What is your guys oppion of Global Warming?
Do you think it is real? What do you think might of cause it? what IS Global Warming?
Global warming is a devastating mishap caused by us, human beings. In my opinion, we have destroyed the greatest tool we were given, earth. We do not need cars. We do not need A/C. We do not need packaged and processed foods. We do not need television, or the internet. Without all of the things that we look at today as necessities, we would be in a lot better shape. Our morals would be totally different. I definitely think Global warming is real. Have you ever seen the movie 'The Day After Tomorrow?' Though dramatized, this last month has proven the movie. An earthquake in California, then two in Haiti (+) One in Chicago, Then in Chile. Meanwhile, Tornados spotted in the Phoenix area; Severe cold fronts in the Sunshine State, and 'the storm of the century' in northern America. Global Warming is real, and will eventually claim us. There are ways to delay the effects, but it's finality is inevitable.
Wheather you like it or not, it's going to happen. There is now more awareness more than ever. Governments are setting emissions goals for companies and developing greener ideas. However I think it can only be slowed down. People have to realise that change is not going to happen right away. Projects like wind farms do not meet close to energy demands. One wind turbine produces 2MW of energy while a power station makes anywhere from 500MW to 2GW. Most solar power technologies are too expensive at the moment and are only about %30 efficient. The Hydrogen car would be here right now if it wan't so difficult to produce and control hydrogen. All these problems require years of research and development, but it is happening. People are not going to change the way they live today so we need to find a solution that sustains the way we live today, and thats when we will be able to slow down or stop climate change.

If you have been watching the Weather Channel or your local weather station; you will realize that some of us have been experiencing phenomenal weather conditions. I heard that the wind chill factor in one city was 74- which is basically unheard of in the lower 48 states. It seems as if every...

There are two major would shaping forces at risk with a Trump presidency; an economic meltdown brought on by a sharp decline in American productivity, and, a much more important one, the environment. I will leave the economy to another forum, for it is the environment I am much more worried...

My husband and I had a debate about global warming. He thinks we should spew out sulphur dioxide to cool the earth (as in the case of pinatubo) He claims a source said that in 6 months the problem will be over.But acid rain is caused by sulphur dioxide and it will poison our potable waters. I say...

Do you think that there's something to the greenhouse effect and global warming?The main reason I'm asking this question is down in the South we normally start wearing winter coats in the month of September, and we stop wearing our coats sometime in the month of April. However this past year we...

The Koch brothers are climate change skeptics, Their business is chemicals, coal and transportation- three areas likely to be hit hard by any moves to a low carbon economy.They have respect for science, though, and decided to partly fund a new study at Berkeley run by a climate skeptic Professor,...
