0Jack A LopezBest Answer 10 years ago The story of global warming is a contentions and polarizing subject, basically dividing the people of the world into two camps, those who believe the story of global warming, and those who do not. In fact the dispute seems much like a dispute between two different religions, which is strange because the underlying story is supposed to be a scientific one. Anyway, the subject is a contentions one, and for that reason the main thing I'd be worried about, is how to write the essay without offending the teacher I knew would be grading it. I mean the goal here is not to write something so profound that it's the final word on the global warming. The goal is to finish the essay, and get a good grade on it. I think I'd start with with one or two sentences defining the subject of global warming itself, and then an admission that this subject is a contentious subject. I mean I'd do this just as a strategy for deflecting criticism, or at least to demonstrate awareness of the other point of view. Actually, given the choice of what to write about for the subject of the essay, I could just go about the subject of why the subject is so contentions. In fact, that way I could just sort of sidestep the whole debate, by simply writing about the debate itself.
