This month's KPC Word on Campus

Do you believe that humans have an impact on the climate changes going on around the world and especially Alaska?

The earth normally goes through a climate change cycle. I do believe though, that as humans living in the post-industrial age, we have sped the process along.

Yes, I do believe that humans have an impact. With how much fuel a person uses for their cars, it is emitting a gas into the atmosphere that is slowly deteriorating our ozone layer. And when the ozone layer is tampered with, it allows excess rays of radiation from the sun to accumulate on Earth. This is part of what is causing the extreme weather patterns and the melting of the ice caps around the world.

For sure! It’s very apparent that the glaciers are melting. I used to think global warming was a scam until I saw Exit Glacier and spots where it receded. I watched ice break off the glacier and fall and I’ve heard stories of lowlands in Louisiana becoming nothing but water. Humans have a huge impact. Our SUV/trucks guzzle too much gas and destroy the ozone. I feel like because it doesn’t directly affect people’s lives, they turn a blind eye to it. As a Midwestern kid, I certainly did. But after being up here, it’s clear to see global warming is not a myth and it’s sneaking up on us.

Humans have certainly played a major role in climate change, particularly in their production of large amounts of greenhouse gases.

To disbelieve the evidence of the rocketing C02 levels and the role of humans in producing that C02 is sort of like going to the doctor after a minor stroke and the doctor says that you need to reduce your consumption of trans fats, etc., and you're like, "Naw, this girl doesn't know anything..."

Yes, humans have an impact on climate change, but not to the extent that some people claim. I believe that much of the world’s climate change is cyclical.

Yes, absolutely people have an impact on climate change that is affecting our climate around the world.

I do believe humans have the power to impact our ecosystem. I think the climate changes happening on our earth are caused by human pollution. We can’t change the past, but we can change the future. Small changes in our habits can affect our world greatly.
