This paper gives a detailed examination of global warming, including how it developed as an issue. The author also attempts to establish the validity of global warming, and to understand whether the average lay individual believes in this theory. The paper then examines the controversy and debate about global warming in light of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other powerful organizations' declarations that global warming is a possible severe risk to the world. This analysis looks to analyze how lay individuals see the debate and concludes by testing their understanding of global warming.
