6 problems caused by global warming

Changes in our climate serve as an inspiration for disaster movies. However, in reality the fate of our planet is very similar to film scripts. Here is the list of possible problems that can be triggered by the climate change.

Peter Kubler, Jane Berkley, Evelyn Dania Cooke, Gary McLean, Maureen Campbell, CharlesB, clpilot, It's now called "climate change" instead of "global warming" so that uneducated science deniers can understand what is actually happening. Did you not understand any of the facts presented to you in this piece? The changes are real and measurable. There are more hothouse gases in our atmosphere than ever before and temperature fluctuations are off the chart 3 or 4 fold compared to fluctations in the past. You cannot feel the warming as much in the atmosphere because the real change is occurring in our oceans, which cover 70% of the planet. Fish and coral, sensitive to temperature changes are dying off. Haven't you heard yet about reef bleaching? Because the oceans are measurably warmer, evaporation is more intense, creating more powerful hurricanes and rainstorms which then creates greater flooding. There is more snow for the same reason. Because the upper layers of the atmosphere are more saturated, precipitation in winter results in more snow instead of more rain. It doesn't mean the earth is cooling because we get more snow in the winter. We know from satellite imagery that the polar caps are shrinking. In the Arctic the ice ebbs in summer, then grows in the winter, but it does not return to the previous year's level. Each year for the last 50 years, the amount of ice has been dramatically shrinking. Polar bear migration has born this out. In recent years, northern regions have seen polar bears moving farther south, invading human settlements. Even more frightening is the melting of the enormous ice shelf in Antarctica. By the way, coastal cities are endangered. Venice, Italy has had to build ocean levies to prevent the increasing flooding this centuries old city has faced in the 20th and 21st centuries like never before. Yes, Gore was right. Because admitting the truth in inconvenient, you would rather selfishly live in a fantasy world and deny the truth, blithely ignoring the hellish world you are leaving your children and your grandchildren.

Rachel Bonney, I agree.... I feel sorry for the kids being born now for when they are grandparents their grandkids will suffer greatly. Connie Tiel Schoppe and Eric Brown and others who share the same ideas; that don't believe in global warming being caused by humans, you obviously don't read much, other than the political aspect of it. I do understand that there is climate change, but global warming is not natural. When the last ice age ended, The Pleistocene Epochended about 2.6 million years ago and lasted until about 11,700 years ago. It took tens of thousands of years to recede as far as it did. What is happening now, has been going on what, how many years,40, 50 at most a 100. You think that because the earth's climate changes naturally (due to any number of cyclic factors, including solar cycles, La Nina, variations in the earth's orbit/tilt) that it can't also change due to human activity? Why would one exclude the other? This continues to be the single worst argument that climate change deniers come up with... that somehow the existence of natural variability means that human-induced climate change cannot exist. It's a completely illogical argument! The sad part is even if we stopped everything causing global warming it would take a few thousand years for the earth to replenish itself... I doubt that is going to happen. How many have seen Mad Max..... Maybe Water World...

This has nothing to do with science. It is called seasonal weather and earthy events global warming is a scam made up to scare people and make others rich.

Too many people on earth. We ALL have to do our part to save what is left of our planet. Although with naysayers like Trump, we are in for a difficult task.

Unfortunately human ingenuity is constantly frustrated by human stupidity. Of course the climate is changing, and always has done, but to pretend that the world's ever increasing population (consumers to business) has no impact has to be the ultimate act of stupidity and will no doubt hasten the end of humanity. Not that I will care.

The climate of the Earth has been changing for the last 4 1/2 BILLION years.

As a meteorologist I could stop laughing when I was reading this article. The facts are much less alarming. The August 2019 temperature anomaly was +0.38 C unchanged from July. Yes, that is right less than one half of one degree above average. Not catastrophic by any stretch of the imagination.Warnings of IPCC and Al Gore stated the Arctic would be free of ice by 2013. Here it is 6 years later and there is still plenty of ice there. You environmental wackos can still blather about CO2 and clutch your worry beads but the atmosphere and oceans is not cooperating.

If you are going to promote this fiasco I'm quoting this site! All you can do is state something that has happened in Earth's past many times! There is NO Empirical evidence to AGW!

Whether you believe in man-made climate change or not...we are pumping poison into the air, water and earth which is definitely detrimental to our health. We all need to stop burying our heads in the sand, stop being lazy, stop being greedy and FIND A BETTER WAY!

Climate change or not, the environment is changing ... daily and forever. So, deniers, accept it, get over it and deal.

It's called Mother Nature... She has cleansed the earth several times with Ice Ages. That is just the way our planet works. Before people the earth was evolving with major volcanic eruptions, meteorites, continental shifts and collisions, etc. To this day we still have volcanoes erupting and sure the pollution we emit doesn't help, but there will be another Ice Age no matter what we do or don't do. Just my thoughts...

Jamie Lynn, just because you don't believe in God doesn't mean that our Creator didn't create the universe. It's not about religion, it's about relationship. You can never separate God from His creation. It doesn't take rocket science to figure that out.

Jamie Lynn, What are you talking about???? Since you are on the subject, I can't separate science from God . That is just how He created everything. Science tells us how it was done.
