These years people always talk about Global Warming.I am really confused.Does Global Warming mean the increace in temperature.I don't know the answer,I just know that climate in my hometown has greatly changed. I live near the sea.About ten years ago,summer in my hometown is hot but not too hot,and winter is cold while it is not too cold.But at present,we always feel unstandable in summer and winter,because temperature in summer is really hot,average 15 degrees higher than before,and it is almost the same in winter,the only difference is that temperature becomes lower.How about the climate change in your hometown, the same?

The weather has been pretty much the same since I recall it. It's just that there are days when the noon is just too hot, the sun really is piercing. I guess that's the impact of global warming here in my area.

Yes, global warming is about the increase of temperature in the earth's atmosphere brought about by the so called green house effect. But the warming of the earth's surface does not just stop there. Basically, as the atmosphere warms, it brought abnormal changes in the weather. Abnormal weather in effect affects animal bio-rhythm and even plant production. It has domino effect that spells disaster to human. Here in the Philippines, normally, the dry season here starts from late February to May and storms visit us in June or later. This year, everyone was shocked that we have a very hot and shortened summer. We experienced early rain last April and two typhoons ravaged the country this May. This is really strange.

we should not be confused about it. the villain is us humans. we don't care about mother earth. we don't realize that all our activities always harm the earth. so let's face the consequences.

Hi, Yes, Global warming means increase in the average temperature of atmosphere across the globe. There are multiple reasons for this, 1.Increase in the gases like CFC, CO, Co2 which trap the heat 2.Dissolving ozone layer which allows UV rays to enter into atmosphere 3.Continuous increase in the temperature and size of Sun Global warming is a result of Greenhouse effect. Its also predicted that the same Greenhouse which is causing increase in temperature today can be reason for an ICEAGE as well...!!!!!!!! Regards Sandeep S C www.technoveda.net

Global warming exist, but not because the cause normaly implied. The sun natural goes through cycles & warms the earth. In 2012, it will be the hottest summer on record, after that it will cool back down & were back to the world is frezzing over. it's stupid to say that cfc's & other human made materials is polluting to such a degree that the earth warms up, however i will point out that those can wreck eco-systems for sure
