The paper outlines the documentary film, "An Inconvenient Truth," and discusses the arguments in the global warming debate that concern the nature, reasons and penalties of global warming. The paper then looks at eco-friendly home goods and addresses the need for conservation and alternative sources of energy. The paper asserts that whether or not the global warming issue is valid, the products that are being invented and the steps that are being taken are all contributing to the improvement of the environment and everyone's living conditions. The paper argues that these are things that needed to be done anyway, and have just been accelerated because of global warming fears.

Background Summary

From the Paper:

"The documentary film, "An Inconvenient Truth," provides an unmistakably thorough and critical examination of the current state of the physical earthly environment due to climate change and global warming, assessing its socio-economic and political grounds, and in addition it provides a series of completely sensible diagnosis, illustrating motivation and assessments from devoted scientific research and historical data to show striking parallels with mankind's scientific development. Global warming takes place when the earth gets warmer. It occurs when greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, water vapor, nitrous oxide, and methane, trap warmth and light from the sun in the earth's environment, which causes the temperature to rise. This harms many people, animals, and plants that cannot endure the alteration and die (Global Warming, n.d.).
"Global warming is touching many areas of the world. Global warming is thought to make the sea level go up, and when the sea level goes up, the water ends up covering numerous low land islands. This is a large trouble for a lot of the vegetation, animals, and people that live on these islands. The water covers up the plants and causes some of them to die. When they die, the animals lose a resource of food, alongside with their environment."
