Global Warming is a Real and Imminent Danger

A color image of Earth, as seen from Apollo 17 Alright people…

…Let’s be real about things – GLOBAL WARMING is REAL!!!

…And the consequences of global warming are REAL!!!

Take a look around you and the happenings going on. Use your own common sense instead of listening to every political person that disputes this fact.

It’s about money – They don’t want you to know it’s real. Why? Because it would cost businesses umpteen millions of dollars to change business practices to actually reduce emissions and other pollutants that contribute to this serious planetary issue.

What’s more important? A wallet-full of money or our precious planet and it’s most precious inhabitants – including us as humans?

The thing is, even if there’s a chance that this is going on, it’s more than worthy of addressing the issue and combating what causes global warming…It’s only to our benefit in the end regardless!

Right now, more than anything, we’re seeing the areas of the planet that are coldest reaping serious consequences from this global warming.

Polar bears can’t get far enough out to sea on the ice sheets to capture enough food to eat (seals that come up through holes in the ice for air), which is unfortunate…These hunting seasons keep them alive the rest of the year.

Without enough food, they won’t have enough energy in fat stores to last the other months…

Desperate for food, these bears are needing to venture further and further out on the ice sheets where earlier and earlier each year, the ice breaks up – often leaving these polar bears too far from land to be able to swim back, especially if the ice breaks and drifts without them being aware of it.

This past spring/summer in Antarctica, on the opposite pole of the world, the ice shelf has shrunken drastically and actually, a huge chunk broke off this past year and every year it shrinks more and more…

It’s the only place on the planet where Emperor Penguins live!!!

Also, as more temperate, tropical waters are heating up more and more around the equator, more of the marine animals are moving towards the poles where they’re more comfortable and adept to feeding on fish in the waters and living in newly warmed environments.

This means more and more competition for the arctic and antarctic whales and porpoises too.

Please, do your part by first of all admitting there is a dire problem with a serious need to address it and combat global warming.

Then, reduce your waste, reuse materials and recycle what you can’t reuse. Car pool and reduce your carbon footprint. Everyone can make a difference!

    Go back to sleep………………..

    It’s hard to believe there are still people out there who still accept what they see on TV……………

    Well never mind, Michael Jackson’s funeral is on, gotta go!

  2. My goodness…we are cynical…

    Well, personally, I think it would be silly to ignore all of the signs around us that we see with our very own eyes…I don’t have to be told on television what’s going on.

    A good friend has a sister that moved to Nunavut in Canada maybe about 10 years ago now and she visits every few years and speaks with her sister regularly.

    Even they have noticed, in 1 decade, how much of a marked difference there is in the weather – how much warmer it is in summer, how much milder it is in winter. Their winter lows aren’t nearly as harsh as the were when they moved there…

    I rarely watch television, in fact – yes, I’m online a lot, but don’t get caught up in all the “hype”…I can, however, see with my own eyes what’s going on…

    We live in Niagara Falls half the year and Dallas half the year. I’ve noticed marked differences in the winters in Canada – they are so much milder than when I was a teen or a child…

    Dallas summers are ridiculously hot – steady heat streaks and crazy weather all around…

    Hope you have a good sleep…

    Kimberly
