Global Warming Issues


FAQ

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about Global Warming. If you have any other questions that you’d like to ask us, please feel free to leave a comment, and we’ll be sure to answer you as soon as possible.

What is Global warming?

In the past few years, the world has experienced devastating natural disasters on a level that hasn’t been seen for decades. There is much speculation that these especially strong phenomena are due to global climate change, brought on by Global Warming. The term ‘Global Warming’ refers to the rising temperature of the earth due to an increased amount of greenhouse gases. The scientific community as a whole has determined through all research that global warming is a problem caused by human influence. The burning of fossil fuels emits greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. These gases trap the heat from the sun and cause the temperature of our planet to rise. This warming of the globe could potentially alter sea level, crop yield and rain fall, and could increase the intensity and frequency of natural disasters such as tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, and droughts. For more information on global warming, please visit our research page, our student submission page, or any of the links on the left side of this page. Please also feel free to download our free informational pamphlet and our Global Warming political cartoon.

Is Hawaii in Danger?
Eventually, yes. All small islands and low-lying areas will be jeopardized if Global Warming is allowed to progress. Some of the northern hawaiian atolls have already been submerged by ocean water. Waikiki, Manhattan, and New Orleans are good examples of major cities within the United States that may be at risk of flooding.

What is the Kyoto Protocol?
The Kyoto Protocol is not something that our government should have taken lightly. Under its provisions, 37 industrialized nations including Japan and several European countries have all committed themselves to cut their greenhouse gas emissions by 33%. We, however – as the leading emitter of greenhouse gases – refused to sign and abide by it, and instead President Bush offered up an alternative plan to deal with Global Warming. He proposed a plan that gives businesses incentives to reduce power plant emissions and greenhouse gas emissions voluntarily. However, this reduction is estimated to be less than 5% over ten years.

Why Didn’t the United States Sign the Kyoto Agreement?
The Bush Administration decided not to sign the Kyoto Protocol for one reason – the economy. President Bush has said on many occasions that the Kyoto Protocol sets unrealistic goals and would hurt the American economy. And so, we’ve become a country that intentionally lowers our expectations to increase our chances of meeting our goals. We’ve become a country that has made it a practice to do what’s profitable, what benefits our economy the most, rather than what’s right for the world. Most of all, we’ve become a country that seems to have more loyalty to ourselves than to the larger whole of which we should be a part – we care more about how we as a country are doing financially than we do about how our world is doing environmentally. We have alienated ourselves in the international environmental community and have become our own separate world. We as Americans are citizens of America (most of us), but we’re more than that – we’re citizens of the world – and we have a responsibility to ourselves, our children, and our planet to clean up our act and do our part to counteract Global Warming.

What is biofuel?
Biofuel is essentially slightly modified used cooking oil. It can be used in any standard diesel engine and can be obtained from many restaurants and establishments for little or no cost. It has virutally no emissions and is safe to use. For more information on biofuel, please click on our “Check Out Biodiesel!” link on the left side of our page.

What is a Carbon Footprint?
The term ‘Carbon Footprint’ refers to the extent of which an individual influences the environment by emitting carbon dioxide and other carbon emissions. It is used as a measure of individual pollution contribution. For more information on carbon footprints and how to calculate and reduce your carbon footprint, please click on our “Carbon Footprint Calculator” and “Carbon Footprint Reduction” links on the left side of our page.

your site is good enough for informations that i need to know..as an individual i want to contribute from healing our world, by understanding the worlds call to renew the earth..ijust love the nature and the wildlife. I pray and Hope that Earth will stay as beautiful as i’ve seen it!! Thanks!!!

Comment by Victoria

very nice site :)
it’s necessary to tell everyone about global warming.

Comment by indian

I just wish someone could make a blog about global warming without being so biased as you are. I read your blog to find out about global warming and right away I see this- “The scientific community as a whole has determined through all research that global warming is a problem caused by human influence.” Which is very untrue. There are tons of scientists out there that believe that the earth is going through a natural phase. And of course you couldn’t make a blog without insulting the bush administration…very immature. Try a much less biased approach next time.

Comment by Charles

It is shocking that US presidents have undermined the agenda of cutting greenhouse gas consumption, Where will the world go? What is this? What is the way out? I pray to Mahavatar Babaji — the guardian of this age — to arrest this scenario.

Planetary Weather and Planetary Rotation.
It is a striking feature of planetary convection systems that they exhibit directionality. One of the most significant factors determining climatic conditions on any planet is likely to be the effect of planetary rotation. This force operates independently of temperature and may well be more significant than variability in the chemical composition of atmospheric gas or the liquid of the oceans.
In the upper atmosphere or stratosphere the jet stream flows from West to East. This fact is presumably explained by the direction of the earth’s rotation. Closer to the surface of the planet there is a contra-flow system that also exhibits a similar directionality. Water rising in the east falls on the land mass lying to the west. For example, water from the Indian Ocean falls in Africa. Water from the Atlantic falls in Brazil and water from the Pacific falls in Queensland and South Eastern Asia. As a result of such rainfall patterns, the major desert areas tend to lie on the Western side of continental land masses. In Africa there is Namibia and Western Sahara. In the Americas there are the deserts of Chile and California. In Asia much of the desert is found in the south western part of the land mass.
A similar directionality exists in the surface liquid of the planet. The Gulf Stream is the best known part of a global conveyer belt of ocean currents that takes 1000 years approx. to circulate the planetary ocean system. The cool high density current flows in an east to west direction, whilst the faster flowing, lower density current flow in a west to east direction.
It is a reasonable prediction that a similar conveyor belt must exist in the internal liquid core of the planet. Low density fast moving material will flow from west to east whilst a deeper current of hot dense material will circulate in an east to west direction closer to the centre of the planet.
The speed of rotation is presumably fastest in the equatorial or tropical zone. I n regard to weather systems, one therefore finds the active tropical weather systems enclosed by stable high pressure areas in the polar regions.
A cross section of the planet shows it to be composed of a gas atmosphere and two liquid zones, the inner core and the oceans. It is probable that this causal mechanism, planetary rotation, dominates the effects of minor variations in temperature or CO2 composition. There are other many factors effecting climate including the distribution of the continental land mass and the seasonal gyration in axis of the planet. The notion that a fractional change in the level of Co2 could have such large effects on climate is intrinsically improbable.

“The developed countries should be responsible for halting the process of global warming.”

With this generic will run a program of actions organized by the UN. Club debates in School “Gaudeamus” will hold in March a public debate with the motion “People should take measures for prevention of global warming.”
Students were actively involved in the activities proposed in the months September to December 2008, achieving a number of projects aimed at raising public about environmental issues and especially climate change.
At the beginning of 2009 were announced on the site in cooperation with the UN Global Debates the conditions of the second stage, where http://www.thepeoplespeak.org/activities/globaldebates.html will be also organized several activities.
We believe that the developed countries are obliged to invest more to prevent global warming process, as more consumers in nature and should demonstrate greater responsibility for solving environmental problems.
Students debate club will organize a public debate on 18 March 2009 at 14.00, will be presented a draft resolution of global warming, Photo essay writing, preparing briefs, papers published in the media, sending some steps leaders by creating PSA video movies, video games, create websites, blog,s, lessons, projects, meetings with resource persons etc..
All these actions are designed to activate youth and to raise the attention of governments to take steps to have a different attitude towards them and towards nature, towards the climate in general and against the human and natural. Results of phase I can see on the site:

Topical interest: Global warming has become a topical issue in recent years. Much has been written and said, in many cases without any real knowledge of the issues involved. It has become a rallying call of various factions, many of whom have legitimate concerns, but some of whom are seemingly bent on simply asserting their own views over those of others. Sometimes these factions act with good intent, but often they are led by unreasonable emotion. The existence and consequences of global warming are now so widely accepted that people who have little knowledge of the facts or history of the subject routinely talk about it as though all the popular assumptions were well proven.
In order to aid the understanding of the issues and identify the facts, fiction and assumptions, both reasonable and unreasonable, this paper attempts to explain the history of this process, its causes and effects. The development of the world and the future development of society also need to be considered, because these have a significant impact on the whole issue.
It does not set out to justify either the creation of emissions or energy misuse. Indeed, there are many reasons why emissions should be reduced and there are many useful means of reducing energy consumption or using alternative energy sources. It is often the case that measures adopted to counter global warming are prudent for other ecological reasons. In this sense, the drive to counter global warming may have some very good side effects. However, this paper sets out to eradicate some of the gloom and despondency that now seems to accompany almost all predictions about the future of wildlife and the environment in general.
Climate change is happening and humans are contributing to it!
No one disputes that Earth’s climate is changing or that atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases have increased as a result of human activities. The concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide are higher now than at any time during the last 420,000 years.
Overwhelming scientific evidence supports the conclusion that observed changes in the global climate are, in large part, due to human activities and primarily related to fossil-fuel consumption patterns. Without urgent action to curb greenhouse-gas emissions, the Earth will become warmer by 2050 than at anytime in the last 10,000 years.
Temperatures provide the clearest evidence that the climate is changing and globally the average temperature has risen by more than 0.7 °C over the last 100 years.
The natural greenhouse gas effect keeps Earth much warmer than it would otherwise be, without it Earth would be extremely cold. Greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane and water vapour behave like a blanket around Earth. These gases allow the Sun’s rays to reach Earth’s surface but impede the heat they create from escaping back into space.
Any increases in the levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere mean that more heat is trapped and global temperatures increase – an effect known as ‘global warming’.
There is indisputable evidence from observations that the Earth is warming. Concentrations of CO2, created largely by the burning of fossil fuels, are now much higher, and increasing at a much faster rate, than at any time in the last 600,000 years. Because CO2 is a greenhouse gas, the increased concentrations have contributed to the recent warming and probably most of the warming over the last 50 years.
The rise in global surface temperature has averaged more than 0.15 °C per decade since the mid-1970s. Warming has been unprecedented in at least the last 50 years, and the 17 warmest years have all occurred in the last 20 years. This does not mean that next year will necessarily be warmer than last year, but the long-term trend is for rising temperatures.
A simple mathematical calculation of the temperature change over the latest decade (1998-2007) alone shows a continued warming of 0.1 °C per decade. The warming trend can be seen in the graph of observed global temperatures. The red bars show the global annual surface temperature, which exhibit year-to-year variability. The blue line clearly shows the upward trend, far greater than the uncertainties, which are shown as thin black bars. The recent slight slowing of the warming is due to a shift towards more-frequent La Niña conditions in the Pacific since 1998. These bring cool water up from the depths of the Pacific Ocean, cooling global temperatures.
The purpose of the research: The ample studying of the projects from the ecological problems compartment, especially those concerning climate change and its influence on Earth’s future.
Methods of research: individual research; observing changes in economy, social changes; public debates; group collaborations.

I. Climate change – a global issue

Causes of climate change
“It is man-made and it is essentially [caused by] fossil fuel burning,
increased methane production… and so on.” (Professor David King)

The current climate change is not just part of a natural cycle. Earth’s climate is complex and influenced by many things, particularly changes in its orbit, volcanic eruptions, and changes in the energy emitted from the Sun. It is well known that the world has experienced warm or cold periods in the past without any interference from humans. The ice ages are good examples of global changes to the climate, and warm periods have seen grapes grown across much of Britain.
Over the several hundred thousand years covered by the ice core record, the temperature changes were primarily driven by changes in the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. Over this period, changes in temperature did drive changes in carbon dioxide (CO2). Since the Industrial Revolution (over the last 100 years), CO2 concentrations have increased by 30% due to human-induced emissions from fossil fuels.
The bottom line is that temperature and CO2 concentrations are linked. In recent ice ages, natural changes in the climate, such as those due to orbit changes, led to cooling of the climate system. This caused a fall in CO2 concentrations which weakened the greenhouse effect and amplified the cooling. Now the link between temperature and CO2 is working in the opposite direction. Human-induced increases in CO2 are driving the greenhouse effect and amplifying the recent warming.
The Earth is heated by the sun; solar radiation passes through the atmosphere and is absorbed at the Earth’s surface (except for a small portion that is reflected back into space). This heat is readily lost; it is emitted from the surface as infra-red radiation. Fortunately, this infra-red radiation cannot escape the atmosphere as easily as the solar radiation can enter. Instead, some of it is ‘trapped’ by a number of gases; these gases act in a similar, yet different, way to the glass in a greenhouse – heat is allowed in but cannot get out – hence we have the ‘Greenhouse Effect’. Were it not for this natural greenhouse effect the Earth would be at least 30°C cooler and life as we know it would not exist. Unfortunately, recent human activities are enhancing the natural greenhouse effect. The concentrations of certain greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are increasing therefore more of the infra-red radiation emitted by the Earth’s surface is being trapped. The planet is losing less heat and as a result we are beginning to experience “Global Warming”. The major greenhouse gases are: water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, CFCs (and their replacements), and ozone. Some of these occur naturally, some result only from human activity, while others occur both naturally and as a result of human activity. The contribution of each gas to the greenhouse effect is a function of three factors: Atmospheric lifetime – simply, how many years the gas remains active in the atmosphere; Global warming potential (GWP) – a relative measure of how effective the gas is at preventing the passage of infra-red radiation; Atmospheric concentration – usually measured in parts per million.
If we continue emitting greenhouse gases this warming will continue and delaying action will make the problem more difficult to fix. The global average temperature will increase by 2 to 3 °C this century – according to one of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) mid-range estimates (blue line on the graph below). This rise in temperature means that the Earth will experience a greater climate change than it has for at least 10,000 years and it would be difficult for many people and ecosystems to adapt to this rapid change.
A major source of carbon dioxide is the power plants. These power plants emit large amounts of carbon dioxide produced from burning of fossil fuels for the purpose of electricity generation. Coal is the major fuel that is burnt in these power plants. Coal produces around 1.7 times as much carbon dioxide per unit of energy when flamed as does natural gas and 1.25 times as much as oil. The coal gives out eighty percent more carbon per unit of energy it produces as compared to natural gas. Another major source of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is the emission from the cars and other vehicles. About twenty percent of carbon dioxide emitted in the atmosphere comes from burning of gasoline in the engines of the vehicles. This is true for most of the developed countries. Moreover if sports bike and vehicles that are essentially designed for rough terrain, emit more carbon dioxide when used for general purpose on roads. It is always better to use vehicles designed for city driving on the city roads.
Buildings, both commercial and residential represent a larger source of global warming pollution than cars and trucks. Building of these structures require a lot of fuel to be burnt which emits a large amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
The second major greenhouse gas after carbon dioxide, which causes global warming, is Methane. Methane is more than 20 times as effectual as CO2 at entrapping heat in the atmosphere. Methane is obtained from resources such as rice paddies, bovine flatulence, bacteria in bogs and fossil fuel manufacture. Almost in all parts of the world, rice is grown on flooded fields. When fields are flooded, anaerobic situation build up and the organic matter in the soil decays, releasing methane to the atmosphere. Nitrous oxide, which is a colourless gas with a sweet odour, is another green house gas. The main sources of nitrous oxide include nylon and nitric acid production, cars with catalytic converters, the use of fertilizers in agriculture and the burning of organic matter. Greater emissions of nitrous oxides in the recent decades is leading global warming
Another major cause of global warming is deforestation. Deforestation is to be blamed for 25% of all carbon dioxide release entering the atmosphere, by the cutting and burning of about 34 million acres of trees each year. Trees collect the CO2 that we breathe out and give away from various other sources, and they give back oxygen that we breathe in. Thus, cutting of trees is leading to greater concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Greater urbanization, requirement of land for factories and buildings, requirement of timber are all reasons that are leading to deforestation, which in turn is leading to global warming.
These temperature increases are likely to result in an increased frequency and severity of weather events such as heat waves, storms and flooding. Rising levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere could set in motion large-scale changes in Earth’s natural systems. Some of these could be irreversible – the melting of large ice sheets will result in major consequences for low-lying areas throughout the world.

i pleasure to joint this institution,because i really fell that our environment is in danger.
god has given this gift to human,but humans are only destroying this beautiful environment,So i feel we have to follow certain rules and regulations of this beautiful environment.

Comment by Dipesh

what are the various issues of global warming

Comment by dinesh

I couldn’t agree more that we all need to take some kind of action to help reduce our impact on our planet. One way that I have found to have a big impact is to work with kids to teach them that they can make a difference.

There is a company called Go Green Fundraising that offers earth friendly fundraiser options. It is a great way to get the conversation on environmentalism started.

Thank u

Comment by Gezahegn Mengiste

Where was the issue of global warming first seen?

How was it found to be an issue?

Comment by Mike V

Where is your evidence to back this up? i see no data and therefore refuse to believe your absurd statements. In fact many scientists now have determind that we are going through global cooling and that the polar ice caps act as a thermostat for the earth. The earth heats up, the caps melt, they cool the water, thus creating a cooling effect on the earth. Scientists believe that this is more then enough of a temperature decrease to cause the caps to re-freeze, and increase in size. And this “man made” problem is a out of date theory that most scientists have thrown aside. One reason that it has been tossed aside, is that one volcanic eruption puts more carbon in the atmosphere, then 5 years of all man made activity, and these are low estimates. And a volcanic eruption happens about once a week. So before you go and soil your name any more, look at the data.

Comment by Eric Wood

I am a student and now im confused. Which is correct actually? well you said volcanic eruption contribute more carbon in the atmosphere than human activity does but this website says the opposite.

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=how-do-volcanoes-affect-w

the writer is Karen Harpp, an assistant professor of geology at Colgate University, provides this explanation:
(extract from the explanation)
Nevertheless, there is growing concern that our production of gases such as CO2 from the burning of fossil fuels may be pushing the system a little too far, resulting in excessive warming on a global scale. There is no doubt that volcanic eruptions add CO2 to the atmosphere, but compared to the quantity produced by human activities, their impact is virtually trivial: volcanic eruptions produce about 110 million tons of CO2 each year, whereas human activities contribute almost 10,000 times that quantity.

What can you say to this?

Comment by Joanne Kely

Many just like the end result of climate legislation. they dont care if the theory is correct. they are a perfect example of believing that “end justifies the means.” they are also against the US being a superpower. they want the US to be just another country within the world. Stand up people! the US is the greatest country in world. be proud, dont work to make us weaker through junk science.

thanx… this helped a bit

Comment by karisa

We need to save our earth!! nobody even cares about our earth they tried to destroy it. plus america should really start protecting our earth instead of destroying it like we are now!! so people start to protect our earth!!!!!!!

Comment by Nadine

i wuz working on a skool project and it helped a little
thanx, earthgirl928

CCCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLL

Comment by BOB

Look at all that pollution. We are the ones that caused it and we are the ones who should save it. It is like taking apart your own home and never replacing the walls or the toys(animals)! We need to change and the sooner the better for our environment !!!!!!!

Comment by M.Y.O.B

WE SHOULD ALL PROTECT OUR WORLD BUT NOT DESTROY IT!

Comment by JORDAN

…i think it is more likely that the gov’t. should give more importance to our environment,the new pres. should be aware of what was happening to our country recently.He,as the new leader,should not only focused on fighting corruption.They must be able to persuade our fellowmen to join the project they will going to form aiming to protect and save our mother earh.

Comment by jflorence

…oh!!! i forgot to say that i’m not actually against the new leader.I just want to clarify that i only want to give a comment regarding our suffering mother earth.I know he can think of a solution for this certain problem.

Comment by jflorence

people what are solutions for the global warming???? please help I need answer now!!! help! I hope you will!

Comment by bahar

a very well put up article on the prevailing issues of today and the cornerstone issue of the future. We all must join our hands together for sustanable development keeping in mind the needs of the environment. Be it america or any other country ,we all must act united for the day after tomorrow especially in such a global era

Comment by leodigiking

seeing all this going on today, it makes u think were this world is coming to. I mean not only with global warming, but with war and famine this world is just going downhill. i think this proves that man cannot fix this earth. but then who can?

Comment by joe

We all need to pay attention to what we’re doing to our earth, the only problem is after the little ressesion no one seams to give a crap. I mean yes in my home town we now have larger recycling bins … however whether or not people actually use them is a totally diffenent story when dealing with what we are now. Something is wrong with us and we need to change.

Comment by Evangeline

we all need to pay attention to this otherwise our world will end quicker than yu othink!

Comment by chloe

It’s common knowledge that all trees or any plants use carbon dioxide during the process of photosynthesis and produce oxygen and water vapor as end product. So big scale of tree planting or reforestation program by theory should help to slow down the rate of global warming. I hope I ma right.

Comment by S F Teng

is human behavior is wrong in treating the earth, such as digging of natural resources without limits among other logging till bald. a thinking man’s greed for his own benefit

Comment by Achmad Kusnadi

effort to ward to global warming mitigation strategies so far not promising by all actors so i will like to say all need to stand for peace green world.

Comment by solomon tadese

what problems is earth facing?

Comment by Zina Narayan

Climate changes had been happening ever since (from ice age to date). Carbon dioxide is not only produced by burning fossils or its derivatives (petroleum, coal) but also by human discharges (as we breathe, perspire, and other wastes), rotten plants & animals, volcanoes, and the largest percentage – sea or ocean. NASA’s latest advisory of a getting hotter environment could be based on their latest finding (by far reaching UV telescope) of nuclear magnitude explosions in the sun’s surface this June 7, 2011 in which the heat radiated away from the sun but travels not directly to earth’s direction. Thus the relative effect our planet is recently experiencing. See http://science.slashdot.org/story/11/06/07/2224225/Massive-Explosion-On-the-Sun from the web. By the way sometime in 2009, earth’s temperature was reported as lowering which also cause panic to global warming advocates, see http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2096167/earths_temperature_falling_global_warming.html. Earth’s warming could be mainly, at most rapid change, affected by the sun’s surface activities, by which no mortal can control – it’s Gods will. As such, many observers have argued that global warming advocates only mean business, as processes and equipment believed to counter global warming are not for free. None the less, we have to make our environment clean and apt for living, as this is the only planet we can live at least for our lifetime.

Comment by Joe

Not only carbon dioxide but other green house gases also…

Comment by Joe

Im in science right now and this helped me allot because in science we are doing (Environmental Issues).. And i have decided to do Global warming.

Comment by Luke

Nowaday every one should be aware of this issue and we should stop that human activities which are responsible for cause of globalwarming

Just one suggestion ,I would request people to control their population.The way they think about their needs, at the same time they should also think about the needs of the nature. ”Earth is only planet to have such beautiful creatures and things, so we should try to preserve them and not to destroy them”.

”One must remember that the man must control nature and at the same time he must also control his number”.So guys its a request to u that as u all think about ur selves ,in the same way also think about our nature, try to control ur population cozzz it is the biggest threat to our environment.Earth is the only planet to have such wonders. so, try to protect it rather than destroying. :)

Arguments Against Global Warming
http://argumentsagainstglobalwarming.org/

Even though there are so many talks and forums that have been given to teach the people about global warming, there are still so many arguments about global warming that have arisen over the years. Most of the arguments about global warming are not facts and are just speculations of people or their assumptions about what they think is happening to the world.

By putting my car in the garage, and leaving it there, I have reduced my carbon footprint dramatically. I am living an complete bicycle lifestyle, even through this Canadian winter. I’ve written several tips for those who also want to take direct personal action to halt global warming by living a cycling-centric lifestyle. Those that wish to continue driving when they don’t really have to can find a way to help by donating a ‘carbon credit’ to me… if governments won’t institute carbon taxes, individuals can go ahead raise the price of their carbon themselves by helping fund me as I offset their carbon footprints. I believe I have the principals of climate justice correct: those who wish to continue to produce carbon emissions purchase credits to do so from those who don’t have the means to emit carbon in the first place. That would be someone like me, for instance.

I think we all need to realise and remember that the earth goes through cycles on it’s own, The earth renews and refreshes it self and has done this for as long back as we are able to calculate. We may be hurrying the process up, by green house gasses and by mutilating it. Regaurdless the earth will clean herself up, and start anew.

Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.

Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?

My blog covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly
benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free
to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

Great blog by the way!
