Our Environment, Global Warming, And How You Can Help!

There’s no question that our planet is warming up. Average global temperatures have risen around the world in the last 100 years, especially in the past 20 years. There are many theories out there when looking for answers to this, but only two are obvious. One of those theories is the idea that the Earth naturally goes through temperature cycles during the course of its existence. Another idea is that we as humans are introducing untold amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and this is causing the planet to heat up.

Regardless of how and why Earth is warming up, it’s happening, won’t stop anytime soon, and may be dangerous in the long run. Maybe it’s human activity or maybe it’s not, nobody will be able to tell us what the exact cause is. However, what we do know is the human population most certainly contributes to the warming of the planet. The good part is we have the power to slow it down and cut our carbon dioxide output down drastically.

There are many things you can do to help our environment and cut down on your carbon footprint, all of which are reductions of energy usage at home and on the road. First and foremost, replace all the light bulbs in all your residencies to the energy-efficient bulbs. This is huge and will save you hundreds of dollars a year on your power bill, thus promoting a cleaner environment. You can also replace your old appliances with newer, energy-efficient models. The same goes for your air conditioner. These are the top 3 ways to cut your power costs at home.

There’s now a 4th and big way to reduce your carbon footprint and power bill, that is, solar panels and wind turbines you can build yourself. You can find guides and manuals online that teach you about everything you need to know. The best part about this is how simple and easy it is to construct a green energy power system in your home. Not many people know about this, but it’s a serious money saver when comparing DIY green energy to professional installations. They cost tens and tens of thousands of dollars. If you’re interested in such projects there’s a popular new site on the internet that will feed you all the information you need.

Finally, and the most effective way to reduce your carbon footprint is to avoid driving your vehicle! Walk, jog, roller blade, or bike everywhere and anywhere you can. Get that blood pumping and the savings of fuel and energy mount up incredibly fast. If you can apply multiple techniques described here, I guarantee your energy costs will drop drastically.

Regardless of what’s causing global warming, we should all be striving to do our part and cut down our carbon footprints. Whether it’s turning the TV off at night or riding your bike to school, the Earth and the people inhabiting it will thank you.

If Global Warming is Not Real Then What Normal Cycles are Causing the Planet to Heat Up?

Despite what the media says not all scientists go for the Global Warming Theory. In fact, many cannot believe that the Theory has gotten this far. The reality is that the Earth has only heated up some 1.5 degrees average over the last 50 years and we cannot even be sure that is accurate because the measurements back then were not as good as today.

Sure we see some ice melting which would indicate a heating up of things, but how do we know that is not a regional shift cycle that occurs naturally? Of course if you try to debate this with a CO2 Man-Made Caused Global Warming Alarmist, they will ask;

If Global Warming is Not Real then What Normal Cycles are Causing the Planet to Heat Up?

The fact is that it could indeed be lots of things, so let us look at a few shall we?

Ice melting puts cool water into part of the ocean not normally cool, this changes dynamics and weather flows and patterns too. If weather patterns become less robust in some areas they do not allow the distributive affects to move the air and allow for less cooling, this changes airflows, it changes everything.

Ozone, is an issue, if you have whole in ozone you get ice melt, but if you have no heat escape you get more trapped heat. Lots of theories on what is causing the ozone issues. Remember 25 years ago everyone was worried that our human eyesight would go, skin cancer like the sheep in Tierra del Fuego, now we find Ozone holes closing but the ambient temperature is heating, another scare?

Ocean Surface Temps, huge issue and many things can cause this, greenhouse affect is not the only one. The resultant being ocean surface temps means we have more heat in those regions, changes everything. And mind you these are only three alternatives to the global warming (caused by mankind) theory, there are in fact nearly 20 possible or plausible explanations and still we are only talking 1.5 degrees over a 50 year period.

Please take this into consideration and dump the doom and gloom motif, it is not healthy for that level of stress over nothing. I certainly hope this article is of interest and that is has propelled thought. The goal is simple; to help you in your quest to be the best in 2007. I thank you for reading my many articles on diverse subjects, which interest you.
