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).
I can't think of a better way to celebrate Earth Day than to participate in the "Canopy Project". We don't need to be wealthy or even well-off to make a difference. The only thing needed is for you to care; care about the environment around you, care about the ground you walk on and the air you breath. An excerpt from www.earthday.org: "As part of its mission to protect natural lands and preserve the environment for all people, Earth Day Network developed The Canopy Project. Rather than focusing on large scale forestry, The Canopy Project plants trees that help communities - especially the world's impoverished communities - sustain themselves and their local economies. Trees reverse the impacts of land degradation and provide food, energy and income, helping communities to achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability. Trees also filter the air and help stave off the effects of climate change. "
