|Global Warming leads to Climate change!|
The threat of GLOBAL WARMING is -NOT- that it gets a few degrees warmer.. |
The threats are:
Unhealthy air + radiation
Higher food prices!
Scarce drinking water!
More violent storms!
Get facts about hurricanes!
More flooding + changing Earthquake patterns!
Higher sea levels through melting ice!
Higher sea levels through expanding water volume!
Spreading diseases and pests.
More starving humans!
More illegal immigrants.
What are the reasons for global warming?
A) Drastic rise in Earth's CO2 + methane levels caused by burning fossil fuels.
B) Drastic rise in Earth's population.
C) Drastic rise in Earth's energy consumption!
Can you see a trend?
Can you see a Carbon dioxide level trend? Is it possible that someone cannot see it?

shows surface temperature increases!
The global temperature has risen to a record for a 12-month period, according to NASA.
The analysis undermines the case made by climate skeptics, who have used the slight cooling trend in recent years to argue that man-made emissions are not causing global warming.
The average surface temperature for the year to the end of June was about 0.67 of a degree Celsius (1.21 degree Fahrenheit) higher than the 1951 to 1980 average, according to NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.|
The NASA study said: “We conclude that there has been no reduction in the global warming trend of 0.15-0.20°C/decade that began in the late 1970s.”

The red colors show an increase of temperatures!
< Some scientists say that rapid climate shift, climate disruption, climate shock, climate breakdown, climate failure, are better explaining words than the word global warming!
Hurricanes + storm with tons of rain,
droughts and floods,
food prices climbing, drinking water gets expensive!
High energy demand caused by violent weather,
Electricity producing power plants need
huge amounts of water for cooling.
High air pollution produced by power plants ..
Do we really want to face that?
Do we really want our children to suffer?
Humans need to live a sustainable life style to survive!
Update from 26 climatologists—including 14 IPCC members.|
Sea levels could rise and methane-laden arctic permafrost could melt much sooner than the panel had anticipated. The essence of the new report is that things are grimmer than the IPCC has reported.
The report concluded that the warming-induced melting of the Greenland ice sheet could create significant sea-level rise in this century, that sea level rise could be 1.9 mm.|
The new diagnosis finds that arctic sea ice is melting 40 % faster than the panel estimated just a few years ago.
Satellites have found that the global average for rising sea levels was 3.4 millimeters per year from 1993-2013.
The report clearly states: if global warming is to be limited to a maximum of 2°C above pre-industrial values, global emissions need to peak between 2015 and 2020 and then decline rapidly.
You see that Bear Springs Blossom's prognosis from 2004, which was attacked by many, was not faulty at all.
Global carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels in 2013 were 45 % higher than those in 1990. Even if global emission rates are stabilized at present-day levels, just 20 more years of emissions would give a 25 percent probability that warming exceeds 2°C, even with zero emissions after 2030. Every year of delayed action increases the chances of exceeding 3°C warming.
Recent global temperatures demonstrate human-induced warming:
Over the past 25 years temperatures have increased at a rate of 0.19°C per decade. Natural, short-term fluctuations are occurring as usual, but there have been no significant changes in the underlying warming trend.
Acceleration of melting of ice-sheets, glaciers and ice-caps can be seen on a wide array of satellite and ice measurements. The Greenland and Antarctic ice-sheets are losing mass at an increasing rate. Melting of glaciers and ice-caps will change the reflection rate. More sun rays will hit the ground warming up the air above it.

Global Warming vs. Climate Change
You will find a lot of references to global warming, but
other publications use the word climate change.
We think the word climate change better describes the problem.
Global warming describes the average global surface temperature increase from human emissions of greenhouse gases.
1975 the Geo-chemist W. Broecker used the word in an Science article:
"Climatic Change: Are We on the Brink of a Pronounced Global Warming?"
1979, the National Academy of Science study of carbon dioxide's impact on climate, abandoned the old term "inadvertent climate modification."
Jule Charney of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, declared:
"if carbon dioxide continues to increase, we find no reason to doubt that climate changes will result and no reason to believe that these changes will be negligible."
When we talk about surface temperature change, we use the term 'global warming '.
When we discuss the many other changes that have erupted by increasing carbon dioxide, we use the term 'climate change'.
1988 another term appeared 'global change'. Many scientists started to talk about other kinds of change in addition to climate change.
Also in 1988, NASA scientist James E. Hansen had testified to Congress about climate, referring to global warming.
"Global warming has reached a level such that we can ascribe with a high degree of confidence a cause and effect relationship between the greenhouse effect and the observed warming."
At the top of this website we have tried to explain that a few degree temperature change is not the strongest effect of our changing climate.
Changes to precipitation patterns and sea level are likely to have a much greater impact on humans!
Now you know why we like the term 'global climate change' better - it is just more accurate.
Conservation Education (CE) is the combination of two words that have become one word to educators.
