Is Global Warming A Hoax?
Discover The Climate Change Facts
Global warming is the term used to describe a gradual increase in the temperature of our Planet, a change that is believed to be permanently changing the Earth’s climate. Climate scientists looking at the data and facts agree the planet is warming.
Glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising, extreme weather, extreme heat and cold, intense precipitation, and drought. How will we cope with the changes we’ve already set into motion?
There is great debate among many people, on whether global warming is real or is it a hoax ?
Over the last century the burning of fossil fuels like coal and oil has increased the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2).
The rapid rise in greenhouse gases is changing the climate faster than some living things may be able to adapt. Also, a new and more unpredictable climate poses unique challenges to all life on the planet.
The “greenhouse effect” is the warming that happens when Earth’s atmosphere trap heat. These gases let in light but keep heat from escaping, like the glass walls of a greenhouse.
The greenhouse effect is what keeps the Earth’s climate livable. Without it, the Earth’s surface would be about 60 degrees Fahrenheit cooler.
Aren’t global temperature changes natural?
The average global temperature have fluctuated on a cycle of hundreds of thousands of years as the Earth’s position relative to the sun has varied. As a result, ice ages have come and gone.
Occasionally, other factors briefly influence global temperatures. Volcanic eruptions emit particles that temporarily cool the Earth’s surface. But these have no lasting effect beyond a few years. Other cycles, such as El Niño, also work on fairly short and predictable cycles.
Now, humans have tripled the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere since the industrial revolution. Changes this large have historically taken thousands of years, but are now happening over the course of few years.
Skeptics of Climate Change
Skeptics believe that global warming, is normal, natural, and a good thing for the planet.
Climate Change, is more of a political, economic, and environmental movement. More like a doomsday cult, than any actual crisis. It appeals to people who want power and control over others.
Climate change deniers believe a warmer planet, will put more water vapor in the air, and keep us from getting too hot. That water vapor will condense and fall. Lots of places will get rain. Lot of semi arid and desert land could be green again, maybe a good place for the flood area people to consider moving to.
The best option is to change ourselves, prepare, and adapt, move to better, safer locations. Sure, it’s human nature to want to own, and hold on to things, places. But, if mankind wants to survive, we sometimes have to let go of the past, and figure out what we can make do, with what we have available.
There is no color in energy, the use of the word ‘green’ is also a meaningless buzzword used for political purposes. Energy systems that are ‘green’, such as wind and solar, require tremendous amounts of real estate to function. They produce very little power and are the most expensive forms of power generation in use.
