Most Americans Accept the Climate Changes: It is a New RealityFebruary 1, 2019
Global warming is no joke, and for most Americans they have experienced its effects with climate changes. These climate changes have happened in areas where it is abnormal to have hurricanes or tornadoes yearly.
Climate Change with Carbon Dioxide Levels
Climate change is on the brain of most Americans because it is effecting their lives personally. Global warming is an epidemic, which is severely affecting our environment by the rising of carbon dioxide levels. In effect, warming of our environment is occurring where winters are shorter and summers are longer.
Natural disasters are happening because of unusual weather patterns. The atmospheric greenhouse is changing because air pollution and the burning of fossil fuels is changing the carbon dioxide levels. They are increasing and combining with oxygen creating a dangerous environment.
Hurricanes and Wildfires
When the earth becomes warmer it changes everything, and places that are supposed to be colder are warmer. About half think global warming made the 2018 wildfires in the Western U.S. (50%) and/or hurricanes Florence and Michael (49%) worse. Climate Change in the American Mind survey finds that 69 percent of Americans say they’re “somewhat worried” about global warming.
The Personal Effects
The proportion of Americans who are very worried about global warming has more than tripled since its lowest point in 2011. Increasing numbers of Americans say they have personally experienced global warming and that the issue is personally important to them It has become quite personal when homes are destroyed and lives are changed because of global warming. Global warming is not just two words that don’t mean anything. In fact, global warming is real and most Americans know this to be true because of the personal effects.
