Global Warming Predictions

warming gwa Global Warming Predictions

Explanation: How much will the Earth’s surface warm up over the lives of our children? No one is sure. Compared to the past 100 million years, the Earth is currently enduring a relative cold spell, possibly about four degrees Celsius below average. Over the past 100 years, however, data indicate the average global temperature of the Earth has increased by nearly one degree Celsius. Few disagree that recent global warming is occurring, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has concluded that we humans have created a warming surge that is likely to continue. A future temperature increase like that shown on the above predictive map may cause sea levels to rise, precipitation patterns to change, and much pole ice to melt. The result could impact many local agricultures and the global economy. Geoengineering projects that might include artificial cloud creation might reduce the amount of warming sunlight that reaches the Earth’s surface.

I get it and I more or less agree. I just hate the language used:
Not sure…may cause…could impact…might include…
They move back and forth between data/facts and supposition.
Well it is titled Global Warming Predictions.

  1. This is all a bunch of hooey! We are not causing climate change, melting ice caps would actually cause the water levels to go UP, and this is a natural cycle of the planet, try and mess with it and shit will hit the fan.

  2. @TGGeko: “…may cause sea levels to rise…”

    Also, if ice caps do melt, the western part of europe, i.e. UK, France etc, is actually going to get colder, not warmer. That’s the theory, anyway.
