The Real Or Imagined Problem Of Global Warming

According to the website of the World Natural Health Organization, global warming is nothing more than a hoax like
Y2K. “Global warming is being used to generate fear and panic. Those behind this movement are using it to control
people’s lives and for financial gain.”

The German news agency “Deutsche Welle” however reports that the polar ice caps have melted faster in the last 20 years
than in the last 10,000. A comprehensive satellite study confirms that the melting ice caps are raising sea levels
at an accelerating rate. The primary cause is pointed at global warming.

Global warming is mainly the result of CO2 (carbon dioxide) levels rising in the earth’s atmosphere. Both atmospheric
CO2 and climate change are accelerating. Climate scientists say we have years, not decades, to stabilize CO2 and other
greenhouse gases.

Marine biologists say global warming causes ocean acidification. The ocean presently takes up one-fourth of the carbon
CO2 emitted to the atmosphere from human activities. As this CO2 dissolves in the surface ocean, it reacts with seawater
to form carbonic acid that increases ocean acidity.

While our understanding of the possible consequences of ocean acidification is still rudimentary, both the scientific
community and the society at large are increasingly concerned about the possible risks associated with ocean
acidification for marine organisms and ecosystems.

To help the world succeed, http://www.CO2Now.org makes it easy to see the most current CO2 level and what it means.
Use this site to keep an eye on CO2.  Invite others to do the same. Then we can do more to send CO2 in the right direction.
