Argument on Climate Change

Argumenton Climate Change
Thealteration of climate causes the rise in temperature because of theuse of fossil fuels and greenhouse gasses (Van Vuuren et al., 2017).The increase in the use of greenhouse gasses and fossil fuels trapthe atmospheric heat which is responsible for the global climatefluctuations. Human activities such as the use of greenhouse gassesand fossil fuels have brought about modification in the globaltemperature bringing about major effects on the biodiversity and thelifestyle of people (Cáceres,2017). Therefore human beings are responsible for the global climatechange.
Formulationof the argument
Premise1: The increase in the use of greenhouse gasses and fossil fuels areresponsible for the global climate fluctuations.
Premise2: Human activities have brought about a modification of the globaltemperature
Conclusion:Therefore human beings are responsible for the global climate change.
Isthe argument sound and valid?
Concernsquestioning the existence of elements responsible for climate changewill enable us establish whether the argument is sound and valid. Thequestion is answered by the first premise which is the use ofgreenhouse gasses, and fossil fuels are responsible for the climatefluctuations. We can also ask who uses the fossil fuels andgreenhouse gasses. Which is answered by the second premise,therefore, bringing us to the conclusion people are responsible forthe change in climate.
Iwas able to establish that the use of fossil fuels and greenhousegasses play a significant role in the global climate fluctuations forsince trap the atmospheric heat and cause the temperatures to risebringing about climate change. Human beings are known to carry outactivities using this greenhouse gasses and fossil fuels andtherefore are responsible for the global climate fluctuations.
