Several studies have shown that the global climate has become warmer over the last century. Global climates have become warmer due largely in part because of greenhouse gases that are produced by man. These gases are dangerous to our earth’s atmosphere. They disrupt the way our planet works and steal energy from the sun. Many global warming critics argue that global climate change is one hundred percent natural and man has no impact on the global climates. Many of the critic’s claims and theories have been debunked and proven to include false information. It seems that this might have been done in order to advance a political agenda. Only time will tell how this debate will pan out, but it would seem unlikely that politically driven critics who present false and dishonest information could win the debate over evidence of thousands of scientists and climate experts who make the study of global climates their profession.

Climate Change

Climate Change

* Climate is the overall median weather in a given place over the coarse of more than three decades. Global climates combine and average the weather from all regions. One study suggests that the global climate of the last ten years was the warmest decade in thousands of years.

* Some conservative politicians see global warming and it’s effect on global climates as a threat to some of their business relationships. Many companies that deal with oil and other fossil fuels will be left behind once we transition from these fuels to a new cleaner source of energy. Some suggest that these companies influence politicians in exchange for loyalty. Loyalty that will help them with tax cuts for big business and broaden their financial freedoms. This may be why many elected officials argue that the global climate is warmer due only to natural causes.

In an age before the internet and many of today’s technologies, it would seem more likely that proving global warming exists would be an almost impossible task. Not only would we not be able to find out lots of the information that we now can do to advances in science and technology, but it would incredibly difficult to spread the message of global warming. In 2010, there are so many programs for instant communication and that makes it a lot easier to inform people the dangers of global warming and what we can do as individuals to help prevent the the threat from getting worse. People who believe that the warmer global climate is due to mostly humans need to keep informing people about the issue. Scientists keep doing studies that prove this theory more and more as time goes on. In this case, knowledge is indeed power and we cannot let critics obstruct this important message just so they can stay in office and keep their friends rich.
