All in the news, on TV, in magazines, newspapers, and the radio we hear about global warming and the havoc it is wreaking on our poor planet. Many people believe everything that is reported, hook, line, and sinker and jump on the band wagon to save the universe while others roll their eyes and go right along with their daily lives not caring one iota about the world around them. So what is the real deal here? Are we damaging our planet, or is it all just a bunch of hype?
To answer these questions, we must first look at what global warming is and what the actual cause of this phenomenon is. Global warming is defined as the unusually rapid increase in the Earth’s normal or average surface temperature. Over the past century there has been an increase in temperature. Many believe that this is primarily due to the greenhouse gases that are released by people burning fossil fuels. Although a vast number of high profiled political figures and celebrities claim that modern day humanity is the cause of global warming and unless it is stopped our little planet is doomed, there are those who would disagree.
The earth has been going through the cycle of heating up and then cooling down for years. It is nothing new under the sun. More than 17,000 scientists signed a petition circulated by the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine that basically states the “there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate.” So, what is the truth?
It is very confusing as well as concerting to hear reports that man is destroying the planet. True enough, we have done a lot of damage to this beautiful place we call Earth, but to say that driving our SUV’s down the road is going to cause a tsunami in other parts of the world does seem a little far fetched. Perhaps the hot air from all the global warming arguments is indeed what is heating up our planet. Just a thought – maybe we should focus more on living in peace with and helping one another. Then the world would truly be a better place.
