It may be a possibility that the Earth’s natural weather patterns are beginning to change as the world becomes much more dependent on air travel. This is because airplanes cause a phenomenon known as ‘cloud seeding’ to happen which ultimately changes the formations and natural patterns that clouds take. Experts agree that these phenomena may also be leading to an increased amount of annual rainfall and snowfall.

Global warming is an intense issue these days. There have been many actions undertaken to address this issue. A potential phenomenon to address this is Global Dimming. It is the gradual reduction in the amount of direct solar irradiance that hits the EarthÂ’s surface. Global dimming is explained by the presence of aerosol particles in the atmosphere which man himself caused to happen.

A brief overview of the controversy over the causes of climate change, and whether they are anthropogenic (caused by humans). The issue has been deeply politicized, but this is an issue of science, and politics should have no place in objective science. Keep in mind that while I argue that the issue of climate change may not be influenced as greatly by humans as is popularly believed, I do believe that more should be done to protect the environment.
