Global warming
global warming Climate change is neither new nor unusual. Throughout the history of the earth, the average surface temperature, climate and greenhouse gas concentrations have changed, sometimes gradually other times quite sharply. During the past 10,000 years the earth has been in an interglacial period with a fairly stable climate, surface temperature, and greenhouse gas concentration1. The problem that has arisen in recent times is when scientists analyze the past 150 years, especially the las

Geology fo mars Geology of Mars by Luke Justis Mars is the planet that is the closest geologically to our own. Still we know little about the planet. All the information that we have is from what we see. We can speculate about the geology of the planet but we will never know for sure what the planet is really made of until we physicallygo there. The information is all from NASA sites or NASA related sites. Mars red color leads us to believe that the planet has large amounts of iron. This red co

Climate Change Over the past years most individuals have become acutely aware that the intensity of human and economic development enjoyed over the 20th century cannot be sustained. Material consumption and ever increasing populations are already stressing the earth’s ecosystems. How much more the earth can take remains a very heated issue. Here a look at the facts sheds some very dark light. In 1950, there were 2.5 billion people, while today there are 5.8 billion. There may well be 10 billion

Pluto
Pluto In the outer limits of our solar system there is a planet unlike any other, Pluto. Pluto was discovered in February of 1930 by an American astronomer, Clyde Tombaugh. It is the only planet to have been discovered by an American. All though we have known of the existence of Pluto for over thirty years now, there are still many mysteries surrounding this celestial body. Being the farthest planet has made it difficult to study Pluto, Adding to the obscurity of this strange planet is that the

Climate Change (term Paper) Summary: This paper looks at the controversial issue of climatic change. In particular, it develops the question of if and why earth\'s climate is changing? The roles of man, naturally occurring trends, and earth\'s cycles are considered, and an outlook for what can be expected in the near and distant future is given. ‘The uneasiness of modern man arises from a rupture between himself and nature that leaves him homeless within the universe...\' William Barrett Intro

Mars Mars would make a lousy host for the Winter Olympics. Yes, there\'s the lack of air to consider. But more important, Martian snow turns out to be rock hard. Worse, it is melting away at an alarming rate. In fact, Mars may be in the midst of a period of profound climate change, according to a new study that shows dramatic year-to-year losses of snow at the south pole. It is not yet clear, though, if the evidence of a single year\'s change represents a trend. But the study provides a surprisi

This gas has properties that allow it to sustain and hold in heat, which in turn warms the planet (EIA, 2004). Carbon, the primary component of carbon dioxide; is also the essential molecule for life and is the most basic building block found in all organic compounds.

Fall of French
Fall of French With the melting of the ice on the riverways of Canada, Governor Vaudreuil and the Chevalier Maréchal de Lévis finalized their plans for an attempt to retake Quebec. The winter had been spent in the making of equipment needed for the army. Now, it was April 15th, and the river below Montreal could be navigated once again. On that day, two ships were loaded with the equipment and ammunition and set sail. These vessels were then to meet with others along the way carrying troops. At
