The issue of global warming has become a hot topic in not only in American, but all over the world. For years, many politicians have evaded the issue of global warming. But now, all of a sudden, the Democratic Party vows to combat global warming. Now that the Democratic Party has majority in both houses on Congress, they have taken an emphasis over environmental issues, mostly involving global warming. On January 30th, 2007, Congress held its first hearing about global warming. What was concluded in that hearing was that global warming is a fact, and that it is caused by humans.
AY Gore conveniently released a movie called Cute Inconvenient truth", a movie that showed AY Gore giving a speech about the Diffracts' on global warming and its C]irrefutable' repercussion. Just this past February, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a summary that blamed global warming on CO released into the atmosphere by humans. With scientist backing claims that CO is causing global warming, the majority of Americans have made the decision that global warming is in fact true.
But what Americans are not exposed is the scientist that claim climate change is part of Earth's cycle, and that it right on schedule. The EPIC found that the amount of CO in the atmosphere is causing the rise in temperature on Earth. This, in effect, is causing polar ice caps to melt, flooding Ocean's with fresh water. The EPIC says that the flood of freshwater in the Ocean is causing weather patterns to change. But claim that the amount of CO in the air is causing global warming is not correct. Last year, Carleton University Professor Tim Patterson appeared before the Commons
Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development. He testified that there is no correlation between the CO levels and the Earth's temperature. He states his findings that 450 million years ago the amount of CO in the atmosphere was over ten times greater than they are now, and during that time, the earth was experiencing its coldest period ever. How does the Earth heating have anything to do with the increase in CO if the Earth has been known to be cooling with high amounts of CO in the air?
The EPIC and AY Gore have both stated that the polar ice caps are melting uh to global warming, noting that some scientist have never seen anything like this. In his movie, AY Gore shows a dramatic display of the ice caps in Antarctica melting and breaking off. Dry. Boris Windcheater, former marine researcher at the Geological Survey of F-inland says that the breaking of glacier walls in Antarctica is normal in the advance of a glacier. Windcheater explains, "In Antarctica the temperature is low enough to prohibit melting of the ice front, so if the ice is grounded, it has to break off in beautiful ice cascades.
If the water is deep enough icebergs will form. " Another professor from the Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology at Stockholm University, Dry. WIBNI Carlen, says that the temperature in Antarctica is indeed rising, but only slightly. But he also claims that more snow in accumulating than melting off. In "The Inconvenient Truth", AY Gore claims that over 200 cities and towns in Western American have experience all time records for temperature and that this is caused by global warming. According to a new study released by Dry.
Roy Spencer, Principal Research Scientist at the University of Alabama, it is not uncommon for many towns, out of the thousands, to experience record setting weather. His data reveals that recent temperatures in America were not unusual. A scientific group focusing on Climate Variability and Mechanisms conclude that the Earth's climate in the past 1 0,000 years is, "is now known to have been highly unstable and prone to major, rapid changes, especially warnings, that occurred briefly within a few decades or less.. The scientific community has made major strides in documenting the history of leaning-decal scale climate change. " In a paper that was published in Science Magazine, seven scientists concluded that the Earth is on a 1 500 year cycle. They found evidence by testing the carbon and beryllium isotopes in sediments that suggests the changes In surface winds and surface temperatures are caused solar output. They also found that the Earth has experience drastic temperature changes roughly ever 1 500 years, dating back 1000 A. D.
Two other scientists, Wolfgang Berger and Lurch von Radar, retrieved a 5,000 year old sediment from the Arabian Sea. It revealed an unnamed cold period before the Roman Empire, the 1 1 50-year Roman cycle, the 900-year Medieval cycle, and the beginning of the Modern Cycle. This means that the Earth has cooling cycles and warming cycles. They concluded that the Earth has been warming since 1 680, the lowest point of a cooling period called the Little Ice Age. With all the evidence the Government has been relaying that proves global warming to be true, why has a lot of information been left out?
