hi I am 9 years old and doing a science project on thispolar ice
caps melting and this should stop! it is not good and I want to stop it butt I
don't know how!If I could and I were a grown up I would stop this by building machines that don't use much energy and I hope you will try too. If
you want to help a cute child who cares.... HELP ME!!!!and if you don't
like cruelty to animals DO NOT EAT FAST FOOD!! P.S. they have rat droppings in
the burgersthey keep the animals locked in tight pens and they get weak
you should eat animals that lived a healthy life! and McDonald's
SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks for listening! =D bye PLEASE HELP BOTH THINGS!!!
Twenty something years ago, it was global cooling which was going to be the
problem, oh, and a huge earthquake on the on the wasatch front. In a geologic
time scale, both are a certain to occur. As will global warming, species
extinctions etc. etc.I believe we're doing rather well, and I'm optimistic
about the future. It's better today, than in the 60's, 70's, or 80's, and I
assume it will be better for my children than it's been for me.
After studying meteorology, I have come to the conclusion that global worming
isn't all the liberal press makes it out to be. If the ice caps melt, there is
more water, if there is more water there is more evaporation, if there is more
evaporation there is more cloud cover, if there is more cloud cover then there
is less sunlight and more rain and cooler temperatures, with all of that there
will be cooler temperatures and more snow. Our ice caps will come back. It is a
cycle. Get use to it!
Two words: Global Warming
We know from science that the earth has heated and cooled throughout its
existence. Why, then, should we expect today that the earth's temperature and
climate become constant? When did constancy begin?
Thank you James
Since this article was talking about temperature records, why did it omit the
fact that the highest average US temperature in the last century was in 1934?
Starting in 1935 the temperatures in the US declined dramatically, so that by
the 1970s some climate scientists were reminding us that earth is far overdue
for another ice age. Then in 1976 the temps started to rise again, so we are
now about where we were in 1934. In other words, the net impact of man's
actions on global temperatures has been effectively ZERO for the last 70 years!
Last winter, Park City was hosting a conference about global
warming, during a run of record setting LOW temperatures. The UN IPCC forecasts
about 2-4 degrees Fahrenheit increase by 2100, and that the greenhouse gases
already out there will ensure that most of this warming occurs even if we shut
down civilization. Warming is NOT as bad is some people fear.
Remember: No big hurricanes in 2006 and 2007, despite Al Gore's fear mongering.
The Antarctic ice cap is GROWING. Sea level rise by 2100: ONE foot, the same as
during the 20th Century. It was just as warm in 1000 AD.
YES. Global warming and increased CO2 will increase food production in Canada,
Russia and northern China. Good things for people.
@James: Can you cite sources on your points?
Mankind has this odd tendency to put certain disagreeing facts until the last
possible moment.Knowing this, it may already be too late.But
when considering the old question:"Is the earth better off without man?"
then the process of evolution continues and man is on his way out. Perhaps the
way it should be.
If man is the cause of global warming than why did the last Ice Age end??? Ever try thinking about the SSuns effect upon the earth?
When are people going to wake up and realize that this warming trend is man
caused and that it will be a big problem?
In the late 1980's and early 1990's, due to budget cuts, the number of temp
stations began to gradually decline. These are points, many thousands of them,
used to monitor temps across the country. What was lost were more remote sites,
what was kept were more accessable ones.The result is easy to
predict: Temps began to creep up. The reason is that temps in cities will always
be slightly higher due to vehicles, pavement, etc. The reason they had some many
remote locations is to get an accurate reading. This is why
satellite based temp readings are so important, and so often ignored. Satellite
based readings are hyper accurate and show far less dramatic numbers. They also
show that temps in the middle and higher atmosphere have not changed at all.
This is significant as in order for global warming theories to be accurate they
require atmospheric temps to increase. They are not, once again showing this is
hype.We need to decouple the scare of global warming from smart
energy use. The one is a massive redistribution of wealth program, the other a
good move for the future. Together, they aren't going to work so well.
Coincidence. Natural phenomena. God getting after gays. Whatever it is, it's not
our fault, and we're not going to consider one bit any change of lifestyle to
prevent it. We're like frogs in a frying pan, watching the temperature
slowly go up but not seeing anything more than incremental increases, unaware
deliberately in our case of the trend. Then, you suddenly find yourself cooked.
Proof that global warming is a hoax.Another Liberal lie.Man cannot
possibly be contributing to the devestation of The Earth, because he is God's
Some places were hot? We here in the pacific northwest had a mild summer, In
fact lots of my neighbors complained that we didn't get a real summer - there
were just too many cool and cloudy days. I for one like cool and green and
shady, so I wasn't complaining. And for the record, it normally doesn't rain
here in the summer, just the other nine months of the year. Oh, and
yes, the polar ice caps are melting and are at their smallest size since the
1970's when they started measuring. Wow, thirty years, now I'm really worried.
Come on people, Man is just a speck on this planet compared to the
mighty forces of nature.
