REALITY OF CLIMATE CHANGE 1
Research Question: Is climate change a real threat to human existence?
Baum, S. D., Haqq-Misra, J. D., & Karmosky, C. (2012). Climate change: Evidence of human causes and arguments for emission reduction. Science & Engineering Ethics, 18(2), 393-410. doi:10.1007/s11948-011-9270-6
This journal produces significant evidence that the cause of climate change is due to the human actions, these actions is a direction correlation to greenhouse gas emissions.
Cheng, L., Hoerling, M., AghaKouchak, A., Livneh, B., Wei-Quan, X., & Eischeid, J. (2016). How has human-induced climate change affected California drought risk? ClimJournal, 29, 111-120. doi:10.1175/JCLI-D.15-02060.1
This journal points out the drought in California is symptomatic of human-induced climate change. The drought is direct effect of global warming which is caused by climate change. This is due to the rising temperatures which is caused by greenhouse gas emissions. This journals illustrates significant studies and research which shows the history of precipitation in California which shows that the worst drought ever faced was 2011-14 due to rising temperatures.

This journal discusses several topics appearing in journals, articles, books etc about the various denials and skepticism by researches who refuse to agree and try to refute the fact that climate change is caused by human behavior and activities. The contention of politicians surrounding global warming policies and the rising in greenhouse gas emissions.

This journal aims to illustrate public beliefs on climate change. The information contained shows what are the public beliefs regarding human behavior being the cause of climate change. It shows that while some accept the fact human beings are responsible for climate change many persons still refuse to accept that it is human
behavior that caused climate change. Their beliefs is that climate change is a result of natural causes.

This journal presents copious information about the greenhouse effect means serious problems and implication for the world as we know it. It signals that many scholars and Nobel Laureates indicate that global warming and climate change can be a danger to world peace in the near future. It also talks about climate change not only having environmental impacts but on life as a whole.

This journal illustrates how climate change is attributable to human behavior and activities. It shows the impacts human beings have on climate change through our unabated use of natural resources which will not stop but increase because of the rate of population growth. It shows how our use of natural resources negatively impacts the environment. It also shows how greenhouse gas emissions potentially will yield devastating effects and consequences for climate change
