Global warming is a serious problem that needs serious attention. The overwhelming majority of the world’s leading climate scientists agree that global warming is happening and that humans are partly to blame.
Civilization has been constructed around a more or less predictable global climate change. Generations of people have built fishing villages, ports, and cities on the coasts, assuming that water would rise and flow to the same shorelines every year.
They have built dams to catch rivers and streams that flood with snowmelt every spring, dikes to withstand raging seas, and irrigation systems to carry water to areas that never see a cloud.
They have planted crops according to seasonal rainfall and frost and colonized islands, thinking them pristine and safe from outside interference.
In the 20th century, however, these certainties have been called into question. The effects of global warming will likely cost human society dearly.
The situation however, remains complex and paradoxical in general. Some scientists believe that global warming is not a threat and the world is essentially cooling.
They argue that the factors causing the problem and the measures are not fully understood, and it is impossible to draw conclusions if global warming is a purely natural event. These people believe that the trend is a hoax and that is not a sign of a global disaster ahead.
In addition, the strengths of the industry assert that human beings can adapt to the changes caused by global warming, but they refuse to talk about something about the environmental impact of climate change.
