With the ice caps melting and global pollution at a high do you think that the earths temperature is rising?

No. The world temperatures have always risen and fallen. Global Warming as defined by the public is nothing more than a scare tactic. While pollution may be contributing, it is no where as bad as people say it is.

yes, the earth is warming up, as you've said the polar ice caps are melting, and you know why ice melts right? also, some of the biological indicators that the global climate is warming are the species that are on the brink of being on the endagered list. the polar bear has shown a decrease in numbers attributed to this ice melting thing. just try to watch natgeo or discovery and sometimes you'll find it alarming

yes I do thing that earth temperature is raising due to this global warming. a receny study shows that one of the five ice bed we have in north pole have been metl so rapidly in last five months which was not happended in last 300 years. and more interestingly the ice bed is now floating on north sea and coming towards Canada. on the north border of canada there is a defined way for ships. now it can be acause of an accident in near future for this ice bed if it reaches that area. global warming is going to be most critical problem in near future. we all should know about it and should act accordingly so that we can minimise the global warming as much as possible. this can be done from your day to day activity too. suppose don't keep your lights trun on even if you don't need that. just think if you this simple thing you some way helping to minimise global warming. One more statistic is within last three years global temperature increased by 1.2 degree C.

Yes I do think it is real. I watched that show that was on a few months ago on the Discovery channel and it is quite frightening to hear all the things that are happening.

I'll be honest and say I don't know. What I do know though is that the weather has changed since I was a kid. Areas that always got snow, suddenly weren't while areas that seldom get snow have been slammed with it. Same with rain and floods along with heat or cold waves. Not to mention the strange way hurricanes have been the last few years. I don't know what the cause is. It could be global warming or who knows it could just be mother earth striking back for all the damage we have done to the world.

Of course Global Warming is real. Anybody who doesn't believe GW is real or happening all I have to say is take a Geography class. An intro Geography class at that. They'll teach you all about it. We are partly to blame and the earth is partly to blame as well. Although I'm not a fan of Geography (I find the class a bit boring), I did learn some interesting facts on this subject. The US really has to step up to the plate now because a lot of other countries are trying to better the earth....we have yet to join them....that bothers me.

Yes, I do believe. As a matter of fact, in about 20 minutes I'll be going to a meeting on Global warming in my town and it's a chapter off a state group. I don't know if all states have them or not, by they apparently do in Massachusetts. If you do believe in it, you should try to help. Find out if there is a local meeting that you could attend. It's very interesting. It also makes you feel good that you're helping the environment, or at least trying to. Gotta go get ready for the meeting!
