The phrase Global Warming has specific meaning.
I feel the same Paula- I've even e-mailed Rivero about the subject and asked him if is is aware of artificial ice nucleiation and directed him to this site..never got a response from him. I agree, I enjoy his show and he gives some good information but he is really missing the boat on this one. I get so annoyed I tune it out too when he starts up on the 'global cooling' bandwagon. He lives in Hawaii for God's sake- they must be burning up out there in the middle of the Pacific Ocean! And dumped on by Fukushima radiation too.
“Causes and Effects of Global Warming.”
Despite all these factors involved and the evidence shown from highly-credible sources (mostly governmental), there are critics of global warming as a scientific fact. One such criticism is that there is no real consensus that it is real, and that it is something up for discussion. However, the fact is that according to the authors of seven major climate consensus studies, about 97% of climate scientists believe in global warming (Skeptical Science, 2016). The critics who try to debase these results point to minor studies funded by far-right politicians and lobbyists.
When “global cooling” articles and conclusions are embraced by anti-geoengineering activists and websites without proper investigation, these activists and websites are then completely discredited in many circles (especially the science community). The subject of geoengineering goes out the window with the “climate change denial” that cannot be rationally denied at this point if one truly examines hard data. If we are to successfully bring geoengineering to the light of day, we cannot afford such missteps. It is imperative that we all make an effort to pull together, and not open up new battle fronts in directions that are not supported by verifiable information. .
I say this: global warming isn’t all it’s made out to be.
How does global warming affect the environment? These are some of the most important effects of a sustained increase in average temperatures and change in climate patterns:
Global warming is sometimes referred to as the greenhouse effect.
After researching many sites, such as National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), University studies, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) studies, Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC), and more, global warming is very complicated.
Global warming is a serious issue in today?s society.
The expected affect of global warming on arctic ecosystems is astounding. Global warming will likely affect species at almost every level of the food chain, from plankton to polar bears. Arctic ecosystems already have a startlingly low number of species, and even small changes bring drastic results. According to Adam Markham, director of WWF's climate change campaign, "Arctic ecosystems are probably the most fragile and interdependent on earth" (Reindeer, 1996).
Global warming is not a new phenomenon.
And before you believe that warmth in January is unusual, “January thaws” are a routine phenomenon, too, which is why the term was coined. According to the Glossary of Meteorology:
Global warming, a worldwide disaster, poses a dangerous threat.
Global warming is a long term used to reference “a large increase in the Earth’s average surface tem temperature that results in large changes in climate.” Differences in “solar radiation, atmospheric chemistry, and oceanic and atmospheric circulation resulted in global climate changes.” Many human activities contribute to the much of the...
We, as humans, are responsible for global warming.
Polar bears live and hunt on arctic sea ice. Polar bears feed almost exclusively on the seals that they hunt on the ice edge or through the pack ice itself. Studies show that the arctic ice has already decreased by about 40% (Maxwell, 1997) and future estimates go as high as 70% (Kirby, 2000). The summer ice-free period has lengthened as well. This leaves polar bears with less time on the sea ice to hunt for food and build up their body fat stores, and increased time on land where they must fast. Newborn bears are smaller than human babies, and blind. They require weeks of nurturing before they can leave their cave, but now there are several indications that an
increasing number of cubs, and even mothers, are found dead as they cannot breathe when the snow cave collapses due to global warming. If they do survive, the young are exposed to the frigid temperatures and they eventually die as well (Ice melting under the Feet of the Polar Bear). The losses of polar bear populations will not only affect the
people inhabiting the Arctic areas, but also significant consequences for the entire ecosystem that they occupy (Berner et. al., 2004).
