Related Gardening Topics

If you are interested in organic gardening, consider native and antique plants. They are often healthier and hardier than modern hybrids - after all, they've survived for 100 or more years because, in part, of disease resistance without chemical sprays. They are also unusual and beautiful, often with incredible scents and forms rarely seen today.

      I don't see how people can continue to deny it; the storms are getting worse, Lower Manhattan had over 13 feet of water in places (and it's not the first time thee has been bad flooding down there). Many will not get further insurance coverage unless the issue is addressed. The South Street Seaport and surrounding area was hit so hard that the soundness of the structure is in question. Many of my friends in Lower Manhattan, New Jersey Shore, Long Island and Staten Island (and all coastal areas) lost everything. Not to mention the fact that in about 20 years, there will no longer be a Glacier State Park in Montana. Scary.

      I believe there is Global warming but I believe it is a natural cycle and there is little to do to stop it. Doesn't stop people making money from it though!

      Global temperature is increasing... If I had to pick a side, I'd go with "Fact"-- though I am also interested and open-minded to the "natural climate change" argument as well...

    • Anthony Altorenna 5 years ago from Connecticut

      There's no doubt that the global temperatures are increasing. What remains in the balance is the impact on the planet and its inhabitants. If the past is any indication, it's gonna be a rough ride.

      At a minimum ahmmmmm, it is apparently "An inconvenient truth" to some. I think we influence the environment to be totally frank.

    • AlphaChic 5 years ago

      Where I live, the plants started budding in January, whereas it usually occurs in April. I think the consequences may actually be more dire and come sooner than expected.

      I worked with scientists at Gulf Oil's Research Center who were talking about global warming in 1976. It's old science. The people in the oil companies have known about it for a long time.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      I feel the affects of global warming are real. I am trying to do my part to ensure a long and health plant long after I'm gone.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Not only fact, but scarier than fiction.

    • AbhinavB LM 6 years ago

      I agree that Global warming is a potential threat and scientific facts are also available for it.

    • Laraine Sims 6 years ago from Lake Country, B.C.

      The specter of global warming, may cause increased desertification and more extreme weather, and it comes as no surprise that many informed people are jittery about tomorrow. The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, which sets the so-called Doomsday Clock, expressed fears of a bleak future as scientists continue to observe cascading effects of global warming on Earths complex ecosystems.

    • Karnel 6 years ago from Lower Mainland of BC

      Definitely a fact

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      Fact for sure!!!

    There is no Proof that Global Warming is a Threat

        Global warming does have some effect on our planet, but I do believe that 'climate change' is cyclic and the current 'weather' events are just part of a normal cycle as it has been for thousands of years. I don't see it as the 'threat' that some believe it is. But I do think we should be as 'green' as possible and be aware of the ecological disasters humans can and do produce, including weather.

      The Day After Tomorrow, starrring Dennis Quaid and Jake Gyllenhaal, is an action packed film centered on the unexpectedly rapid effects of climate change. Worth watching for the special effects alone, but includes suspense, humor, relationships, and more.

      Based on a true story, Erin Brockovich is the story of one woman's victory over a multi-billion-dollar corporation that has destroyed her town's water. A tour de force performance by Julia Roberts in a very powerful film.

          I wanted to say in your duel poll that there is enough data to show global warming exists that I suspect many who don't think it is true have their own agenda for spreading propaganda. I know this doesn't cover everyone, but I think it applies to a majority of those denying global warming. I am truly concerned and want to thank you for writing this lens to remind us of this global problem.

          It's always inspiring to see lenses dedicated to preserving the planet such as this one. To care for Mother Earth should be our top priority. Fantastic lens! Hey, I just published my fourth lens called the 3 Shortcuts to Happiness and would love to know what you think of it. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Blessings! Sundae ;-)
