Discussions Discussion Is climate change real? Is it mostly human …
Sophie FSeattleUSA, April 30, 2012

I don’t understand why people don’t believe that climate change is real. It is happening all around us; it’s impossible to ignore. Just looking at your carbon footprint, like this challenge allows you to do, shows people that just one person alone is sending thousands of carbon dioxide gas particles into the atmosphere. We know the cause; and we’ve seen the effect. Polar bears and other arctic animals are losing their habitats as ice melts from global warming. Polar bears rely on seals to eat, and they rely on ice to hunt seals. Polar bears could go extinct if global warming continues. Global warming also raises water level; which could put many coastal areas underwater. It is very much real; and happening as we speak.

If anyone is interested, there is a fiction book called Shipbreaker. The reason I bring it up is because it appears to be set in a futuristic United States after global warming has put half of the country underwater. I suggest reading it; it’s a great book.

    I believe in climate change and I believe that the carbon footrprint can be removed easily with some ambition. Ambition to care enough about the enviornment enough to change your daily life habits. I believe, love and care for your struggle, Kudos.

    I believe that climate change is a natural cycle that the earth goes through, and this cycle is to long for humans to notice because the earth is 4.5billion years old and humans have only been here for a small fraction of that time. For example a butterfly only lives 2weeks do u think it has any knowledge of the season changes

    The fact that there is global climate change, and generally global warming, should not be considered an opinion that you can either believe or not. It is true that since the beginning of the earth, temperatures have fluctuated between ice ages. It is true that naturally, it is right that we should be experiencing temperature change, but not to the degree we are now. For 650,000 years, atomospheric levels have never been this high, and at the rate it is increasing, it is obvious that humans are the cause. CO2 is a heat trapping gas, and so when it builds up in our atmosphere, it becomes warmer. Please visit this link to NASA's website below for more info http://climate.nasa.gov/evidence/
