What do scientists believe global warming is caused by?
Most scientists believe that global warming is largely caused by human beings and the way they/we run industry and transport by burning fossil fuels.
Global warming is caused by the increase in the amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
Greenhouse gases (in this case) interact with infrared radiation. Visible and more energetic light passes through them from the Sun, heats the Earth's surface, then the greenhouse gases prevent free flow of radiant heat back to space.
Subsequent work has shown that the temperature rise up to 1940 was mainly caused by some kind of natural cyclical effect, not by the still relatively low CO2 emissions. Thus, there can be more than just one cause of global warming, and they can even overlap. Nevertheless, global warming began to accelerate, and by the 1970s, a correlation with rising carbon dioxide levels was becoming too evident to ignore.
The majority of climate scientists now believe that rising greenhouse gas levels, particularly those of carbon dioxide, are the principal cause of global warming, and that human activities are a significant factor in causing those levels to rise.
Not necessarily, as belief in evolution and belief in global warming don't really have anything to do with each other. That said, a person who believes in evolution is probably more likely to believe in global warming, as they tend to listen to what scientists say, and scientists are the biggest advocates for global warming being real.
The vast majority of climate scientists agree that global warming is happening and also that it is being caused by the actions of mankind. The reasons for it are the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation. There are some scientists who accept that global warming is real but they think there are other causes for it not caused by man. A tiny number don't think there is any warming at all.
As with all issues, not ALL scientists believe in the link between human activity and global warming. However, the majority of scientists feel that the evidence for global warming is adequate to prove its existence. The majority of scientists who reaffirm the theory of global warming believe there is a link between climate and human activity. According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, "The Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)…
Many scientists believe that humans are part of the cause. Some have said its mostly caused by natural events (including the sun). A recent poll among 3,146 earth scientists (climatologists) found that 90 percent believe global warming is real, while 82 percent agree that human activity been a significant factor in changing mean global temperatures.
I believe that some people misunderstand the science and this misunderstanding leads them to believe that trained research scientists must be wrong in their conclusions. In other cases, I believe that some people simply do not want to know that global warming is caused by human activities. Imagine for example someone who thinks that his job could be at risk if we try to prevent any further global warming: such a person would very probably…
Scientists who are concerned about increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere believe global warming is caused by?
Among average people, most believe global warming is real and manmade, some believe it is a hoax created by the green energy industry and environmentalists, and a few think it is real, but not caused by us. The statistics prove it is real. I am personally quite sure that any climate scientist who claims global warming is not real or not caused by the burning of fossil fuels is lying on behalf of the companies…
Most scientists do believe in global warming. "There is broad scientific consensus", according to Scientific Organizations around the world that global warming is happening and it is being caused by humans. We burn too much fossil fuel (coal, oil and natural gas) thus releasing carbon dioxide into the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. We are also cutting down trees and forests all over the world. Forests absorb carbon dioxide and turn it onto oxygen.
This depends on your point of view. If the Oregon Report is correct (which I believe it is) there is no such thing as global warming, On the other hand, most climate scientists say that recent global warming and climate change are caused substantially by human activities, such as burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas), manufacturing cement and deforestation.
People believe that man is causing global warming and climate change by burning fossil fuels and cutting down the forests of the world. Other people believe that global warming is a natural event and man is not causing it. Most believe that it is partially a natural issue that man is having some unknown affect on as well. This is where most scientists fall. Other people believe that global warming is not happening at all.
What do scientists believe is happening to the earth because of the greenhouse effect and pollution?
First of all, two different polls of scientists working in the field of climate science found that 97 per cent believed that global warming is real and that human activity was a substantial cause. Statistically, the samples in both cases were large enough to provide confidence in their accuracy, but we need only take from these studies that most climate scientists believe that global warming is man made. A survey of Americans in 2009 found…
A lot of people believe humans are causing global warming because it is a true issue .. caused by people. We really are causing global warming, when we pollute and waste the earth dies just a bit, and with everyone on this glorious planet god has given us it really does build up. __________________________________________________________________ The fact is that we simply do not know if man is a significant contributor to global warming, or if he…
It depends what people you ask. Climate scientists who have studied global warming and published peer-reviewed papers on it; 97% of them believe that it is caused by human activity. If you ask the general public, that is, people who have not really studied it, then various polls give answers like 60% or so.
