  The Facts: Global Warming

What is causing global warming? Is it a natural cycle? Or is it caused by man and his insatiable appetite for industry? Is global warming a reality??

<a href="/facts/180943.html"><IMG SRC="http://www.msnbc.com/news/wld/graphics/greenhouse.jpg" WIDTH=365 HEIGHT=255 BORDER=0></A>

The fact is, if you have children and care about their future, or about the future of humanity and our planet in general, then you need to weigh the risk of global warming whenever you make a decision.

Risk is something that is so often overlooked by today's politicians and industry magnates. Think about your decision to buy a house - you weigh the risk of whether the market in that area/neighborhood will go up (or down). Or when you go out for a walk - what's the risk that it will rain? Should I bring my umbrella?

Although there is STRONG (almost overwhelming) evidence that man is at least contributing to global warming and that global warming is happening at an incredible rate (see the facts below), we maintain that it doesn't matter that there is evidence or not. The risk alone that the planet will be disastrously changed by global warming should be enough in itself to make substantial policy changes in the way we pollute our environment. AND changes in the way we, as individuals, choose to live our lives - should we buy an SUV, thereby supporting an extremely irresponsible auto industry, or can we find an alternative means of transportation that makes a much smaller impact on the future of our children? You make the decision, using your analysis of the risk...

Is Global Warming Happening? Yes:

  • February 18 - Ocean Study Confirms Human Cause of Global Warming - Tech News World
    "The implications are huge ... and in the short term, we're sort of screwed," said Tim Barnett of the Scripps Institution. A Bush administration spokesman greeted news of the study with indifference. "The science of global climate change is uncertain," said Bill Holbrook, spokesman for the White House Council on Environmental Quality.
  • January 29 - 'Dangerous' Global Warming Possible by 2026 - WWF - Reuters
    World temperatures could surge in just two decades to a threshold likely to trigger dangerous disruptions to the earth's climate, the WWF environmental group said on Sunday. "If nothing is done, the earth will have warmed by 2.0 Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels by some time between 2026 and 2060," the WWF said in a report.
  • December 14 - Climate expert in war of words on warming - MSNBC.com
    The world’s chief climate scientist on Tuesday disputed the U.S. government contention that cutbacks in carbon dioxide emissions were not yet warranted to check global warming.
  • November 29 - Asia Faces Living Nightmare from Climate Change - Reuters
    The weather predictions for Asia in 2050 read like a script from a doomsday movie. Except many climatologists and green groups fear they will come true unless there is a concerted global effort to rein in greenhouse gas emissions.
  • October 31 - Big Arctic Perils Seen in Warming - NY Times
    A comprehensive four-year study of warming in the Arctic shows that heat-trapping gases from tailpipes and smokestacks around the world are contributing to profound environmental changes, including sharp retreats of glaciers and sea ice, thawing of permafrost and shifts in the weather, the oceans and the atmosphere.
    The report says that "while some historical changes in climate have resulted from natural causes and variations, the strength of the trends and the patterns of change that have emerged in recent decades indicate that human influences, resulting primarily from increased emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, have now become the dominant factor."
  • September 23 - Antarctic glaciers slipping faster into the sea - NewScientist.com
    Antarctic glaciers are thinning and slipping ever faster into the sea, according to several new studies. Warmer air and sea temperatures are blamed, and the changes are expected to cause an appreciable rise in sea levels. He (Glaciologist Robert Thomas, a NASA contractor) found the glaciers were thinning at twice the rate they had in the 1990s, when a NASA satellite measured them.
  • August 19 - EU warns of global-warming perils - International Herald Tribune
    Increasingly frequent storms, floods, droughts and other extreme weather across Europe are consequences of global warming and other climate changes, the European Environment Agency said on Wednesday in a report that draws a grim picture of rising sea levels, melting glaciers in the Alps and deadly heat waves.

    Air pollution appears to be altering rainfall patterns in the Sierra and around the world, said Ramanathan of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla.
  • May 6 - Scientists claim new evidence of warming - The Guardian, UK
    Scientists are claiming to have found compelling new evidence for global warming, finally demolishing the argument of sceptics who have denied the phenomenon is real. New analysis of satellite data has revealed that temperatures in a critical part of the atmosphere are rising much faster than previously thought, strengthening the worldwide consensus that the earth is warming up.
  • April 20 - Alaska Is Melting. Can Kyoto Save It? - NBC, Columbus
    Alaska is melting. Literally.Much of Alaska is built on frozen ground called permafrost, a soil condition that results when the yearly temperature averages below freezing. But across most of the state, that criterion is just barely met, by a few degrees Celsius. Alaska lives on the edge of a phase change. A small bit of warming can make a big difference. And that’s why many Alaskans, along with plenty of outside researchers and environmentalists, are concerned about global warming and the strategies proposed to limit its rise. Even if the United States signed international treaties designed to limit climate change, they’re starting to realize, that might not be enough to keep the state from softening.
  • March 18, 2004 - Ice age to warming - and back? - Christian Science Monitor
    One reason for all the interest? While policymakers have worried long and hard about global warming, which might raise Earth's temperature 1.4 to 5.8 degrees C by century's end, a growing body of evidence suggests natural forces could just as easily plunge Earth's average temperatures downward. In the past, the planet's climate has changed 10 degrees in as little as 10 years.
  • March 21, 2003 - CO2 buildup accelerating in atmosphere - USA Today
    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change projects that, if unchecked, atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations by 2100 will range from 650 to 970 parts per million. As a result, the panel estimates, average global temperature would probably rise by 1.4 to 5.8 degrees Celsius (2.7 and 10.4 degrees Fahrenheit) between 1990 and 2100.
  • January 7 - Study sees mass extinctions via warming - MSNBC News
    The sweeping new analysis, enlisting scientists from 14 laboratories around the globe, found that more than one-third of 1,103 native species they studied could vanish or plunge to near extinction by 2050 as climate change turns plains into deserts or alters forests. It did not examine marine species.
  • December 10 - Doomsday warning on greenhouse - Herald Sun, Melbourne Australia
    Average yearly temperatures are projected to rise by as much as 2C across the nation by 2030, and 6C by 2070, according to an Australian Greenhouse Office report into global warming - triggering more natural disasters and crippling water shortages.
  • December 3 - Climate change 'entering the unknown' - Sun Sentinal, FL
    Two of the nation's top climate scientists say there's no longer any doubt that human activities are changing the Earth's atmosphere and its climate, and that our children and grandchildren will inherit the consequences.
  • November 27 - Billions Face Water Shortages as Glaciers Melt - WWF
    "Unless governments take urgent action to prevent global warming, billions of people worldwide may face severe water shortages as a result of the alarming melting rate of glaciers, the WWF group said in a report. It said human impact on the climate was melting glaciers from the Andes to the Himalayas, bringing longer-term threats of higher sea levels that could swamp island states.
  • November 18 - Review of evidence confirms causes of global warming - The Age
    A re-examination of 24 years of data from weather satellites has found that temperatures are rising in the lower layer of the atmosphere, called the troposphere, at a rate consistent with what has been measured at the Earth's surface. The finding is subtle but significant, experts say, particularly because previous studies of the same data, showing no warming, have been highlighted by those who oppose curbs on heat-trapping smokestack and tailpipe emissions linked to recent warming.
  • November 13 - Will global warming trigger a new ice age? - The Guardian, UK
    What's worrying is that for some years now, global climate models have been predicting a future weakening of the Gulf Stream as a consequence of global warming. Such models visualise the disruption of the Namoc, including the Gulf Stream, as a result of large-scale melting of Arctic ice and the consequent pouring of huge volumes of fresh water into the North Atlantic, in a century or two. New data suggest, however, that we may not have to wait centuries, and in fact the whole process may be happening already.
  • November 8 - Study: Global warming to could 'substantially affect' Calif. in 20 years - The San Jose Mercury News
    A shorter ski season in the Sierra. A poorer habitat for endangered salmon in lower streams. More wildfires and more floods. Extreme heat waves, easier spread of diseases and increased air pollution.
  • October 28 - Arctic warming is accelerating: NASA
    A NASA study warns that the rate of warming in the Arctic is speeding up and may be a harbinger of climate changes that will affect the entire globe. The rate of warming in the Arctic over the last 20 years is eight times greater than the rate over the entire last 100 years, says the study, to be published in the American Meteorological Society’s Journal of Climate. NASA also reports summer ice cover in the Arctic has been declining at a rate of nine percent a decade and is very close to the record low set last year.

    The pressure on President George W. Bush to work toward a global accord on climate change may intensify in his second term, as a buildup of grass-roots lobbying from U.S. companies and states and from his closest ally in Europe, Prime Minister Tony Blair of Britain, make the issue a priority.
  • November 7 - Kyoto can't do the job alone - New Zealand Herald
    The United States, the largest emitter, pulled out and the treaty imposes no obligations on developing countries, which are expected collectively to overtake developed countries in emissions within 20 years or so. "It is pure stupidity, a sham, crazy and dangerous not to engage the developing world and the major emitters," Australia's new Environment Minister, Ian Campbell said.

  • March 3 - The Pentagon's Weather Nightmare - Fortune
    The threat that has riveted their attention is this: Global warming, rather than causing gradual, centuries-spanning change, may be pushing the climate to a tipping point. Growing evidence suggests the ocean-atmosphere system that controls the world's climate can lurch from one state to another in less than a decade—like a canoe that's gradually tilted until suddenly it flips over. Scientists don't know how close the system is to a critical threshold. But abrupt climate change may well occur in the not-too-distant future. If it does, the need to rapidly adapt may overwhelm many societies—thereby upsetting the geopolitical balance of power.

    A secret report, suppressed by USA defence chiefs and obtained by the Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world. The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.

    Just like smokers in the European Union (EU) buy tobacco marked with "Smoking Kills" and other dire warnings, New Economics Foundation (NEF) offered its own slogans for super-stickers which they said should be slapped onto the hoods and sides of cars. "Global warming kills", "Climate change can seriously damage your health" or even "Driving seriously harms you and others around you" were among the list of warnings proposed by the London-based think tank.
  • September 19 - Warning in the Winds - Washington Post
    But before you dismiss global warming as mere hype and rush out to buy another SUV, consider this: Climate models developed by tropical meteorologists predict significant changes in hurricane intensity as greenhouse gases accumulate in the atmosphere and add more heat to the oceans. According to Tom Knutson and Bob Tuleya, tropical climate modelers at the Princeton, N.J.-based Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, we can expect a 20 percent increase in rainfall, and damage due to increased wind speeds might rise as much as 10 percent. That 10 or 20 percent may not sound like much, but add it to a top-ranked Category 5 monster headed for Mobile, Ala., and you've got a major disaster in the making.
