It is NO Secret…..

It is no secret that our planet is heating up.  Earth is warming to dangerously high levels, which will place the very survival of humanity in jeopardy.  Several statements and discussions have been made by those whom study this subject regularly, and whom actually know the details behind the factors that sustain this subject.  Anticipations project that our planet will experience a significant rise in it’s overall temperature during this century.

Details are revealing that Earth will have a two-degree increase in it’s overall temperature by 2100.  That might not sound like much, until you factor in that this increase involves the entire planet.  This temperature change, although it may sound miniscule, will have a major effect in the manner in which Earth is capable of supporting life.

Climatologists are estimating that our planet will have an exceptional level of global warming.  Researchers whom work with The United Nations’ World Meteorological Organization are stating fervently that the levels of greenhouse gases around the globe are reaching record levels.  Furthermore, these levels are increasing, with very little being done to abate their abusive advances.  While several nations allegedly are working to limit individual productions of greenhouse gases, it does seem as if the overall efforts are not beneficial.

The United Nations’ World Meteorological Organization is stating that three specific greenhouse gases have extreme levels, and they continue to increase.  While several nations are making efforts to reduce these dangerous emissions, the majority of the tactics are not working.  Due to this, concerned world leaders are having a meeting that will be held in South Africa, during next week.  The discussion will focus upon global climate change.

A similar session was held in Copenhagen, during 2009.  At that meeting, agreements were made to set limits that were supposed to maintain the levels of dangerous emissions and productions that have been contributing to global warming.  As these levels continue to increase at seriously dangerous levels, another session will occur in South Africa.  This is to occur in the city of Durban, lasting from November 28 to December 9.  At this meeting, world leaders are supposed to discuss global warming, while presenting plans to curtail the devastation that this climatic catastrophe is presenting to our planet.

Talks are supposed to occur that will allow world leaders to recognize what laws and policies are in place within various locations around the planet.  Various national laws to cope with climate change, and to address methods of curtailing the dangerous effects, will be examined.  Ideas for new methods and national laws to assist with this planetary problem will be presented, while focusing on the actions currently in place by Australia and China.  These nations already have initiated plans to reduce pollution, and they are working to create additional ideas that are meant to suggest methods of more efficient energy use.

It is The International Energy Agency which is displaying how the current methods of energy use and global pollution will lead into an overall situation of global decline.  The IEA is specifying that extreme levels of climate and weather changes will occur, provided that our planet remains on it’s current, human-lead path.  Estimates show that by 2020, dangerous emissions will have risen by twenty percent from the present levels.  Such an increase will raise the overall temperature of the planet by 38.3 degrees, Fahrenheit.  This temperature change has the capability to produce severe droughts, and excessive levels of rainfall around the planet.  IEA officials are saying that changes need to be made by 2017, lest a mandatory, zero-carbon emission policy is put into place for every nation by 2035.  The longer that delays to make these changes occur, the greater will be the amount of money that is needed to curtail the deadly effects of climate change.

The agreements set by The Kyoto Protocol were invoked, as levels of encouragement to move into immediate action.  During this 1997 international meeting, held in Japan, nations agreed upon a treaty that was meant to reduce the dangerous effects of global warming by significant levels.  Thirty-seven nations agreed immediately to work toward efforts at reducing global warming by drastically cutting their productions of the four major greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and sulfur hexaflouride).  However, The United States was NOT one of these nations!

The U.S. has implemented the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.  This began during 2009, with plans to reduce power emissions from ten states.  Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachussetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont have agreed to cut energy wasting within their borders. However, as forty other states have not committed to any solid plans to assist with greenhouse gas reduction, The United States remains at the back end of the path to promote any permissable plans that will protect our planet!

However, nations within North America, along with Asia, Australia, Europe, and Oceania, have committed to plans for protecting against, if not preventing, climate change.  These will present meaningful efforts to curtail the dangerous effects of greenhouse gas emissions, and other serious problems that will create dangerous, if not deadly levels, of alterations that humanity is inflicting upon Earth.  Particularly, it seems as if The Kyoto Protocol is the most effective plan, to-date, that means to work toward reducing the effects of global warming.

The levels of greenhouse gases that are being emitted around our planet, at extreme levels, require immediate reduction, if not an altogether elimination.  If immediate action does not happen, it is certain that levels of global warming will increase.  This ultimately will lead to extreme levels of ocean rising, polar ice cap melting, sporadically heavy rainfalls, intense droughts, unusual animal migrations, increases of insect populations, and uncontrolled animal extinctions.  These major changes ultimately will lead to drastic changes within planetary ecosystems, which likely will lead to a major threat to our own survival as a species.
