GLOBAL WARMING - Does It Really Exist??


I suppose there isn't a person on our planet that hasn't either voiced his or her opinion or thought
about this question and its validity over the past decade..."Does Global Warming Really Exist"?
According to Merriam Webster, the definition of global warming is..
"an increase in the earth's atmospheric and oceanic temperatures widely predicted to occur due to an increase in the greenhouse effect resulting especially from pollution".
The answer to the question,"Does Global Warming Really Exist" should be simple, Shouldn't It?

Every time I turn on the tv, radio, podcast or video, the topic of global warming and how its believed to be "a fabrication by tree huggers" by many - is being relayed to the listeners/viewers and causing false unreliable information.  Global warming doesn't exist? Step outside, watch/study a reliable weather resource or just stay in touch with the global news and it should be quite clear that our planet is thermally changing. 

If we take a look at the scientific data relating to our earths atmosphere and ocean temperatures which have been recorded since 1880, it clearly visualizes an increase in temperatures of the air and oceans, won't that answer the question, "does global warming exist"?

According to NASA and the NOAA, we have experienced most of our warming on record (don't forget we have only been keeping formal record since 1880) within the past 35 years highlighting the year 2015 having logged in with the highest temperatures on record. Additionally, statistical records depict that the past 15 of the 16 warmest years have occurred since the year 2001.  

I could ramble on and on throwing out facts an figures to support the statement that Global Warming Does Exist but I won't bore you.  If you have even read this far and are interested in seeing some changes in our ice glaciers take a look at the link below; (pics are of the exact spot in Alaska taken in 1880 and then in 2005-you wont recognize the spot).
