Transcript of Global Warming

-Merriam Webster Dictionary
an increase in the earth's atmospheric and oceanic temperatures widely predicted to occur due to an increase in the greenhouse effect resulting especially from pollution
Global
Warming
the world is on
fire
.
the
flames
spread
they engulf the entire
globe
The flames are not literal. They are are a metaphor for
death
and
destruction
. A metaphor for
terror
and
ruin.
The cataclysm behind the impending Apocalypse is
global warming
water vapor
global

warming
is caused by a phenomenon called
methane
carbon dioxide
nitrous oxide
the greenhouse effect
ozone
an atmospheric heating phenomenon, caused by short wave solar radiation being readily transmitted inward through the earth's atmosphere but longer wave length radiation less readily transmitted outward.

translated into common-tongue English this can be understood in the form of a real greenhouse.
Dictionary.com describes The Greenhouse Effect as being an atmospheric
heating
phenomenon, caused by short-wave solar radiation being readily transmitted inward through the earth's atmosphere but longer-wave length radiation less readily transmitted outward.
To think of this in its simplest form, think of a
greenhouse
. A glass building in which plants are grown if they need protection from cold weather. What makes a greenhouse work is that the sunlight can shine in through the glass but the heat can not escape out of the building. The heat is trapped inside the greenhouse and keeps the entire building nice and warm.
The same thing is true for the
World
, We have a shield of:
Acting as the glass in our
greenhouse
.
Avoid
using vehicles with
gas emissions.
Renewable
Energy
Solar

energy
is the most really available resource available to us. The energy the sun is giving us is 10,000 times the energy humans currently use.
Solar-power
is the conversion of sunlight into electricity. If humans could harness the power of the sun, we would solve a-lot of the worlds current energy problems. We could also begin to undo the harm done to the worlds atmosphere.
Wind power
is another alternative for generating electricity. A wind turbine turns kinetic energy from the wind into mechanical energy which can be used to make electricity. The main drawback of this is that the turbines cost millions of dollars. whereas electricity created by burning coal is very cheap energy
Turn down the temperature of your washing machine; it helps conserve power.
Use less electricity; switch off
lights,

lamps,

computers,

TVs
and other
appliances
when they're not in use.
Drive your bike or scooter more often
Or, simply try
Use your bike or scooter more often rather than gas-emission-releasing vehicles.
CAR POOLING!
Driving cars, and burning gasoline, releasing carbon dioxide.
having cows and sheep that fart (seriously one of the things you find when you google this.)

food

transportation
and more

Recycle glass bottles and envelopes. Reuse lots of stuff and avoid buying new items of stuff you could simply recycle
Deforestation we
breathe out
Carbon Dioxide which is a greenhouse gas. Trees however convert C02 into Oxygen, therefore

the greenhouse gas. When we destroy forests, we

a natural way of controlling the greenhouse effect.
There are plenty of organizations pushing the fight against global warming.
The theory behind everything that is supposedly wrong with the world today is
global warming.
Humans are putting too many greenhouse gasses into the worlds atmospheric shield. We achieve this by:
Shower, don't bathe. It conserves water.
or is it a deceptive scheme designed to crush poor countries.
A film, called the Great Global Warming Swindle is: "a documentary that takes a strongly denialist view of current scientific thinking on climate change. It argues that the consensus on climate change is the product of "a
multibillion-dollar
worldwide industry: created by fanatically anti-industrial environmentalists; supported by scientists peddling scare stories to chase funding; and propped up by complicit politicians and the media""

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Great_Global_Warming_Swindle
There are a great many other interesting stories surrounding global warming. Thousands upon thousands of renowned scientists are against the
"go green"
movement. Sixteen scientists write in the 'Wall Street Journal' that there's no compelling scientific argument for drastic action to 'decarbonize' the world's economy.

It really makes me think. Are we really helping the planet? Or is this some great
hoax
designed to create
millions
of dollars for governments? To crush poorer countries by forcing them to employ technologies they cannot afford? A rise to fame for a
demented individual
? Or maybe some
sick scientist
decided the world needed saving so he built this massively publicized theory to get people more concerned about the environment?

However, perhaps the theory is true, and perhaps the world is going up in
flames
as we talk about why it may not be.

One thing is clear: we are certainly abusing our planet. Global Warming, true or not, can be a time for us to reconsider our footprint on earth.
Let us do more to
preserve
this place for
future generations.
The Green Party
Greenpeace
Climate Protection
GROCC
and many, many others!
Hydro-power
or the energy in
moving
water can be harnessed and used. Since water is about
800
times denser than air, even a slow flowing stream of water, or moderate sea swell, can yield considerable amounts of energy.
What's being done about it?
or you could try
Renewable
energy is energy that will never run out. Things like the force of
gravity
, falling
water
, the power of the
wind
, the rays of the
sun
are all ways we can create energy without harming our world.
What can
YOU
do to help?
is global warming real???
All this is good and proper but
