It is vulnerable because it is so thin. I asked myself how did I really want to spend my time on Earth? Through a Keynote presentation dubbed "the slide show" that he has presented worldwide, Gore reviews the scientific evidence for global warming, discusses the politics and economics of global warming, and describes the consequences he believes global climate change will produce if the amount of human-generated greenhouse gases is not significantly reduced in the very near future.
In an effort to explain the global warming phenomenon, the film examines annual temperature and CO2 levels for the pastyears in Antarctic ice core samples. One major study came out less than a month before Hurricane Katrina hit.
Reduction from increased vehicle efficiency by manufacturing cars that run on less gas and putting more hybrid and fuel-cell cars on the roads. Carbon exchange market can cap-and-trade CO2 like we did SO2 When acid rain was falling on parts of the US back in the s, an innovative program helped to clean up the polluted precipitation.
Use market capitalism as ally of environmentalism One of the keys to solving the climate crisis involves finding ways to use the powerful force of market capitalism as an ally. Just 40 years ago Lake Chad was as large as Lake Erie--formerly the 6th largest lake in the world.
Paradoxically, however, global warming also causes not only more flooding, but also more drought. With bipartisan support, Congress put in place a system for buying and selling emissions of sulfur dioxide SO2the main culprit behind acid rain.
According to this way of thinking, if exploitation results in injury to the environment, so be it: Meltwater from Greenland, because of its lower salinity, could halt the Gulf Stream current and quickly trigger dramatic local cooling in Northern Europe.
But as [the historical] thermometer shows, the vaunted Medieval Warm Period was tiny compared to the enormous increases in temperature of the last half-century. Where CO2 is now ppm--is way above anything measured in the prior ,year record. These companies want to prevent any new policies that would interfere with their current business plans that rely on the massive unrestrained dumping of CO2 into the Earth atmosphere every day.
These people--especially those at a few multinational companies with the most at stake--have been spending many millions of dollars every year in figuring out ways of sowing public confusion about global warming. A new study shows that for the first time, polar bears have been drowning in significant numbers.
There is a misconception that the scientific community is in a state of disagreement about global warming. A similar approach can speed up the reduction of CO2 emissions.
Al Gore points out that all of human history has happened on that tiny pixel, which is our only home. But if sea levels rose 20 feet worldwide, the site of the World Trade Center Memorial would be underwater.
A study by researchers at the Physics Institute at the University of Bern and the European Project for Ice Coring in Antarctic presenting data from Antarctic ice cores showing carbon dioxide concentrations higher than at any time during the pastyears.
While Lake Chad withered, intense drought set the stage for the violence that erupted in neighboring Darfur, a war-torn region of Sudan. Reduction from increased reliance on renewable energy technologies that already exist. Naomi Oreskes of peer-reviewed scientific articles on global climate change published between and Scientific basis Main article: The previous record was 7.
We helped manufacture the suffering in Africa, and we have a moral obligation to try to fix it. But inscientists theorized that as CFCs rose into the upper atmosphere, their molecules would be broken down by the sun, releasing chlorine into the ozone layer and setting in motion a dangerous chain reaction.
The film includes many segments intended to refute critics who say that global warming is insignificant or unproven.

In fact, if you look at the 21 hottest years measured, 20 of the last 21 occurred within the last 25 years. One of the reasons for this paradox has to do with the fact that global warming not only increases precipitation worldwide but at the same time causes some of it to relocate.
The environment had for years been at the forefront of my policy concerns, but it had been competing for attention with a lot of issues. An analogy to Hurricane Katrina is used for those familiar with the ft to ft 9 to 14m waves that destroyed almost a million homes in coastal Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, and Florida.
The hottest year on record during this entire period was We have to act affirmatively to stop the harm. In an effort to explain the global warming phenomenon, the film examines annual temperature and CO2 levels for the pastyears in Antarctic ice core samples.An Inconvenient Truth: The Crisis of Global Warming Library Binding – April 10, Best Part: The best part of An Inconvenient truth is the ending.
