant emissions of greenhouse gases from human activities since the midth century [2,7].
Natural processes will always have strong effects on climate, but there is evidence that these greenhouse gas emissions, combined with other human activities such as aerosol emissions and land-use changes, are linked to the rapid warming that has been observed since the middle of the 20th century [2,3,4,7,8,9,10,11,12].
Since the start of the 20th century, average global temperatures have increased, with most of the warming occurring since the s [7,8,9].
The Earth system is a complex one, and it is not always easy to predict the precise effects of geological processes or human activities, particularly on geologically short timescales of years to decades. Geoscientists use historical measurements, data from the geologic record, and real-time data to constantly improve their understanding of the Earth system and to predict future climate changes due to both natural causes and human activities.

The Permitted Facilities Map shows all of the facilities permitted and regulated by the District. See this page for information on District activities relating to climate change. Calculate your personal greenhouse gas emissions on the Cool California state website , or on the U. Environmental Protection Agency website. This phenomenon is referred to as global warming, or global climate change. The atmosphere contains gases that trap heat; these are known as greenhouse gases. Greenhouse gases include carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, and others.
Author: John L. Members argued that engineers should address both mitigation of and adaptation to the changing climate, and work with scientists who are focusing on causes and predictions. The fact that the global climate is changing in response to human causes, especially emissions of greenhouse gases, is undeniable based on the scientific evidence NAS The important questions are 1 What are the most promising technical routes to mitigation of the changes? This issue of The Bridge presents timely articles relevant to these questions, and joins a series on related topics. Climate change is an example of unintended consequences of technology.
The Royal Society and the US National Academy of Sciences, with their Scientific information is a vital component of the evidence required for societies to make 2 How do scientists know that recent climate change is largely caused by.
The scientific community has reached a strong consensus that global temperatures are rising rapidly as a direct result of billions of tons of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions from human-made sources. The IPCC first expressed the scientific consensus that climate change is real and caused by humans in The latest observations illustrate the changes that are already underway. The observations show: increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations, rising air and ocean water temperatures, declines in the extent of arctic ice, and declining pH in ocean waters.
There is a strong scientific consensus that the Earth is warming and that this warming is mainly caused by human activities. This consensus is supported by various studies of scientists' opinions and by position statements of scientific organizations, many of which explicitly agree with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCC synthesis reports. Several studies of the consensus have been undertaken. This scientific opinion is expressed in synthesis reports , by scientific bodies of national or international standing, and by surveys of opinion among climate scientists. Individual scientists, universities, and laboratories contribute to the overall scientific opinion via their peer-reviewed publications , and the areas of collective agreement and relative certainty are summarised in these respected reports and surveys.
Моя просьба покажется вам безумной, - сказала она, заморгав красными глазами, - но не могли бы вы одолжить мне немного денег. Беккер посмотрел на нее в полном недоумении. - Зачем вам деньги? - спросил. Я не собираюсь оплачивать твое пристрастие к наркотикам, если речь идет об. - Я хочу вернуться домой, - сказала блондинка. - Не поможете .
Все внезапно осложнилось, пошло совсем не так, как он рассчитывал. Мелкая любезность, которую он оказал Стратмору, забрав личные вещи Танкадо, вылилась в поиски таинственного кольца, как в известной игре, где нужно находить спрятанные предметы. Дэвид только что позвонил Стратмору и рассказал о немецком туристе. Новость не обрадовала коммандера. Выслушав подробности, он долго молчал. Дэвид, - сказал наконец Стратмор мрачным голосом, - обнаружение этого кольца - вопрос национальной безопасности. Я возлагаю эту задачу на .
Она подняла голову. - Не поддающийся взлому алгоритм? - Она выдержала паузу. - Ах да… Я, кажется, что-то такое читала. - Не очень правдоподобное заявление. - Согласна, - сказала Сьюзан, удивившись, почему вдруг Хейл заговорил об. - Я в это не верю.
Его жена долго терпела, но, увидев Сьюзан, потеряла последнюю надежду.
