First a note to the people, who like to read the BaseBlog, but doesn’t have any interest in environmental matters: this might be the last writing about global warming. Also because writing about it doesn’t make the problem go away – just as ignoring the problem won’t solve it either. You can find the other parts of my global warming trilogy here: part 1, part 2.
Just a few words about global warming and ice age!
Here’s one of the problems with global warming: imagine that the nice warm weather keep on coming – with temperatures rising each year.
First we notice the warmer seawater. As most people know, hurricanes grow over the sea; and the warmer the water is, the bigger the hurricane gets.
Then the ice at Greenland and the Poles start to melt faster. The water level rises, floods a lot of land all over the World and create millions of refugees.
The cold water from the melting ice suddenly makes an end to the Gulf Stream because the difference in temperatures, that makes the stream work, has been leveled out.
After the Gulf Stream stops, it’ll only take few years – some say 10 years, others think it’ll only take 2 or 3 years – before large parts of the World once more gets an ice age!
Luckily a lot of people won’t have to go through this. I’m talking about all the people who, before that, has drowned in the floods, or died from hunger or war.
Now you might have an idea why some of us think that global warming is a bad thing. And why a lot of politicians don’t want to talk about it. And why I don’t like to keep on writing about this topic in this blog, where I prefer to write about fun stuff.
