Scientists have studied and analyzed the historical composition of the atmosphere, dating back tens of thousands of years, using ice core samples from the poles. They have used this data to determine that the current CO2 levels in the earth’s atmosphere are so excessive that they have caused a major increase in average global temperature. Yes, climate change runs in cycles, but they have proven that the increase in temperature is not due to natural factors, and is actually occurring contrary to historical cycles.I suggest educating yourself on the science and facts behind global warming before you try to judge the research conducted by the real experts in the matter.

It’s the fact that a dramatically growing number of people are dirving cars. I’m talking billions here. With the sudden growth of developing countries such as China there are even more motorists, and more coal burning factories to supply energy to growing cities. It’s about the sheer numbers. It’s about the amount of waste that over 6 billion organisms can produce. It’s about coal burning factories and huge plants that produce massive amounts of CO2. You can not put that much carbon out in the atmosphere over a span of approximately 150 years (industrial revolution is probably were I would put the start time) and expect nothing to change.

If you would let go of the tree and open your eyes to the past you would see that our climate runs in cycles of warm and cold. In the 70s and 80s they told us we were headed toward an ice age! These changes happen in regular patterns over thousands of years. How arrogant do you need to be to think we as a human race could influence our climate by driving cars? Please learn to research history and stop repeating what you hear from the radicals. Do you think you could manage that?

The accelerated changes in the past five years are so very, very, obvious.I ran at a local beach for over 12 years, but after a 4 year hiatus, returned last week. I was slammed with the immediate that climate change is now, it’s much worse than we think, and that it’s in our own backyards, recreation areas, and homes.How can we save these majestic animals? By getting busy now; not just filling our SUV tanks and thinking about it!

Try telling a polar bear it isn’t hungry!
