Title: Tornadoes and Global Warming: Is There a Connection?

Author: Robert Kunzig

Main Idea: Global Warming could be a major factor to the development of larger storms

Summary:

1) Climate change is increasing the Earth's temperature and is decreasing our atmospheric energy

2) The change in climate has the ability to not only strengthen storms, but also make less tornadoes

3) Global Warming might also be the cause to suppressing gases, which cause more dangerous tornadoes to form

Opinion: No, it was based off of scientific theories by researchers and scientists

Question: Can Global Warming be linked to other hazardous weather occurrences?

Is this article important to science?: Yes, because it informs us that since Global Warming may be a key factor to the fact that we have more dangerous weather it can help us to reduce anything that causes Global Warming, like burning fossil fuels.

This article takes a look at global warming and its potential influence on the frequency/strength of tornadoes.

Droughts, high temperatures, heavy rain and floods are all sparked by the El Niño weather pattern.

title:El Nino

author: Alex Kane

date: 2-17-14

main Idea: This article is about El Nino and what it does to us and how it effects.

summarize: - what El Nino causes- The weather conditions when El Nino comes to and when it might come back, which they say next year!

my question is what can we do so we can prepared when it comes.

I think this article is important to science because it has to do with climate.

Title: If You Think The Weather is Bad Now, Wait Until El Nino Returns

Author: Alex Kane

Main Idea: Scientists believe that El Nino will occur in 2015

Summary:

1) Researchers say that there is a 75% chance that El Nino could happen later this year

2) El Nino develops off of the West coast of South America, and it causes change in climate and warm temperatures

3) If the prediction is correct then we could possibly see a new global temperature record in the year 2015

Opinion: Yes, the article was based off of opinions

Question: Is this a global problem?

Is this article important to science?: Yes, because El Nino affects temperature and can do serious damage to our weather.
