Please make a CLEARLY STATED THESIS in the introduction and solution please!!.
Here’s what I have:

It’s happening everyday and right now. It is becoming a worldwide problem. This is global warming. Global warming is a serious problem that affects our planet. Is it a natural cause or man-made? It may be natural. Many people point to the melting ice caps as proof that humans are the ones that are causing global warming, but what they may not know is that the polar ice caps on Mars are melting too. Humans may not be the main cause of global warming but they do affect it greatly causing it to accelerate.

Global warming was most likely sped up by human causes. One major human cause is pollution. People are creating more and more of it. One type of pollutant is greenhouse gases. These gases trap solar energy, increasing Earth’s temperature, rather than letting the heat back into space. Another cause is the burning of fossil fuels. Some fossil fuels are oil, gas, and coal. These produce carbon dioxide. We are producing too much of it into our atmosphere too quickly and plants can’t absorb all of that carbon dioxide. We even cause global warming to be sped up by being alive. We exhale carbon dioxide with every breath we take. If we want to reduce global warming, to a state we can deal with and not worry about it, we need to start by reducing all of the pollution we create. Global warming may be a natural cause but “humans can be a powerful influence on the climate as well.” (Revkin 2)

There are many problems causing global warming. There are also many solutions to help reduce global warming. One way is to produce greener ethanol. “Ethanol production consumes a lot of fossil fuel and generate harmful side products.” (Carbon-info.org) Corn-based ethanol is not cheap and it’s not green. Another solution may be cutting down greenhouse gases. This allows the climate to balance the precipitation. If you don’t reduce, reuse, and recycle nonrenewable resources (they are resources that cannot be renewed) they can run out. If we conserve, we will have enough to use for many years to come. For example, if we run out of gasoline, we would not be able to drive cars. This is one of the easiest solutions: the three R’s (reduce, reuse, and recycle!). This reduces pollution and impacts global warming. You can save money, save energy, and help save the world! This may be one of the easiest methods you can do by simply adding it to your lifestyle. Reducing: Try to cut back on the amount of energy you use. For example, if you leave the light on remember to turn it off. Don’t leave electronics plugged in when they may be fully charged or you simply are not using it. Reuse: Try to reuse whatever you can. There are things like paper and containers. Reusing things you might need can help you save money. For example, save and reuse scratch paper that you had been doing math notes or homework on to use it another time. Recycle: Take your recyclable products, like paper after you’ve thoroughly reused it, and make sure it is taken to a recycle plant so it can be made into new fresh paper that can be used again so more trees don’t need be cut down. Some people even recycle by making art out of their trash. Hey it helps global warming in a way! “Recyclable materials include many kinds of glass, paper, metal, plastic, textiles, and electronics.” (wikipedia) If everybody stuck to these rules, we would be doing a great thing by protecting the earth.

Global warming affects our planet greatly. You may not notice it much but it’s happening right now. It is sped up mostly by human causes. There are many problems as a result of global warming. One example, the melting ice caps. Think about the poor polar bears! Another example, is greenhouse gases. These gases trap heat that needs to go back into space. To most problems there is also a solution. The three R’s. Simple as that. It helps us in a lot of ways by saving money and energy. Global warming affects the weather and that affects us. Global warming is a problem. If you contribute, you can help reduce global warming. Do your part.
