DOES ANYONE HAVE AN OPINION ON HOW THIS WILL AFFECT US ALL

Global warming is increasing in global temperature which makes polar ice melt.Now polar ice is melting at a faster rate than all scientists have thought.Polar ice melting can cause increase in sea level.This can make London,Amsterdam AND Newyork under water.This is how it will affect us. The EPA says"Rising global temperatures are expected to raise sea level, and change precipitation and other local climate conditions. Changing regional climate could alter forests, crop yields, and water supplies. It could also affect human health, animals, and many types of ecosystems. Deserts may expand into existing rangelands, and features of some of our National Parks may be permanently altered. Most of the United States is expected to warm, although sulfates may limit warming in some areas. Scientists currently are unable to determine which parts of the United States will become wetter or drier, but there is likely to be an overall trend toward increased precipitation and evaporation, more intense rainstorms, and drier soils. Unfortunately, many of the potentially most important impacts depend upon whether rainfall increases or decreases, which can not be reliably projected for specific areas. "

Global warming will drastically effect life as we know it. Go to any of the cities who experienced a burst in population due to Hurricane Katrina. Now multiply how Katrina effected the world by 1 million and you will get an idea of how dangerous global warming is and how we must do everything in our power to slow and possibly reverse the process.
