Climate Panel, drawing on the work of 2,500 scientists and whose conclusions are endorsed by 130 or so governments (…including the Bush administration). It says it’s more than 90 percent likely that we’re to blame for warming. Try this summary for policymakers:http://www.ipcc.ch/pdf/asse ssment-report/ar4/syr/ar4_syr_spm.pdf

So much of the data is cherry-picked to say whatever they want, I would like to see a REAL study done to prove Global Warming even exists.

Obviously,this cannot be due to sunrays which fall uniformly all along a given latitude.The momentary heating up is caused by geothermal energy producing hot springs .Such streams of steam in the ocean change course continuously owing to hydrodynamics of the ocean waters.Any increase in rains will result in more water being pumped into the earth .Within the earth,water gets heated and comes out as steam. Temperature may be as high as 416 degree C.In this process,the socalled greenhouse gases have no role.

I believe that the ‘global warming’ that we are experiencing is part of a natural cycle of the Earth’s weather, but also that our actions are causing the changes to be more extreme and rapid than they might be otherwise.Whatever side of the fence you’re on- we need to clean up our act and start changing the way we live to have minimal negative impact on our world.

Everything and anything shouldn’t be linked to Global Warming. Weather has been changing world over and more importantly its never been the same forever.So why join global warming with bihar floodswww.its2hot.in
