    Abstract

    The vast body of scientific evidence suggest that climate change is the result of human-induced greenhouse gas emissions; skepticism of the evidence is a growing trend within American society. The Haiti earthquake explains some of the motivating factors behind American public support for the victims of this devastating environmental crisis. An environmental issue is substantially larger and potentially epic in scale-climate change. Climate change, often still referred as global warming is debated far and wide, causing political divides that sometimes resemble a political battlefield-soldiers falling and others emerging with dogged persistence of Navy Seal. While the term 'global warming' has largely fallen out of favour, it remains prominent in the language of skeptics, who that claim climate change is naturally occurring rather than resulting from human-induced greenhouse gas emissions. Boehner has targeted the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its regulations that "open the door to the Democrats 'cap and trade', "which he claims will "destroy jobs and threaten family farms"
