Global Warming Horror Upon the Earth [Video]

The Earth

The horror of global warming has been made official.  It is at least by scientists who have released a huge climate report put out by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It is being reported that human beings has caused the planet to warm. Scientists on the panel say this with 95 percent certainty.

A couple of the reasons the earth’s temperature has gone higher because of fossil fuels being burnt, and forests being cleared. No one should be surprised at this information. All of this has been known for quite a while.

But in the report are new-fangled specifics, including human beings are going to have to keep most of our fossil-fuel in the ground if we expect the heating to stay below 2ºC, the temperature which is called perilous by the world’s leaders if we want to halt global warming horror.

People can control how much of the Earth that will warm in the upcoming decades. It can be 1ºC or less of global warming or it will be an appalling 4ºC. Human effects on the environment are more and more prevalent.

The leaders of the world agree that 2ºC is the temperature of hazardous global warming and it is to be avoided if at all possible. The IPCC report reads that we must keep most of our coal, gas, and oil in the ground if we want to obtain that objective.

Humans have released about 531 billion tons of carbon since the time of the Industrial Revolution. Researchers believe humans can only produce about another 469 billion tons if we want a decent chance  at having global warming stay under 2ºC.

At the present time, we have an estimated 3 trillion tons or so of carbon in reserve in oil, coal, and gas. That means humans are only going to be able to use about one-sixth of what we have left. The other fuels would have to stay put down in the ground.

Oceans are going to keep raising their levels even if we halted carbon usage tomorrow. Yet humans can decide between medium rise and extreme sea rise. Even if humans are able to stop some emissions even intensely, there will be some sea level rise in the future decades, maybe even a meter by the end of this century, and ongoing after that.

The below video explains in a bit more detail about the oceans and fossil fuels:

Some scientists do not believe humans will ever stop releasing emissions and have decided to look toward ideas such as “geoengineering” which might cool down the Earth. These concepts aim to intentionally try and alter the climate. There is insufficient knowledge at this time to really know what would happen and how much CO2 emissions would be moderately counterbalanced by the geoengineering during a large time period.

If this method is reliable and has the potential to significantly change the Earth’s climate temperature rise, they would also change the global water progression, and would not be able to lessen ocean acidification. With the water changing so much, we would then be right back on the path to global warming horror of untold magnitude.

    Volcanic eruptions and meteor strikes can cause nuclear winters or ice ages. The science is there, don’t let your fears get in the way of logical thinking. We are warming up the planet, and we need to do something about it.

    Don’t confuse global warming with Earth warming. No one can deny that the Earth is cooling. That’s what causes earthquakes which will kill many people.

      Roland, your last sentence was a vast leap of illogic.

      Although cooling of the earth’s MANTLE just MIGHT trigger earthquakes, global warming probably won’t affect the temperature of the mantle at all.

    Is it unimaginable that a large group of organisms can completely change the earth’s atmosphere? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Oxygenation_Event

    yet the smartest people on the planet the Chinese laugh at us – these left wing nuts are trying to shake down america for the money , tell these pin heads to go back and teach school at some leftist academy –

    Global warming has been a political issue far more than a scientific issue. Who funds the universities and gives grants to the research institutes? Government. Global warming is a franchise, and scientists who manufacture evidence to support it receive funding. Those who dare present facts that dispute it don’t.

    95 million years ago there were dinosaurs the earth was a tropical rain forest so who is the stupid one who can’t figure out we have nothing to do with Global Warming if we are warming up it’s nature but I don’t think they know anything first we are cooling off now we are warming up make up your damn mind and stop wasting money on stupid studies that just prove what we knew about the earth 95 million years ago

      Mr. Marshner, nature buried carbon in the earth thus the hot steamy dinosaur jungles cooled off enough for humans to live. Humans suck liquid forms of that carbon out of the earth and burn it. Humans dig up solid forms of that carbon and burn it. Thus returning the earth to its hot humid state. We had nothing to do with the hot dinosaur climate and we had nothing to do with the earth cooling to where it was a few thousand years ago. But it is fantasy to think that if the earth was once hot and humid that that means that our injecting tons of CO2 into the air every minute is not the cause of the earth returning to its hot humid state.

        and, pray tell, what caused each and every one of the “recent” Ice Ages of Earth? Are you saying that the Vostok Ice Core data are false or fabricated?

        If not, until you have a good explanation of what has caused the Ice AgeS, please take a look at the graphs from the Vostok cores and convince me that the Earth is not approaching its NEXT Ice Age, ok?

        Thanks.

      The atmosphere is becoming unstable because of the emissions of fossil fuels, that’s why there is a inconsistent cooling/warming effect on the earth. “Wasting” money on these studies is the least of our worries if this continues.
