Is our planet warming?

Yes, this is a fact that has been being tracked for years and the evidence is all around us.

As you can see in the above diagram the temperatures on Earth are rising. It might only look like a few degrees, but think about what happens to the your body when you have a fever and your temperature goes up just 3 degrees. The rising temperatures on Earth are just as dangerous. So yes it is only a few degrees, but when it comes to climate these are huge changes. It helps to understand how the atmosphere works. The weather is in a constant state of change and this change is through a fight for balance in pressure and moisture in the air. If there is to much Low pressure in an area, the weather moves in high pressure to try to create a balance. If there is not enough moisture in the air, more evaporation happens from the heart in the air which adds moisture to the air creating a balance.

So when climate “change” happens, the weather and climate patterns have been pushed so out of balance for one reason or another, that the areas of Earth actually gain a new climate. The temperatures in areas will go up or down according the way the climate is balancing its self out. Climate change is something that has happened on Earth continuously through time, but there is a usual pattern to these changes and “somewhat” of a steadiness to it.

The climate change that Earth is experiencing now is something different then we have seen in the past because it seems to be being accelerated. The changes seem to be happening fast and scientist believe this is due to the amount of “Greenhouse” gas’s in the atmosphere. The burning of fossil fuel is dumping massive amounts of greenhouse gas into the air and when those gas’s reach the atmosphere they are causing the balance of the Sun’s radiation (heat) that is coming in and going out to increase or decrease. The increase of radiation that is being prevented from escaping the atmosphere is cause the world to heat up. If this trend continues then the current climate balance around the world will totally change.

Throughout prehistoric history when climate change happened, the life in the biosphere is FORCED to adapt and migrate. That is both plants and animals must go through this adjustment. Well this is the biggest problem for humans when it comes to climate change. We would be forced out of curtain areas like coastlines, (where most of the most populated cities around the world are located), and move to other locations further in continentally where the climate would be more suitable for us. Now you can see the catastrophe, imagine the destruction and lives lost in such a change and then the absolute chaos of “Mass Human Migration” all over the world. This is something humans do not want to deal with and this is the key reason we need to stop the flow of Greenhouse gas into the atmosphere. HELP STOP CLIMATE CHANGE, GO GREEN!


“A warmer climate can only result in positive effects.”

No, absolutely not! As you have read in my response above, this type of change would be catastrophic to the current biosphere balance. The rate in which the climate is changing is faster than the rate of “life” adaption. The algae in the sea, the birds in the Arctic, the humans on the coastlines and plants all over the world would have to make massive migration changes due to the fact that there isn’t enough time for them to adapt to the changing climate. The forests would burn around the world because the moisture distribution would so far out of balance that the soils and vegetation would not have enough water to live. This is not good, not at all. We as a “Human Race” and a community member of the Earth biosphere need to take this threat serious and start NOW to make the changes to slow climate change.

      Climate change or global warming are vague phrases. What people across the world are experiencing is loss of smooth transition of seasons, abrupt and harsh climatic events like rains (or floods) - taken together we may call it global climatic mess-up.

      The root cause is the resource guzzling lifestyle in 'developed' nations (now spreading everywhere in the world) revolving around pure consumerism required to grow the GDP eternally.

      Unless people of the planet 'develop', become responsible and think from long term perspective there is no remedy. What we need is a sane and rational understanding of 'development.' Chasing GDP growth in the name of development is killing everything and disturbing the natural forces that sustain life on the earth.
