Sample Outline

a) The Fundamental Causes of Global Warming

? Combustion to fossil fuel in cars
? Home appliances contribute to global warming.
? Excessive amounts of carbon dioxide is released per year in Canada and the United States.

What would be a good three level outline for an article on Global warming to be presented to Congress on the subject of whether or not it is fact or fiction.

I need to write a paper on this but there is so much info I feel I have reached over load and got stuck. Could you please provide me with references for thBelow I have attached two PDF files for references I researched as well as a reference list and a sample outline.

b) Adverse Impact of Climate Changes

? Rare cold climate species are becoming extinct.
? Glaciers are retreating.
? Sea levels are rising.
? Extreme heat during the summer months.
? Ozone Layer depletion
? Changes in water, air and food quality and quantity.
? Less extreme cold during the winter.
? Climate-sensitive diseases.
? Respiratory disorders may be exacerbated by warming induced increases in the frequency of the smog.
