Global Warming; Cause and Effect
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go a whole winter without even seeing snow? Well the way the atmosphere is heating up today you just might experience this kind of event in the future I chose to do my cause and effect paper on global warming because I believe it has a major impact on humans, not only today, but especially in the future. In this paper I am going to explain the causes and the effects of global warming and how it will impact our lives in the long run. Greenhouse gases are gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone, and play an important roll in the earth's atmosphere. Without them it would really be cold, but that does not seem to be the problem in today's life.

That year was the last time we have seen over four inches of snow total in a winter. Before that year, it would start snowing each year no later than December. Since that year, we are lucky if it even snows a total of several inches all winter. And if it does snow then it is delayed until mid January. By then, as soon as it snows, it melts because of the warmer temperature or the sun. That is how global warming has affected not only me but everyone else in Stokes County. In conclusion, global warming as a whole, has an overall effect on the global community and effects the weather and precipitation many regions used to receive, ultimately changing climates completely. There are many causes of global warming going on right now all over the world. Greenhouse gases, human deforestation, and aerosols are all the leading causes of this, and once the world's atmosphere is destroyed there are going to be major consequences such as major temperature increase. But the one major effect that global warming has in the universe is tremendous amounts of flooding. It is predicted that if the atmosphere continues to heat up and flooding continues, that New York City will be under water in sixty years (Discovery Channel). So it is up to us, the people, to control and slow down the causes of global warming. We may not be able to stop the rise of global warming but we can help prevent it by slowing down the deforestation, find newer ways for aerosol sprays, and
