Facts about global warming effects
Global warming threatens our health, our economy, our natural resources, and our children’s future. It is clear we must act.
– Eliot Spitzer
1. Myth: Global warming isn’t real:
Fact: If you only look at one side of the coin without doing research, you’re left to your own personal preference of what you believe is real. Thwarted by political ambitions, scientific interests, and other factors, it’s hard to truly know what’s real and what’s conjecture. Truth is, science isn’t always perfect, but then again, we can’t just ignore what’s happening around us either.
2. Myth: Global warming causes droughts:
Fact: Scientific research shows conflicting reports. If global warming and greenhouse effects really occur, there should be more moisture in the air, not less.
3. Myth: We can stop global warming if we wanted to:
Fact: Conspiracy theories hold strong with oil industries and political leaders being blamed for not stopping “global warming.” Truth is, there’s no guarantee that if global warming exists, we can do anything about it.
4. Myth: Global warming will eventually make the earth uninhabitable:
Fact: While no one can predict future events, and species have become extinct over time, the fact that the world will cook us to death renders no evidence or support from scientific facts.
5. Myth: Global warming will only get worse if we don’t stop using oil:
Fact: If we stopped burning oil all together, chances are that wouldn’t stop global temperature from rising. Many factors keep and regulate the earth’s temperature, not just the burning of fossil fuels.
6. Myth: Seasons are getting shorter:
Fact: Seasons like spring are crucial in planting venues around the world. According to most recent almanacs, summer, spring, winter, and fall are still arriving on time as they have in the past.
7. Myth: The meat industry is to blame for global warming:
Fact: Before the drastic rise in animal farms for food, there were thousands of species that produced methane gases.
8. Myth: The food chain is being disrupted:
Fact: With climate change, scientists argue the disruption will cause a huge gash in the animal world. So far, no rupture has resulted or caused a kink in the animal food chain.
