But what about this Climate Change business? Is the globe really warming? They say that its risen 0.6° over the last 100 years. "Wow, that's not very much. Why should I care", you might say. Well,supposabley one or two degrees is enough to melt a lot of the ice caps and cause water levels to rise flooding port cities and causing a whole host of global weathercatastrophe'ss. But are all the affects of global warming bad? Is there perhaps some advantages to global warming? Some seem to think so. This article, Is Global Warming Always Bad?, provides some interesting insight into global warming. Here are some quotes:
Alarming news often leads to government funding... Good news threatens that arrangement.
How could there be such a disconnection between a computer simulation and reality? Why don't scientists check for this before they publish their papers?
In the first warming, 45 percent of Kilimanjaro's ice cap disappeared. When the planet subsequently cooled, it lost another 21 percent. In the recent warming, another 12 percent has gone, the slowest rate of loss in the last 100 years.
The fact is that Kilimanjaro's glaciers vary greatly, with or without global warming.While I don'tnecessarilyy thing that we shouldn't consider that global warming could be a treat, its always good to look at things in a balance perspective.
