Global Warming

  • 15451 entries

Global Warming is often described with the more neutral phrase Global Climate Change or simply Climate Change. This is because mere "warming" did not succeed in convincing the public of climate changes predicted by a number of scientists to occur, such as increases in frequency and severity of tropical storms, a possible alteration of ocean circulation leading to drastically changed (though not necessarily warmed) local climates, and so on. And while most models predict a net warming of Earth's climate, it's not uniform and there are smaller areas of cooling (e.g., most of Antarctica, along with the far northeast North America and the north Atlantic). Global warming has become a major concern of humanity since the middle of the 20th century. It was namely then that the first increase in the Earth’s temperature was registered. The temperature became less than one degree higher, but just think of what it means on a global scale
