The question of global warming is a tricky one. How can we know what the weather will be like in fifty years when meteorologists struggle to make accurate predictions for the weekend. Indeed, the global warming myth has become severely shrouded in emotional appeal and political correctness, lacking both scientific basis and not answering the right questions.
First off, global warming proponents claim that the ice caps melt daily. Well, ice melts and water freezes all the time. The fact that the polar ice caps presently recede should be of no alarm. The earth goes through a regular cycle of melting and freezing the polar ice caps. Scientists panic when they see water levels rise in the oceans, and politicians carry on the cry. With science’s advanced satellite technology, scientists possess the ability to measure changes to the slightest degree. Hence, we panic when we hear water that water levels rose a few inches. The truth is that water levels change all the time. In fact, the earth used to be a much warmer place. There were in the Middle Ages many vineyards in Northern England that today no longer exist because of a cooler climate. Street names with vineyard prefixes or suffixes bear tribute to this. Thus it would be better for the earth to warm up, instead of cool down. Another ice age would be devastating to mankind. We have only advanced so far because of favorable climate conditions. Whole regions of our planet would become inhabitable, covered in snow and ice. Could the earth be due for another ice age? Maybe...
Secondly, the idea that CO2 is to blame for global warming is very, very questionable. The famous Vostok ice cores do not show any correlation between global warming and CO2 levels. The CO2 levels rose after a heat spell. CO2, in comparison to other gases in our atmosphere, remains miniscule. Yet no one cries out against the most notorious green house gas: water vapor. The vast amounts of water vapor in our atmosphere in the form of clouds keep our planet warm and livable.
Thirdly, the question should not be whether or not the climate is changing (because it changes all the time), but whether or not humans are the culprits. Yet even this remains highly questionable. We are made to believe that seven billion people can effect change on our planet due to the overpopulation myth, which claims an inevitable termination of earth’s natural resources. However, the world and its population, every family, could have a house and some land on a landmass the size of Texas. This of course is hugely insignificant to the size of planet earth and when compared to the millions, if not billions of insects in addition to all the other animals. All the cars that we drive and the gas we expel via respiration produce much less CO2 than the volcanic eruptions that spew many tons of gases into the atmosphere. And the earth is fine after these eruptions.
Do we need to seek to limit or stop pollution altogether? Yes, but we should respect and care for our planet and not become slaves to it. Climate change? Yes. Global warming? No. Get the facts. Global warming myth.

The global warming will increase humidity in tropical deserts. Also the higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere trigger plant growth. As predicted, due to the global warming the sea levels will rise.Global warming is affecting many parts of the world. Global warming makes the sea rise, and when the sea rises, the water covers many low land islands. This is a big problem for many of the plants, animals, and people on islands. The water covers the plants and causes some of them to die. When they die, the animals lose a source of food, along with their habitat. Although animals have a better ability to adapt to what happens than plants do, they may die also. When the plants and animals die, people lose two sources of food, plant food and animal food. They may also lose their homes. As a result, they would also have to leave the area or die. This would be called a break in the food chain, or a chain reaction, one thing happening that leads to another and so on. www.globalwarmingsurvivalcenter.com
