    You specifically have to talk about the causes (reasons) of the increase in overweight children, and explain the effects (results) of this.

    For example, if you wrote one very short paragraph about ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''causes'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' with little support and most of your essay on ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''effects'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''', you may then be seen to have not fully answered both parts of the question.

    The Natural Resources Defense Council works to safeguard the earth - its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends.

    A:  Here''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s a simple definition of global warming. (And yes, it''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s really happening.)  Over the past 50 years, the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history. And experts see the trend is accelerating: All but one of the 16 hottest years in NASA’s 134-year record have occurred  since 2000.

    Deforestation is the permanent destruction of forests in order to make the land available for other uses. An estimated 18 million acres (7.3 million hectares) of forest, which is roughly the size of the country of Panama, are lost each year, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

    Though deforestation has increased rapidly in the past 50 years, it has been practiced throughout history. For example, 90 percent of continental United States’ indigenous forest has been removed since 1600. The World Resources Institute estimates that most of the world’s remaining indigenous forest is located in Canada, Alaska, Russia and the Northwestern Amazon basin.

    Public reactions to global warming and concern about its effects are also increasing. A global 2015 Pew Research Center report showed a median of 54% consider it "a very serious problem". There are significant regional differences, with Americans and Chinese (whose economies are responsible for the greatest annual CO 2 emissions ) among the least concerned. [30]

    The global average (land and ocean) surface temperature shows a warming of 0.85 [0.65 to 1.06] °C in the period 1880 to 2012, based on multiple independently produced datasets. [34] Earth''''''''''''''''s average surface temperature rose by 7002273890000000000♠ 0.74 ± 0.18 °C over the period 1906–2005. The rate of warming almost doubled for the last half of that period ( 7002273279999999999♠ 0.13 ± 0.03 °C per decade , versus 7002273219999999999♠ 0.07 ± 0.02 °C per decade ). [35]

    Global warming is the challenge of our times. It is important not as an isolated, ambiguous theory or political wedge issue but how the reality of global warming impacts nearly every aspect of humanity and life on Earth. Whether it be the economy, sustainable development, politics or realizing our place in the web of life that sustains us, understanding global warming is central in meeting the challenge and opportunities of the 21st century.

    President Donald J. Trump’s energy policy runs contrary to the 65 percent of Americans who place a higher priority on alternative energy as opposed to fossil fuel development, according to the latest Pew Research Center survey.

    Climate change is recognised as one of the largest global crises. The issue has gained traction around the world as the world becomes increasingly urbanised. This is because urbanisation brings irreversible changes in our patterns of resource/waste production and consumption. Therefore, how to plan, manage and live in cities in the light of global warming largely determines and depends on the progress of the climate change phenomenon. [2]

    According to projections by the Department of Climate Change in Australia, it is expected that national average temperatures would increase by 0.4 to 2.0 °C [1]. Rainfall patterns and the degree of droughts and storms brought about by extreme weather conditions are likely to be affected.

    According to proponents of the Global Climate Treaty, a consensus within the scientific community supports the view that human-caused global warming is occurring and that it threatens human health and well-being. Nothing could be further from the truth. Far from viewing the existence of global warming as “settled,” most atmospheric scientists and climate specialists hold that the global warming issue should be considered “unfinished business” requiring much further research.

    In HOT TALK, COLD SCIENCE: Global Warming’s Unfinished Debate , astrophysicist S. Fred Singer probes the literature on climate change and lays out the scientific case against the likelihood of an imminent, catastrophic global warming. Theoretical computer models to the contrary, man-made global warming has not been documented. But even if it were to occur, the evidence suggests that it would largely be benign and may even improve human well-being, Singer argues.

    Given current technologies, it makes no sense to destroy $100 Trillion in wealth this century for an unmeasurable reduction in warming.

    The more efficiently we can do those things, the greater humanity prospers. Affordable energy is part of that efficiency.

    Global warming is a really complex topic. First of all, global warming is the result of both "natural" and "human" processes that include solar activity, volcano explosions, and greenhouse gases. Adding carbon dioxide (CO2) or methane (CH4) to Earth s atmosphere, with no other changes, will make the planet s surface warmer; greenhouse gases create a natural greenhouse effect without which temperatures on Earth would be uninhabitable. Greenhouse gases are transparent to short wave radiation from the sun. However, they absorb some of the longer infra-red radiation from the earth, making it more difficult for the Earth to cool. The atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and CH4 have increased by 31% and 149% respectively above pre-industrial levels since 1750. This is considerably higher than at any time during the last 650,000 years. The predicted effects of global warming are many. These effects include sea level rise, impacts on agriculture, reductions in the ozone layer, increased intensity and frequency of extreme weather events, and the spread of disease. Of course, the effects are still "hypothetical". Hope this helps

    Climate change is recognised as one of the largest global crises. The issue has gained traction around the world as the world becomes increasingly urbanised. This is because urbanisation brings irreversible changes in our patterns of resource/waste production and consumption. Therefore, how to plan, manage and live in cities in the light of global warming largely determines and depends on the progress of the climate change phenomenon. [2]

    According to projections by the Department of Climate Change in Australia, it is expected that national average temperatures would increase by 0.4 to 2.0 °C [1]. Rainfall patterns and the degree of droughts and storms brought about by extreme weather conditions are likely to be affected.

    According to proponents of the Global Climate Treaty, a consensus within the scientific community supports the view that human-caused global warming is occurring and that it threatens human health and well-being. Nothing could be further from the truth. Far from viewing the existence of global warming as “settled,” most atmospheric scientists and climate specialists hold that the global warming issue should be considered “unfinished business” requiring much further research.

    In HOT TALK, COLD SCIENCE: Global Warming’s Unfinished Debate , astrophysicist S. Fred Singer probes the literature on climate change and lays out the scientific case against the likelihood of an imminent, catastrophic global warming. Theoretical computer models to the contrary, man-made global warming has not been documented. But even if it were to occur, the evidence suggests that it would largely be benign and may even improve human well-being, Singer argues.

    Given current technologies, it makes no sense to destroy $100 Trillion in wealth this century for an unmeasurable reduction in warming.

    The more efficiently we can do those things, the greater humanity prospers. Affordable energy is part of that efficiency.

    You specifically have to talk about the causes (reasons) of the increase in overweight children, and explain the effects (results) of this.

    For example, if you wrote one very short paragraph about ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''causes'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' with little support and most of your essay on ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''effects'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''', you may then be seen to have not fully answered both parts of the question.

    The Natural Resources Defense Council works to safeguard the earth - its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends.

    A:  Here''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s a simple definition of global warming. (And yes, it''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s really happening.)  Over the past 50 years, the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history. And experts see the trend is accelerating: All but one of the 16 hottest years in NASA’s 134-year record have occurred  since 2000.

    Deforestation is the permanent destruction of forests in order to make the land available for other uses. An estimated 18 million acres (7.3 million hectares) of forest, which is roughly the size of the country of Panama, are lost each year, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

    Though deforestation has increased rapidly in the past 50 years, it has been practiced throughout history. For example, 90 percent of continental United States’ indigenous forest has been removed since 1600. The World Resources Institute estimates that most of the world’s remaining indigenous forest is located in Canada, Alaska, Russia and the Northwestern Amazon basin.

    Public reactions to global warming and concern about its effects are also increasing. A global 2015 Pew Research Center report showed a median of 54% consider it "a very serious problem". There are significant regional differences, with Americans and Chinese (whose economies are responsible for the greatest annual CO 2 emissions ) among the least concerned. [30]

    The global average (land and ocean) surface temperature shows a warming of 0.85 [0.65 to 1.06] °C in the period 1880 to 2012, based on multiple independently produced datasets. [34] Earth''''''''s average surface temperature rose by 7002273890000000000♠ 0.74 ± 0.18 °C over the period 1906–2005. The rate of warming almost doubled for the last half of that period ( 7002273279999999999♠ 0.13 ± 0.03 °C per decade , versus 7002273219999999999♠ 0.07 ± 0.02 °C per decade ). [35]

    Global warming is the challenge of our times. It is important not as an isolated, ambiguous theory or political wedge issue but how the reality of global warming impacts nearly every aspect of humanity and life on Earth. Whether it be the economy, sustainable development, politics or realizing our place in the web of life that sustains us, understanding global warming is central in meeting the challenge and opportunities of the 21st century.

    The greenhouse effect causes global warming which causes global climate change. The greenhouse effect is partially caused by molecules like carbon dioxide in the atmosphere which allow sunlight to pass through but absorb heat.

    The greenhouse effect is the process by which certain gases absorb solar radiation rather than allowing it to escape into space. Without the Greenhouse Effect the earth would be around 5 degrees cooler and would be uninhabitable to us. Global Warming is a term used to describe the trend of a global increase in temperatures over time. This is also a natural occurance, and would be used to describe the phenomenon which has caused the end of each and every Ice Age. Its opposite of course, would be global cooling, which has caused the Ice Ages in the first place. Not to be confused with Climate Change, or, more specifically, Anthropogenic Climate Change, which is what people usually mean when they talk of "The Greenhouse Effect" or "Global Warming". This is the theory that the current trend of global warming has been caused by the massive release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere over the past 100 yrs or so by the burning of fossil fuels.
