Global Warming, Are We Already Too Late?

Melting Ice

Global Warming

Even though there are undisputed facts that global warming is taking place. Scientists and Governments are still debating what can be done.

Glaciers and polar ice caps are melting, yet Governments do not want to accept that this must have a harmful affect on us. They argue that the problem isn’t that bad. What they are really doing, is putting things off till the next administration.

This has been going on for years and now, it would appear that they waited too long.

Project Clamor, is an 18 month survey taking place to determine the state of our Oceans.

The project has already reported that, due to the melting ice, creatures native to the Pacific Ocean have been able to cross into the North Atlantic Ocean. Also species from the Mediterranean have been found in the Black Sea.

Experts say that the migrations vary from the small plankton to large fish but it is too early to say what effects there will be on the existing natural species.

It will obviously have a great effect on the current eco-system; it is only a case of whether the effects will affect us.

The Governments may be right, in so far as, there may be time to address global warming before the waters rise to a critically high level to have an effect on coastal regions but what other affects are there that we may not have anticipated?

The migration of sea creatures was not foreseen, will it have catastrophic effects on our existence? What other unforeseen problems may there be?

Have we already left it too late to check and reverse global warming? Will Governments now act, instead of just putting off?

"Eventually Will, but desertification to once fertile land will come first."

Pure speculation. You have no way of knowing that at all. In fact, some predict that increased temperatures mean more ocean evaporation and increased rainfall, not less! That means a big increase in tillable lands and far more food.

Eventually Will, but desertification to once fertile land will come first. How many will die before the first new crops can be harvested, unless we prepare now.

If it gets warmer, regions that were once too cold for crops will obviously have longer growing seasons.

There will be more food, not less.

The problem is we are no longer races of nomads, we settle on sites and eat specific foods. The population is now so big, it would be quite difficult to change our eating habits en mass. Too many have settled by the Oceans and rely on the Oceans. Drastic changes of any kind, to the Oceans, would have a drastic affect on us as a civilization, possibly costing millions of lives before we were able to properly adapt. We would of course adapt, so we would survive but where and eating what?

What is the optimal temperature for life on Earth? How do you know that it should not be warmer?
