Is Climate Change Real & Human-Caused?

The ISCFC is all about reducing our individual and collective contributions to climate change.

But is climate change really happening? Is it mostly caused by human activity, including our production of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases?

In the United States and elsewhere, there are people who are not convinced by the science. But the great thing about science is that we use evidence to evaluate scientific questions. So what is the evidence related to climate change?

Are you or are you not convinced by the majority of climate scientists who say that climate change is real and largely human caused? Why are you convinced/not convinced? What evidence might change your mind one way or the other?

is climate change human caused?

climate change is 100% real but is it human caused? The main driver of climate change is the greenhouse effect. Many of these greenhouse gases occur naturally, but human activity is increasing the concentrations of some of them in the atmosphere. CO2 produced by human activities is the largest contributor to global warming and other greenhouse gases are emitted by human activity in smaller quantities.

absolutely, human activity is the main cause for climate change

It's definitely human caused. Natural climate change happens over millions of years, so organisms have a chance to evolve with it. The rate climate change occurs with carbon emissions will kill all of us.

I totally agree, we are responsible for 90% of all green-house gases in the atmosphere.

Yes I think humans are the main cause for climate change. Because at the rates CO2 levels are going up its definitely not all natural causes creating this.

Global warming in front of us

« The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S manufacturing non-competitive » Donald Trump.
As we know the former president of the US, Donald Trump, like many other people, don’t believe in global warming. But how can we not be aware of climate change? How can we have doubts on it?
Indeed, the recent wild fires in California which were more intense, the last floods in Germany and Belgium which were fatal contribute to illustrating and supporting the majority of climate scientists who say that climate change is real. As I live in a tropical island I can testify that summers are warmer and warmer. I believe that, for those who do not agree with science, they should observe and listen to their environment. Climate is much more than just scientist data
I am not saying that everyone must be 100% green but we can be more responsible by being conscious of global warming and adopt more respectful behaviors. I do believe that each human plays a major role in climate change so let’s play it in the right way.

Global warming and its effects

In nowadays society, the population growth, the excessive consumption of natural resources has led to the speedy destruction of the global environment. The principal causes are the widespread burning of fossil fuels including coal, oil and gas for electricity, heating, cooling and transportation, leading to the emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. As a result there is an effect on climate patterns, leading to long-term climate change that brings more storms, floods, droughts, forest fires and more extreme temperatures. Melting ice caps bring rising sea levels that threaten coastal cities, while greenhouse gas that are absorbed by oceans make them more acidic, threatening coral and marine life.
On our scale, we can change our consumption patterns to fight global warming by focussing on the three Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

Our Impact

Climate Change is a term we hear regularly which describes the rapid change and suffering the earth is experiencing. In recent years, however, this term has become highly political causing the crisis to be seen as insignificant. This is extremely unfortunate because according to NASA the earth's rising temperatures are a direct result of human activity. They refer to this as the "human greenhouse effect" which indicates the huge rise in greenhouse gas emissions. Before more modern human technology greenhouse gasses maintained at a healthy state because gasses weren't being released into the air frequently. Unfoutuanly, as Human technology developed Greenhouse gas emissions, increased dramatically resulting in a harmed atmosphere. This phenomenon is the exact reason why humans are guilty of Climate Change and the rapid change of environments across the world.

Climate Change

Climate Change is 100% real and human-caused.  When climate change occurs,  temperatures can increase dramatically. When the temperature rises, many different changes can occur on Earth. A warmer climate can bring changes that can affect our water supplies, agriculture, power and transportation systems, the natural environment, and even our own health and safety. These extreme climate increases and decreases are all caused by Human activities leading to greenhouse gases in the atmosphere over the last 150 years. Greenhouse gases are like a blanket around the Earth, trapping energy in the atmosphere and causing it to warm. This is called the greenhouse effect and it is natural and necessary to support life on earth. However, while greenhouse gases build up, the climate changes and result in dangerous effects on human health and ecosystems. People have adapted to the stable climate we have enjoyed since the last ice age which ended several thousand years ago.

Climate Change

Climate Change is very real and is definitely caused by the human population. Climate change is the change in usual weather, such as a change in temperature or amount of rain a place gets. Climate change is caused by the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is when greenhouse gases get trapped in the atmosphere, when they are there they trap the sun's heat and radiate it onto the earth's surface.
There are many things that contribute to climate change. A few big things are burning fossil fuels, transportation, and deforestation. When fossil fuels are burnt, lots of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, is released into the air, adding to the greenhouse effect.  Transportation, such as driving, flying in a plane, etc. is a big contributor, when using these types of transportation it burns fossil fuels, going back to my last point. Deforestation is also a big contributor because trees take in a lot of the carbon dioxide in our air and release a very small amount. When a large number of trees is cut down, way less carbon dioxide is being taken out of our air.
There are many things that I do in a day that contribute to climate change. I should try to do those things less and less every day. You should too, even though it may not completely stop climate change, it will be a start to slowing it down.

Climate Change

Climate change is very much real and the more people who ignore that truth the worse it'll become. Greenhouse gases are a huge contribution to climate change because it traps heat in the atmosphere. The burning of fossil for fuel is a big reason for greenhouse gases. People can reduce the rate of greenhouse gases everyday by using public transportation, biking, and walking because all these lower gas emissions.

Climate change

Climate change is a real thing, it is also a very important subject to our world's safety. It is human-caused, because of the cars, cow slaughter, and many more examples.

Climate Change

Climate change is a thing and people need to see that if climate change gets any worse then we aren't going to be able to fix it as easily as we could have years ago. If you look in earthling.com you can learn how to prevent climate change and even help with changing it in the future.

Is Climate Change Real & Human-Caused?

I think climate change is real and Human-caused. I know that I do a lot of things that contribute to climate change that I can stop doing. We can do little things that can help this cause, but there are also big things that we will need to change to help this cause. Burning fossil fuels for one is a big thing that we will need to change. Deforestation has got to stop as well. Forest are carbon sinks. They take more carbon in than they let back into the atmosphere which is good because the carbon levels in the atmosphere have increased. But cutting down so many trees will stop these carbon sinks. If we keep taking and not giving back there may not be anything left. If we cut down trees replant them but even then we are cutting down trees faster than they can grow. In order to stop climate change there first has to be a change in each and every one of our daily lives. Over the last century, the burning of fossil fuels has increased the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide. This is human-caused. The earth doesn't just naturally burn all of those fossil fuels. WE DID THIS. And now I'm only asking for you to recycle, use renewable energy sources, reduce your waste, use energy-efficient appliances. There are so many little things you can do right now. So please, we've waited long enough. Ensure that the generations after us will have an earth to live on. Thank you.

Climate Change real and Human Caused?

Yes Climate change is a real thing and humans have a lot to do with it. for example them temp of the world is increasing by burning fossil fuels, cutting down forests. This adds enormous amounts of greenhouse gases to those naturally occurring in the atmosphere, increasing the greenhouse effect and global warming.
