Section: 02 Practice: Cause and Effect Paragraph

Step One : Brainstorm (mind map, cluster, listing, etc.) or Freewrite.

Step Two : Select the info (causes, effects), categorize (primary, secondary, tertiary support), and
organize (order of causes or effects in the paragraph) in an Outline.

Step Three : Revise the Topic and Concluding sentences.

OUTLINE
Topic Sentence: Life on Earth in danger because of global warming? 1. Supporting Sentence #1:(primary support) The global temperature in the world is increasing during the years, because of the big amount of pollution generated by human kind. 1.1 Specific examples/proof/details (secondary support) Big concentrations of Carbon Dioxide in consequence of the massive use of vehicles. 1.2 Specific examples/proof/details (secondary support) The harmful gases emitted from the vehicles and factories and the greenhouse gases cause pollution in the air and these gases get captured in the atmosphere 2. Supporting Sentence #2: Melting of the glaciers is a natural phenomena. These ice mountains helps to equalize the temperature by beating up the heat. But there is excess melting of the ice due to the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. 2.1 Specific examples/proof/details(secondary support) :These gases contribute to the melting of the ice at faster rate which leads to increased sea levels and eventually floods.

2.1.1 Support for 2.1 (tertiary support): If the temperature kept on rising then there is a chance that glaciers might disappear which will lead to flooding of earth and destruction of land resources. 3. Supporting Sentence #3 : The use of artificial chemicals for the crops has become one of the reason for global warming.These chemicals are very dangerous not only for Earth but also for human beings too. 3.1 Specific examples/proof/details The negative impacts of climate change tend to increase with temperature. Larger temperature increases will be more difficult to adapt to. 3.1.1 These fertilizers are rich in nitrogen oxide which is even more dangerous than carbon dioxide. 3.1.2 These oxides of nitrogen destroys the ozone layer even more faster than any other greenhouse gas and hence let the harmful ultraviolet rays enter the atmosphere, making the Earth warm and leading to global warming.

Concluding Sentence: Global warming is one of the biggest potential dangers human kind has ever faced in history before and if the world doesn't take conscience about it, it could be irreversible for several millenniums.

Step Four: Write the paragraph. Life on Earth in danger because of global warming?
Several Scientist have recorded changes in Earth's temperature trough out the years, they have noticed that the world temperature is increasing in consequence of the big amount of pollution human kind is doing daily, one big cause of this is the huge amount of carbon dioxide that concentrates on the atmosphere due to burning fuels, cutting trees, the concentration of heat on Earth is increased to abnormal levels making greenhouse effect as one of the major causes of global warming. Carbon Dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide are the greenhouse gases which helps to keep the Earth warm. It is a natural phenomenon that takes place with the adequate concentrations of the greenhouse gases. But when the concentration of these gases rises, they disturb the climatic conditions, making the Earth more warm. These gases are not able to escape, which is the cause of worldwide increase in temperature causing the glaciers to melt. but the problem is that the melting of the glaciers is a natural phenomena. Large mountains of ice melt due to warmer temperature of the Earth so that new ice can accumulate. These ice mountains helps to equalize the temperature by beating up the heat. But there is excess melting of the ice due to the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. These gases contribute to the melting of the ice at faster rate which leads to increased sea levels and eventually floods. If the temperature kept on rising then there is a chance that glaciers might disappear which will lead to flooding of earth and destruction of land resources. Another big cause of this effect called global warming is the use of artificial chemicals for the crops farmers harvest, These chemicals are very dangerous not only for Earth but also for human beings too. These fertilizers are rich in nitrogen oxide which is even more dangerous than carbon dioxide. These oxides of nitrogen destroys the ozone layer even more faster than any other greenhouse gas and hence let the harmful ultraviolet rays enter the atmosphere, making the Earth warm and leading to global warming. The only thing that is left to ask ourselves is how long will we continue destroying our beloved Earth and take conscious about what we are doing to our home, so we can try to stop the pollution from destroying our ozone atmosphere and let it protect us against the terrible effects of a possible global warming.

Step Five: Edit and revise the paragraph for content using the checklist as a guide.
