This is a large info graphic giving the pros and cons of global warming. all of them have their sources cited for that specific fact. for example when the pro says "The specific type of CO2 that is increasing in earth's atmosphere can be directly connected to human activity." (ProCon). while the con side says "Human-produced CO2 is re-absorbed by oceans, forests, and other "carbon sinks," negating any climate changes." (ProCon).
this is an article with several different branches that all explain how the recent warming trend is because of us. in it, they said that "Scientific evidence for warming of the climate system is unequivocal."(IPCC). the different branches have the ecosystems affected and how we can fix the problem. it's enlightening actually.
this is a post debunking the thought that the sun is whats causing global warming. A user believed that global warming was caused by "The sun, stupid" (Beck). He then goes on to debunk that theory, by saying "According to PMOD at the World Radiation Center there has been no increase in solar irradiance since at least 1978"(Beck). He goes on to make several other points, which are all delivered respectfully.

this website gives an argument against global warming and debunks the argument using science. For example, one argument said that climate change has happened before. They responded with " Greenhouse gasses, principally CO2, have controlled most ancient climate changes. This time around humans are the cause, mainly by our CO2 emissions."(Cook). It disproves the theories politely, and is super helpful because it gives 199 other arguments, chock full of facts and research. “Climate Science Glossary.” Edited by John Cook, Skeptical Science, www.skepticalscience.com/argument.php?f=percentage.
this is a report given by the IPPC on climate change. it goes in depth on the impacts that we have and to what extent we have affected out environment. one of the most important parts of this piece is the chart that shows the predicted outcomes of different environments that are close to humanity. it then goes on to say that "Mitigation will reduce air pollution" (Gilman 94).

this is a chapter in a book about climate change. In it the author goes over the main arguments against climate change, and the main influential people behind it. The author states that Rush Limbaugh, a conservative politician who has a radio show has one of the most vehement arguments against climate change (GALE). It also includes author Michael Crichton who made a book about the absence of global warming. “Climate Change Skeptics.” Gale Database, Gale, go.galegroup.com/ps/pdfViewer?tabID=T003&resultListType=RESULT_LIST&searchType=BasicSearchForm¤tPosition=5&docId=GALE%7CCX3079000070&docType=Topic+overview&sort=RELEVANCE&contentSegment=&prodId=GVRL&contentSet=GALE%7CCX3079000070&searchId=R1&userGroupName=j084910011&inPS=true&&c2c=true#content.
