Global Warming Effect

IT is estimated that we are going to die pretty soon, like about in quarter a century. It's really sad, since a lot of us will not get to see our grandchildren, become really old and filthy rich. The question is, will we die from a giant meteor incident on earth by the aliens? Or will be dying from the expansion of the sun? It's nothing extravagant really; the earth will just become a huge puddle of water, as global warming hits the charts.


The Arctic becomes Smoking Hot
Temperature change in the Arctic is happening at a greater rate than other places in the Northern Hemisphere, and this is expected to continue in the future. Once again, we're going to drown.


Taken together, the size and speed of the summer sea-ice loss over the last few decades is highly unusual compared to events from previous thousands of years, especially considering that changes in Earth's orbit over this time have made sea-ice melting less, not more, likely.


The next thing you'll see is beach parties in the Arctic, barbecues and chicks in…er you get the point.


CO2 makes the sea creatures depressed.
Deep-sea animals may be highly sensitive to environmental changes in carbon dioxide concentration and pH, the predicted consequences of deep-sea carbon confiscation. A study by researchers exposes the need for more research on the biological impacts of CO2 injection in the ocean. We might as well stop exhaling. Hey, it's for the sea creatures!


In a survey of the relevant literature, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) marine ecologist Brad Seibel and his colleague Patrick Walsh of the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science summarize how deep-sea animals respond to the physiological stress caused by increased carbon dioxide in their environment.


“We set out to synthesize and disseminate what is known about deep-sea life physiology in the context of the environmental changes that are likely to result from carbon sequestration," said Seibel, a marine ecologist. Increasing CO2 causes a decrease in seawater pH, creating an acidic environment that must be compensated for by physiological responses in living organisms."


Decreased pH can result in metabolic suppression which can inhibit growth and reproduction. Previous studies have established that deep-sea fish and invertebrates have low metabolic rates. Consequently, they lack the metabolic machinery required to compensate body fluid pH changes.


Fueling up global warming
An insecticide used to sterilize termite-infested buildings is a strong greenhouse gas that lives in the atmosphere nearly 10 times longer than previously thought, UC Irvine research has found. And there we were going to stop exhaling CO2


Sulfuryl fluoride, UCI chemists discovered, stays in the atmosphere at least 30-40 years and perhaps as long as 100 years. Prior studies estimated its atmospheric lifetime at as low as five years, grossly underestimating the global warming potential.


“Sulfuryl fluoride has a long enough lifetime in the atmosphere that we cannot just close our eyes,” said Sulbaek Andersen, a postdoctoral researcher in the Rowland-Blake laboratory and lead author of the study. “The level in the atmosphere is rising fast, and it doesn't seem to disappear very quickly.”


Kilogram for kilogram, sulfuryl fluoride is about 4,000 times more efficient than carbon dioxide at trapping heat, though much less of it exists in the atmosphere.


Sulfuryl fluoride blocks a wavelength of heat that otherwise could easily escape the Earth, the scientists said. Carbon dioxide blocks a different wavelength, trapping heat near the surface.


It all adds up to the fact that we are doomed, as always. Still hoping all of us plant trees rather than cutting and burning em up…
