Global warming is a topic that will be highly debated forever. For those of you who know of global warming but are unaware of what global warming truly is then let us provide you with a definition. The dictionary defines global warming as, "an increase in the earth's average atmospheric temperature that causes corresponding changes in climate and that may result from the greenhouse effect." Read NASA's explanation of the greenhouse effect.
The consensus amongst those in the scientific community is that global warming is currently occurring and that it was all initiated by our actions. The major focus is on the increased concentrations of such things as greenhouse gases like nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide can be found in such items as pop, fire extinguishers and baking powder when heated. Nitrous oxide is found in aerosol spray cans, cooking spray, and whipping cream spray cans, which are all items that can be used in your piece of real estate property.
The high volume of greenhouse gases and burning of fossil fuels is what scientists believe to be two of the main causes of global warming. There are some people out there who don't believe that global warming exists at all and that it's just one big hoax. It's kind of hard to argue against global warming being real because there is so much evidence to support global warming and there are so many examples of human activities that have helped change the earth's climate, in a bad way. From adding nitrous oxide to super cars to making wine with dry ice that contains carbon dioxide to using aerosol cleaning tools that have chemicals in them that are harmful to the earth in a dental clinic like Sunrise.

There is a lot of attribution out there that recent climate change, or global warming, is because of human activities. However, that hasn't stopped some people, even scientists, from arguing the opposite and insisting global warming isn't real. One popular argument when it comes to not believing in global warming, or saying it's not our fault, is that global warming is actually caused by the sun. The people who believe in this argument base their opinion on the warming of Mars. If Mars is warming, that means Earth isn't warmed by human activities but by the sun's changes. It's an interesting theory but one that many don't take much stock in.
At the end of the day you have to ask yourself the question of whether or not you think global warming is real. There are a lot of research materials you can check out to help you formulate your answer. Just try not to get too caught up in research that you forget to buy diapers for your newborn.
