Global Warming Continues Its Popularity

I always include global warming news items since I started talking about the subject… being it immediately effects Antarctica and even polar bears. Mostly it’s the same stuff but every once in a while there are some new developments or bits of interest.

Both National Geographic and the Associated Press have recent articles discussing the melting ice raising sea levels drastically by the end of the century. I guess now is the time to get cheap future beachfront property for my retirement.

According to the BBC, Tony Blair has called for a “technological revolution comparable to the internet” to slow global warming. He has good reason to be concerned, I saw a special on TV the other day showing the posibility of glacial melt cooling the end of the Gulf Stream “conveyor” that brings warm water to western Europe. It could result in much of the UK becoming a winter wasteland.

Finally everyone, we can be “officially” worried because Time says so. Maybe we “should” have listened to all those crazy climate scientists.
