Global warming is present with the holes in the ozone layer. The fact is that in the Arctic there are fewer icebergs and that the Arctic itself is shrinking. There are unusual climate changes happening throughout the world. People of the world will not believe that global warming exists until it starts affecting the region they live in.
that is one huge place without a heating system. can you imagine the temperature in the winter? a comfortable 70-80 degrees. how? every person that goes in there heats up the place. a huge building is heated up by body heat. well.. try the same thing but on a bigger scale.. earth with over 6billion people.. same effect. makes sense to me.
We can't use the planet however we want, without fear of consequences. The pollution we release into the world is destroying the ozone layer, effectively taking away our natural protection from the sun's most dangerous rays, UV rays. I define global warming as changes in weather due to our actions, and I can guarantee things won't stay in balance if we keep destroying the planet doing whatever we wish.
All over the world, people are seeing weather patterns that are new to their environment. Snow where there didn't used to be snow, temperatures that are hotter than normal, or colder than normal. The term 'global warming' does not mean that everyone will notice warmer temperatures. Many places will feel colder weather patterns. Global warming simply means changing weather patterns caused by the melting of the polar ice caps. The fact that those things are happening cannot be denied.
Numerous Studies have shown a correlation between CO2 Emissions and the World's temperature. What's more, this time, correlation=causation. A tiny amount of CO2 and other greenhouse gases, like methane and water vapour, keep the Earth’s surface 30°Celsius (54°F) warmer than it would be without them. We have added 42% more CO2 but that doesn't mean the temperature will go up by 42% too.
There are several reasons why. Doubling the amount of CO2 does not double the greenhouse effect. The way the climate reacts is also complex, and it is difficult to separate the effects of natural changes from man-made ones over short periods of time.
As the amount of man-made CO2 goes up, temperatures do not rise at the same rate. In fact, although estimates vary - climate sensitivity is a hot topic in climate science, if you’ll forgive the pun - the last IPCC report (AR4) described the likely range as between 2 and 4.5 degrees C, for double the amount of CO2 compared to pre-industrial levels
Increased storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, ocean warming, fires, pollution, population explodion using more resources, increasing temperatures around the earth, shorter winters, hotter summers and longer summers, increase of insects and animals becoming extinct, including birds, because of global warming. Look at Easter Island, when we lose our resources, we lose animals, ability to provide food, clean water, comfortable living conditons.
Ionosphere dissapearing. Instead of absorbing the reflective strays of sunlight by the ionosphere, it is now casted back to planet earth. This causes temperatures rising at the surface of the earth with a big effect on weather patterns and earth and lead to the death of animal life and plant life.
Sure global warming is happening but is it really a bad thing? No. With all the talk about ice caps melting and all that has nobody thought of the opportunities? With a rising population we will need more space, resources and farming land. Also the hot weather will protect us of any kind of ice age that was predicted in the 60s. Next, we will have all the water we need. Double the amount of fresh water in lakes and rivers is locked in the caps unreachable. People are complaining that all the animals up there are dying. Polar bear populations have spiked, and what you may be forgetting is that polar bears can still survive in hot temperatures in fact they prefer it. If we got a hold of that land then all the other animals would flourish. People are stuck on the idea that any hymn change is horrible but it really isn't. If we were to shoot an asteroid out of the sky would that be bad?
For millions of years our world has changed and essentially "cleansed" itself. Global warming is the latest way of doing this. We have polluted this planet to the point the planet itself will eventually rid itself of us. I do not believe the planet will die...only those of us inhabiting it.
There is so much evidence, between median temperatures, melting glaciers and ice shelves, that it is hard to refute global warming. Even as I believe that pollution has sped up and expedited this process, I am not convinced that it is the only reason. I also believe that normal climatic cycles have a hand in the warming of the climate. After all, there have been natural ice ages, so is it so hard to believe in a natural hot age?
Global warming is yet to be proven, and yet the government uses it as an excuse to raid our wallets. The argument you should be having is first proving it exists, and then taxing appropriately. The trouble is, it is easy for them to get away with it because there are so many "tree huggers" who believe this. It's Easter time in the U.K., and it is snowing outside.
All of you who believe in this crap, are idiotic! There is NO such thing as Global Warming! We're NOT gonna die in 2012 because of it! SO STOP SAYING THAT! ITS A BUNCH OF CRAP! Scientists are just trying to scare people! They don't know anything about it!
We can give global warming a name, but whether we caused it is another question. Its a cycle of the earth and although we might contribute to it's speeding up, we did not start it. Our pollution is an iota of what can happen (as has been documented) when a large meteor hits the earth.
The term global warming could have easily been called something else which better defines the process which the earth shifts its climate control to a different policy.
I believe that people are blowing man-made global warming out of proportion, and governments have run with this "crisis". They have run with this crisis to gain more power through taxes, such as cap and trade and the carbon tax. With this said, I do believe it is not a bad thing to try to change our polluting habits. With all this said though, I do believe that the earth is getting warmer. But, I believe this is due to factors with the sun, not with carbon emissions.
Sure we could speed it up a little bit, no doubt about it. But that doesn't mean we CAUSED it. Even the top scientist on the matter says we don't have a measurable effect on the rising and cooling of the earths interior. Just a few decades ago we were worried about another ice age, now this. Humans are just paranoid. There is evidence that, yes the world is getting hotter, but it's not us, it's a natural cycle, and it's happened many times before. Not only is the issue not worthy of ANY of the attention it's getting, it's hardly an issue at all, just a small nuclear war, would reverse all the global warming for nearly ten years!
There is no such thing as global warming, It's just rubbish. People believe in global warming because they want to know how the world will end and they don't want it to have anything to do with God. Anyone who believes in global warming is an idiot who is stupid to believe everything they are told.
People want an answer that doesn't involve God, So they make up what they want to hear. And just because the sea is rising doesn't mean anything. People are just so caught up in the "facts" that they don't realize how ridiculous it sounds. So Global Warming Is Not Real!
The sun also moves slightly because the planets are pulling on it, pulling the sun closer and farther away, raising the temperature and also causing it to fall. Many people don't understand that gravity has an effect on every planet and will cause the sun to move as well and can also pull the either every so slightly
This global warming scheme was dropped because these assholes were caught faking the data and it was proved to be a fraud. Then the liberal assholes switched Global Warming to climate change. Oh my God what a crock of crap these money grubbing assholes have tried to pass off a money making carbon credit selling farce as a scientific fact and it is not.It has not been proven that humans cause climate change or that climate change even exists
There is no such thing because the earth is getting colder not hotter when dinosors where still around it was an average of 130 digers a day and now its about 70 in some places and others 100 so the earth is getting colder and the is no such thing as global warming
