Among the most controversial topics

in physical science, global warming has received a great deal of attention

during the past decade. Given its great impacts on both humans and the

environment, lawmakers and scientists must weigh heavily the information that

they are presented. Explore this debate in more detail by evaluating both the

scientific basis of this phenomenon and the human role in global


Write a three to five (3-5) page

paper in which you:

  1. Compare and contrast natural

    versus anthropogenic climate changes. Include specific examples of


  1. Take a position as to whether or
