Global Warming Science

What Is The Science on Global Warming?

Global warming science fact:

The world is getting warmer. The heat waves in Great Britain should be evidence enough to prove this; since it probably isn’t for most people, The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change determined that the global temperature is going rise over the next several years by a figure between 2.5 degrees and 10 degrees Fahrenheit.

Global warming science fact:

More greenhouse gases (Notably Carbon Dioxide and Methane) have been released into the atmosphere since 1900 than the entire history of the world. The industrial revolution brought on many economic opportunities, afforded by discoveries that allowed us to do amazing things by using coal, and then later petrol for fuel. The biggest increase of these immersions took place in the years after 1950. The amount of CO2 and Methane released into the air, yearly, worldwide, since 1980, is measurable in millions of metric tons.
Global warming science fact: Carbon Dioxide and Methane trap heat in the atmosphere. This is why they are called greenhouse gases. While Earth’s atmosphere is capable of purging pollutants, the massive amount of carbon we have been releasing into the air would take more than two centuries to get rid of.

Global warming science fact:

The measurable amounts of greenhouse gases coincide directly with recent abnormal climate changes, such as glacial retreat, rain and flooding during continental dry seasons, drought during rainy seasons, etc., when taking the planet’s oceans into account as a delaying factor.

Global warming science fact:

The 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons were both more active than expected. (In fact, the Hurricane Name List was exhausted in 2005, and the extra hurricanes were given names out of the Greek alphabet.) Hurricane activity is directly impacted by the temperature of the ocean water.  The oceans, particularly the Atlantic, have been warmer than usual.

Conclusion:

Massive amounts of carbon dioxide and methane released into the air have trapped significant amounts of heat in Earth’s atmosphere, increasing the global temperature and causing environmental upheaval. If measures are not taken to lessen the amounts of carbon and methane released, the global warming phenomenon will cause severe climate shifts that will create massive ecological and economic problems.
