Global warming is sadly very real.

I hate to break it to everyone, but global warming is not a scare tactic, it is very real. How do I know this, because over half of the ices thickness, in the coldest places in the world Antarctica, the Arctic, South pole, North pole, Siberia and, Greenland has melted since 1980, this also effects the animals. Polar Bears are dying, because they have little ice to hunt from, it is also causing huge groups of Walruses, to all gather in the same place, which is not normal and, many are crushed to death or killed in disputes. The 500 miles of frozen Ocean that is starting to melt, isn't even the biggest problem. Glaciers that have remained frozen, for thousands of years are melting and, collapsing everyday.

It is real but science and politicians are making as if it is all normal. It was the same in Noah's day. Not to worry, all is normal, not.

No it's not completely natural or normal, humans are needlessly polluting the Earth everyday and, I agree just like in Noah's day.

I agree. When we took a cruise to Alaska, our cruise ship stopped in the middle of Glacier Bay. The captain came on the loud speaker and said this is where he had stopped the ship ten years before to see glaciers; at the time, there was not a glacier in sight. He then moved the ship forward for another 1/2 hour before we could see glaciers. That was 10 years ago. I'm sure many more have melted since then.

Yeah, it's sad. I heard another story about a community. I think in Alaska, they used to have giant glaciers, that acted as a burrier keeping the sea from their island, but now they are gone and, the people have to use cement blocks.

I'm working on a book addressing how to defeat climate change, and I talk about how to stop the oceans from rising. Unfortunately it takes global participation, so I don't think it would be resisted very quickly. But if everyone works together it can be overcome.

@TRBRocks420 We need to store the water in our aquifers and arid lands and change how we approach flood control and drought management. It's not too difficult (just time consuming) and once done it would be good for generations, as well as being very economical.

I agree TRBRrocks 420 . One thing we have to consider is that the planet goes through cyclical changes over thousands of years. Even though factories and cars have only been around for about 100 years, it is possible that the earth is just going through another heating cycle. That doesn't change the fact though that the animals and humans are in danger.

@TRBRocks420 I have 2 major gripes. #1 The worlds oceans are garbage dumps. There is one in the Atlantic ocean that is the size of Texas. Barges carry the cities garbage out there and dump it. #2 The nuclear waste that is kept below ground in caves. In 2007 the DOE mandated that 75% of all nuclear waste to go underground in the Yucca Mountains in Nevada. This waste is transported by trains to that location. 77,000 tons of radioactive nuclear waste is transported twice per week. 1 train passes parallel to the highway within 1,000 yards from all hotels on the Vegas strip.

Global warming is real, is a problem, but is a natural part of the Earth's cycle. The problem is we are hurrying it along. We cannot stop it. We should do everything we can to reduce the effect we are having on making it faster.

@TRBRocks420 Global warming is much discussed topic which TRB has put the onus to individual to do something to slow down the process down. It is agreed that the individuals have roles to play in this regard but all the countries of this world have far greater responsibilities and the World Body UNO sit from time to time what to do and what not to do. Please see the recommendations of the last conference held in Paris last year.This a very very grave and serious matter and to speak candidly I am constrained to say that the whole world is at the mercy of this menace. The space is too limited to discuss individual's responsibility and I ask everybody to see reports in newspaper, radio , television etc.

The ice caps melting is a real problem. Back in 1974 I was in Alaska and went to see the Portage Glaciers I think it was called. It was huge, now it's melted a lot and is very small.

its 75 degrees Fahrenheit here in Alabama and last year on this day It was 15 degrees. People think oh its still cold where I live but don't realize that there may be less snow, maybe not as cold as it was before and that there are other places outside of their small space of a town. THERES A VAST WORLD OUT THERE FOLKS AND THINGS ARE CHANGING IN IT. Some people should understand that we have done lots of things to hurt this planet and that it will eventually clean house one way or another and MOTHER NATURE ALWAYS WINS.

It is certainly a reality, but with so many different views on the 'hows and why's', and governments foot shuffling on necessary actions...mainly financial of course. Someone asked the question the other day, .....if records of weather and the like, don't go back very far (which they don't)...how do we know that similar events haven't happened before? Valid, inasmuch, as the answer is WE DON'T!

I personally believe a lot of it is caused by humans, they pollute the Earth and, it's oceans, like they are sewer dumps. Scientists are studying and, trying to find out more as we speak, the reason a lot of people say it's natural is the activity's that are polluting the Earth make them money, but yes you're right, we don't know for sure.

I don't mind if the world would end for us, that could give another chance for plants and animals to live again. unless, it's nuke end that is, we are killing the planet and if the plants and animals die, then we will die.

Shouldn't we call it global change because as well heating and melting there is a whole lot of other things going on. I'm wonder with a rise in surface and ocean temperature if the core pressure might be affected as well eventually which would cause earth quakes and volcano activity. Too bad the dinosaurs didn't keep records. A really bad volcano eruption could drive the cycle ahead quickly as well.

Yes, it can cause all kinds of things and, volcano's are also a big part of what causes global warming. The Dinosaurs were killed by a giant asteroid though.

@TRBRocks420 I guess the planet was on the other side of the cycle going into ice age? Also the continents shift. I sometimes look at things that cause big changes like asteroids and think of mankind as just another part of the process. Wave goodbye.

@Bluedoll The ice age was caused by a super volcano and, the ash blocked out the sun. Yes, but we have ways now to track asteroids and, it's believed we could nudge one out of the way
