Monroe's Motivated Sequence
1. Hello, Today I am going to talk about the issue of Global Warming.
a. Most of us when we here about Global warming we don’t consider that we are part of that. We are part of the reason why Global warming is happening.
b. We hear people saying Global Warming is happening. But most of us don’t know what Global Warming is. Global Warming is a gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth’s atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by the increasing levels of carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and other pollutants.
c. Sometimes I think about not doing things that can cause Global Warming, but it is really hard, because what we daily cause Global Warming.
d. Heat is energy and when we add energy to any system changes occur, because all systems in the global climate system are connected, adding heat energy causes the global climate as a whole to change.
i. Global Warming is not occurring and so neither is climate change
ii. Global Warming and climate change are occurring, but these are natural, cyclic events unrelated to human activity
iii. Global warming is occurring as a result primarily of human activity and so climate change is also the result of human activities.
2. To say that nothing is happening that causes global warming is very hard to defend in the face or masses of visual, land based and satellite data that clearly shows rising average sea and land temperatures and shrinking ice masses.
a. To say that global warming is natural or at least not the result of human carbon emissions, where there is evidence that shows that the world temperatures and atmospheric CO2 levels have been equally high in the past. It also shows the solar activity on the amount of radiation striking the earth and the fact that in recent times the sun has been particularly active.
i. For example, the new ice core data shows that the rapidity with which the globe has warmed, and the climate change simply do not fit the model of previous natural events. (According to Climate change communication)
ii. Climate change communication, March 2018, By Anthony Leiserowitz.
iii. Anthony is saying that according to data and time the earth has become warmer then it was in the past years.
b. Global warming and climate change result from human activity are anthropogenic. Scientists say that the current atmospheric warming human activities that have increased the amount of carbon containing gases in the upper atmosphere and to increase amounts of tiny particles in the lower atmosphere.
i. It shows that gases released primarily by burning of fossil fuels and the tiny particles produced by incomplete burning trap the sun’s energy in the atmosphere. These gases are called “greenhouse gases” because they act like the wrong way reflective glass in our global greenhouse. (According to Atmospheric Science)
ii. Greenhouse gas, Atmospheric science, By Michael E.Mann
iii. Michael is saying that gases...
