Global Warming-some facts we wished were not true....

GLOBAL WARMING Some facts we wished were not true…

Some facts we wished were not true… Average temperatures have climbed 1.4 degrees F (0.8 degree Celsius) around the world since 1880, much of this in recent decades- NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

Some facts we wished were not true… The 20th century's last two decades were the hottest in 400 years…… The United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports that 11 of the past 12 years are among the dozen warmest since 1850.

Some facts we wished were not true… The Arctic is already feeling the effects….. Average temperatures in Alaska, western Canada, and eastern Russia have risen at twice the global average, according to the multinational Arctic Climate Impact Assessment report compiled between 2000 and 2004.

Some facts we wished were not true… Arctic may have its first completely ice-free summer by 2040 or earlier.… Polar bears and indigenous cultures are already suffering from the sea-ice loss.

Some facts we wished were not true… Glaciers and mountain snows are melting rapidly…. Montana's Glacier National Park now has only 27 glaciers, versus 150 in 1910. In the Northern Hemisphere, thaws also come a week earlier in spring and freezes begin a week later.

Some facts we wished were not true… Coral reefs, suffered the worst bleaching ever recorded in 1998, with some areas seeing bleach rates of 70 percent… Experts expect these sorts of events to increase in frequency and intensity in the next 50 years as sea temperatures rise.

Some facts we wished were not true… An upsurge in extreme weather events, such as wildfires, heat waves, and strong tropical storms, is also attributed in part to climate change by some experts.….

Take steps NOW… else, face the consequence……….
