Climate Changing on Every Continent

Er... Global Climate Destabilization

Warmer Antarctica Shows Climate Changing on Every Continent

Humanity's impact on climate has been detected on every continent except Antarctica, or so said the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in February 2007. No longer: scientists, comparing decades of records from 17 Antarctic weather stations with computer simulations of Earth's climate, found that human-induced global warming has been heating up the continent that is home to the South Pole, as well.

"We have detected the human fingerprint in both the Arctic and Antarctic region[s]," says Peter Stott, a climate modeler at the U.K. Met (meteorological) Office's Hadley Center, and co-author of the study published in the journal Nature Geoscience.

The researchers compared 100 years of weather records from the Arctic and 50-plus years of those kept on Antarctica with the results of four computer models. Their findings: natural influences such as changes in the amount of sunlight or volcanic eruptions did not explain the warming trends, but the results matched when increasing levels of greenhouse gas emissions were added to the mix.

Re: Climate Changing on Every Continent

It was and will be always changing. From the hot Volcanic days to the Ice Age to now. Tulare California was just a swamp/lake 200 years ago it is now Americas largest Dairy area or as we call it Dairy Air.
I noticed where I live we have fosselized sea shells even though we live 50 miles and over a Mountain Range from the Pacific Ocean.
Can we stop global warming I don't think so but we can keep our air clean.

Re: Climate Changing on Every Continent

If we do nothing to stop the global heating, large areas of the earth may become uncomfortable, or even difficult, to live in. Vast food-producing areas may become substantially less productive. There might be severe fresh water rationing, but more rain and floods.

And, yes, it IS something that we can do something about, if we really want to, and get organized.

Those who would rather rape the planet to get additional $$$ in their pockets could be taxed or legislated into submission.

However, when we allow people to "bribe" the government to be permitted to log all the trees (or other such things), we cannot expect much help from "our" government. Changes are needed if one wants to maintain a comfortable, "nice" sphere on which to live. One significant change is ... less people.

Well, i agree to that. Sometimes, we cant depend on the government solely for it to be prevented. However, reducing the population may be a way to reduce the emissions as well as cutting down the advancements in technology.

Just exactly how will you 'reduce' the population? From the emotive languge you employ, it would appear that you don't so much love the environment, as just hate humanity?

Maybe that's overly harsh, but be careful, revolutions have a nasty habit of devouring their own children!
