IS IT GLOBAL WARMING? IS IT TOO LATE?

We are seeing the headlines pop up in all the major News sources. Here is the New York Times:

In Weather Chaos, a Case for Global Warming

Published August 14, 2010

The floods battered New England, then Nashville, then Arkansas, then Oklahoma and were followed by a deluge in Pakistan that has upended the lives of 20 million people.

The summer’s heat waves baked the eastern United States, parts of Africa and eastern Asia, and above all Russia, which lost millions of acres of wheat and thousands of lives in a drought worse than any other in the historical record.

Seemingly disconnected, these far-flung disasters are reviving the question of whether global warming is causing more weather extremes.

Here is SCIENCE DAILY:

Indonesian Ice Field May Be Gone in a Few Years, Core May Contain Secrets of Pacific El Nino Events

ScienceDaily (Aug. 11, 2010) – Glaciologists who drilled through an ice cap perched precariously on the edge of a 16,000-foot-high Indonesian mountain ridge say that the ice field could vanish within in the next few years, another victim of global climate change.

The Ohio State University researchers, supported by a National Science Foundation grant and the Freeport-McMoRan mining company and collaborating with Meteorological, Climatologically and Geophysical Agency (BMKG) Indonesia and Columbia University, drilled three ice cores, two to bedrock, from the peak’s rapidly shrinking ice caps.

Dr. Pinna says:

We are seeing evidence all around us of Global Warming. The skeptics have very little evidence to deny the fact that the climate is changing dramatically.

The crucial question is: Can Global Warming be stopped?

In my opinion, Global Warming cannot be stopped! The population of the world is too immense. Seven billion people are on this planet and they all want to use energy for every task.

Most of the people are scientifically illiterate. They know nothing about weather and climate. They do not realize that energy does not disappear, it simply changes form and moves from one area of molecules to another.

We are taking the accumulation of billions of years of solar heating and releasing it within a period of a few decades. The only result can be the extraordinarily rapid heating of the planet.

We are seeing thousands of people dying today. Because there are seven billion people, the dying seem insignificant. In the next few years we will see hundreds of thousands of people dying, and even that will be tolerable to our minds. It will only be when the planet becomes insufferably hot that people will suddenly realize that the end is near. At that point it will be too late.

The total cessation of the use of hydrocarbons, and the total reforestation of the planet, might, only “might” stop the process. That will never happen.

  1. A simile is a figure of speech comparing two unlike things, often introduced with the words “like”, “as”, or “than”.[1] Even though similes and metaphors are both forms of comparison, similes allow the two ideas to remain distinct in spite of their similarities, whereas metaphors compare two things without using “like” or “as”. For instance, a simile that compares a person with a bullet would go as follows: “Chris was a record-setting runner and as fast as a speeding bullet.” A metaphor might read something like, “When Chris ran, he was a speeding bullet racing along track.”
