"Global Warming"- Pros & Cons

(farhan shariff, karachi)

Advantages and Disadvantages of Global Warming

Positive and Negative Effects of Global Warming to People and the Planet

In February 2007, the United Nations released a scientific report that concludes that global warming is happening and will continue to happen for centuries. The report also stated with 90% certainty that the activity of humans has been the primary cause of increasing temperatures over the past few decades.

With those conclusions and the conclusions of innumerable other scientists that global warming is here and will continue into the foreseeable future, I wanted to summarize the likely effects of global warming, into the advantages and disadvantages of global warming. First, we will look at the many disadvantages of global warming and then follow with the very small number of advantages of global warming.

Disadvantages of Global Warming

• Ocean circulation disrupted, disrupting and having unknown effects on world climate.
• Higher sea level leading to flooding of low-lying lands and deaths and disease from flood and evacuation.
• Deserts get drier leaving to increased desertification.
• Changes to agricultural production that can lead to food shortages.
• Water shortages in already water-scarce areas.
• Starvation, malnutrition, and increased deaths due to food and crop shortages.
• More extreme weather and an increased frequency of severe and catastrophic storms.
• Increased disease in humans and animals.
• Increased deaths from heat waves.
• Extinction of additional species of animals and plants.
• Loss of animal and plant habitats.
• Increased emigration of those from poorer or low-lying countries to wealthier or higher countries seeking better (or non-deadly) conditions.
• Additional use of energy resources for cooling needs.
• Increased air pollution.
• Increased allergy and asthma rates due to earlier blooming of plants.
• Melt of permafrost leads to destruction of structures, landslides, and avalanches.
• Permanent loss of glaciers and ice sheets.
• Cultural or heritage sites destroyed faster due to increased extremes.
• Increased acidity of rainfall.
• Earlier drying of forests leading to increased forest fires in size and intensity.
• Increased cost of insurance as insurers pay out more claims resulting from increasingly large disasters.

Advantages of Global Warming

• Arctic, Antarctic, Siberia, and other frozen regions of earth may experience more plant growth and milder climates.
• Northwest Passage through Canada's formerly-icy north opens up to sea transportation.
• Less need for energy consumption to warm cold places.
• Fewer deaths or injuries due to cold weather.
• Longer growing seasons could mean increased agricultural production in some local areas.
• Mountains increase in height due to melting glaciers, becoming higher as they rebound against the missing weight of the ice.

I'm waiting to see all the "Inundation of our skyscrapers" since approx. 75% of the Earth's surface is water. Ice that is floating in water will not raise the sea levels AT ALL if it melts. Melting ice that is supported by land will be the ONLY water source that can effect the normal sea/lake levels. Since only 25% of Earth's surface is land and only a small portion of land is "Ice Laden" there would be minimal effects only. Similar results might be obtained if we tried to cause sea levels to rise by "tinkling" in the oceans!!!!!!!!!!!!

To begin with, the most recent posts were written by people who can't evens spell correctly. Secondly, I could add several points on BOTH sides, but those would not change the balance of the point of the article, Lastly, the bias, with all of the other arguments on either side that are not mentioned, would not change the foregone conclusion that mankind is causing added global warming that will greatly skew the natural order of things, resulting in major disadvantages for young people who will face incredible challenges in the future

You need to read the inconvenient skeptic, he goes into the actual science behind all of global warming and the earths energy balance. He goes through all of the physics, and the political dirrection and missdirrection that has gone on. He runs all of the numbers, looks at hundreds of thousands of years worth of ice core data. He crunched 4 or 5 terabytes of data and spent a few years of work. If you are interested in knowing what is really going on with global warming, read his book. There is a lot of science in it, but that is really what getting to the bottom of this whole thing takes.

well, global warming can happen naturally, without the help of humans. and it has happened before. however, with the pollution that we have started, it is a fair estimate that this one is our fault assassin.
