The earth is operating in specifically complicated but fully effective procedures that enable it to withstand lengthened time of being reused over and over by humans from one generation to another. For centuries, the earth has proven itself full of vibrancy; an evident element that leaves humans in awe as they discover procedures and natural systems that make the world ‘go round’. However, an alarming series of data has been collected by scientists and environmental experts that create a distinct source of concern for people living within the present conditions of development (Choi, et al, 2005). The existence of global warming and the evidences pointing out to the effects it leaves the earth specifically gains the attention of the world today.
The question on whether or not such situation is manmade has been debated upon over time. Notably, such debate has gone on for years; however, some still remain at a much unsupported stand believing that the earth is just going through a phase of change and that it does not have anything to do with manmade operations. On the other hand, scientific proofs say otherwise. In the discussion that follows, a distinction on how global warming occurs and why it is further developing through time shall be given attention to (Choi, et al, 2005). This presentation aims to prove that manmade global warming does exist and that it should serve as a call for attention on the part of everyone living on earth, especially on the part of those who has the capacity to change matters and influence others to take a better stand in improving the community.
What is Global Warming?
Global warming is closely identified with the emergence of the greenhouse effect theory. Relatively, this indicates the condition by which the earth’s temperature rises because of the supposed trapping of the greenhouse emissions within the earth’s atmosphere (Emmanuel, 2005). With such emissions trapped, the earth’s systems has then no choice but to retain the emissions thus resulting to the warming up of the atmosphere; this could be imagined through comparing the situation as to how a car’s windshield traps solar energy inside the vehicle causing the insides of a car usually feel warm.
It is as if the earth is having fever. Like a normal fever, this particular earthly condition is caused by something and that something could be accounted to come from different factions of operations that are dedicated to convincingly determining the impact of developmental procedures that humans embrace to be necessary towards improving the living condition of the society. Some others say that this particular occurrence is natural and should not be feared. Environmental researchers have been trying over and over again, the chance to see the possibility of the earth’s system to be simply [rebooting] or refurnishing itself (Hansen, et al, 2005). Likening the situation to an earthquake, some environmental theorists argue that not all systems and operations of the earth’s natural adjustments are pleasant; some, like the earthquake, are deadly and highly disturbing however it should not be feared as much nor should it cause panic among people.
Nonetheless, the other differentiating faction in the community believes otherwise, and they too have evidences that present the factual background of such belief. Through thoroughly observing particular conditions in the environment and cross referencing them to the changing conditions of human living and human attitude, scientists and environmental observers have found out a startling fact regarding the involvement of humans on the developing condition of the earth’s atmosphere and how particularly determined activities and manmade systems dedicated to supporting global industrial and communications development actually contribute to the deadening situations that the earth faces at present.
Developments and the Environment
However, to be able to manufacture such inventions, the exploitation of raw materials excavated from the earth is necessary. Huge companies in the communication industry and the automobile industry, hire research experts to explore the different regions of the earth where they could likely get the raw materials they need for their production procedures. Once locations are found, extracting the materials commence. Most often than not, even though there are legal rules applied in the extraction of such materials, money-talk wins against legal sanctions, hence putting such locations and their environmental integrity in danger. To some businesses, such conditions are simply necessary for the sake of development.
Farmlands, mountainous areas, and other plainly defined landforms are currently being bought by business entities and are turned into industrialized areas dedicated to manufacturing and commercial areas where businesses are expected to develop. Business organizations around the world embrace development as their ‘way of living’; with this in mind, these individuals seek to create measures to make sure that they are able to make the best out of their assets. Relatively, this includes the expansion and enlargement of their organizations which includes building several establishments that would generate profit for them. As a result, agricultural areas are slowly decreasing in number, larger areas are becoming dedicated to immediate profit generating ‘facilities’ and money machines.
Such transformation often hurt the productivity of the land areas including those surrounding them. Considerably, such operations make it hard for the said lands to perform well as they are expected. The effects of the situation follow a chain reaction that distinctively indicates the condition by which land areas are becoming weaker especially in being able to provide the environment with the balance it needs. With such transformation also comes the reduction of the areas integrity in supporting natural development and natural changes that are necessary to renew the capacity of the earth to perform for the balance intended to make it easier for the environment to take assumptive ways of the adjustments needed to renew the environment’s integrity. Along with transportation comes the lessened number of trees that are able to defend nature from being completely denuded from the specific effects of pollution; floods become a common trend among urban areas which render the water systems of such areas incapable of functioning fully.
Factories and Manufacturing Facilities
Among the facilities that are established in transformed locations are factories and manufacturing facilities. Relatively, these areas produce waste materials in tons of measures. Others even release toxic waste that cannot be fully contained within their waste areas; most of these elements flow to the land areas surrounding the facilities and through the water systems. In history, such conditions have causes the health status of the resident in such areas to plummet down to terrorizing situations. Nevertheless, it is assumed by humans that because of the advancements they have imposed especially in the aspect of releasing toxic waste from factories and other manufacturing facilities that they have already won the fight against improper waste disposal. However, history has it that the records of several waste disposal problems have occurred relatively and killed millions of people and other creatures as well as render particular land areas incapable of regaining integrity and the capacity to develop accordingly to produce what they are supposed produce for the needs of the people and other living creatures.
Microwave Radio Frequencies Theory
Imagine living in a microwave oven; the system of this particular home appliance specifically presents a great picture on what is happening in the globe today. Relatively, a microwave oven uses micro-heat-waves to heat up the food in it; through trapping in the heat inside the appliance, the food is warmed as well. The advanced way of communication that is embracing the society today, it could be understood how the need for systems that would send out signals all throughout the distant lands of the earth is a necessary path for development (Hoyt, et al, 1993). Relatively though, these radio wave reflection and refraction require a distinct production microwave radio frequencies that make it possible for such communication connections to occur. The fast travel of such frequencies produce dramatic developments that make it easier for people to communicate and use the systems like the internet. These radio wave frequencies work in the same way the heat waves in a microwave oven works; in such a simple picture, this illustration shows how global warming develops and how it is likely responsible for the distinct consideration by which greenhouse effect occurs.
The Earth’s Capacity to Heal Itself
Observe how small plants just spur out from the soil out from nowhere [no one planted it there, no one tended to it] and yet it grows into a luscious bush providing habitat for small creatures and giving them sustenance as needed. Relatively, this proves how much the earth is able to heal itself, to create a plantation needed by the ecosystem that exists in it. This is the reason why the Amazon continues to become one of the most probable sources of new plantations that spur out from the land. Its environmental integrity specifically allows for new sets of plantations to develop accordingly.
These plantations intend to support the ecosystem existing in the area. Relatively, the balance occurring for the coexistence of elements and creatures altogether in the area is necessary to provide distinct support to the life of those residing in the area. However, since the effect of the developmental operations especially involving radio wave frequencies affects the whole world, it is expected that even the Amazonian areas are to be affected by such situation thus specifically giving a particular challenge to the retaining capacity of the area to protect its integrity.
The natural ways by which the earth regains its strength specifically makes a distinct implication on how the earth is likely [programmed] to reset to make sure that its capacity to produce becomes replenished every time. Considerably though, such conditions of adjustment need to be undisturbed for everything to occur in complete competence. It takes time for the earth to regain strength; it takes time for it to renew its systems of production. However, with the relative time used by humans to improve and embrace development accordingly, humans are affecting such conditions of adjustment that the earth takes into account in a dramatic and critical manner.
What is Currently Happening?
Basing from the discussion herein, it could be realized that somehow, the assumption of the idea behind global warming being a natural way of the earth’s procedure in determining adjustment for the sake of replenishing its resources and its capacity to produce may be well supported through the earth’s history of activities. However, the intense activity of humans especially dedicated towards development specifically makes such procedure rather hard to accomplish. Giving that such procedures require time, it is essential that the entire environment support the whole process of adjustment.
Humans are not likely to stop the procedures of development that they are embracing. Considerably, it s because of this particular attitude that even though the earth might attempt to rejuvenate, to accomplish a particular process of redeveloping its operations for the sake of regaining strength towards making changes in its actual resources, it might not be able to complete the cycle it needs to consider since the activities of humans towards industrialization that damages natural resources affect the procedure in much larger context. Imagine a painful infection in a the skin that is repetitively exposed to infecting elements, it will never be able to heal naturally if it does not stop being directly exposed to such damaging substances and elements; the same thing is true with the earth’s surface and atmosphere (Hansen, et al, 2005). No matter how effective the natural procedures of development and rejuvenation may be, it will not be enough to make a distinct impact on how natural resources are to be regained accordingly.
Overall, the context of this discussion does not completely dismiss the other section of the debate that suggests that the existence of global warming might not be completely manmade. True, the systems that the earth takes into account especially in the option of rejuvenating and developing systems for a better process of supporting life might take definitely distinct procedures that might not be as pleasant. Take note the occurrence of earthquakes; this is an unavoidable process the earth takes into account in relation to adjustment of land areas. The effects at present though are more devastating than in the past centuries due to the works and attitudes of humans towards nature. Nature is supposedly able to support such adjustments accordingly, however the transformed areas where buildings and residential areas are already situated become highly affected by such occurrences. If global warming is then considered unavoidable performance of the earth’s process of rejuvenation, its completion would be highly devastating to human generations at present due to the human activities that make such procedures hard to contend with on the part of the earth’s capacity to revive itself. The conditions of industrialization that humans have embraced through the years make it hard for nature to regain the balance needed for it to rejuvenate. These developments made by humans are specifically able to distinctively impact the development of the earth in restoring its integrity in supporting life; hence, this calls for action on the part of humans today.
