What's happening?

First of all, because the atmosphere exists, the average temperature of the earth is a lot higher than it would be without the air. This is the greenhouse effect in its basic form. It's good and it's necessary. There always was a green house effect.

Over the last few decades, researchers have linked changes in the composition of the air to the enhanced global warming green house effect.

Throughout history, the earth has experienced changes in the green house effects with periods of climate change global warming and cooling as well.

Global Warming Anomalies

Climate Change Global Warming: Why care now?

It appears global warming is happening faster now than ever. We try to blame this pending air quality environmental disaster on humans and industry, and we know there is some truth to it.

Several other things have been considered as well.

Some policy makers seem to have jumped on a bandwagon regarding the "facts" even though others believe the anthropogenic influences are greatly exaggerated. What does that mean? If the financial backing behind points of view indicates a potential conflict of interest, then we can legitimately question their credibility.

This goes for persons taking either side of the "argument" and new terminology has cropped up. For example we have "astroturfing" to describe a fake grass roots movement supported by corporations and their interests. Wouldn't you rather lead a real, successful grassroots movement?

People will be affected. The traditional thought says... Energy which was once in balance is moving towards a new balance. Increased droughts may destroy the grassland climates and agriculture industry in many parts of the world. Here's an undesirable consequence global warming has for persons living near sea level. Rising sea levels could flood low lying, heavily populated and developed urban areas.

Here's something else to think about. If the ice in your drink all melts, does the level of the liquid change? No. Global warming naysayers use this example to show that floating icebergs melting will not raise sea levels. That's true and land-based ice will contribute to the sea once it melts.

There exist many global warming charts, essays, statistics and articles to support anybody's claims. Their prophecies are widely publicized and the effects of climate change global warming is expected to produce are becoming quite well known. Which ones will actually take place? Only time will tell.

The Kyoto Protocal - Protocol, actually was proposed as a possible solution, but key countries ignored it. The world needs something better, and we shall have it soon.
